FIRST IMPRESSION | ZOEVA THE GRAPHIC EYES+ BOX


Hi everyone! Today I’m going to tell you about my “First Impression” of the The Graphic Eyes+ Box by Zoeva.

First stop: The packaging. When you get this in the mail, it has been put in a makeup bag, which I think is great, because you can actually use the bag as a makeup bag. The set comes in a tin, do a see a trend here? (Read: MAC’s Archie’s Girls Collection has this tin thing going on as well) Frankly, I don’t think I will keep them in the tin, because it takes up quite a lot of space considering it contains only a few things. But the idea is great!
When you open the tin – this is the exciting part – the 10 pencils, sharpener and booklet are nicely put together. You have the cool toned pencils on the left and the warm toned pencils on the right. A minor complaint: the pencils are a bit hard to get out. On the other hand it’s a good thing, because you won’t have to be afraid they will fall out.
Now on to the product: the pencils! I have some of the Zoeva Soft Kohl pencils, and I really like them.
You get 10 pencils for €36, so for each pencil you pay only €3.60, and you get the sharpener and the booklet! Separately, each pencil costs €5.20, so you get a nice discount. Bargain!  

The colour range is really nice, they are unique but wearable. I think the descriptions Zoeva gives us are adorable so I'll put them in here.
The cooler shades, from the top down:
Close to Heaven: Described as “Dreamy and unexpected beauty. Iridescent light lilac/blue”, I would describe Close to Heaven as a cool, transparent pinkish/lilac shade with a blue sheen. I think this would be a beautiful inner corner highlight!

Mr. Marvelous: Described as “Two parts of heartbreaker, one part of madness. Black base with purple fine glitter”, when you see it, you would say it’s a dark purple. However, I have to agree with their description, you’ll see why when you see the swatches.

Good Karma: Described as “Your everyday fortune cookie. Mermaid teal-green with gold coloured fine glitter”, again I have to agree. When I see this colour I instantly think of mermaids, it’s beautiful!

Female Attraction: Described as “Prepare to stand out proud at the front. Matte, dark teal”, I would describe Female Attraction as creamy matte, dark petrol blue.

Blue Lotus: Described as “For a Royal Blue Rendezvous. Matte, rich royal blue”, I can’t disagree. It’s a beautiful royal/navy blue.

(Do you see Mr. Marvelous? In this picture you see that it’s a black with purple glitter due to the lighting.)

The warm shades, from the top down.
Nude Reflection: Described as “She loves the crystal drops of the rain and toast always with champagne. Champagne beige with crystal shimmer ”, I would describe it as a champagne or rose gold colour with a lot of shimmer.

Desert Traveller: Described as “Searching for balance in a faraway place. Matte Desert brown”, this colour reminds me of milk chocolate smeared on a kids’ mouth. Is that a good thing? Haha.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Bride: Described as “Rocker boy meets princess girl. Dark brown infused with pink and red glitter”, agreed.

Black to Earth: Described as “Smooth, but with a dark side. Rich, matte black”, again, I have to agree. This is the most pigmented, smooth, creamy black eye pencil I have ever seen!

Skyline: Described as “From Frankfurt with love. Matte black with silver coloured fine glitter”, I see why they call it Skyline; it does remind me of the sky at night with stars.
From left to right: Skyline, Black to Earth, Rock 'n' Roll Bride, Desert Traveller, Nude Reflection.
I’m in love with these pencils! Look at that pigmentation! They are really creamy and glide on like a dream. I would definitely recommend it to all of you, without a doubt!
