So, I have a confession to make: I like staring at pretty palettes. I mean, who doesn’t?
Me, I like staring at highlight/contour palettes in particular.
Which is why the minute I got wind of the Morphe 9 Color Highlight/Contour Palette, I knew I had to have it, if only just to stare at it forever.
An order was placed, and two months later (thanks to slow shipping at Morphe), the Morphe 9C palette was MINE!
Mine to stare at, mine to love, mine to perhaps even use.
I’ll be honest, I have yet to use this because I already have too many contour/highlight options for now. But on days when I really need something pretty to look at – quickly – this palette is what I usually opt for.
Since I haven’t used it yet, I can’t do a proper review right now, but if you’re looking for a good quality contour/highlight palette, this one in particular has the following advantages:
- Value for money: you get 9 shades for $22.99, and the net weight is 45 g so essentially, dividing that by 9, you get around 5 g worth of product in each pan. Compare that with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (which I also have) where you get 6 shades, of 3 g each, for $40. Of course, for me, the ABH kit has the huge plus point of having customization/refill options.
- From the few shades I have lightly swatched (and from videos I’ve seen of this product in use), I can tell you the shades are very pigmented and smooth.
- Great variety of colors, especially if you have medium/dark/tan/olive skin tones.
- Multiple finishes in one palette, as these shades range from matte to brightening/glowy. (There’s even an orange corrector shade!)
Hopefully I will come up with a proper review of this palette soon; this post isn’t in any way a promotion of it. I saw Manny MUA use this palette, fell in love, and ordered it on my own, with my own money.
For now, I just wanted to share with you all how pretty it is. 🙂
