After ages searching for an eyeshadow palette that was colorful enough to avoid purchasing several ones, I finally found on: The Morphe 25L Live in Color Artistry Palette, which was created to celebrate Pride, where 100% of net proceeds, between June and July/19, were donated to The Trevor Project , awesome right?! And you know whats also very exciting?! The fact that this is the first time I’m trying a makeup product from Morphe, so far I’ve only tried their brushes, which I actually really like.
It’s sad to say that it was a limited edition eyeshadow palette, so now it’s a little bit hard to find it for purchase and I didn’t find any indication on Morphe’s website or on their Instagram that it would be restocked. I got mine not so long ago, from Glamcart.ae for AED150 + Shipping, which isn’t bad for an eyeshadow palette this size.
The packaging is beautiful, and it has a reasonable sized mirror, which I appreciate.
With 25 shades:
- 13 Mattes (Milk, Pride, Heart, #LoveWins , Sunlight, Life, Sexuality, Truth, Thrive, Nature, Art, Parade and NYC)
- 9 Shimmers (1978, Culture, SF, Rise Up, Harmony, Activism, Make Magic, Peace and Gilbert)
- 3 Pressed Glitters (Liberation, Stonewall and Healing)
It’s safe to say, I’ll probably not be purchasing a colorful eyeshadow palette anytime soon, this one, pretty much, cover all my basis.
Even though I’d describe them as very pigmented eyeshadows, I have to say… its a little bit tricky to build them up and to get it to blend seamlessly, don’t get me wrong, it can be done, but it takes a little bit more time than usual. There is a fair amount of fallout, especially with the matte ones, so I’d recommend doing your eyes makeup first and to use a tackier and lighter, than your skin tone shade, base, such as the MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot, and for the shimmers it surely works best if applied with the finger tips or a slightly wet brush.
I’ve created this Monochromatic Makeup Look using the shades “Sunlight” and “Healing” and as a base I used the Nyx Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Milk”, but I’ve noticed that after couple hours it faded slightly, which isn’t great.
So, I decided to try once again, using different shades (Milk, Sexuality, 1978 and NYC) and as a base the Inglot Eyeshadow Primer mixed with the Born This Way Concealer from Too Faced in the shade “Almond” and to make the liner I mixed the shade “Sexuality” with the Inglot Duraline.
It worked so much better and it lasted all day long, my eyelids were a little bit stained even after double cleansing, which is expected with pink eyeshadows, but overall really happy with my purchase!
