ZOEVA – The Basic Moment Collection

Beauty bloggers and YouTubers have been raving about Zoeva’s products for a while now, and I have to admit I’ve never tried any of their products before.

However, when I saw the Basic Moment Collection, I knew I had to get my hands on it. The palette is gorgeous, and the colours and the design look breathtaking and simply divine!

The Brand Zoeva

If you’ve never heard of Zoeva now is the time to get to know it! Established in 2008 and based in Germany. The word Zoeva comes from the greek work ‘zoe’ which means life and eva who was the first woman.

They started off producing makeup brushes and have now branched out to all makeup. They make high-quality products that are designed to dramatically change a woman’s life.

And honestly, a lot of their products look like they do just that!

The Basic Moment Collection

Before I even get to the inside of the palette I just have to talk about the packaging. They both come in a soft pink magnetic case which, honestly is one of the prettiest packagings I’ve ever seen.

The only downside to the case is that there is no mirror inside. I don’t usually use the mirror that comes with the makeup because I need a big full sized mirror to do my makeup:) But I know a lot of people do like a mirror inside so that’s a bit of a shame.

The Basic Moment Collection comes with a gorgeous eyeshadow and face palette. I have always had an obsession with neutral palettes so these are dream palettes for me:)

Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette

The eyeshadow palette comes with 10 different beautiful colours all made up of timeless neutrals. There are 5 matte colours and 5 metallic colours with each colour being prettier than the next.

Each colour can be worn alone and it will still look amazing because all the colours are highly pigmented. Because of the beautiful range of colours this palette works amazingly for all skin shades.

Like the high quality of all Zoeva makeup, these palettes are no different. The shadows stay on seamlessly and perfectly throughout the day.

Nevertheless, I always recommend using an eye primer. One of my favourite ones is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion which always adds a little touch of magic.

Basic Moment Blush Palette

The Basic Moment Blush Palette comes with a trilogy of three beautiful sculpted shades to enhance your features. It comes with a peachy blush, a gorgeous contouring colour and to finish it off a champagne-coloured highlighter.

They look flawless when worn and last really nicely throughout the day. One swipe is all you need since they are highly pigmented. The colours are buildable if you desire a more dramatic look.

My Thoughts

Do I recommend Zoevas Basic Moment Collection? The colours are beautiful, and the quality of the palettes is unbeatable as is the price too:)  

What I also love about both palettes is that they complement each other perfectly. There’s really not much to lose!

  1. Hi,
    I’ve been looking for a suitable eye palette for a long time. After reading your post, I think this Zoevas Basic Moment Collection will suit me perfectly. It would be nice if you have swatch tutorials for all of the colours in that palette. Another question is that is this eye palette makes my eyes look like I put glitter on?
    Thank you!

    1. Thank you for your comment:) The amazing thing about Zoeva’s Basic Moment collection is that they suit practically everyone. The metallic colours are highly pigmented colours with a touch of sparkle to them. Don’t worry they don’t look anything like glitter! Good point about the swatches- I will keep it in mind for next time.

  2. This looks so pretty. I’ve been wanting an eye palette for so long, but I tend to give more notice to luxury makeup brands.
    I’ll try and look more into this since I haven’t heard of this brand before either. It’s perfect for my aesthetic. Thanks for this review, I’ll definitely check this product out

    1. I understand that- I also used to be more drawn to the luxury brands. But then I learnt that there’s amazing makeup that’s not luxury and sometimes even does an even better job! Like this eyeshadow palette:)

    These are pretty. Nice, soft , lady like colors. I love them
    I am puzzled as to why this brand is not more popular.
    Both palates complement each other so well.
    I think I will try both! Can’t imagine getting one without the other.
    Thanks for the heads up on this zoeva basic moment collection. I’ll let you know how it works out

    1. Please do let me know! I love hearing back from you guys. You’re right- this brand should be more popular!
