During my second semester of Cosmetology school I had to take my Makeup & Facials class. Due to the fact that at my school you receive your entire kit when you start school I knew that I was NOT going to have enough brushes to do much of anything. At the end of the previous semester I decided to order a set of makeup brushes to use in class. When I started school the dream was to one day have the Complete Brush Set that Sigma sells, however, when I went to purchase my brushes for class we did not have that kind of cash lying around. So off to Amazon I went to search for makeup brushes and wouldn’t you know on one of the first few pages there was a Morphe Brush Set. I couldn’t believe my eyes, I figured that even though this was probably one of their cheaper quality sets I’d get it. My initial thought was that I was going to cover these after using them once or twice on my mannequin. However, I decided that I would wait and actually use them on a couple of different people before I reviewed them. It is now time for me to tell you exactly what I thought about the Morphe Brush Set I purchased.
Before I tell you my thoughts though, let’s discuss the Morphe Brush Set that I purchased. I purchased the 18 piece vegan brush set that comes with a travel brush holder. The first thing to note about the Morphe Brush Set is that the bristles of the brush are all densely packed and are not super loose, they are also not made with animal hairs. Moving down the brush, the ferrule of the brush is a metallic silver and the handle of the brush is wooden. The brushes are all long handled ranging from 6 ¼” to 7 ½”. The brushes come in a holder that is kind of satiny on the inside and pleather on the outside. The case when closed measures to be 9 ½” by 5 ⅝” and 20” by 9 ½” when it’s closed. The interior of the case has a flap that can be raised up when the brushes are in use or lowered over the brushes for sanitation in between uses. The outside of the case has two magnetic snaps on the top and the bottom. Lastly, the brushes are said to be useable in liquid, cream, and powder products.
Let’s talk about that pouch shall we? If you are looking at buying some single brushes, or another set, versus this particular set and the pouch is swaying you towards this brush set…DON’T DO IT. Seriously just back away now. The pouch is super stiff with no give and due to the no give it can be very difficult to get the top of the pouch to meet the bottom in order to fasten the magnetic closures. In addition to that the closures will sometimes come unsnapped due to the stiffness. Lastly, the pouch has a very cheap look and feel to it. You could dress it up with some vinyl and/or stickers but honestly I would just recommend upgrading your brush case if you purchase this kit.
Now if you’re actually looking to purchase this specific Morphe Brush Set or you don’t care about uprgrading your pouch then keep reading. Morphe has risen very fast over the last few years and I think a lot of that is due to some of the bigger YouTubers raving about their products, i.e. Jaclyn Hill, but sometimes a company rising that fast and big YouTubers raving about it doesn’t always equate to a great product. I can honestly say that with this particular Morphe Brush Set that is not the case. The brushes feel so soft on the skin that several clients asked if they could have the ones I was using. In addition to their soft feel they also clean up very well. What I mean by that is that if I’m working somewhere and I’m going to be using the same brushes on multiple clients I need to be able to clean my brushes in between fast and well. I have found that other brushes that I was using at the beginning of my makeup class were not getting as clean as the Morphe Brush Set would using the same cleaner. On top of that, even though they were super dense they were drying faster than the other brushes were. For those reasons alone I was sold on the Morphe Brush Set but they actually got better. Remember earlier when I said that they can be used with liquid, cream, and powder products? A lot of brushes claim that but I have over my self-taught years that this is not always the case. This Morphe Brush Set lives up to it’s claims! I’ve used the big fluffy brush for setting powders, I’ve used the tapered brush for liquid foundation, and I’ve used the angled brush for cream cheek products. Plus the eye brushes can be used wet or dry! You really can use them in just about any type of product!
Overall if you’re in the market for makeup brushes, whether as a makeup artist or you’re just looking to purchase your first brush set, this Morphe Brush Set should be one that you check out. Honestly I’m going to need some more brushes when I get out of school as I get more clients and I’m seriously thinking about just purchasing another one of these Morphe Brush Sets.
