Zoeva Complete Eye Set

Hi!

Up until about two years ago, I applied my foundation with my hands, my eyeshadow with my fingers, and fake tan with a sock. I had one bronzing brush that I used for blusher, powder and bronzer. The first proper brush I bought was the Sigma F80 - and so began my obsession.

Recently, after the launch of the Real Techniques Bold Metals collection, I had a good look around to see if I could get a decent set of brushes at a better price, and one name kept cropping up.

This is the Zoeva 12 piece eye set, and she is a beauty.


I know that the rose gold set seems to be popular, but I like the simplicity of black and silver, so I went for that. Plus the rose gold wasn't in stock.

The brushes all come with plastic protectors, in this lovely little bag.




There are twelve brushes in the set, and each one has a number on the side along with a description of what it does. I really wish all brushes had that - sometimes I haven't a clue what to do with a particular brush, so this is incredibly helpful. Here's what you get:

142 - Concealer Buffer


224 - Luxe Defined Crease


226 - Smudger


227 - Luxe Soft Definer


228 - Luxe Crease


230 - Luxe Pencil 



231 - Luxe Petit Crease


234 - Luxe Smoky Shader


237 - Detail Shader


315 - Fine Liner


317 - Wing Liner


322 - Brow Line


They're gorgeous brushes, so soft and really sturdy. They cost €60 for the set on the Zoeva website (plus €7.50 for shipping via DHL). Even at €67.50 that's working out as €5.60 per brush, which is a great price for something that's really good quality. Personally I'd rather a lower price and not bother with the bag, but I suppose it is handy if you're travelling or working, or if your brushes don't fit in your makeup bag.

There are lots of other different sets available, including face brushes and smaller eye sets. Zoeva are also available on a couple of other websites - there's a stockist list for Europe and the U.S on the Zoeva site here.

    1. They're really nice, I'd say they're similar in quality to Blank Canvas, the odd one or two seem to be better. It's a nice set x

  3. I've wanted to try this brand for the longest time and always shy away because of the price. I'm so jealous, they are gorgeous looking! I'd really love to try some of their eye shadow palettes too. Mmmm, make up :D x
