Ebay Zoeva Dupe Eye Brush Set

Hey All

Last year for my birthday I got the Zoeva Complete Eye Brush Set (full review here), I instantly fell in love and was blown away by the quality of them and brushes I never knew I needed. I'd previously ordered a few ebay (review here) that I loved and still use now so when Make Up Savvy (one of L and I's favourite bloggers, her ebay bargains posts are the one!) shared this set I thought I'd see how it compared, and it comes in rose gold so looks pretty.

Zoeva Complete Eye Brush Set Review

Hey All

A few months ago it was my birthday and one of the things I asked for was the Zoeva Complete Eye Brush set. I'd wanted it for ages but parting with £60 at one time was something I couldn't face doing. I thought I'd review them as since I've got them I absolutely love them and reach for them over all my other eye brushes! One thing to note is although Zoeva don't test their products on animals this isn't a vegan suitable set as the brushes are a mixture of natural and synthetic bristles. They do do a range of vegan brushes though so in future I would only get these ones.

The set itself contains 12 brushes (I'm missing one in my photographs as I'd lost it at the time!) and comes in a good quality make up bag. So even though they are pricey for the set it only works out at £5 a brush. For the brushes singularly they vary from between £8-£9 ish! I'll definitely be purchasing more Zoeva brushes!

For me there are two amazing brushes I reach for daily. They're the brow line brush (I never knew I needed this until I had it. It's amazing for concealer to makes your brows look really sharp!) and the Luxe defined crease. This brush wasn't one I expected to love as it's not densly packed with bristles but it just makes blending a dream!

The brush not pictured is the fine liner brush. I love this, it makes winged liner with eyeshadow so easy as it's bent and very precise. I've been using it with shadows so I can experiment with different coloured winged liner.

For me I use most of the brushes daily. They may eyemake up looks so easy! The pencil is perfect for getting that inner corner liner, the smudger makes it easy to put eyeshadow under the lower lashes. All of the crease brushes make blending a dream and allow me to really focus colour on certain areas! I'm pretty sure they've made my make up application better. I haven't really used three brushes from the set yet, these are the wing liner brush (I don't currently have gel liner so think I'd use it if I had one) the detail shader and the concealer brush!

I've listed below what categories the brushes fall into. Zoeva do sell crease and blend brushes that are synthetic! I would grab these next time. 

Synthetic Brushes in the Set (vegan)

  • Smudger Brush
  • Fine Liner Brush
  • Wing Linger Brush
  • Browline Brush (my absolute favourite!!)
  • Concealer and Buffer Brush

Natural haired brushes

  • Luxe Defined Crease Brush
  • Soft Definer Brush
  • Pencil Brush
  • Petit Crease Brush
  • Smokey Shader Brush
  • Detail Shader Brush
  • Crease Brush
After trying these I feel like I need the face set now too! Maybe one for the Christmas list!! Have you tried the Zoeva brushes? They're definitely worth the hype for me.

My mum got me these from Beauty bay and one brush was a little damaged but they were so quick to replace it for me I just thought I'd mention as I think great customer service deserves recognition!

Hey there!

I've not written a wishlist for a ridiculous amount of time, which is quite funny as I can't afford to buy anything but still want everything.

So without further rambling, here is what's on my wishlist right now:

Lorna Jane - Everything!

I've seen and heard a lot about Lorna Jane, one day I will own such beauties!

Above are the Storm Core Ankle Biter Tights, and they are wonderful. You can view them on the Active in Style site by clicking here for £63.

I've also got my eye on this bra:

It's the Lumineer Sports Bra and comes in at £46.

I absolutely love the design with the subtle print and the cross back, its gorgeous and functional and I need it in my fitness bag. It might make me run faster right? Right.

Zoeva - Rose Golden Vol. 2 Brush Sets

Who doesn't love rose gold? And who doesn't love brush sets?

Which is why it is so hard to ignore these beauties, I picked two sets as I couldn't choose one!

Both of these sets cost £65 each which for brushes of this variety and quality is quite good. And they're pretty! I think i could always do with more brushes generally but the eye brush set is probably the number one priority for me, I never seem to have enough and there's such a good variety there I want to test them all out.

It's unlikely I will ever buy these for myself so I think it's safe to say they will be staying on my wishlist for a while, but if some money does come my way some time soon I will be running to Beauty Bay to snap them up.

Rebecca Stella Squad Palette

Rebecca Stella hasn't really popped up on my radar before, but with my new found love for YouTube I saw the Squad Palette on 'Meg Says' and wow isn't it the dream??

I love the matte colours and can see they would be used a lot for day wear. There's even one with a slight shimmer for a highlight and the best part?

This brand is totally cruelty free! M has been super conscious of this now she has her bunnies and it is always better to buy from a brand that doesn't test on animals so we are actively trying to learn more.

When brands like this produce lovely palettes like this why would you get anything that had been tested on an animal?!

You can browse Rebecca Stella on her website here, the Squad Palette is £32 (They also have a contour palette.....eeek!)

Nike - LunarGlide 7 MP - £115

There's not really much to be said about these absolutely gorgeous and super wonderful running trainers.....apart from, drool with me.
