Morphe x Kathleenlights Palette (Review)

The palette comes in this black magnetic cardboard packaging with the name of the palette printed on it. It has a total of 15 eyeshadows with a mix of mattes and shimmers. It’s worth $14.99 at Morphe’s website and I believe this is already sold out but there are still online shops where you can buy this especially here in the Philippines. I bought mine from @beautyboutiquephil (instagram) at P1300 excluding shipping fee.

The shades in the palette are a mix of exclusive shades (that Kathleen herself customized) and permanent shades. The shimmers/metallics are pigmented. They swatch and apply beautifully. There is minimal to zero fall out. They are pigmented on their own but they can be amplified using a setting spray or water. The mattes are quite nice. They are not the best mattes out there but they are quite good for the price you pay. Some of them are smooth but some of them are quite stiff. The stiffer shadows will require you more work but for me it’s just fine. (I tried palettes which some shadows are really tough to blend so this isn’t that bad).

The most difficult shade that I had to work with was that black on the 3rd row. It lacks in pigmentation and it’s harder to blend. The shade that is my ultimate favorite and that made me buy this palette is that emerald green. It’s so stunning the pigmentation is there. It’s not hard to build and blend. That mustard shade is beautiful but it’s quite stiff. Another favorite of mine is the first shade from the 1st row. It’s a stunning inner corner highlight and can also be used as a brow bone highlight. The second shade from the 1st row is my fave to set my eyeshadow primer and to highlight my brow bone.

So the shades in this palette can be used for a daytime to nighttime look, for a natural and glammed up look. This is the kind of palette you can bring and you can come up with various looks with. It’s the kind of palette that you can travel with and carry around.

Some of the shadows will need help so I suggest you use a primer to make it last longer and to avoid creasing and fading. This will also help you blend the shadows better. As I’ve mentioned above, if you want the pigments to be strong you can use a setting spray or water to pump up the pigmentation.

Overall, the palette is good I think it’s worth it. Yes, it’s not the best palette out there but it’s good especially for the price you pay. It’s affordable and the quality is better than other affordable palettes out there. If you can still get your hands on this I suggest you grab the chance and try it.
