The two most essential eye brushes for me are, the soft crease blending brush and the smoky shader brush. Armed with these 2 brushes you can get any eye makeup look that you want. The blending brush sheers out and creates a flawless finish and the smoky shader brush with its packed bristles lets you place pigment on the eyelids and also turns even the most vanilla look into a drama that captures attention.
Today, I have come with the review of another top notch product by Zoeva.It is their 234, Luxe smoky shader brush.Read on to know its qualities.
This 234 Smoky Shader is the perfect tool for an instant Smokey eye makeup. Its soft bristles help apply the right amount of eye shadow on the upper lid and along the lash line. It’s also easy to use for blending color with a professional finish. Pat brush on eye shadow.Apply product on the entire eyelid or on the crease. Blend out the edges. The perfect brush for a mystic, smoky eye look, 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Brush is a soft and gentle eye brush for effortless application of eye shadow on the upper and lower lid. Beautifully dense but supremely soft, 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Brush has been exclusively handcrafted with Natural Goat Hair bristles with soft, round edges for classic seamless shading. 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Brush promotes smooth color transition and blends color easily for a professional finish. Packaged in ZOEVA’s signature protective pouch, 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Brush will deliver exceptional shading results for years to come and is a much loved beauty tool amongst professional makeup artists. Did you know? ZOEVA was founded in 2008 by the owner Zoe Boikou in Germany; the brand name ZOEVA is a composition of ZOE, the Greek word for “life” and EVA, the very first woman. Use this brush for the soft blending and shading of pressed powder and loose pigment eye shadow. We recommend to use a brush for each color or to clean the brush with a brush cleanser before using a different shade of color.
My Experience with the Zoeva 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Eye Brush
This is another luxuriant brush by Zoeva. The brush has a glossy black handle and the natural goat hair bristles are fitted nicely into the holder. The shape is square with tapered ending on the top.
The bristles are quite densely packed and this allows the brush to pick up just the exact right amount of color. It is excellent to pack color on the lids. I feel it is the dupe, and in fact a better version of the MAC 239 BRUSH. It is stiff but inordinately softer than the MAC brush. I actually love the fact that it adds a great dimension to the eye makeup look when the brush is used to smoke out the under eye area. Just finish off with kohl and take the desired color to smoke out the under eye area. It not only adds a pop of color but also prevents the kajal from bleeding or feathering!
Again, it is a white brush. So it needs to be washed after every application. This and the crease brush are my most reached for eye brushes. I have washed them like a zillion times, but neither does the brush lose its shade, not does it lose its fluffiness. There is no bristle fallout and the quality of this product is commendable.
Pros of Zoeva 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Eye Brush:
• 100% Natural bristles
• Very soft
• Dense enough to pack the desired amount of color
• Does not lose shape or bristles on washing
Cons of Zoeva 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Eye Brush:
• No Cons
Final Verdict:This is an excellent brush. If you are new to eye makeup, I suggest you start with this brush and the Luxe soft definer (reviewed here). You will surely not be disappointed.
