Morphe Live in Color (25L) Artist Palette ($20.00 for 1.41 oz.) is a brand new, restricted version palette the place 100% of internet proceeds are donated to The Trevor Project (between June and July 2019). In a sea of manufacturers celebrating Pride, there are just a few which might be hitting that charitable facet on a excessive notice, and Morphe is one in all them. Additionally, they’ve additionally arrange a strategy to donate on to The Trevor Project at checkout (on any buy) for $1, $three or $5. On their web site, there’s a detailed breakdown of the names used, which I assumed was a pleasant contact, they usually additionally have video stories from 12 LGBTQIA+ people.
The palette is bought out on-line, and I final noticed Morphe remark through social media that it was nonetheless accessible in some shops. It doesn’t look like they plan to do any restocks, so I don’t know that I’ll find yourself doing a full overview, however I did strive it a number of occasions (and struggled) so I can share a few of that preliminary ideas. I had larger hopes for the palette, because it swatched fairly nicely, however I discovered quite a lot of the shades tough to work with and find yourself making an attempt and eradicating twice earlier than producing the appears to be like proven above (which aren’t good or the place I needed them to be at by any means).
There was a good quantity of fallout with the matte eyeshadows, whereas the shimmers are thicker/denser and have been higher utilized with fingertips or moist brushes. I don’t assume the palette works nicely with common primer (like Urban Decay Primer Potion, MAC 24HR, NARS Smudgeproof, and so forth.), not to mention over naked pores and skin, and desires a tackier, thicker base like a white, cream eyeshadow or concealer. I had points the place the extra I constructed up a matte shade, it will definitely began to erase itself, and this additionally occurred after I tried so as to add a darker shade on prime (like one thing to deepen the crease). I additionally skilled heavy fading (inside 4 to 5 hours) with the mattes on their very own. It was, sadly, a poor expertise for me, though it appeared fairly promising when swatched.
You can all the time donate $5 or $10 to your favourite LGBTQIA+ group straight, in case you considered supporting this product however did need one thing of upper high quality. On the opposite hand, for those who use a white base and don’t thoughts fallout and a few additional effort, take pleasure in it as nicely. I simply didn’t wish to share swatches, which look promising, with out sharing that have was wildly totally different (in the incorrect route).
