When I opened the Zoeva Sweet Glamour Eyeshadow Palette*, I can’t deny it. I was internally squealing over how beautiful it appeared. I know that I’m someone who is definitely a neutral eyeshadow girl. But, if you know anything about me, I am obsessed with pastel nail polishes and pastel in general. This palette looks like something that could pull me out of my everyday makeup looks, and it really excites me.
WHAT IS IT
The Zoeva Sweet Glamour Eyeshadow Palette is a 10 shade, pastel eyeshadow palette in cardboard packaging. There is no mirror included and it can be purchased directly off the Zoeva website.
I find the idea of this palette quite magical. When I received this palette in the mail, a card was attached and it read “come to the place where imagination knows no boundaries”. This note combined with my initial surprise of ‘oh my beauty’ when I opened the palette, gave me a flashback to when I was younger and imagined of things like unicorns. I was instantly hooked.
If you haven’t seen this palette yet, that’s because it’s relatively new and was only released on April the 10th on the Zoeva website. I’ve actually noticed quite a few pastel related makeup products coming out recently, so I’m assuming that it’s going to be one of the makeup trends for this year.

Childhood Adaption | With Fulfilment | Artistic Creation | Profusion | Spirits Held Desire
WHAT ARE MY THOUGHTS
The shade selection is obviously insane and allows for a lot of creativity. I’m especially excited by the three purple shades of Object to Subject, Daydream and Spirits Held Desire.
Now, onto performance and pigmentation. You remember those three shades I just mentioned? Well, I was ESPECIALLY impressed with these shades. Purple is actually my favourite colour but I have never found a palette that has a purple shadow that actually performs. They usually look good in the pan but feel chalky or don’t have any pigmentation at all. That was definitely not the case here as you can see. All of the shades were very smooth and pigmented. I found that all of the shades turned up as expected, except for Phantasy Principle. It looks really rose gold in the pan, but it actually comes out quite yellow and golden.
Will I wear this for my every day makeup looks? Honestly, I probably will! If you’ve seen a lot of my posts recently, you’d know that I’ve been doing a lot of posts recently where I’m like ‘this is beautiful, but I probably can’t use it every day’. But nope, not here! I’ve been experimenting with doing a relatively Katina eyeshadow look and alternating between these different shades on various days all over the lid. I really love how they are colourful and different, yet soft in appearance.
WHO IS THIS PALETTE FOR
Anyone that loves the idea of being transported back in time to their happy unicorn dreams for sure. I’d also suggest this for MUA’s or any pastel lovers in general. Even if you don’t use it for it’s actual purpose as an eyeshadow palette, I feel like it could even be a collectable or something you could just look at in admiration because it’s that stunning.
Have you used any pastel eyeshadows before?
