It is only since blogging, that I have bothered with makeup brushes. Before that I used to either use my fingers, or sneak into my Mum’ room and use hers. I know, how bad is it that I didn’t have any but my Mum did. The shame..
The first makeup brushes I bought were from Real Techniques and I love them, but for months I had been lusting over the Zoeva brushes for so long, and vowed that one day I would own some. Well that day has come! It all started one rainy, cold day whilst shopping online, bored. I know never a good combination but whilst ordering some Christmas presents, I just happened to stumble across the Zoeva website..I didn’t type it in myself. Honest. I then happened to add the most gorgeous looking brushes ever to my online basket, and before I knew I knew it..my bank details had been entered and they were MINE. I don’t know how this stuff happens, but it happens all the time, pfft!
Considering they are coming from Germany, I didn’t expect shipping to be as quick as it was! I ordered them on the Sunday, and they were in my very eager, excited hands by Thursday!
The brushes were so well packaged, they came in a box, filled with inflated plastic sheets and each brush was individually wrapped. They also came with a fabric pouch and a sleek leather clutch.
The set comes with 8 brushes, 5 face brushes and 3 eye brushes:
- 106 Powder: Apply loose and pressed powder.
- 102 Silk Finish: Apply and blend foundation.
- 110 Face Shape: Contour the face shape with cream and powder products.
- 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek: Apply powder blush.
- 142 Concealer Buffer: Apply and blend concealer.
- 227 Soft Definer: Softly blend and smooth eyeshadow.
- 231 Petit Crease: Accentuating and blending into the crease.
- 317 Wing Liner: Detailed eyeliner strokes and perfect wing.
The brushes are hand crafted designed with rose gold ferrules and matte handles, engraved at the bottom with the brush number, name and the brands quote ‘Colour.Love.Makeup’. All the brushes come with both, high quality natural hair and synthetic taklon bristles, so they can be used with powder and cream based products.
I have completely fallen in love with these brushes! Not only do they look amazing, they make applying makeup a dream and they have absolutely no fall out when washing them.
They are £55 for the set, which works out at not even £8 a brush (depending on your currency)!!
Have you tried Zoeva? What do you think of their brushes?
