Eye Shadow -Makeup Revolution -I Heart Revolution - Lemon Drizzle Chocolate eyeshadow Palette

on 11/11/2018 5:34:00 PM

The Lemon Drizzle palette contains everything for a complete eye look; matte crease and transition shades, satiny shimmers and two softer base & highlight shades; Afternoon Tea (caramel matte), Just A Bite (metallic copper), Sugar (écru matte), Scrumptious (mauve brown matte), Butter (banana yellow matte), Baked (brick orange metallic), Slice Of Cake (warm brown matte), Lemon Slice (bright warm yellow matte), Citrus (bright coral pink matte), Fluffy (sheer warm gold metallic), Tempting (muted orange matte), Delicious (deep plum pink with a metallic purple shift), Sunshine (salmon matte), Zestful (warm brown metallic), Tangy (bright yellow metallic), Zingy (metallic taupe), Sharp But Sweet (matte creme) and Nothing But Crumbs (warm gold metallic).

I dislike doing a three-shadow-or-more look when all of the shadows have the same finish to them, but sometimes when I'm feeling lazy or in a rush, I don't want to dig out more then one palette when getting ready - that's not a issue here. I also really like that most of the shades are 'everyday' neutral shades, with a couple of 'fun' shades [coral & magenta] for dressing things up. I think that this shade combination makes this a palette that can be used every day for work, casual-time, dates and evening/special occasion looks. Quality wise, the pigmentation of the shadows is very good for the price: a lot less powdery compared to the earlier Chocolate palettes. The darker shades take a bit of building up, but that's to be expected from shadows in this kind of price range. Even without a primer the shadows will wear for most of the day without creasing. The shadows smell like lemony chocolate, so if you dislike scented cosmetic products, then you may want to skip this.


This palette is a fantastic quality and amazing price, but sadly I've had to click no for re-buy - I first thought that the Lemon Drizzle palette was an original idea from the brand, but Natasha Denona is now sold in the UK, so I can now see that this is a dupe of her Sunset palette. Lately I've become more aware of how disrespectful it is to basically copy another brand's concept and colour-story - it's the same thing as you working on a work/school project for months, then someone else coming along at the last minute, copying what you've put tons of effort into and basking in the credit for it. I❤️ Revolution/Revolution has really nice eyehadow formulas and their original palettes have interesting concepts and colour stories, so it's a real shame that they are prone to mimicking other brands quite a bit, as they really don't need to.

Okay, I'm off my soap box now; I think the quality for this palette and colour-story are both excellent, so if the fact that this is mimicking another palette doesn't bother you, then Lemon Drizzle is a fantastic buy if you want a sunrise/sunset themed eyeshadow palette. The I ❤️ Revolution Chocolate palette family now has twenty three permanent palettes [some are site exclusives], so there's bound to be a few for everyone's tastes and skintone - some are dupes [Ive noticed Too Faced, ABH & Huda Beauty dupes in the line too], but quite a few are original ideas too.



Eye Shadow -Makeup Revolution -I Heart Revolution - I Heart Chocolate: Salted Caramel eyeshadow palette

on 11/10/2018 6:17:00 PM

I think that the strongest plus point for Salted Caramel is that the palette contains everything for a complete everyday-type eye look; there is a good variety of finishes in this palette; matte crease and transition shades, satiny shimmers and two softer base & highlight shades. I dislike doing a three-shadow-or-more look when all of the shadows have the same finish to them, but sometimes when I'm feeling lazy or in a rush, I don't want to dig out more then one palette when getting ready - that's not a issue here. I also really like that most of the shades are 'everyday' neutral shades, with a 'fun' shade [a blue shimmer] for dressing things up. I think that this shade combination makes this a palette that can be used every day for work, casual-time, dates and evening smoky looks, as well as having on hand to pair with more intense shades from elsewhere to make them more wearable.

Quality wise, the pigmentation of the shadows is very good for the price: a bit powdery, but the shadows are still easy to blend - the darker shades take a bit of building up, but that's to be expected from shadows in this kind of price range. Even without a primer the shadows will wear for most of the day without creasing. Oh yes - the shadows smell like Chocolate, like the ones in the Too Faced palettes. These shadows do have a bit of fallout when I blend with them. It's not much and I've found it easily removable, but as I don't this issue my other I❤️ Revolution eyeshadow palettes, I thought this was worth mentioning.

