Makeup Revolution 'I Heart Chocolate' Palette.

Makeup Revolution is my go to drugstore brand for affordable eyeshadow palettes, they have the most amazing dupes for all the high end brands (see my Naked 3 dupe Here).

I was so excited when my local Superdrug finally got the 'I Heart Chocolate' palette as it's clearly a dupe for the Too Faced 'Chocolate Bar' palette.  This is from their sister brand 'I Heart Makeup' which seems to be higher end than the original Makeup Revolution and slightly higher in price. 

Makeup Revolution 'I Heart Chocolate Palette' - £7.99 Here 

In keeping with the name, the palette is in the shape of a chocolate bar and made out of relatively sturdy plastic. A major plus with this palette is the full size mirror inside, usually Makeup Revolution palettes don't come with any mirror - making this perfect for travelling. 

Consisting of 16 shadows - 2 highlights, 5 mattes and 9 shimmer shades - this is the perfect palette to take you from day to night. 

Like the other Makeup Revolution eyeshadows I have tried the quality is amazing for the price! Their very pigmented, easily blendable and long lasting. The only slight issue I have is that some of the shadows, mainly the shimmer shades can have some fall out - to avoid this I either like to do my eye makeup first before my foundation or I spray my brushes with Urban Decay setting spray before applying the shadow.

Unfortunately I do not own the Too Faced Chocolate bar palette to do a direct comparison but from reading other reviews online I hear the shadow shades are near enough identical! 

I have been loving the shades 'thank friday', 'more!', 'you need more' and 'endorphins ready!' to create an everyday, subtle smokey eye. This is by far my favourite of the Makeup Revolution products I have tried - I've used it pretty much everyday since I bought it! 

Have you tried the I Heart Chocolate palette? Do you thinks it's a dupe for Too Faced Chocolate bar?
