Bloggers Made Me Buy It: Zoeva Rose Gold Vol 2 Brushes

I’m sure, like myself, you have seen countless upon countless reviews of Zoeva brushes. First it started out with the original sets that came in the black case with the rose gold hardware. I was tempted but I wasn’t swooning quite yet. Then the Rose Golden Vol. 2 sets were released. My eyes set upon them and I had a “they will be mine, oh yes. They will be mine…” moment a la Wayne Campbell. Unfortunately for me, they were sold out and I had to (not so) patiently wait for them to be restocked. I internally blamed Benjamin. Le sigh.

When I finally got that email notification that they were back in stock I got a major case of “shut up and take my money.” Then I impatiently waited again. Within an hour or so I got an email saying that my order had shipped out. Then more waiting. Then after not receiving them after a month (attributing the long wait for it maybe having to clear customs?), I inspected the tracking number on the order more closely. The shipping company they used in Germany said it had been handed over to the US mail, US mail said they hadn’t received it. To give credit to Zoeva’s customer service, they responded pretty promptly to the email I sent them asking what was up. A day and a half later, the tracking number was updated. By three days the box was finally on my porch when I came home from work.

Zoeva Rose Golden Vol 2 Luxury Brush Set

In the Luxury set you get 8 brushes: 104 Buffer, 109 Luxe Face Paint, 126 Luxe Cheek Finish, 234 Luxe Smoky Shader, 322 Brow Line, 226 Shader, 228 Luxe Crease, and 317 Wing Liner.

Pretty sure I’m going to be using this case as a small clutch. The bags feel super sturdy, and the leather is so soft to the touch. It’s the little things that make you happy you ended up biting the bullet and hitting the submit order button.

Seriously, they were so pretty I had a difficult time actually using them at first. Which was then followed by me watching more smokey eye tutorials on youtube than I’d like to admit.

Zoeva Rose Golden Vol 2 Complete Eye Brush Set

The Complete Eye Set comes with these 12 brushes: 228 Luxe Crease, 227 Luxe Soft Definer, 221 Luxe Soft Crease, 142 Concealer Buffer, 231 Luxe Petit Crease, 322 Brow Line, 232 Luxe Classic Shader, 325 Luxe Brow Light, 230 Luxe Pencil, 310 Spot Liner, 235 Contour Shader, and 238 Luxe Precise Shader.

There are a few brushes that overlap between the two sets, but honestly, I can never have enough clean blending brushes. Especially since I’m lazy and don’t wash them nearly as much as I should.

Zoeva Rose Gold Brush Beauty Blog Review

I know how easy it is to get caught up in the relative blogger hysteria over a new product launch or a favorite cult product (Hourglass Ambient Bronzer, or the They’re Real mascara, to name a few). There have been so many products that I’ve lusted and pined over after reading blogger after blogger rave about it, only to get it and experience intense buyers remorse because it just doesn’t work for me. So definitely keep in mind, that my feelings towards these brushes are just my opinion, and you may like them more or less than I do. However, I also feel that makeup brushes are a little less subjective than a specific lipstick or mascara.

So are they worth the hype?

Yes! The quality of the brushes are amazing, the bristles are so soft and pick up/deposit just the right amount of product. Not to mention the bristles are super dense. If you’re looking at picking up a whole set of brushes (opposed to just a crease brush or buffing brush), this is where they become super economical too. The two sets ended up costing me €122.98, including shipping to the United States, after converting it to USD this works out to be about just under $7 a brush. Score! Plus you get the two really pretty makeup bags, of which the larger one you can probably use as a clutch.

The zipper case they come in is soo cute too!! Take care of these, girl!! To be honest I always take my not-so-great makeup brushes to acrylic paints and a canvas hahaha >:)

    • Haha! I do the almost the exact opposite and use my old acrylic brushes for nail stuff. But yes, I’m going to baby these like crazy! =D

  • These are so pretty, I bought the zoeva eye brush set but in black because it reminds me of the mac brushes, but I really want them in rose gold now! xx

  • I love the amazing range of brushes Zoeva has! They are so purse friendly, professional and pretty, great for anyone who doesn’t have the money to invest in in the likes of MAC and Bobbi Brown!

  • I really love Zoeva in general, I can’t wait to try these brushes! Lovely post and photographs. K x

    • This is my first experience with anything from Zoeva, but oh my goodness have they won me over in the 1-2 weeks I’ve been using them. & Thank you! I was a little nervous about how the photos would turn out since my camera was out of commission and I had to use my phone. Haha. x

      • Wow, I would never have guessed, yes I really love Zoeva and the makeup is quite reasonably priced. All the makeup I’ve tried is lovely I just need some of those gorgeous brushes next K x

  • Ive always loved the look of their brushes (I mean… they’re rose gold!) though I’ve read somewhere that the rose gold rubs off? Was wondering whether you noticed that on yours as well?

    find me on

    • I haven’t noticed any wear off in the couple weeks I’ve been using them, at all. Can’t say for sure that it won’t happen after a longer period of time though. Like anything though I’m guessing storing them correctly will help a bunch.

  • I’m glad you loved these! I have the mixed eye and face sets in the original and v2 and use them every day 🙂 the eye brushes in particular are something special xx
