Zoeva Rose Gold Brush Set – €65.00
Are these not the prettiest brushes you ever did see? I kind of treated myself to an early Christmas present of the gorgeous Rose Gold Zoeva Brush Set, i have just been that busy enjoying them that my post got delayed until after Christmas. Yes you will probably by now of all seen these brushes before; as well they have been hyped by bloggers and beauty lovers all over the world, and i just couldn’t resist them any longer! The set comes with a total of 8 makeup brushes made up with both Face & Eye brushes, all packed up in the most beautiful clutch bag/travel bag; everything topped off with rose gold detailing! – which i know we all have a little soft spot for.
The Brushes are not only the prettiest, they are fantastic quality! These Zoeva brushes are made with both natural and synthetic hair depending on the brushes and are some of the softest most luxurious brushes i have ever used to date. The natural bristles are better suited towards powder products while the synthetic are perfect for both powdery and creamy products! So i thought i would give you guys a little run down on each of the brushes individually (going in order of the above picture).
102 Silk Finish: This brush makes applying foundation easy peasy, i think i would go as far as to say this is maybe my favourite out of all the brushes in this set. I just love pretty much everything about this brush, the size, the ball like shape and most of all the finish it gives my foundation, it never picks up too much product and i just get such even coverage when using this brush!
106 Powder: Obviously the name gives this brush away… It’s a brush that is aimed at applying loose and pressed powder. It is made up of synthetic bristles and is really soft great for applying powder the only problem for some is the size (for me it isn’t that big of a deal, i actually really like it and find it really nice to use) but for some the bristles may be a little long and narrow instead of flat and more wide spread fluffy.
110 Face Shape: the face shape brush is definitely one of my favourites from the set, It’s like the 102 Silk Finishes little mini me. It can be used for contouring (with cream products), More precise foundation application or how i like to use it is for under eye concealer, i find it really comfortable to use and it’s just the perfect size – not too big or too small.
142 Concealer Buffer: I prefer this concealer brush for use on any blemishes i might have, even though it is recommended for the under eyes, i find it a little hard and pointy for use on my under eyes (yes accidents have happened) but for use on blemishes i find it perfect it’s really quick and easy to blend the concealer where you need it most.
127 Luxe Sheer Cheek: This is the brush i was most excited to use, I’ve never actually owned an angled shaped brush which looked so easy to control, the angled brush i own the handle was too long to have full control. The 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek has natural bristles so is better to use with powder makeup products such as: Blush Bronzers & Contouring products. It’s really fluffy and blends out powder products really well giving a natural looking finish.Eyes:-
227 Soft Definer: This is the perfect brush for blending out powdered eyeshadows, It has natural bristles and to be honest is just the perfect shape for blending out eyeshadows. I’ve noticed it is very similar to the Mac 217 brush which is well loved across the beauty world.
231 Petit Crease: The Petit crease is the brush i have warmed to the most, at first I’ll be honest… i didn’t really get it, But after using it for a while I’ve found it to be really good for accentuating and blending in the crease. It again has natural bristles and is the ideal shape for helping create the perfect smokey eye. It really helps to pack on the colour and intensify the look.
317 Wing Liner: I’m really bad at winged liner… So anything which can help me along my way is welcomed into my makeup collection with open arms. It’s basically a really fine, angled brush which helps create a precise line (i like to use it with gel liners) and it has made my winged liner look a lot more professional!Overall, i am so pleased i can finally say i own the Rose Gold Zoeva Brushes not only are they super pretty they are fantastic quality! I didn’t think anything would replace my Real Technique brushes but the Zoeva brushes have definitely equalled the playing field. You can purchase these straight from the Zoeva website which will cost you €65 not including shipping, but to save myself the hassle of working out the cost from Euros to Pounds etc… I decided to order mine from Beauty Bay which ended up costing me £56.95 with free delivery and they arrived super quick, like the next day!
