As highlighting has become a huge rage now, we all need the right tool in hand to do it right. I have already reviewed the Coastal Scents Fan brush for highlighting which was a huge dud. So, I continued my search to get the right brush and found this beauty from Morphe which does wonder for highlighting. Read on to know more on this amazing brush.
Perfect highlighting has never been easier than with this brush. The tapered natural bristles give you precise application with just enough fluff for diffused color and flawless blending.

Bristles: 1 1/8″

My Experience with Morphe M501 Pro Pointed Blender Brush:
Morphe brushes are creating a lot of buzz in the makeup world for the quality they offer at affordable prices where brands like Sigma and MAC brushes are so highly priced. I have bought a few brushes from Morphe and have loved their performance so far. I have ordered for more brushes and palette from Morphe – just waiting for my package now 😛
The brush has a sleek black handle with length that’s almost same as Sigma brushes. The brush is sturdy and easy to hold. The brush bristles are made up of sable hair which feels very soft on skin. The bristles are tapered in shape with long and short bristles. It picks the right amount of product. I feel since the brush is long and lightweight, you don’t have to apply pressure during highlighting hence it gives a beautiful finish. To make your highlighter pop, you can build the product slowly. The bristles blend the product well and do not give streaky application.
I own three different highlighters and this brush works well with all the highlighters. I highlight my cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and the bridge of my nose, eyebrow arc, chin and center of my forehead and this brush fits well on all the areas that I specified above because of the shape of the bristles. It gives an even application of highlighter which is really very good and it has flexible bristles, so it is very easy to blend the product.
I have washed this brush many times and there is no bleeding or shedding of bristles. And after drying, it retains its original shape. Overall, this is brush is like a magic wand for highlighter., love it to bits!
