This palette. Let me tell you, it’s crazy. It’s been so hyped and beauty lovers all over the world have been waiting months to get their hands on it. The launch party was huge and the YouTube reviews are numerous. It was so in demand that it sold out in just 45 minutes. It will be coming back (date tbd) but I was able to get my hands on it. I’ve been using it for over a week now and I fell that I have a pretty good idea of how all the shades blend and perform.
Just a quick note about the packaging. It is a white cardboard as opposed to the typical black plastic Morphe is known for. While it looks nice in the pictures, I am not the biggest fan. I would prefer to have a sturdier packaging. That being said, it is pretty to look at.
Now, here are all the swatches starting with the top row and working left to right. I found that each shade swatches really well. I barely touched my finger to the pan and only swiped across my arm once. They felt so smooth and soft. The only exception is a few of the shimmer and metallic shades. They feel a little more gritty when they are swatched. It isn’t too bad though and they still look beautiful.
There are so many shades in the palette, the looks you can create are limitless. I love the options for a colorful smokey eye using the reds, blue, green or purple. There are also so many neutrals and warm tones. Here are some of the looks I’ve created over the last week, just to give you an idea.
While each shade has a name, it is not printed on the box. There was supposed to be a small card that had all the shades and names but one was not included in my package. The palette retails for $38 on the Morphe website and you can use Jaclyn’s affiliate code (JacAttack) to save some money.
Overall, I’m really impressed. I went back and forth on wether I would get this palette or not because I did not like how it was hyped and advertised. That being said, I am so happy I decided to get it. The colors are beautiful and the formula is perfect. I honestly see myself using this palette for a very long time.
Have you picked this palette up yet or are you planning to?
