Morphe Brushes Review and FOTD

Please note that the items below were obtained free of charge for blogging purposes.
 As you all know from my PHAMExpo blog post, I had the pleasure of visiting the Morphe Brushes booth recently. Before PHAME I received a promotional email from Morphe saying I should stop by their booth and build a 4 pan eye shadow palette for free. I had forgotten all about that email during PHAME and only stopped by the booth because of the HUGE selection of brushes they had on display. I was in brush heaven!! I could have spent a small fortune on new brushes but sadly I had spent almost all of my fun money earlier in the day so I only picked out a few. I decided on a few more odds and ends and then at the checkout I handed my blogger media/press sheet to the guy working the booth who then brought over Linda who was a complete doll! She told me I could have my whole basket for free and also let me pick the 4 pan eye shadow palette.

You can check out Morphe makeup paletttes here and individual shadows here.
The individual shadows are only $2 each. Super bargain!

 I decided to build a neutral palette. I know that is odd since I am normally so colorful but I am finding there are certain neutrals I am missing in my collection. I actually only have two neutral palettes, one is primarily matte and the other is shimmer. Anyhow I wanted to get some darker, smoky purple and red based neutrals.

Intense Reddish Brown
This color over a base is such a different color than without!

 Burgundy with Red Shimmer

Muted Blackish Brown

I can't find this one on their site, their 45 is purple, this could be 20

I have to say I am floored by the quality of these shadows. I have an 88 palette and a neutral palette by other private label companies and the quality is quite blah so I thought these may not be that great but I was wrong. They have really nice pigmentation, they blend easily and the texture is really smooth. I really like these colors I picked, they are very warm and rich. The magnetic palette is $4.99 for a 4 pan and available here. I plan on building a big neutral palette for my MUA kit soon.

I used the entire palette for the look below

                       Metal Eyelash Definer - $3.89
                     I got this for my MUA kit because it is metal it can be sanitized easily.

I am a sucker for any type of crease brush. I love them. This brush is badger and is really great.
It is a very cheap alternative to my favorite MAC #222 and Hakuhodo crease brush.
I used it in the look above in the crease and to blend.

I also got this brush for my MUA kit.

In addition to my addiction to buying crease brushes I also have an addiction to brush cleaning supplies. I love trying new things. This cleaner caught my eye because of the disinfection properties. All of the brush cleansers I have do not contain anything that will disinfect my brushes so I normally spray them down with alcohol after washing. I used this spray as a disinfectant after washing.

Lastly I got this rad leopard brush apron. I have been doing a lot more MUA work and thought this would be nice to use instead of the brush roll I have been using. It can hold a TON of brushes and tools and is made of plastic so it can be wiped down and sanitized easily. I cant find this style on the Morphe site but they have a wide variety of  brush aprons and holder to choose from. Check it out here.

My overall opinion of Morphe Brushes and their products is a good one. I really love their eye shadows and their brushes are great and CHEAP! I plan on shopping again with Morphe Brushes very soon. I want to try a ton of other brushes and other items. You can shop online with Morphe Brushes or you can visit their retail shop at 616 Victory Blvd. in Burbank, CA. I am fairly local so I hope to check out their retail shop soon!

Thanks so much to Linda from Morphe Brushes for the goodies! Also check back VERY soon because Linda and I are collaborating on a giveaway for you all! You won't want to miss it!
