Makeup Brushes -Morphe -Brushes Elite Collection

DONT BE FOOLED, anyone who claims these are luxury or holy grail, is a teen makeup novice who thinks so because of YouTube.
I am a professional and I have years of experience with makeup and am not biast in any way
My favourite brushes are zoeva and Wayne goes and they out preform my high high end brushes. Zoeva has a great affordable range and they last for ages, they wash good and don’t shed.

These are shockingly bad.
They are just cheap 99 cent brushes that they tried to make look better by putting them in the cheapest most awful cheap gold plastic I have ever felt.
The synthetic hairs are bad cheap and they won’t take product so you’ll have to put the product on your skin first and forget it with eyeshadow.
These shocked me by how cheap they feel.
These are not worth it and they aren’t gonna last I thought they would have at least some heavy to them but nope they’re just plastic and cheap plastic at that.
They work okay for blending face products but only if you place it on the skin and not the brush but they are the same as any other cheap brush and they do not last.
Washing them ruins them, they shed bad and they only live through a couple of washes and you must use brush guards because they don’t keep shape.
I own a ton of brushes from professional to luxury to Sephora end to low end.

These are good supplemental brushes for when you just need one back up for if yours is dirty but these are not dependable every day brushes.

They are cheap quality. These are not different from their other brushes which I bought to compare they are simply in cheap gold plastic instead of black.
Don’t be fooled and go with zoeva instead.
They are no different from elf or wet n wild.
I don’t know why I expected better, I got three other sets and they went into the trash after the first wash. These are just burner brushes with perceived value thanks to hawking them on YouTube

Eye Shadow -Morphe -25A Copper Spice Eye Shadow Palette

I initially had my eye on a couple of pricier high end palettes, but this one caught my eye. With the popularity of YouTube and Instagram makeup tutorials, there's been a surge of new brands popping up. I do typically stick to high end eye shadow palettes as the less expensive ones tend to disappoint me with chalky texture, and poor pigmentation. I also have to learn to keep my budget under control and $50 palettes don't help. This has 25 shades, with a mix of mattes and shimmers for under $20.

Pigmentation varies from shade to shade, some are great and some really need to be packed on. Texture/smoothness again mixed, though most seem to be pretty smooth with a few that are chalky/dry feeling. Product wear really depends on using not just a primer, but a good primer. I have not tried these without primer, they color really lasts and does not crease with UDPP anti-aging primer. I also tried this with the NYX white eye shadow primer and the wear was only mediocre. These do blend well as the package claims. I like that there colors tend to go well together, making it easy to create a variety of looks.

For the price this is really good value, it's not super high quality, but it's better than most drugstore brands.

To make a long story short, I'm not sure if the palette I received from Ulta is a dud or if that is the quality of the Jaclyn Hill palette itself.
Pros: The wide array of color selection gives the user many options for different eye looks. I like that there are a lot of mattes and a different variety of finishes so that it makes it very easy to create a full look.
Cons: Where do I start here? The biggest issue I have with this palette is that the blendablity and pigmentation of this palette leaves much to be desired. The lighter matte shades in the top row have almost no color pay off and I find that all the mattes in general tend to go on the eye patchy and are difficult to blend out. As far as the shimmers go, the pigment is seriously lacking and I found myself having to dig into the eye shadow pan and build it up several times to get the smallest amount of pigment off of it.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this palette because I think you can get palettes of much better quality for your money. I gave this palette 3 stars because it is a very average "okay" but not fantastic product.

I was finally able to snag this palette at Ulta when I was visiting Seattle last weekend!!! I didn't even know Ulta carried Morphe / Colourpop let alone collab products (thought they were exclusively online only)!!!!

I do fine this palette pretty expensive for being a Morphe palette considering their other palettes are $23, this one is $38. I know Jaclyn said the e/s in her palette have differently formulas etc but still... lol. There's a beautiful array of colors and I'm super happy that Jaclyn added pops of color in as well. I do wish that where the pans were, the material was "glossy" so that it would be easier to clean. it's just paper and when fall out gets on there, trying to wipe it off doesn't work and it just smears everywhere and it looks like a hot mess.

Some of the colors are extremely pigmented and apply very nicely and blend out beautifully. Other colors aren't as pigmented and I need to keep dipping my brush in repeatedly to get more color. Perhaps I'll try using my fingers next time (although using my fingers isn't my preferred method of application when working with powder e/s).

All in all, You can definitely create a full eye look with it but I prefer the Carli Bybel one. Also, i find that the quality of e/s in the CB palette is far superior (without any "misses") than this Jaclyn one and the CB one is significantly cheaper as well.

Highlighters -Morphe -Morphe x Bretman Babe in Paradise Highlighter Palette

on 5/10/2018 12:27:00 PM

I was pleasantly surprised by the new Morphe x Bretman Babe in Paradise Highlighter Palette. This contains several shades with a good range with a very light color you can use on the high points of your face and several colors which are various shimmery bronze tones. This is decently priced but also comes with an awesome fan brush which is a nice bonus. The colors all apply easily but be careful because they are super highly pigmented so a little goes a very long way! They blend easily and lasts all day. If you are looking for a nice highlighter palette this is one to check out. My review and swatches can be seen here:




Makeup Brushes -Morphe -M433

on 5/10/2018 4:04:00 AM

I'll start by saying it is a decent brush. It apply color smoothly and it gets the job done. I'm not particularly a fan of Morphe because I fell into the hype about a year and half ago and ordered a bunch of brushes that either broke or were garbage quality. I kept hearing this was a dupe for the 217 which is my favorite blending brush. So much so that I own 4 217s. I personally don't think it's a Dupe. The 217 comes to more of a point and is a lot more densely pack than the 433. You can tell a major difference by how light/cheap the handle feels on the 433. I know I'll probably be replacing it sooner then later, but at $6 a brush that is to be expected. Will I reach for the 433 probably. Will it replace my 217, no. I would say if you're on a budget or just don't want to pay the extra money for the Mac version you're still getting a good brush that will get the job done.

