For the past couple of months, I have been trying and reviewing Morphe products. In this post, I am reviewing a brush that I bought after a recommendation for a YouTube beauty guru. I adore her eye makeup and sometimes try to imitate her looks. She has a whole set of recommended brushes but buying them all together is expensive so I have been buying them as and when I find some petty cash. This brush comes highly recommended by her and rightly so. This brush is also Morphhe’s best-selling eye makeup brush.
One of the most popular Morphe brushes, this tapered crease brush has just the right amount of fullness and firmness to achieve perfect blending and seamless transitions between colors. A go-to crease brush is a staple in a well-rounded collection of eye brushes, and this brush is a great choice for makeup lovers at every skill level.

My Experience with Morphe M441 Pro Firm Blending Crease Brush:
This brush, as its name suggested, is meant for blending and has a round, fluffy end. It comes in the form of a long 7-inch stem in a matte black finish. The bristles are white in color and tightly held in a silver metal casing. The photo of Morphe products on the website is a bit misleading.
The colors of the eyeshadows are not accurate and brush shapes are a bit misleading. This brush, on the website, appears to have a dense appearance rather than a fluffy end. I prefer the latter and is perfect for blending a transition shade or a dark shade in the eye socket.
This brush has a high density of bristles which are tightly held by a metal case. The bristles are made up of goat hair; I prefer artificial material because natural bristles absorb more product because of pores in them, but this brush works well without any product wastage.
It is meant for blending a transition shade or a dark shade into the eye socket but I also use this brush to pick up loose or pressed powder eyeshadow and press it on my lids. It works the best if the eyelids are prepped with a primer or a cream eyeshadow underneath or else the loose powder falls all over the place and ruins the eye makeup underneath the eye.
It can also be used to pick glitter pigments and to pack on the lids but I guess this needs more skills than usual eyeshadow blending. This step can be done before the rest of the face makeup is done to prevent the base makeup from getting spoilt.
All the Morphe brushes are easy to clean. I use rubbing alcohol for spot cleaning or mild dish cleaning detergent for deep cleaning. This brush does not shed and does not feel cheaply made. Since the bristles are made of a natural material they lose their shape a little after a few washes but they still perform well.
