This palette has fast become one of my all time favourites. The colours are interesting but at the same time very wearable, I find that I am reaching for this most days. The good thing about these eyeshadows is that they are buildable, you can use lightly for work days or build up for anevening-out, smokey eye. The shadows are very pigmented but I have noticed no fall out whilst applying these. The staying power is excellent but improved by using a primer prior to application.
The palette contains 4 matte shades and 6 shimmer shades. Freshly Toasted is a beautiful chocolate with terracotta undertones, lovely used on its own with slightly more intensity in the crease. Shades Substitute For Love and Pure Ganache compliment each other well and will be stunning in the summer months. Warm notes is very much like Mac Cranberry and is beautiful in the crease with Sweeter End washed over the lids. I have to say that I think shadows are just as good, if not better than Mac eyeshadows. Considering the fact that you are getting 10 eyeshadows for little more than what you would pay for just one Mac eyeshadow, you really are getting good value for money.
The Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette currently retails at £18 on beautybay.com. I did happen to pick this up when it was only £15 which (in my opinion) is a total bargain for the quality and pigmentation you’re getting with these eyeshadows. I know which brand I will turn to when I
need want a new eyeshadow palette!
