I know , it’s been a long time since I wrote a post on my blog. Life has been so incredibly busy and difficult as well. Sometimes life just gets in the way. But I’m glad to be blogging again! Today’s review will be about the I Heart Makeup Chocolate and Peaches Palette…
If you’d like to learn more about this cute palette then please click the link below!
The Chocolate and Peaches Palette comes yet again in one of those chocolate bar type palettes, which I actually really love. It just looks cute. This one has a peachy color.
On the back of the box you can see which shades you can expect in the palette, which I think is handy in case there are no testers in your store.
The actual palette looks like a peach chocolate bar. Very sweet!
As I have mentioned before in reviews on these Chocolate Bar palettes: the packaging is very heavy and sturdy. The big mirror, the size of the lid, keeps itself up in any position. The palette comes with a plastic sheet, with the names of the shadows. Inside you will also find a dual ended sponge tip applicator.
The palette comes with a very nice variety of mattes and shimmers. The two highlight shades in the bigger pans are both mattes as well as the four others shades on the bottom row of the palette. In Keen you can find a few tiny specks of shimmer. The gorgeous shade Peach is an almost matte shade, with some gold shimmers to them. Absolutely stunning and gorgeous!
This palette is supposed to be a dupe for the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. I don’t own that palette, so I don’t know exactly how similar the shades are, but I don’t think it is an exact dupe. The Too Faced palette doesn’t have to two bigger pans, which this one does. So you get less eyeshadows in this palette. The Too Faced one, holds two more. This palette is missing at least one of the purple shades from the Too Faced palettes and maybe one of the mid tone brown shimmers. Nonetheless I think you can create a very similar look with this palette. and I’ve loved it ever since I got it about a month ago.
SWATCHES TOP ROW:
I absolutely love these shades. Especially the second shade from the left which looks a bit dull in the pan, has a gorgeous peachy shift to it. The third shade is a beautiful peachy pink with a golden sheen to it. I also love the green-ish shade. It comes across like a taupe-green, which I think is quite unique.
SWATCHES SECOND ROW:
The middle/second row of this palette is also very very beautiful. What I love about these shades so much, is that they are all different, event hough they can look a bit similar in the pans. I love the fact that the burgundy-brown (the fifth shade from the left) actually shows up like that instead of like a muddy grey, which sometimes happens with shades like these.
SWATCHES BOTTOM ROW:
I don’t know if you’re gonna be able to see the swatch on the most right, which is the matte highlighter shade, because it is so close to my skintone. I absolutely love the matte dusky pink on the far left. Such a beautiful shade. These mattes are just stunning. They blend so nicely on the eye and look great. This palette is incredibly versatile.
I really love the variety this palette offers you. You can make a very warm peachy look, een warm neutral look, but also a slightly more cool toned look, if you would use the dusky pink. You can also create an all matte look with this palette. Especially the bottom row allows you yo do so. I haven’t experienced any fallout with this palette. If you may find that some shimmers apply to the lid a bit more difficult with a brush, then I would recommend using your finger. That way you get the best color payoff.
The formula of the shimmers is completely different from the real Too Faced Palettes. I own the original Chocolate Bar palette. Those shades are a dryer texture and more finely milled. These I Heart Makeup eyeshadows, especially the shimmers, feel a bit more creamy and wet. The matte shades come close in texture and blendibility.
I absolutely love this palette. It is one of my favorites in my collection. I would recommend it.
In stores you can find it at Kruidvat (online as well) and some Trekpleister stores (online in any case).
