The other week I shared some of my makeup palette collection and today as promised I’m back with a few more. Now I did say this was going to be a two part series because I don’t have that many palettes, well I’ve changed my mind and there will be a third post too. I clearly have more than I thought! That’s enough introduction for now, let’s have a look at the palettes.
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette
It took me a really long time to actually want this palette, in fact, I only got it a few months back. In my head, it didn’t seem that versatile and I wasn’t sure how much I’d use it, but boy how wrong was I. This is one the rare palettes I own where I actually use (and love) every single shade. You can just tell that this palette had a lot of thought put into it as it’s the most gorgeous curation of shades possible. Whilst initially again I thought this would be an autumn-winter palette only, I’ve loved using this in spring and I’m sure I’ll love it just as much in summer.
Zoeva Nude Spectrum Palette (Review)
The Nude Spectrum palette was the first I ever tried from Zoeva, and I have a funny feeling it was relatively new out at the time because I hadn’t heard much about it when I picked it up, and it was a last minute decision to get this one instead of the more popular Cocoa Blend. Nowadays, it’s one of Zoeva’s most coveted palettes and with good reasons! This really is the ultimate neutrals palette as it has everything you’d ever want. My only gripe is that the shadows look quite different to how they actually apply, so some shades which look light in the pan actually come off dark on the skin. So I kind of have to rely on my memory to know which shades to place where, although to be fair all the shades compliment each other nicely so you can’t go too far wrong.
Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes Palette (Review)
Normally, innovation trickles from high end to the high street, but in this case, I’m pretty sure this was the full only matte palette I could find, high end included. This was back when Makeup Revolution were more known for innovation than duping, but hey! I bought this before I was really into all matte looks, and to be honest I was a little lost and didn’t really know how to use it. Writing this post has really inspired me to give this one a go again, as nowadays a matte palette feels like more familiar territory, and the formula of these shadows is really great especially for matte shades.
Makeup Obsession Custom Palette (Review)
I was so excited by this entire concept and really enjoyed making my custom palettes, but actually, I haven’t used my eyeshadow one all that much. I think the reason is all down to the packaging, for some reason it just really annoys me. I don’t know if anyone else finds this, but the individual pans pop out all the time when I’m using it which is incredibly irritating. It’s also huge which is good in some ways (huge mirror) but in others it’s just clunky. I’m really considering swapping some of my favourite shadows into the smaller palette I own because I think I’d use it a lot more then, as I really do think the formulation is amazing.
Have you tried any of these eyeshadow palettes?
