Kathleen Lights is one of my favourite youtubers. I don’t know what it is about her but I feel like I connect with her even though I have never met her or even had a conversation with her. She’s super down to earth and I’ve always enjoyed watching her videos. Every single time she collabs on a product I feel like it is my duty to purchase the product and support her. Plus everything she has worked on has turned out to be such an amazing product. I don’t regret anything I’ve purchased that she’s worked on. I have these exact same feelings about the recently released Kathleen Lights x Morphe Palette.
It was a limited edition item that was priced at $14.99 USD. It sold out in less than 2 days, but both Kathleen and Morphe have recently announced that the palette will be stocked one more time before Christmas! So if you didn’t get a chance to purchase this you will get another chance.
I’ve been using this palette almost every single day from the day I received it. I think my favourite part of this palette is how versatile it is. I’ve been able to create different looks almost every single day. It has a lot of staple shadows – a frosty white shade, a bone coloured shade, a black, multiple transition shades and then quite a few fun and more colourful shades. I’ve been able to use it both for everyday eye looks and for more smokey night time looks.
The top row is a collection of my most used colours. The first shade works perfectly as an inner corner highlight. The second shade is an identical match to my skin tone, which is why it doesn’t really appear in the swatches. This is great for blending shadows out or using it to highlight under my brow bone. The third shade in this row is the perfect transition shade. It has some gold glitter flecks in it but they don’t appear when you blend it into the crease. The fourth shade is my favourite for an all over lid shade. The fifth shade is perfect to blend out on the outer corner of the eye to deepen up a smokey look.
The second row has more of a cool tone feel – with the exception of the middle shade. The first shade is a cool tone grey that is perfect for blending deep into the crease to add some dimension to almost any eye look. The second shade is a perfect cooler tone for all over the lid. I usually like mixing the third shade on this row with the fourth shade on the top row, the shade in this row is just slightly darker. The fourth shade is fun to put a pink pop of colour into the crease, especially when you use it with the second shade in this row. I’m not a huge fan of darker pink shadows but the fifth shade here is a really pretty cranberry shade that I like blending into the outer crease.
The third row is a mixture of staple shades and more fun pops of colour! The first shade in this row is a metallic olive green colour. It looks amazing when you mix it with the second shade in this row. The second shade is a beautiful emerald green colour. It’s a little intimidating on it’s own but looks stunning mixed with the olive green. The third shade in this row is a matte brown that I enjoy buffing into the crease for just about any eye look. This fourth shade is a matte brown. It looks like a perfect shade of baby puke – as Jaclyn Hill would say. It looks perfect blended into the crease and it’s probably my most used shade currently. The final colour in this row is a very buildable matte black.
I recently took this palette when I was travelling to visit one of my best friends. We had a few events that we were planning to attend but also a few more chill and relax days. This palette was perfect for every single day that I was there. It gave me all the colours I usually wear while still being fun for going out.
Did you manage to pick up the Kathleen Lights x Morphe palette? What were your thoughts on it? If you didn’t pick it up are you planning on buying it when it is re-released? I definitely recommend it!
