Review: Zoeva Defined Buffer & Luxe Soft Crease Brushes

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Hello ladies, 
first of all I would like to apologize for the slight delay of the start of this Blogmas week. I got really sick on Sunday and felt like crap until yesterday so blogging was the last thing on my mind.
But I'm back now and I'm really excited to share my review on my first (but definitely not last) two Zoeva brushes with you.

Zoeva brushes have been on my wishlist for quite some time, but I never got around of actually ordering some. 
Recently they really blew up and became famous due to all the 'big' Youtubers and Bloggers mentioning them, and when Anja from Moja Drogerija offered us a 30% off discount, I of course had to order some.
At first I wanted to get the Silk Finish brush (you can see Taya's review here), but it was sold out, so I decided to get the 103 Defined Buffer and 221 Luxe Soft Crease instead.

Both brushes came packaged in a plastic zip-lock bag which I actually really like, since I tend to save these bags and use them for different things whenever I go travelling.
Both brushes have a black wooden handle with silver details; both of them have engraved Zoeva logo, their name and I especially love the added 'Color. Love. Makeup' slogan.

Danes imam za vas pripravljeno oceno dveh Zoeva čopičev, saj nam je Anja ponudila enkratno kodo za 30% popust. Čopiča sta prišla zapakirana v plastični zip-lock vrečki. 
Držali čopiča sta črni in leseni s srebrnimi detajli, ki vsebujejo ime čopiča in logo znamke.

103 Defined Buffer is an angled foundation brush and I bought it because I always wanted to try the oh-so-famous Sigma F88.
The handle of the brush is quite thick, it's actually the same size as the Real Techniques Buffing brush.
The bristles are extremely soft, and on the Zoeva site it says that they're vegan taklon bristles. They are very thin, but they're packed extremely closely together so the brush is very dense. You can see the comparison with the RT Buffing Brush below.
They feel and look very high quality, and although I've washed the brush quite a few times already, I haven't noticed any bristles falling out or loosing shape. The brush is also really easy to wash and it dries quickly. 
Applying any kind of foundation with this brush is a complete dream. You only need a small amount of product to get a flawless yet natural-looking finish. It buffs the foundation in like no other, and it doesn't leave any streaks like the RT Buffing Brush occasionally does.
I absolutely love the fact that it's angled; it fits perfectly into the contours of my face, e.g. under the eyes, around my nose and mouth, in-between my brows. 
What I'm trying to say is, that this is better than all the foundation brushes that I've tried and I haven't used anything other than this brush to apply my foundation since I got it.
International readers can get it on Zoeva site for 12,80€ and Slovenian readers on Moja Drogerija for 16,78€.

103 Defined Buffer je poševno oblikovan čopič za nanašanje podlage. 
Narejen je iz veganskih taklonskih vlaken, ki so zelo mehka in tanka, a so združena zelo blizu skupaj, zato je čopič ekstremno gost oz. kompakten (dense). 
Z lahkoto se umije, hitro posuši, opazila pa nisem nobenega izpadanja vlaken.
Nanos katerekoli podlage je s tem čopičem naravnost sanjski; ne pušča nobenih sledi vlaken in že z zelo majhno količino podlage ustvari prekriven nanos, ki izgleda zelo naravno. 
Ker je oblikovan poševno je še toliko bolj izvrsten za nanos podlage pod očmi, okoli nosu, ustnic in med obrvmi. 
Čopič lahko kupite na strani Moje Drogerije za 16,78€.

221 Luxe Soft Crease looked like a smaller blending brush and since you can never have enough of blending brushes, I decided to give it a go.
The bristles are supposedly made out of finest natural-synthetic hair mix and are once again, really easy to wash, don't shed and dry quickly.
Both of these brushes have the softest bristles that I have ever tried, and are without a doubt the softest brushes in my collection.
It's thinner, fluffier and more tapered than the MAC 217 (see below) and because of this, it fits perfectly into my smaller crease.
It packs on eyeshadows really nicely, it's also not just amazing at defining the crease and outer v area, but also works great for blending. 
Although I used to swear by the MAC 217, I actually think that this one is even slightly better. Especially if you have slightly hooded eyes. 
This one retails for 7,80€ or for 10,22€ on Moja Drogerija.

221 Luxe Soft Crease čopič je narejen iz mešanice naravnih in sintetičnih vlaken.
Tudi ta je ekstremno mehak, se z lahkoto umije in hitro posuši brez izpadanja vlaken.
Je bolj ozek, bolj puhast in koničast kot MAC 217. Zaradi tega se popolnoma prilega v gubo moje veke. 
Izjemen je za definiranje, prav tako pa tudi za zabrisovanje senčil.
Čeprav sem pred tem prisegala na MAC 217 moram priznati, da mi je Luxe Soft Crease še ljubši in je definitivno postal nepogrešljiv čopič v moji zbirki.
Na Moji Drogeriji ga lahko kupite za 10,22€.

All in all, I was extremely impressed by these two brushes and they're a great addition to my brush collection, or to any brush collection really. Now I'm definitely saving up and buying a whole set of Zoeva brushes in the near future.

What's your favourite Zoeva brush?
