[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’m so impressed with my newly arrived Zoeva Foundation brushes – especially for applying my tinted moisturiser, bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, which I’ve fallen back in love with. I’ve tried so many tints over this year and yet, Complexion Rescue is still my comfort zone product that I’ll pick up when I don’t even want to think about what else to use. However, I’m not here to eulogise about CR yet again but to tell you about the Zoeva Foundation Brushes that I’m very pleased with.
There are two to speak about – the 103 Detail Foundation and 104 Foundation Buffer Brush. They’re both a dream to use giving even and thorough coverage – in this case, the synthetic fibres are so densely packed and soft that they pick up and distribute liquid or cream make up perfectly.
I was too hasty to use the Buffer before I’d photographed them but I started using it as soon as I got it and haven’t used anything else since. I don’t use an array of different brushes for different tasks so I tend to use the same brush for foundation/tint/blush/highlight and resign myself to the fact they’ll need cleaning more often but I like a multi-tasker and both these foundation brushes fit the bill. They sweep so gently over the skin – looking at some of my Instagram films I see that I am quite hard on my skin when applying product with more of a bish-bash-bosh approach to getting the product on and I don’t think I’d have thought twice about it unless I watched myself back. As a little exercise, really focus on watching how much force you put into applying face product with a brush! It was a surprise. So, both these Zoeva Foundation Brushes prevent the slap-it-on technique – the give of the bristles is so cushiony that you’re automatically gentle. I’m sure no harm comes from being a bit heavy handed but if you are a bosher, be prepared for the pleasantly gentle glide that come from these. The Buffer is £21.50 HERE, and I don’t think you need both when this does the job perfectly. Just as well because it’s listing out of stock in most places.
By way of contrast, I’ve also tried the Zoeva eyeshadow brushes and while they were okayyyy, I didn’t love them because I didn’t think the pick up was great.
