MorpheMe Brush Club Subscription Box Review – February 2016
Morphe Me Monthly Brush Club is a monthly subscription that exclusively sends you cosmetic brushes. They guarantee at least $30 in brushes in every delivery.
I used to work at Sephora, and one of my favorite things I learned in my time there is that the “rules” for what to use brushes for are definitely “guidelines.” There are some general features to brushes that affect their performance, but if you find a way to make a brush work for you that you like, use it like that! Plus, the internet is an amazing resource for usage tips and tutorials!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes)

M334 Brush, Mini Angled Buffer Brush – value: $5.99
For synthetic bristles, this brush is very soft! I like this kind of brush for a transition color/color you want on a large part of your lid, or even for highlighting with a liquid highlighter. For example, I love Benefit’s High Beam and I can dab that on my face and use this to blend it well, or put it on the back of my hand and use this to apply + blend.
M495 Brush, Duo Deluxe Fan – value: $9.99
Fan brushes are great for lighter application of powders. I like to use them for powder highlighting, or even setting powder. With a fan brush this big, you’ll want something you don’t need precise application for (like blush).
M224 Brush, Oval Camoflauge – value: ?
Some of these brushes are out of stock on their website, so I don’t really know where to estimate price points (especially because some brushes are $2, some are $15, so there’s a wide range that I don’t know where to guess from).
This brush is great for concealer. I’d probably recommend this for spot-concealing more than under-eye because this has dense bristles and will be able to apply a good amount of product where you’re using it and you’ll want to be careful to not cake product in your under eye area.
M218 Brush, Blending Fluff – value: $2.99
This is a great brush for blending eyeshadow. Once you’ve initially applied your shadows, using this with a light touch will help blend them together.
M165 Brush, Angle Liner/Brow – value: $2.99
This brush has very dense bristles, so it will pick up a lot of product and therefore place a lot of product where you use it. Great for brows and eyeliners!
M333 Brush, Chisel Shader – value: ?
This brush is a good one for smudging shadow or eyeliner (think for smokey eyes and such). It’s dense bristles, again, mean it’ll pick up a lot of pigment, so you can also use it for a cut crease or something, too.
M169 Brush, Round Crease Brush – value: ?
This is great for applying eyeshadow to – you guessed it! – your crease. This shape of brush really helps you get precise about where you want your pigment.
Verdict: My first impression of the MorpheMe Monthly Brush Club is a good one! I like the quality and feel of the brushes, and it seems like a really nice value as well. I wasn’t able to do any kind of precise estimate because some of the brushes are out of stock, but from the prices I do have, it definitely looks like I have over $30 in brushes here.
