I Heart Makeup Chocolate Vice Palette

I kind of wish Makeup Revolution would stop coming out with chocolate palettes. Okay, let's be honest, not really, but my checking account would probably thank them because I can't help myself, I have to collect them all. The most current chocolate palette is the Vice palette, which came out around the same time as Too Faced's Sweet Peach palette. While not a direct dupe this was intended to be a similar palette. I couldn't resist the pretty oranges and literally scooped up the Vice palette as soon as it dropped.







As always, the packaging is really cute, although not in the expected peach color and instead a sleek black. The colors are gorgeous and while I really, really wanted to love this palette I was disappointed. Again the quality wasn't what I've come to expect from Makeup Revolution, particularly the chocolate palettes so that was kind of a bummer. I must say, I'm really impressed with the middle row of shades, which are all highly pigmented and super buttery and blendable. However, I already have a million shades that are like those...it was the last row I was really hoping to be wowed by and it just didn't happen. The colors are not very pigmented (possibly buildable, will have to play around with them) and pretty chalky. The top row was full of chunky glitter shades, which are never my thing. Overall the palette was okay, better than the Pink Fizz palette, but I probably wouldn't purchase again.

Have you guys tried any of the Makeup Revolution Chocolate Palettes? Which is your favorite? XO

  1. Great review. The middle row would be my choice too, bottom row, not so much!! Oh I don't like when you get so excited for a new product, then it disappoints but fun none the less!! Hope you're having a wonderful day gorgeous gal!!

    1. You know me, I love a good collection so I had to have it and I've actually used it quite a bit for that middle row so I guess it was still money well spent! I hope your week has been great so far, happy Wednesday! XO -Kim

  2. I don't like the look of this palette tbh, it looks too same old same old if you know what I mean? The packaging is pretty cool though!

    1. I definitely get what you mean. Aside from a couple of the colors I have pretty much every other shade in some palette or another, and those colors disappointed unfortunately! I do love a good bronze though, regardless of how many shades I have of it! Thanks for stopping in lovely! XO -Kim

  5. I've been dying to get my hands on this palette, the shades are gorgeous! I think I'll buy it since I'm saving for my baby so I don't want to splurge on the "real thing!"

    1. Congrats on the baby, that is so exciting and obvs so much funner to save for :D This one is really pretty, I'm not sure how it compares to the other one, but Revolution definitely do some of the best dupes. If you haven't tried it yet, I'd highly recommend the white chocolate palette from the same line, that one is my favorite palette of all time! XO -Kim

    1. Awww Nadia, how are you my gorgeous friend? It was a disappointment, I was so hoping the oranges would be lovely and pigmented, but at least there were a few gems in this one. The pink one was just awful all around! I hope you are having a great week my beautiful sweet friend! XO -Kim
