NEW IN: ZOEVA ROSE GOLDEN BLUSH PALETTE REVIEW WITH SWATCHES

If there's ever any need for extra radiance to your complexion, it is on Monday morning. Being woken up rudely by an alarm clock is one of the worst feelings in the world, if you ask me. Today I'm bringing you my new favourite, a little palette by mighty Zoeva, proven to brighten up your mornings :)




Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette comes in a sleek, cardboard packaging. It's rose gold hue is so on point with the whole world going crazy for copper and rose gold. It's a lovely addition to already large collection of brushes with rose gold detailing. It's light, small and travel friendly. 

Palette includes a contour, blush and highlight shades. This triad works perfectly for both contouring and strobing trends. For a chiseled look work all shades onto your cheeks. Formula is infused with Vitamin E, which nourishes the skin as well as giving your complexion a visible radiance boost thanks to the shades. Very lightweight powders, however not as creamy to touch as we are used to with Zoeva eyeshadows. They are very easy to apply and blend and offer great pigmentation. It's quite unusual selection of shades with contour definitely aimed at paler skin tones and both blush and highlighter incredibly pigmented and working for both pale and darker complexions.




Heavy Crown is a muted chocolate shade, neutral tone and a matte finish. It's not as pigmented as the rest of shades which works great for pale skin tones. It gives a beautiful finish on the skin, slightly bronzing and contouring at the same time. You will not hurt yourself with this powder, it goes on the skin smoothly and doesn't leave any streaks, which are quite common with super pigmented contour shades. I wasn't too sure I'm going to like it at first but it looks beautiful on my skin, giving enough colour, but without being to overpowering. It has a great staying power. 

Glowing Still is the most unusual highlight shade I've ever come across and I've tested a lot of highlighters. It looks white in the pan, swatches white at first too, but once blended it's super pigmented yellow gold highlight. Light hand during application is a must as this is very well pigmented highlight. For me it works better for evening looks as it can be too 'in your face' during daytime on someone as pale as me. I love it nevertheless, it's gorgeous and stays put for 10 hours plus.

Palace Door is another shocker, as again it looks totally different in the pan than on the skin. It's hard to describe really. It's a medium pink peach with warm undertones and rose gold sheen. I'm normally against shimmery blushers but OMG this one works somehow. It creates a beautiful sheen to the cheeks without being to overpowering. It compliments both contour and highlight shade. I love it !! As with highlight, it's super pigmented so light hand is needed when applying. Again, very long lasting, it will stay on your cheeks for up to 10 hours - amazing !!

OVERVIEW:
I was very sceptical at first, due to feeling a bit cheated when it came to shades as they swatch and apply totally different to the wa the look in the palette. For some reason these shades just work. It makes me giggle a little as they're the opposite to what I usually enjoy. I like my contour to be super pigmented - yet Heavy Crown works beautifully on me. I love my matte blushes, yet Palace Door took me by complete surprise and I absolutely love it despite its sheen finish. I love my highlighter to stand out and don't get me wrong this one does but it's such an unusual shade I still can't comprehend why I love it so much. I really can't say anything bad about this palette. It's sleek and travel friendly, I love the rose gold packaging and the shades are incredible. They work, that is all :)

Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette retails for £13.00 and it's available now on Beauty Bay

  3. Aww I love it but I really don't need more blushes or highlighters. :( The contour looks very light for my skin tone so it might make it easier to skip it.
