Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette Review

I'm quite new to Zoeva's range of cosmetics as I have only had experience with their brushes so far but if this palette is anything to go by then I can only imagine how good Zoeva's other products are. The Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette features 10 unique and captivating eyeshadows that work to create the most beautiful of looks. It is available on Beauty Bay's website for £15.50 which I believe to be more then reasonable considering this palette beats a lot of other high-end eyeshadow palettes which I've tried.

The pigmentation of this palette went way above my expectations, I don't even think you need to use primer with this if I am 100% honest although if you did I would guarantee your eyeshadow would be beyond vibrant and would definitely make for an amazing look. As you can see from the swatches, the eyeshadows pretty much speak for themselves. I would say that the most pigmented is 'Pure Ganache' whereas the least pigmented is 'Beans Are White' but it is a colour you can build up.

I noticed also that 'Substitute For Love' is a slightly darker dupe for 'Peanut Butter' from the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette. I would advice using a base such as the MAC Paint Pot for some of the more neutral shades such as 'Bitter Start' & 'Sweeter End' colour payoff to be better. The palette claims to be easy to blend and I would agree with that, so far I have had no issue blending the eyeshadows.

I also quite like the slim style of the palette which makes it easy to carry around and not take up too much space in my bag. It is also extremely light so it is surely something you can take away with you on your travels. Compared to other palettes at a similar price, I would say it provides that little bit extra in terms of the pigmentation, blend-ability and variation.

What is your opinion is on this palette? Do you own it? What's your favourite and least-favourite shades? Do you think its worth the price? As ever I would love to know in the comments below what you think and any tips/tricks you may have!
