Review: Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette and 6 Makeup Looks

14:27

Hey Beauties!

Zoeva seriously impressed me with their eye shadow palette. It offers a really good quality (the best I own so far) for a very affordable price. If you're searching for good eye shadows that won't make you wallet cry, look no further.


The palette is in a cardboard packaging, which really surprised me. Brands love to flaunt their super shiny black sleek packaging, but not Zoeva. I'm not sure if this is intentional, or if it's a way of cutting down the costs. I've seen that the palette can break with travel, so be sure to carry it around in the second sleeve, which is open from the sides and allows you to put the palette in and make it a tad more secure for travel.


Design reminds me of The Great Gatsby movie for some reason. It has a nice color combination with taupe base and gold design. It closes with the magnet and you get it with a transparent foil as a protection over the eye shadows. 



In it is 10 different eye shadows, each has 1.5 grams and the palette costs 17.50€ (here). I actually got it for only 15€ and something (discounts on Douglas, thank you Kvina). 

The feel of this palette is neutral warm shades with a few pops of colors. 4 shades are matte and 6 shades are shimmery. The names are also cute and cocoa inspired.



Matte eye shadows are a bit dusty and need to be build up more. The texture is powdery and dry. That doesn't mean the quality is bad, because all eye shadows are amazingly pigmented, it's just the difference between mattes and shimmery ones. Shimmery shades are extremely pigmented and have almost creamy formula. If you use your fingers and swirl it in the palette, it feels like a cream.


Bitter Start - warm matte beige.
Sweeter End - duo-chrome warm shimmery light pink with gold sheen.
Warm Notes - warm shimmery cranberry pink red.
Subtle Blend - warm shimmery bronze brown.
Beans Are White - matte cool very dark brown.
Pure Ganache - warm shimmery yellow toned copper.
Substitute For Love - warm yellow toned light brown.
Freshly Toasted - warm matte red toned medium brown.
Infusion - cool very dark brown with big gold shimmer.
Delicate Acidity - cool shimmery brown toned purple.

Quality of these eye shadows is superb. Mattes are a bit more dusty and need to be build up because they do loose a bit of intensity with blending. Shimmery shades are insanely pigmented and if you apply them on with fingers or slightly wet brush, the shades are super intense. They are all easy to blend and buildable. On me they last the whole day and the intensity is pretty much the same, maybe slightly less vibrant. They might go a bit into the crease at the end of the day, depending on if I worked out that day or how sweaty I got. I always use Avon Ideal Flawless primer underneath my eye shadows. I also love the fact that there is very little to no fallout with these - mattes have a bit of fallout. because of the texture. 

In general I am very impressed with this eyeshadow palette, The shades are warmer and very much of my taste. The quality is amazing, as well as the price. It's the best eye shadow palette that I own (I don't have any higher end palettes yet). I highly recommend it. Now I want some more. I just wish they had more colorful palettes. I have so many neutrals and really want some good quality pops of colors. The next on my wish list are Mixed Metals and Love Is a Story.

  3. čudovita objava ! obožujem takšne objave, kjer oceniš paletko in pokažeš še kakšne looke se da naredit z njo. Najbolj všeč mi je pa cranberry, in me zanima, kaj si uporabila na ustnicah pri tem look-u.

    1. En Taupe je bolj hladna, vsaj tako se mi zdi. Zato ni ravno po mojem okusu. So pa itak vse zanimive po svoje. Cocoa Blend ima še nekaj barvitih odtenkov ja..lahko več ustvariš :D. Hvala :) <3

  6. Meni je res top paletka... Mi je pa zanimivo, da na tvojih vekah izpadejo senčke veliko manj intenzivne - a si uporabila kakšno podlago ali jih nanesla direktno na kožo? :)

    1. Uporabila sem Avon Ideal Flawless Eye Primer. Najverjetneje bo to krivda mojega fotoaparata. Na mojih fotkah vedno vse izgleda manj intenzivno kot je v real life :/.

