So recently, I treated myself to the I heart makeup Naked Chocolate pallet – as I was desperately in need of a makeup pallet that has bown moavey and brown tones in – as my collection was verging on the peachy/pinky side of things. Honestly, this pallet does not disappoint. All the colours are absolutely stunning, and although in the pan they look similar – they’re all so beautiful in their own way.
Secondly, the consistency and pigmentation is amazing. Every single shadow is so buttery and creamy – so it goes on and blends out like a dream. However, i do find that its easier to use my finger with a lot of these shimmer shades – as I struggle to get enough pigmentation with a flat brush. Then again, the pallet is only .£8.99 so I don’t mind too much, as you cant expect it to act the same way as a £40 eye shadow pallet.
That aside, the colours look so stunning on the eyes and is really easy to build up to get your desired intensity.
Overall, if you’re looking for a neutrals pallet with a pop of pink and gold, then id highly recommend this pallet as in my opinion, its one of the best drugstore pallets due to its colour selection and quality. Also, if you guys would like me to create some looks using this pallet then let me know, and ill see what I can do! x
So a few weeks ago for my 20th birthday, I received the Soph X Revolution pallet. I swear its honestly the most incredible highlighter pallet I’ve ever seen. I love how universal the pallet is as Sophie has quite clearly tried to make darker shades for those of us with darker skin tones, but also included colours that could work for paler skin tones too.
However, the lighter shades on the left are a tad too light for me, so I often find myself mixing the top 2 right colours with the paler shades, to make it work for my skin tone and they are stunning!
Here are some swatches, so you can see what I mean.
Also, i’m not sure i’ll use the pink and purple shade as highlighters as those colours tend to intimidate me a little, as it can be so easy for it to look out of place and ruin a makeup look ( in my opinion.) However, if I took my time and applied them carefully they could easily be beautiful eye shadows along with the darker two on the bottom right.
In addition to this, I also find the consistency to be incredible. Although they’re a powder they are so buttery and creamy, and blend out like a dream. Also, they’re not too glittery which I do appreciate, as i’m not the biggest fan of chunky highlighters.
In conclusion. this is a wonderful highlighter and Id recommend it to anyone. Sophie really has done a lovely job with this, and its clear how much time and effort she has put into it – making it easily my favourite highlighter pallet.
