I realise everything I’m blogging about at the moment is old news, but I’ve had so much I’ve wanted to share on my blog for so long and so many pictures I need to put to use, I’m just a bit like whatever. This blog is my space and I can talk about whatever I want to on here, no pressure. So the Jeffree Star makeup brush collaboration with Morphe is a good space to start. So the Morphe collab with Jeffree Star was actually something that coaxed my love for beauty out of whatever rock it was dying under. I don’t really have much love for Jeffree, but I do trust that whatever he sticks his name to will be of good quality. Which these brushes are. I’ll start from the top.
This one is essentially the foundation brush. It’s made out of synthetic hair, but is still ridiculously soft. It’s a rounded brush which I quite like and blends foundation in quite easily. Will it replace my beauty blender? Probably not, but this is what I reach for when I decide a foundation needs a brush to be blended and buffed.
This is the contour/powder brush, also made out of synthetic hair. I wish I could say I reached for this more, but I really don’t. I find it doesn’t pick up as much product as I want to do the job I want it to do. I use this more as a blending brush if I go too heavy handed. I wish I could say this is revolutionary, but I have other brushes for contour I prefer. For me, this is still a work in progress to find the perfect use for.
This is probably my favourite brush of them all. Another synthetic brush, but this one is designed to be used to contour. I find it’s perfect though for blending out any cream products. It really works them into the skin for a seamless look. I appreciate the fact it doesn’t disturb your foundation and create that caked look. If you buy one brush, make it this one.
The highlight brush is another one I regularly use when I want a diffused, natural look. This one is natural, fyi. No matter how much I have tried, this is not the brush to pack a punch with. My fingers do a better job of that than this brush ever will. However, am I mad at this brush? Not at all. It’s a good pick if you’re into layering and building up from natural to intense, rather than taking you all the way there straight away. I like it.
I like this brush for blending out eyeshadow in my crease, and that is what this natural haired brush is designed for. Between this brush and my Zoeva one, I’m not a complete lost cause when it comes to my eyeliner.
Whilst this is the eyeshadow blender brush, I much prefer to use this to pack eyeshadow onto my lid. It’s a bit too thick for blending in my opinion, but I do love it for that all over lid look.
This is your standard eyebrow brush. I really can’t say anything more about it. It’s designed beautifully, however that’s the summary of this brush. It’s really no worse or no better than any other dual ended eyebrow brush. If you have the money to splurge because you love the design, then go for it. If you see a cheaper alternative, it’ll most likely do the same job.
All in all this is a solid makeup brush collection. They wash well, I’ve had no fallout with mine. The pink design I do kind of like, and the range gets bonus points from me for that theme they have going on. Whilst they aren’t a necessity, I do regularly use them. I also quite like the case they come in, I’e started using that as my go to makeup brush case.
Have you tried the Jeffree Star x Morphe brushes? What were your thoughts?
