Who doesn’t love a good makeup brush right? With the ELF Brush Set your face is literally all set! I have been an avid fan of ELF brushes for some time now. I recently did a blog post on my must have drugstore brushes (find it HERE) and ELF was of course featured. In recent months ELF launched a whole bunch of new goodies and this Ultimate Brush set was one of the new releases. It comes with 18 brushes with roll for $55. That comes out to roughly $3 a brush and I think that is a beauty win considering some brushes in this set individually are priced between $4-$6.
One of the brushes that is included in this set is the Flawless Face Brush and I am obsessed with it. I have the original one in black and it retails for $6.00. I use it for my MAC Studio Fix Powder foundation and it packs the product on beautifully!! Another fav of mine that is included in this set is the Flawless Concealer Brush. Its $3 and works. Its not too big or small and its gentle. The brushes are Vegan-friendly and can be used either wet or dry products. Also with this set is the metallic, also vegan leather brush roll which is perfect for travel and a space saver!

” You don’t blend in, but your makeup can – leave them stunned with the Real Techniques Blend + Blur Brushes”
Real Techniques brushes are a staple in my beauty tool collection. Not only are they affordable but they perform well and get the job done! Real Techniques just released 5 new brushes to the family and they mimic the Artis Makeup brushes however these are less than half the price. I love beauty investments but when you can get a product that is more affordable that works its a win! These brushes are densely packed with oval heads for maximum blending and precision application. Per the Ulta Website they are long lasting, easy to clean and its unique curved design to easily fit in your hand.

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.
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

When it comes to Makeup Brushes you do not need to spend a ton of money for results. There are soooo many fabulous options at the Drugstore and for this post I want to talk about my 5 must have drugstore brushes! Not only are these affordable drugstore brushes but also all under $10 and can be found at Ulta Beauty & Target!
Elf Cosmetics Flawless Face Brush – $6.00: This brush is absolutely perfect for powder foundation. If you have been following me for a while you know I am a huge MAC Studio Fix Powder fan. Because the brush is a bit more dense it packs on so much product. Its so soft and is not too big either. The size is actually another great feature. Its compact enough to fit in a smaller makeup bag. Some days when I am doing my makeup on the train I will use it for my powder foundation, bronzer and then blush.
Real Techniques Expert Concealer Brush – $6.99: New to my collection but only after a few uses I am in love. This brush actually gave me this idea for this Drugstore Brushes post lol! This blends out concealer without streaks and the bristles are nice and soft which is important for such a delicate area of the face. When it comes to pot concealers using a brush makes them so much easier but I have been using this for all of mine.
Real Techniques Powder Brush – $9.99: When it comes to setting your whole face this brush will be your best friend. I do not always set my whole face but when I do this is the only brush I reach for. The size and shape allow product to sweep over the entire face effortlessly. I have also used this for powder foundation but found the Elf Face Brush to work better. However this can be a multi – tasker in your collection!
Real Techniques Blush Brush – $8.99: Blush is my fav and when you have the right tools it is even better. With the shape you can get product perfect on the apple of your cheeks or can even use this as a bronzing brush to carve out your cheek bones. Another multi – tasker but I prefer this as a blush brush!
Elf Cosmetics Small Stipple Brush – $3.00: The cheapest on this list yet can do so much! I have used this for liquid foundation, cream blush, cream bronzer and cream contour. This brush is fool proof and a must have!
