October is in full swing, and my brushes from the Morphe Me monthly brush subscription have arrived! This month’s package is appropriately Pumpkin Spice themed, and features 4 brushes: 3 eye brushes, and 1 double-ended face brush.
- E25 – Pointed Foundation/Concealer Blender
- E30 – Blending Fluff
- E37 – Small Detail
- E35 – Detail Smudger
E25 Pointed Foundation/Concealer Blender: (synthetic bristles)
I was so excited to see this brush, as it’s double ended and has tapered tips on both sides. It reminds me of the Stila #33 One Step Complexion brush – but is, of course, a fraction of the price. One side has a larger end with a pointed tip that is ideal for liquid products, such as foundation, concealer, and contour.
Personally, I find it a bit too small and tapered for applying foundation. However, I love using a brush like this to apply and blend concealer under the eyes. It’s also great to use with cream contour products to sculpt your cheekbones, as you can apply it very precisely.
The smaller end is ideal for concealing those hard to reach places. It’s great for applying concealer around the nose, on any blemishes, or under the eyes. Especially towards the inner corner of the eye, as we often neglect that area due to it being hard to reach!)
I accidentally left my brush in my bag, and it got a little temporarily bent! Oops!

E30 Blending Buff: (synthetic bristles)
This is a fluffy blending brush with a flatter, wide shape. Think of the Mac 217 or Morphe M433’s bigger, fluffier, huskier cousin. The bristles are super soft, yet it’s firm and slightly domed allowing you to easily diffuse and blend colour. This is a fantastic brush for softening or blending colours in the crease of the eye.
The shape might initially seem similar to many other eye blending brushes – but upon further investigation, it’s definitely the only one of its kind in my collection!
Here’s a comparison of the E30 and M433:

E37 Small Detail: (Synthetic Bristles)
This teeny tiny brush is similar in shape to a lip brush. Small, precise brushes like this are great tools for any makeup artist or enthusiast, as they give you so much more control when applying eyeshadow to certain parts of the eye. I love using this brush to apply a light, highlight shade to the inner corner of my eye. It’s also great for applying colour to the lower lash line. Morphe suggests also using this brush as a lip brush!
I have quite a few brushes now that can be used for this purpose, so I didn’t really need another. However, if you don’t have any small precision brushes, this could be a great one for your collection.
E35 Detail Smudger: (synthetic bristles)
This is definitely one of my favourite brushes from this month’s package. It’s a tiny brush with a pointed, slightly tapered tip. This is a fantastic brush for smudging or applying colour (whether it’s powder shadow, creme, gel, etc.) along the lash line, in the crease, and more. It’s been my go-to brush for smudging a dark brown shadow along my lash line, for a soft diffused “faux eyeliner” look. It’s also great for smudging colour along the lower lash line.
Do I recommend this month’s package?
Morphe now has the option to swap out certain brushes if there are some you aren’t interested in! You do this before your package ships – I might have swapped out the E37 brush for something else as I have a couple similar brushes, September passed by so quickly I completely forgot to check what brushes were launching for October.
Overall, I’m really happy with this month’s Morphe Me Brush subscription, even though I definitely don’t need any more makeup brushes. If you’re looking to grow your brush collection, I truly do love the Morphe Me subscription and think it’s a great value.
