I know that the Death By Chocolate palette has been one of the best selling palettes for I Heart Makeup, part of the Makeup Revolution family, so I’m expecting nothing less from the two new Chocolate palettes, Chocolate Salted Caramel and Chocolate Pink Fizz (in separate post).
So…I can’t actually remember whether the original palette was scented, but this palette certainly is! It’s not overwhelming – just a little waft of sugar caramel when you open it. There are 16 shades in the palette in a mix of matte and shimmer textures.
You can see the names of each shade in this picture (I love Spoon!).
The shade that I love the most from this palette is the matte black, Tempt. I’ve tried it as a crease shade and it’s beautifully blendable for a quick smoky look.
This is the top row and part of the middle row from bottom to top: Delicious, Tempt, Heavenly, Drizzle, Enjoy, Choc, Cake and Perfect. I found Cake a bit tricky to blend.. it’s a very, very soft texture; about as soft as I think a powder can go before it’s a creme, so best used as a wash of iridescence over other shades.
The next in order are: Crunch, Sweet, Fudge, Salted, Candy, Caramel, Spoon and Yum!
The lower shades are the more shimmery (predominantly) and I’ve done a quick in-sun shot (while we have some sunshine) so you can see the sheen. I love the line up in this palette – especially the blue; just add a matte black crease, some khol and mascara and you have a gorgeous blue smoky. If you’re new to these palettes, they’re a lot of fun, but the make up inside is serious. As a budget offering, I think you’re getting exceptional value for money in both terms of packaging and formula.
