Hello babs! It’s been so long since I’ve done a chocolate bar palette review on my blog so why not come at you today with a review of the newly released chocolate bar in the collection!!!! It’s the 24K Gold palette from I Heart Makeup and I got mine off TAM Beauty for £8.99 but it is also available on Superdrug for the same price.
Side note: You get 14 eyeshadows with 1.22g/0.043oz of product in and 2 eyeshadows with 2.44g/0.085oz of product in.
The eyeshadows come in a brown shiny plastic packaging which has a shiny gold 3D melted chocolate effect on the front. The palette flips open and has a click shut mechanism. Inside you get a big, good quality mirror and a dual ended-sponge applicator. The palette also comes with a plastic removable sheet inside which has all of the shade names on it.
MICA, TALC, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, POLYETHYLENE, POLYBUTENE, DIMETHICONE, SILICA, METHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN, TIN OXIDE, [+/-: CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 77007, CI 15850, CI 19140, CI 77288, CI 16035]
First off the packaging is absolutely stunning! I am loving the shiny gold 3D melted effect on the front. It is very similar to the Golden Bar packaging but this one is shiny whereas the Golden Bar one is matte. The shades inside definitely look right up my street as there are a lot of warm tones but you also have the pop of green which is nice. I really love how this palette has a matte off-white shade and a matte black like yesssssssssss! In regards to the mattes and shimmers in the palette I will definitely say there are a lot more shimmers to mattes but you definitely have a matte shade for everything to create a decent look. You can definitely create a variety of looks with this palette because you have the more natural everyday look but then you can also make it smoky using the darker brown and the black shade… you’ve also got a lot of choice for a pop of colour on the lid which I love. There are 2 shades which do look quite similar for me and they are the shimmer shades Flare and Real… As always these work well on the eyes and are very creamy in formula apart from the black shade which is extremely chalky to the touch and does have some kick-back.
Side note: I have dipped in twice to do my swatches like I always do to get a good opinion on the shadows pigmentation with build 🙂
(Without and with flash)
Bling – This is a gold shimmer which could be good to use as an inner corner highlight. Pigmentation 3/5.
Lustre – This is an off-white matte shade which could be good to use to set an eyelid primer as well as highlighter under the brow bone to help the crease shades blend. Pigmentation 3/5.
Spirit – This is an ashy brown matte shade which could be good to use as a transition shade in the crease. Pigmentation 3/5.
Spice – This is a mauve brown matte shade. Pigmentation 3/5.
Gilded – This is a terracotta brown matte shade which could also be good to use as a transition shade in the crease. Pigmentation 3/5.
Flare – This is a reddy brown shimmer shade which looks very similar to the shade Real. Pigmentation 4/5.
Stun – This is an orangey gold shimmer. Pigmentation 4/5.
Real – This is a reddy brown shimmer shade which looks very similar to the shade Flare. Pigmentation 4/5.
Moonlit – This is a peachy pink shimmer which could be good to use as an inner corner or under the brow bone highlight. Pigmentation 3/5.
Glacier – This is a green foil like shade (felt a lot more buttery compared to the shimmers). Pigmentation 4/5.
Solitaire – This is a bronzy gold foil like shade (felt a lot more buttery compared to the shimmers). Pigmentation 4/5.
Rock – This is a fiery red shimmer. Pigmentation 4/5.
Stone – This is a peach matte shade which could be good to use as a transition shade. Pigmentation 3/5.
Crown – This is a brick brown matte shade. Pigmentation 3/5.
Satellite – This is a black matte shade which does need slight building but such a good black! Pigmentation 4/5.
Gem – This is a peachy champagne gold shimmer which could be good to use as an inner corner or under the brow bone highlight. Pigmentation 4/5.
I definitely think this is going to become one of my favourite chocolate bar palettes in the collection because it’s just so good!!! The mattes don’t have the best pigmentation but they are easily buildable which I like and the shimmers are bomb! You can literally create any look with this palette which is what I love and definitely think it will be a go-to. If you want a palette which you can create a variety of looks with then this is your guy… you even have a nice pop of green and red in it as well 😀 Highly recommend… in my top 3 of chocolate bar palettes I would recommend!
