Hello babs! So it was my birthday yesterday and I received 3 new chocolate bar palettes so today I thought I would play around with one of them and review it here on my blog. The first one I am going to be reviewing is the Slime palette from I Heart Revolution. This is one out of 2 chocolate palettes that they have released for Halloween and I was so excited because this is the first time they have released chocolate palettes for Halloween ahhhh! (I’m not sure whether they are Halloween exclusives or whether they will remain permanent…) My sister Hayley picked this one up for me, not sure where from but it is available on both Revolution Beauty and Superdrug for £8.99.
There are x7 matte shades, x10 foil like shades and x1 shimmer shades which makes a total of 18 shades altogether. There is 1g / 0.03oz of product in each individual eyeshadow. This palette is cruelty-free but
The eyeshadows come in a shiny black plastic rectangular packaging which has a neon green 3D melted chocolate effect on the front (looks slightly similar to the Mint Chocolate palette). The palette flips open and has a click shut mechanism. Inside you get a full size mirror and the shade names are printed onto the packaging underneath each individual eyeshadow.
I wasn’t sure whether this was going to have a funky smell because of the name being Slime but I can confirm it just smells of chocolate like the majority of the others. As always, the scent is nothing too overpowering but I always like to mention it incase anyone reading is sensitive to scented products.
Now I was dead excited to get my hands on this palette because from the pictures online it just looks so fun!!! The neon green melted effect against the shiny black packaging is so eye-catching I LOVE IT!! I’m going to get the negatives out of the way first because I hate being negative… there are more shimmers in this palette compared to mattes and if you don’t know by now I prefer to have more mattes to work with rather than shimmers. I really like the colour selection of mattes that we get in here because they are all different, I just wish there was a few more in here. When I swatched the palette I noticed some of the shades were patchy in pigmentation, however I noticed the colour pay-off was so much better when I had applied them onto my eyes so just bare that in mind (don’t always go by swatches because I was very underwhelmed by a few shades but that soon changed when I saw how they performed on the eyes)
I absolutely love the colours in this palette and definitely think it’s quite unique in my collection. Majority of the shades are pigmented, whereas some aren’t… however like I mentioned the shades apply really well to the eyes and are easy to blend out. What I did notice is that the foil like shades and the shimmer work so much better if you wet your brush!!
Disclaimer: Don’t always rely on swatches of shadows because sometimes they perform better on the eyes than they do in the swatches or vice versa… I just like to show swatches so you get an idea on what the colours look like.

If you want to get your hands on this then I would definitely try to ASAP because I’m not sure whether its an exclusive for Halloween or whether its going to remain permanent… I honestly don’t think you will be disappointed if you pick this up.
