I've had the James Charles Palette for a while, and waited to really give it a few tries before writing a review. Like other Morphe palettes it's a good value, they a priced much lower than mid end brands but the majority of the eyeshadows are well pigmented. I haven't used lower end shadows in several years just because the color payoff was usually terrible. this is my second Morphe palette. I like that there are a variety of colors from brights, to naturals so it can be used for almost any kind of look. I also like that again as with other Morphe palettes all of the colors have at least one coordinating shade. I hate buying palettes that have those dud shades that don't really work with anything else and typically are difficult to use.
My only complaint is that the pigmentation is not consistent, most are good but a few could use some help. The matte shades seem to be the most pigmented, followed by the shimmers second, than the glitters being the least pigmented. Take the shade Artistry for example, it's a beautiful perfect purple glitter. Shade wise it's may favorite in the entire palette. However the color payoff is not that great and needs to be layered to achieve a nice level of color. The shade Hello is a nice light blue shimmer, but takes a couple layers to look nice, but it does pair well with Playground which is a nice bright blue matte. Years ago UD had a palette with a shade similar to Hello. I never wore that shade in the UD palette because it didn't really go with anything else in the palette. I also really enjoy the shades Sister, Mary, and Literally. They work well as a trio, or pairing two of the three for a nice summery look.
Blendability is very similar to to pigmentation, though the shimmers seem to blend the best, Mattes in the middle, and glitters again last. With primer these do last and the colors stay vibrant without creasing or fading.
