First when I started Makeupthang at Instagram I posted a picture on these Zoeva brushes (a picture borrowed from Pinterest) cause I wanted them SO bad. There were so many times that I nearly bought this particular set as well. So you can guess how happy (and lucky) I was when Zoeva kindly wanted me to try some of their brushes and one of their eyeshadow palettes? I was literally over the moon. Now I have tried both the brushes and the palette for about 2-3 weeks and I freakin love them! I noticed that I often reaches more for these brushes over my Sigma ones. My favorites are definitely the buffing brush ”104”, the blush brush ”126”, the flat contour brush ”109” and the blending brush in ”228”. All these four brushes I use on a daily basis. The only negative things I have to say about these brushes is that they are a bit lightweight. I prefer brushes with more ”umpf” in the hand if you know what I mean. I feel it´s easier to work with a brush with a bit of weight in it. I hope you understand what I´m trying to say, haha.. I would also like them to have a longer shaft. They are a bit too short. That can explain the lightweight maybe…
Now, lets talk about the palette. It is truly an amazing palette. I find the shimmer eyeshadows to be really creamy, they almost got a wet feeling to them. When a shadow feels creamy, buttery and almost a bit wet they are really pigmented and easies to apply. A dry, hard and stiff shadow tends to get more patchy on the eye. The matte ones are also pigmented and easy to apply which I really appreciate when it comes to matte eyeshadows. And to my favorite part of the palette- The colors! I love every single one of the shades because you got some cool mattes, warm mattes, darker mattes, lighter mattes, touches of colors, shimmers in brighter colors or more neutral shades. It is the perfect palette.
If you have wondered to pursuit anything from Zoeva I can highly recommend their products because I truly think they are an amazing brand with really great products.

Look what I got yesterday! Two of the new shades of Anastasia Beverly Hill´s liquid lipsticks. Or the shade Catnip is not the newest I think, but I have wanted it for a while now but it has been out of stock. So when I saw it was back I did´t hesitate to pursuit it and one of the newest shades, Crush. It´s a bit darker than Pure Hollywood which is my favorite liquid lipstick of all time. I think Crush is just that perfect nude shade with a hint of mauve. I prefer warmer nudes rather than cool nudes. If you haven´t checked out the shades from Anastasia, you really should- They are so gorgeous!
I ordered them from Anastasias website.
Here is last nights look! At first I was going to do a fun spring time look but then I saw this pretty bronzy shade in the Zoeva Nude Spectrum palett in the shade ”ND090” and I thought it would look stunning with my new hair color. Today I will create the first spring look featured one pair of my new lashes from House of Lashes. I think I will do bright colors and pink lips.
I would love to hear what you think about this look, what you would like to see more of, etcetera.

Look what I´ve got today! A amazing package from House of Lashes. Can we just please take a moment for the cutest packagings EVER?! I am totally in love with the Lash Story and that little Lash Drawer Box fits perfect on my vanity. It is absolutely CHAOS in my lash drawer. It feels like I´ve got lashes everywhere… But now I can get my lashes more organized with help of the Lash Drawer Box and the Lash Story. The luxurious Precious Gem Lash Case (the blue one) is perfect to store my lashes in when I´m traveling- It fits three pair of lashes and one of the small lash glues. But meanwhile I use it as decor because it is so freakin beautiful. Thank you House of Lashes for everything!
