I’m a brush snob. There, I’ve said it. I can’t help it. I’m addicted to expensive, difficult to find makeup brushes. Most of my makeup brushes for work are from Hakuhodo. They are the brushes of brushes. My models and clients always ooh and ahh over how fluffy, white and soft they all are. I look down upon all brushes that are not this fluffy, white or soft. I was a little flummoxed when I was introduced to some deliciously soft and very well cut brushes recently only to be told that the most expensive one was £17.50. It looked *very* similar to my £80 Hakuhodo. Suddenly my snobbery seemed somewhat misguided.
And thus I have a new addiction. Zoeva. The brushes feel lovely, they look lovely and they’re amazingly well thought out when it comes to cut and texture. My favourite bit has to be how they’re presented, though. When you buy a set, they come in these gorgeously luxurious makeup bags. I’m dying to fill mine up and put it in my handbag! It’s just so pretty. There is also a rose gold set of brushes that you would just die for if you saw them. The rose gold trim makes them almost too pretty to use.
Now brushes aren’t the only thing in the range anymore. There have been some makeup additions recently as well. I got to try a bunch of them out and there wasn’t anything I wasn’t impressed with. These awesome eyeliners are my new favourites. They’re a gel texture and are waterproof. You get some brief time to smudge, shape and mush into how you want and then they’re set for the day. This is the blackest of black eyeliners I’ve tried in pencil form. It’s going immediately into my kit. I also love how sleek and polished everything is. No frou frou here, my friends!
Zoeva isn’t available in stores in the UK just yet but you can go to Love Makeup to check it out and have a look. You’ll be really glad you did!
