Za 2014 Christmas Limited Edition Colour Set in Gold
Holiday season is here and there’s nothing that says party like gold and glitter. When the Za Limited Edition Makeup Set appeared before me, it felt like Christmas has come early. The gold tones are consistent throughout the Pure Gold set, which consists of an eye palette and two lip glosses. I’ve been trialing these for over a week now and have been impressed with these little things.
The Za Impact Full Eyes Groovy Limited Edition ($20) offers four shimmery neutral shades. The shimmer in these are gorgeous. The gold one has the appearance and effect of gold leaf when applied to the lids. Pigmentation is good overall and the eyeshadows are long-lasting. I’d reserve this palette for special occasions as the shimmer in them are too much for everyday use. It is housed in a plastic case with transparent cover. The applicator that comes with it is soft and sturdy, but nothing that would replace your brushes.
There are two lip colors in the Pure Gold set: Vivid Red and Coral Red. I would classify the Za Rich Glam Liquid Rouge Limited Edition ($18 each) as a highly pigmented lip gloss. One swipe is enough. Application is easy as the applicator’s shape conforms to the lips. As it is mainly a gloss, it transfers easily to everything. But staying power is good. The Vivid Red is more pigmented while the Coral Red is more shimmery. I’m loving the Vivid Red myself.
All in all, the collection is amazing for its value ($29.90). The eye palette and lip glosses perform well and complement each other. It’s so easy to create a lot of looks using these! The collection also comes in Pure Silver, if you’re more inclined to cooler shades. If it came with an eye liner, mascara and a blush, it would be a holiday makeup dream set!
