I have heard the word ‘Morphe’ kicking about in the blogging and YouTube community for a while now but I always assumed the brands brushes would be far too expensive for me to be able to afford. I’m not a makeup artist and don’t even use brushes for their actual purpose sometimes. Also, seeing that some of my favourite top bloggers and YouTubers mention them quite frequently, I assumed they were out of my price range and I’ve been dodging them.
Fuck me, was I wrong, or was I wrong? On BeautyBay this contour set, a basic but versatile face set that I’ve clearly been needed for years is only £18.25 and they’ve turned out to be the best face brushes I have ever used. No offensive Real Techniques but this set shits on your core collection and that set is more expensive! Crazy. I used to obsess over RT latest ‘Metals’ Collection thinking they were the shit and what I needed to save up for and I don’t retract that they’re not perfect for some but for over £20 a pop, ladies, please don’t piss your money away. Morphe has got you covered!
These brushes are simple in their design but most of all the softest brushes I have ever come across and with no signs of being cheap, at all! Seriously, what more could one ask for? You get three main face brushes for various purposes of your choosing, although they offer guidance, then you get three miniature versions to achieve finer detailing. Contouring has never been so easy and for a dummy like myself, when it come to applying makeup accurately these brushes basically do it for you!
I kid you not, these brushes have hugely changed my makeup game for the better, thank god. Although I probably didn’t wash my original brushes regularly enough, when I did, they still didn’t do it for me. My bronzer was almost always uneven if not streaky, my foundation base was never really blended in or pressed into my skin to its fullest, at times I felt like a mess. It got to a point where I felt I was wasting my time doing my makeup and the fun of it went straight out the window. Obviously, until now. My contour has never looked stronger and my foundation base is a piece of artwork. Better yet, I use less foundation and less bronzer with these brushes because they actually do what they’re supposed to do in a way that is so effortless. Basically, I’m not only being economical with my makeup but I’m also saving a shit tonne of money, so who is the real winner here? Me, I am. Cheers Morphe.
I’m so incredibly chuffed with the price (if you couldn’t already tell) that I’ve decided to dedicate one of the bigger brushes to help me apply my every few days, facial tanner. I did do this as well with my Real Techniques brushes as they began to fall apart but they didn’t do the job as well as I’d hoped. However, I was at a point where anything was better than staining my own hands.
For facial tanner I either use, a Chanel facial tanner or the St Tropez naturals facial tanner which are both liquid/moisturisers. I’ve been using the big round top Morphe brush and I buff the tanner into my skin and blend it down my neck and achieve the most even, natural glow I’ve ever achieved before. No streaking, no uneven blotchiness around my hairline, everything has become so incredibly easy. These brushes provide and conquer whatever needs doing and I’m totally embracing it but also kicking myself at the same time for being an ‘ass’ and assuming they were ridiculously expensive all this time!
What’s also really nice, is that these brushes are so easily replaceable because of their price. Looking at the quality I don’t think I’d be needing to replace them anytime soon but in case I wanted to devote more of the bigger brushes for other tanning purposes, I could easily purchase another set. I would be able to give each brush a purpose and be able to replace some of my older brushes and avoid the dual use of brushes too, which can involve in-between application cleaning. Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat.
So there you go, my run down and opinions on the Morphe, 6 Piece Deluxe Contour Brush Set. Your welcome.
