zoeva makeup brushes

I've had my eye on the Zoeva makeup brushes for the better part of a year and recently decided to take the plunge and treat myself to a set of them. I went for the rose gold set because they look absolutely stunning but also this set contained most of the brushes that I was interested in buying if I was to buy them individually. All sets come in these lovely 'expensive looking' makeup bags which is a plus. 

So let's start with the brushes as a whole, they are super duper soft, which is brilliant if you have sensitive skin like me. Brushes I have used in the past can be quite scratchy on the skin causing redness but these just glide smoothly across the skin. They are also excellent quality, I haven't had any of the bristles fall out when I am applying product or when I wash them. There's nothing worse than when you're applying foundation and having to pick bristles off your face. 

SILK FINISH: Blends my liquid foundation very well giving a seamless look. I find that I don't have to spend as long blending in my foundation with this brush as I do with my other foundation brushes or beauty blender. 

SHEER CHEEK: I use this brush for applying and blending in my highlighter. It distributes the product evenly and lightly, which gives better control of applying it. I much prefer to use this for powder rather than a cream highlight.

POWDER: This brush picks up a good amount of product and blends it out seamlessly. This is definitely the softest brush of the bunch, which is excellent really because if you're applying setting powder, it doesn't disturb your base foundation. 

FACE SHAPE: An excellent brush for contouring because it is small and dense, which means it is very precise when applying your product.

CONCEALER BUFFER: If I'm honest, I hate using brushes to blend out my concealer, especially under my eyes. I find that they leave an odd texture no matter what technique I try so I always use my fingers to dab it out. I'm likely to use this brush for sweeping shadow over my eyes. 

LUXE SOFT DEFINER: Picks up a light amount of product, which means you can build up eyeshadow with more control and you won't waste product because there is no need to tap it off (unless of course you're using a loose powder). I use this one for applying a base shadow all over the eye. 

LUXE PETITE CREASE: This is without a doubt the best crease brush I have ever used because it is very precise due to its tapered end and size. It does a great job at getting right into the crease.

WING LINER: Applys liner easily and precisely. I haven't actually tried a winged eye with this yet but i have no doubt it will do a great job. 

Has anyone tried these brushes before? What are your thoughts?
