While I was writing this post, I listened to New Rules by Dua Lipa. Try it !

I can't believe I've been using these for more than a year. Indeed, this brush set was released for Christmas 2017. At first when the whole collection was released, including this brush set, a face palette and an Opulence eyeshadow palette, I was all "Nah, I don't need anymore brushes". But then, as they usually do, Zoeva released a bundle and the bundle was really, really affordable. Something like €100 for all three products and I couldn't resist. Now, I took the pictures of these brushes more than a year ago but they still look exactly the same. 

The quality of the duo fiber Zoeva brushes is outstanding which is why I try to buy only those because I hate brushes with only white hairs. Not just for Zoeva, for any brushes I use. It's just that they're more fragile and at some point, the bristles are going to be stained by some product I use and are never going to go back to their usual clean state. And that, my dear, looks really nasty when I spread my brushes on a towel before I use them on a model which is why I like pure synthetic bristles better - like these ones. 
This brush set is called Opulence and every part of every brush feels sturdy and high quality. It's vegan and it holds some of my very favorite Zoeva brushes so that was a very useful buy since I use them very often. In this set, we've got 10 brushes and a clutch, all burgundy and expensive-looking.

ZOEVA COSMETICS | OPULENCE BRUSH SET

Five brushes are for the face :
- 104 Buffer (this one is awesome for high-coverage foundations and really compact cream products)
- 110 Face Shape (I like to use this for cream blushes or cream contour products)
- 134 Petit Face Definer (I use this with either cream or powder blushes but mostly I use it with contour colors because the shape is just perfect for that job !)
- 137 Petit Fan (this one is cool for powder or cream highlighters, it's one of the most resistant and stiff fan brushes I've ever seen and I love knowing that it's not going to be out after one or two washes)
- 142 Concealer Buffer (one of my favorite Zoeva brushes, I used to use a Beauty Blender to buff the concealer on the undereye and this does the job so much more efficiently, you wouldn't believe it ! Super easy to wash too !)

Then you've got five brushes for the eyes and lips :
- 223 Petit Eye Blender (it's one amazing tiny blending brush that you can use for dark colors in the crease or the lower lashline, such a cool tool to have !)
- 227 Soft Definer (it's a medium-stiffed blender and its size makes it perfect to blend light to medium shades in the crease)
- 233 Cream Shader (I've never used the Cream Shader for cream eyeshadows, it's actually my perfect brush to apply concealer because it's so precise and easy to use with cream products !)
- 317 Wing Liner (the Wing Liner is my perfect eyeliner brush and my favorite Zoeva brush. I must have 4 or 5 because it's so, so precise and amazing for those graphic looks I'm fond of !)
- 331 Precision Lip (it's actually the brush I use the least because I'm not a big fan of square-shaped lip brushes - I prefer the Make Up For Ever 220 brush for the lip area but I guess I could use it more to clean the outlines of the lips !).


You couldn't dream of a more efficient brush set. All in all I've bought three Zoeva brush kits : this one, the large Makeup Artist one and another one mixing face and eye brushes and this one is by far my favorite. The fact that it's so beautiful helps indeed, I'm not going to lie about that ! I know it might seem a bit expensive at first but it's an investment that's going to last you for years ! I hope Zoeva releases another Brush Set that captivates my heart just as much one day !

Have you ever used Zoeva brushes ? What are your favorite makeup brushes ?
