Found it! I could not find box number ten, until it was suggested to me that it might be hidden underneath another box. And there it was, underneath box number 25!
So, after the initial excitement that I had received a palette, I discovered that it was a highlighter palette. Meh!

First Impressions: The colours remind me of the Huda Beauty ‘Winter Solstice’ highlighter palette we received in the Glossybox Advent Calendar two years ago. That remains barely used. There’s something about these bright colours that puts me off. It appears to be a palette which wants to be all things to all people. Unless I use the shades as eyeshadows, I doubt I would get any use out of the darker two.
Upon further investigation, this Zoeva palette was released two years ago and is no longer on the Zoeva website. Beauty Bay and Debenhams have it on sale. So is this just a filler product? I would have thought the Advent Calendar would be reserved for products which are new to the market, requiring promotion. I am a tad confused. This palette will now remain unswatched, destined to end up in a future giveaway.
