I’m going to come right out and say this, but I think Zoeva is going to be the next big blogger buzz brand. It’s one I’ve been hearing rumblings of for some time, but this palette is the first of a few bits I’ve been playing with. On first look, I knew I would love it. On trying I new I loved it. The quality, shades and price all combine in a perfect storm of make-up awesomeness. But enough waffle about it… take a look and let me know what you think of the Zoeva Naturally Yours Palette.
Firstly, the packaging is simple but lovely. It’s card, so very lightweight. It doesn’t have a mirror – which in some ways can be seen as a good thing (lighter/more portable/keeps price down) or not as helpful (if you like to use the palette mirror as your on the go mirror). Personally, I’m in camp one for this and think it’s a good thing – the few and far between times I do use the mirror in a palette to apply definitely don’t make it an essential.
Then, the main event are the shade selections – quite a range with a total of 10 shades varied from shimmer to matte and light to dark. There’s a bit of a mix of warm and cool in there too so really something for all if you like your neutral palettes. A couple of the shades that look pretty on first glance really come to life when swatched – with blends of shades that pop out more when applied. Smooth Harmony in particular is a really unique shade – part dusky lilac, part subtle champagne shimmer. It’s gorgeous. Forever Yours also has that cool duo-chrome type sheen to it that makes it special. I also really like the richness of Sweet Sound.
Overall, if you love your neutrals then you will no doubt love this – there are some great staples in there, plus some unique shades that are interesting but still easy to wear. The best bit – the palette is 17.50 euros (around £12/13 ish) so an absolute bargain. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, but you will no doubt fill quite a shopping bag with gorgeous bits from the Zoeva site on having a look – next on my list… the rose gold brushes. Gorgeous.
