I ♡ Makeup Naked Chocolate Palette | Review & Swatches!

Makeup Revolution are taking the world by storm at the moment with new releases every week, I can't keep up but it's so exciting and I feel I need to try everything! One of many new releases by the brand is the I ♡ Makeup Naked Chocolate Eyeshadow Palette, there are already two palettes in the Chocolate range making this one the third and boy is it a goodun. The palette offers sixteen beautiful shades ranging from matte to shimmer, light to dark, packaged in this fun and cute white Chocolate bar style costing just £7.99*. I personally love the design and think its totally different to anything I have ever seen before, it also stands out nicely in my collection!

The shades in this palette have fun and interesting names, related to chocolate of course so a big thumbs up to whoever thought out these names, they're all so good! From left to right the shades are:

Smoothly: Light, matte cream.
Divine: Shimmery bronze.
Mocha Lover: Shimmery lighter bronze.
Dipped: Satin pale browny taupe.
Choc-fest: Matte, warm red brown.
Adorable: Shimmery light beige.
Buttons: Shimmery browny taupe.
Frosted Choc: Shimmery copper bronze.
Delight: Satin darker bronze.
Sweet Shop: Matte warm toned brown.
Suger: Satin dark toned brown.
Double Dip: Shimmery gold.
Tob-le-rone: Matte taupe.
White: Matte dark brown.
Milky: Matte red toned taupe.
Way: Shimmery yellow/gold.

I have to say, hands down, I am in love with this palette! The shades are all so beautiful that suit my skin tone so well, they are total me shades. I also can't believe how pigmented each and every colour is especially the matte shades, they are super buttery and stay in place all day. I'm also extremely impressed with the amount of matte shades included in the palette, I always find palettes seem to throw in a lot of shimmers but less mattes, whereas this one is a perfect mix. I have already created several completely different looks using this palette, ones that I will be featuring on my channel so if you want to see this palette in work be sure to check the videos out when they're up! 

I'm not sure if it's just me but when using the shades I definitely smell a very slight hint of sweetness, a little like chocolate which is such a fab feature for this palette. After doing a little research in to this palette I actually discovered that one of the ingredients in each shadow is cocoa powder which explains the lovely scent, genius! If you are yet to try anything from Makeup Revolution I highly recommend you try this one, available online from Makeup Revolution or Superdrug, it's also available in selected Superdrug stores.
