Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my Too Faced Chocolate and Bon-Bons palettes. Their smell alone is worth the investment but they are so popular with me because the colors are fantastic, the wear so well, last all day and the palettes are filled with the greatest colors.
However, I have found the most amazing dupes for those that just can't bite the Too Faced price tag.
Makeup Revolution, ladies! This UK brand (also sold at Ulta) has fantastic pricing and also ships to Canada. Plus, their chocolate palettes retail for under $13 CAD. Seriously, you can not beat this price.
You can even see from the packaging that Makeup Revolution has embraced the chocolate bar look. However, one thing to mention is the smell - Too Faced definitely got the chocolate smell down whereas the Makeup Revolution palette, though scented, smells slightly more processed.
But, check out how close the colors are. Though the layout of the colors on the Makeup Revolution palette (right) is not in the exact same place as the Too Faced palette, the colors are virtually identical.
Color test! The blue shadow is one of my favorites in my Semi-Sweet palette (Blueberry Swirl) so it's fitting to use this one as a comparison (left is Too Faced) to Crunch in the Makeup Revolution palette. The colors both seem to be almost identical.
Up next is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar (Original) compared to Makeup Revolution I Heart Chocolate palette.
I really do love the Makeup Revolution packaging. Truly, it's a work of art in itself.
Look at these colors though. These palettes are virtually the same.
In sticking with my favorite color in my Chocolate Bar, I chose to compare the dark burgandy shade. The left one is the color from my Too Faced palette (Cherry Cordial) and it's compared to What A Way to Go. I must say, I greatly prefer the color in the Makeup Revolution palette - it's brighter, more burgandy in color and even has a better shimmer.
I am blown away by how similar these palettes are. Truly, similar in smell, texture, durability and color. This is, by far, one of the best dupes I have ever found.
What are your thoughts ladies?
