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

IT Cosmetics Best Sellers: Product Guide & Why you need to try them!

I had the pleasure recently to test out 5 of IT Cosmetics Best Sellers and I can say is there is a definite reason these are best sellers. I am not really sure what took me so long to try any of these products as I love their Ombre Bronzer and blush. I had heard  so many good things from family and friends and fellow bloggers on Instagram over and over so as soon as these arrived I put them to the test. In case you are new to IT Cosmetics they are sold at Ulta Beauty, which makes the brand accessible which I love!!! Here is a little background on the brand “IT Cosmetics™ works with plastic surgeons to develop clinically proven, innovative, problem-solving products that harness cutting-edge, anti-aging technologies and skin-loving ingredients to truly give you the power to be Your Most Beautiful You™.”

Product Guide & Breakdown

1. Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+: This CC Cream has a serious fan base, has an award winning formula, number 1 seller and after trying it I get it 100%!!!! This product has impressed me the most out of the 5. It literally covers everything including my redness which is hard to come by yet doesn’t feel like a foundation. It can be a little too matte for me some days but all I do is squeeze in my MAC Strobe Cream (see swatches here) and it gives the perfect dewy effect.  The best shade for me is Medium and in the winter if it seems to dark all I need to do is mix it in my moisturizer and it will lighten up a bit. This product also has an luminous option which I will be buying to try! If you are looking for an easy all in one product this is it! This delivers 7 products in 1, ummmm yes please!!!! 

  • Full-coverage foundation
  • SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad-spectrum physical sunscreen
  • Brightening color corrector
  • Hydrating anti-aging serum
  • Poreless finish primer
  • Dark spot concealer
  • Moisturizing day cream

2. Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer: If you have been following me for a while you know I prefer a dewy concealer that gives great coverage that does not look too thick or matte. This concealer covers the dark circles, gives the most dewy fresh look under your eyes and blends out beautifully.  The best shade for me is Medium and there are 7 shades available. Some skin benefits this concealer has to offer:

  • Anti-aging peptides
  • vitamins
  • antioxidants
  • hydrolyzed collagen
  • hyaluronic acid

3. Super Hero Elastic Strength Volumizing Mascara: One swipe and I was in shock. I normally do not spend money on high end mascara because there are too many fabulous options at the drugstore. However this mascara has given me faith again in High End Mascara. All I can say is they don’t call this a Super Hero for nothing!

4. Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil: I am not sure how these brands made shades that are Universal but its happening and I LOVE IT! Developed with surgeons it made to adhere to the skin and look like real hair. It literally melts into my brows for a natural look which you all know I prefer. Some Ingrediants in this product include:

  • saw palmetto
  • green tea
  • vitamins A, C, E,
  • grapeseed

5. Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro Powder: Powders are not our friend as we age (insert dewy makeup here lol). This powder however was specifically designed for aging women who want to set their makeup. Per the Ulta Website ” delivers a face-perfecting airbrush effect. It absorbs oil and shine, and blurs away the look of pores, without settling into lines and wrinkles. It sets makeup and helps to diffuse the appearance of wrinkles and pores instantly” I will say it does what it claims. I prefer the loose powder over the pressed powder as I feel it just works better with my skin and shows better results for me.

I know we have dicussed the 5 IT Cosmetics Best Sellers but there are two I need to add in here. The Ombre Bronzer and Blushes are just stunning and some of my favs in my personal makeup collection.IT Cosmetics Best Sellers

CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush: This blush for obvious reasons is stunning to look at but it gives a natural flush of color and glow! It is available in 3 shades and guaranteed to finish off any of your looks beautifully! Shade shown is Sugar Plum.

CC+ Radiance Ombre Bronzer: I do not even know where to begin with this bronzer other than you need it! It has a glowy side and a matte side so you can pick and choose or swirl your brush around to get all the goodness this bronzer has to offer, which is what I do. It gives you the most perfedt warm glow for your face and body. I always bronze up my skin especially when I am going out at night or to an event. I take a huge powder brush and go to town and this bronzer has been a staple in my routine for 3 years now.
