Makeup Revolution Death by Chocolate Palette

Okay , so I was debating what my first come back post would be , and I decided since I got soooo much makeup revolution stuff for Christmas that I would start off with the death by chocolate palette,I can’t even describe how hard it was for me to get my hands on any of the items in this brand , it didn’t come to my superdrug until 2 weeks before christmas! ( first world problems)

Lets start with the obvious , this palette is meant to resemble the Too Faced chocolate bar palettes, but don’t be fooled , this particular palette is not a dupe for any of the Too Faced ones , They do have a salted caramel which is meant to resemble the Semi Sweet chocolate bar palette and a normal chocolate bar palette to resemble the original one.

When I look at the colours in this palette its almost like the original chocolate bar palette just a little bit darker, the colours in this palette are mostly cool toned , not something I would of picked up a few months ago , but I’m coming out of my comfort zone these days and I thought about experimenting , so if cool tones aren’t for you then you won’t like this palette!

The pigmentation! WOW! just WOW , I’ve never used any other drugstore brand that had pigmentation like this , the colours are so buttery and so easy to work with that my eye makeup looks like a dream! I have 2 other palettes from Makeup Revolution the Ultra flawless palette and the Run Boy Run palette and the pigmentations in the both of those are out of this world too!

The Scent , you either love it or hate it , some people online seem to think there is a chemical smell off of it? I honestly don’t get that I just get a really artificial chocolate smell , which doesn’t put me off it at all , in fact I don’t really care much for the smell

 

overall I’m so so pleased and happy with this product , its amazing and only cost     12 which is an absolute bargain , there’s not one negative thing I have to say about it , I was honestly blown away! I can’t wait to purchase more of their chocolate bar palettes in the future

hope you all enjoyed my little come back post , have you tried this product? let me know if you liked it in the comments below!

Update // Getting back into the Swing of Things

Hello Everyone!
It’s me , the person who couldn’t update her blog for a VERY VERY long time! I suppose life got in the way , and I’m not going to lie , I’ve been incredibly lazy too , so much has gone on these past few months , that I felt I needed to take a breather and collect my thoughts and go from there.

I suppose the first thing I want to address , is the direction I want to take my blog , I’ve never had a schedule , a set time when I would post so I want to try my hardest now to set one , I’m starting a new job next week so I’ll know roughly when I’ll be able to post and get new content up then. I feel extremely embarrassed that I haven’t posted in so long.I also purchased a lot of Makeup Revolution items and I’m thinking on doing a haul or review on some of them , let me know down below if you would like to see that.

Secondly , I FINALLY go out of the course I hated. If you didn’t already know I was doing applied computing in college and absolutely hated it! It wasn’t for me and I just didn’t see myself doing it. That brings me on to my next topic! Next Year I will be training to become A MAKEUP ARTIST! It’s always been my dream to become a makeup artist but I was always told I needed to get a “proper” degree first , after a loooooong sit down with my parents , they knew I wasn’t happy with what I was doing and instead of making me go through something I hated , they understood and let me drop out to do something I loved.

So right now I’ll be working full time , trying to save up for a car and also working towards getting a qualification in becoming a makeup artist , I have a lot more time now too to write my blog without worrying about exams and papers , so hopefully I’ll be straight back at it!

 

thanks so much for reading guys you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram to see what I got up to during my extremely long break
