A while ago I struck a deal with myself. It was an intense negotiation session, but myself and I came to an agreement: once I got my first Youtube video up I was allowed to buy the Zoeva Rose Gold Luxury Set. Getting a video up was (and still is) something that scares the poop out of me, so a motivator couldn’t hurt. About a month ago I finally posted a video and (after no spend October was over) I went ahead and ordered a set of zee German treasure. And hooo Nelly, they arrived yesterday.

I have a plan to do a full, thorough video review on these, so I ‘ent going to say much. But what I’ll say for now is they are perfection. They’re soft as a baby’s bottom, densely packed when called for or light and feathery when needed, and there isn’t a dud in the whole bunch. Most brush sets you look at and there are at least a few brushes that you think “throwaway,” but not with Zoeva. In the words of the great Barney Stinson, NAILED IT.


  • I have been lusting after these brushes for the longest time! They're so gorgeous, good on you for buying them!

  • This set is on my Christmas wishlist – they are so beautiful!

  • Ohh these brushes have such smooth and soft bristles! ^ ___ ^


  • These brushes are too beautiful!


  • Dayum these are too gorgeous. I really want to get my hands on them – the quality sounds phenomenal! I actually love the look of the little bag that comes with too haha!

  • They're so lovely x


  • Aaah lucky you!!! This set is on my wishlist for so long, but one day I'll have it in my hands!!! If only Santa existed… 🙂

  • They look amazing and I have only read positive reviews about them. As I have more brushes than space to store them, I am on a brush-set-buy-ban (it's hard, always in negotiation with my inner-me too). Congrats on your first video on YT!

  • Ahhh, I have almost purchased these a few times already but have decided to ask for them for Christmas instead…regardless, I WILL be getting this set! I don't have a lot of brushes either so I think it's safe to say I do need a good albeit affordable set. Can't wait to hear your thoughts 🙂 xx

  • These have been on my wish list for such a long time but I can't bring myself to spend the money! They definitely seem worth the investment though – looking forward to your full review! – Hollie

  • Ohh yes they do. Mmmmm.

  • They would have been on my Christmas list too had I not caved earlier.

  • Yeah it is sturdy! It even has a sub-pocket.

  • They would look amazing in your gorgeous photography.

  • Thank you and I'm glad I'm not the only one negotiating with myself haha.

  • I like the vigor behind your "will." I'm excited for you to have them. You won't be able to stop stroking your face with them.

  • I know. It's a battle because they're not that expensive per brush, especially for such good quality, but when you buy a set it's a big lump sum of money.

  • These are lovely! I've seen them around but I wasn't sure how Zoeva brushes measured against Sigma. Looking forward to your review!

  • I've been wanting to buy this set for so long, but I haven't been able to talk myself into it because I already have so many brushes! Maybe I'll try some individually.

  • Oh they WILL be mine! Can't wait to do all the stroking….

  • They look so lovely! I wish I felt okay with spending that much money on a brush set.

  • They look gorgeous!

  • Haha delightfully creepy sounding. Just the way I like it.

  • Yeah I've seen them on beautybay.com with free shipping, but I think they only ship Zoeva to Europe.

  • We have a family motto, it's "too far is never far enough" 😉

  • I'm in love.

  • It excites me every time I look at them.

  • That's it exactly! I'm English so it works out about £6.50 a brush which is incredible – but I just can't bring myself to spend £50! Think it's going to be added to my Christmas list…

  • Ohh, Barney Stinson :'D (cries at the loss of HIMYM)

    Nostalgia aside, I can't believe I still haven't bought these yet. THEY ARE BOOTIFUL.

  • It's a delight just to look at them haha, I'm sooo tempted to buy them! Great great post as always! xx

  • Ha, I love that deal. Congratulations on conquering your fear. 🙂

  • That they are my friend. One might even say they are LEGEN, wait for it…

  • …DARY

    I am literally working on a 'Which Ted's girlfriend are you' quiz for Buzzfeed. #dontjudgemeh

  • Well, we are Savage's (maiden name).

  • I know. Beautiful! Honestly I like owning them just for the fact that they spruce up a photograph quite nicely.

  • Thank you! Bit of cheeky deal, but ah well.

  • I saw Sharon Farrell's review on youtube (love her) and she said that she preferred them and that they were softer.

  • Loved this post, so happy that you're on youtube and you go girl! 🙂 Your blog is one of the few ones I now properly follow ! Have a lovely day ! xx Gabriella from http://www.willowjolie.com
