Zoeva En Taupe Palette

Zoeva is a brand that I've heard a lot of good things about, the recently released En Taupe palette immediately caught my eye with its natural looking array of cooler toned shades.

The palette comes housed in study cardboard, though I would be inclined to keep its protective outer cardboard sleeve should you wish to travel with it. Inside we have 10 shadows in a good array of finishes and different depths.

The top row contains a matte cream, iridescent peach, matte mauve grey, matte tan and matte mauve grey with golden glitter. The second row contains a shimmery silver, sheer grey with pink duochrome, shimmery brown, shimmery taupe and a matte dusty mauve eggplant.

Pigment on the whole is good, there is quite a bit of powder kickup but the shadows feel quite smooth and blend ok, though the mattes are a bit dryer. I would say that these are the types of shadows that if you blend too much you lose the colour definition, which can make things look a bit muddy.

I'm pleased with the amount of possible colour combinations and overall application and wear of this given its low price point (£15.50) and do think the quality is equivalent to more mid end brands but can't say that I'm blown away.
I also bought a brush from them, the highly rated crease #221, but I'm not that jazzed about it, overall whilst I can see the merits of this palette its not made me inclined to try anymore from the brand.
