Live Glam MorpheMe July 2018 Brush Subscription Review

img_7437-e1532724086461.jpg

MorpheMe is a brush subscription through Live Glam. They send out 3-8 Morphe brushes monthly for $19.99 per month and you can choose to have your subscription renewed monthly, every 6 months or annually. There is free shipping if you live in the US and Worldwide shipping is $4.99. The value of the brushes always exceeds the monthly subscription price and they are good quality brushes. This subscription is an inexpensive way to build your brush kit or personal stash if you aren’t an MUA. They have a rewards program where you earn 100 points each month you are an active member as well as 50 bonus points on your birthday if you include your birth date on your profile. You can also earn rewards points by reviewing each month’s brushes individually and as a whole. A referral link is given to every subscriber after signing up that can be used to gain extra points when people use it. Points can be used to redeem prizes like Lime Crime hair tint, Morphe brushes, foundation from PUR Cosmetics, and even cash through PayPal. If you are a monthly member you can trade your next shipment for different brushes if you don’t like the monthly brushes or skip a month.

Liveglam always includes an insert that tells you about the theme and individual brushes they chose for that month. July’s theme was resting beach face which I believe is a nautical take on the common pose used for selfies know as “resting b***h face”.

They also included an insert announcing the start of their new eyeshadow palette subscription ShadowMe.

Morphe M492 Duo Foundation Brush

Starting off is the Morphe M492 which is a duo fiber foundation brush made with synthetic and sable bristles. The recommended use for this brush is stippling in your foundation. I have also used a duo fiber brush to apply a light wash of blush or bronzer since they usually only pick up a small amount of product at a time. Highly pigmented blushes and bronzers work especially well with this technique.

Retail value: $8.00

Bristle length: 1 1/4″

Full brush length: 7 3/8″

Morphe M166 Oval Shadow Brush

Next brush is the M166 which is a oval shadow brush made with sable bristles. These types of brushes work great for packing shadow onto the lid. It can also be used to create a cut crease but I prefer using a small oval shadow brush like the M124 or G15 since they are smaller and give me better control of where the concealer goes.

Retail value: $4.00

Bristle length: 1/2″

Full brush length: 6 1/2″

Morphe M579 Pro Flat Contour Brush

The M579 is a flat contour brush with goat hair bristles. This brush should be used with powder products and works great for creating a strong contour or for stamping on powder to clean up your contour.

Retail value: $12.00

Bristle length: 1/2″

Full brush length: 6 3/8″

Morphe M536 Under Eye Bullet

Lastly is the M536 which was actually created for a beauty YouTuber named Laura Lee and is made with synthetic bristles. It was designed for blending out under eye concealer. I’ve seen Laura Lee use this brush in her videos and it looks like it does a good job at blending out concealer. I’m also curious on how well it performs in setting the under eyes with powder as well.

Retail value: $8.00

Bristle length: 1 1/4″

Full brush length: 7″

The total value of these brushes is $32.00 for a savings of $12.01 if you were to buy all of these brushes separately.

Next post will be my review on the July 2018 Boxycharm box so stay tuned!
