I got introduced to German makeup brand Zoeva at the Sephora Summer 2017 launch last year, after which the Zoeva Nude Spectrum Eye-Shadow Palette has become a ‘can’t live without’ staple in my makeup stash.

This summer, Sephora Middle East is launching the much-coveted Zoeva Opulence collection featuring an extravagant eye-shadow palette, a ritzy blush palette and a luxurious vegan brush set.

I am now the proud owner of not one, but two Zoeva eye-shadow palettes! While the Nude Spectrum features earthy tones and a balanced mix of shimmery and matte, the brand new Zoeva Opulence Eye-Shadow Palette lives up to its name with a predominantly metallic range of shades that exude the finer things in life.

When it comes to foundations, I always believed a higher price tag would guarantee a better finish. I rarely use foundations, and reserve them for special occasions or a bad case of breakouts. I therefore have very few foundations in my makeup stash, most of which range on the higher end of the pricing spectrum.

And then I got sent a bag of goodies from drugstore brand Max Factor. With this came the adorably compact Max Factor Pan Stik:
