I've heard so many great things about Zoeva over the past few months, I knew it was time I invested in their products after seeing many YouTubers raving over the Cocoa Blend palette, I hit Depop to see if I could pick up a bargain. And I did exactly that, I managed to get this nearly-new palette for a tiny £10!
So was it worth the hype? Absolutely. The shadows are such an amazing range, from super light nude for a base to a shimmery black for that super smokey look. Plus there are a few shades that I would never have the thought to have tried. The red in particular is really stunning and reminds me exactly of Mac Cranberry shadow. I've been being a little more daring with the shades I've been trying so this gorgeous red is great for experimenting with a bit more colour going into spring.
The palette features both matte and shimmer shades, so is ideal for creating lots of different looks. I'm a huge fan of shimmer shades to help highlight a look, so the colours of this palette are just perfect for me. The shades are really buttery and the pigmentation is pretty impressive. These swatches are just from a quick dip on my finger and and a swipe on my arm. The shades can be easily built up from a subtle shade to a deep block of colour. There is a shade for every occasion so make this perfect for taking travelling and creating so many different looks.
I would certainly recommend trying out the Zoeva eyeshadow range and checking out their other palettes if this isn't the right one for you. Plus Depop is such a good place to pick up make up bargains, if you want to try something before making the splurge! I can't wait to try some more of Zoeva's products!
