As a little ‘I’m going to University and I’m going to be poor for 3 years’ present to myself, I thought why not buy myself some Zoeva brushes? After far too much indecisiveness over which set to pick, I finally opted for the Rose Golden Collection Volume Two Complete Eye Brush Set. I have absolutely zero regrets, *spoiler* Zoeva have killed it in the brush department.
Not only are they pretty to look at, I mean every beauty blogger is obsessed with rose gold right? They also cover all my eye brush needs, a department I was currently lacking in. They’re super soft, don’t shed, and next to no weight behind them and I can honestly say next time I need some new brushes, I’ll hit Zoeva up. Anyway, I’ll give you a bit of a lowdown on each brush, in order by number obviously (control freak alert).
– 142 / Concealer Buffer
My new favourite concealer brush. It blends like a dream for that flawless finish everyone desires. It’s the ultimate concealer buffer and you know I don’t think I’ll ever use anything else. Yep, it even beats out the beauty blender.
– 221 / Luxe Soft Crease
I’ve been using this everyday since I got it. It really blends out any eye shadow you’ve used in the crease for a softer look and when it comes to the ultra pigmented shadows, I know this will pick up as little or as much as I want.
– 227 / Luxe Soft Definer
The MAC 217 dupe. It is pretty much my go to for making my eyeshadow look a little more professional, you know? Less like a five year old applied it, and more like a person in the know did.
– 228 / Luxe Crease
Another one that’s pretty good at blending out eyeshadow. I mean the name does say it’s for the crease.
– 230 / Luxe Pencil
Honestly, I’m not quite sure what to do with this one. I feel like for concealing blemishes it’ll be a worthy brush, or maybe for smoking out shadow in the outer v (like I actually know what that means without googling it).
– 231 / Luxe Petit Crease
Another brush for the crease. It’s a bit more tapered and softer than the pencil, so it’d make a pretty lovely competitor. Although I think this one is perfect for highlighting, it’s the right size to do the job well for any area of the face.
– 232 / Luxe Classic Shader
I’ve been using this to pack eye shadow on my eye. I don’t really know what else to use it for, but it does a lovely job. It’s just the right shape so I have enough control of where to place it, and it doesn’t smush it away, you know?
– 235 / Contour Shader
This is one that’s also good for highlighting, and the slightly tapered nature of the brush makes it the perfect candidate. Although when I’m feeling really lazy, it’s good for adding definition into the eye crease.
– 238 / Luxe Precise Shader
This is a really tiny brush so the use of the word ‘precise’ is definitely apt. My younger brother is eyeing it up to add to his paint brush collection and I just can’t part with it because it looks too darn cute. I just have to find a use for this.
– 310 / Spot Liner
… and the award for the teeniest brush I’ve ever seen goes to this one. I’m going to try using gel liner to line my eyes with once I’m all clear in the eyelid department (look at my recent update post for deets). I didn’t think it was possible to find a brush adorable, but this takes that title too.
– 322 / Brow Line
The Real Techniques brow brush is the only one I had in my collection, but has now been usurped Game Of Thrones style (well maybe if GOT had peaceful usurps) for this. This holds far more sturdier and can give a really precise look. I have way more control of powder products with this.
– 325 / Luxe Brow Light
I’m thinking this is a brush for die hard eyebrow lovers, maybe so you can use concealer to tidy everything up? I use it as a contour brush for my nose. It’s the perfect size so you don’t go overboard and it blends it out beautifully. Next aim with this brush: chiseling my cheekbones.
