It’s been a little while since I got one of the limited edition Glossyboxes and for some reason this one with Zoeva caught my eye. Zoeva are famous for their makeup brushes which are hand made and as I’ve been trying to build a good stock of quality brushes this was a no brainer for me. In total there are six products with everything you need for a full makeup look with a value of £85!
First is the Cocoa blend eyeshadow palette this actually looks like a chocolate bar and the shades inside are inspired by chocolate including the names. It’s a beautiful palette that blends so well as the shades are buttery smooth. It’s a fab palette for autumn colours and one I will really enjoy using.
Next is the Voyager Travel Brush set which has four brushes in a travel roll, perfect for popping in your suitcase if we ever get to travel anywhere! There’s a concealer buffer, crease blush for blending eyeshadow, shader for smokey effects and a brow brush. It’s a fab little set and would be ideal for anyone just starting to use proper makeup or to boost your brush collection like mine.
Also included is the eyeshadow fix matte primer to help your eyeshadow stay put and create a canvas for your looks. I really liked this as it helps prevent creasing and it’s so simple to use. You just dab onto your eyelid and wait for it to set before applying your eyeshadow as usual.
The Pure Matte Lips in the shade Dare to Dream is not a shade I’d normally go for. But it’s really nice when it’s applied, a pretty matte pink. It’s a lovely formula for a matte lipstick and reminds me of the Huda Beauty mattes which aren’t drying but are still long lasting. Given that it looks like face masks will be a staple in our lives for quite some time yet long lasting lipsticks are the way forward!
A highlighter is a must for cheering up your look right now and the strobe gel doesn’t disappoint! The shade is called Nova and it literally looks like a jelly of melted gold shimmer, mesmerising ! It has a pearlescent glow to it and creates a lovely dewy effect on the skin. You only need a tiny bit for a sheer glow but you could easily make it more intense and build it up. As with most highlighters the recommendation is to apply to the cheekbones, brow bones , Cupid’s bow and bridge of the nose.
Graphic eyes+ in the shade Black to Earth is the last product in this box and it’s a eye pencil which is really smooth to apply. It blends out nicely so I think you could also do a nice smokey eye with it as well. It also says it’s waterproof which I haven’t seen before in a pencil like this.
I’m so pleased with the box as it’s great value and I really like that aside from your foundation and mascara you have everything you need to do a full face. My standouts have to be the the eyeshadow palette and the highlighter, I’m a sucker for anything shimmery and pretty!
As always would love to hear your thoughts on this and if you’ve tried any of the products . This is still available via the Glossybox website and is priced at £25 for subscribers and £30 for non subscribers.
