Makeup Revolution: I Heart Makeup – Chocolate Pink Fizz palette

I love the chocolate bar palettes from Makeup Revolution so it is no surprise that when they released two new additions to the series at the end of 2015 I was quick to add them to my collection.

Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup: Chocolate Pink Fizz

When I looked at the Chocolate Pink Fizz online I did wonder whether the palette was a bit same-same in its colour selection.  I questioned whether I would get many different looks out of this palette as a result.  I will admit to you that I actually purchased this palette because I can be a bit compulsive.  I own the other chocolate palettes in this collection and I just thought hey – why not just finish off the set (that is appropriate logic right??).

But, it turns out I really enjoy this palette.  I’m surprised how much I like these tones and there isn’t as much pink here as I initially thought.  I actually find this is a nice palette for work.  The colours are bright, light and not overly dramatic.  I do wish that there were a couple more matte shades though.  There are only three mattes in the palette: one crease shade, a  brow highlight and then a dark chocolate for darkening up the outer crease.  It is functional, but I’d like more options.

First Row Swatches (left to right): Champers, Drink, Flute, Sparkling and Toast

The first row contains soft, light pinks.  These are feminine and pretty.  Champers is a great matte brow highlight and I enjoy Drink as a transition shade in the crease.  Flute, Sparkling and Toast are quite similar shimmers but they are extremely pretty.  I enjoy the way all these shades work together on the eye.

Second row swatches (left to right): Bubbles, Girl, Party, Elegant, Celebrate and Truffle

The second row are all shimmer shades.  Bubbles is a particularly sparkly shade and would benefit from fixing spray during application to avoid glitter fall-out.

Third row swatches (left to right): Rosy, Cork, Pop (matte), France and Pink Fizz

The third row includes the weakest shade of the whole palette.  Rosy is a very odd formula. It is thick and almost damp to the touch and is extremely difficult to apply with a brush.  You may be able to tap it onto the eyelid as a centre highlight but is lacks pigmentation.  I never reach for this shade.  (This shade is also in the Chocolate Salted Caramel palette and I never use it there either!)  Pink Fizz is also quite creamy in texture.  Again, it is easier to apply with the finger onto the lid rather than with a brush, but it certainly performs much better than Rosy.  Meanwhile I LOVE France – such a pretty dark blue.  I use it on the lower lash line all the time.

Chocolate Pink Fizz is a very pretty palette.  It is a refreshing move away from the brown tones of the other chocolate palettes from Makeup Revolution and I have surprised myself with how often I reach for this.

If you would like to try it for yourself it retails for about AU$16 from the Makeup Revolution website.

Have a wonderful day!

P.S.  This does have a sweet scent but I can’t put my finger on what it smells like specifically.
