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.

 

Morphe Me October

Morphe Me October 2018 Brushes:

  • 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.

Happy June, everyone! Summer is here in full force, and my Morphe Me monthly brush subscription arrived just in time.

This month’s Morphe Me brush package includes 3 gold brushes inspired by achieving the “perfect blend.”

June 2018 Brushes:

  • Y7 – Round Buffer: (synthetic bristles) this is a dense, rounded kabuki brush. It’s perfect for buffing liquid or powder products into the skin, such as foundation and powder. This is the brush I was most excited for this month. This specific style of brush I find to be unique in how dense and rounded it is. It’s extremely soft, and blends foundation into the skin really easily. I prefer a brush like this as opposed to a flat-topped brush because it gives a more natural finish.

How I like to use it:

  • I personally love to use this brush for powder foundation, like the Nude by Nature Radiant Loose Powder foundation (my current favourite!)

  • Y1 – Precision Pointed Powder: (synthetic bristles) this is a fluffy, medium-sized brush with a tapered tip. Brushes like this can be used in a variety of ways, such as setting your foundation with powder, applying blush or bronzer, and more. There have been a couple brushes included in previous Morphe Me packages that are similar in style (such as the Morphe R3 from the March 2018 Morphe Me package) or the Morphe E3. The Y1, however, is smaller and more tapered than both the R3 and E3.

How I like to use it:

  • My personal favourite way to use a brush like this is to set my foundation and concealer with powder. This brush is perfect for dipping into a loose setting powder and gently pressing against the skin to set any liquid or cream products.

Here’s a comparison of the Y1 and the R3:

  • Y12 – Pro Flat Contour: (synthetic bristles) this is a small, flat, dense brush. It’s ideal for contouring, such as contouring the cheeks and nose as it’s small and precise. This brush is very similar to the G42 which came in a previous Morphe Me package – however, it is a bit thicker and larger than the G42. I think a brush like this is a must-have for any contour lovers, as it precisely sculpts your features better than any other brushes, but also allows you to blend your contour out as well.

How I like to use it:

  • I personally love to use this brush to contour my nose, as the size fits perfectly. It applies and blends your contour powders and products easily and quickly!

If you’re interested in joining the Morphe Me monthly brush subscription (you receive 3-7 brushes every month for only $19.99!) you can sign up here and receive a bonus brush!

This month’s Morphe Me brush review is a tad late (ironically the month the package arrives early happens to be the month I’m crazy busy with work!) but I figured late is always better than never!

The November brush package is called “Friendsgiving” and is themed based off the American Thanksgiving Holiday! As a thank you, Morphe included a bonus Blending Sponge!

This month’s package includes:

morphe-november

  • The M528 Pointed Contour: made with natural goat hair bristles, this tapered brush is ideal for contour or highight. It’s relatively dense, and the tapered point makes it great for sculpting out a precise contour, or for adding some highlighter to your cheekbones! I love to use brushes like this by dipping them in a bit of loose powder, and using it to clean up my contour or blush!

 

  • M517 Jumbo Crease: this brush is also made of natural goat hair, and is definitely more of a unique shape. It’s a thicker, wider, and generally larger than the average pencil brush. It’s dense with a slightly rounded tip, so it’s great for blending out colours in the crease, or to soften/buff out harsh lines.

 

  • M551 Tapered Powder Brush: This is the brush I was most excited to receive! It’s another natural hair brush with Sable bristles. This brush is fluffy, large, and perfect for powder, blush, or bronzer. This is almost an exact dupe to the Mac 150 Powder Brush. I love my Mac 150, and use it every single day for bronzer or for a light, quick contour. I really wanted another brush with this shape! Not to mention the Morphe M551 is about 1/3 of the price!

 

  • Flawless Beauty Sponge: included as a bonus, this is a soft sponge made for applying cream or liquid foundations, and blending in concealer. It’s similar in use and feel to the Beauty Blender or Real Techniques sponges. It’s slightly firmer, and the shape takes a little getting used to. I can’t decide yet whether I prefer this to my Real Techniques sponge, but for the price it works really well! I can always use more sponges like this, as I use them everyday!

Morphe Me Monthly Brush Club – October Review

 

Another month, another fabulous brush package! Receiving my Morphe Me package is honestly my favourite part of the month – going to the mailbox to get my package makes me feel like a giddy kid on Christmas morning.

This month’s package was particularly exciting, because as I opened up the pamphlet I happened to see MY OWN FACE inside! Morphe shared one of comments raving about how much I love the subscription! Admittedly, I screamed when I saw my own face – I had no idea they were going to share my comment and Instagram! I was so excited and grateful. It was definitely a fantastic way to start the month!

This month was also particularly special, because October’s package was themed for Breast Cancer Awareness! This month’s features 3 gorgeous Gunmetal limited edition exlusive brushes for Morphe Me members! That’s right! These brushes are not – and will not – be available to the public!

The LGM1 Flat Contour: (synthetic bristles) this is a flat, dense brush that is ideal for contouring and sculpting out the face. It’s similar to the Mac 163, though I find the Morphe brush to be much softer! This is one of my favourite shapes to use for contouring; it makes contouring so easy, because the shape creates the perfect sculpted line for you. I can create a super precise and insanely fast contour with this bad boy. Because it’s dense and synthetic, it will also work very well with cream products!

LGM2 Small Pointed Powder:  (synthetic bristles) This brush is fluffier than the LGM1, rounded, with longer bristles and a bit of an egg-shape. While it is fluffier than the previous, it still has a density to it that allows it to be a very multi-purpose brush. It works great with powder – to set the under eyes, to blend away powder from baking, to apply blush, to set other other areas of the face, or to contour – or you could even use it with cream or liquid foundation (though I personally think it may absorb too much of the foundation.)

LGM3 Tapered Blending Fluff: (synthetic bristles) this is technically an eyeshadow brush, but can be used in a multitude of ways. The bristles come to a slight tapered point, so you get into the crease of the eye really well. The bristles are longer, so you can apply and blend colour with one brush! This would also be a great brush to use to blend out nose contour, or to highlight the brow bone and cupids bow! Like with the previous brushes, its synthetic bristles allow it to work well with powder or cream products!

While I do definitely love this brush and think it works well, I do agree with other reviews that Morphe has included some brushes similar to this in previous months (for example, 2 of the brushes included in April’s Morphe Me package and the M441 from May’s package)
