Initially I had this habit of applying blush with my fingers. Never realised what a blunder I was making until I actually used a blush brush. Application with hand is not at all even and also very patchy. Using a brush gives an equal flawless finish. This review will be on the second brush from my recently hauled Zoeva Makeup Brushes, Zoeva 128 Cream Cheek Brush.
With this handcrafted ZOEVA blush brush you will apply and blend powder and cream blush products professionally and with a flawless finish. The angled shape fits the contours of the cheeks perfectly.
The soft vegan taklon bristles shape and contour without creating hard lines and provide your makeup with a fresh glow – so fine, so tender.
My Experience with Zoeva 128 Cream Cheek Brush:
The brush comes in a really soft plastic zipper bag. Also the brush is packed in a plastic cover wherein the bristles are carefully covered with a thick plastic casing. The number and name of the brush is written at the back of the zipper as well as on the brush.
128 Cream Cheek is basically an angled blush brush. The length of the brush is 15.8cm and the bristles are made of soft vegan taklon hair. Any accessory you use on your face in regards to applicators and brushes needs to be extremely soft as otherwise it may damage your skin. 128 Cream Cheek is super soft, just like wool. The brush is curved and hence fits the contours of the face perfectly. I basically do not have a very small or big face, somewhere in between and this brush perfectly fits my cheek bones. The bristles are black colour with the ends in white. The bristles are very closely held.
The brush handle is in black colour and has a nice smooth, glossy, shiny finish. The handle is quite long but not heavy and fits in your hand perfectly. Although it is smooth in finishing the grip is very good and it does not slip from the hands. This brush is very useful for powder and cream blushes. 128 Cream Cheek gives seamless smooth finishing when used for cream blushes and absolutely no streaking or patches can be seen.
Close your lips and smile and use the brush to tap on the blush on your cheek bones and bend blend blend. Also this brush can be used for shaping the face. Using your contouring powder or cream just drag the brush from the ear towards the nose just up to the corner of your eyes and blend away the harsh lines.
I cleaned it once and have not noticed any bristle damage or fall. It remains soft as ever. While using any cream products just be careful to wash it away neatly as they tend to stick to the brush bristles more as compared to powder products.
