Zoeva ‘En Taupe’ Eye Shadow Palette

For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you’ll have noticed that I have a bit of an obsession with these Zoeva eye shadow palettes.

I started off with one, then I just had to have the whole set as they were so affordable…oops! I thought they were done, but then another one came out! How can you have an incomplete set?! This OCD is a problem 🙂

So here is the latest in the collection, Zoeva’s ‘En Taupe’ Eye shadow palette:

Packaging: As with all the others in the set, this comes in a sleek cardboard packaging with an identical sleeve, weighing in only at 1.5g which makes it great for travel and doesn’t take up too much storage space.

I love the design of this one – a mixture of taupe shades with a cool line design that throws off gorgeous metallic colours when it hits the light.

Shades: Ten beautiful shades, all creamy in texture and super soft and buttery to the touch. There are 4 matte shades and 6 shimmery shades. Let’s take a look in more detail shall we?

Top Row, Left to Right:

  • Stitch By Stitch: A basic matte white that’s great for the base, inner corner or brow highlight.
  • Handmade: A stunning shimmery golden shade that’s perfect for adding some sparkle to the lid.
  • Gallery: A smoky matte medium taupe shade that’s great for both the base or as a transition shade.
  • Hour By Hour: A beautiful matte dusty pink shade. So pretty as a base and transition shade too.
  • Old Master: A subtle grey that’s perfect for a soft smoky eye.

Bottom Row, Left to Right:

  • Spun Pearl: A super shimmery pearl shade that makes a great highlight.
  • Sheers & Voiles: Another shimmery shade in a soft light grey.
  • Outline: An intense metallic purple-taupe shade that’s perfect for the outer corner.
  • Wrapped in Silk: A deeper version of Sheers & Voiles – a pretty metallic dark grey.
  • Exquisite: A matte deep purple shade that’s one of my favourites.

Formula: All shades are soft and silky however I was a bit disappointed with the high amount of fall out. Also, not all shades are very intense, however these can easily be built up.

Cost: Like all the others in the set, these retail at only €17.50.

Verdict: I really like this, however I would have preferred less fall out. That being said, I found the shades to be rather unique and just love the colour combinations that can be made with this.

  1. OH MY GOSH! I’m in LOVE!
    I’m so torn… this one of the Cocoa one? I’m thinking for my first Zoeva palette, I should do the Cocoa one…
    I do my eye makeup first before my face makeup so fall out isn’t as much of an issue for me.

    • Ahh glad you like it! When are you doing your Zoeva haul! ! :p 😉 yea that’s a good idea better that way for fall out. Both are gorgeous but the cocoa blend palette has better colour payoff but they’re also completely different! Let me know what you go for 🙂
