The company Zoeva was kind enough to send me their new “En Taupe” Eyeshadow Palette along with their new brushes for review! They came out with 6 new, beautiful brushes which are awesome quality and are all very versatile. Their beautiful, “En Taupe” Eyeshadow Palette was said to be inspired by precious fabrics found in the fashion industry which is awesome. The palette retails for 17.50 Euro (it’s a German brand, but they ship worldwide)//USD$19.32//CAD$25.39. You can purchase their palette on their online website. This palette is based on warm and cool toned taupe shades with a variety of finishes: Matte // Satin // Duochrome // Pearl // Matte with Glitter. It’s a very versatile product and it also is awesome for the season as the taupe shades are quite in at the moment! It’s neutral and wearable and also quite a unique palette.
The Formula: No parabens // No mineral oils // No fragrances // No phthalates // Superior pigmentation // Easy to blend // With vitamin E // Made in Italy
The palette itself is cardboard based and very sleek, it’s awesome for travel.
Unfortunately the palette doesn’t come with a mirror, but I can live without it.
Now for the swatches (no primer used). Top row, from left to right:
Stitch By Stitch, Handmade, Gallery, Hour By Hour, Old Master
Spun Pearl, Sheers and Voiles, Outline, Wrapped in Silk, Exquisite
As you can see from the swatches, the shadows are very pigmented and the shades are just stunning. You truly get an array of warm and cool toned taupe shades. This is my second Zoeva eye shadow palette I have tried and I have to say that this brand just kills it with their eyeshadows! I believe they began with brushes, but I’m so happy they started doing makeup as well because their eyeshadows are one of the best ones out there in my opinion. For a palette the shades are buttery, pigmented and extremely blendable. They’re soft but they don’t crumble away which is what can be quite annoying with some eyeshadows. I also reviewed their “Cocoa Blend” eyeshadow palette which is one of my all-time favorite palettes – the colors are right up my alley (warm, burnt oranges and bronzey shades) You can check that review out here if you’re more of a warm toned lover (like me). If you love cool tones than this “En Taupe” palette is for you! Even if you don’t really love cool tones, this palette has just the right amount of warmth to work for you. I really love this palette and feel that Zoeva really produces awesome quality shadows for a great price. Let me know your thoughts and if you’ve tried any of their eyeshadow palettes!
