It's been such a long time since I treated myself to some brand new makeup brushes, and while I really love using all my MAC brushes and Real Techniques sets I decided I wanted to splurge on a different brand. Having seen beauty bloggers the world over raving about the brush sets by Zoeva Cosmetics, I just had to give them a look myself...

Oh my god... So. Much. Choice. This was a situation where choice was both great and awful. Which set did I really need? I finally decided on their newest limited edition set - the Rose Golden Vol. 3, complete with handy yet spacious faux leather clutch bag - and I'm so, so happy with my purchase.

The set contains eight luxurious face and eye brushes in a sleek metallic rose golden design. They are described as a "modern day fairy tale for flawless makeup application every time", and I have to agree that they are an absolute dream to use. They are lovely and soft, and really do blend makeup wonderfully. You'll also be pleased to know that all the brushes are cruelty-free so you can apply your makeup guilt-free.

The brushes in the set are:

103 Defined Buffer - Adds definition and structure to the complexion effortlessly.
109 Face Paint - Works tirelessly to provide flawless coverage to the complexion using powder, cream and light-based foundation.
114 Luxe Face Focus - A luxurious makeup tool for flawless highlighting techniques.
129 Luxe Fan - A high performance powder brush which helps to erase product fall out and apply a light coverage of powder.
142 Concealer Buffer - Expertly distributes the desired product onto the complexion to disguise and hide any imperfections and blemishes.
228 Luxe Crease - A multi-tasking eyeshadow brush which blends and shades makeup in the crease of the eye.
234 Luxe Smoky Shader - The ultimate eyeshadow brush for creating a professional smoky effects.
317 Wing Liner - A broad, angled eyeliner brush which is perfect for creating professional winged eyeliner looks.

This limited edition set retails at £75, which seems like a lot but you get eight high-quality brushes and a lovely clutch to carry them about in. I justify it by working out how much I've spent on MAC brushes over the years and it actually makes this set seem like peanuts, haha!

So naturally, still browsing their website, this other rose golden beauty caught my eye like a metallic-loving magpie. And, at £13, it sort of just fell into my virtual basket, oops!

If you know me, you know I just love contouring and anything to make my face appear skinnier (still got those dodgy chubby hamster cheeks). This beautiful rose golden blush palette was calling my name from the very start, and how could I possibly resist?

The Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette contains three indulgent shades that, when used in conjunction with each other, create a gorgeously bronzed complexion. Featuring an extremely lightweight texture enriched with vitamin E to nourish the skin whilst simultaneously injecting with complementary colours. 

The palette contains:

Heavy Crown - A muted chocolate with a matte finish that is perfect for creating a bronzed glow.
Glowing Still - A pure white iridescent hue that illuminates the complexion beautifully. This is honestly my favourite highlighter to use at the moment, so dreamy!
Palace Door - A regal peach-toned rose gold shimmer that adds a sumptuous flush of colour to the cheeks.

All the shades glide onto the skin so effortlessly and blend out pretty much flawlessly to give a buildable coverage. I don't normally use a blusher or a highlight in my every day look because my cheeks are quite flushed anyway, but I really love these two shades in the palette and think they all work really well together.

The Zoeva Rose Golden Vol. 3 Luxury Brush Set and Rose Golden Blush Palette are both available on Beauty Bay and the Zoeva website.
