Makeup Revolution I Heart Chocolate Eye Shadow Palette Review, Swatches and Comparison

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

Have you heard of the brand Makeup Revolution? Last year, I came across this chocolate candy bar themed eye shadow palette and wondered who made it. The only thing I could figure out, was that it was from the UK. I copied the picture and emailed it to Kizzy of The Dainty Dolls House. She said, it was Makeup Revolution. She went on to say, a lot of their products are sold (I think she said, Superdrug(?), but they also have a website. She ordered this I Heart Chocolate eye shadow palette for me as one of my Christmas presents. Thank You Kizzy! Makeup Revolution does a lot of dupes (copies of other makeup brands). This palette mimics Too Faced's Original Chocolate Bar eye shadow palette. I swatched both to compare them and I am SUPER impressed! Although they're not as shimmery as the Too Faced brand (but hell they're shimmery enough for me), they are in my opinion more subtle shades. Makeup Revolution's palette has a mirror AND a double-end eyeshadow applicator! Too Faced doesn't give you anything to apply your eyeshadow! HaHaHa Also the price! This palette only costs 7.99 British Pounds, which equals to $12.19 USD. HELLO! Too Faced eye shadow palettes cost $49 USD! Makeup Revolution also offers International Delivery and payment by PayPal. HELLO! So let's compare! Look at the Makeup Revolution I Heart Chocolate swatches on the LEFT VS. Too Faced Original Chocolate Bar swatches on the RIGHT. I'm JUST SAYIN! They've also come out with a palette to mimic the new Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette. It's called Death By Chocolate <---Kizzy, I want! HaHaHa (Kizzy and I gather up and send makeup stuff back & forth across the pond LOL)

Hahaha HELLO! To be honest, I haven't heard about this brand but simply because I don't use eye shadows. You've been stumbling upon chocolate packages lately a lot! This one looks like a perfect alternative to the Too Faced brand.

Oh Kim, I want it too now!XD How lovely and nice from Kizzy! Is really a good dupe of the Too Faced one and I like the they arent that shimmery, are more classy! Does it smell like choco too? Also the other (Death by Chocolate) seems very good, I soon checked out the site lol! Hugs Kim! xo

They look like really nice shadows! And what fantastic price too! :) it's fun that you can get inspired by makeups as well as inspired by clothes and handbags! :)

Much kinder to the wallet, and only a few differences! :)

Emmylou said...

Oh wow! The shadows are super pigmented to boot. Thanks for swatching this palette, Kim. Good to know there are cheaper dupes that are good:D

Wow, such a great dupe for the too faced chocolate bar palette. The eyeshadows look really similar ;-)

Kizzy Von Doll said...

Goodness, they really aren't far off from the Two Faced one. Yes, less shimmery, but if they work, save yourself some money, haha!! Am glad you liked it and it worked well. I'm never sure on stuff like this, but the prices were too good not to give it a try!! Hahaha...I will get you the other palette as well, I was going to get it along with that one, but I wasn't sure. But, no worries, I shall get it :)) Woooo!! Super review :) xx

Ashley said...

Wow that's an amazing dupe!! I've seen this brand around blogger, but wasn't sure where to get it either! That's such a good price and I'm curious to see the death by chocotle one too!!

Shireen L. Platt said...

Noooo Kim! Why must you tempt me this way? You naughty gal! LOL!
Seriously though, I've read so many amazing reviews about MR and seems like they have amazing quality. I want to try something/anything from them for the longest time and I think I finally will next month!

Pilar said...

This is an amazing looking dupe and you can't beat the price!

Cee said...

This palette is so similar to the Too Faced version - wow! That said, for something at a significantly lower price point, the colours and pigment look great.
xox,

Darcy said...

That looks pretty! I have been trying to buy smaller palates lately, though, so that they are easier to travel with!

Wow this look like a pretty incredible dupe of the Too Faced Original Chocolate Bar palette! Kizzy is such a doll to track it down and send it to you Kim :) You ladies are too cute with your swaps.

Pamela RG said...

Kizzy is so kind and generous. She knows her make-up very well. This product looks so delicious outside and amazing inside. The colours are wonderful.

Diana Ashuayem said...

Hey Kim, they sure look similar but I prefer Too Faced a bit more (for the shimmer). Lol. Kizzy is a sweetheart! You both are fabulous!

So pretty! Must have a look around to see if I can find it. x

Lorena said...

These tones are so wearable ! It is unlikely to happen that you'll leave one unused and of course I love the packaging.

Ivana Split said...

how lovely...anything that resembles chocolate has my vote!

Champagne Star said...

Honestly, I actually like the Makeup Revolution case better than Too Faced since it looks more like a real chocolate bar! The colors are nice too, especially considering that you get a similar product for a fraction of the price of the original!
