Morphe The James Charles Palette.
The Morphe The James Charles Palette retails for $39US, and $50CAN at 32 x 0.06 oz/ 1.6 g Eyeshadows and 7 x 1.23 oz/ 3.5 g Eyeshadows.

It's been a while since I posted due to con crunch sewing madness...... I project at a time from now on. ;P I have to say it is fitting I had to put this post on hold because I got this palette 2 months before the internet blew up. My review is still the same as before as I'm not really a James Charlet follower but Wanted to see if this palette likes up to the makeup artist quality James Charles was trying to create.

Product:
The matte shades are a high pigmented formula that can be dry and little stiff to blend out, but I appreciate the higher pigment content that allows these shades to show true to the pan on the skin and last longer while wearing them.

The shimmer shades still do pack a punch in terms of pigmentation, and the texture is buttery which allows you to sheer out nicely if you want a wash of the shade as well.

Wear: Most I get about 5 to 8 hours of wear without a base. The matte shades do need a primer to last longer than 5 hours on me, but with a primer, they last all day. ;)

Packaging: Simple large black plastic compact with no mirror and a magnetic closure in the lid.

Verdict:
In terms of formula, the last two rows with the blue, purple and hot pink matte shades are more like the pressed pigments are the ones that have the most trouble blending, but they are way more pigmented compared to other brands that just end up very chalky. They're not perfect, but they will work with a primer/base.

The formula for the rest of the shades and pigment are very smooth and pleasant to work with, again these are artist eyeshadows which are not as smooth as most retail formulas that are meant to be easy, but that trade-off is worth it to get these bolder pigments to live on the skin longer.
