Zoeva Basic Moment Collection (+ Swatches)

Zoeva are bringing out some incredible collections at the moment and I have been loving them all! A little while ago they launched the gorgeous Sweet Glamour collection, packed full of pastel shades fit for any unicorn lover and the Basic Moment collection consists of two palettes everybody needs in their makeup collection.

Just like the Sweet Glamour Collection, the Basic Moment Collection is made up of two palettes. A gorgeous ten pan eyeshadow palette as well as a three pan cheek palette that includes a bronzer, blush and highlighter. This is a classic and essential collection as it is shades what everyone will use and love but I never had them all in one place so I love that I now have these two palettes. Like all Zoeva palettes, they come in pretty sturdy cardboard packaging, each of the palettes has a pretty, nude ombre colour theme which continues inside the palette as well.

The Basic Moment Blush Palette is a thing of beauty and includes three gorgeous shades for the face and all of them work so well together. Inside the palette is a universally flattering peach blush, a champagne illuminating highlighter as well as a slightly warm-toned bronzer. I really like the blush shade in this palette, it works so well with my lighter skin tone and has a brightening effect to the cheeks. I have been wearing this blush a lot with the highlighter from the palette, the highlighter adds a glow within highlight to the cheekbones as it isn't glittery or shimmery. The bronzer is a touch too dark for me to use at the moment as I am very fair but I have been using it as an eyeshadow in the crease instead! 

The Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette is an essential palette for every makeup collection and it has a mixture of cool and warm toned eyeshadows, it has more of the warmer tones which I love as they look the best on me. It has a great mixture of matte, satin and metallic shades that you can create so many different looks with. The shade range is great too as you have a selection of beige, grey tones and golds in the palette, of course, I am obsessed with the gold shades as they are pretty much all I wear! Because of the way the palette has been set out, it also helps give you an idea of shades to use together. One of my favourite combinations for when I am in a rush is using Unfinished on the lid with a mixture of Never Ending and New Era in the crease finished with Make it Last as a brow bone highlight.  

Both of these palettes have a mixture of finishes and have great pigmentation. They have each been formulated and enriched with Vitamin E and are 100% free from parabens, mineral oils, perfumes and phthalates while being made in Italy. Each of the palettes has such soft powder shades that are so buttery to the touch and apply so easily to the eyes add cheeks they do all the work for you and only need a quick blend and you are good to go! You really can't beat Zoeva palettes! I do find both palette's shades to be long-lasting once applied, I only have noticed that the cheek highlight will need a reapplication towards early evening. Even without eyeshadow primer, the shades last so well and don't fade at all on me. 

The Basic Moment Collection launches on the 15th of May 2017 - HERE.
