For a while now, I’ve been contemplating about buying a Morphe Palette(s). I go back and forth with putting them in my cart, putting in my payment info, yet I pause just before I can click send. These palettes are pretty inexpensive, so why am I hesitating about ordering one? I’ve done my research. I’ve watched videos on them – not just from the big beauty influencers who are getting paid to give a good review. I’ve looked at pictures, swatches, checked to see what some were saying over on Instagram. For the most part I’ve heard good things about the Morphe palettes, however, I’ve also heard some not so good things. Some claim the eyeshadows are chalky or powdery and feel cheap, not easy to blend, while pigmented, they don’t have the same intensity as they appeared in swatches or looked in the pan. Others claim these palettes are some of their favorites with an affordable price point.
I think it just all comes down to personal preference. I think I’m on the fence because I really just don’t want to waste my money. It’ll either go one of two ways… I’m going to really love the palette, or I’ll hate it.
Just from looking at the palettes, the shimmers look pretty nice. That’s what is getting my attention. They look sparkly, vibrant, I’m fantasizing about the many different looks I could create. On the other hand, I’m thinking, how good could these palettes be for the price? They remind me of those cheap palettes that was all the rage a few years ago. The ones you could get off of Ebay? You got like 100 shadows or something crazy for like $20! I bought one back then because I was thinking, how bad could it be? Pretty bad. They looked cheap, felt cheap, and sucked as far as blending and pigmentation goes. If it’s one thing I hate, it’s cheap shadows that perform, well, cheaply. I’m all for saving money where I can, but I want some type of quality and want a good product, otherwise it’s just not worth it to me and I’d rather pay more, if I’m going to get quality. When it comes to shadows, I just won’t compromise with what I like & am used to- good performance and quality. I hate nothing more than trying to work with cheap shadows that are too chalky or powdery, or just vanish once you go to apply them. No. No. No. I wish Morphe sold these palettes in Sephora or Ulta. Somewhere I could swatch them and see for myself how I like them.
Who knows, maybe these palettes work great. Maybe I’ll buy one and kick myself for not purchasing it sooner. If it was as simple as judging by a product from looks alone, I’d already own a few of these.
- I love the variety these palettes offer
- I love how many shadows you get in a palette
- I love that they have a palette for mattes and shimmers only
- I love how they appear to be so pigmented.. so sparkly!
- I love how affordable they are
- They look so gorgeous!
If only it were that easy. These are all just things I’m keeping in mind and I think why I’ve been hesitant on buying. One of these days I may cave and go for it.
The next possible purchase I’m wondering if I should buy comes from Too Faced.
I missed out on the Sweet Peach palette when it was first released and now I’m wondering if I should buy it or not. I like Too Faced. I like their eyeshadows, I own I think two eyeshadow palettes. I have no problems with performance or pigmentation with their shadows… but they’re not my favorite when it comes to shadows. I don’t know why. As I said, I have no problems with the shadows, I just hardly ever find myself reaching for them. When I’m going to create an eye look, I don’t usually think of my Too Faced palettes. I just feel like I own a lot more better shadow options when it comes to palettes? Don’t get me wrong, I think their packaging is soooo adorable! It’s always so fun, girly, different. As I mentioned, I think the quality of their shadows are great. They perform wonderful! I don’t know what it is, maybe they just don’t wow me enough when it comes to the shadows or the selection?
I think I want to get the peach blush and maybe some lippies… as far as the palette goes? I dunno!!! The colors look pretty & you know how I feel about my peach shades! I just don’t know if I’ll use this palette often, or if it will go unused like my other Too Faced palettes. I want to say I’ll use it often… ugh… undecided!!
Are you guys planning on picking anything up from the Peach Collection? Do you already own the Peach Palette? Is this something I NEED! (I do want it) What are your thoughts on the Morphe palettes? Do you like them? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
