I'm sure you've heard of this little beauty! The latest release by Makeup Revolution has taken the blogosphere by storm and being a huge fan of the brand, neutral eyeshadows and chocolate, obviously I had to post on it! Say hello to a new favourite of mine: Naked Chocolate (£7.99)...
The I Heart Chocolate Palette has been such a well-loved part of my makeup collection so I was so excited they released this one. The shades are pretty much 'me' in a palette and the packaging is made up like a bar of white chocolate with the same big mirror and sturdiness of the others in the Chocolate range.
Now I've been able to use all the shades I can confirm that these eyeshades are fantastic quality just like the other chocolate palette I have! Is it just me or is this the first time in ages there's been a new product in the I Heart Makeup line?
They're pretty much a neutral-lover's paradise with a nice mix of mattes and shimmers, browns, golds, rose golds, taupes...
Sorry for the lighting change - the sun was being unreliable :(
Smoothly is your cream matte base! It's actually really nicely pigmented too. Divine is a gorgeous rose gold shimmer I absolutely love. Mocha Love still has a hint of rose gold but is darker and browner. Dipped is an earthier brown shimmer and Choc-Fest is a gorgeous pearlescent burgundy, though I did find Choc-Fest a little hard to blend out, which I didn't find with any other shades.
Adorable is a cream shimmer with a hint of pink. Buttons is a shimmery dark grey-brown, which is perfect for adding a bit of smokiness. I really like Frosted Choc, it's a warm shimmery golden brown. Delight is another shimmer, a dark grey with a slight hint of purple. Sweet Shop is a really well-pigmented warm brown matte. Suger is a purple-brown shade with a gorgeous pearlescent sheen.
I love the bright gold shimmer of Double Dip. Tob-le-rone is a sort of taupe matte, it could be a little more pigmented but it works well enough as a crease colour. White (odd name, but I did double-check it!) is a darker brown matte and it's super pigmented! Milky, is a pinker matte taupe, with a similar pigment to Tob-le-rone. Finally, Way is a funny colour; sort of a white, bright shimmer with a hint of yellow-gold which is a great inner-corner highlight.
Not a single shade had fallout and I find these last all day (though they aren't looking quite so fresh 10+ hours later). They're just beautiful and it's another big 'yes' from Makeup Revolution for me! I think there's a good selection of shades; it doesn't feel same-y, but they all fit the theme. I personally prefer shimmers so it doesn't bother me that there are fewer mattes, but I do like that they have a few in there. They have a nice, soft, blend-able texture and there isn't a proper dud in there at all.
