Apologies for my lack of content recently. I was at a wedding at the weekend and just didn’t have the time to take pictures or post.. Sorry about that!
So today I’m going to do a little review of an amazing palette – the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette!
I’d seen lots of pictures of this on Instagram and decided I needed to have it. I’m not a huge eye shadow hoarder and usually stick to my tried and tests Naked Palette, but thought this would be perfect for Autumn/Winter.
As you can see it’s had a fair bit of use since I got it on my birthday (Thank you Kyle!) It’s an almost even mix of mattes and shimmers, a problem that I have with the naked palette – too many shimmers!
Sweeter End – a champagne pink colour, really nice for a natural look.
Pure Ganache – Love this! Just a simple gold.. I always put this on the inner corner
Substitute For Love – this is a definite orange/tan colour, goes so so so well with blue eyes.
Subtle Blend – I haven’t really gotten around to using this one yet, but still gorgeous!
Freshly Toasted – a beautiful crease colour, I use it with substitute for love and pure ganache for a perfect everyday look.
Infusion – is what it says, a dark black infused with gold shimmer. Amazing for a smokey eye.
Delicate Acidity – I don’t usually go for purples, but this one is actually really subtle. Paired with the matte black you can make a really nice smokey eye.
All in all, my favourite palette of all time. The pigmentation is amazing, they’re so easy to blend and what I love most is you could pair almost every colour in the palette together. I don’t use a primer and they last all day too.
My only critiques are that there’s no matte brown, but not to worry as I have a few. There’s also no mirror.. I can’t really decided if I like that or not but at only €22 for 10 shadows, you can’t really go wrong!

5 stars for this palette – you need it in your life.
