Some new brush additions

After coveting these brushes for months and months and them continuing to be out of stock I had given up all hope of getting my hands on them. But my luck was in when I was perusing the site late one night and spotted that the Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set had finally been re-stocked and I ordered with a second thought. I remain pretty loyal to my make up brushes as I do see them as quite an investment and Real Techniques have reigned supreme for years in my routine so I was quite skeptical of giving some new ones a try. These Zoeva brushes are both natural and synthetic hairs so they are incredibly soft and seem to wash really well and keep their shape. They arrived in this lovely little bag that I've been using to store all my beauty bits in my handbag all in one place. The design is what drew me to them and lets be honest here they are absolutely stunning and I've not been disappointed with the quality either.

The face brushes have been a complete hit with me especially the 102 Silk Finish110 Face Shape and I've been using the 102 for applying my foundation and it buffs everything in so quickly whilst providing an airbrushed finish. The 110 has been absolutely perfect for concealer and blends within seconds, I've been using the 142 Concealer Buffer for my under eye concealer as it works better being that touch smaller. For my powder I've been using the 106 Powder which is just the right size for me as I don't like huge brushes as I don't like to apply powder all over my face just in select areas.  The 224 Luxe Defined Crease seems like it would be a dupe for the MAC 217 and I've been using this to wash colour all over the lid and it blends like a dream. 

I was pretty disappointed with the 317 Wing Liner as I was hoping this would work as a new angled brush for my brows but it isn't as firm as I had hoped. I have a feeling it would work really well for winged liner though like the name suggests it is just a shame it couldn't be used for something more. I've been struggling to find a use for the 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek brush as it isn't dense enough for blush so can make the colour appear quite wishy washy and it is just a little large to use for highlighter. Another brush I'm struggling to find a use for is the 231 Petit Crease as it just seems too precise for applying colour to the crease and blending out, although now I'm thinking about it I could use it for pin point concealing. 

Have you tried any Zoeva brushes?
