Charlotte Tilbury Powder & Sculpt Brush vs Morphe E48 Tapered Brush



I wanted to do a comparison on these two brushes because it wasn’t until I got the Morphe E48 brush that I realised how similar it was to the Charlotte Tilbury Powder and Sculpt brush. And with such a massive difference in the price of these two brushes I thought that it would be worth doing a comparison post on!

I bought the Charlotte Tilbury Powder & Sculpt brush to contour my cheekbones, I have seen her use this brush in her YouTube videos and it looks so nice for “following the hollow”, as Charlotte says. I bought the Morphe E48 for setting my under eyes. I think I saw this in Jaclyn Hill’s Morphe favourites video and it just looked so perfect.

It wasn’t until I got the Morphe brush through the post that it seemed more or less the same as the CT brush, and if there is a bargain to be had I want to have it, so I will delve into which one of these brushes is worth the money in my eyes.

There are quite a lot of similarities in these brushes so I will just jump into them. First is the shape of the bristles. Both are tapered on the end so they are great for applying product and then using the outer bristles to blend the product in.




Another similarity is how the brushes look. They both have nice long handles, which on one hand isn’t great for travelling with or putting in your daily makeup bag but they offer you a great amount of control for when you are applying your makeup.

I have been using and washing these brushes for a couple of months now and I have noticed that both of them come out really nicely after I wash them. I wash them both in the same way, with my normal brush cleanser and I dry them in the same way and they seem to both come out more or less as good as new.

Now for the differences. The biggest difference in these two products is the price. For the Morphe E48 I paid £11, which is really reasonable for the quality of the brush and how well it has been holding up. The Charlotte Tilbury Powder and Sculpt brush was £35 and I bought it direct through her website. I don’t mind paying this much for a brush, if the quality is there to hold up that price.

Another difference I would say is in the feel of the bristles. I used one of these brushes to contour one side of my face and the other brush to contour the opposite side and I have to say that I did notice a big difference in the softness of the bristles. The Charlotte Tilbury literally felt like silk across my face, but the Morphe E48 did at times feel quite spikey and uncomfortable. I did find through that with the Morphe E48 that once I got some powder built up in the brush it did feel softer.



To break it down between these two brushes as much as I do love the Morphe E48, I would go for the Charlotte Tilbury Powder & Sculpt brush. But you just have to remember that there is a massive price difference so you would expect this brush to be much better. I am still going to carry on using the Morphe brush because it is still a decent brush and for the price you cannot go wrong. These are just two examples of similar brushes in different price brackets that are both really good in their range.

As normal here on my blog I will link below to where you can pick up both of these items. Please feel free to leave me any comments that you have down below and I will get right back to you!

  1. I could really do with a new brush for contouring, so these both look great! Personally I'm not sure I could hand over £30+ for a brush (ouch!) so might pick up the Morphe one until my birthday rolls round :)

  3. I've wanted to get the CT brush for so long, but I always wonder if it's worth the hype. Nice to know it's soft and that it's holding up well x

  4. Really interesting comparison, so funny that you bought both for different reasons but I guess it shows that they're both pretty versatile? I think I'd probably save the money but maybe if I liked the shape that much I'd eventually invest in the CT!

  7. That charlotte Tilbury brush does look so good, though i usually stick to affordable makeup brushes. I've discovered so many that work amazing and yet they are so affordable so i don't find myself tempted to go high end with brushes since the ones i have do a great job. x
