Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set

As a beauty blogger I'm set for makeup brushes. I have 4 full set's of brushes on rotation. I mainly use two Purple Power set's by *Furless (an Australian Vegan Friendly and Cruelty Free makeup and brush company). I like support Australian brand's. My Furless post is here (from my old blog) and also a synthetic 4 piece Face set by XO Beauty is mentioned here.
This Zoeva set caught my eye (I'm like a Magpie for anything Rose Gold) when EssieButton mentioned this set in one of her videos (a few month's ago) so I investigated Zoeva further to make sure this set fit in with my preference using synthetic and cruelty free brushes only.

Zoeva are a German company who also make cruelty free makeup. I like rose gold detail's, how many brushes you get in the set, as well as the brush holder clutch style bag. I decided to splurge on a set so I could retire older one-off brushes from ELF etc. and give my Furless PP set's a bit of a rest.

The Rose Golden Luxury Set consist's of 8 synthetic makeup brushes, they come in a cute clutch style bag detailed with Rose Gold zip as well as an outer draw string dust bag which is also nice.
The Rose Golden set cost's EUR65.00 + shipping (shipping Internationally) EUR65 is approximately NZ$102 so not too pricey. I think for the amount of brushes you get it's worth investing in quality brushes that will last - as long as you look after them. I took this set to Sydney with me and I used them everyday and it was my first time using them.

My favourite's are the two eyeshadow brushes (eyeshadow application and a blending brush) and I used for foundation and blush and liked the density and quality of the brushes I used. I haven't used all of them yet namely the angled eye brush and the tapered eyeshadow brush.

The Face brushes I used were the Foundation and Blush/Power Brushes. I thought more of the Blush/Powder brush than the Foundation brush (I was using Lioele BB cream) and it took a while to blend, but I think it was because of the product and not the brush so I'll next use the foundation brush with a liquid foundation next to see if I like the result's of the foundation brush next time. I don't contour often but now it's Spring I'll be using the angled brush with my NYC Sunny Bronzer and see how it goes and I also have a couple of other bronzer's I want to start using.

I definitely recommend this Zoeva set but if your looking for synthetic and cruelty free makeup brushes closer to home (Australia and New Zealand) that are great quality and affordable, then I recommend Furless and I've included a link above.

I'm not sure I'd splash my cash on Zoeva cruelty free makeup but if I do I'll let you know.

In the past I've tried animal (goat hair) and [for me] I thought they picked up too much product. I find synthetic brushes give me precision and pick up just the right amount of product without having to tap too much product away, which if you think about it is a waste of product.

Which brand of brushes do you use, do you have a full set of brushes by the same brand, or do you use single brushes from different brand's? Do you prefer synthetic or animal hair brushes?
