Hope you all had a great weekend. My weekend was a terrible one. I was so sick on Saturday but because i have a job that is so demanding and even if 1 person doesnt go to work, it effects the whole dynamic i went in like a good little girl, but 5 hours into my shift i was feeling terrible i went home and straight into bed thinking i could possibly sleep it off. Well i didnt get much sleep that night so come 6am i went straight to the hospital
Turns out i have a virus that is currently going around, there were 4 other people in the emergency room with the same symptoms as myself. 5 drips later and tons of medication. I have now been booked off sick and resting at home. So how was your weekend? Hopefully much better than mine? hehe
Today I’m sharing my love for a brand not sold in SA that i just cant get enough of, I Heart Makeup, they are part of the Makeup Revolution family. They have such affordable yet amazing quality products, some of them being the chocolate bar eye shadow palettes. The mini’s below (they look exactly like the eyeshadow palettes) are a bronzer and highlighter.
Excuse the palettes itself as i got swatch happy when they arrived and forgot to take pictures first lol.
💗 BRONZE AND GLOW 💗
ABOUT A duo powder to bronze and highlight encased in a mini chocolate bar complete with a mirror. Give yourself a bronzed glow all year round and finish with the complimenting highlighter. Sculpt and highlight your features with this Bronze and Glow palette
MY REVIEW Lets talk packaging first. This mini palette is identical to the I ♡ Chocolate – Golden Bar eyeshadow palette. Its sturdy and the perfect size for travelling. The matte bronze shade (left) is the perfect cool toned shade for contouring. It can be used lightly or its buildable for a stronger contour look. Its a very natural shade and has the perfect amount of pigmentation. When swatching it, there is a bit of fallout from the product, not so much with the Highlighter (right) The highlighter is a beautiful champagne colour that not only can be worn as a highlighter but i also used it as an eyeshadow. Its easy to blend and its also buildable to create a subtle glow or to create more a stand out glow. This palette also smells like chocolate hmmm yummy
💗 LIGHT AND GLOW 💗
ABOUT A duo powder to give you the perfect glow encased in a cute pink case and a mirror. Instantly lift and highlight any complexion by sweeping the powder across your cheekbones, brows and any other areas you want to glow. Either use them individually or together.
MY REVIEW Lets talk packaging first. This mini palette is a combination between the I ♡ Chocolate – Naked Chocolate and Pink Fizz eyeshadow palette. This palette contains 2 highlights, a light champagne gold and a light pink. The highlighter (left) is very pigmented and you only need a little for a glow on your cheekbones. The pink (right) can be used as a blush but then no highlighter is needed as i find its a 2 in with the shimmer. Also a small amount of fallout when swatching the colours but nothing too concerning. Both are great colours with amazing pigmentation and soft texture.
