I HEART MAKEUP - GO! PALETTES REVIEW & SWATCHES

Posted on October 20, 2014

Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Go! Palettes

Since my Makeup Revolution What You Waiting For Palette Review post (we all know how much I love that thing by now), I have been pondering which palettes to review next. I decided to go with the Go! Palettes by their sister line, I Heart Makeup, simply because they are so simple, functional and probably the next best on my list. 

You may see the resemblance of the Go! Palette with the Tarte Limited Edition Rainforest After Dark palette which has also been ravedby many. Although differences apply (such as the centre shade is a highlighter instead of a blush), I have to admit they struck me as pretty similar in terms of design. I love how Makeup Revolution put in these shades as opposed to duplicating the exact same shades from Tarte as I actually prefer the MUR shades a lot more.

Swatches of the Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Go! Palettes

Swatches left to right: starting from the eyeshadow color on the right, and ending with the peach-toned blush. 

The shades and color payoff, as usual, don't disappoint. Very wearable neutral shades all of which are shimmery apart from the matte base shade on the very left. If you have followed my blog for a while you will know I love me some pink/coppery gold eyeshadows, so the second, third, and fourth from the left have to be my absolute favorites. 
I do have to say that although the palette is great for traveling, I would hope that it came with a mirror. It's great to have a clear lid so you can see the shades in it too, but I would much prefer a mirror for on-the-go, as the name would probably suggest.
The blush colors are beautiful too - a matte rosy pink as well as a peachy pink if you're going for the nude look.

The Go to Hell! Palette boasts 19 spectacular shades with a great range of greens, fuschias, purples, blues, blacks and nudes. Again, this makes for a great palette for on-the-go as you have 19 beautiful shades that you could just stick in your handbag. A mirror and some makeup brushes for applying the eyeshadows would be my concern, but given that the color payoff is once again, amazing and it has a lovely shade range, I ain't complaining anymore!

I got a little confused whilst swatching the shades so I hope I get this right:

First row: Outer ring starting from the silver and going anti-clockwise to black, bottle green, fuschia etc.
Second row: Inner ring starting from the lightest color on the top and going anti-clockwise.

I love the mix of base shades, a vibrant fuschia, some silver gunmetal shades and the variety of browns and nudes that can easily create an everyday look. This would be a palette I'd take with me if I have an event to go to abroad, where I can use the inner ring for the daytime and glam up the look with the outer ring!

There are two other I ♡ Makeup Go! Palettes that I don't own - the Go to the City! Palette and the Go to Heaven Palette which is probably one that I would love!

I've never been the girl to stick to one particular style. At times I can dress ultra-feminine, other times, I dress like a boy without a care in the world. But there's one thing that remains consistent in my outfits - and that's comfort. I think a knit and a flared midi skirt makes the perfect ensemble for both a feminine vibe but adds to the comfort factor as well. 
I paired this casual, cobalt blue knit with two styles of skirts - one is a black pleated faux leather skirt that gives off a 'bad girl' vibe. Whilst the other white cotton skirt is definitely more angelic. If I got to do it again, I'm not sure I would've paired the same shoes though. The Zalora heels in black leather with gold buckle takes the outfit out of its fairytale. Nonetheless, these two outfits are great alternatives where all pieces are the perfect 'throw-on-and-go' without making me look too sloppy! The cobalt blue makes a great everyday pop of color without being too bold, or too boring.
Which look would you wear?
