I'm talking to you today about another eye shadow palette from Makeup Revolution. This time the palette is from the new line of products called I ♡ Makeup. I'm getting really obsessed with eye make up from this brand as they're very affordable but great quality. And the new palette is not exception. In fact 'Death by Chocolate' have, in my opinion, the best quality eye shadows I've tried from Makeup Revolution and much better than many other drugstore offerings I've used.
And the packaging?... How cute is this! It does look like chocolate bar, my 3 year old son wanted to have a piece of THIS chocolate when he saw it :) And if you're wondering if it smells like chocolate I'm happy to tell you that when you open the sturdy case and smell the eye shadows you can definitely feel the scent of cocoa, so yes, it does smell like chocolate :)
Obviously you're probably aware that 'Death by Chocolate' eye shadow palette is very much "inspired" by Too Faced 'Chocolate Bar' palette and seeing swatches on different websites I can say that a few eye shadows from I ♡ Makeup palette look very similar to Too Faced ones.
Ever since I saw reviews of the 'Chocolate Bar' I put it on my wish list as it looks just beautiful but at £45 is way out of my budget. But now I don't need it anymore as I have 'Chocolate by Death' (only £7.99) and even though it's not an exact dupe for the Too Faced offering I'm more than happy with it.
The palette comes with a sturdy plastic packaging with a large mirror inside and a sponge applicator ( anyone use them nowadays?). It has 16 eye shadows, some shimmers and some mattes. All of them are buttery soft and super pigmented, I was absolutely amazed when I swatched them for the first time. Even the matte shades are amazing quality, slightly less pigmented and have very minimal fallout but still incredibly soft. They all apply and blend beautifully and last well on my eye lids, even without the primer. All the eye shadows are named which is super cute and makes the palette even more special.
As the palette is all about chocolate the shades of eye shadows are all kind of nudes, bronzy and golden. They're all gorgeous! There are 6 mattes: White Light, Break Me Up, All is Lost, Lick Me, One More Bar, Devour Me. The rest are shimmery with beautiful satin finish.
So now the most exciting part: the swatches! I decided to show you the shades at two different angles to give you an idea how the shadows look in different lighting.

I'm absolutely in love with all the shades and 'Death by Chocolate' has become my favourite eye shadow palette for everyday or nights out makeup looks. The quality is amazing!
I ♡ Makeup has another chocolate inspired palette called 'I heart Chocolate' and I'm very tempted to get it as well:) I told you, I'm getting obsessed with palettes:)
Have you tried any of the new palettes from I ♡ Makeup?
