Hi. How are ya? Today I’m super excited to share my thoughts on the new Morphe x Jeffree Star Artistry Eyeshadow Palette. When I first saw this palette, I knew I had to add it to my collection. First of all, the entire outer packaging is pink. Not to mention, that this is a really large palette, which makes you feel like you’re getting a lot for your money. Plus, almost the entire color story is different shades of pink (or shades that compliment pink) with a dash of green and a splash of sparkle.
The Morphe x Jeffree Star palette is available at Morphe.com and is $35. It contains 30 eyeshadows that are a mix of matte, satin, shimmer, and glitter formulas. It is part of Jeffree’s second collaboration with Morphe. The full collaboration includes the eyeshadow palette, a 10 piece brush set, a Jeffree-fied version of the Set & Refresh Mist (think pink and “Starberry” scented), and a re-released makeup sponge set. Of course, all of the items in the collection are pink!
There are a few things about this eyeshadow palette that I think are extra special. First of all, even though Jeffree has his own makeup line, he made sure that every shade in this palette is a brand new shade – you won’t find any of them in either the existing Morphe or Jeffree Star lines. Another thing I think is so cool is how personalized this palette is to Jeffree himself. He said he wanted to make it super personal, and that is reflected not only in the specific shades, but in the shade names as well. For example, some of my favorites are “*Wand Noise*”, “Dog Mom”, “Self-Made”, “Designer Label”, “Millions”, and “Nate”.
Another thing I love about this palette is how many looks you can create. Each row was designed to create a different look. Or you can always mix and match to create your own. Although the pink, purple, green, and gold shades are all stand outs, there are actually a ton of beautifully neutral and simple looks you can create with this palette too. For example, I used “Welcome”, “Back”, “To”, “My”, “Dog Mom”, and “Honest Truth” to create a really pretty blushing peach look for a bridal shower this weekend. Honestly, when I swatched this palette, I thought “Has there ever been a more Tiffany palette?!”
However, my Morphe x Jeffree Star look for this post is all “Self-Made”. Of course I had to use the hot pink! I used “My” as a transition shade, and “Back” as my crease shade. Then I patted a TON of “Self-Made” all over my lid and blended like crazy. Since I wanted to pay homage to the green in the palette but struggle with using eyeshadow as liner, I used a Kat Von D green lip liner to line my eyes. Last but not least, I topped the liner off with Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal liner in Stage Dive. I totally love this look.
I also want to mention how amazing this formula is. Even the lightest shades are so pigmented. I was very impressed. But I have to call out the shade “Millions” – a stunning gold glitter. When I first lightly swatched it, nothing really happened. However, when I got a bit more aggressive, the formula felt almost like a cream shadow. It was so silky and smooth. Then, when I swatched it on my arm, almost ALL of the glitter came off on my arm. With very little left on my finger. It was the craziest thing. And the glitter is SO intense. It is really beautiful.
Overall, I love this palette. I love the inclusion of the brown, gray, and black shades so you can create a more “neutral” or smokey look. I love all of the soft basics like the creams and blushes and peaches. And you know I love ALL of the pinks! I wish I had this palette all summer instead of already heading into fall. But with all of the crazy makeup launches I’ve seen coming up, we might be headed for a colorful winter!
