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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
