5 Morphe Brushes To Try For A Flawless Base!

Morphe was just added to the list of new brands coming to Ulta Beauty on October 22nd online. With this announcement it seemed like the perfect time to talk about my 5 must have Morphe Brushes. When it comes to the brand, there can be a bit of a debate over them.

Many large Influencers on YouTube with millions of subscribers all push for their brushes and makeup. The brand is very appealing because they come with an affordable price tag on all their products. The catch? The You Tubers use affiliate codes and many people think this is the only reason they give this brand good reviews because they receive a commission if a consumer uses that Influencers code.  The code allows for a discount for when you purchase directly from the Morphe site. It usually covers the shipping if you are not spending the amount for free shipping which is $75.00. Although I can appreciate the concern and debates, this is not something that I personally worry about and I always love a discount! lol

If I want to try something I do and if I do not like the product it gets returned.  A little over a year ago I decided to jump on the Morphe Brushes bandwagon as there are many people who do love these brushes and products to see for myself.  Another great reason to try? Morphe Brushes are also widely discussed online as dupes for MAC brushes. I could not resist and wanted to find out for myself.

Morphe Brushes

Verdict? In my opinion they are fabulous for makeup application, clean well and durable. Add in an affordable price tag, they are a win for me! Now I can only speak on these brushes, as I  have never tried their eye shadow brushes. I purposely left mine dirty for their photo shoot so you can see how loved they are.  Lets get into the breakdown.

Morphe Brushes For a Flawless Base:

  • M527 Deluxe Pointed Powder Brush $16.00: This brush is specific for bronzer and is made with goat hair. Bronzer goes on with ease and powder blends out nicely. It is known to be a dupe for MAC 135 Brush.  Will be available online 10/22 and in-stores 10/27 at  Ulta Beauty but can also be found on Morphe.com
  • M500 – Deluxe Pointed Blender $9.00: I use this to set my face and under eyes but this brush can be used in multiple ways. I use to set my whole face with powder after liquid foundation. However after watching a MAC artist on you tube only set certain areas I knew I wanted a brush to do just that. I typically set my T Zone since it gets oily and my under eyes in the hopes that my concealer will not crease.  Another dupe for MAC 137 brush. Will be available online 10/22 and in-stores 10/27 at  Ulta Beauty but can also be found on Morphe.com

  • E 4 Angled Contour $14.00: Holy Grail blush brush. I know this says contour and you can use it for that and other powders (no rules) but I personally love this for blush. I saw many Influencers on You Tube using this and since I am a blush addict I had to try it and I loveeee it! This brush is not on the Ulta site as of right now but you can find it here on the brands site.

  • M439 Deluxe Buffer Brush $14.00: Jaclyn Hill made this foundation brush famous and I see where the hype is. It does not suck up my foundation. Instead it distributes the foundation evenly all over my face and the dense brushes create a flawless coverage. Will be available online 10/22 and in-stores 10/27 at  Ulta Beauty but can also be found on Morphe.com
  • M405 Contour Brush $8.00:  The angle on this brush allows for a really nice contoured cheek that is natural looking. You can use this for blush and highlighter too but I found it to work best as a contour brush. Find it here

I hope this posts helps you if you have been looking for some new base makeup brushes to try!  What are some of your most loved Makeup Brushes? I most certainly need to update my eyeshadow brushes so any suggestions is appreciated. You guys know I am not fancy with eye shadow but maybe good brushes it will be like magic lol

DUPE LIST: BPAMC Drugstore Dupes

For those of you that are new to Beauty Products Are My Cardio when I started my Instagram I ran a series called Splurge VS Steal. Who doesn’t love a good beauty steal right??!!?? Call it splurge vs steal, drugstore dupes or just good ole dupes, being able to save money on a product that works just as well (sometimes better) than an expensive one is a win in my book.

So I thought it would be fun to move this series over to my blog. Its now called DUPE List. I will dedicate blog posts that will consist of my finds in a list form so I can give you multiple dupes at once! (YAY!!!!!)  Below you will see my dupes from the last 9 months on Instagram along with some new ones. I hope you are just as excited about this new blog series as I am! I already have the 2nd one in the works so stay tuned! Lets get started!!!!

DUPE LIST:

Makeup Dupes - Becca Dupe - Becca Foundation Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation: $44

Loreal Cushion Foundation: $14.99

I found the coverage, luminous finish and longevity to be almost identical.

