Zoeva | Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette Review and SwatchesTuesday, May 17, 2016
The packaging is very similar to the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette.
Opens up like a book. This palette contains 15 eye shadows in very generous sizes.

Row 1 has two matte shades - creamy bone colour and dusty purple. Three shimmers - light pink, gold and taupey pink.
Row 2 has four shimmers - a champagne highlight shade, dusty pink, brownish taupe and greyish taupe. Only one dark brown matte shade.
Row 3 has two matte shades - light cool tone brown and black. Three shimmers - bronze, maroon and a darker bronze shade.
To be honest, I really did not like this palette as much as I imagined. It swatches super well and the shadows are all very soft. But it doesn't blend out like their Cocoa Blend palette, which is my all time favourite Zoeva palette - it is the only palette I grab when travelling! I tired to do a maroon smokey makeup look for this blog post but it turned out sooo muddy and the shadows are really hard to work with - especially the darker ones. If you only want a simple day time look, this will work fine but you do not need all the colours. Furthermore, they have so many of the same kind of shades. It gets a bit repetitive. I would say, skip this and spend your money else where as I'm sure you already have similar shades in your collection.
This is a simple look I did with the palette. I didn't do a good job so I was contemplating if I want to post it but I just want to show that this palette can achieve a simple smokey eye.
