I am sure you’ve all heard about the oh-so-gorgeous Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set by now. These little gems have taken over the beauty world 2 years ago, I don’t really know why it took me so long to jump on the bandwagon, maybe because those brushes were a bit too expensive for my liking at the time, but let me tell you, it is one of my favourite brush set ever! So here’s my review of the Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set review.
In all honesty all brushes have beautiful quality, perform incredibly well and the stunning design is everything a rose gold lover could ever dream of. They are super soft, easy to control, apply and blend products beautifully, wash well and have an amazing luxury feel to them. They definitely measure up to my MAC bad boys but are basically a fraction of the price. The Rose Golden set comes with eight brushes (five for face & three for eyes) and are made with both natural and synthetic taklon bristles. The brushes are housed in a gorgeous faux leather travel bag, which is such a lovely touch.
106 / Powder
This brush is designed to make the application of both loose and pressed powder a breeze. However, due to its somewhat longer, too flexible and pointed bristles I don’t find that it actually works as good for all over setting powder application – it just doesn’t seem to be doing much for me. I do love it for dusting bronzer down my neck or with my Guerlain Meteorites though. It disturbs the product evenly and I love how ridiculously soft and gentle it is.
102 / Silk Finish
It is definitely my favorite brush of the bunch and I adore the way it applies and blends my liquid foundation. It offers the quickest and easiest application and the results blow me away every time – even high coverage, natural-looking flawless finish that looks as if I’ve spent hours airbrushing my skin of Photoshop. Big thumbs up and it’s not only the softest brush I’ve stumbled upon but I also love that it picks up the perfect amount of product without wasting tons of foundation. Definitely one to check out ladies!
110 / Face Shape
This baby is the mini version of Silk Finish and it could be used for more precise makeup application or for contouring. I mainly use it for the latter and it creates the perfect shadow under my cheekbones, especially used with cream bronzer (Bourjois Bronzing Primer or Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel work a treat). Again, it is uber soft and blends product seamlessly. Love.
127 / Luxe Sheer Cheek
This angled shape godsend brush is made with the softest natural bristles and packs all the right amounts of color. It is practically a dupe for the MAC 168 and it hugs the cheekbones perfectly, making it an ideal companion for the application of your favorite blush, bronzer and highlight. Luxe Sheer Cheek turns my cheekbones from almost non-existent to oh-so-high and modelesque on the spot. The only reason this baby comes second after Silk Finish in my favorites list though is because it tends to shed a bit but apart from that it rocks and I couldn’t recommend it enough.
142 / Concealer Buffer
I used to apply concealer with my finger (or my Beautyblender) but this brush is a real game changer! This brush works miracles,and blends concealer so seamlessly!
227 / Luxe Soft Definer
It is easily the best eyeshadow brush I own and it is such a little mulitasker – it is the perfect crease brush and I love how beautifully it packs and blends out color whilst being really gentle. Bye bye harsh lines, hello professional eye makeup application!
231 / Luxe Petite Crease
I am yet to fall head over heels in love with this brush but I can imagine that if you are a serious smokey eye wearer you’ll adore this. Petite Crease is a tiny tapered crease brush and helps you accentuate the socket, create very defined crease and outer V. Since smokey eye and I meet at rare occasions, I tend to use Petite Crease for applying eyeshadow under my lower lash line or placing some in the inner corner of my eye for some brightening effect.
317 / Wing Liner
Out of all brushes in the set, Wing Liner is the brush that gets the least use from me. I was hoping that this lil’ angled brush would be my brows’ new best friend but because of the fact that its bristles are too long and bendy the brush lacks precision and it’s not ideal for brows. However, if you’re a gel eyeliner type a gal (unfortunately I like my liquid liner better) this baby will help you nail the perfect cat eye, creating precise line and beautiful flick. It’s tried and tested.
Have you tried any of the brushes in this set? Which one would you like to try?