Makeup Dupes - Hoola Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Makeup Dupes - Hoola Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Benefit Hoola: $29.00

NYC Sunny Bronzer: $3.62

Hoola is a holy grail bronzer of mine so for me its worth the splurge however if you are on a budget and looking for a great matte bronzer you can not go wrong with Sunny Bronzer. The colors are a bit different so please keep that in mind.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC Blankety Dupe - Makeup Dupes

MAC Blankety $17.00

Loreal Fairest Nude: $5.99

Blankety is a more pink toned brown nude where I found fairest nude to come off a bit more brown. Loreal lipsticks are fabulous (except the smell/taste) so if you are looking for an everyday nude on a budget this is the shade to look into. This has also been said to be a dupe for MAC’s HoneyLove but I found it to be a bit closer to Blankety

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Revolution Shimmer Brick - Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick

Bobbi Brown: $46.00

Makeup Revolution: $7.00

Bobbi Brown is noticeably darker in color but the concept of a fun shimmer brick highlight to use in multiple ways is the same. Bobbi Brown offers a color range of the shimmer bricks and I have a few and love them however you can not go wrong at all with Makeup Revolution!

Makeup Dupes - Nars Multiple - Nars Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Nars Multiple Stick: $39.00

Wet N Wild all in one highlight stick: $3.99

I can not tell you how excited I was to discover this dupe. With the shades being almost identical to the formula being pretty darn good for $3.99. They are not any where as creamy as Nars but they are good for $3.99

Makeup Dupes - NYX Gotcha Covered - Tarte Concealer Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

These two concealers are so identical they have the same ingredients except for 2!!!  The NYX Gotcha covered concealer is AMAZING. Its one of my Ride or Die products (see my full list here)

Makeup Dupes - Makeup Revolution - Tarte Hella Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Makeup Revolution – The One For All: $5.00

Tarte: Hella: $20.00

Formula is different as the Tarte is not sticky and is very comfortable on the lips but color match is almost identical!

Makeup Dupes - Nail Polish Dupes - Just Nothing Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

All I can say is the Christian Louboutin polish chipped before the Wet N Wild one.

Makeup Dupes - Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Dupe - Eyeshadow Primer - Drugstore Dupes

Urban Decay Primer: $20.00

Wet N Wild Primer: $4.69

Read my blog post  here with swatches

Drugstore Dupes - Rockateur Dupe - Japonesque Blush Shade 2

Wet N Wild new formula blushes are amazing! Drugstore price with highend results. All three of these blushes are fabulous however Wet N Wild stepped up the game. You need them in your collection!

Drugstore Dupes - Covergirl Lash Blast - They're Real Dupe

All I can say here is Lashblast is my Holy Grail mascara and if Benefit’s Bad Gal Lash and They’re Real had a baby it would be Lash Blast.

Drugstore Dupes - IT Cosmetics Dupe - Milani Dupes

It Cosmetics Brow Power Lift Pencil: $24.00

Milani Brow & Eye Highlights: $6.99

The Milani comes in three different shades but this was the closest to the IT Cosmetics one that only comes in one shade. I prefer the shades to the IT Cosmetics for my skin tone however if you can find a Milani Brow & Eye Highlight that fits your skin tone its a fabulous product!

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - MAC Lady Danger Dupe

MAC lipsticks are by far my favorite lipsticks however Milani’s matte lipsticks are up there for me. They are just as comfortable, long wearing and do not have a funky smell or taste (big deal breaker for me with lipstick) Matte Passion is honestly the best dupe I have discovered because its almost identical.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC fix plus dupe - Elf Makeup Spray

MAC Fix + Spray: $23/12

Elf Makeup Spray: $3

The Elf one has a smell that is hard for me to get past. It provides hydration well and works but because of the smell I do not use that often.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC Pretty Please Dupe - Makeup Dupes

MAC Pretty Please: $17

Revlon Sky Line Pink: $4.99

I am bias with Pretty Please it was the shade I wore on my wedding day lol and its the perfect pink for me but in all honesty if you are looking for a pretty pink lipstick that shimmers and dont want to break the bank the Revlon one is going work!

Makeup Dupes - Drugstore Dupes - Dr Brandt Pores No More Dupe

Dr Brandt: $45.00

Catrice: $7.99

Both keep you matte, refine your pores and keep oil at bay. Dr. Brandt does have a nude color to the primer where the Catrice Primer is white

 

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - Clinique Chubby Stick Dupe

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - Clinique Chubby Stick Dupe

Clinique Chubby Stick: $17.00

Revlon Jumbo Gloss Balm: $8.99

Some of the shades are not an exact match as you can see but the idea behind this glossy tinted balm are the same. So if you can find a shade you love that is less expensive you cant go wrong with the Revlon Balm!
