I guess many of you have already heard that the Makeup Revolution brand brings lots of cheaper alternatives to the famous Chocolate Bars by Too Faced. But nowadays the MakeUp Revolution seems to be not only copying but also being famous for their palettes because of the variety of colors they offer.
So today I’d like to make a review of the Chocolate and Peaches eyeshadow palette which is a cheaper alternative to the so hyped Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette by the Too Faced cosmetic brand.
The palette retails in a branded cardboard box with a chocolate bar print on it. On the back of it you’ll find the printed eyeshadow colors which it houses inside. It’s really convenient while purchasing.
The box gives all the necessary information about the product you might be interested in.
The palette itself is made of a sturdy plastic of peach color. On the top lid there’s an imitation of melting chocolate. I must say that it looks impressive, especially in this gentle color.
The top lid closed tightly and easily opens for 180 degrees. I have never had a feeling that the palette is flimsy as it’s really of good quality.
Inside you’ll find a big and convenient mirror. The two-sided sponge is here to apply the shimmer eyeshadows from the palette. But I find the fingertip application more convenient, but still I sometimes use the sponge as it helps me to create a foiled effect on my lids.
Here’s also a plastic transparent sheet with the names of the shades.
All in all there are 6 matte shades, 8 pearlized and 2 shimmer shades.
The mattes are well packed with the pigment and are almost free of dusting. The colors are easy to layer as well as blend out as they don’t leave stains of pigment while blending.
The pearl shades are mega pigmented. They offer intense shades and creamy textures, even though there are no oils in their ingredients. These shades are super easy to work with using either brushes or fingertips when I’m in a hurry. They don’t fall out during application and are nice for building up.
The shimmer shades are also very well pigmented, almost the same as the pearl shades. The shimmer from the formula is easy to transfer onto the eyelids and I especially appreciate the absence of fall out here. The blending and layering is just fine.
It turned out that there are no failure shades for me from this palette. Some shades are more pigmented while some are less but they are all so pleasant to work with and get scrumptious makeups in the end.
Swatches of the shades without a primer:
They hold up the entire day, especially if applied over a primer. You can also wear these shades without a primer but if you have oily lids, then it’s better still use it as you eliminate the risk then to end up with your eye makeup creased.
The fragrance of the product reminds me of something sweet though not chocolate. It isn’t potent or irritative.
The color selection makes me joyful, as aside basic light and blending shades, there are also interesting dark colored satin shades which will be great for any daytime makeup.
What makeup can you come up with using this palette? You know, only your fantasy is your limit but still I want to give you some examples from myself.
I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether this palette looks like the original Too Faced Sweet Peach or it doesn't but I do definitely can call this Chocolate and Peaches palette a good dupe for it. If you can’t decide which palette to choose from the wide variety of the MUR palettes, then I can thoroughly recommend choosing this one.
