Another month, another Morphe Me brush set! July’s Morphe Me Brush Set is nautical themed and features 4 brushes.

I actually opted out of this month’s Morphe package, as it contains brushes with real animal hair. I am now trying to avoid animal hair and stick to synthetic for ethical, cruelty-free reasons. I don’t know if Morphe didn’t get the memo, as they sent this package to me anyway – despite me opting out and not being charged for it. Oh well! Guess that means another review for you guys! I will be giving away the brushes with animal hair to friends or family who need them.

Brush Breakdown:

  • M492 – Duo Foundation (synthetic and sable bristles) – this flat brush has duo fibre bristles and a rounded edge. It’s fluffy enough that it works great for blending liquid products while still allowing you to be precise. A brush like this works great with foundation if you’re wanting to apply a thin or light layer. I love using a brush like this for foundation because it allows you to apply a small amount in a light layer without looking heavy or cakey. This is similar in shape to the G19 that came in January’s brush package. 

 

  • M166 ‑ Oval Shadow (sable bristles)–  this brush is similar in shape to the Mac 217, or other very popular eyeshadow brushes. The M166 however, is flat rather than fluffy. A brush like this is ideal for packing colour onto the lids, as its flat surface picks up eyeshadow and deposits it onto the skin. The Mac 217 in comparison, is fluffier and designed for blending product rather than depositing it. I wouldn’t recommend trying to blend eyeshadow with the M166 – it’s simply too flat to be effective for blending! 

  • M579 ‑ Pro Flat Contour (goat bristles) – this brush has a wide, straight-edge tip and is ideal for using with powder products. Natural hair bristles absorb liquid and cream products, which is why it’s much better to use with powder. A shape like this is a must-have for any contour lovers, as it allows you to easily sculpt out and define your cheekbones. However, I feel like Morphe has included quite a few brushes like this in previous months and I definitely don’t need another. It’s similarin shape to the Y12 from June’s package, and nearly identical to the R8 brush.

  • M536 Under Eye Bullet (synthetic bristles)– this is a rounded, tapered blending brush that is perfect for under the eye. It can be used for liquid, cream, or powder products, but I personally think it’s perfect for setting your under eye concealer with powder. This has become my new favourite! I dip this brush into some loose powder (like this one, or this one!

July’s package has some great brushes, but it wasn’t my personal favourite – mostly because 3 of them are made of animal hair. If you like some but not others, Morphe now gives you the option to swap certain brushes before you receive them!

Hello, July!

Can you believe that we’re already over halfway through 2018?!

My June was full of creative energy, working on creating new wallpapers, and planning new projects.

2017 is a wrap! I can’t say I’m too sad to see it go, as it was certainly a trying year for the world. Though by this point, I’m sure you’re sick of posts talking about how unfortunate of a year it was.

I’d much rather focus on the positive aspects, and wrap it up with an optimistic hope of what 2018 may bring! I’m currently trying to harness all of my creative energy into getting back into blogging and YouTube. I don’t know about you other content creators out there, but I found it hard to find and channel inspiration throughout much of 2017. Even my Instagram suffered, and I posted much less frequently than I had hoped. That’s my first goal of 2018: to post more on Instagram and my blog!

Here’s a recap of my December on Instagram:

I hope you all had a happy and fun holiday season, and I wish you the best for 2018!

Fall is already passing by at the speed of light. While I always wish September lasted longer, I couldn’t be happier about it being October. Halloween to Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year –  Not to mention I leave for Disneyworld with Claudia in 6 days!

Here’s what my month looked like on Instagram!

I’m convinced August didn’t actually happen because I swear I blinked and it passed by in a second. Can you believe it’s already close to the end of 2017!? Not that I’m complaining, 2017 has been a dreadfully comedic crapstorm for global events.

Luckily Instagram always tends to cheer me up – here’s a recap of my month on Instagram!
