Most Helpful Positive Review So I LOVE IT but there's a FEW disadvantages
Okay so I usually don't go out of my way to make a review but this one I felt was necessary to share my personal experience with... so to start off, I rushed to my nearest ulta the day this baby launched to the store and grabbed one of the last ones available, the palette is dreamy and unlike anything else on the market (me having all the eyeshadows I need I really didn't NEED to make this purchase but due to how unique the layout of this thing was and the colors I HAD to have it) so, anyway I grab this baby and begin to create a look the next day...
We will start off with the good first and the bad next,
Good: I love the color scheme, I love the transition shades and I adore the uniqueness of this pallete, there's shades in here you can't get anywhere else for the price range provided, maybe except Bh cosmetics their Brazil pallete.
Now for the tricky bad stuff: okay... so this baby is HARD to work with, I wouldn't recommend this to beginners or people who don't have quality brushes to work with, for example this thing packs a punch with pigmentation but blends poorly, I mean i was late to an event because I was struggling to get these colors to stay where I wanted them to stay and to make harsh lines unnoticeable (and yes I used a primer instead of concealer and was still having a difficult time working with this pallete) their was a lot of fallout which is normal I guess but with some beautiful shades it was a bit excessive, but I'm not complaining about that. Another thing I have to mention is that I was kind of underwhelmed with the shimmers- (most of them) their ... not, IMPRESSIVE like I had to really put in a lot of effort to get the effect I wanted using them, and that kind of disappointed me in terms of never EVER having such a hard time with blending and applying shimmers with morphe palletes. With that being said, I adore this pallete I would recommend it but I also would mention things to expect when working with this palette.
Most Helpful Critical Review Unfortunately not worth the hype.....
My daughter and I were very excited to get this pallet. I have a couple Morphe pallets and they are all just "ok", but I thought this one would be better, cuz James Charles talks about what great lengths he went to, the amount of time spent, on each formula to make the pallet pure perfection...unfortunately I think overall this pallet is now my worst Morphe pallette.
I primed my eyes with Mac paint pot, and couldn't wait to dive into the cooler shades.....About an hour later, only 1 eye, the 3 purple shades were not blending together harmoniously, I had very visible patches that literally looked like no product had been applied. I had purple freckles from fall out followed by staining. And the oddest thing of all, my Mac paint pot/primer had turned a very odd shade of a brownish/peachish/orangish shade. I have NEVER seen anything like this after any makeup application. The Mac paint pot gives timeless coverage when I wear Urban Decay, Bare Minerals, Too Face, Dior, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Stilla and Tart. I am not sure why this happened.....and only with James Charles pallet by Morphe, not my other Morphe palletts.
There are a lot of reveiws stating not for beginners or not a beginner's pallette.....This really has nothing to do with it. The colors dont automatically start blending out seamlessly cuz your a beginner or intermediate or a pro.......they just dont blend out nicely period.
Again, the palette is beautiful, wide range and variety of color. But that all changes if you actually want to use the pallet. My daughter and I wanted to love this pallette, couldn't wait for it to arrive, then couldn't wait for Christmas to be able to open it and use it...its upsetting ..we were so excited! Jeffery Star was more upfront and honest about this pallet than James. As you can watch, he is telling you it WILL stain your brushes, so try to use the same brushes for those colors. It was just a very big disappointment. Will be returning..........
Reviewed by 4105 customers Not as good as I thought it would be.

The colors in this pallette are beautiful, however they don't blend well and can be patchy. I got it because of all the recommendations and reviews from other people. It isn't worth the hype it received in the past.
Trash for sale

Colors have a large amount of kick back. The quality isn't great, just seems like another pallete made with poor ingredients. Colors are not blendable.

I got this as Christmas present and I was honestly soooo excited to try this out cause of how people had been raving about for 2 years. I never really had much use for it and when I finally trued using it I was so disappointed. The glitter shades are.. weird. They look patchy and have no pigment at all. Then the other shades were either VERY highly pigmented or barely pigmented. The hot pink and red shade stained my eyelids for 3 days and were pretty much impossible to get off. And yes, I tried almost every way and many types of makeup removers. Some of the shades blend pretty well but then there is that same problem again: Staining.

Easy to blend
Stained my eye lids

I used the bright pink on the palette and it stained my eye lid for 4 days, I literally tried everything to take it off but it wouldn't come off.
Not very good
S from IN
I only use it when I need it all over my face. The shimmers SUCK. The colorful mattes are pretty good but the neutrals are muddy. I would give it a 1 star but the purples are fantastic. I don't recommend this palette, it's patchy and the shimmers always have hard pan. Don't bother :/

I love this palette I have used it so many times and it's one of my favorites!!!
may from usa
colors are perfect and pigment is great! goes on smooth with little fallout, i wish i could do makeup better so i could wear all the colors out!
DJ from Florida
I bought this a long time ago and I've used most colors but it's not the best palette. For some reason certain colors are hard to blend and the color ends up fading. Also it's really hard to apply eyeshadows to my left eye for some reason the shadows don't stick on as well as my right eye so I need a palette that not to chalky. No matter how much eyeshadow I pack on or wether I prime my lids or not the eyeshadow doesn't always seem to stick on. But it is a great practice palette it just sucks I paid the actual full amount for this.

I love the pallete, not James.
Lilith from LR, AR
I really liked the pallete. Though, it does have quite a bit of fall out, which is to be expected since it's highly pigmented. I had bought a mini pallete a year ago, and bought the full sized one recently since it is on discount. I am not a big fan of James, but a big fan of the pallete. They are going to stop producing these soon, so get it while it lasts. Please keep in mind, the pinks and black WILL stain your face.

This pallete is so beautiful
decent palette for the right skin tone
london from usa
i have a fair complexion, so most of the pigments work great for me, but i don't think they would work on darker skin.
cindyyy from Texas
Definitely not the best morphe pallet I own. Points for the color selection, but many of the colors just aren't pigmented enough and are chalky.
Please do not buy
Don't buy from La
I bought it a couple months ago before he was canceled then I returned it yesterday
underwhelming, no pigment, stings my eye lol
zai bae from san Diego
I think I just got a bad one tbh or maybe they stopped producing and are trying to sell all of their existing palettes but its horrible and such a waste of Money even though it was on sale I literally have never regretted buying something so much
jazzy from ok
it doesn't work or really show on people with color at all. and like I was really excited buying it and it doesnt show-
One of my favorites ❤️
Kbb from Illinois
I have most of the morphe pallets and this is definitely one of my favorites! It has so many colors… the looks you create are endless . I love that after I put a primer on the use a decent brush for applying the shadow the colors go on and blend smoothly. This also has very little fallout. I love morphe!
Marie from Hemingway, SC
I am soooo glad that i bought this palette. Absolutely love the colors and they are really pigmented. So many color combinations to choose from! This palette has become my every day use. I will probably purchase another before they are sold out.
I don't recommend it
Jazz from Houston, TX
Don't recommend this pallet it doesn't have a mirror and even though it has multiple colors they're not pigmented big disappointment!!!
My fav eye palette
Nikki from Dallas
Love this palette so much.. the colors blend very well
Pasty and not Pigmented
Dajenea from Texas
It does not work on all skin tones from what I can tell. I used this palette for over a year but have not successfully been able to use every single shade. The purples, greens, and browns are very pigmented and are nice colors but everything else looks different from in the pan and I just hate the way they blend. The shimmers are also a staple in this palette but I would not recommend unless on sale.

Bad formula from a bad creator
My granddaughter was so excited to receive this
