Trying Zoeva for the first time



Zoeva, now where do I start! Let's begin with taking a few moments to look at how utterly beautiful this brand is.

It takes a lot for me not to find a fault in something so today my lovely readers you're going to have a slight shock to the system.

The Zoeva Plaisir eyeshadow box contains three palettes in light, medium and dark selections.

Blanc Fusion - Bright and innocent pigments.

The first eyeshadow palette in the three part collection would be the lightest in the box. The top line has shimmery tones with the bottom line having matte shades.

I've only used this one once so far but they all blend and work well together. The pigmentation wasn't as strong as I had hoped for but they definitely created a lovely natural look.


Caramel Melange - Smooth caramel shades.

As soon as I opened this palette all I could think of was autumn and warm winter shades. This palette came at the perfect time and I honestly think I'm in love. I mean how could I not be? The warm reds, oranges and browns are everything I want to be using right now and I could not be more happy I found these.







Cocoa Blend - With superb ingredients.

I'm not quite so sure on the tag line they gave for this one but let's just roll with it shall we. I expected this final palette to be showing more deeper shades allowing me to create an intense smokey eye look. Instead I found it just gave me similar ones to the previous two palettes with an extra two dark browns in the mix.

Although it wasn't what I was quite expecting I have come to love this little palette and used it most out of all three.

Have you tried any Zoeva products before? I would love to hear your experience with the brand in the comments below.

Until next time.

  2. It's crazy that Chloe says she hasn't tried Zoeva before too! I've never heard of this brand until this very moment. I'll have to look more into it and see how I can get it here in California. Amazing photos btw! I'll have to come back to see more recommendations from your blog ;) xo, R

    1. Thank you photographing my photos has never been my strong point so that's lovely to hear!
      Yes it really is a great brand, definitely worth seeing if you can't get it over in California (:

  3. Thank you for this post -- I'd actually never heard of Zoeva until reading it! You get endless variety with eyeshadow palettes like these. And the colors in these palettes are amazing. I've got a soft spot in my heart for shimmery browns and caramels, so I'd definitely go with that one. I've just never mastered the art of using brighter colors!

    1. Shimmery browns and caramels really do seem to be on trend right now don't they!
      Me either with the brighter colours, it takes a lot more skill to make the brighter colours work!

  8. Ahh, I didn't know Zoeva do boxes like this! I'll have to give it a go. I've never tried them but I always hear great things about it. And that Caramel one looks beautiful.
    One thing I always enjoy about your posts is that you're very honest. If you don't like something or you don't feel like it's that great - you'll say it. I can trust what you say about something. :)
    I'd love to hear what you think about the brushes!
    Great post as usual xx

    1. Yeah it's a shame on the last one being so similar to the first two, none the less though like you said. At least two were really pretty!

    1. The second palette would be great to use if you're just getting back into it! I always go through stages as well where I don't always use eyeshadow!

  17. I would absolutely love to see a review of the brush set - I’ve been debating over buying a set for just about forever, and keep persuading myself not! The palettes are absolutely gorgeous though, some really pretty shades, especially for this time of year..
