I’d say that applying eyeshadow is my favorite part of my makeup routine, which is probably why I’m such an eyeshadow palette collector. This Zoeva Cocoa Blends palette is the latest addition to my collection and I’m so in love with it. This palette has been on my wish list for around a year now, but I was never able to get my hands on it until recently. Although I think this is the perfect eyeshadow palette for Fall, I haven’t been able to put it down since it arrived on my doorstep this March. The selection of colors in this Zoeva palette are really diverse. There are a wonderful mix cooler colors and rich warm ones which make this palette really versatile for many different looks, skin tones, and preferences. The formula of these shadows is also really great. Both shimmer and matte shades are very pigmented, creamy and bendable and I’ve even been reaching for these over my Mac eyeshadows recently. So far my favorite color has definitely been the bronze shade, Subtle Blend, which I love blending all over the lid with my Zoeva luxe soft definer brush. This gives beautiful definition to the eyes in one effortless step. If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll sometimes blend in a bit of Substitute for Love, the warm light brown, in the outer crease and Beans are White, the dark black-brown, in the deep crease and along the lash line with the Zoeva luxe petite crease brush.

Another combination I have been enjoying is Sweeter End, a champagne lavender shade, all over the lid with Delicate Acidity, a cool purple grey tone, in the crease.
Overall, I have really been enjoying these high quality and affordable eyeshadows. The beautiful rich tones have quickly been promoted to one of my most reached for palettes. Now I’m excited to expand my Zoeva eyeshadow collections in the future!
