Morphe Brushes Review

I was in dire need to update my brush collection, as I have using my Real Techniques core collection for almost 2 years now. (Wow)! I have heard rave reviews about Morphe as a brand, so thought I would give their brushes a go.

I bought the  Morphe Brushes 600 12 Piece Sable Brush Set and the Morphe Brushes 700 8 Piece Candy Apple Red Brush Set. Both were surprisingly cheap, £11.25 and £11.95, which is why my expectations were lower, some brushes exceeded my opinions whereas others didn’t.

The packaging is ideal for travelling as both sets have a leather case, and don’t take up much space, easy to slip into a handbag.


Morphe Brushes 600 12 Piece Sable Brush Set

This Set Includes:
FullSizeRender (2)

  1. Brow Groomer
  2. Spoolie
  3. Flocked Sponge
  4. Pointer Liner Brush
  5. Angled Liner Brush
  6. Soft Fan Brush
  7. Smudger Brush
  8. Oval Lip Brush
  9. Chisel Fluff Brush
  10. Oval Fluff Brush
  11. Tapered Blush Brush
  12. Tapered Powder Brush

This set was £11.25 for 12 brushes, which I consider a fair price. I have had this set for about 3 weeks now, and to be honest, I am not sure whether I like it. The brushes were not as soft as I expected, some were actually irritating my skin. Every brush is really lightweight too, although some would say that’s a good thing; it feels cheap. It’s not expected from a brand as well known as Morphe. Another major downer is the amount these brushes shed. The last thing I want is to apply my foundation and then have to pick of 10 million hairs off my face (slight exaggeration). IMG_0846

However, the quality of some of the brushes are amazing; in particular the eye liners and eye brushes. The finish of eyeshadows and liners look sooo good. It’s also great how the bigger brushes have their own case to maintain their shape.

  1. Tapered Powder Brush
  2. Tapered Blush Brush
  3. Flat Foundation Brush
  4. Oval Fluff Brush
  5. Chisel Fluff Brush
  6. Pointed Crease Brush
  7. Angle Liner Brush
  8. Bent Liner Brush

In all honesty, this brush set is a world apart from the  Morphe Brushes 600 12 Piece Sable Brush Set, it is so much better! The brushes are a fair bit heavier, giving a more luxurious feel and the quality of the brushes are outstanding. The only downsides are the tapered powder brush, as it does shed (A LOT), and the fact that some of the brushes do not pick as much product as I would like, but that’s just me being picky. My favourite brush overall is the flat foundation because the size is so big, the product can be applied very quickly.


Overall, I would rate these brushes a 7 / 10, purely because a lot of the brushes I personally did not like, due to shedding and pure quality. However, a few of these brushes are exceptional, so it’s not a completely bad purchase. For anyone that needs a wide range of brushes, I would recommend the Morphe Brushes 700 8 Piece Candy Apple Red Brush Set, and to buy the eye brushes from the Morphe Brushes 600 12 Piece Sable Brush Set separately, because they are the best brushes of the set. Hope this helps!

    I find that if you buy Morphe’s brush sets the quality isn’t as good as the individual brushes. The individual ones from the Elite II collection and the Master Pro collection are amazing!

      Ah okay, I was thinking that the individual brushes must be better, thanks for letting me know, and thank you again, I might go and try them out!

      Me neither – it’s why some of the brushes were a real disappointment
