The Affordable Cheek Palette That Is Full Of Rich Pigments And Drama

Sometimes the most unsuspecting colours yield the most unexpected results. Here's what our reader Joanna has to say about this new, bold number by Zoeva.

Welcome to KULALA Beauty Club, where YOU our dear readers help us suss out the best in the beautysphere. This week, we have Joanna (@jo_annalemons) and her review of the Zoeva Opulence Blush Palette. 

They say that applying blush is one of the most underrated steps in your makeup routine. Call it vain, but I can totally relate to that. Just like contouring, applying blush helps to balance your face shape and features. It also elevates your no-makeup makeup look with a healthy pink flush. Having said that, I always did hope that blushers would last a little longer. When I got my hands on the Zoeva Opulence Blush Palette, I was somewhat skeptical of the colours. I rarely use any shades that are too far off from my everyday look. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try. 

I began this experiment with the highlighter on the far left of the palette. One swipe and I could immediately see the olive tones and shimmer which is quite sheer, but easily buildable. Unfortunately, it didn’t stay on for as long as I hoped and disappeared after a mere three hours. If you’re in search of a barely-there glow, though, this might be more suitable for you.

The second peachy shade is my favourite. Although the orange tones may seem not seem like the usual pink blushes, it’s a nice colour that’s not too overpowering and actually surprisingly easy to love.

Out of all three shades, I was highly anticipative (and doubtful) of the last shade that’s a really strong red. As expected, it didn’t look very nice as a blush as it was too intense and did not blend as well as it should. I do find that it’d be better suited for darker skin tones because of the red is quite deep and is highly pigmented. Since red eyeshadow’s all the rage, it does still serve a good purpose. 

At the end of the day, the Zoeva Opulence Blush Palette didn’t live up to my expectations as the formula was subpar and didn’t last long with my combination skin. Nonetheless, the colours were pigmented and buildable, but may not be the most versatile and easy palette to use.
