From all the Zoeva palettes that I own, the Cocoa Blend is my absolute favorite. Such a beauty! A pretty box of chocolate eyeshadows. The packaging is really elegant very much down my chocolate addiction lane. I only know one girl in my circle that doesn't like chocolate because she is allergic to it. Besides her, who doesn't love chocolate?
All the colors are velvety smooth, they very from metallic to matt. All except for one have great pigmentation. Have a closer look at the swatches and the three looks I've created. The third was on my friend Caroline: Make Up for Darker Skin Tones. There you can see that this eyeshadow palette is a great match for all skin tones. I did have to deepen her crease with a darker eyeshadow. On her eyes I've used Warm Notes, Subtle Blend and Pure Ganache.

Full Ganache - Substitute for Love - Freshly Toasted - Infusion - Delicate Acidity
My first look consists out of Pure Ganache on the Lid and Substitute for Love in the crease and a bit of Sweeter End on the center of the lid. It is a super easy golden look that goes very well with blue eyes. Lips are MUA nr. 11.
For the second look I've used Bitter Start as a base, Substitute for Love, Freshly Toasted and Beans are white as a smoked out liner. Lips are Givenchy Rouge Interdit 14 Fruity Orange.
