The Luxe Color Blush formula is supposed to be a “silky” powder that is “long-lasting and fade-proof.” The texture is incredibly smooth with just the right firmness of press–not stiff but not powdery or dusty–and finely-milled. It blends out beautifully on the skin with a natural finish that’s not overtly shimmery but doesn’t look flat on the skin. It was nicely pigmented, while it was still easy to diffuse for sheerer coverage, if that’s your preference (or you over-apply). On me, the color lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably. I was impressed by this one that it definitely made me want to get the other shades in the range next time I buy from Zoeva (I bought three of the six shades–two more to be reviewed!).

Too warm and orange for me, but glad it scored well for those who can wear this. The color reminds me of Too Faced PBJ palette

Ooh, psych! This has been on my Zoeva wish list, and it’s been promoted to def get list. Gina’s getting harder to find,except through Nars.com. (And where’s Gilda?) wouldn’t have to add Infatuation, if I do a MUG order. Hope you review some of the rest of these, maybe the blush quads. Know you have lots in the pipeline. This is appreciated.

I am so averse to paying for shipping nowadays, but I am just going to have to suck it up and plan a Zoeva haul, because everything you have reviewed from them just looks amazing!

could you please review some of the brushes? they are very affordable and i have heard some great things, esp the natural haired ones

I’m always lusting after a *just right* peachy orange-brown blush. This one looks fantastic!

I’m about to start a new job. Maybe I’ll treat myself to a Zoeva order once I get my first paycheck…

I really love my ZOEVA blush in the colour “Shy Beauty”. It performs better on me than my MAC blushes and is so much more affordable 🙂 I am also a huge fan of their brushes <3 Greetings from Germany 🙂
