Review : Zoeva Nude Palette

This is a rather late post but "life happened" so I only had the opportunity today. *giggles*
I got this Zoeva Nude Palette from my lil sister who gave it to me for Christmas.
To be honest, I've never heard of the brand Zoeva but my sister insists that it's "all the rage" among her friends in Singapore. I decided to do a little bit of research on the brand and it turns out that Zoeva was founded in 2008 by Zoe Boikou in Germany. You can read more about Zoeve here.

A girl can never have enough nude eyeshadows or nude palettes and I'm no different. I was ecstatic over receiving another nude palette that's perfect for creating everyday looks, smokey looks & even classic bridal looks. This palette contains 28 classic neutral eyeshadows encased in a a beautiful demi-matte black case. The downside is the palette doesn't come built in with a mirror.
It has a diverse range of finishes that I feel is an awesome bonus for a palette like this. As for the pigmentation and longevity of these eyeshadows, I have to be honest... Some are great and some could use a bit of improvement. It varies from color to color but overall I'm happy with most of the eyeshadows. I remedy problematic ones by using a good eyeshadow primer or base. I've noticed that the NYX eyeshadow base (skin tone) works best with this palette.
I've used this palette for several brides already as well as clients who availed of my graduation package because a lovely neutral eye is always perfect for formal events like a graduation. I've even used this handy palette on myself when I create everyday looks.
For a complete set of swatches, check out this lady's awesome post.
Overall, I'd give this palette a 4/5. If you can get your hands on this palette, GO FOR IT! It's worth the money. *wink*


  1. I like that it has mostly matte shades. The sleek black packaging is nice, tempting even. But I still have my Naked 2 =)

  2. The shades are lovely! And the price is pretty reasonable, considering this palette has 28 shades. :)

  3. those dark colours looks vey nice!! such a nice over all pallette indeed! i guess budgetfriendly is a plus too!

  4. the black one is matte? I need a good black matte shadow ((:

  5. is the black one matte? thanks

  6. The palette looks really pretty!!! I hope to see a blog post which has a look that came from this palette! :D


  7. I was supposed to get a Zoeva makeup from Luxola during their sale but haven't really heard that much about them. Thanks for your review! Same here, i wish they put a mirror.
