Zoeva are probably best known for their brushes, but their makeup range is an absolute joy. I bought the Nude Spectrum palette a few months ago and have used it virtually every day since, which given the number of eye shadows I own is seriously unusual!
The Plaisir box, contains three chocolate inspired palettes – Blanc Fusion, Caramel Melange and Cocoa Blend - all packaged up in a collector's edition box. It’s very much a ‘white, milk and dark chocolate’ approach that I absolutely love – even the outer packaging reminds me of some of the prints and decorations used in fine chocolate truffles.
Each palette contains ten shadows, all with chocolate inspired shade names. Think 'Single Origin', 'Liquid Center' and 'Pure Ganache'. There are a mix of shimmer, satin, glitter and matte shadows within each palette, as well as plenty of selection across light, medium and dark shades.
Zoeva make some of the best formula eye shadows I've ever come across, so it's safe to say that these follow suit on previous palettes I've tried. They're super pigmented and only need a light touch with a brush to get a decent wash of colour. They also blend really well - they're very soft and buttery so can have a little fall out during application, but it's not a huge issue for me.
If I had to pick one favourite out of the three palettes it would probably be the Blanc Fusion (with the cream packaging) as I've become a bit obsessed with the top row shades. Visions of Gold and Late Bloomer look beautiful against blue eyes and the Single Origin shade is perfect for an every day look. That said, I think all three are great and each one offers something a little different to the next.
You can buy all of the palettes separately for £18 each, however the Plaisir is £48, so a small saving of £6 overall. It’s the sort of treat I think any beauty lover will want this Christmas. I can’t say this often enough, but YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY NUDE COLOURED EYE SHADOWS!
Zoeva is available online via Beauty Bay and Selfridges.