On the down side; it's better to apply the shimmery shades with a finger and I strongly suggest foiling them too, as the base shades are thinner then the mattes. Also; the shade names of the products are printed on a clear plastic shadow shield that slips and slides everywhere so I'll inevitably lose it, rather than on the actual palette. This niggle doesn't effect the actual products in any way so I don't mean to make a big deal about it, but it's something that winds me up because I like to know exactly what I'm wearing, and if I find a tutorial somewhere and want to copy it, then it'd be easier if the shade names were on the palette - the brand has updated the formula, so I don't get why they haven't updated the actual palette, to make it match up with the newer additions in the Chocolate line [the later ones skip the useless qapplicator and use the spare space to spread the pans out & print the shade names under them]...


I was a bit wary of this palette at first, but for £9 I can't knock the quality too much; it doesn't perform as well as the palette it's trying to dupe [the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette], but it does apply and wear better than some mid-end brands. I've clicked no for re-buy as I've become more aware of how upsetting and disrespectful it is to basically copy another brand's concept and colour-story - it's the same thing as you working on a work/school project for months, then someone else coming along at the last minute, copying what you've put tons of effort into and trying to claim credit for it. I❤️ Revolution/Revolution has really nice eyehadow formulas and their original palettes have interesting concepts and colour stories, so it's a real shame that they are prone to mimicking other brands quite a bit, as they really don't need to. Okay, I'm off my soap box now; the Chocolate palette family now has twenty three permanent palettes [some are site exclusives], so there's bound to be a few for everyone's tastes and skintone - some are dupes [I've noticed Too Faced, ABH & Huda Beauty], but quite a few are original ideas.

Liquid -Makeup Revolution -Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation

I have to say this is in excellent foundation. I have tried every foundation under the sun but have never found that HG. I had finished my bottle of Kat Von D Lock it foundation (which is good) and my daughter told me about this one, for the price I thought what the hell its only £9. Well I am extremely impressed! I haven't broke out, which I tend to do with new foundation, nor is it sliding down my face come 12 noon. I was thinking of going back to Estee Lauder Double Wear but I think I have just found my HG. The only negative I would say is that I am not too fond of the doe foot applicator. I use it first to dot the foundation around my skin, blend out with brush then I tap a bit to the back of my hand to use beauty blender to build.

Concealers -Makeup Revolution -Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer

This concealer really does live up to the rave reviews in my opinion.

I got mine a couple of days ago but with these dark mornings I've waited till the weekend to really test it out properly.

I don't usually wear foundation so I like my concealer to match my skintone. I got shade 10.5 which is a great match for my MAC C40/ Bobbi Brown 4.5/5 colouring. It looks quite dark in the tube, but shade 10 looked a little too light.

I do find that it takes a few days to get the best balance of eye cream/concealer/powder when switching to a new concealer. If you think this makes your undereye area look dry, please play around with it as you may hit on a balance that works for you. Ideally concealer goes on best around an hour after applying eye cream and moisturiser but that's difficult on weekdays. Using a good eye cream overnight does help give the area a good moisture boost for the morning, though.

The product is quite pigmented and a little goes a long way. Texture wise, it's creamy and substantial but not too thick. I got the supersize version which has a large doe foot applicator so it's easy to apply too much if you're not careful. It looked a little dark at first, then seemed to lighten up. I dotted it on, blended with my finger under the eye, in the inner corner and smoothed the rest over my eyelid. One coat gave a natural finish, two coats give full coverage. I found I had enough time to blend it in before it set.

I finished off with a light dusting of Bobbi Brown Pale Yellow powder, which I use with their Creamy Concealer. This helped to set and slightly brighten the concealer. End result - great coverage and a perfect skin tone match.

If you already have a concealer that you love, I'd recommend trying this if only as a back up. It's an excellent concealer for the price; I got the supersize 13g version which sells for £7. The regular size is just £4! Even better, I got mine on a 3 for 2 offer.

Early days, so I've given this a cautious 4 for now although it's more of a 4+. I can see it'll be much easier to use on winter workday mornings than my Creamy Concealer, and may yet come back and give it a 5 in time!




Foundations -Makeup Revolution -Fast Base Stick Foundation

I bought this in summer, which is makeup melt season where I live. The color match & coverage is good for me, I wear F2. This won't change in winter as I don't buy into getting a darker shade for summer when I have bronzer. It is hot+humid where I live in the southern midwest so even setting spray couldn't save it from sliding around in the heat, due to the emollient formula. Even on my dryer-normal over 35 skin. I will update with how this wears for me during colder months.
