I <3 Make-up are one of those brands that have recently appeared and take inspiration from the higher end side of the make-up spectrum. This post isn't about whether it's right or not to do that. It's simply my thoughts on their Chocolate Glow palettes. From the off I think the packaging is cute but a little to girly/juvenile for my taste. Having the name of the brand on the front would have been a good idea. If you take the cardboard off you only have the name on the back label. But you get what you pay for!
However, the formula is lovely. Both the Light and Glow and Bronze and Glow powders are incredibly creamy and blendable. They aren't the most pigmented but I tend to prefer that in cheek products. I'm a tad heavy handed and can quite easily look like a clown (Sleek blushers I'm looking at you).
I think these little compacts are a fantastic idea for those who don't want to carry around two separate products and for those that haven't got a massive amount of money to spend on their make-up. Admittedly, I don't reach for them as often as some of my tried and true favourites. However, I'll definitely be perusing this brand more often!
