Shine & Shade with new Zoeva Mineral Highlighter & Bronzer.

Available from the online Zoeva store as of July 1st, these two new products from Zoeva are mineral based loose powders that offer the perfect bronzing effect & satin glow. Cutely named "Sun over shoulder" (Bronzer) & "Summer Light" (Highlighter) they are extremely finely milled and free of parabens, talc & fragrance. They are also 100% vegan!

The 2.5g/ 0.09oz jars cost €4.50 & come with sifters.
The bronzer is a light warm brown shade without being muddy or orange and is matte making it perfect for contouring as well as bronzing. It is designed for all skin-tones but would disappear on deeper skins. I think it would work on skin shades up to a MAC NC40-45/NW35 but even then it would be subtle. I think it works well on lighter to medium skins and is definitely buildable. At first when I applied it to my face I did think it a tad scary/strong looking but once lightly buffed in it became perfectly subtle, but like I said it is buildable. I have it on my cheeks/temple the picture below, as well as lightly on my nose as a contour.

The highlighter is a very light subtle shimmery/satin pale pink shade that gives the skin a natural glow thanks to its' light-reflecting pigments. Similar to the bronzer, the light powder can be "layered from softly sheer to sensuously shimmering" and will work on all but the whitest of white complexions where it may not be quite stark enough to stand out. 

I have been using these guys more often than not over the past month and the only fault I could find was that I had to remove the sifters that came with the jar as the powder was so tightly packed beneath that I couldn't get any of the powder out! I have found this with other similar products and usually end up chucking the sifters.

The 2.5g/ 0.09oz jar costs €4.50 and is available now!
