Hi there! I got myself this I Heart MakeUp Go! To The City palette when it was on sale for £1.99 a while ago. It’s sad when a good product is about to be discontinued. But I have to admit I love picking up soon-to-be-discontinued products when they’re on sale. But who doesn’t? 🙂 Now let’s take a closer look at this palette.
The Go! To The City palette a contains 2 blushers, 1 highlighter and 6 eyeshadows. The highlighter (H) is shimmery and nicely pigmented. I’ll be using it a lot, I think. The blushes – coral (B1) and pink (B2) – are very pretty. They’re well pigmented and the colours really pop.
I do like the eyeshadows too. The first shade is a matte light beige. All the other shades are shimmery – some of them almost metallic. They’re easy to blend and the pigmentation is a dream. However, I noticed that all these eyeshadows are featured in a different palette, namely I Heart MakeUp’s Passion palette. So if you have the Passion palette, you don’t really need this one.
Now let’s have one more look at the palette. Isn’t it pretty? And everything looks so organised and neat. OK, it won’t look like this for long, but for the moment it does and I’m enjoying it. 🙂
If you fancy I Heart MakeUp’s Go! To The City palette, you’ll have to look online because it appears that both Superdrug and MakeUp Revolution no longer sell it.
As always, feel free to comment if you like. And if you have this palette, please let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!
Hi there! Just a few weeks ago MakeUp Revolution did a sensational promotion. It was something like buy stuff worth £30 and get lots of products FOR FREE! Let me show you the goodies – which items I paid for and which ones came for free.
The Fastlove and MakeUp Geek palettes were part of the free products bundle. The Fastlove palette is usually £5.99, the MakeUp Geek palette is £7.99. I’ve been ogling both palettes for a while, so it’s great they came for free. 🙂
The next palettes are Unicorns Unite, Welcome To The Pleasuredome and Girl Panic. These palettes are normally £6, but MUR did a 3 for 2 promotion, so I paid £12 in total for these three palettes.
Now on to the smaller products. I bought 8 liphug lipsticks (red packaging) for £1.50 each – that’s £12 in total. Everything else in the pic to the right came for free! The freebies were 3 lip geek lipsticks, a purplish WOW lipgloss, a blush stick (‘Malibu’), an ultra velour lip lacquer, a single eyeshadow (black) and a small plastic container filled with loose pigments. I won’t be using all these products, but I can give some of them away!
I understand that the freebies are either not as popular as the bestsellers or that they’re going to be discontinued, but seriously, the products are good and some of them were on my wish list, so I won’t complain. 😀

Hi there! One of the palettes I bought recently is I Heart MakeUp’s I Am Poweful palette. It’s a compact that contains six eyeshadows, a lipstick and a mirror. It’s quite small, so it fits into every handbag.
I don’t like the lipstick because the colour is nothing I’d normally wear. It’s an intense berry shade (it’s darker than in the photograph) with a pearly shine. I’ll see if I can make it work by mixing it with lipliner or lipgloss…
The eyeshadows are very nice. Like all the other I Heart MakeUp eyeshadows these ones are buttery, soft and easy to blend. The selection of shades is also quite nice as all the shades could be considered neutrals or shades that go well with neutrals.
I Heart MakeUp I Am Poweful is a good compact that’s on sale for £2.99 at the moment. However, if you consider buying this palette and if you already have the Passion palette, you don’t really need this one (unless you really want this lipstick…). This is because all the shades in this compact are also featured in the Passion palette.
Who else has this compact and what do you think of it?

Hi there! Like a few other ladies I too went nuts during my latest MakeUp Revolution online shopping spree. One of the palettes I bought is I Heart MakeUp’s I Heart Passion Eyeshadow Palette. (Scroll down for swatches.)
This eye palette contains 16 shades – 10 shimmers and 6 mattes. Whilst there are five rather striking shimmers (two purples, a green, a blue and a black/silver shade), everything else could easily be part of a nude palette. This means there’s something for everyone in this quite versatile eyeshadow collection!
I’m very pleased with the selection of shades and with the quality of the eyeshadows. They’re buttery and soft and easy to blend. My favourite shades are the mattes – all of them. They were selected very well and they compliment the shimmers nicely.

Unfortunately I Heart MakeUp’s I Heart Passion Eyeshadow Palette is about to be discontinued. It is currently available for £3.99 only.
