I Heart Revolution One True Love Shake n’ Sparkle Glitter Palette | Review and Swatches

The build up to the release of these glitter palettes from I Heart Revolution, were just too much for me to handle. I felt like Revolution had actually been inside my head and created a product from all of my inner girly-girl dreams! The outer case of the One True Love palette is pink and actually has a bunch of glitter and confetti inside liquid which moves around inside it. I could literally sit for hours and watch it moving around. Baby J loved it too and kept trying to steal it when I wasn’t looking!

Inside the palette are nine eyeshadow shades – three mattes and six shimmers. They are a mixture of golds, pinks and burgundies and are very aesthetically pleasing.

However, and here’s the most disappointing bit, I really didn’t get on well with the formula of this palette. I had a nightmare swatching it and some shades hard panned immediately. I had to run my finger in the pan as usual, rub my skin hard to get the pigment I had picked up onto it and then go into the pan again to try and deepen up the swatches. It was hard work!

I really do love the look of the palette and the gorgeous colour selection, I’m just so disappointed with the pigment of every shade. There isn’t one in there that really blows me away and makes up for it. They were also very hard work to apply to the eyes and it took a long time for me to achieve a look that had a more dramatic effect. I think this palette would be good if you like subtle eyeshadow looks. I’m gutted to be honest because I’ve never had a bum I Heart Revolution product and I was so excited for the launch of these. I would like to swatch the other two palettes in store, before I go and purchase either one of them.

If I haven’t put you off, you can buy your own here.

  1. Great review! That’s such a bummer that the pigmentation isn’t great! I’ve had that happen to me with a couple palettes I’ve purchased recently. The packaging is very pretty though!

  2. The packaging is gorgeous! It’s too bad that the pigmentation isn’t as awesome 😦 Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m so glad I read this as I was close to picking them up – the shades look pretty but you’re right, none of them really look like they pack a punch!

    I bought all 3 of them because they are so gorgeous. And now I wanted to create a look with One True Love and we share the exact same opinion. They are very hard to work with, zero pigmentation and there’s no shade in the palette that I liked. So disappointed. Hope the other two will be better. xx

    1. That’s such a shame! πŸ˜” I think you might be lucky with the green one though, that one looks really pigmented online. Please let me know how you get on with it! X
