More Morphe, Please!

September 22, 2017

Morphe has been on the tip of many a MUA's tongue and a constant in makeup discussions for the past two years now. People rave about the brand best known for their expansive eyeshadow palettes & fancy brushes, but I hadn't bought in to the hype until this past June when I began investigating closer having seen some stunning makeup looks and brush results thanks to good ol' Instagram (namely Jaclyn Hill, Rachel Leary, and Desi Perkins).

 

Thus, I decided to take a gamble and order a few products from the line. To be completely honest, I was floored by the prices - in the BEST way possible! I mean, a 12-piece brush set for $25?! You could buy one eyeshadow brush from MAC for $25, but 12 of them plus a chic faux leather case? And then there are the eyeshadow palettes where you get 35 colors for a casual $23?!

 

After glancing at these outrageously low prices and picking my jaw up off the floor, I began second-guessing these products' integrity. Surely something has to give with prices this low. Having experienced a similar price drop and poor quality with BH Cosmetics a few years ago, I thought Morphe and their "cheap" products were most likely too good to be true.

 

 

My adorable brush set and three eyeshadow palettes arrived and I couldn't wait to dive in. The brushes were all synthetic hairs, but full, thick, and relatively soft. I will say they aren't the most comfortable brushes I've ever felt, but they certainly do the job, and you really can't complain about a $2 brush. There were two blush/contour brushes, a foundation brush, a concealer brush, one lip or tiny concealer brush, two crease blending brushes (one pear-shaped, one circular-shaped), one angled eyeshadow blending brush, one large lid-packing brush, one small lid-packing brush, one thick smudging brush, and one angled brow brush, all contained in a cylindrical black-and-white striped brush holder! I love the slender handles and simplistic packaging, making them easy to pack for personal use or shove into a makeup brush belt for my kit. The fluffy brushes do have a bit of hair fallout probably due to the low-budget make of the brush, and I have yet to determine their longevity seeing as they're only 3-months-old. They've adequately survived several washings already, so that's a great sign! 

 

All in all, I have to say I'm a fan of Morphe and their marketing choices. Without much brand-organized fanfare or luxurious but highly unnecessary packaging, they've managed to create a reasonable brand for the low- and middle-class masses that is budget-friendly and great quality. Go get yourself a few new Morphe items to spice up your fall beauty routine...
