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.

p.s. the 106 Powder brush is for sale in The Marketplace. There's nothing wrong with, it's just that it's similar to my Sedona Lace 980. And that puts the work in so why not let this one find another home right?

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.
