I picked up the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette last month when I was in Paris and I have to say, I have been heavily using it since I got home. As in, it has not left the top of my vanity this entire time as I have been using it almost every day. It is a simple neutral palette but I’ve seen it pop up so much on blogs and YouTube over the years that when I finally saw it in person, I had to pick it up. I find it to be a very well-rounded palette with lots of potential. I’ve been challenging myself to get outside the box with my makeup this year and this palette and I’ve been able to create a variety of looks with this palette.
The Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette’s packing is sleek and made up of cardboard with a magnetic closure. It’s quite thin which I think would make it excellent for travel. It includes 10 different shades which include matte, metallic and satin finishes.
The eyeshadow themselves are all lovely to use, I haven’t had issues with any of them. The matte shades blend out quite evenly and with minimal effort. The metallic and satin shades apply great with both a brush or your fingers (depending on how intense you want the pigmentation to be). I always use a primer when I apply eye shadow so I don’t really find much of a difference with regards to wear time, my eye shadow generally looks the same at night as it did freshly applied.
I really have nothing bad to say about this eye shadow palette. As I said earlier, it has not left the top of my vanity at all over the past month. I don’t even know if I can list off my favourite shades because I really do enjoy them all.

Overall, I would say it is a hit! There aren’t any shadows in the palette that I wouldn’t use and I’ve been reaching for this constantly. I’ve used every shade so far and have managed to create a variety of looks with it (but have shared my three favourites above!).
