How are you all? I’ve had a great few days. I’ve been offered a new job as a Beauty Specialist at Boots this week & I’m really excited to start. It’s going to be amazing to talk about and play with makeup every day. I am sad to leave my old job though, but hopefully this is going to be perfect for me (I think it will be!)
Today I am going to be reviewing the Zoeva Rose Golden eyeshadow palette which I’ve had since Christmas! You may remember me reviewing the Zoeva En Taupe palette a couple months ago (you can see that here if not) & I have also reviewed the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette too (which you can see here). So I decided I may as well review the other Zoeva palette in my collection in case anyone is interested.
This palette consists of 10 shades – 3 matte & 7 metallic. It costs £18 on Cult Beauty. I think this price is pretty decent for the quality of Zoeva.
Cult Beauty say this palette has an ‘array of stunning, stand out hues’ including ‘delicate pinks’ and ‘shimmering cocoa and brown-black shades’. Allowing you to create a number of ‘stunning floral eye looks’. They say that these formulas ‘blend together like a dream.’
It is free from parabens and mineral oil and will provide ‘incredibly rich colour payoff’.
Of course, I love the standard of this palette. The formula is amazing, and super blendable (as Cult Beauty suggest). They are super soft & finely milled, so they feel creamy & smooth on the lid. They do fade a little throughout the day & I’d recommend using a setting spray with the metallic shades in order to get them to last to their full potential.
As with the En Taupe palette, the variety of the shade range / finishes could be better. There isn’t a cream matte shade to set my lid which I definitely look for in a palette, and I would have liked to see a couple more matte shadows in general within the palette. Therefore, I don’t use this palette on its own all that often. I like to use mattes from another palette.
The shades that are in the palette though are really stunning. I particularly love the pink tones such as ‘Reflective Elegance’ (which looks more orange in the pan), and ‘Just a Rose’. I like that there is a deep shade, ‘Wonder Full’ in there too, to add definition to a look.
Firstly, congratulations on your new job! That’s so exciting and sounds like a really fun role.
This palette is beautiful. I don’t actually own any Zoeva products but I’ve heard great things about them. The ‘Just a Rose’ shade is so, so beautiful. These neutral shades are my absolute favourites, and I do like a bit of shimmer, so this sounds right up my alley!
Also your photos are beautiful 🙂
Thanks so much! & ahh zoeva is such a great brand from my experience, I’d definitely recommend trying something out. Xx
Congrats on your new job! I hope it’s a great fit. 🙂 Also, great post! I love all of these shades and think they look lovely. I would definitely try. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much! This is a lovely palette x
I wanted to try Zoeva eyeshadows for such a long time. I use their brushes in my daily makeup routine and I can’t imagine doing my makeup without them. This palette looks so stunning and it would be perfect palette for me, I really like these shades. Congratulations on your new job, it sounds amazing. xx
I haven’t tried many of their brushes & I definitely want some more! Thanks xxx
Congratulations on your new job! You’re going to smash it. I love the look of this palette, although I do wish it had more matte shades as well as metallic. I’m sure the quality makes up for it though!
Thank you! & yeah I’d like more mattes too, but as you say the quality is really great x
I am obsessed with the cocoa blend palette – zoeva is one of my fave eyeshadow brands. I also have their eyeshadow brushes and I really recommend them ☺️ I’ve been eyeing up this palette for years and I think I need to invest in it. Congrats on your new job xxx
You should definitely pick this palette up! It’s such amazing quality. I’ll give their brushes a better try I think. Thanks so much xxx
