Hello guys, this is probably the multiple times I said “Hello” to all of you. I recently purchased ZOEVA cosmetics product that is not makeup tools but MAKEUP, if you know what I mean, and yes, I purchased this pure lips velour. if you happened to oversee my Instagram stories from last 2 weeks ago. The ZOEVA brand is popular with their brushes, the color for the brushes is really attractive and so many people taking pictures of the brushes. The brush is really soft and easy to use, I do have one. I love the brush for eyeshadow and for contour but the eyeshadow brush of ABH makeup by MARIO palette is way better in quality.
I just thought at the moment when I decided to purchased it, that the price is way cheaper than Sephora cream lip stain, and yes! it’s matte finishing, so I decided to buy alongside with the ZOEVA strobing gel. If you followed me on Instagram, you know that I have provided the swatches picture and the product outlook, been doing all swatches this couple of weeks, all highlighter and eyeshadow palette on Instagram
and for the applicator is tulip applicator as you see on picture below:
|It’s feel fine when I see the applicator, no dry patches at all, unlike NYX lingerie applicator. However the wearing feeling it’s same with NYX lingeries|
I do love the applicator, however, I don’t like the smell. when I open the lid of the lips velour, I can smell some kind of chemical and it’s quite strong but sooner afterwards, the smell is gone but yet still I don’t like because when I drink my favorite green tea or plain water, I can feel that my lips are drying up, it similar feeling when I use my ColourPop, but when I apply it at first, it feels like NYX lingeries wearable feeling. This is matte finishing lip makeup.
