Do The Zoeva Spectrum Palettes Live Up To The Hype?

Zoeva Specturm Palettes Article by | Stephanie Merry |

 Back in January, Zoeva launched their Spectrum Palettes. Three eyeshadow palettes – nude, warm and cool each containing 15 shades. And three blush palettes – nude, coral and pink, each containing four shades. But do the Zoeva Spectrum Palettes live up to the hype surrounding this cult beauty brand?

First up is the Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette (£28.50). As the name suggest, this palette is perfect for those of us who love nude eyeshadow. With an array of 15 shades, you have everything you need in this palette. From matte and shimmery beige shadows to copper, golden tones as well as a matte black. It’s the first time in a while I’ve picked up a nude palette and thought I’d use every shade – the colours are so wearable! The quality of the shadows is also incredible. They’re intensely pigmented, super soft in texture and last throughout the day on my oily lids.

Next up is the Coral Spectrum Palette (£15). The packaging is incredibly sleek and compact with four gorgeous shades – one shimmer and three mattes. Just like the Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette, the quality of these blushers is amazing. I think the pigmentation of the swatches really speak for themselves! They apply effortlessly without much effort and last throughout the day without fading.

CR030 –  deep coral shade that has a gorgeous golden sheen to it that adds a nice glow to the skin.

CR010 – bright pink-coral matte.

CR040 – peachy-coral nude matte.

CR020 – light coral-pink matte.

All the spectrum palettes come in sleek, black packaging, making the palettes travel-friendly. Though the matte black does tend to catch fingerprints. Overall though I’m incredibly impressed with the intense pigmentation, super soft texture and long-lasting formula from these palettes. The only decision now is what Zoeva palette should I get next?

Have you tried any of the Zoeva Palettes?
