This is the first “expensive” brush set I’ve bought myself and still use every brush to this day. There is so much controversy when it comes to Morphe but my experience with them has been good. I’ve experienced some shedding while washing and a couple brushes will shed while I use them on the face, but nothing horrible. I find the fluffy eye brushes to fray out a bit and they can lose their shape. But overall not bad. It is a good chunk of money but brushes are key when it comes to applying makeup. You want to invest in good quality brushes. Bad brushes can make the best makeup look bad while good brushes can make cheap makeup look bomb. This is a great set for beginners because Jaclyn has a video explaining what she uses each brush for.
Not horrible, not the best. It is easy to use. I mainly use it for details or accent work on my eyes but even then you need to layer it a couple times. Layer too much, it starts to crack. But it cracks in general. Sometimes I find too much product gets on the applicator. I think it’s best for photos, I personally wouldn’t wear it out.
These liners are affordable and I like all the shades they offer. I mainly only use these to spice up a look for photos, not wear out in public. They’re not bad, but they crack and some colors you need to layer a few times. Layer too much and it’ll look gunky. They’re easy to use for the most part and can definitely amp up a look. I mainly use these for detail work and small accents.
I find this liner to be easy to use. If you have hooded eyes, a liner like this will be your best friend. You can get a very thin line. It is extremely black, and it is matte. One thing is I can almost feel it on my eye? Once it dries, it almost feels tight on my eye. I’m not sure how to explain it. It’s not super uncomfortable, but I know it’s there. It can crack throughout the day.
I’ve only tried one shade of this, Crystal I think (it’s clear for the most part with some holographic glitter). As far as the shade I used goes, it’s not too pigmented. I have to build it up several times before I get the payoff I want. The applicator is tiny too so it doesn’t hold much product, so again, several dips. However, I don’t use this as an actual eyeliner. Not sure if the other colors are different, but I don’t find it’d be opaque enough to do a liner. I use it more so as an accent. I’ll layer it up in the inner corner, pop it over the lid as a top coat, and put some across my eyeliner for a pop. Because I do have to build it up several times, I find it gunks up. I had it in my inner corner one day and I could feel it there. At the end of the day, I peeled it off like it was glue. Not a bad product, I think it’s cute.
These are very stunning glitters and can add a pop to your looks. You definitely need a glitter primer/glue just like you would with any glitter. I recommend the Nyx glitter glue. I like that the glitter is small and shimmery, not chunky. They are MESSY. But it is GLITTER. All of it is messy. I suggest doing your eyes first if you plan on using it. Removing it can be tricky, but take your time and be careful. Yes, it gets all over your face after washing it. Dry your face off and wipe away with some dry toilet paper. It doesn’t fall off my eye throughout the day. Affordable and I love all the colors.
What a lovely sponge! When you dampen this thing, it gets huge. I personally like bigger sponges because it’s quicker to blend product out. It is crazy soft, it feels very nice bouncing product in. I find it doesn’t soak up much product and blends everything like a dream. It’s easy to clean too, I don’t find any dye coming out of it when washing and there’s been no tearing. I’ve washed it several times too so it’s sturdy. One thing is the tip of it is a little big. It has a small flat edge on the top. It’s not a huge deal, I am able to blend out my undereye easily but I know some are picky about that.
I hear that this is magic for the skin but I get average results. It’s like any other pressed powder to me. It does blend out smoothly but where it has pigment, too much can start to look heavy. But with it having color to it, it does provide that extra coverage. I’ve been using this with a brush, and I’ve tried pushing it into the skin with a sponge. If there’s any technique to it, definitely let me know. I’ll use it until it’s gone, not sure if I’ll rebuy.
I need to use this a few more times but I do think I like it. First off it’s affordable which is always a plus. It does have a slip, silicone feel. Some foundations may not react well to that. As far as pore minimizing, I do notice a difference. Not an “oh my gosh!” difference but it does make them smaller. Oil controlling, I haven’t paid too much attention to my oils but I do think it helps control them. I got this because I had a long shopping day and I checked my face several times, I find I didn’t look as greasy as usual, or maybe I just had a non sweaty day! I only use a small amount and tap it into my trouble areas where there’s pores/where I get oily. Definitely will be using this more.
