Who loves salted caramel?
Revolution brings you the best salted caramel recipe. There is no better combination than these 16 shimmer and matte addictive shades. From delicious nudes to tempting pinks to bring you salt and sweet at the same time.

It’s sweet, it’s buttery, it’s salted caramel goodness.

As you can see this is also one of the older palettes from the inside design. There are two fewer shades than you get in the newer palettes because there are two large highlight shades. Great if you’re of lighter skin tone, the reverse if you’re not. The names are also on a plastic sheet rather than the packaging itself.
As a result, it’s the older formula, that means while it’s still good it’s not as good as the newer palettes. They’re a little drier and harder to blend but they’re by no means unworkable. They’re more like your regular highstreet shadows.

It’s a good range of colours if you’re into the range of brown neutral tones again. There are two pops of colour. One more of a navy blue and one pink. They’re both shimmer shades, although it’s more obvious in the pink. This one mostly contains matte shades with only 6 shimmers overall.

If you’d like this one on its own it’s available at Revolution Beauty for £9

I Heart Revolution Chocolate Vault – Lemon Drizzle Chocolate Palette Review & Swatches – Part 4

The Lemon Drizzle Chocolate Palette is one of the non-exclusive palettes in the Chocolate Vault. It’s available separately for £9 from Revolution Beauty. It’s not Vegan but it is cruelty-free. It has a 12-month shelf life once opened.

I-Heart-Revolution-Lemon-Drizzle-Chocolate-Palette

I Heart Revolution Lemon Drizzle Chocolate Palette will make your mouth water with a yummy combination of 18 refreshing shades. This sweet-scented mixture of 10 yellow, brown, red and nude mattes and 8 warm metallics makes creating playful makeup looks a piece of cake.

I-Heart-Revolution-Lemon-Drizzle-Chocolate-Palette-Inside

It’s a collection of warm-toned yellows and oranges with a combination of matte and 8 shimmer shades. There’s only one real cool tone shade and that’s delicious. It’s a little out of place but you can certainly make it work.

These swatch well on the arm and go well on the eye too. There are enough deeper shades to do a nice brown smokey eye.

One thing to note is Fluffy and Tangy, which are both shimmer shades are very similar when you swatch them. One they eye they look nearly identical which is a shame.

I do like this palette, so if you’d like it you can get it separately to the set for £9.

I Heart Revolution Chocolate Vault – Smores Palette Review and Swatches – Part 3

The Smores Palette from I Heart Revolution is exclusive to the I Heart Revolution Vault, which you can get from Revolution Beauty or Superdrug for £72. It is Vegan and of course Cruelty-Free.

The outside has lovely white chocolate drips on, which makes it easy to find in your Chocolate palette collection.

The inside is full of warmer tones in neutral colours. There’s a nice mixture of matte and shimmers in here for that perfect brown smokey eye. The mattes blend well and the shimmers look amazing when they’re foiled.

I-Heart-Revolution-Chocolate-Smores-Palette-Swatches

It’s a particularly good palette if you’re fond of the neutral brown eye look. It’s got just enough foil shades to take it from day to night.

I like this palette and it’s great for the price. It’s currently exclusive to the Vault but I won’t be surprised if in the future we see this one as a single release.

The Smores Palette from I Heart Revolution is exclusive to the I Heart Revolution Vault, which you can get from Revolution Beauty or Superdrug for £72.

I Heart Revolution Chocolate Vault – Lipglosses Review & Swatches – Praline, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Cherry – Part 2

I Heart Revolution Chocolate Vault – Lipglosses Review & Swatches – Praline, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Cherry – Part 2

As part of the I Heart Revolution Chocolate Vault set we get three lipglosses. Two are exclusive to the vault with the third being already part of the I Heart Revolution range. They contain 2.5ml of product and have a 12-month shelf life once opened. They are cruelty-free but while the Salted Caramel gloss is Vegan I can’t guarantee the others are.

I-Heart-Revolution-Vault-Glosses

I was surprised at how much I like these. I am not a gloss person but these are not sticky at all. They, of course, won’t last once you start eating and they are all quite sheer. This, however, is a feature of all glosses, so I can’t count that against them. They are all quite heavily fragranced but that doesn’t last on the lips. However, if you’re allergic to fragrance this might cause an issue.

Salted Caramel

I-Heart-Revolution-Salted-Caramel-Lipgloss-Swatch

This is the one that’s available to buy separately for £3 from Superdrug or Revolution Beauty. It’s a light cool nude colour. This one has a salty smell. It looks good on me and I like it.

Praline

I-Heart-Revolution-Lipgloss-Praline-Swatch

As you can see Praline and Salted Caramel are pretty much the same colour but Praline is the pinker version. This one has a very sweet smell.

Chocolate Cherry

I-Heart-Revolution-Chocolate-Cherry-Lipgloss-Swatch

Chocolate Cherry smells like cherry and is the most opaque of them but also sheer. It looks very dark in the tube but goes a lovely shade on the lips.

All in all, I like these glosses. Do you like them?

The vault is still available from Superdrug or Revolution Beauty.

I Heart Revolution Chocolate Vault  Review – Part 1

The Chocolate Vault is one of the Christmas Gifts from Revolution this year. At full price, it costs £80 but is currently reduced on Superdrugs site to £60. They’ve also appeared on Revolution Beauty‘s website costing £72. Revolution claims there is £100 worth of product inside.

So let’s take a quick look at what’s inside.

i-Heart-Revolution-Chocolate-Vault-Inside

There are 6 Chocolate bar palettes, each regularly priced at £8.99 each. 2 highlighter palettes, each regularly priced at £6 each. Three lipglosses which retail around the £3-£4 price mark.

Now I’m sure if you’re like me you’re wondering how that adds up to £100. It’s actually closer to £78. According to the Revolution team, it was a misprint.

So that aside let’s look at what we have for our money.

First, we have 3 non-exclusive palettes in the form of the Lemon Drizzle Palette, Macaroon Palette and Salted Caramel Palette. Of these three, Salted Caramel has been out the longest and the other two are very recent releases. Salted Caramel is also in the old design.

The 3 exclusive palettes are Smores Palette, Cranberries & Chocolate Palette and Strawberry Cheesecake palette. Smores is a warm brown palette, Cranberries and Chocolate is a warm-toned brown/red palette and Strawberry Cheesecake is a cooler toned pink palette.

I-Heart-Revolution-Chocolate-Vault-All-PalettesNext, we have two exclusive face palettes. The Praline and Chocolate Strawberry palettes. One is a highlighter palette and the other a blush and contour palette. These seem to be more suited to the light to medium end of the spectrum but could work for darker skin tones too.

There are also 3 lip glosses in 3 different fragrances. Praline is a warm light brown colour with a sweet fragrance. Salted Caramel is a cool light brown colour with a salted chocolate fragrance and Chocolate Cherry is a berry red with a cherry fragrance.

So that’s the basics of the set. Do you like it? Are you asking for it for Christmas?

More in-depth reviews of the palettes and gloss will come in future posts. Stay tuned!
