Morphe and I have a love hate relationship. There are products that I am obsessed with and other that I’m not that big of a fan of. So when the brand came out with their holiday collection, I was excited to see exactly what it entailed. I had heard that the Morphe Holiday Collection would have brand new formulas and shades. The rumors were true. After trying them all, there is only one Morphe Holiday Collection product that I would recommend — the lipsticks.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the holidays are my favorite time to shop beauty. The Morphe Holiday Collection includes three eyeshadow palettes, two lip sets, and a glittery brush set. The brand was nice enough to send me over some of the collection to try out myself. They also sent over the new lashes, so let me know if you want a post specifically on them.
Hands down, the winner of the entire collection are the lipsticks. I absolutely love Morphe’s liquid lipsticks. If you’re looking for a product that doesn’t move and lasts all day, this is it. I have tried them before, but the Morphe Holiday Collection sets are especially great. Not only are they a great price, but the hues are stunning.
I can’t speak for the Paint The Town Red Set, because mine has not yet arrived in the mail. (Yes, I bought that one myself.) I’m absolutely in love with Paint The Town Nude that they sent me though. The name could use a change though. While these are great “nudes” for me, they aren’t for everyone. Paint The Town Neutral is more how I see them.
For $12, you get three different shades of pink with brown undertones. Sweets, Lulu, and Dainty are only available in this set. These are perfect for everyday wear or a night out, which is why I love them so much. I find myself grabbing for these every single day. Honestly, I’m really considering buying another for backup.
The best part about the set is how well they blend together.
These shades were definitely created with the others in mind. While the lightest pink is too light to wear on its own — on my skin — it looks great dabbed on the center of the other two shades. It gives the look even more depth. All in all, this set is worth every single penny.
When Morphe first came out, I was blown away by their selection. They offered good products for the price. Now, with their recent rebrand, I’m not so sold on them. The products look way more high end, but I feel like the quality just isn’t there. Morphe got so hyped up from the Jaclyn Hill palette to not follow through with the rest of their products.
I’m specifically talking about the shadows.
I absolutely loved the Jaclyn Hill Palette, so I was excited to give the Morphe Holiday Collection a try. To be completely honest, I was let down by their new eyeshadow palettes. They are not the same formula. Nor do they have the same color payoff. I have no idea what kind of crazy magic they did on the YouTuber’s palette. It did not get put into these ones.
That being said, I would pay $15 for the Day and Night Slayer Palettes. I think that for the price, they do their job. The $32 Dare To Create Palette is not worth the money. They should lower it down to the typical $23 and call it a day. That’s just my honest opinion.
If you’re looking to pick one and only one product from the Morphe Holiday Collection, it’s the liquid lip sets. Not only are they the most affordable, but they’re worth the entire price. Heck, I would pay $32 for the three lipsticks easily, but I’m very glad that I didn’t have to.
Have you tried anything from the Morphe Holiday Collection? These are all my opinions on my own, so don’t take it as the final word. I’d love to hear what you guys think, if you have tried the products and feel differently. Overall, I think these would make great holiday presents.
