I cannot believe it’s already mid September! While I’m in definite shock and disbelief at how quickly time is passing, a new month always excites me as it means new Morphe Me brushes!
This month’s package is inspired by ending Summer with a “splash” – with allusions to the ocean and The Little Mermaid.
It comes with 4 brushes – 1 face and 3 eye brushes.
- E6 Flat Buffer
- M576 Pointed Blender
- M577 Jumbo Crease
- M578 Pencil Crease
E6 Flat Buffer: This mid-sized, flat topped foundation brush has synthetic bristles, making it great for liquid or powder. It’s somewhat dense, so you could easily build light to medium coverage with this. A brush like this is great for buffing product into the skin with circular motions. I love using a brush with this type of a shape to buff mineral or loose powder-foundations into the skin. The bristles are super soft and don’t feel scratchy on the skin. You could also use this to blend/soften your contour! I also love using a brush like this to press powder onto the skin (pushing rather than buffing) to add extra coverage to problem areas during a breakout. It helps set your concealer and amp up your coverage!
M576 Pointed Blender: This fluffy crease blending brush is made with Sable bristles and has an elongated teardrop shape. The fluffiness paired with the tapered, pointed tip makes it great for blending shadows into your crease or softening colours. It’s not dense, so it really will work better to blend colour than to deposit colour. I use a brush with a shape like this every single day – usually taking a neutral brown (or any neutral colour thats a couple shades darker than your skin tone) and gently buff this along my crease. This adds definition and allows you to enhance or alter your eye shape!
M577 Jumbo Crease: this big, dense brush has Sable bristles and a pointed tip. This is a great brush to have if you like doing cut creases, smokey eyes, or just want something precise yet larger to blend and build up shading in your outer corner/crease area. If your eyes are smaller or more deep set you may prefer a brush on the smaller size. The density of this brush makes it better for depositing and lightly blending colour, rather than diffusing and softening colour.
M578 Pencil Crease: I consider this the little sister to the M577. It also has Sable bristles and is similar in shape, but much smaller. It’s great for a precise cut crease, or is a fantastic option if you have smaller or deep set eyes. It’s very soft, so also works well to shade around the lower lash line, apply a highlight to the inner corner, or any other precision work you may desire!
Overall, I think this is a great set for those needing some basic eye brushes. I do love all of them, and needed another face buffing brush, however my collection has now grown so large that I don’t really need more crease blending brushes.
