Everybody’s got a laughing place and right now mine seems to be Beauty Bay. Who could blame me, that place is addictive.
Now you know my struggles with blush products. I just don’t really care for them too much (with the odd exception) and I’ve dealt with enough red, rosey cheek experiences to last for what feels like a lifetime. Never again!
But these palettes were a little different. It’s not often you see a blush quad that doesn’t look like something from your childhood. Remember those plastic “fake-up” palettes we all had as a kid? With that tiny little brush that was useful for only smearing the world’s stickiest lip gloss across your face?
Yeah I try to avoid anything that slightly resembles that.. Don’t we all?
Anyway, having previously tried Zoeva makeup brushes (and loving them btw) I started having a nosey at what else the Zoeva brand had to offer. Who would’ve guessed that I of all people ended up with not 1 but 2 blush palettes!
Zoeva Pink Spectrum Blush Palette
Pinks.. I love em and I hate em. With the right subtle rose tone you can feel like your most confident self as you strut about. You know wonderful feeling, wonderful day feels, or it can go the total opposite way and you look like one of the Cabbage Patch dolls. Remember those? We’re really feeling nostalgic today aren’t we?
Thankfully *this palette offers 4 shades to choose from and although I can’t honestly say I use all of them, 3 out of 4 isn’t bad.
Now the colour pay-off for these beauties are pretty intense which is great, but keep in mind that you need to tap off a bit of product before you slap that bad boy on your cheek. It could be a bit of a disaster otherwise.
Other than that, I really enjoy the product and the “blendability” (is that even a word?) is perfect.
Zoeva Coral Spectrum Blush Palette
I never would’ve clocked myself as a coral girl but hey there you go. The coral quad is *my favourite of the 2 blush palettes which is strange considering I only use 2 of the shades.
I’m not sure how that works either..
The pigment is just as fabulous as the pink offerings but I prefer the coral undertones when applied. I’d say the 2 bottom shades are best for natural, everyday wear if that’s what you are after.
I’m glad I have these in my collection and the are great products to use, but the £15 price point is something that needs a little thought before jumping in.
If I could have 2 shades from each palette, heck I’d pay £20 if I had to but otherwise I’m not sure I’d repurchase when they eventually run out.
Have you tried them? I’d love to know your thoughts.
