How to Use
Rated 3.53 out of 5 stars
I decided to write this review because of the unfair ratings this brush has received. I this this brush is awesome and I particularly use it for bronzing the skin BUT, before you buy this brush, you have to understand that the bristles are GOAT HAIR. This means this brush WON'T FEEL AS SOFT, but it WILL pick up more product and blend it BEAUTIFULLY and MORE EVENLY into the skin, which is why I reach for this brush so often! The only time I find it shedding is when I use too much pressure.Overall, it's a great brush and it actually gets better the more you use and wash it!
Ok. To start, any other moms out there remember when your baby was a certain age and all of your gloriously thick pregnancy hair decided to fall out over the course of a week or two? Remember that panic, calling your mom, doctor, friend, internet, because you were sure you were going bald? Yeah, that's what this brush reminded me of. I have several Morphe goat hair eyeshadow brushes and they shed a tiny bit here and there but nothing like this. I wanted to like this brush, I really did. I babied it, I washed it several times (gently) and reshaped it and it still sheds like, hand to god, 35 hairs every time I try to use it on my face. Then, I have to fix my make up because of all the marks it leaves on my fresh makeup trying to pick off these random hairs. I really did give this the best shot possible, I tried it over the course of months and the shedding... it never stops.
Maybe I got a bad one, maybe some of them don't shed this bad, but this brush just didn't wow me enough in any way to give it another shot. It floofed out too much when I tried to use it to push in setting powder or to buff in a finishing powder... it's just not a great brush.

I bought this about a week ago and regret it. This brush sheds like crazy. I washed it for the first time and it already looks frayed. I have other Morphe brushes with these bristles and they're all the same. Stick to the bristles that are black and white. I wish the other bristles had a brush this shape.

I know Morphe gets a bad rep sometimes. But personally for me this brush is amazing! Every time I try and switch I always go back to the M527. Washes fine for me and doesn't shed!! Just ordered another one :)
Mia from Fairbanks
While cleaning the brush I got a strong smell of something similar to a dead animal. Do not buy this brush unless you are going to use it once then throw it out without wetting it. (Unrealistic)

Do not buy this brush! This is the worst makeup brush I've ever had. Wish it wasn't too late to return. Will shed excessively every time you use it. I literally have to comb it to make it stop shedding. So cheap

This brush has a really nice shape. I like that it's not super dense so it's good for just a soft application of a bronzer or something. That being said, OH MY LORD IT SHEDS SO BAD. Literally I'm shocked this thing even has any brush hairs left. It's hard to use it because it leave brush hairs on my face.

This brush works great for contouring.
Disappointed from Durham NC
This came with the James Charles brush collection and many of the white bristle brushes in the collection are very rough as well...This was the worst purchase I have ever made.

In love with this brush! I've only used a hand full of times and have yet to clean it so I have not seen the strands falling out as some people report. I'd buy it again even if it started falling apart.

Gives a perfect sculpted glow look, blends beautifully, & no fallout! One of my fav brushes ❤️

I use this as a contour brush with bronzer and it really gives you that sculpt look!

I purchased this brush from my local ULTA store, and I must say the Morphe display is horrendous. All of the brushes are in the wrong slots and a lot of them are just shoved back into the display so it was really hard to find the brush I wanted and also find one that wasn't wrecked. Originally this is not the brush I came in for but it is the brush I left with and I'm quite happy!
Yan from San Sebastian, PR
Is not that is a bad brush, is just that when I received it, I tested it by pulling out a little the bristles and some came out. I haven't wash it out yet and I am little worried when I do... Anyway, it is extremely soft, so is a little difficult to apply bronzer, at least for me, which is the reason I purchased it. I use it to apply powder all over the face for it softness.
Ally from Jax FL
I love the fact that this brush is so fluffy but omg it sheds terribly!!! Like, I've washed, conditioned, handled it with care, but it leaves so many hairs all over my face every time. So sad!
HR from Kzoo
This brush put the right amount of bronzer on and its easy to clean
Flower from Remo, Sriracha
I actually really like this brush. It definitely blends everything out nicely. The only reason I gave it four stars is bc it smelled like pure chemicals. Yes of course I washed it throughly before using it but even after that wash it still smelled a lot like chemicals to me. I had to wash it multiple times to get the smell out.

I was so excited about how fluffy and soft this brush was at first, but it sheds WAY too much for me to continue use. I have been using it for 4 months, cleaning it regularly and irregularly to see if that would help, but it continued. I purchased a replacement from RT today, and will be throwing the Morphe away.
Kali from north dakota
I think this brush applies bronzer very nicely, it can be scratchy at times but my only real issue is that it sheds more than it should ever shed. Bronzing my skin i end up with little white hairs all over my face, my legs, my makeup desk, everywhere. very annoying! one of my good friends recommended it but she never said anything about it shedding so maybe its just a bad one?
Harley gal from Strongsville Ohio
I love this brush! It's so soft and applies my blush so evenly. I no longer have a Big Blob of blush on my cheeks.

Fluffy and blends well. Sometimes it gets rough and scratchy but then I condition it and wash with moisturizing shampoo and it's soft again. Sheds but for me it's not so bad.
Flores from UT
So fluffy allows one to blend so easily and distributes product beautifully
