I am a huge fan of the Zoeva Rose Golden palette (review here). I like it more than Urban Decay Naked 3. When I saw that Zoeva are coming out with a new rose gold palette, my expectations were huge.
I own The basic moment for quite some time now and I still can’t decide whether I like it or not. The quality of the eyeshadows is amazing, there is not a single bad one. The problem is that this palette is extremely boring. I enjoy natural barely there eye makeup, I have a few such palettes reviewed on the blog. Every time I use Zoeva The basic moment it’s like I haven’t applied anything. There are no dark shades in this palette. The makeup has no depth to it. I like the idea of the palette and the packaging. The eyeshadows are very pretty.
You need to reach out for shades outside of this palette just so you can accomplish an everyday look. The colours Waiting and Nostalgic are really beautiful. The problem is that I wear them all over the lid and they are the darkest shades in the palette.
The basic moment is a natural palette so your skin tone matters. I don’t think it works well on very fair skin like mine. There are mainly cool toned eyeshadows in this palette and the gold shade Unfinished does not work well with the other colours.
My feelings towards The Basic moment are mixed, I was slightly disappointed. I will use the eyeshadows in the palette, but I don’t like the combination.
