My Experience With Zoeva 223 Petit Eye Blender, 225 Eye Blender & 231 Petit Crease Brushes:
Packaging: All the brushes came in a sleek semi-translucent zip-lock pouches with the brush name written on the respective pouches. All the three brushes have sleek black and silver handles with the number and brand engraved upon them. I love their packaging and the zip-lock pouches as well.
223 Petit Eye Blender: A small dense round tipped blending brush made of Taklon bristles. The brush is extremely suitable for small eyes where blending the crease and lid becomes slightly tough. The hairs are soft yet dense and do a good job for merging outer V colors as well. The brush works well for cream eyeshadows on the eyelid as well. Due to its petite size, it's easy to control the softening near the edges. It is one of the rare blending brushes for small eyes which is quite good with its performance.
225 Eye Blender: This is my Holy Grail blending brush! It is a dense tapered tip blending brush, a slighter larger version of 223. The bristles are soft, velvety and extremely smooth on the eye skin. It is made of squirrel hair. I use the brush for various purposes – for blending cream eye shadows, working on the crease with hard lines and also on the brow bone. It works excellent as a highlighter too. The small eyes won't like the brush as it's too heavy. Overall, a must-have brush in my opinion.
231 Petit Crease: It is a fluffy dense pencil brush with slight tapered end. The bristles are the mix of natural and synthetic hair. It is quite a soft brush and doesn't poke eyes even though it is in the shape of a pencil. It is a great brush for transitions and blending hard lines on the crease. I tried to create some dark outer V with this brush and it did a pretty good job blending. It suits both small eyes as well as big eyes. When I am in a hurry, I simply use the brush to soften the line of the kajal on my upper lid for a light smokey eye look. I was looking for an alternative to MAC 217 which is the raved pencil brush and a favourite of Mickey Contractor. Though I wouldn't this brush a dupe of MAC 217 but it works in a similar way. Overall, this is a good blending brush for the crease.
The brushes don't shed or change color upon washing. However, proper care should be taken for long lasting results.

I was surprised to find these brushes with such amazing quality! It is totally worth the price you are paying for. I am planning to buy few more brushes from their range, may be some face brushes as well. I strongly recommend these brushes to all the ladies out there who are looking for some quality brushes! It is definitely a tough competitor to Sigma and MAC.
