There are constantly new eyeshadow palettes coming out in the market, not many of them have been catching my attention lately. I find some of the new palettes either too repetitive, or lack of matte shades (or too many, such as all the matte palette that came out this year).
When this Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette* came out from ZOEVA, I was like 'thank god finally an eyeshadow palette I felt like essential again'! The palette contains 10 eyeshadows and 4 of them are matte shades. A lot of other palettes have similar amount of matte shades, but when one has a matte beige (for brow bone highlight), two different darkness matte brown, a dark grey or black, then that's what I would call versatile! You could create so many looks with just one palette without reaching for another palette or single eyeshadows, with the help of these four matte shades. The palette filled up with mainly warm shades which are super in trend at the moment, along with a few cool toned shades to mix it up a little bit.
Here are the swatches on my arm (without primer):

Bitter Start, Warm Notes, Subtle Blend, Pure Ganache, Substitue For Love, Freshly Toasted and Infusion are such gorgeous colours that are must have colours in any person's eyeshadow collection. The colours are super smooth and pigmented even without a primer underneath it when I was swatching. They're super long lasting on eyelids too with a layer of primer underneath (I just ALWAYS prime my eyelids, everyone should too).
