Review: Zoeva - Warm shimmer palette

Today I'm going to blog about the eyeshadow palette I received yesterday! A friend of mine introduced me to Zoeva, a German make-up brand. She said how reasonable the prices were for quality make-up, they especially sell eye make-up.

Zoeva has 8 palettes to sell and I chose the warm shimmer palette. I'm not a big fan of bright colours on my eyelids so this was the best choice. Shipping costs were about €5 to the Netherlands and it took 2-3 days to arrive.

As you can see the palette has a lot of neutral colours. I love the colours! It's very basic, but still, I love it haha. The eyeshadow applies very well on my eyelids and it stays the whole day. The only thing that isn't handy is that each colour has its own pigment. This means one colour can be very pigmented (don't have to apply much on your eyes) while the other colour needs more (have to apply a bit more). So if you don't want to make any mistakes while applying make-up I suggest testing on paper or your hand first before applying on your eyes. Or another option: memorize how pigmented each colour is lol. That sounds fun, studying the pigmentation of 88 colours :D
