My ZOEVA brushes!

Here we go again,

So 3 months ago my Zoeva haul (click link to see) arrived, including the Zoeva basic brush set and today I'm gonna review them for you ^^

Zoeva Basic Brush Set:

This is the whole set with all kind of brushes, for face, eyes and lips.

It comes along in a very nice leather bag! Very pefect when you are on a trip.

The brushes are all handmade and very handy! I couldn't figure out if they are vegan or not because I know that some of the Zoeva brush sets are vegan but they're not mentioning it for this set so I'll guess we'll never know. I ordered the set in this SHOP for 20€.

For the FACE:

Foundation brush: I really LOVE this brush, when I used this brush for the first time I thought I could throw away the other foundation burshes I have. It's perfect for liquid foundation. The fine fibers are synthetical which leads to a perfect absorbation of the foundation and so the brush can apply it very easily and even on the face.

Blush brush: The distorted shape of this blush brush hair applies the blush right under the cheeks, exactly where it should be.

Powder brush: Not too big and not too small. Just the perfect size. I must be honest I haven'tused this brush much but that doesn't mean it's not good, I'm just not a big powder user.

Fan brush: So you probably think now what the hell is this kind of a brush for! Let me tell you if you don't have on of these fan brushes than you're missing on something really great. You can find them like this one in a thin version but there are also some thicker ones out there. All I can say about the one I owe is that this is probably my FAVORITE brush from this set!!! You can use it to apply blush on your cheeks, highlighter under your eyes and cheeks or you can use it when you want to remove eyeshadaw that landed from your eyelids under your eyes. I often use this fan brush to apply my Bobby Brown mixted shimmer blush as you can see HERE.

For the EYES:

Eye blender brush: I use it to blend two colors one into the other, or to just blend out one color on my lid to take away the heaviness of the color and make it look more decent.

Shader brush: As the name is saying it, this brush is good for applying eyeshadow on the lid. I don't use it much because I think it's a bit too small when you want to apply eyeshadow on the whole lid. But it works also perfectly for inner corners.

Crease brush: So you use it to apply eyeshadow only in your crease. It works also as a blender brush.

Smudger brush: I use this to apply eyeshadow on the whole lid. It's not an extraordinary brush. Also kind of works as blending brush.

From L to R agian: Smudgher brush; Crease brush; Shader brush & Eye blender brush!

Let's move to the duo brushes:

which means they are two sides brushes.

Lash/Eyebrow brush: the lash brush is for a lash line and the brow brush is to brush your brows.

Duo cream liner brush: you have one end that is more straight and the other end is rounder. So these are for cream liners!

Duo cream shader brush: Both ends are pretty much the same, the only difference is the size of them. One is a bit bigger than the other. So these are really perfect for cream eye shadows. They don't glue together as soon the cream shadow is on them and they can even blend them which is really difficult if you use cream shadows because of there difficult formula.

For the LIPS:

Lip brush: The brush is in the black case and you can take it out and use it like this as a short lip brush or you can put the black case on the end of the lip brush like on the picture under here and have a longer lip brush, just the way you prefer it. ^^

I think this brush goes very pretty along with the Zoeva Sweet Love Palette!


I haven't used many of them, 3 or 4 maybe so far but they are great. I love the big choice of colors, for every tipe of skin either you are far or darker :)

So these are all of the brushes I owe, it's a mix of many different brands:

I owe you a Real Techniques brushes review and a post about my Zoeva Metallic Stones palette ;) haven't forgotten about that and I promise it will come soon, just need to find some more time!!!

Thanks for reading and commenting! :)

    1. Me too! They are hard to find!!! Which one do you like to use? ^^

  3. Hello dear, where did you find the brush? I live in London and I want to get all of them.
    Thanks and regards

    1. Hello! Sorry for the late reply, your mail landed in my spam which is strange. So I ordered the Zoeva brushes on the official Zoeva store, which is linked above just click on SHOP!!!!! And if you wonder about the Real Techniques brushes they are available on I think (just google it) or I heard that you can also get them at the Boots UK Victoria Centre in Nottingham ;) since you live in London that should be the easiest way for you to get them!
