Morphe E4 Angled Blending Brush


When it comes to makeup brushes I feel like I am somewhat stuck in a rut. It is very rare that I spend money on makeup brushes, so some of mine look a little tatty and have seen better days to say the least. So, from this month on I am going to bin one brush a month and replace it with a nice shiny new one. So, this month I decided to treat myself to a new Morphe E4 brush. I had seen Jaclyn Hill using this brush on her YouTube channel for ages, then when she included it in her Morphe favourite video I knew that I needed to have it. She used it for blusher so naturally I had to use it for blush as well.

The first thing that I want to mention about this Morphe E4 brush is something that I know won’t make any odds to other people, but it is something that I am very happy about and that is the fact that it has a nice long handle which I think helps make the brush as good as it is. When brushes have a nice long and weighty handle it helps to give you more control of where the product is being applied and how heavy you are going in with the product. Also, the handle is a nice length if I am standing it up amongst the rest of my makeup brushes because I can see it clearly.

Next, I want to touch on just how soft the bristles of this brush are. Honestly, it is the softest brush that I have ever tried by Morphe. And, as you may have already seen here on my blog that I have tried a couple brushes in the last year and honestly, I can say that nothing has been as soft as what this E4 brush is. Even though the bristles are incredibly soft, I feel like they pick up just the right amount of product especially for a blusher and it allows you to lay down the product and blend it in until it looks perfect and flawless on the skin.

Now onto the actual shape of the brush. This is an angled brush and to be honest up until I saw Jaclyn using this brush, in my mind I had reserved angled brushes for only contouring and bronzing but oh how I was wrong. Because of the shape of this brush it just helps to defuse the product really nice and get a really natural and blended look. With the shape of the brush, it allows me to pop the product onto the apples of my cheeks and then using the outer bristles and by blending in circular motions, it allows me to get a very natural and diffused look. I really do think that this Morphe E4 is the most perfect brush for blusher.

Finally, I just want to mention about the overall look of this brush because it is just a pretty brush. It is really nice and sleek. To be honest it doesn’t really matter how a brush looks as long as they do the job that they are designed to do, but when they look nice it is just a bonus. I know that some people seem to have an issue with Morphe as a whole with them being somewhat of an ‘Instagram’ brand, but the things that I have tried from them have been absolutely perfect and I love reaching for them. None of them have ever failed me and if anything, they have just encouraged me to continue trying more of their range.

Overall, I just want to say that I cannot recommend this brush enough. It has worked really well with every single blusher that I have tried out. If you are looking for a new blush brush I really wouldn’t look any further than the Morphe E4. I got mine from Cocktail Cosmetics here in the UK and I am loving it. I will leave a link to this down below in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried any Morphe brushes and tell me what your favourite brush is for blusher!

  2. I love that you point out something that often is overlooked! The long and weighted handle really does make a difference and shows that the brand is taking as much into consideration as possible. Great review, I gotta check out the brush myself now! =]
