Finally got around to reviewing this set of brushes I got from Morphe. The Elite Collection is suppose to be the most expensive line out of all their brushes, but also of the best quality. It really reminds me of the Sephora Pro Brushes that costs S$30-70+ each. As for the Elites, the most expensive huge ass face brushes should cost around US$22.99. The rest usually range around US$5-7 for eye brushes and US$16ish for other medium size face brushes. By the way, these are available on Beauty Bay, which is a nice website that offers free shipping to Singapore on orders over S$30.

So here's all my Elite brushes. I still own a few other Morphe brushes from their Gunmetal and Flawless lines. I will do a separate post on those brushes and maybe do a round up of my favourite Top 10 Morphe brushes.

You can tell that these brushes are extremely dense. The hairs are super soft and not scratchy at all. All the brushes in this line has synthetic bristles. The handles also feel more weighted and extra fancy.

Let's start off with some eye brushes. I did not pick up any shadow packing brush as I have quite a few that I currently enjoy from Sigma and Zoeva.

E22 Pointed Blender $6.99 - Pointed tip brush for a more precise application, especially while building up colours for a smokey eye.







The Zoeva 231 Petit Crease is smaller and more dense.






E23 Deluxe Blender $6.99
 - Very similar to E27, probably do not need both of these. A size smaller than E27. If you have smaller eyes are small lid space, then probably this will be a better option.




Morphe E27 is more fluffy. Sigma E40 is more fluffy like E40. Wet n Wild Crease Brush has a similar shape but is less dense and has more give then E23.



E27 Pro Round Blender $6.99
 - Fluffy blending brush for the crease and is a dupe for the
Sigma E40. It deposits a nice amount of product on the crease and blends shadow out very nicely.





E43 Flat Brow $4.99
 - This is great for targeting the lower lash line as it is very thin. I much prefer the Zoeva 322 Brow Line for my brows. It is very similar to this brush, just a slanted version.










E2 Round Powder $19.99
 - Huge ass powder brush. Reminds me a lot of the Real Techniques Powder Brush - which is a bit scratchy; Morphe one is so much softer. I rarely reach for this as it is too big but I do use it occasionally to set my foundation on the cheeks when the foundation I use is too tacky, before going in with bronzing and blushers.







E3 Precision Pointed Powder $16.99
 - Practically does the same thing as E53, just a smaller version. I use this with powder for setting around my face. A great multi-tasker brush - can able be used for blush and bronzer.





E4 Angled Contour $13.99 - I love this for blush and bought this off the recommendation of Jaclyn Hill. I used to hate this type of brush for blush but recently this is all I reach for. Sigma has a super similar brush in both natural goat hair and synthetic hair - F40.










E6 Premium Flat Buffer $14.99
 - Kabuki style brush for buffing in liquid foundation. The size is just perfect. I usually prefer my Beauty Blender for most foundations but for more watery foundations or tinted moisturizer, I prefer a dense brush like this. I love this with my MUFE Face and Body Foundation and Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. They have a bigger version of this called the E31 Deluxe Flat Buffer $19.99.





Sigma F80 and Zoeva 104 Buffer are very similar; almost identical as they are more dense. While the Makeup Geek Foundation Stippling, Wet n Wild Flat Top and BH Cosmetics 123 Flat Top Buffing are softer and tend to absorb more product, giving a slightly more sheer application than the rest.



E8 Detail Contour $5.99
 - This definitely can be used for precision contouring. But I actually bought this for blending out of concealer. It works really great that way.







A great dupe for this is the Elf Flawless Concealer Brush. Although it is smaller in size but it does the same job and blends out concealer very nicely.






E34 Tapered Blush $16.99
 - I remember seeing somewhere that this is good for blush. But I feel that it's way too dense and picks up too much product. It can move the foundation underneath so I rarely reach for this brush. I think it will work better with cream blushes and contours though.





E48 Mini Pointed Powder $9.99 - Round tapered brush great for setting the under eyes or blending out concealer. Very similar to Sigma F35.










E49 Flat Pointed Powder $9.99 - Basically a flat version of E48 and does pretty much the same thing. I switch these two around. It can also be used for highlighting.








E53 Pro Pointed Powder $14.99 - Tapered powder blush. This can be used to set the face and also as blush or a light dust of bronzer. Another multi-tasker brush like the E3.






Out of all the Morphe Brushes, I really recommend the Elite Collection the most. However, I did watch a video on YouTube on Morphe Brushes and it was mentioned that they private label their brushes and palettes, and basically most those products are the same thing as Crown Brushes. Crown is cheaper than Morphe. But I don't think they have a collection like the Elite line. So I still do recommend checking these brushes out. I personally have never tried Crown's products so I can't give a proper comparison on how similar the products are.

Overall, I do highly recommend getting a few staple brushes from the Elite line. I love them so much. Alternatively, Zoeva Brushes are amazing too! These two brands are basically all I reach for nowadays. I will be doing a review on the new Zoeva Rose Golden Vol. 3 Brush Set very soon. Keep your eyes peeled for that. And I have done other reviews on Zoeva brushes/sets here.
