I was able to get my hands on this gorgeous palette a few weeks ago when it was finally released on Ulta’s website. Morphe had a wait list that I never got off of.
If you are makeup obsessed then you are aware of the buzz of this palette or you have at least heard of it. I’m usually not one to jump on the hype train but this one just struck me. The colors are just so inviting that I could pass it up.
I really dig this packaging. The entire thing is different shades of white and then just the pop of color like he has painted it on. The Artist in me absolutely fell in love with it.
The back features a message from James written in silver which works well with the white tones.
The Actually palette is a flat matte black with the Morphe X James Charles written in a glossy black.
Nothing worth talking about on the back. I’m not sure why I have decided to include this actually.
When you open the palette the lid is the same flat black with “Unleash Your Inner Artist” written in glossy black.
The palette features 39 shades, 32 of the smaller ones and then 7 bigger ones in the middle. There is a plastic protector over top of them that features the shade names. Which while I love the idea I also hate it cause I’m going to lose that. I just am and I know it.
Here is the palette without the film. The shades are stunning and honestly, this picture doesn’t really do it justice.
Next, I am going to break these shades down. Since there are so many of them I’m going to do them row by row. As always remember I’m super pale so shades may read differently on me. Also, the swatches are everywhere since I used both of my arms to do them.

I have had this palette for about a month and I have created a few looks mainly with the same colors. I am really obsessed with the 2 bottom row since the shades are so bright and vibrant I’m attracted to those immediately.
This palette is amazing. The shades are buildable so you can lay them up. There isn’t a whole lot of fall out to where you lose all the product. The Shimmers are all so creamy and the Mattes are smooth which helps both be applied with ease. Plus they blend so easily without any trouble. You can really do so many looks with these. I only did these 4 that I was happy with I’ve been in a weird makeup test vibe lately so. I’m excited to continue playing with it and creating more look. If I create one I really dig I will do another Break the Look down about it.
I was able to score this one with my Ulta point so I didn’t have to pay for it. This Palette is $39 which is great if you want a good variety of colors.
It’s available online and in the store. I don’t see it available on Morphe website at this time.
Did anyone else get this one? Let me know what you think? Did you create anything fun with it?
