I got my MorpheMe March brushes last week and some of them looked sorta familiar. I rummaged through my brush collection and tried to spot the closest looking ones. Then I put them to the test to see if they were dupes and here’s what I came up with.
Morphe M401 – $14
This large pointed powder brush is perfect for baking under the eyes as well as sweeping away the bakage without disturbing the lower layers. It’s fluffy enough to apply blush to the cheeks as well as a tapered tip for contouring. The tulip shaped brush is made from sable hairs and doesn’t shed much when washed. I find it’s much softer than the MAC 138 ($53) and does an excellent job.
Morphe M521 – $6
The chisel oval shadow brush is meant to give you a sharp, defined crease. While it looks very similar to the MAC 217 ($25) which I use for blending harsh edges, the longer ferrule and longer bristles make creating an outer v such a breeze.
Morphe M436 – $7
The closest brush I could find in my collection to this mini duo blender is the SwiitchBeauty F80 ($8). They perform exactly the same except the Morphe one is slighter softer on the skin.
Morphe M412 – $6
I don’t have a deluxe pointed blender brush like this one. I found the Revlon Contour Shadow ($15) claims to do the same but the precise tip of the Morphe M412 is like no other. The pointed tip takes the fear out of adding dark crease shades to escalate any makeup look.
The total value of the MorpheMe March brush subscription was $33. That is so worth it considering the MAC 138 alone cost much more than that. I’m really happy with the brushes I received but I think I’ll least be using the M436 duo fibre one.
