I Heart Makeup Golden Bar Eyeshadow Palette | Makeup Revolution

Every so often, I find a drugstore product that makes me go WOW. This occasion, it’s the I Heart Golden Bar Eyeshadow Palette by Makeup Revolution. I love a good dupe and I think it’s just great to be able to offer people a budget version of a high end product. They knocked it out of the bag with this chocolatey goodness!

The packaging is fun and pretty and I love all the shimmers in the palette! 16 decadent shades are housed in this delight and I can use every colour to create a natural to smokey look. Although this has been out for some time now, I have only just got my hands on it. It was an impulse purchase and I don’t regret it!

I’m totally obsessed with the packaging of this. It looks so luxurious and the illusion of melted chocolate in a metallic golden finish looks very inviting. This is every girls make up dream come alive – chocolate and makeup! When you open the palette, there is a strong sweet scent which resembles chocolate.

Here are some of my favourite picks from the palette:

L’oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation

I love that L’oreal are introducing different lines into their infallible range. Since I love Pro-Glow so much, I wanted to try this new one which claims to offer full coverage.

LOREAL INFALLIBLE TOTAL COVER FOUNDATION 1

The texture is quite thick which feels like foam and you need the tiniest amount to give you decent coverage. The first negative I noticed straight away was that the formula was difficult to blend. I did use a beauty blender though and this probably didn’t do me any favours. Due to thickness of the formula, I recommend using a brush to apply.

What I like about this foundation though is the coverage it gives – it really is total cover.

During my testing period I had this foundation on for 10 hours and there was no noticeable patchiness or oiliness. However, the second time I wore this, there was a few dry patches on my face especially around the nose area and I can’t think what I had done differently. I am going to try this mixed in with a lighter foundation such a Pro-Glow as I feel it will lighten the consistency.

Pros

  • Long lasting
  • Full coverage
  • Large shade selection for light skin tones
  • Comparable to high end foundation
  • Great for oily skin (no breakouts on the t zone)
  • A little goes a long way
  • Good value for the price you pay

Cons

  • Limited shade selection for dark skin tones
  • Patchy around nose area
  • Difficult to blend with Beauty Blender
  • May need mixing with a lightweight foundation
  • Applied with two layers and it can look ‘caked on’
  • Hard texture
  • Thick consistency
  • Need to work with it very quickly

Swatches

I picked up the shade Sand and have done a swatch for you below:

LOREAL INFALLIBLE TOTAL COVER FOUNDATION 3

You can see what I mean about the thick and foam like consistency – it is quite weighty.

LOREAL INFALLIBLE TOTAL COVER FOUNDATION 4

I have shown the swatch blended out too so you get an idea of the coverage.

L’oreal are doing amazing with all their new releases – all of which I have loved so far, but I am still on the fence with this one.

You can purchase the foundation right here for only Β£9.99.
