Zoeva Caramel Melange Eyeshadow Palette Review Swatches

The Zoeva Caramel Melange Eyeshadow Palette, AKA How I’m Curing My Post-Vacation Blues

The Zoeva Caramel Melange Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50)

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.

img_4411_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

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! 😉

    What a stunning palette and you have no idea how much I want to add this into my collection. I just love very warm eyeshadows and these are just that. I only wish Zoeva isn’t that expensive after currency exchange. 🙁

    The gradient on the lids looks so pretty! I am not big into palettes, but I own Zoeva brushes that I love.

    I just also reviewed this palette and the Blanc Fusion, they’re so pretty! I’m a big fan of Zoeva eyeshadows, they’re great quality and even better that they’re not too expensive.
    Beautiful matte look you created, Carol!

    What a beautiful palette!!! I wish I could pull off the warm tones like that, whenever I try some it makes me look so tired. I should try to find a way to make them more wearable.

    Ah, I don’t think anyone could blame you for having a little pick-me-up splurge after returning from a holiday! This palette really does look SO gorgeous; the warm shades are actually super appealing and I’m full on swooning over 182oC haha 😉

    The quality of the shadows look really great, but with a bright red and more red-based shades, the color selection is not for me. I just can’t pull off red-toned shadows, which makes skipping basically all the new popular eyeshadow palettes released this year pretty easy, lol!

    My goodness, I think this is the most beautiful palette I’ve ever seen! All of the shades look so pigmented and buttery in your swatches! An ‘all warm’ palette is my literal dream. Then the fact that it has both mattes and shimmers is amazing. Oh and can we just talk about the palette and shade names for a second… I literally love everything about this palette!!!! I was thinking to put it on my Christmas wish-list, but I kind of need it now! You look stunning as well Carol! You always pull off warm tones so beautifully.:D xx

    Being a sucker for warm shadows this palette is absolutely gorgeous and it reminds me so much of the Morphe 35O palette! xo

    I love the look of this palette, I have to Zoeva Cocoa blend palette and I do love the formula of those shadows.
