Shock horror: I love chocolate. Not only chocolate, but makeup, ideally, eyeshadow palettes. Combining the two? My perfect combination. When I was shopping in Superdrug, I may have accidentally fell across the Makeup Revolution stand, then along to the I Heart Makeup stand. I was ooh-ing and ahh-ing at both stands, before settling for the I Heart Chocolate palette. I could easily have bought the whole collection but somehow, my inner makeup soul didn't make me do it.
The packaging reminds me of the Too Faced chocolate bar, which retails for around £40, yet this has a low cost price of just £7.99. The illusion of a chocolate bar is the clear running theme, with the end looking like melted chocolate. Even though it's plastic, I find it to be quite sturdy and secure; the clip is actually impressively good.
Thankfully, it comes with a large, full-sized mirror which would be efficient if on the go. Taking a look at the shadows, you can see there's a wide mixture of colours. Ranging from golds to browns, to khakis to berries, a whole lot of looks can be created using just this one palette. As a being a dupe for the Too Faced palette, there is also a hint of a chocolate scent. Although this is a nice added extra, and it does remind me of chocolate, I can't help but think of plastic chocolate - sorry!
A close up just to appreciate the gorgeous colours. As you can most likely observe, I'm a keen fan of the gold shades. Not only do I like them because they're pretty, but being blessed with blue eyes (yaayy), gold seems to complement them really well. The palette has a mixture of mattes and shimmers. I sometimes stick with shimmer shades on my lids with matte colours in my crease. You can create either a subtle yet natural look or a bold and daring look using just this palette.
Overall, for £7.99, in my opinion, this palette is a bargain. With all the possible looks that can be created, I find myself reaching for this palette regularly. Having all the gorgeous shades means the biggest issue I have is choosing which colours to use! I can guarantee I now wish I picked up the other palettes in the collection!
