I wanted for the longest time to try the Zoeva brushes and when they launched their new line, I decided to try a couple.
I chose the:
- 102 Silk Finish (10,50€)
- 109 Face Paint (12,50€)
- 224 Luxe Defined Crease (6,20€)
Shipping costs: 7,50€
First of all, I love them all. They're very soft, work beautifully and wash easily.
Here are my thoughts on them:
102 Silk Finish: it is quite similar to another brush that I love, the Sephora Mineral Powder brush (that costs about 16€ if I'm not mistaken). It blends everything perfectly, liquid foundation, mineral foundation, blush, bronzer, creams and powders, you name it. It is beyond comparison to the Sigma F82 Round Kabuki that I also own because the Sigma one is too dense and moves the product around.
Here they are:
109 Face Paint: I 'be been looking for a contouring brush for quite some time but the available options (Mac, Illamasqua, Nars) are quite expensive. So, when Zoeva launced this one i decided to give it a try and i'm so happy i did! It has the perfect size, not too big not too small, and i can achieve a sharp contour if i desire so or a more diffused and natural result, for everyday use. It works perfectly with cream and powder products. I have also used it with highlight, blush, even foundation, works like a dream every time. It also washes easily and it doesn't get stained.
224 Luxe Defined Crease: i'm a Mac 217 fanatic (who isn't?) but i find that on my eyes it blends the crease color a little too widely, it reaches quite high and when i want to be more precise it can be a pain in the derrière. Well, this little brush is perfect for this purpose, it allows me to be as precise as I wish. It blends beautifully and it is probably my favorite of the bunch (although they are all my favorites, lol).
Here it is side by side to my Mac 217
I also would like to give Zoeva a great thumbs up for the packaging, because each brush came in its black zip lock plastic pouch and they come very handy if you're a bit OCD like me, I use them to organize all sorts of little things!
I also got the trifold mirror (8,20€), it is very practical because it stands up on the table but I can also tuck it away when I don't need it.
Next on my wish list:
- 105 Luxe Highlight
- 106 Powder
- 142 Concealer Buffer
- 235 Contour Shader
Have you tried Zoeva brushes? Any recommendations?
That's it for now, I hope you are all well and thriving!
