Zoeva Cosmetics En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette


A little while ago, I went shopping and decided to pick up the Zoeva Cosmetics En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette from the Melbourne Sephora store. I had been eyeing this one off for a while but they never had it in stock - until now.

The palette itself is actually stunning. How pretty is the design? I personally hadn't read any reviews about this palette as yet, but have had good experiences with a previous palette I purchased.

The En Taupe eyeshadow palette comes with ten gorgeous shades; five matte shades and five shimmer shades. I fell in love with the shimmer hades in particular. After swatching at home, I was a bit disappointed in the matte shades, but was pretty happy with the pigmentation of the shimmer shades. 

My favourite shades were Handmade and Outline, as they are both gorgeous shades. I also really like Wrapped in Silk as well. I think the best matte shade would have to be Old Master, which is the most pigmented.

Above swatches were three layers each, no eyeshadow primer.

As you can see, the pigmentation for the matte shades are not very strong. The shimmer shades, on the other hand, are incredibly and are my new favourites. The shimmer shades are perfect for a nice autumn/winter look, so I can't wait to experiment with them a bit more.

I'm not sure if this palette is 100% worth the Aussie pricetag, considering the matte shades aren't that great. I don't regret that I purchased it, as I can still use all the gorgeous metallic shades - I will try and use the matte shades as some of them aren't too bad.

Have you tried the Zoeva Cosmetics En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette before? If so, what are your thoughts?

  1. Looks the goods but if every shade doesn't perform - I can't consider it. Do like the look of the Zoeva Rose Gold palette though!

  3. This is a beautiful pallet! Its a pity about the matte shades, I am a huge fan of matte eye shadows so maybe this one isn't for me :/

  5. The palette itself is beautiful but matte shades are disappointing. I am thinking of trying a Zoeva palette but we do not have sephora in Canberra. I will buy it on Beauty bay and it is much cheaper there.

  6. Oh, that's a shame the pigmentation of these wasn't that amazing! I've heard great things about the Zoeva shadows, perhaps it's just this palette? I do really want to try the Cocoa blend palette though, the shades in this one are a bit too cool for me!
