Hey everyone, how have you been? I’m so glad the nice weather is back! I recently got my hands on the Morphe x James Charles mini palette, as Morphe had a pretty good sale going on online. I have never massively wanted this palette, despite its popularity, but it was such a good offer and you can’t deny that the palette has a beautiful colourful shade range which will definitely come in handy.
I have been playing around with the colours a little and decided to share my thoughts on the James Charles mini palette, as well as 2 looks I have created using it.
About the palette + Review
Morphe offer the original James Charles palette, as well as the mini version. They have the exact same shadows, but the mini palette contains smaller pans than the original.
The palette comes in a white box with James Charles face on it, and inside is a sleek black palette. It contains 39 shadows, and a big mirror.
There is a plastic sheet with the shade names written on it.
As you can see it has an impressive shade range perfect for colourful looks, but you can also create something a little more natural too.
Morphe create some of the best eyeshadows that aren’t super pricey. The celebrity / influencer collaborations, such as this James Charles one are a little more expensive than their regular palettes. However 39 good quality shades for £39 isn’t too bad when compared to other brands.
The quality of this palette is unsurprisingly great. I find the shadows pigmented and most of them easy to blend. I did struggle slightly with a deep purple shade, it was hard to make sure it didn’t go patchy when layering the pigment up. However, this is a common problem with some purple shadows.
The black in this palette is amazing – it is very pigmented and super black!
You definitely get some fall out with these shadows. This isn’t a problem for me personally.
I’m glad Morphe included a mirror in this palette, as this one will be great to travel with thanks to the shade selection!
For my first look using the Morphe x James Charles mini palette, I of course decided to use the pinks & purples. I used Pinkity Drinkity all over my eyelid, then added Skip into the inner an outer portions of my eyelids to create a halo eye type look. In the centre of my eyelid I popped on the purple shimmer shade Artistry. The shimmer I would definitely recommend using your finger to apply for best pigment payoff. I mimicked what I did on my eyelid on my lower lash line.
For the second look I used the orangey shades. I applied the light orange shade 518 on the inner portions of my eyelids. Next I applied Rusted on the middle section of my lid. Then I popped You’re Kidding on the outer portion of my eyelid. I made sure I blended all the colours seamlessly together, continuing to go over each shade and apply more pigment as needed. All 3 of these shades performed super well – it was easy to blend them together!
I have swatched just a few shades from the Morphe x James Charles palette:
That’s all for this post!
