Review: This is one of those "Instagram Made Me Buy It" purchases. Many of you know I started using Morphe Brushes exclusively in the spring of 2016 (with the exception of a few high-end brushes that I own such as Nars, Marc Jacobs, etc). E.L.F released their Beautifully Precise Brush line (the one with the clear handles and white/grayish bristles) and brought a few pieces into my Morphe-dominated tools. After seeing this brush set on Instagram, I felt it was time to bring back variety again. The metallic handles reminded me of Morphe's Limited Edition Metal Brushes (without the encrusted crystals and the $99 price tag). So I went to the MODA website (they are owned and made my Royal & Langnickel company) and proceeded to build my six-kit brush.
I chose the Large Powder, Blush and Highlight & Glow for my three face brushes option and went with the Domed Eyeshadow, Super Crease and Crease brushes for my small brushes. The brushes came in silver and gold metallic handles with a black and white top bristles. Honestly, I was skeptical about the quality of these brushes due to its extremely affordable price. I expected them to be flimsy and less dense but that was not the case. The bristles are soft, dense and fluffy. They pick up powder products easily. They apply powder products on the face nicely and evenly - with a natural finish. The eye brushes are also amazing - they pick up eyeshadows nicely and blends powders seamlessly. I wash my makeup brushes prior to using them for the first time and there were no shedding on the bristles whatsoever. The handles are also sturdy even if they do not feel as heavy as most metallic handles I have used before.
I recently down-sized my regularly used makeup brushes (the others were stored away, including some high-end and Morphe brand) and these Moda brushes made it my every day staple which is stored on my vanity (this is not my current makeup brush holder since I have down-sized since this photo was taken).
Would I Repurchase? Yes. If not for myself, definitely as gift.
