So if you are an Instagram obsessive like me you may have seen a brand called Morphe Brushes. They are a US company who make the most AMAZING brushes and make up, lots of celebrities and make up artists rave about them and so I thought it would be rude not to give them a try.
I purchased the Morphe 06CF Cream Contour palette, 35K Koffee palette and the rose gold 7 piece brush set.
Ok, first up, the 06CF cream contour palette. I had a quick look on Youtube for a tutorial on this and could not find one for love nor money! No idea why because this palette is IMMENSE! As you can see from the photos the palette is made up of 6 pans, however, these are not regular make up size, they are supersize make up. There are 4 skin tone shades, 1 white and 1 contour shade each measuring a whopping 2 and half inch diameter! I can contour until I am 40 with this badboy! The creams are also really opaque which I like, they blend beautifully and sink into my skin like butter.
Next up is the 35K Koffee palette, featuring 35 eyeshadows. The colours range from a soft frothy latte right through to Cleopatra gold, burnished bronze to glistening copper, sultry grey to blackest black and every tone in-between. I can see me getting a lot of use out of this during Autumn and into the New Year party season, it is just so versatile and the range of colours means I can turn out a different look everyday. The formulas are also fantastic, the eyeshadows are soft and cream but heavily pigmented. I swatched all the colours on my arm and they did not need much persuading to give up their deep, jewel tones against my skin. To say I love this is an understatement.
Last but not least, the Rose Gold 7 Piece Brush Set. This set comes in a really sweet leather look cannister, which could double up as 2 storage pots or as a travel brush case. The brushes are beautiful, all stamped with MORPHE and capped in rose gold. They do not shed and believe me I tried! They are the best brushes I have ever bought and I cannot wait to collect some more! The brushes included in this set are – all purpose powder/dust off brush, angled powder contour brush, flat foundation brush(I use this one for cream contouring), Small angled fluffy brush, could be used on eyes or to sharpen contour, fluffy eyeshadow brush, short flat eyeshadow brush and a small fine tip brush.
I realise I have totally neglected to mention money, how much do these things actually cost? Well the contour palette is $18.99, the 35K Koffee palette and 7 piece brush set are both $19.99
I think you will agree that Morphe Brushes offer amazing value without compromising on quality one bit, if you are considering these products go for it, I promise you will not be disappointed.
