Zoeva Strobe Gel
Zoeva Strobe Gel is somewhere between a liquid, a mousse and a jelly in texture – apart from the initial getting it out of the pot, it’s an absolute doddle to apply. I think it’s a two brush job here – a little one to scoop out and one to blend – I’m using the MUR oval brush which does a perfect job of seamless blending which you absolutely need with a strobe. I think this is truly the anyone-can-strobe product because it glides onto your skin and blends so beautifully that you get that light-flash with no obvious lines.
When you apply it to your skin, the Zoeva Strobe Gel feels cool – some of the liquid evaporates from it so it doesn’t stay completely wet and you’re left with a non-chunky shimmer that gives the kind of ethereal glow that I don’t think you can get from a powder highlight. In fact, looking back at products from the beginning of the strobe trend, I can see now how rubbish a lot of them were – this kind of product is improving the strobe look no end. Importantly, this is an any age product – no powder to dry out your skin and highlight all the wrong things but instead a creme blend that moves with your skin. So, if you thought you couldn’t, you can. I’m going to! It comes in three shades – Halo (pearl and silver), Corona (peachy and the one I have here) and Aureole in bronze/gold for deeper skin tones.
Zoeva Strobe Gel is launching 31st October for £11 on the Zoeva Uk site.
