I own a pretty large amount of Morphe brushes which I’ve purchased as part of brush sets, as well as individually and I’ve always been so impressed by the quality. The brushes have definitely improved in the last two years or so, since Morphe rebranded their whole product range and I just like how affordable their brushes are. Zoeva are my favourite brush brand but their prices have really shot up in the last couple of years, whereas I feel like Morphe have been pretty consistent with their pricing. Whenever I place an order on Cult Beauty, I tend to purchase one or two more Morphe brushes to add to my collection and my newest addition is the Morphe E18 Round Crease Makeup Brush which was just £6.
“This shorter, bullet tipped crease brush will give you a stronger, more defined crease color and is an excellent tool for cut crease looks. Also great for stamping color into the outer third of the eye.”
Full Length: 6 7/8″
Bristle Type: Synthetic
The Morphe ‘E’ range belong to the Elite Series which are said to be a premium collection of synthetic brushes that are precision perfection. There are a total of 45 different brushes within the Elite Series for the face, eyes and cheeks, and priced between £4.50 to £23.
I chose the Morphe E18 Round Crease brush as although I have many different blending brushes and pencil brushes, I really liked the idea of a slightly fluffier version of a pencil brush for the placement and blending of shadow within the crease.
All of the Elite brushes have dark coloured bristles which complement the dark gunmetal colour of the ferrules within the range, with a subtle red tint to the end of the bristles. They really do look super sleek, and the bristles of this particular brush really do feel as if they’re natural fibers but they’re completely synthetic. I’m not the biggest fan of pencil brushes as a whole as I find them to be a little scratchy and firm for being so close to the eyes.
I love the Morphe M432 brush for blending colour along the lashlines, but the E18 looked like the perfect brush for precise placement and blending of shadow. I like to use a very dark brown or black in my outer crease to add depth, but it’s so easy to go overboard and end up looking like a smokey eye look.
This brush is very small, and rounded so it gives you a nice amount of precision on where you place the colour but it blends seamlessly too. It also works well at applying an inner corner highlight or the placement of pigments or glitter, and is a great addition to my makeup brush collection.
Have you tried any of the Morphe Makeup Brushes before?
