Morphe x KathleenLights – One Week, One Palette #4

Today I’ll be reviewing the (unfortunately actually limited edition) palette curated by my favorite YouTube creator. I deeply adore this palette, just like I deeply adore Kathleen. I know this palette isn’t available anymore, but I think it’s important to continue sharing reviews and looks from older palettes beyond when they’re available in main retailers since there’s so many sites out there where you can purchase older or gently used makeup.

I love the colors in this palette, but I love how they apply even more. Each one works in the way that it needs to for what it is. The middle warm shade up top is a little bit more sheer than the other mattes in the palette, so it’s perfect as a transition/crease color that can be built up. The shimmers apply beautifully on one swipe. The two highlight shades are truly wonderful.

I feel like I can create both cool and warm looks using this palette, and it has a similar effect to how I described the LORAC PRO 2 as being a good mix of both. My absolute favorite shade in the palette is the deep mustard in the bottom right next to the black shade. I love how this makes my eyes turn to a much deeper blue, and it’s the shadow that made me fall in love with using yellows and (as Kathleen would describe) baby-pukey shades in my eyeshadow looks.

Sorry for how shadowy this photo is! Better pictures will come in the next (older) post!

Honestly, if they ever did a re-release on this, I would buy a backup – which is ridiculous for the amount of shadows I have, but this is for sure one of my favorite palettes in my whole collection.

What limited edition or discontinued palette do you love the most? What palette do you wish would be brought back?
