I've always browsed through Zoeva's makeup brushes range and never took a chance to scour through their makeup line. I had recently won Angie from Chocolate and Lipstick's 1 year giveaway ( Thanks Angie) which contained a massive box of goodies. One, in particular, was this ZOEVA Naturally Yours Palette.
First impressions? Gorgeously light and elegant with a hint of chic. This neutral palette retails for EU 17.50. and consists of 10 amazingly pigmented shades that are all very earth-toned allowing this palette to work for all skintones! The palette is paraben-free and mineral oil-free. The package design is definitely an eye-catching array of light brown, flowing smoke effect. The palette comes in a sleeve which is handy for keeping palettes clean. I did find that since this palette was made out of a card-like material, the eyeshadow did stain the outside rim as shown in the image below.
ZOEVA is known for their high-quality products so I was not surprised to have their eyeshadows living up to their reputation. One swatch was already highly pigmented. The consistency also feel luxuriously soft and buttery with color to perfection and bulletproof longevity. The palette also contains a selection of matte and shimmer shadows ranging from shimmery golds, matte browns and satin nudes which is ideal for a day to night look. And how about that black shade huh! Uh-mazing. The formula contains micronized-pigments for extra dimension and bolder looks perfect for smoking out.

I cannot stress enough how much I love these eyeshadows. I will definitely be purchasing a few more palettes from ZOEVA in the near future and posting a few tutorials on how to mix and match the eyeshadows for different occasions. The only significant downfall is that their palettes do not come with a mirror. It is such a shame since the palette would have been a lot better with a mirror on the opposite side of the eyeshadows. Nevertheless, an amazing product from an amazing brand. I highly recommend!
