Blogmas Day 3: Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Death by Chocolate Palette

Hello and Happy Blogmas Day 3! On Blogmas Day 1, I handed over to you to leave me some suggestions as to what you would like to see over Blogmas. The lovely Kimmy from Beauty Isles commented how she would like to see some eye make up looks so I decided to not only showcase one of my most favourite palettes but also show you how I use it. Now, if you haven’t heard of Makeup Revolution yet then I’m not quite sure where you have been. They have exploded out of nowhere, offering great value items at a ridiculously purse friendly price point and there isn’t a single item that I have bought that I haven’t loved. The I Heart Makeup Chocolate Palettes come in two colour selections, the I Heart Chocolate and Death By Chocolate. I have the delicious I Heart Makeup Death by Chocolate Palette, filled with 16 shades that compliment each other beautifully.

First of all, I must mention how similar the two I Heart Makeup Chocolate Palettes are to the Two Faced Chocolate Bar palette. Whilst the Too Faced palette comes in at Β£45, the I Heart Makeup palettes are priced at just Β£7.99 each. I think I would much rather have both versions of the I Heart Makeup than the Too Faced palette. Yes, I just said that. Over the last few weeks that I have been using the palette, I have found that with a good eye primer the shadows last all day without creasing. The pigments in the shadows are superb, and they transfer to the lid in the colour that they were intended to be. There is nothing worse than swatching a shadow that looks so meak and mild on your hand or finger when it looks super vibrant in the pan. Each shade is named and the palette contains two highlighter shades, a total of six matte shades and the rest are shimmery hues of chocolatey, bronzed nude shades.

A makeup technique that I use a lot is what I like to call the Halo, or Spotlight technique. Rather than focusing the colours on the outer corner to create a smoked out eye, I like to take the darker colours from the outer corner into the inner corner in a semi circle motion, then build up with a further darker colour in the corners. I have used One More Bar to create the halo with Consume Me to smoke it out in the corners. For the pop of colour in the centre of the lid, Fool’s Gold is a perfect colour to compliment. I finished off with a slick of mascara and a black winged liner. This technique is particularly good for making eyes appear larger and if you use colours that work well with your eye colour, your eyes will really stand out.

My lip colour is the Revlon Colorburst in Flirtatious; s colour that is just right for the Festive Season.

    This pallet looks gorgeous, how uncanny that we both decided to feature Makeup Revolution on our day 3 post πŸ™‚ can’t wait to see the rest of your posts for blogmas! πŸ™‚ xx

    • Isn’t that funny! Great minds πŸ™‚ xx

  • I have this palette and I love it, it has some gorgeous shades and the quality is really good. Love your makeup look! I need to try the halo effect, as I normally stick to ‘the inner corner lighter, outer corner darker’ technique. x

    • I read your blog post on it πŸ™‚ It’s a great palette. The Halo is so easy to do and so effective xx

  • You look beautiful! That palette seems so versatile and has so many amazing shades too! ^__^ I haven’t tried this makeup technique, I’m so boring with my eye looks! I’ll definitely give it a go though, so thanks for the inspiration! πŸ™‚

    I keep hearing such good things about Makeup Revolution. I must buy something and test them out for myself! This palette looks great and I really love the look you’ve created with it. x

    • Thanks Kate. You really need Makeup Rev in your life πŸ™‚ xx

  • Yay! This made me happy (and of course now I want these palettes). Lately, I find myself doing more of the Halo effect as well (even though that’s not what I was calling it). Fools Gold was an excellency choice for the lid. Paired with Flirtatious on the lips – perfection. So trying to replicate this for an office-type holiday party. πŸ™‚

    • What were you calling it? I think its such a flattering effect πŸ™‚ xx

      • I wasn’t calling it anything, lol. You’re referred to it correctly – it was I who didn’t have the right vocabulary. πŸ™‚ Again, thank you for honouring me this way – I feel so special! xo

    Very Pretty! I’ve got the Too Faced Palette and love it.. But would have given this a go first.

    • The Too Faced is lovely but I for the price, Make up Rev wins!!xx

  • This looks like a fantastic pallet. I love a mix of matt and shimmer shades. The pigment looks good too. I prefer brown tones to darker deep colours like purple or blue. I really want to buy the day pallet from Primark and see what that is like, but I read a few reviews and apparently it doesn’t have much pigment or last very long.


    • I don’t think that personally I would buy make up from Primark. Its a bit cheap and cheerful for my liking!x
