The amazing Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette

This is a relatively recent purchase which now contributes to by everyday make-up! It’s the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette, and OH MY isn’t it gorgeous? There are so many reasons to love this palette! The beautiful burnt oranges, the creamy texture – but first of all, I feel we should start with the packaging! It’s sturdy with a bit of weight to it, but not too heavy, and is a beautiful gold colour. It’s very simple which is my favourite kind of packaging. It’s also not too large so perfect for travelling.

There are 10 shades in the palette and I think all of them are uniquely gorgeous! As I said before the consistency is ultra creamy. They are so nice to apply and a little really does go a long way. Each shade is SO pigmented, even the white! I was very impressed by the pigmentation in the glitter shades. I adore wearing these because of the real pop they give to the eye! The gold glitter shade is such an eye brightener! I’m definitely a burnt orange kinda gal so you can see the brush marks from where I’ve used those shades! I think the palette by itself creates some beautiful looks and the shades work stunningly when teamed up with other palettes too. For someone just getting in to eyeshadows (like me) I think this is the perfect starting palette. It’s so versatile!

Cocoa Blend retails for £17.50 which is a complete bargain for the absolutely beautiful shades that you get inside! I would 100% recommend it to anyone – I’ve even got my mum hooked!
