Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette

Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette ($20.83 for 0.36 oz.) includes a contouring powder, highlighter, and blush. It comes in a slim, “rose gold” cardboard palette where each shade is a good-size for travel but still large enough to accommodate many different-sized face brushes. The quality of the palette is nice, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more aptly named highlighter, though this isn’t going to be the most universally-applicable palette, so I would have loved to have seen iterations of “rose gold” for darker skin tones, too.

Heavy Crown is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable, but the consistency was thinner and firmer in the pan (whereas the other shades were softer), so it was a little harder to grab color onto the brush as well as harder to blend on the skin. On me, this shade wore for seven and a half hours. MAC Taupe (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Contour Soft (Tarteist) (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar).

Glowing Still is a bright, creamy white with a yellow sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that seemingly glows in the dark it’s so bright and white. I thought it would look ashy or chalky on me skin tone, but I was surprised at how much the sheen came through after blending and buffing the product into the skin–but it did lighten the area slightly, so it may suit lighter skin tones better. The highlighter started to fade after eight hours of wear. J. Cat Beauty White Goddess (-, $9.00) is more muted (95% similar). Fenty Beauty Sidechick (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Palace Door is a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was soft, smooth, and dense with a moderate creaminess (though it is a powder!) that blends and diffuses nicely on the skin. I thought the amount of shimmer was going to be prove problematic on the skin, but it didn’t emphasize pores at all. It’s more of a highlighting blush on my skin tone, so it makes me think the palette might be better for those lighter than I. The blush wore well for eight hours before fading.

Palace Door is a gorgeous rose gold, and Glowing Still is well named -wow, that is bright, and look at that stunning duo chrome finish, kind of OTT , but it’s beautiful! Reminds me of the Looxi highlighters. BTW, are you still planning to review those?

Omg, looking at them in the full face pictures, I sighed. Those are just TOO pretty. I think they would work really well on my skin tone. Zoeva really seems to have this ‘rose gold’ thing nailed… I may have to save up a bit and buy several of their products at once to make the shipping worth it. I’m still so in love with rose gold– when I bought Naked 3, I finally understood what “neutral” was supposed to mean for me. I’m so pink, lol. Ahh this looks amazing, thank you so much for swatching!

Its so funny, because everyone in the US thinks that if a product has to come all the way from Germany, 16USD is a high price. I live in The Netherlands, and I pay 3x that for most things (Sephora… I see you)
So 16USD is not that ridiculous if you think about other people that need to pay a crazy amount or that company doesnΒ΄t ship to your country (Colourpop, Too Faced, Urban Decay, 60% of the brandss a Sephora)
