The Zoeva Contour & Concealer Spectrum Palettes.
For starters, this review has been in the bag since mid-August and I've been using these products pretty much every day since! So it's better late than never, right? Zoeva is hands down, my favourite 'drugstore' brand or more affordable beauty brand, if you will. When I heard they were coming out with these contour kits, I knew I would need them straight away and yup, they're pretty fab.
The black packaging with the coppery, gold detailing still makes my heart flutter, I just wish they wouldn't get so grubby! The Zoeva Concealer Spectrum Palette* was a life-saver over the summer months, I went on holiday for two weeks so this was a life saver! I could dip and dab into all the different colours to create my perfect concealer shade. These are super pigmented and medium to full in coverage so they can hide a multitude of sins. The packaging is really light and slim so perfect for travelling, I don't need to take any other concealer with me as I know everything I need is in that one palette! The variety of shades available is perfect for me, there's a white shade, a yellow shade for brightening and a salmon shade for correcting alongside the other light beige shades to choose from as well. But I find for darker skin tones there's a lack of choice with only those two bottom shades, CCO80 and CCO90 which are fab for cream contouring for me but it just isn't a good enough range I think to please everyone. Nevertheless, the formula is super creamy and they blend out really nicely.
I will say, come winter time I'll be packing this away as the formula is a little drying on the skin and my skin is damn fussy in the colder months and I can just see this creasing up all over the place already! I am super strict when it comes to products when my skin is at it's dryest and I don't think this is going to cut it. But I will be tucking it away in my palette drawer with a heavy heart as It'll just have to wait for summer to come out again.
Now for something I'm truly dying to share with you! Zoeva's powders are some of the best I have ever tried. So creamy, so pigmented, so beautiful on the skin. I knew in my heart of hearts that I was going to love this and yup, I am obsessed. The Zoeva Contour Spectrum Palette* is sooo beautiful! It contains four shades, two with velvety finishes and two matte, in that same slim and light packaging that I live for. It's perfect. I don't like contour kits that have lots of shades as I never use them all and it's just a huge waste. I use every single shade out of this palette, I use one as an all-over setting powder, one to set and highlight under my eyes, another for carving out my cheekbones and nose and the last one to warm up my skin. So if you're looking for a non-fussy contour kit that has everything you need in it, I would suggest picking this up!
