Review | Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease & 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brushes

Whilst I love buying makeup, there is nothing I love more than buying fresh makeup brushes. I have always said that I would rather buy a new brush than wash an old one but unfortunately I'm not made of money so I don't buy them regularly but when I do, there is nothing I like more than seeing a fresh makeup brush all clean and sparkling new in its packaging.

I feel like whenever I buy new eyeshadow brushes, my eyeshadow application dramatically improves. A couple of years ago I applied my eyeshadow with ELF brushes and they were fine. Then I moved onto Morphe and Spectrum brushes and suddenly my makeup skillzz dramatically improved, even though I was using exactly the same products. I used to buy really cheap brushes and whilst they can be okay, I have learnt to pay a little bit more to get a more quality application and product.

I was recently in Selfridges in London and came across a whole section of Zoeva makeup products. I had no idea Selfrisges was a stockist for Zoeva so of course I couldn't resist a makeup brush purchase or two! I really wanted to buy a couple of the palettes as well as I know they are so highly spoken about but do I really need another soft neutral palette? Not right now so I decided to buy two pretty much identical eyeshadow brushes instead! They didn't have the rose gold versions just the standard original black handles but a brush is a brush so I went for the Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease Brush & the Zoeva 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush.

About the Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease Brush:
"The ideal beauty tool for creating perfectly defined, radiant eyes, 228 Luxe Crease Brush is an essential makeup brush for professional crease definition and a perfect eye contour. Designed to effortlessly blend eye shadow and shade colour transitions, 228 Luxe Crease Brush has a unique fluffy design which fits into the contours of the eyelid crease and takes the edge off colour."

About the Zoeva 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush:
"It's all in the details when it comes to professional looking eye makeup; 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush allows you to create stunning ombre effects and create the smoothest transitions from light to dark with your favourite eye shadow."

The Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease Brush and the 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush both look pretty damn similar. Both are designed to fit into the crease of the eye and to blend eyeshadow out effortlessly. The only difference between them is that the 221 brush is more rounded whereas the 228 is pointed. Both blend out eyeshadow perfectly in the crease of the eye so there is no such thing as a bad makeup day when you use either of these two - or no unblended out eyeshadow, anyway! My eye makeup is my favourite part of doing my makeup and I have definitely improved when it comes to blending and applying liquid eyeliner. Whilst I am no Instagram guru and won't be filming any makeup tutorials any time soon, I do get asked about my eyeshadow and how I apply it and all I can say is blend blend blend!

I really love both of these brushes as they both make the application of eyeshadow ever so easy. They are both really soft to the touch and on the eyes without being scratchy or irritable and they are great quality. They are perfect at defining and contouring the eyes and blend all eyeshadows out effortlessly. If you have been after a really fluffy crease brush then I definitely recommend either of these two as they will work wonders for your makeup!
