Welcome back to Chocolate Week 🙂
(I am tragically excited by this little series – please forgive me!)
Today I am going to review the I Heart Makeup Death by Chocolate palette. And before I move onto the review, lets all just take a moment to reflect on the name of this palette. Death by chocolate? I can certainly think of worse ways to go!
I do not believe that this palette is a dupe for anything else, (if it is, please tell me in the comments!), but as it is, this is a truly beautiful offering of eyeshadows. Death by Chocolate is a much more cool toned selection of colours. While there are still some chocolatey browns, there are also some really stunning taupe colours and a couple of shades with a distinct mauve undertone.
This palette has a really nice mix of mattes, shimmers and satin shadows – but no glitter shadows. This is a definite plus for me, but that is only my personal taste.
At first glance this palette seems like more of a night time palette and you can totally rock a smokey eye from the colours here, but I actually gravitate to this palette for work and I have no trouble getting a lighter, softer look from this palette for the everyday wear.
I love the Death by Chocolate palette. These colours are really beautiful and such great quality. I find the pigmentation of these to be really impressive and for me they wear really well, without creasing, throughout a full day in the Australian heat. I don’t find they fade. I do wear these with eye primer – but I always wear eye primer regardless!
Of the three chocolate palettes I would say this would rate as my second favourite, but to be fair, all three of these palettes are excellent. It isn’t an issue of quality difference as much as it is personal preference in regards to colours. I can’t recommend these enough. If you buy nothing else from Makeup Revolution, try these chocolate palettes 🙂
Love makeup, eat chocolate and have a fantastic day!
