Zoeva Bamboo Vol 2 Brush Set Review


As I'm sure you all know by now as I've raved about them more than once, Zoeva are one of my favourite brands for makeup brushes. I've been lucky enough to try two of their sets in the past and have been totally impressed with both the design and quality of their products. I was recently sent their brand new Bamboo Vol 2 brush set* and I just can't wait to share them as they're so beautiful. If you love the Zoeva rose gold brushes, I think you're going to love these ones too!

Firstly I have to talk about the appearance of the brushes. As with all Zoeva products, the packaging and general look of the brushes are simply stunning. The Bamboo set come in a lovely eco luxe reusable tube with gold detailing as well as a gorgeous nude makeup clutch to ensure you can truly travel in style with these brushes. I'm always using the clutch bag when I'm travelling to keep my brushes separate from my makeup - I wouldn't be without it. The brushes themselves have been designed with genuine bamboo handles, beautiful gold ferrules and soft vegan friendly Taklon bristles. They're so pretty to look at and I love that they've been made with with natural and vegan friendly products.

The set includes eight brushes in total - five face brushes and a trio of eye brushes. Here's a brief description of each and what you can use them for:

103 Defined Buffer Brush - This small angled brush with a flat top is ideal for applying liquid foundation precisely. Its a bit smaller than your typical foundation brush but it does the job just as well and because of the small size you can really work the product into tricky areas like around the eyes, nose and mouth. 

105 Highlight Brush - This brush is unlike many others I own as it has tapered bristles to create a dome like shape. This is a great multi-purpose brush and can be used the set under eye concealers or be used with contour products or highlighters. A great multi-tasker and one of my favourites in this set!

109 Face Paint Brush - This brush is great for contouring the face due to its square, thin and flat shape. It can be worked under the cheekbones or down the sides of the face to add some definition. This is a great brush to own if you love to contour but find it quite difficult as it makes the task so much easier!

128 Cream Cheek Brush - This angled brush is one of my favourites as it can be used for contouring, blush or applying highlighter to the top of the cheekbones. It blends products beautifully and is just the right size!

L-R: Wing Liner, Classic Shader, Concealer and Buffer Brush, Soft Definer, Face Paint, Cream Cheek, Highlight and Defined Buffer

142 Concealer and Buffer Brush - I'm a huge fan of concealer brushes as I think they make all the difference when blending concealer seamlessly into the skin and covering dark circles or redness. This one has a round top with dense bristles to really help buff the product into the skin and hard to get to areas. I really love this brush and it might just be my favourite from the whole collection.

227 Soft Definer Brush - Everyone needs a fluffy eye shadow brush in their lives as blending is key when it comes to applying eye shadow. This brush does all the work for you - simply apply eye shadow to the crease and then use this brush in quick circular movements to buff and blend the eye shadow so it looks seamless. This one is a must have!

232 Classic Shader Brush - Much like the fluffy brush, its also so important to have a brush you can apply shadow to the lid with. This shader brush applies shadow effortlessly and makes the job super easy. Use it with the soft definer brush and they're all you need to define your eyes!

317 Wing Liner Brush - I don't really use gel liners so this brush probably won't be used all that much but if you're a gel liner kinda girl, this fine angled brush is perfect for applying it. You could also use it on eyebrows but I find it a bit too fine and flexible for that personally.

As you can see, you get such a great range of brushes in this set and you could easily apply a full face of makup with them so its a great set to get if you're a beginner and just getting into applying makeup. Or if you're makeup mad like me and can never have too many makeup brushes!

This set is available to buy here from Beauty Bay for £56.95 with free delivery and they're well worth that price as it works out at just over £7.00 per brush! Quite the bargain I'd say!

  11. These look amazing, I've been meaning to try out Zoeva brushes for ages! Great post x


  12. I really really like the look of these, I have a couple of Zoeva brushes and have been extremely impressed by the quality of the brushes. I have had my eye on the rose gold vol. 2 set of brushes for a while now, but these ones look pretty awesome too - I think it will be hard to decide between the two of them.

  16. Zoeva brushes are top of my ''to-try' list, I spent an extortionate amount on the Real Techniques collection, and although they're absolutely stunning, I still find myself reaching for my cheaper brushes! I haven't seen a bad review of Zoeva brushes, so they must be doing something right, right!?
    As always, a great post!
