I have never tried I Heart Makeup before, I never paid any attention to the stand in Superdrug. When I got the I Heart Makeup Chocolate Elixir eyeshadow palette, I didn’t know if the quality was going to be any good as I don’t usually like drugstore shadows. I was definitely shocked with how good the shadows actually are.
I quite like the packaging as it has a gold coating as well as looking like a chocolate bar. I love how the palette has a good sized mirror. It came with one of those basic brushes, but I chucked it away as I wouldn’t use it. There are 16 shades that are warm toned and they are all my kind of colours! The eyeshadows smell nice, it definitely doesn’t smell tacky though.
The eyeshadows are amazing quality. They are super pigmented and the colours on the eyes look exactly like the colours in the pan. I use the palette by blending a warm light brown into the crease and apply the shimmery champagne shade on the lid. I then darken out the edges with one of the burgundy shades and blend onto the outer part of the crease. With cheaper palettes I’ve used, the darker shades look patchy when blended out and fade into nothing, but these shadows keep the colour and look really nice.
I use this palette everyday as you can create a quick look as well as full on glam. When I use this palette, I feel like I’m using a higher end eyeshadow palette. I can’t recommend this palette enough. If you are on a budget and are looking for a good quality eyeshadow palette then you should defiantly get the I Heart Makeup Chocolate Elixir eyeshadow palette. It only costs £7.99 which is an absolute bargain!
If you have this palette I’d love to know if you feel the same as me about this eyeshadow palette! You should get your hands on this palette now! If the shades are not for you, they have other chocolate palettes with a different range of shades.
Thanks for reading!
