Rae Morris 15 Precision Bent-Liner Brush and 16 Brow Definer Brush review and comparisons.

As you may already know, my brush collection is very edited.  My basic requirements when it comes to makeup brushes (natural or synthetic) are straight forward; they must be soft and exude remarkable craftsmanship.  So when my less than exquisite brow brush began falling apart, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and invest in Rae Morris 15 Precision Bent-Liner Brush ($18 USD) and 16 Brow Definer Brush ($18 USD). These two brushes successfully fulfill my insatiable need for convenience, quality and functionality.  I hope you enjoy.

  • What sets Rae Morris brushes apart from any other brands is her signature magnetic base. Personally, this feature has made my makeup application faster and more pleasurable.  I simply attach the brushes to the metal base of my makeup mirror (as shown above) and easily reach for the brushes when needed–no more fumbling around my drawer looking for the appropriate brush.

  • Rae Morris 15 Precision Bent-Liner Brush and 16 Brow Definer Brush have a slim design–perfect to store in any magnetic palette.  As you can imagine, such a convenient storage solution is ideal for traveling.
  • For the above photo, all three Rae Morris brushes (Rae Morris 8 Medium Blender reviewed here) are nestled perfectly in my MAC Palette and can easily be used to create and complete any look.  If only my Chikuhodo Z-5 Brush came with a magnetic base, then my life would truly be complete.  🙂

  • The Rae Morris 15 Precision Bent-Liner Brush is composed entirely of synthetic fibers.  The long tapered brush tip is perfect for creating a straight line on the upper lash line.  When compared to the Laura Mercier Angled Liner Brush, the Rae Morris Brush is longer, has more tightly packed fibers and a finely tapered tip to create the perfect winged liner.
  • This brush is unique in that it possesses a certain amount of give without being too stiff or difficult to maneuver.  Gels, liquids and powders cling to the bristles beautifully, creating a seamless line.
  • The acutely bent angle is ideal for reaching the inner corners of the eye and drawing an extended line past the tear duct.  Personally, this brush works especially well for those of us with longer lashes–the bent tip is able to reach above the lashes, for a clear shot of the lash line.  This is also useful for false lash wears to hide the lash band without smudging any liner on the lashes themselves.
  • This brush also makes the perfect choice for makeup novices that are not yet skilled in eyeliner application–the bent angle does most of the work.
  • Based on Rae’s recommendation, I can verify the pointed tip is fantastic for filling in beauty spots that have been masked by foundation.  🙂

  • Rae Morris 16 Brow Definer Brush is a great brush–this little wonder is a true multitask(er).  The tightly packed fibers retain their composure despite the amount of scrubbing incurred after every use. Naturally, the soft synthetic fibers can easily handle a variety of products, from gels, to creams to powders.
  • The hairs are cut to a precise angle and the top of the brush can be manipulated (by dampening and pinching the upper part) so that it resembles the finest, sharpest edge, to deliver a paper-thin line–any powdered eyeshadow can easily be used as an eyeliner.

  • For my part, the 16 Brow Definer is used mostly to fill-in my brows and to line the upper waterline.  As you can tell from the above photos, all of my other angled brushes have issues not befitting of my needs at the present moment. Some have splayed hairs, some are lacking density and proper girth, and others simply are composed of coarse, stiff material that is too abrasive for my tastes (looking at you MUFE).
  • This Brow Definer is quite useful for drawing in the finest hairs–great for spars eyebrows.  On my naturally full brows, this brush deposits color on the skin and defuses the pigment nicely throughout the hairs.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Rae Morris 15 Precision Bent-Liner Brush and 16 Brow Definer Brush have become irreplaceable in my collection.  The thin handle design, tightly packed fibers, fantastic magnetic base, sleek appearance and multipurpose functionality are certainly present in these brushes.  Frankly, I have truly become accustomed to having my brushes so accessible at the base of my mirror, I have a feeling this will not be the last we see of Mrs. Morris’s line.  🙂  Until next time, be well, stay safe and be happy.
