Zanzi Beauty

Recently a friend of mine and I were getting dressed at my place to go out. We both wanted bold colours, so I shared my Zanzi Eyeshadow Palette. My friend has a gorgeous dark brown complexion, I suppose I’d be ‘classified’ as medium brown and Zanzi’s shades popped on both of our complexions, even though we have different undertones. I rocked a teal and gold combo, while she went for a deep metallic blue. Zanzi Beauty will light-up the lives of brownbeauties.

Zanzi Beauty is an American brand, which was inspired by East African culture. All of the products are paraben and talc free. The range was made with medium to dark skinned brownbeauties in mind. Their collection includes seven metallic and nine matte Lip Creams, an Eyeshadow Palette and a Foundation with 20 shades.

I was sent the Zuri Eyeshadow Palette and one Matte Liquid Lip Cream in the shade Riot which is a pinkish-purple. Both products had striking packaging and ties in with the East African influence. I prepped my lips with a balm before applying the lip cream. It was easy to apply and the texture was smooth and creamy.  It lasted several hours without the need for a touch-up. 

The Eyeshadow Palette is a collection of 12 stunning bold shades which are a mixture of shimmers and mattes. Colours range from brilliant yellow to majestic blue to a sexy on trend cranberry. Each colour stands on its own, not like some palettes which have several tones of the same colour.  Although the shades are vibrant, I still applied eye primer first. The primer made the shades sit better and last longer. They were super soft, easy to apply and there was only a little fall out.


If you luv to go bold, Zanzi Beauty is the one for you. To find out more about the brand visit their website.
