Morphe Brushes Brush Review

Quite a while ago I did a review on some of the single eye shadows that I purchased from Morphe Brushes (click HERE). Today I’m finally going to be reviewing some of their brushes that I bought recently. After trying out their shadows and being impressed with their quality, especially for being so affordable, I thought it was about time I tried some of their brushes. I really needed some blending brushes so I searched their website for quite some time, trying to figure out which would be best, and I finally just decided to purchase a few brushes from their Gun Metal line. I only purchased two different types of brushes but I bought two of each type. I also decided to purchase a brow brush as well but from a different collection. After using these brushes for a while now, I really do like them and reach for them a lot because they have some great qualities, but they also have a few flaws that you might want to be aware of before you purchase. 


The two blending brushes that I purchased were the G17 and G24. These brushes aren’t actually metal but just have the look of metal. After unwrapping the brushes the first quality I noticed right away was how lightweight they felt. I couldn’t even tell they were in my hands! The bristles on both brushes are synthetic and feel extremely soft. In the photos online, the G17 bristles look thinner than the G24 bristles, which look wider and fluffier. The bristles on my brushes, however, are actually reversed where the G17 is wider and the G24 is thinner. I’m not sure why that is but it doesn’t bother me too much because they are quite similar with just a tiny variation between them. The bristles pick up a good amount of product and blend it out really well. I have never had a problem with the bristles falling out and overall I feel these brushes are made quite well. At first they felt low quality but I think it’s because they feel so lightweight. Overall, I really like these brushes and their performance.

 
Top is G17 and bottom is G24.

The other brush I purchased was the S25 which has thin angled bristles on one end and a spoolie on the other end. I love brushes like this because it makes it easier having two tools together instead of separately. I can brush and fill in my brows with just one tool so it also saves space! This brush also feels lightweight but it’s definitely not as well made as the other brushes. The funnel on the end with the bristles came apart so I had to glue it back together. While that is annoying, it doesn’t bother me too much because it is easy to glue it back together. The spoolie on the other end feels a little loose but it hasn’t come apart yet. It’s disappointing but so far these aren’t problems that I can’t fix and deal with. The bristles don’t fall out and they pick up a great amount of product as well as make it super easy to apply the product. I love using this brush with my gel and wax brow products. Overall, the quality of the handle of the brush isn’t the best, but the actual performance of the brush is. 

 

After trying these brushes out I’m a bit on the fence about whether they’re worth trying out or not. The actual performance of the brushes and quality of the bristles are great. However, I’m not sure about how well they’re made. I guess for the price I wouldn’t mind trying some more of their brushes but I would just be wary about them falling apart on me. If you need some brushes for an affordable price then I would first try the Gun Metal line because they are made differently so I don’t think they would fall apart as easily. If you’re interested in any other brushes then I would recommend looking up some more reviews to see if anyone else has had problems because it may just be the brush that I received. Hope this review helps you out and if you have tried any of the brushes then I would love to know your thoughts on them!!
