ZOEVA Matte Eyeshadow Palette

ZOEVA Matte Eyeshadow Palette

If you're an avid reader of my blog, you will have seen me rave about ZOEVA as a brand time and time again. If you somehow live under a rock (in the nicest way possible) and don't know the brand, let me just quickly tell you a little bit about them before I introduce you to one of their newest makeup releases. ZOEVA is a German based brand that focus on being innovative and modern, not to mention affordable too. They are now internationally recognised for their beautiful makeup brushes and becoming more popular for their makeup range too. For me their eyeshadow palettes in particular are some of the best I have tried, especially when you take into consideration the price. Through the brand's high quality products, you are also supporting women suffering from domestic abuse or the consequences of cancer, which is quite amazing to know. Once you get your hands on Zoeva, you can really appreciate how much detailing, care and passion goes into their products. Hence why I was so impressed with the Zoeva Matte Palette from the very first moment I got my hands on it.

I quickly introduced you to the palette in my latest post, all about an all mate makeup look, so you can see it in action there. Today however I wanted to review the palette in more detail, as I've had the chance to use it a couple more times. I also wanted to show you swatches of each shade within. Even though I have loved previous palettes from Zoeva, I was actually quite curious to see if the quality of this all matte palette would be as good. Great matte eyeshadows are definitely not easy to find especially at such budget price. Not forgetting that matte sometimes means that the shadows will dry, chalky and not the easiest to blend. However that is definitely not the case for the Zoeva Matte Eyeshadow Palette.

So as you can see the matte palette made out of a sturdy cardboard, so it feels lightweight and it's super compact too. Despite this you will find that it remains durable and sturdy. It doesn't contain a mirror, which is not a deal breaker but definitely would have been a nice added touch. It also doesn't come with a brush but I'm actually quite happy about that since I prefer using my own brush collection anyway. This particular monochrome packaging has been inspired by the late city night life, definitely makes me think of NYC. I also like that the shades are all individually named, because it makes it so much more personal. There's 10 matte shades in total, mostly warm tones with a couple of cool tones too. The formula doesn't disappoint as it's super soft, silky and highly pigmented. They don't feel dry or chalky, and literarily blend like a dream. Since I like my rich warm tones, this palette is perfect for me. However I do think that those with a preference for cool toned shades, will struggle to get much use from the palette. Let me tell you a little bit more about the shades individually...

Nighthawks - a light warm beige (probably my least favourite in the bunch).
Across The Street - a soft yellow beige.
Urban Culture - a muted warm medium brown (perfect crease blending shade).
Eerily Empty - a muted warm orange medium brown (again great as a transition shade).
Through The Window - a vibrant warm medium orange (love this so much, absolutely stunning).
Chat Late At Night: a darker reddish warm copper (this is my most favourite shade, so pretty and unique to anything else that I own).
Cheap Bar - a muted warm reddish brown.
Lonely City - a deep warm reddish plum.
Lost In Thoughts - a yellowish lighter warm brown.
Two Clocks - a deep taupe neutral brown.

Overall I absolutely adore this palette, it's great on its own if you want a more subtle look or even if you want to use bright colours whilst sticking to a more muted/matte finish. I can also imagine this would work amazingly well with any kind of shimmer shades combinations. I really can't fault Zoeva as a brand or the matte palette, it's a true beauty and for the price of £17.50 it's a total steal. I highly suggest to get your hands on it or at least check it out on the brand's website. Will you be getting your hands on this palette or do you own it already? Would love to hear your thoughts...
