325 Luxe Brow Light: “Made of finest natural-synthetic hair, the ZOEVA Luxe Brow Light is the perfect tool to apply powder highlighter or powder eyeshadow evenly and layerable underneath the entire brow area.”
127 Luxe Sheer Cheek: I am obsessed with this brush. I love a good angled brush for setting my face, blush, and bronzer. It has a good angle and if thinner than some other angled brushes. It says sheer but it doesn’t apply products sheerly, just evenly! I can get great color pay off with minimal blending.
101 Luxe Face Definer: The brush has an egg shape. I had never tried a brush like this so I was happy to see it tappers to a nice rounded point vs a V point. So far I’ve used this brush for all over powdering. With all Zoeva brushes I get an amazingly even application. Usually I go over my face 2-3 times to get an even “coating” of powder. With this brush I go over my face once and it’s powdered. Zoeva brushes don’t hold product, so what’s on your brush will go onto your skin. I love that they don’t soak up product.
105 Luxe Highlight: The 105 is even more egg shaped than the 101, as you can see from the photos above. The brush is perfect for setting under your eyes. I’ve also loved this for contouring, bronzing (you know I love controlled bronzer), and blush. If you apply more pressure you can get a more rounded brush rather than just using the tip.
114 Luxe Face Focus: I have really enjoyed this brush for it not being what I thought. I’ve been eyeing the Tom Ford blush brush. I know I will get it eventually so I didn’t want to get the Zoeva version (which I totally regret btw). When I saw this brush I thought it would be a great introduction to that style of brush. I had a hard time finding photos of this so I thought it was smaller than the 127 but bigger than the 105. It’s basically the flat ferrule version of the 105 (the 105 has a round ferrule). I was so mad at myself when I saw how small it was but I love it. As they describe it I use it for controlled powdering: it’s perfect for baking under your eyes/contour. What I’ve found I use it for the most is touching up powder... I’ll explain. I have oily skin so sometimes when I powder I can have areas that still seem to not be completely matte. I will take this and use it’s flat side to powder where I look shiny still. It’s a must for oily skin, it’s great for getting the chin/forehead shine free without getting powder everywhere leading to cake-y face.
129 Luxe Fan: For a long time I had never seen the point of a fan brush. I would just a fluffy brush for highlight. Now that I have this I’m converted! It applied product perfectly to cheek bones. I’ve also used this to top off a blush/bronzer with a different color (or shimmer).
110 Face Shape: Out of all the face brushes I have this is my least favorite. It’s quite dense so I use it for applying foundation. It’s a small brush but I don’t mind. I think this would be better for blending out a cream contour. I’m not loving it with powder. It’s also the only brush that has stained a bit.
325 Luxe Brow Light: (Again another last minute buy) I have a version of this brush that’s the “bigger” version that many brands sell. I really like this brush more. It fits under the brow bone perfectly and gives more control. The bigger version I have I sometimes hate because my highlight shade mixes too much with my crease. Since this brush is so soft I use it for setting my eye primer as well.

Last Comments? I love these brushes. I can feel the quality in these brushes. I haven’t used any other brushes since I’ve got these. I wanted the big brush set (came with traveling case) and I totally regret not buying it. I’m sure at some point I’m going to buy it because I need doubles. Zoeva brushes are hand cut, hand made, and perfection. Honestly once you use these brushes you will be so disappointed with your other brushes. The brushes are so soft (and stay soft).
