Zoeva Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

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.

Make It Last

Make It Last is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to bare skin but was just a touch powdery, so there was excess product that kicked up in the pan and some sheerness when applied to the skin. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

Yet to Come

Yet to Come is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin but had a dusty texture that felt slightly dry and loose in the pan. I felt like my eyelids “ate” this color, as it had faded significantly at the six-hour mark.

Here to Stay

Here to Stay is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had good color payoff, though it was not quite opaque without a primer underneath it. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable without being too soft or powdery in the pan. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Liquid Clock

Liquid Clock is a soft, peachy beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture seemed a little dusty in the pan, but I didn’t notice it sheering out too readily or looking dusty on the lid. The eyeshadow started to fade on me after seven hours of wear.

Never Ending

Never Ending is a light-medium brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque, while the consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable with a slightly firmer texture in the pan compared to others in the palette (but not actually stiff or hard to work with!). It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Unfinished

Unfinished is a medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was looser and a touch dry in the pan, though it applied fairly well to bare skin. It had the type of texture that would significantly improve over a primer or with a dampened brush. It had good pigmentation, which sheered out somewhat when initially applied and blended out on the lid. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

New Era

New Era is a soft, medium taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. Though there was some powderiness in the pan, the eyeshadow was incredibly soft with decent substance, so it applied well to bare skin and had opaque coverage that did not immediately sheer out to nothingness like one might expect, given the texture. It would be important to tap off excess product prior to applying to avoid fallout, though. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Zinc Stearate, Mica (Ci 77019), Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Polybutene, Octyldodecanol, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lauroyl Lysine, Dehydroacetic Acid, [May Contain. +/- CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77492 (Iron Oxides), CI 75470 (Carmine), CI 16035 (Red 40 Lake), CI 77742 (Manganese Violet)].

Waiting

Waiting is a medium-dark taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully to the lid and adhered evenly. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too soft or too firm in the pan, which made it easy to work with. On me, the eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours.
