Up until 6 or 7 months ago, the only tools I used for applying
makeup were a blush brush that I have owned for over 10 years, a
compact sponge, and the Urban Decay Naked palette
If someone told me I needed more than that I laughed at them.
I had never had a problem putting on makeup just using those tools.
Let's just say, I didn't know what I was missing.
Earlier this year, I discovered Jaclyn Hill
She is awesome and has really turned my makeup game around
- aannnd she has ruined me.
Now I am constantly spending money on makeup - which is so much fun, and I
love the results I am getting, but damnnnn I am spending quite a bit of money.
Anyways, makeup is not the point of this post. "Makeup Tools" is the name of this game.
I have never heard someone rant and rave about makeup tools like JHill does on her channel.
So I decided maybe I should try using a few more tools, plus the brands (Morphe) she used weren't too expensive. I headed over to the Morphe site and bought a few
of her favorite brushes. I didn't think it would make much of a difference but I wanted to give it the "ole college try"!
My first purchase from Morphe:
And I spent less than $40, which is really saying something because if you go to Sephora,
you can really drop a dime fast on a few brushes.
I patiently waited (almost a month) for these brushes to come in the mail. Apparently the ones I ordered were not in stock, which is why it took longer.
When my "box o brushes" came I ripped it open and used every one right away!
The first thing I noticed was the quality of each brush. I was very surprised at how
soft and fluffy each of them were. This was surprising because
a few of these brushes I paid less than $5 for!
The next thing I noticed was what a difference using different types of brushes does.
My eye shadow has never looked so ON FLEEK!
I really am impressed:
1. With the quality of these brushes (that don't break the bank)
2. That using different brushes can really make a difference on
I am now a believer that tools do make a difference and I will definitely continue to buy from Morphe.
If you ever are in need of a few new brushes and are looking for quality that doesn't break the bank, you should check out Morphe!
