Morphe came out with this limited edition palette as a part of their holiday season, and it was such a hit that they decided to continue it as a part of their Morphe palette family. And daaamn I’m glad they did! I fell in love with the palette at first sight and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!
It’s got these beautiful 39 shades, of which 4 rows are the regular Morphe sized pans and 1 row of super sized transition shades. The shades come in a variety of textures from matte to creamy to shimmery to metallic. The packaging is pretty different from their previous 35 pan palettes. Its a sleek cardboard packaging with magnetic closure.
Let’s talk about the pros and cons.
The shades are super pigmented and are easy to blend, except for the black shade (Muse). A couple of swirls in the pan and in one swipe you get this intense colour as you’ll see in the swatches below.
There is very little fallout, so you don’t have to worry much about the eyeshadow going everywhere.
Affordable! Morphe has always been the brand that has super affordable palettes without compromising on the quality. You get 39 beautiful shades for 34 USD, that’s approximately less than a dollar per shade!
Moving on to the Cons:
It doesn’t have a highlighting shade. So if you're into highlighting the inner corners and brow bone, you'll probably miss that in this palette.
The black shade (Muse) isn’t as nearly pigmented as the other shades and was difficult to blend. It looks more like a dark grey rather than midnight black.
Some bright shades like Create had stained my skin a little, so it required more cleansing than the rest of my makeup.
Following are the swatches of each shade and a couple of looks created using this palette.
(Note: I’ve used my regular face highlighter to highlight the inner corner and the brow bone.)
The verdict; for me personally, this seemed like an all inclusive palette except for a couple of tiny misses. It has neutral shades for an everyday look and it’s got bold and shimmery shades for a more fancy schmancy look. All in all, it’s a pretty great palette! Also, if you’re just a beginner and you want to start out without wanting to break the bank, this could very well be your go to palette because of all the looks you could create with these beautifully combined shades all in a single palette!
