I’m here with another Morphe review, specifically for their new collaboration eye shadow palette with Youtube beauty icon KathleenLights. I’ve heard so many good things about the Morphe eyeshadow formula, so when I heard one of my favorite Youtubers was doing a collaboration with them I was stoked to try them out. I was even more stoked at the $14.99 price tag!
Unlike my last Morphe review, you can check it out here, I am here to give an ecstatic two thumbs up stamp of approval! I was thrilled to see that the eyeshadows which get so much hype from so many Youtube beauty channels actually do live up to their reputation. The metallic shades are buttery smooth and their matte shades blend out so smoothly. You can watch Kathleen’s video here where she talks about her palette and the reasons behind the colors she chose.
The eyeshadows actually have some pretty impressive longevity. I wore one look for 11 hours the other day and didn’t have a bit of creasing, fading, or smudging. What’s more impressive than the quality of these shadows is the price. I don’t know how they make their products so affordable, but you just keep doing what you’re doing Morphe team! The palette is currently sold out (it sold out in two days!) but I’ve heard that Kathleen is lobbying to get the Morphe team to bring it back one more time for another round since it sold out so quickly.
What really seemed to put Morphe on the market were their 35 color palettes, which retail for only $22.99. They also have a few smaller palettes including some new minis with 8 eyeshadows for $9.99. If you’ve never tried out their products, I highly recommend their eyeshadows and their brushes! They are absolutely fantastic and you just can’t beat the prices for the amount of product that you get. Hautelook is currently having a sale on Morphe with a lot of their 35 color palettes marked down to $15.00, among other things. So if you are interested in checking out the brand the sale goes on for four more days.
I recreated this tutorial from Jaclyn Hill and I love the way the colors work together! My only issue, which really doesn’t have anything to do with the eyeshadows, is that shimmer shades transfer up into my crease. I know it’s because I have hooded eyelids, but if you know of a solution to this I would love to know!
I love all the shades in this palette! All of the matte colors, with the exception of the neutral cream color, are unique to my collection. I love that I get to play with some orange and burgundy transition colors especially since it’s the fall season when these colors are so trendy and stylish, but I’ll wear it all year long because who cares about “seasonally appropriate” makeup looks and colors. Makeup is just for fun anyway!
I love that there are a variety of transition shades ranging from warm to cool, which is one of the great things about this palette. It is definitely tipped towards the warmer spectrum of color, but the plum, purple and burgundy shades lend themselves very well towards a cool eye look if so desired. Even the greens are great for a cool look, though they work quite well for a warm eye. Another great staple is that this palette has a matte black, which I think is just as crucial as a matte vanilla/cream shade for just about any look.
Have any of you tried any Morphe products before? I’d love to know what your favorites are if you have! Have a wonderful week!
