I absolutely love ZOEVA. The brand creates the most amazing quality make up that is super affordable. This particular palette has been given a lot of love recently, and I’m so happy to add to the love in this blog post.
I have the worlds best brother who got me this ZOEVA Caramel Melange eye shadow palette for Christmas! It was £17.50 and he ordered it straight from the ZOEVA website. I normally buy all ZOEVA products from Beauty Bay – but they only currently sell this palette on their own website!.
I fell in love with this palette instantly when I saw the caramel/butterscotch/gem like shades. This is the first ZOEVA palette I’ve had which has also got names for all its shades too which is super cute. My other palette is the amazing Nude Spectrum eye shadow palette which you can read about HERE. The nude spectrum palette is also amazing with nude/pink and rose gold shades that are absolutely gorgeous!
One of my favourite things about this palette is the packaging. The fact that its metallic gold and pulls out of an encased sleeve like a bar of chocolate caramel is just EVERYTHING. Then you open it up and reveal 10 beautiful shades. These include 6 mattes and 4 shimmer eye shadows. I wear this palette most days so get the most use out of the matte shades, however the top two shimmer shades (182 degrees and Liquid centre) are just beautiful – perfect for special occasions.
The best thing about ZOEVA shadows is that they are super pigmented. The colour in the palette is literally the colour you will apply to your eyelids, and it wont budge until you decide to remove it!
I tend to apply the matte shades with a real techniques eye shadow fluffy brush and smudging brush. When it comes to the shimmer shades I use a dense flat brush or my finger to press the shadow on and build it up. The shimmer shades also are amazing if you wet your brush first, they create the most gorgeous bronzed goddess metallic make up look.
I think these shades suit any eye colour and really make your make up pop! I love to pair a smoky caramel eye with a nude lip like Charlotte Tilbury Kim KW – read HERE. The case is also really handy as it has a magnetic close. This is perfect for travelling as your make up won’t get damaged. The case is also really robust so if your clumsy like me and it drops on the floor – you will be fine its disaster proof!
When ZOEVA brought out this palette they also brought out 2 others – Cocoa Blend (more chocolate and deep pink and purple tones) and Blanc Fusion (white chocolate, champagne and honey tones). I obviously also would love to have both of these palettes too as they really are amazing quality! – My birthday is in March so I’ll add them to my wish list!
Out of the three I think that the Caramel Melange palette can create looks for every occasion and season. These shades allow you to create day to night looks really easily, and also allow you to experiment with a smokey eye. I would definitely recommend to all make up lovers, and anyone who wants a high end palette for less than £20. Its also a great way to discover ZOEVA if you haven’t had any of their products before!
Have you got this palette already? Let me know what you think in the comments below, on Twitter or on my Instagram. Its one of my 2017 blog goals to improve my Instagram so let me know how I’m getting on and whether you like my current theme!
Lots of love,
