Too Faced Dupes: Makeup Revolution Chocolate Palettes

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.

Up first is the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette compared to Makeup Revolution I Heart Chocolate Salted Caramel.

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?

My First FabFitFun Unboxing: Fall 2016

Despite my girlfriends being subscribers, I've been holding off on getting FabFitFun.  My reasoning for this was because I currently subscribe to LipMonthly, Ipsy and Starlooks (since cancelled).  However, after receiving my FabFitFun box, I will be a subscriber for LIFE.

Seriously, this box is fantastic.

First off, this box is JAM PACKED with so many great things.  I am still in awe that I got all th colors I was hoping for and even the saying on the cup was what I wanted.  This box is valued at $240 USD and I paid about $60 CAD for it.  SUCH A GREAT DEAL.

My box contained a gorgeous ModCloth Loch and Key Scarf (red/green/blue plaid)at  $35, Cottenelle Fresh Care Cleansing Cloths (sponsored), ToeSox Toeless Fitness Socks at $18, Secret Outlast Xtend Clear Gel (sponsored), Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum at $50, FabFitFun Nature Coloring Book and Pencil Crayons at $14, Pur Cosmetics Nude Collection Eyeshadow at $50, the BrowGal Clear Eyebrow Gel at $20, Mullein & Sparrow French Lavender Body Oil at $18, Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Body Wash Infused Buffer at $16 and the Created Co. To-Go Coffee Mug at $19.

Eeeck, I am IN LOVE with everything but have to pull out this palette to show you how gorgeous the colors are.  Check this out.

It looks very similar to a W7 palette I own but this is much better quality.  Anyway, I can't wait to try this out.  I will absolutely be posting a FOTD with this palette.

If you are like me and contemplating FabFitFun, here's a link to $10 off your first box.  Go and get one!  http://xo.fff.me/eqJI5