    1. Res ima čudovit nabor odtenki. Meni so zelo všeč, ker so čisto po mojem okusu, topli :). Hvala :) <3

  8. Tvoja objava je prva, ki mi je uspela prepričat, da bi tale bila tudi zame :D. Pri drugih se mi je vedno zdela, da je preveč rdeča in vijolična, ampak na tvojih lookih mi je jasno, da je to veliko bolj podobno Too Faced Chocolate Bar. Looki so mi izjemni, res kapo dol, jaz še z mojo čokoladno paletko ne zmorem pol takih naredit :D

    1. V bistvu je sta samo vijolična in rdeči taki bolj živi. Vse ostale so pa res kar nevtralne in se lahko naredi milijon različnih lokov. Meni so itak ful všeč, ker je veliko odtenkov toplih :). Hvala :) <3 Ah kaj ne moreš. Saj si NudeTude tudi imela čudovita makeup looka. Samo je pač malo več dela, ko želiš več teh kombinacij poslikat. Jaz sem se tri tedne mazala (ker zadnje čase se ne ličim vsak dan, ni potrebe), pa je malo trajalo, da sem več kombinacij sprobala :D.
      Se veselim tvoje ocene Too Faced ;) Se mi je vedno zdela zanimiva kombinacija odtenkov. Samo cena je za zjokat :/

  10. Izgleda super :) Podoben odtenek kot je Warm Notes iščem že nekaj mesecev, ampak se mi ne zdi vredno kupiti celotne palete zaradi enega senčila. Btw, si že razmišljala, da bi naredila kanal na YT, ker vedno objavljaš tako zanimive looke? :)

    1. To je res. Potem si raje kakšen single eyeshadow naroči - Morphe Brushes, Makeup Geek.. Mogoče celo v H&M najdeš kaj podobnega :). Niti ne..sem imela dovolj snemanja na faksu (sem hodila - oz. še nisem končala- na medijske) and no thanks. Za kamero pa res nisem. Saj vem, lahko delaš video brez govora in se samo snemaš, ampak to se pa meni ne zdi zanimivo in verjetno drugim tudi ne bi bilo. Ostajam pri blogu, ampak hvala za kompliment :D.

  12. Tudi sama sem si ogledovala to paletko, pa se na koncu nisem odločila za njo, ker imam že ogromno palet in senčil s podobnimi barvami. Na koncu sem kupila En Taupe paleto in sem popolnoma zaljubljena. Načeloma nisem objektivna, ko se gre za Zoevo, ker so mi njihovi izdelki res top in cene so tudi super. :) Če še nimaš En Taupe palete, pa so ti všeč senčila s hladnimi podtoni jo moraš imeti :D Swatche pa oceno pa lahko pogledaš pri meni tudi(Kič Kafič). Ali planiraš še kupiti in oceniti še kakšne izdelke od Zoeve? Jaz sem si naročila Spectrum warm paleto in že komaj čakam, da grem po njo ;) Pa lep vikend!

    1. Jaz sem ravno obratna. Bolj za tople odtenke :). Imam v načrtu nabavit še Mixed Metals. Želim si da bi Zoeva naredila še kakšne majhne barvne palete. Te večje 35 so mi pa itak vse všeč, samo so bolj nevtralne :). Lep vikend tudi tebi ;)

    2. Jaz sem si ravno iz tega razloga vzela Warm paleto, ker neutralne ne potrebujem, modrih pa zelenih senčil ravno ne nosim, Warm pa ima največ barv, ki so mi všeč. Bomo videli kako bo ko jo dejansko poskusim. Mixed Metals pa je tudi lepa. Načeloma so vse te palete super in relativno poceni za kvaliteto. :)

    3. Warm je meni tudi všeč. Isto kot ti, so zanimivi odtenki, čeprav itak bi neutral tudi imela :D. Te majhne so res dobre cene. Sem prepričana, da bodo spet dvignili cene, ker so postale precej popularne. Isto so nardili z čopiči.

    4. Upam, da bodo vsaj cene ta starih palet ostale iste. Ta nove so pa itak že dosti dražje.
