The Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette

The Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette has been in my makeup chest for a while now and I really haven't had a chance to have a proper play with it! There's a gorgeous range of shades in this palette as well as a great mixture of mattes and shimmers. I often use the two red/neutral shades on the bottom row for my crease on a daily basis as it creates a lovely naturally defined crease. The lightest shade is also great as a base as its not super pigmented but covers the whole eye-lid really well!

Top Row Swatches (Left to Right): Bitter Start, Sweeter End, Warm Notes, Subtle Blend, Beans are White. 

Bottom Row Swatches (Left to Right): Pure Ganache, Substitute For Love, Freshly Toasted, Infusion, Delicate Acidity. 

Face: Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation in Soft Beige, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, MUA Hydro Face Powder, The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzing Powder.

Brows: Collection Eye-Brow Kit in Blonde, The BodyShop Clear Mascara and Brow Gel.

Eyes: Bitter Start (All Over Lid), Substitute for Love (In Crease), Pure Ganache (In Center), Freshly Toasted (Outer V) Rimmel Super Curler Mascara.

Lips: Nivea Fruity Shine in Watermelon. 

I love how this look turned out but there really is loads of possibilities with this palette! There's some great smokey shades as well as a range of browns so there really is something for everyone. I'm really looking forward to playing around with some of the darker shades for winter as I think they will look great on days that I choose not to wear eyeliner. Let me know if you have this palette and if there's any shade combinations you love!
