Yes.. I caved! And I will happily hold my hands up and say how excited I was to see that Zoe had brought out a brand new make up range with Colour pop! And I know I'm super late in getting this post up, but I've been taking the time to really test the palette and try out new looks with it before I post my thoughts.
As much as I love the Zoella skincare ranges, I was so excited to see Zoe bring out Make up as I'm definitely more into my make up rather than skincare - especially when it's a collab with Colourpop! I actually brought the Brunch Date palette the moment it launched and I especially like how prepared both sides were to ensure that nothing sold out straight away which is what I expected.
For £18, the palette is a firm favourite on my dressing table already as the shadows themselves are wonderfully pigmented. I particularly go for neutral and warm tones in any make up products I use for the most part so this was perfect for me - even the blue is so useable just to add a pop of colour.
The shadows themselves as I said are amazing in terms of pigment - the shimmers especially are so intense! The mattes too are so easy to blend so you really can do any type of look with the Brunch Date palette; smokey eye, spotlight, halo.. it's so lightweight too so it's perfect for if you're travelling or chucking in your handbag. For me personally it's multiuse with Americano being perfectly ashy for my brows too and each of the shades make for an intense eyeliner across the lash lines using a damp liner brush - so it really is great for an all rounder.
My only thing missing from the palette for me personally is a really dark shade that is matte, there is Americano as a dark ashy tone along with French Toast, a deep burgundy shade but I would prefer Extra Slice with no shimmer to create a really deep smokey eye or depth to a halo eye. As much as some people have disliked it, I would keep the Brunch Club blue shade to add pops of colour. It was also concerning to see so many people receive the palette damaged but I was lucky and was able to use mine the minute it arrived.
I've created a couple of looks over on my MUA Instagram (sarahjackmua) for more looks, but below are a couple of close ups of the palette and a simple every day look which I've been loving!
