Price: €60 * Buy At: Zoeva's Website
The Zoeva Complete Eye Set contains twelve eye brushes and a small black case. In case you are not familiar with Zoeva, it is a German company that specializes in makeup brushes. The prices are somewhat similar to Sigma, but Zoeva is more affordable which sort of makes up for the ridiculous shipping price I had to pay. If I put all the pictures of all twelve brushes in this one post, it would be ginormous, so I am splitting my review of the Complete Eye Set into three parts, this one of course is the first part. You can find my reviews of the other brushes by clicking on the links at the top of this post!
The Complete Eye Set brushes are made of both synthetic and natural bristles, but the brush description does not specify which are which. The following descriptions come from the Zoeva website: "224 Luxe Defined Crease: Create smooth eye shadow transitions, 226 Smudger: Smudge eye shadow and kohl along the lashline, 227 Soft Definer: Softly blend and smooth eye shadow, 228 Crease: Blending and shading eye shadow in the crease, 230 Pencil: Precise shading and smoothing edges, 231 Petit Crease: Accentuating and blending in the crease, 234 Smoky Shader: Shading and blending with smoky effect, 237 Detail Shader: Detailed application of eye shadow, 315 Fine Liner: Apply eyeliner in delicate strokes, 317 Wing Liner: Detailed eyeliner strokes and a perfect wing, 322 Brow Line: Eyebrow brush for powder and cream products, 142 Concealer Buffer: Apply and blend concealer."
227 Luxe Soft Definer Brush
The 227 Luxe Soft Definer Brush is a flat, but fluffy brush that can be used in many different places on the eyes. It is similar to the very popular Sigma E25 brush, but there are noticeable differences. The Soft Definer Brush has longer, denser bristles than the E25, but the shape and function is quite similar. You could use this brush for applying brow bone highlight, lid color and crease color, but I prefer using it in the crease.
142 Concealer Buffer Brush
The 142 Concealer Buffer Brush is a large, dense dome shaped brush. I use this brush quite often to blend out the concealer that I sometimes use to prime my eyes. Despite the brush being pretty dense, it doesn't feel irritating on the skin and I don't find it to pull on my eye lids too much. Although this brush was included in the eye brush set, I can't really think of anyway to use it with eye shadow.
315 Fine Liner Brush
The 315 Fine Liner Brush is a thin and pointed liner brush with a bend in the ferrule. The brush is quite fine, so it has quickly become my go to brush for applying gel eye liner. Luckily, I have not experienced any of the bristles splaying, so the brush continues to work great for applying a clean and sharp line. The Fine Liner Brush isn't flimsy, but it also isn't too firm so it gives a little bit when in use.
234 Luxe Smoky Shader Brush
The 234 Luxe Smoky Shader brush is a classic shadow shading brush with a rounded tip. The brush is made of dense, silky bristles that are perfect for packing color onto the lids. I don't particularly find it to work better than any other shading brush that I own, but it gets the job done.
