When there appears an email from Zoeva in my mailbox, my heart always makes a little jump. It means that they have a new product. And this time we may welcome a new eyeshadow palette to the family. Hi there, Cocoa Blend palette!
The Cocoa Blend palette has the same size as all the palettes. I think Zoeva gets better and better with the design. I'm not really a big fan of the first, purple palettes. The previous Rose Golden palette (see review here) was pretty, and this one is pretty too! Brown with gold, simple and that works for me!
The Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette results out of a world of sweet sins. It's inspired by warm truffle colors, delicate nougat shades and shimmery marzipan tones. This palette is an ode to the woman who is a temptation herself, with a little forbidden something that makes her extra secretive and desirable. The palette contains 10 shades as tempting as a box of pralinés. Reason enough for me to bring out some Neuhaus chocolates! (See, it's for work, mom!)
The eyeshadow formula is enriched with vitamin E and is 100% free of parabens, mineral oils, perfume and phthalates.
This palette is a bit special because it has 6 (!) different finishes. There are matte, satin, metallic, duochrome, pearl and matte with glitter colors. I find this pretty amazing!
First row: left to right on the palette = top to bottom.

About the colors, they are perfectly pigmented as always. 'Sweeter End' is the only one that is less pigmented, the others just pop of my arms. Especially 'Pure Ganache' is a very special one, it feels thicker than the others and it's just pure pigment. I haven't got anything like that, so I was kind of surprised!
Zoeva - Cocoa Blend Palette (€17,50) available from June 1st on their webshop.
So yes, I am so happy with my new palette. This palette is just like a box of chocolates: there is a lot of variety! (Unless you're like me and you ask for "one box of chocolates, only white and milk please".) The colors are all very different, with 6 different finishes. I'm fan of this palette!
What do you think about this palette?
