It has been a while since my last video! But I am back with a new review of a drugstore palette! It´s a very pretty one, with 16 shimmer and matte eyeshadows. It´s called Naked Chocolate and belongs to I HEART MAKEUP collection, a line created by MakeupRevolution.
The packaging is made up like a bar of white chocolate melting and inside you have a handy big mirror to apply your makeup. From my experience I can say that all the eyeshadows in this palette have a decent quality taking into account the money you pay for them. They blend all well and they last all day in your eyes with a decent primer. In my opinion the shimmer shades are just a little bit more pigmented and more intense than the matte ones.
In the picture above you can see swatches from the first row of shades that come in the palette. The shades Smoothly and Choc-fest are matte and not soo exciting as the others!
In the picture above you can see swatches from the second row of shades. Here, only Sweet Shop is really matte. The others contain shine.
In the picture above you can see swatches of the last row of shades. Here, only Double Dipand Way are really shimmer shades, the other three are matte, and in my opinion the best ones in the palette! I really like the Way colour because it really opens my eyes and it can be used as a highlighter! Milkyis my favourite matte eyeshadow !
As you can see from the picture above, the colour range in this palette is mostly neutral, with a mix of browns, golds, rose, taupes, etc.
Smoothly works as matte base but it isn´t as pigmented as other shades, and for very white skin (as me for instance) it really doesn´t work that well. Divine and Mocha Love are really pretty rose gold shimmer shades with some twist of brown. Dipped is a less intense brown shimmer, but lovely as well, and Choc-Fest is a strong burgundy brown matte, not as pigmented as the other shades.
Adorable is a creamy shimmer shade, perfect to work as a base. Buttonsis a cold brown shimmer, perfect to use in the eye crease. Frosted Choc is morea kind of warm shimmer golden brown, more suitable for a night makeup look. Delight is a subtil shimmer shade, a combination of grey, brown and purple. Sweet Shopis an intense matte warm brown, very nicely pigmented. Sugar is the most intense of the second row, it´s a kind of dark brown-purple shade, with some twist of sheen.
Double Dip is an intense bright gold shimmer, perfect for intense party makeup looks, for instance. Tob-le-rone is a kind of a light brown taupe matte, suitable for the eye crease . Wonka is an intense matte dark brown nicely pigmented! Milky is a matte pink taupe, similar to Tob-le-rone but smoothly more pigmented. In the end there is Way, a bright yellow gold shimmer, perfect to bright the inner corner of your eye, or to use as a highlight in your face as well, as mentioned before!
For me this palette wins in design packaging and price!It´s really cheap for the amount of eyeshadows you get and for the quality and pigmentation of the shades!It´s also perfect to offer your best friend or sister, for example, as a present! Finally, it also contains a funny smell, hard to describe, a sort of an artificial sweet milky chocolate aroma…
