Of the eight brushes the only one I haven't used is the 317 Wing Liner. Y'all know my eyeliner struggles.
Each brush is labelled with the company name, what the brush is and the Zoeva slogan: "Color. Love. Makeup". As stated in their description, the synthetic bristle brushes are made of taklon. Only three brushes have natural hair fibres; I presume it's goat hair. Every single one of them is easy to clean and soft on the skin.
Of the face brushes the Luxe Sheer Cheek one has to be my favourite. Angled brushes are great multitaskers and this has the optimum density and texture to work with both pigmented and sheer powder brushes. Previously I would use the bdellium tools 942; this Zoeva one puts that in the shade. I also really appreciate the handle lenght of the face brushes. If you're blind without your glasses like me and have to get right up to the mirror you understand the need for short handle brushes.
I really can't decide which is my favourite eye brush. The Luxe Petit Crease and Luxe Soft Definer have quickly become my go tos.
While I've never used this set solely to complete a full face - I have too many brushes - it surely is possible.
The packaging of this set surely is what draws all the attention. Rose Gold was the new black last year and Zoeva capitalized on the trend. But this prettiness isn't all for show; the brushes are constructed very well. In six months I've seen no shedding and no loose ferrules. The ferrules haven't tarnished and the handles aren't dinged up. The writing on them haven't worn off either - they're etched into the handles.
The icing on the cake is the 'Brush Clutch Large'.
Whose brilliant idea was this? Like the brushes, the clutch is sturdy and well made. The zipper compartment runs almost the full depth of the bag. Absolutely perfect for on-the-go and especially for travel. If the colour or construction on the brushes didn't sell you this bag certainly will.
The Rose Golden Luxury Set retails for 54.62EUR before taxes. With taxes and shipping I mightta paid $90USD. I think it's worth it.
