Zoeva Makeup Brushes

I first heard about Zoeva brushes after reading Lydia's blog post on them! Before that I had never heard of the brand, but I am so glad I finally found them.

Zoeva are a German company and they sell very affordable makeup brushes (as well as makeup itself, but I haven't tried any!)

L - R: Buffer 104, Powder 106, Petit Stippling 122, Crease 228

I ordered four brushes which are the buffer brush, powder brush, petite stippling brush and crease brush.


I use the buffer brush for my foundation. I used to use my Real Techniques buffing brush which I still absolutely love and now use for tinted moisturiser, however the Zoeva Buffer brush has definitely taken over for applying foundation.

The bristles of the buffer brush are dense and compact whilst still being extremely soft on the face. The top of this brush is quite flat and it buffs my foundation onto my skin flawlessly and so easily.


The powder brush is probably my favourite brush ever! It is so incredibly soft and the perfect shape. With my powder I like to push it onto my face, sweep it over my face and buff it in with circular motions. I have found brushes that are amazing at buffing, sweeping or pushing but never all three! This feels very light on the face as it's not too dense or compact. I have used powder brushes before which have been too dense and when I use them they disturb and move my concealer, whereas this one doesn't at all! It feels so light and soft.
I am very tempted to buy a second one of these brushes for bronzer as I think it is the perfect shape and size to just sweep bronzer over the face!


I bought the petit stippling brush for applying cream blush and highlighter. I have used it for powder blush a couple of times and it's nice, but it doesn't replace my current blush brush! I haven't yet used it for cream blush but it seems as if it would work well, I just don't wear cream blush that often. I have used it to apply cream highlighter and it's pretty good! 

I dab this in the product and stipple it onto my cheekbones and then blend it in. It stipples the product really well onto my cheekbones, however I don't find it amazing at blending the highlighter in. I do tend to use my finger at the end to just make sure the highlighter isn't just a line and make it more subtle. I am using this brush every time I wear highlighter so I do really like it! It is just not amazing at blending. 


Lastly is the crease brush and this is lovely! I use this to apply powder under my eyes, around my nose and anywhere I have popped concealer on. This brush is very soft and such a perfect shape. It's tapered and small. I used to use a different version of this type of brush which I have been using and loving for a while now, however it didn't keep it's shape very well. Obviously I haven't been using this for as long but it feels very structured (if that makes sense!) and the shape and size is just perfect. 

I am considering whether to get another one of these for eye shadow blending!

I hope you have enjoyed this review! Have you ever heard of Zoeva brushes? What are your favourite makeup brushes?

Zoeva are available here. These brushes took 6 days to arrive which I was very impressed with.

    3. They took 6 days to arrive and that was over a bank holiday weekend as well so they would probably have been quicker normally which is great! Nope, they don't shed one little bit! :D xx
