MAKEUP REVOLUTION: I <3 MAKEUP HAUL (REVIEW AND SWATCHES)

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 003

Hi beauties!

If you’re a follower of my blog and/or follow me on Instagram then you already know of my *obsession* with the brand from the UK “Makeup Revolution”. They have amazing products for drugstore prices – even cheaper! I recently found out that they just came out with a sister brand called “I ❤ MAKEUP”.

You can purchase this brand from their website www.makeuprevolutionstore.com and once you go there you will see a tab that’s written “I ❤ MAKEUP”.

I feel this sister brand is a tad bit more expensive than the items from the Makeup Revolution brand while still being very afforable! I think it’s a bit more expensive due to the focus on better packaging and just overall appearance of the items. Quality wise I can’t really tell you which brand is better – I mean they both come from the same company in the end. You will find MANY makeup dupes for higher end products from both of their lines. I purchased all of these items myself from their website.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 035

This is how the “I Heart Chocolate” palette comes packaged

This is one of the items that I was extremely excited about and just HAD to have when I saw it. It is called the “I Heart Chocolate” palette. I am sure many of you are familiar with the Too Faced cosmetics “Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette” which can be purchased at Sephora and other retail/online stores that carry Too Faced. The Too Faced Palette retails for $49.00 USD.

This “I Heart Chocolate” palette by I ❤ MAKEUP is literally an EXACT dupe for the Too Faced palette and this palette only retails for $14.78 CAD/$13.17 USD. Quite a steal if I don’t say so myself. Now you may be thinking “Ok well it can look the same but is the quality the same?” well that’s why I will show comparison swatches! (see I always have your back! haha)

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 036

This is the back of the packaging for the palette – It showcases the eyeshadow colors

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 017

This is the how the palette looks. How adorable is that?? I actually like it better than the Too Faced one! (and it’s much sleeker)

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 020

When you open the palette up it has a thin piece of plastic over the eye shadow colors with the names of each color (identical to how the Too Faced “Chocolate Bar Palette” came as well).

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 022

Adorable names too huh? I really love how they give names to each shade because usually when you buy less expensive palettes they don’t come with names for each color.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 019

The palette without the plastic sleeve.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 030

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 028

Now if you’re familiar with the Too Faced “Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette” then you know that it actually smells like cocoa. This palette unfortunately does not but I think I can live without that!

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 031

Here are the two palettes in comparison side by side. Too Faced to the left, I ❤ MAKEUP to the right.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 033

As you can see they are pretty much IDENTICAL. “I ❤ MAKEUP” literally has duped every single shade. The only difference is the placing of the cream shadow in the top row. Other than that each shade are identical dupes. Now for the fun part – side by side swatches of the Too Faced shades next to the I ❤ MAKEUP ones. I did NOT use a primer for these swatches. Each shade is labelled so hopefully it’s not confusing!

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 080

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 084

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 087

I did the swatches row by row. As you can see – the shades are literally identical and I am so impressed with the quality of the I ❤ MAKEUP shadows. For the price you literally cannot beat it! I am so tempted to return my Too Faced palette. If you have been wanting the Too Facedpalette but don’t want to spend the money I would TOTALLY ge this one. Just look at the side by side swatches. You can barely tell the difference. I also tested the shadows out and they are so long lasting as well. Once again this company has done it again. Such a fan.

Now the next items which are another Too Faced dupe are the I ❤ Makeup “Blushing Hearts” blushes and highlighter. I was ecstatic about these because I had always wanted the Too Faced ones but I just could not justify the price. The Too Faced ones are called the “Sweethearts Blush” and they retail for $30.00 USD. The I ❤ MAKEUP “Blushing Hearts” blushes and highlighter are literally exact dupes and retail for $8.23 USD/$9.23 CAD.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 004

I just cannot stop staring at them. They are sooo pretty and look exactly like the Too Faced ones. (Packaging and everything)

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 046

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 051

They claim to be “Triple Baked” which is awesome because anything baked is usually beautiful, especially on the skin!

