Lets talk brushes | Zoeva

I feel like the makeup brush world has gone a little wild over the festive period. Many of us recieved gorgeous brush sets from Santa and then Real Techniques went and threw out there that they were releasing 7 new precious range called the 'Bold Metals collection' and there's no denying that they're super beautiful in colour and shape and everything. As a lover of real techniques I can't deny that I wasn't expecting them to be quite as pricey as they are. In the beauty world, Real Techniques are our budget brand. Picking up a collection of 4 e.g core collection for just over twenty pounds was great! Were as in this new line, if it was that you wanted 4 of the face ones you would be £64.20 down. Eeeek, high end prices. However, having said that, they do look such amazing quality and I really want to try some out so bad.

I was on a little Beauty Bay splurge (FYI, amazing website, so many brands) and I was checking out the Zoeva section and hey presto, I ended up ordering some. Zoeva are a brand that for some reason before I did some research I regarded as super expensive. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't say they were really cheap but they're at least reasonble. I went a head and picked two. When they were delievered they came in sleek little packets with brush guards on. I chose the 110 Face Shaper brush and the 104 Buffer brush. 

Review time. Me and my 110 have been getting along so well I pratically haven't put it down. This brush is designed for precision and detailed contouring of the face (or where ever you please). It cost me only £8.95 which is so super cheap for the quality. I have never had a softer brush. This brush is vegan friendly. It has became my ulimate tool for blending my contour to leave to harsh edges. When I first got it I thought that it would be too small but its perfect to slip into the hollows of my cheeks. Love, love, love. if you've read my previous review of the Anastasia Contour Kit you will know that the Zoeva 110 and those powders are the perfect duo. They lead to the perfect killer cheek bone.

Next up is the more popular 104. I've never had a brush quite this shape before, I've had the buffer brush from Real Techniques which is lovely however this one seems to have a quality that makes my foundation blend right into my skin.The density of the brush allows you to buff right into your skin to avoid those dreaded lines. Again, this brush is vegan, the bristles are actually made from Taklon. This means that when you are applying your makeup you can go for anything from a liquid to a powder and the brush will not absorb the product *woop*. This brush cost me £12.95 and is 100% worth the money. 

If you're thinking about picking some of these up I definitely recommend Beauty Bay they had my products on my door step on time which I am so greatful for. 


  1. Ohh I love the softness and thickness of the bristles on these Brushes! ^ ^

  2. I've heard such good things about these brushes and your review has made me want to try them even more - the 110 sounds perfect!
