Hi loves, another haul post today! It seems like I have been shopping a lot but I promise I haven’t, I picked up a few pieces when I went to UMAE and as I promised, I thought I would share it with you all. Today it is my Zoeva haul, Zoeva is a brand I have been meaning to try out for a while now but I never really saw any of their products in person so I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to pick bits up or not. However when I went to UMAE, they were at the Love Makeup stand and I just couldn’t resist.
I thought I would start off with the brushes I picked up, after all Zoeva are known for their brushes. I was really tempted to pick up their Rose Golden Complete Eye Set but I knew I wouldn’t use all the brushes so I behaved and resisted the temptation to take it to the checkout till! Instead picked up the following brushes: 110 Face Shape Brush, 142 Concealer Buffer and the 228 Luxe Crease. It was actually David Horne who introduced me to the Face Shape Brush, he used it whilst he applied his GlamBase Wheel (find my review here). I absolutely loved the ‘bounce’ of the brush and just how good it was at both applying and blending product. The Concealer Buffer brush reminded me so much of the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease brush which I use pretty much every day to blend my concealer. I’ve now been using the Zoeva version and I have to admit, I may just love it more! I picked the Luxe Crease brush as I have a thing for amazing blending brushes and this one is particular looked pretty special. I’ve used it a couple of times already and my initial observation was pretty good, I love how good this is for blending!
I had no idea Zoeva did makeup, did you?! It wasn’t till I saw it in person that I cottoned on, all this time I just assumed they were a brush company. Recently I have been looking for a creamy warm dark brown pencil liner as I love using that type of shade on my bottom lash line. I have some plain pencils but I wanted something with a little ‘oomph’ to it and the Zoeva Graphic Eyes Pencil in Rock ‘N’ Roll provided just that. The consistency and product itself reminded me a lot of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils, but just at a much cheaper price range. It sets quickly and doesn’t budge which is exactly what I need for a long day at the office. The colour itself is a dark brown with beautiful red and pink glitter which is such an unusual combination. It is a subtle sparkle and not too glittery, so it is very wearable. It is easy to smudge before it sets and is a great colour to add definition to my eyes without being as harsh as a black shade would be. It retails for £5.50 here and I would definitely recommend it.
I hope you liked my Zoeva haul, it wasn’t a huge one but I have to admit I have caught the Zoeva bug and am tempted to pick up one of the sets! For those of you who were in my shoes, unsure whether to take the plunge, I would recommend that you do as they really are good quality brushes at a very good price point. I am very happy to report that my very first Zoeva haul was a successful one! Speak to you soon, Tanzina x
