ZOEVA Cool Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette is one of the eyeshadow palette that I just came across recently as I was researching on a high quality makeup brand that does not have a high price tag. Some products such as this cool spectrum eyeshadow palette, is not just unique in the colour choices but also performed better than some of the higher end brand upon application on my skin.
These eyeshadows are made putting our health into considerations. They do not contain parabens, mineral oils, or fragrance, hence less chances or irritations or allergic reactions. They also do not contains phthalates and infused with vitamin E for nourishment and hydration to our skin.
The texture of these eyeshadows are more on the drier side but they do not kicked-out much powder and they are easy to apply and easy to blend. The ZOEVA Cool Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette is made in Italy with net weight of 15 x 1.5g or 15 x 0.05 Oz and costs for about AUD $75 or USD $56, available from SEPHORA or ZOEVA Cosmetic.com
Behind the brand
The brand ZOEVA is originated from Germany by an outstanding entrepreneur Zoe Boikou, that produced a humble ten variety of high quality makeup brushes in 2008 and now has grown into a global beauty brand.
Colour selection was what pique my interest on this palette. ZOEVA Cool Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette covers variety of textures in matte, shimmer and metallic finishes in an array of neutrals, purples, pink, green, silver and black.

I personally enjoyed the colour selection and the longevity of these eyeshadows applied on top of a primer is on par with the high-end brands, well over six hours on my eyelids without fading or smudging. The metallic and shimmer shades are more pigmented than the matte ones.
The packaging is quite slim and sleek, but sturdy as well as light. ZOEVA Cool Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette is perfect for weekend travel or getaways with all that you need colours included. The only down point is that there is no mirror in this palette.
Overall, judging from the price and the quality of the product, I am quite pleased with it.
