Morphe M536 Under Eye Bullet Brush Do I Need It?

I have my eye on the Morphe M536 Under Eye Bullet Brush ($8) at the moment and I’m currently questioning do I need it? I apply my Ben Nye Banana Powder with a small Bobbi Brown Blending Brush that came with one of her concealer kits that was featured on QVC several years ago. It’s like a smaller version of MAC’s 224 and it works perfectly. So, what led to my sudden interest in a larger brush? I keep seeing youTubers using larger brushes to set their concealer and it seems like the powder sheers out so much more naturally with a larger brush.

The M536 isn’t huge but it is larger than what I currently use. It has a rounded head and seems like it would fit under my eye area nicely to gently sweep powder on.

Anyone use this? I think I’m going to grab it! I mean for $8 I can’t really go wrong right? If it doesn’t work out, it doesn’t work out.

Hmmm!

What sort of setting brush do you use for your concealer?

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Me me me! I loved it so much I bought a 2nd. I use one for concealer and one for powder to et the concealer. I like it because it’s firm and packed, but it doesn’t tug at my skin and I like the shape as it lets me get into the tight corners. If you put concealer on AFTER your eye makeup, this is the brush for you. (and besides, you’re a junkie, you don’t NEED a reason to buy it, just buy it lol)

            Wanna bet? Your blog helped keep me sane during a very difficult time in my life (makeup is my escape)
            I will be forever grateful

    I use the Real Techniques setting brush which I think is also $8. It’s less tapered than this Morphe one. It has worked great so far, but if I need to replace I may check this one out!

    This is my holy grail I love this I have 2 one for under eye powder (Ben Nye Banana) & one for all over face powder (It Bye Bye pores) to apply concealer I use a micro beauty blender or a Sephora concealer brush I bought geez prob at least 7 years ago! I love the undereye bullet I went the day Morphe released the vault and was checking out all the brushes and gravitated to this one and haven’t used anything else since! For $8 it is 1000% worth it

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks Dawnn! def trying ;-D all these rave reviews convinced me πŸ˜€

    I got it on a whim to get free shipping, and I like it! Fits nicely under the eyes and is very soft. I think it would work well for highlighter too, but I haven’t tried it for that yet.

    • Isabella Muse

      I think I’m gonna grab it ;-D all these good reviews have me wanting it!

    Highlighting brushes and undereye setting brushes seem to have become interchangeable in my collection. Like you Muse I often use the RT setting brush for highlighter and my favorite undereye setting brush right now is the ELF Studio line highlighting brush! I do agree the fluffier brushes seem to disperse setting powder better under my dry and finely lined eyes.

    • Isabella Muse

      I really like eyeshadow blending brushes to do the concealer setting powder work that’s probably why I am so partial to the Bobbi brown one I have! But I agree! Highlighter brushes and undereye ones seem exactly the same shape/size!!!!!! ;-D

  • Felicia Burton

    I was curious about that one too. I also have the real techniques one but put the Morphe one in my cart a few days ago. Actually I put a bunch of brushes that I probably don’t need in my cart. Has anyone tried those newer sideways looking brushes yet? So curious.

  • Tracie

    Yes you need this and for $8, get it! I purchased this as soon as it came out on Ulta. I think I watched a Jaclyn Hill video where she used it and I was intrigued. Previously, I had been using KVD under eye setting brush, which works fine but this is so targeted and leaves my skin with such a great finish. I might grab another one for concealer application.

    • Isabella Muse

      sounds perfect! I did order it and can’t wait to try! πŸ˜€
