Zoeva Rose Golden Eye Set | Review

Zoeva Rose Golden Eye Set*

Have you ever seen a set of make-up brushes this beautiful?! The rose gold packaging, the crisp white bristles, the cute little box it comes in… Zoeva, you know the way to a blogger’s heart.

I will never forget the day I ditched my sponge applicators for a real set of make-up brushes. Without sounding dramatic, it really was the day my make-up game changed. Gone are the traumas of patchy foundation and unblended eyeshadow.  Give the artist the right tools and she can create a masterpiece. Give her an eyeshadow kit with a foam brush and, well, you get my failed smokey eye photos circa 2010.

Zoeva are my go-to brand for make-up brushes now as 1) IMO they are just are on par (if not better than) MAC, 2) amazing quality and 3) have no ridiculous shipping/ tax/ importing fees. We don’t have a whole lot of options for high quality brushes here in the UK. There’s the extremely expensive high end options then the low end but nothing really in between. It’s either stick with Real Techniques, shell out £20 a brush at MAC or order online. Zoeva are only about £7.50 shipping fees which to me is worth it given that these brushes work out to barely £4 each in this set. I reach for the 227 blending brush over my MAC 217 which cost me a crazy £17.

So, not only do these brushes look dreamy on my vanity, but they really do the job. Thanks to these brushes I can really get the make-up looks that I want and have complete control over application and blending. You have everything you need (and more) in this kit. My absolute favourites are the 227 for seamless blending, the 231 for packing on colour right into the outer v, and the 238 which allows you to have total accuracy for smoking out the eye with a tiny bit of dark matte shadow. Also, the 332 brow line is one of my favourite brushes – ever – for defining and highlighting my brow bone. It really does take your make-up to the next level.

Overall I can’t recommend this kit enough to anyone who wants to up their eyeshadow game. At £50 for 12 brushes it’s incredible value compared to high end brands and definitely rivals them in quality. I couldn’t imagine doing my make-up without it now.

Have you tried this? Are you a fan of Zoeva?

    I totally agree Zoeva do the BEST affordable eye brushes, not to mention the most beautiful… I have both the original rose gold sets but neither of the eye ones. I may need to invest 😉 xx

    These are so pretty! The rose gold detail and white bristles makes them appear so luxurious, yet they're so affordable… I may need to purchase some as this post alone is enough persuasion!xx

    So are all these brushes JUST for your eyes? Haha I'm a shame to the blogger world I wouldn't know what to do with half of them haha! The Zoeva brushes look great though, who doesn't fall for cute packaging? Especially when it is rose gold <3

    I NEED THESE BRUSHES! They are insanely so perfect and bonus, rose gold. Don't they come with bigger ones (for your foundation, blush) in this set?

    They are so beautiful! But I just splurged on real techniques brushes, and as they are still in perfect condition I have no reason to buy new brushes. But one day, one day I will definitely try these out! Thanks for the great post!
    I will definitely share this with the community of beauty lovers on an app called Veleza! https://veleza.com
