After several months of using the Morphe Eye Slay Brush Set I wanted to share my full review of it. I’ve been using most of these brushes daily since I posted my Morphe Eye Slay Brush Set Haul. I use them in every YouTube video I upload and some of these brushes have become staples in my routine. On the other hand… some of them have not.
Morphe Eye Slay Brush Set Review
The Eye Slay Brush Set by Morphe retails for $24CAD and contains 6 synthetic and natural hair eyeshadow brushes to help you achieve your eyeshadow goals. The set unfortunately doesn’t say which brushes are synthetic and which ones aren’t, nor do any of these brushes exist for individual purchase at Morphe. The set also comes with a little rose gold bag for carrying the brushes.
The Eye Slay Brush Set Includes:
- Bent Liner Brush: For applying cream of gel eyeliner.
- Pencil Crease Brush: To smudge eyeshadow and precisely apply eyeshadow.
- Flat Concealer Brush: For applying concealer.
- Oval Shadow Brush: For packing on eyeshadow.
- Crease Fluff Brush: Great for applying your first transition shade
- Deluxe Blender Brush: A super soft fluffy blending brush.
- Luxe Case
These brushes are so instagramable! I love that they are Rose gold, that’s what initially drew me to them. I love that these brushes are full sized too, I don’t mind mini brushes but it’s nice to have a full brush set finally. There is also a Morphe Complexion Goals brush set which is the matching rose gold face brush set. I don’t have that one as I don’t need any more face brushes, but it is available for you.
I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked the brush case. It’s long and fits my makeup brushes when I travel and when I’m not jet-setting I use it to hold my daily makeup staples like brow pencils, an eyelash curler, mascara and a blending sponge. The rose gold aesthetic is really pretty!
Bent Liner Brush
This eyeliner brush is actually really good. I love that this brush is bent, it makes it much easier to apply my Pretty Vulgar Gel liner. The brush is small but firmly packed which helps creating precise lines. I still haven’t mastered winged gel liner with this brush, but honestly I’m not good at winged liner regardless of the brush I use!
Pencil Crease Brush
This pencil crease brush is really scratchy. This is one of the natural hair brushes as far as I can tell and it’s really coarse. I don’t use it much because of that, I wouldn’t use it to smudge because it’s not very gentle on the eyes.
Flat Concealer Brush
I didn’t actually know that this was supposed to be a concealer brush until I checked the website a few days ago. I will probably keep using it to apply eyeshadow to my lower lash line. It probably won’t be getting used as a concealer brush anytime soon, except to maybe clean up my winged liner. The square shape isn’t my idea of a good cut crease brush, I prefer oval shaped brushes! Speaking of Oval shaped brushes…
Oval Shadow Brushes
I love this shadow brush! It’s big and densely packed so I always reach for it when I’m setting my eye primer or packing on a matte shade all over my lid. This brush is pretty good, I’m happy it’s in the set!
Crease Fluff Brush
This is the brush that I almost always use to apply my first transition shade. It’s a tiny bit scratchy so I would have liked something softer but it does a good job of evenly dispersing my transition shades into the crease. Unfortunately it’s bulky for my eye shape so I go in with a different brush once I’ve applied that first transition shade.
Deluxe Blender Brush
This is such a great brush! It’s suuuper soft unlike the natural hair brushes in this collection. It does a great job of diffusing the edges of my eyeshadow. If one brush in this set was available for purchase I would want it to be this one.
Is It Worth It?
I like the Morphe Eye Slay Brush Set but now that I’ve used the brushes for a while I don’t know that I needed all of them. It’s a great set if you have little to no makeup brushes of your own. I use the Crease Fluff Brush and the Deluxe Blender brush all the time so I’m happy to have them in my collection.
What I’m really loving though is my Morphe M506, which is a brush that I also got in my Morphe Haul. That brush is amazing for hooded eyes like mine, it’s soft and tapered so it gets right into your crease. I would recommend hand selecting the brushes you need from Morphe’s individual brush selection if you already have a large collection instead of choosing a set like the Eye Slay Brush set. That being said this set was only $24CAD (~$18USD) which as far as makeup brushes go is pretty affordable. If you want the instagramable aesthetic than go for it. These makeup brushes definitely enhance my flatlays!
