Doesn’t it feel so good when you know you’ve loved a product/brand even before the blogger hype? Well, I’ve been enjoying using Zoeva products since what feels like forever. I’ve mentioned their brushes multiple times here in the past so I thought I would do a little update on those I use and love the most.
Zoeva 102 Silk Finish – is basically the only foundation brush I use. Before it came to my life I liked the RT Buffing brush which is very similar but delivers a different finish. As the title suggest, 102 Silk Finish gives the most lovely naturally satin finish with a bit less coverage. It can be used almost as a 2 in 1, to spread the foundation like a classic flat brush and blend it properly like a buffing brush. The only annoying thing about it is the cleaning. It’s so dense I have to clean it in two steps. First with a MAC Brush Cleanser and then with a classic soap on my IKEA textured glove.
*Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight – is obviously a highlight brush, and it does the job well, but I use it everyday for powdering. It’s the perfect size for me to get the powder only where I need it (chin, nose, under eyes and the center of my forehead). Plus is also really great for contouring. That being said it looks like I need another one of these.
Zoeva 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek – has been my favourite bronzer and blusher blush for years. It really is the perfect size and the angled shape fits the contours of my face. It contains natural bristles (as all of the white bristled brushes) that pick up the right amount powder and blends it beautifully. If you’ve ever had a problem with your blush brush not picking up enough product you definitely have to try a natural bristled one.
Zoeva 221 Luxe Soft Crease and Zoeva 227 Luxe Soft Definer – are absolute winners when it comes to eyeshadows brushes. They both are much softer than for example 3 times more expensive MAC 217 and you can definitely feel it on the delicate skin around the eyes. 227 is more flat and a bit bigger so it’s great for packing on the eyeshadow and/or blending larger areas. 221 is perfect for crease work and precise blending.
Zoeva 312 Detail liner – is the only eyeliner brush I’ve ever tried that is thin enough to achieve photo-ready sharp edges and wings. It’s obviously not great when you want to do a really thick line using only one brush for that. But I love pairing it together with a regular eyeliner (I’ve been obsessed with the Marc Jacobs Highlighers for the last couple of weeks) and using it only for sharpening the edges.
