I love a warm wearable eye palette so naturally was super excited for the arrival of the new ZOEVA Warm Spectrum palette through my door! I have the MAC Warm Neutral Palette (review here) so naturally I had to compare the two a little and I must admit at less than half the price this is a great option!
Like the MAC palette it has 15 shadows, with a mixture of mattes and shimmers. They are all creamy and opaque, very much comparable to any higher end palette. I was shocked at how beautifully even the matte shadows applied and although I did wear a primer (I always do), they were very creamy and pigmented. Packaging wise I actually probably prefer this one, it’s streamline and lightweight- I would love a mirror but the MAC palette doesn’t have one either.
I do believe that the MAC one has slightly better brown shades but I think that’s because the ZOEVA Nude Spectrum palette caters better to this, it house beautiful warm browns whereas this Warm Palette does have a few purples, aubergines, burn orange shades- all very wearable but ever so slightly more daring than brown. I actually love the more colourful shades in this palette, in reality they’re not really colourful but just a little more interesting than another medium brown shimmery shade. I do think this palette has one too many pale, skin colour/highlight shades but they are always useful!
I’ve now got my eye on the ZOEVA Nude Spectrum Palette, I don’t need another palette but I do really really want this one, I think it would make the ultimate travel eyeshadow palette.
