When my #MorpheMe brushes arrived yesterday my mom was like: Simone, really…more brushes? I don’t know how to respond to people who don’t understand the struggle to build up your perfect brush collection. Especially on a budget. Though if I am perfectly honest, I am at this stage just wanting that one perfect fluffy face brush, and my brush buying days are over. Maybe. Ish.
If you follow these ‘unbaggings’ (because it comes in a bag….not a box. How smart am I?), you’ll see there was nothing for June. The reason for that is that I paused my subscription for the month. There was nothing that appealed to me, and I didn’t feel like trading. I went the responsible route and spent the money on other unnecessary makeup my kids of course. ha ha. I really love the flexibility that comes with this #MorpheMe subscription.
The July box preview showed that we would be receiving eye brushes, 8 of them, so I was super stoked and activated my subscription again. Let’s see what I got 😉
1. E27 Pro Round Blender Brush
Tapered blending brush with a fat, rounded tip for buffing in color and blurring away harsh lines. (RSP $6.99)
2. M207 Sable Angle liner
A liner brush. (RSP $2.99)
3. M250-2 Detail liner
An ultra-fine detailed liner with a long tip to create defined, artful strokes with control. (RSP $2.49)
4. M411 Pointed Blender
This looks like a smaller version of my Inglot 6SS brush, but a bit more dense. This would be nice for depositing colour in the outer corner of the eye and blending it into the crease. (RSP $4.99)
5. M173 Mini Buffer
A short, dense buffer brush with a rounded tip that’s perfect for precision work in the corners of the eyes and around the nose. Use it to blend out under eye concealer or place cream contour products for a defined, sculpted look. (RSP $4.99)
6. M331 Jumbo Crease
This large, tapered brush is perfect for a soft wash of color in the crease and for blending out an over application of color. (RSP $3.99)
7. M170-2 Oval Taklon Lip
Long-lasting lips begin with a precise brush that allows you to flawlessly place lipsticks and lip gloss. The perfect companion to our lipstick palette, and great for cleaning up the edges for a perfect pout. (RSP $1.99)
8. M168 Precise Bullet Crease
This is implied for the crease, but I think it would be great for an inner corner highlight or to smudge out the lower lash line. (RSP $2.99)
That’s a total value of $31.42/R406, an average of R50 per brush and I spent a total of $29 for the brushes and shipping. I don’t think I can buy decent brushes in SA for R50 each? The E27 I have seen the You Tube gurus use, so that one I am most excited about.
Gals, that’s a wrap for my July #MorpheMe ‘unbagging’.
