Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup: I Heart Chocolate

Chocolate Week time!!!!!!

So there are a number of things in life that I adore.  One of them is chocolate.  One of them is makeup.  When those two powers combine….. oh my goodness!

Makeup Revolution’s has a I Heart Makeup range that includes all kinds of chocolate themed products and this week we are going to explore these together.  In total I have four chocolate themed makeup products to share with you, so get excited 🙂

I Heart Makeup - Chocolate Palettes

I Heart Makeup – Chocolate Palettes

We are going to start ‘chocolate week’ with one of the MUR cult favourite chocolate palettes.  There are three chocolate palettes in the range: milk chocolate (I Heart Chocolate), dark chocolate (Death By Chocolate) and white chocolate (Naked Chocolate).  The packaging is completely divine in its melting chocolate form.  I actually have these on display in my girl cave.  So frickin’ cute.  I do think that these palettes smell sweet but they don’t have a strong chocolate smell.

Today I am going to spotlight the I Heart Chocolate palette in its milk chocolate case.

The palette comes with a clear slip that lists all the shade names which I think is a nice touch, but I would prefer that these were actually written on the palette itself.  The shade names are well cute.  There is also a really great mirror.

This palette is a dupe for the Two Faced Chocolate Bar Palette.  I don’t own the Two Faced palette to do a direct comparison for you but there are some excellent blog posts and youtube videos that show comparison swatches.

I think the quality of these shadows is excellent.  This palette has a nice mix of matte, shimmer, glitter and satin shades as well as a really good balance of neutrals and pops of colour.  There are two mattes that work well in the crease and I really appreciate having a matte and shimmer highlight shade; although they didn’t show up well in my swatches, both of the highlight shades work really well on the eye and inner corner.

The purple shade called unforgivable (swatch 5) actually has a pink duo chrome and is extremely pretty on the eye.  There are three glitter shades piece me together which is a dark olive shade (left of palette, swatch 2) which has gold glitters; love torn which is a maroon shade with gold glitter (right of palette, swatch 2) and then what a way to go  which is a deep plum with pink/purple micro glitters (right of palette, swatch 7).  I’m not really about glitter shades, but these shades certainly are beautiful and the glitter does transfer well to the eye, if that is your thing.

I think this palette is a great all-rounder.  You can wear it for an everyday work look or a dramatic, smokey night look.  If you have ever been tempted by the Two Faced Chocolate Bar Palette but don’t want to spend the AU$70 it will cost you then the I Heart Makeup I Heart Chocolate palette is a great option at just AU$17.  Even if this was the only thing you purchased from the MUR website and therefore you paid the full international shipping for this one item (about AU$16) this palette is still half the price of the original.  Bargain!

    Great post! I have been thinking about buying some MUR palettes for a while, as I think they’re a good dupe for Urban Decay ones too, but I wasn’t sure about the quality and pigmentation. This one looks good though!

      Thanks Nadia_H! I actually think that the MUR eyeshadow palettes are generally very good quality but I particularly love the chocolate palettes and the Iconic Pro 1 & 2 palettes. I also have their naked dupes and think the comparability is excellent! I only buy makeup for my own use and I’m by no means a professional but for the money, and because of their cruelty-free status, the MUR palettes are totally worth a go in my opinion. We certainly have nothing comparable in quality in this price range in Australia! If you try anything you will have to tell me your thoughts 🙂
