Basic Moment

Zoeva Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50 for 0.50 oz.) includes 10 eyeshadows in a neutral color scheme that leaned light to mid-tone in depth and had more neutral-to-warm undertones. The texture of the eyeshadows ran dusty to powdery, which seemed to make them shorter wearing (averaging seven to seven and a half hours) and more prone to sheering out on the lid. If you normally use primer, it would certainly go a long way to minimizing the impact of the texture and give you better coverage and longer wear.

Zoeva Basic Moment Cheek Palette ($16.80 for 0.39 oz.) includes three cheek products–a contour powder, blush, and highlighter–in a slim, cardboard palette. The powders are supposed to be “incredibly pigmented.” The highlighter was the “miss” in the palette, as it was drier in texture and had sheerer coverage, while the blush and contour powders were pigmented and blendable.

Zoeva Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50 for 0.50 oz.) includes ten warm-toned, matte eyeshadows housed in a slim, cardboard palette. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and “easy to blend.” Overall, the eyeshadow formula was pigmented, silky, blendable, and long-wearing. It was an easy palette to apply, use, and wear, and the shades coordinated with each other well. It is going to work best for someone who likes richer, warmer shades along with matte finishes; it would also work as a complementary palette to a more shimmer-heavy palette to add more versatile transition and crease shades. There were two shades that could have applied better and been less powdery, though they were workable and if you normally use primer, the shortcomings were even less apparent.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner (Part 3)

Zoeva Glance Graphic Eyes Eyeliner
Zoeva Glance Graphic Eyes Eyeliner

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is introducing six new shades, plus a limited edition collector’s box of all 16 shades (plus a pencil sharpener) on March 21st. I will be reviewing all 16 shades across three posts over the next week! 🙂 This is part three (view part one and part two here)…

Zoeva Glance Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark, bronzy brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a really creamy, smooth consistency that applied evenly and easily. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D62 Diamond Brown (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Sephora Cocoa (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Groundbreaker (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lord It Up (P, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). Buxom Come Over (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Broque (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Myth Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a light, champagne beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage in one stroke, which was somewhat buildable, but the texture, while very smooth and non-tugging, felt waxier and was harder to achieve really crisp, opaque lines with. The color had noticeably faded after seven and a half hours. MAC Paragon (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Blonde Ambition (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Venus (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Snowed In (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Opulence Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark coppery red with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, which was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. The texture was smooth and creamy, so it glided on easily and didn’t tug at the lash line. The color lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Fireball (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Rock ‘n’ Roll Bride Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a blackened brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine ruby red shimmer. It had good pigmentation in one stroke, and it was creamy, though a little more slippery than it needed to be, and glided on well. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours before thinning. Urban Decay Dark Force (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Stag (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Muse (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva The Truth Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, shimmering white with neutral-to-cool undertones. It had semi-opaque coverage but was hard to build up as it would apply unevenly, so some areas looked more opaque but denser/thicker than others. The color itself stayed on for eight hours. Urban Decay Cosmic (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Crystal Gun (P, $15.00) is brighter (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a smooth, pigmented, long-wearing, and waterproof eyeliner. Overall, when they’re good, they’re really good, and when they’re less good, they’re still long-wearing, just less pigmented (but often buildable). The texture is very creamy, so they glide effortlessly and never tug on the lash line. The line has some more interesting shades than the standard eyeliner range, which is always nice to see. The wear varies between seven and nine hours depending on the shade.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner (Part 2)

Zoeva After the Disco Graphic Eyes Eyeliner
Zoeva After the Disco Graphic Eyes Eyeliner

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is introducing six new shades, plus a limited edition collector’s box of all 16 shades (plus a pencil sharpener) on March 21st. I will be reviewing all 16 shades across three posts over the next week! 🙂 This is part two (view part one here)…

Zoeva After the Disco Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium yellow gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen with slight gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, and it was mostly opaque after two layers. The texture was lightly creamy, glided on well, and wore for eight hours with a bit of fall out. Urban Decay Goldrush (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Atomic Ore (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Stargazer (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). NARS Campo de' Fiori (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). MAC Powerline (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Cool Factor Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark blue with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had sheer color coverage in a single layer, and it was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture had a lot of slip to it, so it tended to go on more unevenly than other shades. It wore for eight hours but had sparkle migrate over time. MAC Industrial (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Skyscape (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Whirlpool (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Good Karma Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, blue-teal with gold and green sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage but had a more stained quality to it, where there was translucency that was more even yet subdued compared to the way it looked in the pencil. The texture was sparkly, and it felt a little rough against the lower lash line. This is one of the more sparkly shades, and there is some fall out/movement of that sparkle during wear. The underlying color stayed in place for closer to eight hours. MAC Undercurrent (P, $15.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Siahi (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Junkie (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Fairytale (P, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Take the Plunge (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Estee Lauder Emerald Volt (P, $28.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Mr. Marvelous Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a blackened purple base with a ton of cool-toned violet sparkle. It is a more glittery shade, though not noticeably gritty when applying, but the base is streakier in one stroke. I was able to layer for greater opacity, at least. The eyeliner wore nicely for eight hours with some glitter fall out/travel. Urban Decay Retrograde (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Nymph (P, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva New Jewels Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with cool undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had medium coverage in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The texture was lightly creamy but less emollient than about half the range. It wore well for eight hours on me before thinning. Colour Pop Ho Ho (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Designer Purple (P, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Nymph (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Milani Perfect Purple (P, $6.99) is warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
