The last time my mum was in Wales, I asked her to pick me up the I Heart Makeup, I Heart Chocolate palette, one because I don't have any neutral palettes obviously...and two because it was meant to be a dupe for the Two Faced Chocolate Palette. However priced at only £8 it seemed like a good option to give it a whirl.
First things first I forgot to photograph the front but it's made to look like a chocolate bar, personally I don't like it, it makes it look cheap but I guess we should never judge a book by its cover. Inside the palette are 16 eyeshadows, 6 matte shades and 10 shimmer/satin shades. Each shade is highly pigmented with the exception of the pink shade and all shades are easy to blend and apply. I wouldn't say they are the creamiest of shadows but they are good quality and for under £10 you are really getting a great quality palette.
For the first time, I will admit I prefer the shimmery/ satin shades in this palette because there isn't one I don't like. They are so lovely to work with and look amazing on the eyes. The matte shades are really nice as well but it's the shimmery/satin shades that make it a winner for me. This is an all round neutral palette with the ability to create a smokey nighttime look as well as a neutral daytime look, it really does have it all and would make a great travel companion as so many looks can be achieved Staying time of the shadows without a primer is pretty good unless you have extremely oily lids. I would say without a primer you would get 6-7 hours wear. After that the colours just look a little faded.
Overall a really nice palette and in my opinion the best on the drugstore market at the moment. I think for the money you really cannot go wrong. This would also make a great palette for beginners as you have the shade selection, the amazing quality and a friendly price tag. Is it a dupe for the Two Faced Chocolate palette? I couldn't tell you but from what I have seen online the shades are pretty close and for a fraction of the cost of the two-faced palette who can resist.
I Heart Makeup can be bought from The Makeup Revolution site or in Superdrug. Plus good news they ship worldwide.
