Hello beautiful ladies,
I recently purchased two Makeup Revolution Eye Shadow Palettes as a part of the IMBB sponsored-scheme. I really love Makeup Revolution’s palette and they are quite affordable also. Today’s review is going to be on Makeup Revolution London I Heart Makeup Palette in the variant Chocolate Vice. Let’s get into the details.
My Experience with Makeup Revolution London I Heart Makeup Chocolate Vice Palette:
Packaging: I always love cute packaging and this palette comes in a normal clear front cardboard box with all details. Eye shadows comes in a beautiful black colored flat plastic container and it looks like a melted chocolate bar. This is so pretty, I just love the outer packaging. Inside the palette there is big size mirror and a dual ended sponge applicator. There is also a transparent name sheet which has the name of all shades. It is little weighty but totally a travel friendly palette. Overall it looks so glam and pretty.
Shades: It’s Chocolate Vice palette so most of the shades are kind of all so natural. One palette contains 16 shades among them 8 shimmery shades and 8 matte shades. I totally love the shade combination. Also all the shades are really nicely pigmented and few shades are super pigmented as well. They just need one to two swipes for the true color. Her I am discussing about each shade. I am staring with the first row and first shade.
Vice: It’s a gorgeous whitish gold highlighting shade with golden shimmers. It looks so bright on eyes.
Sway: It looks like a creamy beige shade and it’s a perfect matte shade. It also works nice as a base shade or highlights brow bones, inner corner. It doesn’t have any shimmer.
Satisfy: It is also shimmery beige shade which works great as highlighter. It contains whitish beige shimmers in it.
Require: This is a gorgeous rose gold shade with warm golden shimmers. It has a nice peachy pink undertone. Again it’s a nice highlighter shade and also works amazing as a ‘3D shade’.
Convert: It’s a very natural light brown shade with warm undertone which acts well as a base shade or to lightly define crease. This shade is perfect matte shade and doesn’t contain shimmer.
Treat: This is a dark brown shade and it is also a perfect matte shade that doesn’t have any shimmer in it. It’s a pretty daily wear shade for natural brown smoky eye.
Habit: It’s a true golden shade with warm undertones and it has fine golden shimmer. Overall it looks so gorgeous and bright on eyes.
Persuade: It is one of my favorite shades in this palette. It is the shiniest shimmery copper shade with peach undertone. It looks perfect for parties and great for wedding makeup. It has highly noticeable shimmers in it.
Need: It’s a cool toned light brown shade that looks so natural on eyes. It is also a perfect matte shade and doesn’t contain any shimmer.
Crave: This is also another favorite of mine; it is a beautiful shiny dark metallic copper brown shade with a hint of plum. It has lots of shimmers and it is just perfect shade for a gorgeous eye look.
Lust: It is the darkest shade in this palette. It’s a nice dark grey-black shade with grey shimmers in it. It looks perfect for a smoky eye look.
Reason: This is a very pretty peach shade with fine golden shimmer. It also acts as a nice highlighter shade.
Must: I just love this silky matte natural light pink shade. It has a warm undertone and it looks extremely nice on eyes.
Maleficence: This is again a gorgeous and wearable shade. It’s a rusty brown shade with warm undertones and it defines crease perfectly and warms up my eyes. I use this shade a lot to blend my lid-color and it is a perfect matte shade.
Fancy: It’s again a lovely dusky rosy pink shade which looks so natural. It has a silky matte texture and it doesn’t contain any noticeable shimmer.
Appeal: This shade is a perfect matte milky white shade and it mostly used as a highlighter shade.
Texture & quality: This palette has both shimmery and matte shades and all the shades have super smooth silky texture that glides easily on eyes. They blend effortlessly and they never look patchy. They feel light and extremely smooth in texture. Matte shades are super silky and velvety and blends easily without ever feeling chalky. The shimmery shades are also of same nature and the shimmer provides that super shinny finish on eyes. But the problem is, they fall a lot during application. There is so much fallout and shimmers are quite difficult to wipe off. So I always do my eye makeup first to avoid this problem. Matte shades have less fallout issue. Otherwise they never settle in fine lines or crease. Also the shades never irritated my eyes.
Staying Power: I have tried almost all shades on my eyes and all of them stay nice on my eyes. Matte shades stay better and they never move from place. They never smudge that much and also never transfer. Shimmery shades look little messy at the end of the day so they need an eye primer. But overall the shades stay very long, almost 7-8 hrs on eyes. Matte shades also stay whole day nicely. Matte shades are easy to remove but shimmery shades needs effort to remove the shimmer properly.
Overall I am so happy with this palette. All the shades are so gorgeous and I can create various eye look with this one palette. I can create a natural look and as well as a dark bold eye look. Considering the price this palette is really a great option to go with.
