Zoeva Rose Gold Luxe Brushes Review

I have literally never waited so long for something I wanted to buy this badly. 

It's happened. 

I got my Zoeva's!!!!!!!!!

Beautybay had these around eight weeks ago. I had them perched in my basket, ready to press pay on payday the next morning. Payday morning came, and they had sold out. I was literally devastated. They remained out of stock all this time and when they came back in on Thursday, they sold out again within the hour. 

I was lucky enough to get a 10% off code from a friend the same day. 

I have ordered the matching eye brushes set directly from Zoeva, so I plan to post a comparison about my shopping experience. 

So, from BeautyBay, these were £56.95. Orders over £30 are free next day delivery. Orders over £50 include your choice of a free luxury beauty gift. I chose the Mario Badescu Rosewater cleansing duo. 

With 10% off, my order was £51.25 in total for the brush set. Free shipping, arrived next working day. 

The thing is, ordering these directly from Zoeva still isn't that extortionate in price. I know a lot of people desperately want these, and won't buy them unless Beautybay restock, because they are put off by the shipping charge. But honestly, the brush set itself is cheaper from Zoeva than it is on Beautybay. Only by £1. It's £55, and £7.50 shipping. Which is a bit more. And definitely not next day delivery, as they come from Germany. So if you can get them on Beautybay, it's a massive bonus but even at £62 these brushes are worth it, I swear. 

There are 8 brushes in total. 5 face brushes and three eye brushes. They come in this beautiful leather clutch with rose gold detailing. They are super soft and honestly, the application is flawless. I can't fault them for a second. 

My favourites from this set are the 110 Face Shape which I use for concealer buffing and the 102 Silk Finish I use for foundation application. 

I love that the brush name and number are embossed on the handle! 

My second haul, was directly from Zoeva. You can change the language and currency on their page to suit you. In British pounds this order cost me £73.50. 

Rose Gold Eye Set- £55
Face Paint brush- £11

Postage- £7.50 

I ordered the Rose Gold Luxe Eye set and the 109 face paint brush. 

Zoeva take so much care over the packaging it's insane. They took under a week to come from Germany and provided precise tracking through DHL. 

They came in a branded box, and were packed out with SO much bubble wrap. Probably a bit unnessasary but it did make me feel they really care that their products arrive in good condition. 

They come with care cards, and a note telling you who packed your order. Mine was done by Anya, so cheers for that Anya! Lol. 

The brushes are wrapped in Zoeva printed tissue. 

They again come in a lovely leather pouch...and the face paint brush also had it's own little pouch. 

I also love that every brush has this little silicone protector around the bristles. 

Between the two sets, there are four brushes that are doubled if you buy both. 

The concealer buffer, petite crease, soft definer and wing liner come in both sets. 

I am in love with literally every single brush. The Luxe set has every brush you could need for daily makeup and the eye set has everything you could want for a range of looks. I can't wait to find a use for all of them. 

The only thing the set may be missing is a lip brush. But to be honest, it's not something I ever use, and I have real techniques and sigma ones for that if I ever did. 

The face paint brush isn't from the Rose Gold collection, just the standard one but it's also lovely. Made for contouring, it has short, stubby bristles in a horizontal stem. 

These aren't overly dense, so are great for a soft but defined contour, and are so soft and flexible that they are also great for then blending out the contour lines. 

Beautybay pro's were the free next day delivery, the slight discount and the free gift. 

Zoeva pros were that they did come with just a little bit of extra special care in the packaging and the brushes themselves were cheaper. The shipping costs are a downside, but if you are buying a selection of brushes, or you team up with friends looking to buy from them, you can make it good value. 

Feeling very smug and very blessed to own these beautiful brushes! Would highly, highly reccomend checking them out!
