Hey ya’ll! It’s been quite some time since I’ve written last, but that’s because yours truly has been truly grinding it out this semester! I’ve volunteered to do several things in order to keep myself busy, and as a result, I have not carved out time to write, do my makeup, or anything other than work out, do homework, and sleep! (I’ll be sure to fill ya’ll in on said activities in a later post!)

After lunch this afternoon, I had a short conversation about makeup with one of my girlfriends. I recently purchased a larger magnetic eyeshadow palette and was giving my smaller one to my roommate who is in the process of adding to her makeup collection. My girlfriend asked me, “How do you have so much money to spend on makeup? I’m struggling!” After finally convincing her that I struggle too, I told her that I don’t spend much money on makeup and/or my tools at all! I do not consider myself to be a MUA (makeup artist), but I can say my collection is pretty extensive. Ultimately, despite my most recent accomplishments I am still a struggling college student, I still ask my mom for money on a (somewhat) monthly basis, and my favorite flavor of Ramen is chicken.

One of the recent ways that I’ve opted to increase my collection of tools is through my subscription to LiveGlam! LiveGlam sends you an assortment of makeup brushes, liquid lipsticks or nail polishes for only $19.99 a month! (Shipping is FREE within the United States and International shipping is $4.99 a month.) Out of all of the subscriptions they offer, the obvious choice for me was makeup brushes because I have several liquid lipsticks from NYX and I am not at a place where I can get my nails done on a regular basis. To add icing on the cake, the brushes are from none other than Morphe! I am a huge fan of a number of Morphe products ranging from their makeup brushes, to their eyeshadow palettes, right down to their pigments and liquid lippies! Receiving 3-8 Morphe brushes for only $20 a month with shipping included is definitely a move in the right direction for a beauty enthusiast with a budget on a tight leash!

I will admit, I was a bit skeptical at first but my doubts soon dissipated after I received my first package! The first set of brushes I received retailed for a total of $32. They consisted of a pointed powder brush (ideal for blending out blushes and bronzers), a round contour brush (ideal for bronzers and highlighters), and a tapered blending brush (ideal for packing on eyeshadow or defining the crease). While I’m in possession of several eyeshadow brushes, I had yet to purchase brushes ideal for contour and bronzers. I hit the jackpot! Again, for only $19.99 (plus free shipping), I received $32 worth of brushes to add to my arsenal! It doesn’t get much better than that!

I don’t use the brushes ideal for bronzing and contouring (because I don’t bronze or contour extensively), but I am so happy I have them for when I do start!

Last month, I received my September shipment of brushes. This time I received a total of 4 brushes retailing for $31. I won’t go into huge detail about these brushes because most of them are for eyes, but I can assure you that they are nothing short of amazing! I stan for BeautyBlender but after using the Morphe E6 brush in lieu of my sponge for my foundation, I may never go back!


Last but not least, here’s a sneak peek at the brushes I will be receiving October 1 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!


Before choosing to subscribe, here are some FAQs LiveGlam answers on their site!

Q: Which brushes will I receive each month?

A: “The brushes included in each month’s package are a surprise but you will receive at least $30+ in Morphe brushes. All types of brushes are eligible including powder, foundation, contour, eyeshadow, and liner brushes AND we never ship the same brush twice!”

Q: Which month’s brushes will I receive?

A: “We start the next month’s brushes on the 23rd of each month. For example, if you sign up on September 23rd, you will receive October’s brushes. If you sign up between October 23rd to November 22nd, you will receive November’s brushes.”

Q: What if I don’t want my next set of brushes?

“No worries, we’ve got you covered! You can trade your brushes for some awesome alternatives including other brushes, lippies, palettes and much more. You can skip a month/payment entirely (you’ll hang on to your reward points you’ve been banking you just won’t collect new ones that month).”

Q: Is there a rewards program?

A: “Yes! When you sign up for MorpheMe, you earn reward points that can be redeemed for free makeup and free brushes. You can choose products from Morphe, Tarte, NYX, BeautyBlender and Benefit Cosmetics to name only a few, and we are constantly adding new gifts to our list of options. (Products, prices and shipping costs are subject to change.)”

Investing in a hobby (or potential career) may be costly, but it doesn’t always have to be! I just wanted to share yet another way I choose to support my hobby without breaking the bank!
