Spring has officially sprung and I truly craved a new eyeshadow palette in my life. In today's post I am going to talk about one of Zoeva's latest palette releases called Opulence Eyeshadow Palette, as well as swatch every single shade. So, if you are interested, please keep on scrolling!
Price: 26.50 USD // 116 AED. Made in Italy.
Packaging: just like every other Zoeva palette, Opulence comes in a very slim, cardboard case. Although I do wish there was a small mirror here, to make this palette that extra bit "handy" for traveling, I must say that I do like an overall look of this new collection. It is quite dark, yet feminine at the same time. You also get 10 eyeshadow pans here, each containing 1.5 g / 0.05 oz worth of product (a very good, standard size).
Colours & Finishes: now, colour scheme - is what excites me the most about the palette. You do get only one matte shadow (quelle surprise), while other nine are merely a mix of satins, frosts and subdued metallics. I wouldn't describe these shadows as high-shine metallic, they are (what MAC would describe) "Veluxe Pearl" (aka a cross between metallic and satin). That being said, these shadows will flatter ladies of all ages, so don't shy away - these will look good on every girl (and boy). You also get a nice variety of neutrals and cool tones here, as well as an odd pop of bronze, blue or wine-red. I do wish there was at least one more matte here, say a neutral-brown transition shade. "Golden Years" is the only shadow that doesn't swatch that well, yet looks quite opaque when applied with a flat brush.
