I Heart Makeup Golden Bar Eyeshadow Palette Review+Swatches

by - 25.12.16

For Christmas, I recieved this palette from my best friend and I thought that I'd review it for you guys. I'll be including swatches as well and I've tried my best but the swatching isn't my forte so bear with while I learn. It makes me so happy when I see this palette in my collection beacuse it's just so gorgeous and I know that I'll get my use out of it. I love you all to pluto and beyond. I mean it from the bottom of my heart! xx

The Golden Bar Palette is by I Heart Makeup. This brand is part of TAM Beauty (along with Freedom and Makeup Revolution). It costs 8.99 pounds so it's really affordable. I've heard that it's a dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, but I haven't tested it out for myself so I can't promise.

It has really good pigmentation and the shadows are smooth. They blend really well. The only downside to this palette is that there aren't any matte shades. They're all shimmery shades, some more than others. You would probably need another eyeshadow as a base colour. The colours are bronzy and would look amazing on any skin tone.

There are two brow bone/inner corner highlights. One is more icy and white and the other is a pinky, golden shade. Both look good on my skin, however I prefer the second one because it's a bit more subtle and fits better with more eye looks.

The palette comes with a double ended applicator. They're nice for packing on the colour but not really for blending. I suggest just using your own brush instead.


I've swatched each row separately. My favourite colours are Wrapped, Golden, Box and Cocoa.

This is the first row. There's an white/icy highlighter at the top and then two pinky shades, a golden shade and a chocolate brown shade.

This is the second row. It has all eyeshadows. There are three golden, shimmery shades, two khaki green shades and a purpley-brown shade.

SHADES: (left to right) Block, Box, Bar, Golden, Foil, Wrapper

The third row once again has four shadows and a highlighter. I love Cocoa, it's a gorgeous auburn, reddish colour.
