Zoeva Cocoa-Blend Palette | Guest Post

Today I’m treating you all to a stunning palette review by the lovely Emma from Glossy-Boutique! she offers all things, beauty fashion and lifestyle. Go ahead and check her out, you’ll be lusting over this palette – I know I am!

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette | Guest PostZoeva made a name for themselves with their pretty make-up brushes but more recently they’ve been releasing make up and the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette has been on my wish list since it was first released. The only reason I didn’t buy it earlier is because I thought I’d have to buy it from the Zoeva website and pay shipping from Germany. I’m not sure why I didn’t know Beauty Bay sold Zoeva and offered free shipping! As soon as I spotted it, I added it straight to my basket and it was here within a few days.

The Cocoa Blend palette contains 10 colours at 1.5g each which works out at £1.55 per pan, an absolute bargain! The fact that the packaging looks like a chocolate bar in itself is enough to warrant this purchase and I can kinda get over the cardboard packaging and no mirror for £15.50 too. Not only am I impressed with this Zoeva palette but I can’t believe I’ve never used Beauty Bay before. They sell a wide selection of products and as I said delivery was fast and free. I feel a spree coming on!

Bitter Start
A light beige that is actually pigmented compared to other light colours I’ve tried from other brands. It’s a pretty standard beige but is semi-matte and has a lovely creamy consistency.
Sweeter End
A beautiful peach with a hint of pink and shimmer. It’s a pretty sheer colour so you need to really pack it on when applying.
Warm Notes
If you’re after a MAC Cranberry dupe then look no further and you get 9 other shades for the same price! This colour has more shimmer than Cranberry but it’s just as beautiful. You don’t need to use much of this colour either as it’s thick and really pigmented. This shade in particular has an amazing formula!
Subtle Blend
I don’t own anything like this shade, it’s a beautiful dark brown with a golden shimmer giving it a bronzed look. I love wearing this shade alone when I’m rushing around in a morning as it doesn’t need much blending either.</div>
Beans are White
This is a dark brown matte colour which is great for a crease colour. I’m not overly keen on the formula of this one as I found it hard to blend and I’ve got similar shades which I prefer much more.
Pure Ganache
I’m a sucker for gold eye shadows and this one is perfect! It has a really soft formula which I love and looks gorgeous on the lid alone or with another colour.
Substitute for Love
A mid brown colour with orange undertones and it’s mostly matte but does have a very light shimmer in pan. Again this had a very soft formula and blends well!
Freshly Toasted
This is similar formula to the previous colour but is full on matte and a darker Brown.
This colour is black with glitter embedded and really reminds me of Essence but less glittery from the Stila palette I reviewed a few weeks ago. I’m not sure I’ll use this colour much.
Delicate Acidity
A medium taupe colour with a slight plum undertone. This colour is super pretty and I love wearing it alone thanks to it’s pretty pearly sheen.


Thanks so much to Beth for letting me guest post on her beautiful blog and if you’d like to read more from me you can on Glossy-boutique.com. Just a warning I’m a bit of an enabler!