Hands down, this is a great eye shadow palette. I waited quite a while before buying this because I didn't think I needed it. I actually don't need any eyeshadows ever because I am makeup hoarder. Then I started seeing youtube videos about it and it intrigued me. Now that I have the palette, I really did need it and here's why...this palette has everything. There are great highlight shades, transition shades, neutrals, warm tones, cool tones, and a few bright pops of color. This palette is ideal for everyone. A lot of time and thought was put into this palette. The matte shades are soft and velvety and there are some shimmer shades that almost feel wet because they go on so creamy. I found almost all the shades to blend like a dream. I love the soft transition shades. I don't care that it doesn't have a mirror or that it's a larger palette. I love it. The price is great, $38 and they always have some kind of a code for 10% off.


Eyes -Morphe -15-N Night Master Eyeshadow Palette

I love this palette! Morphe cosmetics have just gotten outstanding. I have been to their site a million times. I probably check the website at least every other day to see if anything is new. Somehow I had overlooked this palette. It isn't one of the larger ones, but it isn't really small either. It's a 15 pan palette of beautiful russet browns (shimmers and mattes) plums from medium range to deep mulberry. That doesn't sound like it would be coompatable but they are. This is a shade range that can be worn during the day if applied with a light hand - but it is marketed (reasonably so) as a more of a night-time, going out range of pigments.

It is highly pigmented (as most Morphe products are) the rich frosts/shmmers are stunning. They apply best with your finger, but go on well with a brush too. You just cannot go wrong with this product if you like a darker themed palette. I am a sucker for any kind of brown eyeshadow -- and even more so with plums. I got the best of both worlds in this palette. For $15.00, and if you can find and affiliate code, even less, how could you stop yourself!!! It's an added gem to anyones collection. I know it is to my treasured eyeshadow addiction!! Oh, the packaging is top notch - it's encased in a metal container - which closes and seals with magnets I think. It's very secure, at any rate. All of the shades are buttery soft with little to no fallout. I am an eyeshadow junkie -- and I'm very impressed.
Way to go Morphe!!! If you are on the fence with this one... Get it! You will not be disappointed!!!

I have to say this is an extremely good pallet. Knowing she is a perfectionist just from her you tube channel you can tell she worked hard. I don't like the packaging with. Names on the back. That's only complaint. ALL THE SHADOWS are very pigmented and blend seamlessly. It seams there is a matte shimmer and texture colors with about four color stories. Maybe that in my head. LoL. Great colors, Great job Jaclyn

I wanted to use a hundred different swear words a thousand times but I’m scared my review gets taken down. I’M JUST SO OBSESSED WITH THIS PALETTE. Seriously, Morphe is doing it SO right. Pigmented, creamy, long-lasting, awesome colours. Honestly couldn’t ask for more.

Palettes -Morphe -35P Plum Eyeshadow

I came across the Morphe palette here at MUA, and after reading the reviews, decided to give it a try despite some of the negative reviews stating poor color payoff and chalky texture . I have a hard time finding just the right, cool toned, neutral shadows, whether for everyday or for a smokey eye and find plum based colors work well. This palette was very reasonably priced on EBay so I ordered.

The first thing I noted was the size of the palette - forty, full sized, color choices! Then, looking at the individual colors, I was impressed with the variety of shades offered at such a reasonable price. Color swatches on my arm seemed smooth and well-pigmented, applied smoothly, no major flaking so it was time for a test drive.

After my usual primer, foundation, and additional shadow primer (usually, Too Faced, Bare Minerals or Urban Decay), I did a daytime, modified smokey eye using a bit of this, a dab of that; basically, playing with the colors. Wow! I noted great pigment, blendabiliyy, and texture, very little flaking and colors that work so well with my fair skin and blue-grey-green eyes. The more dramatic colors work well as a liner or for a tiny pop of color, while the majority Re neutral variations, all of which play well together. I’ve had this palette for two weeks now and find myself reaching for it everyday. With a primer, I find the color lasts through a full workday and easily allows me to add for a more dramatic night shadow if needed.

I would not hesitate to recommend this and old definitely purchase again, although at the size of each color well, I imagine it will be some time until I hit pan. Great job, Morphe; I look forward to trying more Morphe products.

Bought this to see what the hype was about with this palette and Morphe overall. At first i loved it with it being one of the first eyeshadow palettes I’ve bought. The range of colours for the price is good! However some colours look the exact same , the shimmers aren’t pigmented also I had to scratch off the first layer of product on majority of the shades as it wasn’t picking up on my brushes. I wouldn’t buy again just because there’s way too many browns.

Eye Shadow -Morphe -35K

on 4/8/2018 3:41:00 PM

Morphe 35K is their ‘Koffee’ (cool toned) brown and grey palette, with a mix of matte and shimmer shadows.
This has some realy gorgeous gunmetals and taupes, as well as a good few light/ neutral transition shades.
Good pigmentation and they blend really nicely, a couple of the shimmers do produce a fair amount of fallout but using a damp brush helps.
Like all Morphe palettes the packaging leaves a lot to be desired (its cheap, large and unwieldy) but at 65p per shadow it’s defo substance over style.

*Tip: Pretty much every shade in this palette is wareable for both day & night so it’s a real staple if you like cool tones. If you’re new to makeup check out some YouTube tutorials on the 35K for inspiration.
