The Zoeva Caramel Melange Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50)
The Zoeva Caramel Melange Eyeshadow Palette comes in very slim cardboard packaging
If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, why don’t you start now?), you may have seen that I spent the last few days in Madrid. I’m not one to miss anything from home when traveling, but this time around there was one thing I actually did miss: the drool-inducingly gorgeous Zoeva Caramel Melange Eyeshadow Palette.
I don’t really like spending much time on my makeup while traveling, so the only shadow I brought along was the Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in 002 Millionaire, but I have to admit that I couldn’t wait to be reunited with the beautiful warm tones in the Caramel Melange palette.
The color selection is a dream come true and the quality of the shadows is outstanding: they’re pigmented, easy to blend and very long-lasting. Like I said about my beloved Zoeva Cocoa Blend, I honestly don’t think you can find a better palette at this price point.
Swatches of the Zoeva Caramel Melange Eyeshadow Palette. L – R: Wax Paper, Universal Delight, Aftertaste, 182°C, Liquid Center, Alchemy, Start Soft, Finish Sensual, Almost Burnt, Edible Gem
To create today’s all-matte eye look, I’ve started by blending Aftertaste along the upper lashline and upwards, and Universal Delight in the crease. Then I’ve applied a mix of Alchemy and Start Soft along the lower lashline, and finished off the look with a bit of Wax Paper on the brow bone and inner corner
On the lips I’m wearing the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 107
As you can see in the swatch picture, most shades pull VERY warm, so they might not be for everyone, but I personally LOVE them. In order to get over my current post-vacation blues, I’m definitely going to spend the next few days playing with the Zoeva Caramel Melange palette – and possibly eating a whole box of butterscotch squares…
You know what they say, desperate times call for desperate measures! 😉
