I ♡ Makeup I Heart Chocolate palette & I ♡ Makeup Naked Chocolate palette: Review & Swatches


Hello chocolate lovers! Today’s post is about the two most coveted eye shadow palettes from the I Heart Makeup range of Makeup Revolution London namely,  I Makeup I Heart Chocolate palette and I Makeup Naked Chocolate palette. These combine the two greatest loves of ours-chocolate and makeup! There is another palette in this range but it is sadly not available in Pakistan at the moment. Read on to learn of our experiences with these delectable products. 

I Makeup Naked Chocolate Palette



Product Claims

Naked Chocolate contains 16 stunning eye shadows for perfect bare to smokey eyes, mixture of shimmer and matte shades. 3D chocolate palette with full size mirror and applicator.

What Do We Think?

This has become our favourite eye shadow palette for a multitude of reasons, which are all justified completely. It comes in a cardboard box with white chocolate printed on the front and back and purple text embossed over it. The front presents a mouth watering view of a delicious melting white chocolate bar. On sliding the bar out, the plastic feels quite sturdy so travelling with it shouldn’t be an issue considering it comes with a full sized mirror inside. The names of the individual shades have been printed on a clear plastic sheet that covers the rectangular pans, two of which are longer than the others (Smoothly and Way). The names all go brilliantly with the chocolate theme and the palette gives off a seductive cocoa scent. It comes with a two sided white sponge applicator, which is nice and firm. The quality is the best we have tried so far with amazing pigmentation.  The texture is superb as each shade glides on effortlessly and blends like a dream. Wearing them over the Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix eye primer, they still looked freshly applied after six hours on a summer’s day so I am certain their lasting power is pretty good. We adore this unique collection of mattes and shimmers.

I Makeup I Heart Chocolate Palette



Product Claims

Pick and mix for your eyes. You will want to try EVERY chocolate in the box! Mixture of mattes and shimmers.

What Do We Think?

This is rumoured to be a perfect dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. The packaging is exactly like the Naked Chocolate palette except for the colour, which represents an irresistible melting milk chocolate that looks good enough to eat! The sponge applicator is black in colour but the arrangement of the mirror and pans does not deviate from its sister palette. The quality of all the shades is not consistent but the majority of them perform really well. The pigmentation is really good except for Meet Chocolate. The names are pretty interesting and follow the romantic chocolate theme as well to enhance the chocolate-y experience. Using the Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix eye primer, they looked perfect even after six hours on a summer’s day. The lasting power actually depends on the individual performance of each shade and how oily your lids are. It offers a nice variety of matte and shimmer shades for day and night looks both.




You Need Love – Cream (matte).  It’s a bit chalky.
Piece Me Together – Dark grey-brown with gold shimmer (shimmer). It has some fall out due to its crumbly texture and a bit hard to blend.
One More Piece – Dull mid-tone brown (matte). It’s a bit chalky.
Love Torn – Deep plum with gold shimmer. It has slight fall out and is a little hard to blend.
Stolen Chocolate – Deep cool toned brown (matte). It’s a bit chalky.
Thank Friday – Dull coral-brown (matte). The texture is a slightly chalky.
More! – Pale gold (shimmer). It has great texture.
Pleasure Girl – Dark chocolate brown (matte). It performs superbly.
Meet Chocolate – Pale pink (matte). It is a little chalky.
Unforgivable – Indigo (shimmer). It has some fallout.
Love Divine – Dark red toned brown (shimmer). It performs well.
Smooth Criminal – Medium warm caramel brown (shimmer). It has amazing texture.
Chocolate Love – Pale golden brown (shimmer). It works wonderfully.
You Need More – Deep cool brown (shimmer). It has brilliant texture.
What a Way to Go – Deep plum (shimmer). It’s a bit hard to blend.
Endorphins Ready! – Cream (shimmer). It has wonderful texture. 

Pros

Mostly good pigmentation
Most have good texture
Blending is wonderful for the most part
Good lasting power
Attractive packaging
Comes with a mirror
Travel friendly
Affordable

In conclusion, we feel the Naked Chocolate palette definitely wins in terms of quality but it really depends on what your priorities are. The problematic shades in the I Heart Chocolate palette are not hopeless and can be made to work with a little effort. The fact that it is an extremely affordable dupe for Too Faced Chocolate Bar tilts the scales in its favour for those who find the Chocolate Bar too expensive. It offers a splendid variety of plums, chocolate browns, golds, grey-browns, some pretty highlight options and a gorgeous shimmery indigo. It presents a few nice matte brown crease choices too.  The Naked Chocolate palette revolves around soft browns, chocolate browns, golds, golden browns, plums and mauve hues. It has excellent mid-tone and deep matte crease shades and delicate shimmers including a copper. Both palettes are remarkable for the price tag and a must have for chocolate lovers!

  1. Amazing! 😍
    I love MUR for their offerings and thank you for giving an honest word about these :-)
    I have a thing for neutral palettes... and this makes me so happy! The range of colors in I Heart Chocolate palette is better, but those fallouts do make me question whether or not I should pick them.
    NAKED Choc palette has too many browns for me. Well, I guess you convinced a shopaholic hoarder she needs another neutral palette in her life :-D
    Bravo! :-*
    Oh and the eye makeup photograph - super stunning & subtle ^_^

  2. Such a mouth watering review! Thanks for such an honest review. I was inclined to get i heart chocolate but now i think getting naked chocolate would be a wiser choice... Nonetheless, both are beauties in their own way!

    1. Thanks Jadirah :) Well you just need to layer it, use a good eye primer and a good blending brush for the chalky ones

  6. Both the palettes are so tempting. I love all the shades from I Heart Chocolate palette but the fall outs and chalkiness does sound a bit disappointing. Love the EOTD Sadaf! :) xx
