I’m so excited to be sharing the first Morphe Me package of 2018! I’ve been subscribed to this monthly brush package for over a year now, and while I definitely don’t need any more brushes, I just can’t bring myself to cancel the subscription. It’s such a great value, and I’m a serious brush-junkie.

To ring in the new year, this month’s brush package includes 3 different face brushes from the gorgeous Gunmetal collection. These brushes also feature Morphe’s sleek new logo font.

This month’s brushes:

  • G39 Deluxe Foundation: synthetic bristles. This smaller, slightly dense brush offers a unique shape that is neither dense nor fluffy, but a great middle ground.  ideal for blending out foundation and concealer. It’s not round or puffy, but thicker and fluffier than your standard flat paddle-style foundation brush. Flat paddle brushes tend to just wipe foundation on the skin, leaving a streaky finish. The G39 is a much better alternative, as it diffuses liquid products really well, especially if you’re seeking a soft and natural finish! This is my favourite brush from this month’s package.

 

  • G5 Pointed Powdersynthetic bristles. This fluffy brush has a rounded, tapered end. The fluffiness makes this ideal for powder, but the size and tapered edge mean it can be used all over the face! It’s great for setting concealer under the eyes, setting foundation, or applying blush to the cheeks. I personally love a brush like this to blend away the excess powder used when baking your contour. They’ve launched a few brushes that are similar in shape, however I have none in my collection with this exact size, fluffiness, or tapered top. It initially looks similar to the E3 and the Real Techniques brush, however these 2 are larger, less dense, and not as tapered.

 

  • G42 1” Flat Contour: this thin brush has a flat top, and is a perfect shape for contouring to sculpt out your features – especially the nose area. Personally, I find a shape like this to be a tad too small and precise for contouring my cheeks, but it works perfectly for the nose. This is the big brother to the G41 (which came in the May 2017 Brush package!) The G41 is tiny compared to this one; the G42 is large, a bit thicker, and has slightly longer bristles. I use a brush like this to contour my nose every day – and this might just become my new favourite!

 

All of the brushes are extremely soft, and the Gun Metal collection feels very sleek and luxurious. To check out the previous Gun Metal brushes included in the Morphe Me subscription, you can read my review here! 

Another new feature Morphe has added is the ability to skip certain brushes from each month and swap them for a different one! You can read more about that here.

Morphe Me Brush Subscription – August 2017 Review

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.

I’ve been subscribed to the Morphe Me brush package for nearly a year now, and while I now have more brushes than I’ll ever need, I just can’t bring myself to cancel my subscription. Receiving my brushes is my favourite part of the month, and it’s such a darn good value.

February’s package was of course Valentine’s themed, and featured 3 brushes from the Gunmetal collection. These brushes are sleek, luxurious, and absolutely gorgeous. I also think this month featured some unique brushes, which I have nothing like in my collection.

The brushes included (from left to right)

G34 Mini Round Buffer: (synthetic bristles) this rounded, dense brush is perfect for blending out under eye concealer. Its rounded tip allows you to get right into the inner corners of the eye to diffuse and blend concealer. You could also use this for cream contouring, as it’s a perfect shape to sculpt out the cheekbones! It’s so soft, and has quickly become my go-to brush for under eye concealer. It really is the perfect shape.

 G33 Angle Buffer: (synthetic bristles) this is definitely one of the most uniquely-shaped brushes I have seen. it’s angled and pointed, and shaped kind of like a scalene triangle (bringing back any traumatic memories from math class, anyone?) This could be used for cream, liquid, or powder. I think it’s great for getting into those hard to reach areas, such as the creases by the nose and underneath the lash line! I tried using it with under eye concealer to create that sharp line to clean up liner, and it was awesome for that! It’s also fantastic for creating a sharp contour.

G36 Round Powder: (synthetic bristles) this mid-sized buffing brush is densely packed, and is definitely a multi-function brush. It can be used with liquid or powder products, such as liquid foundation, cream makeup, pressed or loose powder, and more. It’s slightly rounded tip makes it really great for blending cream products into the skin. I personally have been loving this to blend cream contour, because it’s size and shape do it so effortlessly and really create a clean blend. You can use the G34 to draw on your contour, and blend it out with the G36!

Once again, I’m so happy with the brushes. I think the G33 and G34 are really unique brushes that are awesome to add to your collection if you’re a junkie like I am!
