Makeup Revolution Chocolate Vice – Sweet Peach Dupe?

this-one-3

We’re all guilty of lusting after the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette every so often (or if you’re like me, all the time). But it comes with a hefty price tag, so  I decided to try out its alleged Makeup Revolution/I Heart Makeup dupe: their Chocolate Vice Palette. The colour selection looked absolutely unreal, and when I looked at the tester in the store it looked too good to pass up. I don’t own the Too Faced palette and I love this palette anyway; but I just wanted to put it to the dupe test!

Okay, so you have no idea how long I’d been wanting to get my hands on these brushes before they were half price at Boots, (which was basically buy one get one free in my eyes). It’d been so long that I knew I just had to have these in my life.

Essence Keep It Perfect Fixing Spray

I’d been seeing the brand name Essence floating around quite a bit recently, and it always catches my eye when I go into wilkos (wilkinsons). When I eventually decided to spend some real time looking at their pretty big display, I saw that they had a fixing spray – something I really needed in my collection. Their keep it perfect make-up fixing spray was just £3.00 for 50ml – the perfect travel size and the perfect price for something to try out. (Plus the packaging is super cute).

The colours in the Soft Matte Lip Cream range are all named after places around the world which I thought was awesome, and it made choosing a colour even more interesting. After literally about half an hour I eventually settled on the colour Seoul, which is an amazing bright purple that I’m literally obsessed with.
