I have being loving Zoeva products at the moment, you may have already seen my review of the Mixed Metals Palette and of a couple of the Makeup Brushes and you'll know how much I love them. I was very excited to give this blush a try as blushes are one of my favourite make up products and this shade is exactly what I have been searching for!
This blush is in the shade Shy Beauty which is a gorgeous peach shade with a tiny hit of brown to it which a mate finish. I love to a peach toned blush if I am going to wear a intense lip colour or a dramatic eye because otherwise I feel like there is too much going on with my face. The packaging is very strong so if you are going to keep this in your makeup bag your not going to have any issues with it breaking, I don't think. Once opened it reveals the gorgeous blush shade and a decent sized mirror. Imprinted into the blush is Colour.Love.Makeup. - I love the little touches.
This blush shade is going to look gorgeous on many different skin tones, especially paler skin tones. I have very pale skin and I love how this looks on my cheeks. I was very surprised with how pigmented this blush is, you are definitely going to need a light hand when you apply this one. I have been using a slightly fluffier brush to apply it to my cheeks and I love the way it looks and I think it might have just become my new favourite everyday blush.
This blush is velvety soft and applies like a dream. If you want a sheerer wash of colour you can definitely achieve that as it blends out so easily. It is a very long lasting blush too, once applied in the morning it lasts all day and I don't even need to reapply. If this isn't a shade you would normally go for there is also another five shades in the range so there is bound to be one that you'll like. I have my eyes on Gentle Touch and Last Love next!
The Zoeva Blush in Shy Beauty retails for £6.50 and is available from the Zoeva Website as well as Beauty Bay.