 The first one I got is this pinky one in the shade “Candy Queen of Hearts”

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 048

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 047

 CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 050

Here is a swatch of all the shades mixed together. It’s a gorgeous pinky sheen that will look amazing on the cheeks.

The next one I got is called “Peachy Keen Heart”

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 03aa9

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 040

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 042

I love this one! Like the name states it’s more on the peachy/gold side. This is the swatch of all the shades mixed together. Gorgeous ❤

Here is their “Triple Baked Highlighter” which is the only Heart highlighter they have in this range so far.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 053

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 052

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 054

Look how gorgeous that highlight is! So pigmented and it’s a perfect pinky champagne shade that is flattering on so many skin tones. I love it.

The “Blushing Hearts” range also has some baked bronzers and I believe another blush shade but these are just the three that I picked up. You can see all of the items available through their website of course. I am definitely a huge fan of these products. I love less expensive dupes and with this brand that is exactly what you are getting along with amazing quality too! ❤ What more can you ask for?

The last item I picked up from the I ❤ MAKEUP line is one of their “Lip Geek” lipsticks.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 008

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 015

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 014

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 016

I got the shade “Dream About Success” which is a peachy pink shade.

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 012

Look at that packaging….. !! ❤

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 006

Swatched on the back of my hand

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 094

Swatched on my lips

CHOCOLATE BAR DUPE 095

It’s a satin finish that is very moisturizing on the lips.

Here is a photo I posted on Instagram (@JULIASALLURE) where I am wearing the lipstick on my lips as well as the I Heart Chocolate palette on my eyes ❤

Makeup Revolution has done it again with their sister brand I ❤ MAKEUP. I am just always so impressed with their creativity and the QUALITY that goes into each item. They ship internationally and take PayPal which is awesome. Like I keep saying, expect more and more products from this company here on my blog. I just cannot stay away! Once again you can purchase all of the items found here from their website.

Hope you guys liked this post! Xoxo

  1. I’ve heard of I ❤ Makeup but now that I know they have dupes for Too Faced Sweethearts blushes I'm definitely gonna check their online shop!! Btw you look absolutely stunning in that photo!!

  2. I only paid $29 for my Too Faced Palette otherwise I’d think about returning it too especially since I haven’t used it yet. Lovely swatches! I might have to get Peachy Keen Heart. I’m not sure the others would compliment my skin tone…Btw I agree you look stunning in your photo. What camera do you use? I just started my blog (Yay! My previous comments are as Ms.Reyes btw) and I’m using my iPhone as my camera doesn’t give me the best results color wise. But this is also due to my yellow lighting as well.

      1. Hi, I was wondering if you used any effects on your camera, because the color quality in your posts looks different than the color quality of these products in the site?

  3. omg.. you made my day 🙂 I had never heard of this brand. I love it.. Thank you so much for sharing,

    Love the pic!

    Hug your way.

  4. I just found your post while standing in the store googling reviews before buying this palette. I’ve had the chocolate bar palette on my wish list for sooooooooooo long but couldn’t justify the expense. I was ecstatic when I saw this palette but suspicious, until I saw your swatches! On my way home with it now! Thank you so much!

  5. Thank you for this Makeup Revolution review! Great products. I was thinking about getting these for a long time, now you pushed me to go and order it online! Can’t wait to get them. They’re lovely!

  6. Omg! You really just made my day with this post! I have the Too Faced palette and I use it so often that I need a new one, but $40 on makeup is not in my budget at the moment lol. Thanks so much for posting this, and you’re freaking gorgeous!

  7. I’ve recently bought the Death by Chocolate palette from MakeUp Revolution and the packaging is so so gorgeous. Far too pretty to ever use it. Did you know it also comes in a white chocolate edition called Naked Nude ? Didn’t know the US has a similar palette, though as you’ve said the UK version looks sleeker, but I appreciate the smell of cocoa.
