Introducing... the most beautiful brush set of all time!It's been a few months since I purchased this stunning brush set from Zoeva, and I thought it was about time I wrote a review for you. I hope this is useful for you and I tried to go in detail with every brush along with general opinions about the set. Let's see what we have...
The whole setIn general, I can't say enough good things about this lovely set. The brushes are great quality. I adore their color, a light powder pink with rose gold accents. I'm so pleased I got the set as it comes with this lovely makeup bag, which I keep getting compliments on. The price is 65€, which is steep, but worth it. You can purchase the set here. For me, it's just the perfect combination of brushes and a really essential set. There's not one brush here that is useless or annoying, they're all amazing. If I had one wish it would be for Zoeva to include a powder brush with this, or maybe a concealer brush. But I'm probably biased because I don't really wear eyeshadow... Let's go more in detail about the brushes now.
104 BufferI've been using this brush for my foundation religiously. It's very soft and not too dense, but thick enough. It's easy to wash and keeps its shape as well as function despite me washing it frequently. It applies liquid foundation beautifully, there are no streaks when you buff it in and just looks so natural. I've used this brush with all kinds of coverage and different products and it has always excelled. You can purchase it separately here for 14,80€.
109 Luxe Face PaintI love this brush so much I actually have two of them. Before purchasing the set, I'd already bought the brush by itself and it's my only double Zoeva brush - I just love it so much. It's amazing for contouring with both cream and powder products. I personally suck at contouring, but this brush makes it so so easy, I also use it for blusher at times and it's just wonderful! It's not that dense, but it has a great shape. It can get a little scratchy if you don't wash it enough and it loses its shape, but I still love it. You can purchase it separately here from 12,80€.
126 Luxe Cheek FinishThis is probably the most boring brush in the collection. Can be used for powder, bronzer, blush, highlighter... Personally I use it for blusher. It's a great brush, but nothing extraordinary. I'm not very picky when it comes to blush brushes, I just think the 126 isn't great for powder as it's too long and not dense enough (unless you're doing a light dusting). Not a must-have, but good to find in the set. You can buy it separately here from 12,80€.
226 SmudgerA nice eye brush. It works for smudging, but I mostly use it to pack color on the lid. Dense and short, it's great when you want to add a lot of product. I haven't used it for smudging yet as I don't really wear smokey eyes, but it would be good for the bottom lashline, judging by the shape. Purchase is separately here from 7,80€.
228 Luxe CreaseThis crease brush is absolutely lovely. Very very soft and long and bendy enough to use on hooded lids, too. My old favorite was a Sigma blending brush which is still great, but a bit too short for my liking, so this is perfect. You could also use it for highlighter. Available here from 7,80€.
234 Luxe Smoky ShaderI kind of disagree with the name of this brush. It's supposed to be a smoking brush, I just prefer to use it for packing on color. In my opinion, possibly a little unnecessary in this kit as you already have a great brush for that - 226. However, I still find uses for it, so it's not wasted... Just wish they'd substitute either the 226 or 228 with a powder brush. Purchase it here from 7,80€.
317 Wing LinerWhether you use gel liner or khol, this is pretty much a must-have brush in your makeup collection. Personally, I use liquid liner, but I still found a great use for the 317 - I like to use it for concealer to really sharpen the edges of my liner and brows, and it works great. I love that this brush is in here, and it's really become a part of my routine. Available here from 6,80€.
322 Brow LineThis brush is a total must-have for me. I prefer it to RT's eyebrow brush, it's softer and more defined. The Real Techniques brush is too dense for me. The 322 is perfectly angled and works with both cream, wax and powder products. Would recommend, this is such a staple in my collection. Purchase it here from 6,80€.
Makeup bagShh, this was kind of the reason why I got the whole set. I have to say, the makeup bag really is stunning and such nice quality, too. I don't think it's real leather, it must be faux, but it's so very soft and pleasant to the touch. The color is a stunning rose gold and it's just so beautiful! I'd even wear it as a clutch... Just great part of this set, unfortunately you cannot buy it separately.
All in all, this set comes with my thumbs up. I really love it and am so glad I have it - been using most of these things every day. If you're looking for a great face & eyes kit, look no further. All I'd add is a concealer and powder brush, otherwise you're all set!
