If I was starting a make up brush collection from scratch (let’s pretend I haven’t already spent a small fortune on MAC ones) I would fill my collection with Zoeva. The quality and styling of their brushes blow the expensive ones out-the-water and for a fraction of the price! My newest addition is the ZOEVA 226 Smudger Brush – here’s the low down.
I’ll cut to the chase, if you like a smokey eye, you need this in your life. I’ve been searching for the perfect brush to apply and smudge product along the lash line for soooo long. MAC 219 pencil brush is fine for smudging pencil but a bit too fat for applying powder, Real Techniques Smudge brush from the collectors edition is a bit of a chunky monkey and too curved to exaggerate the lash line without looking heavy handed. Zoeva’s 226 is perfection! It’s slim but super sturdy. The Vegan Synthetic bristles are short and firm and provide maximum control. It hugs the lash line perfectly for close application. It applies and smudges pencil and powder for that perfect smoked out look and since it’s super slim it’s ideal for exaggerating the lash line – hello cat eyes. It looks, feels and performs like an expensive brush, it even comes presented in an individual zip-lock pouch (unlike MAC who stick a bit of plastic wrap over theirs, sorry MAC) and all for just £6.95. The 226 is also available as part of the Zoeva Rose Golden Complete Eye Set, which I was so tempted to buy to match my other Rose Gold brushes, but I stayed strong and bought the non-rose gold single. The 226 is definitely a staple in my collection now!
