The New Chocolate Bar Palette In Town - Move Over Too Faced

Do you remember how everyone went beauty crazy over the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette? At £39 I wasn't too willing to jump at buying it (especially if you've seen the amount of eyeshadow palettes I own!) Move over Too Faced, Makeup Revolution have brought out their own version of your palette and the competition is high! And priced at £7.99, why wouldn't you buy it lets be honest?!

This is the 'I Heart Chocolate' palette, which is from the I Heart Makeup collection by Makeup Revolution. It contains 16 eyeshadows, which range from mattes, shimmers to glitter shadows that are all in a warm tone. The packaging looks like a melted chocolate bar (be prepared for it to make you hungry!) and inside it has a lovely large sized mirror which is great for helping to create the perfect smokey eye, or natural look that you can achieve with this palette. It does come with a dual-ended brush, however, it's one of those sponge brushes that aren't much use when you are actually trying to create a blended look.

My thoughts on this palette are that it is blimmin' amazing! The pigment of these shadows is incredible, as well as the staying power (I haven't used a primer underneath them yet, so I'm sure that would make the longevity 10x better). I would say the eyeshadows have a more powdery feel to them, rather than buttery, but this doesn't take away from the quality of the shadows. And the variation of colours in the palette allows you to create such a wide variety of looks on your eyes, so much so that this palette would become one of your staples in no time!

Overall, I'm really happy with this palette and I'm definitely interested in purchasing the other two that they currently have (have you seen the white chocolate one?!) For what it means to you, my recommendation would be that everyone should have one of the chocolate palettes in their collection.

Have you tried anything from Makeup Revolution? What are your thoughts on this palette?



Zoeva Rose Gold Brushes Review

Every girl who is obsessed with makeup loves some pretty makeup brushes, but the last thing we want to do is sacrifice great quality for beauty. I'd seen some reviews of the Zoeva brushes, and had always thought about trying them. They are a bit more expensive than other makeup brushes so I wasn't willing to fork out the money any time soon, but then Christmas came along and so did the wish list! The minute I set my eyes on these gorgeous rose gold brushes I was in love, and knew I wanted them.

The brushes have a black handle, with rose gold writing on the handle. The metal that helps to hold the bristles in the brush is also rose gold, which is so beautiful and really gives a feminine, luxurious feel to them. The bristles themselves are synthetic, which makes them perfect to use with liquid as they won't soak up all of the product, but they are also perfect to use with powder as well!

The 102 Silk Finish brush I love to use for foundation, it gives a really flawless finish, and if you press the foundation into the skin with it, you are poreless too! The bristles on the 106 Powder brush are so soft, that you get a luxurious feel as you apply your powder, who doesn't want that?! The 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek brush is my favourite for blush, I feel like it helps blend out the blush as you apply it - super helpful!

I won't go through every brush, but needless to say, I love them all so much and would highly recommend them. This rose gold set costs £55, and they ship to so many countries at a reasonable price. If you aren't interested in rose gold, they do so many other brushes that you will be in heaven!

What do you think of these brushes? Have you tried them?
