Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup: Chocolate Salted Caramel

Oh man.  I can’t even tell you how long I have been waiting for the release of this palette.  I have been drooling over the Two Faced – Semi Sweet palette for so long, but I knew that Makeup Revolution would eventually come through with a fantastic dupe.  And so they have 🙂

Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup: Chocolate Salted Caramel Palette

The shadows are the same great quality seen in the chocolate palettes which came before this one.  Easy to blend, pigmented and beautiful on the eye.  There is a nice balance of shimmers, mattes and glitter shades.  Plus, this palette has a sweet, caramel scent which is a bit yummy.

I really enjoy this palette.  The colours are predominantly mid-tones and warm.  Right up my alley!

First Row Swatches (left to right): Delicious, Tempt, Heavenly, Drizzle and Enjoy

The first row is nearly all matte in formula.  Delicious is a perfect matte brow highlight and Heavenly is an excellent transition shade in the crease.    Although it hasn’t shown up well in this photo, Enjoy, is a glitter shade with a dark brown satin base and gold micro glitters.

Second Row Swatches (left to right): Choc, Cake, Perfect, Crunch, Sweet and Fudge

The second row starts with Choc which is a matte chocolate brown with gold, micro glitters.  Then we have Cake which has the weakest pigmentation in the palette.  The formula is very unusual.  It provides a pink flash rather than actual pink colouration.  Perhaps it could be tapped like glitter over other shades (it is too think and damp to blend out with a brush), but to be honest, I never use this one.  Meanwhile Crunch and Sweet are my favourite colours in the palette – so beautiful together!

Third Row Swatches (left to right): Salted, Candy, Caramel, Spoon and Yum!

Finally we have the third row.  Lets just all take a moment to appreciate these beautiful colours.  I reach for this row constantly and just adore the way that these shades go together.

I can’t say enough good things about this palette.  I love it and can’t recommend it enough.  If you want to check it out for yourself you can pick it up from the Makeup Revolution website for about AU$16.

Have a fantastic day!
