Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette

I don't know if it's just me that feels like this but I really cannot have too many eye shadows, having a choice is so much more fun, to be honest I've actually turned into a palette addict. I've got so many palettes and I love buying more, the problem is that I never actually get round to using them, so I was having a look through and I found the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette which was actually a Christmas present and it is so pretty that I made sure to start using it more, so I thought I'd do a little post on my thoughts on this palette and show you some swatches! 


I'd only ever tried Zoeva brushes before this, I love the quality of them and when I saw everyone raving about their eye shadow palettes I asked for one for Christmas, the Cocoa Blend palette was definitely the one that appealed to me the most, I'm so obsessed with warm toned browns and shimmery shades so I needed it! I do also really like the look of the Rose Golden palette so I'd quite like to try this next. You get 10 eye shadows in this palette which are a mixture of mattes, mattes and shimmers and they are a really good size I think, there is 1.5g in each pan plus the pans are quite big, I hate in some palettes where the pans are really small and close together so you get product everywhere! At £15.50 though even before I had tried it I thought it was really good value for money so I'd definitely suggesting having a look at Zoeva's palettes because they've definitely got something for everyone. The packaging is really good as well, it's not the most luxurious however it's nice and slim so perfect for travelling, only downside is that it doesn't have a mirror but this doesn't really bother me as I always use a big mirror anyway. 



I was actually so surprised at the quality of the eye shadows as well, considering the price and because Zoeva is more known for their brushes however some of these shades in my opinion are better than high end brands! I'm not going to say this is consistent throughout the whole palette, as there are two shades which I'm really not keen on but I will talk about them later, however aside from them the quality is so good, very pigmented and easy to blend! The shades you get are:

- Bitter Start. Palest matte nude.
- Sweeter End. Shimmer duo chrome nougat.
- Warm Notes. Glittering cranberry purple.
- Subtle Blend. Metallic deep bronze.
- Beans Are White. Deep cocoa brown matte.
- Pure Ganache. Pure and luxurious metallic gold.
- Substitute For Love. Toffee brown with subtle shimmer.
- Freshly Toasted. Rich mahogany brown.
- Infusion. Matte dark brown infused with gold glitter.
- Delicate Acidity. Berry toned brown shimmer.

Bottom row left to right: Pure Ganache, Substitute For Love, Freshly Toasted, Infusion, Delicate Acidity

Without a doubt my absolute favourites from this palette are Warm Notes and Pure Ganache, they are by far the best quality, they are so pigmented and just the most gorgeous shades! The two shades that I don't like are Beans Are White and Infusion, they were just far too chalky for me and they took so much work even to show up on a swatch, for me the pigmentation just isn't there plus I tend to stay away from dark shades like this anyway. Delicate Acidity is absolutely gorgeous as well, this is normally something that would scare me off as it is bold however I can't wait to play around with this more and see what I can come up with. I really like Sweeter End as well, it isn't the most bold and takes a little bit of work however it is so pretty, I really want to use Warm Notes on Valentines Day, I think is it is so perfect for a really girly look! I love them all apart from the two mentioned so to me this palette is definitely a must have, it's a really good price and the quality doesn't disappoint. This was bought for me from Beauty Bay where there is also a few more of their palettes on their so they are definitely worth a look, I will 100% be trying more of Zoeva's palettes I can't get over how nice they are. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of Zoeva's make up and what you think!

  1. Pure Ganache is gorgeous and just from looking at the swatches I can tell that would probably be my favourite too! I've been wanting some Zoeva brushes so maybe I will have a look at the palettes too! x

  4. I was actually thinking about buying that exact palette in November or December as well, but I kind of forgot about it, but I'll definitely need to get this asap! Most of the shades look so pretty! Warm notes will probably will be my fav of all of them!
    Oh and btw, you're not alone - I also can't have enough eyeshadows even though I nearly always end up using the same ones :D
