Yup – I went there 😉 I had a really good sweet potato when out to eat this weekend and it reminded me that I am a big fan of the sweet potato but I don’t buy them on the regular because I cannot find good ones. They are usually dry and shriveled and baked or boiled they turn out tough. I am on a mission now for succulent sweet potatoes. In other news, my nail is chipped and it is driving me bananas – I cannot get a fill until tomorrow evening and it is just one of those things. I feel so off kilter but I also thought that today was the end of DST and that was a fiasco so I am blaming that. I am hoping to get my life together sometime this week 😛
Recently as a gift I received some items from Morphe and was pretty excited as I have not ever used this brand but I see it all over social media and have definitely been curious. I received one of their warm-toned eye-shadow palettes (people know me so well) and the Deysi Danger Highlight Palette. First of all, Deysi Danger is such a uniquely striking beauty and I would shave my head for a fraction of her skills but I will settle for the palette, I guess! This palette includes 9 decently sized pans in a range of peaches, pinks and yellows. Something that this palette offers that I haven’t seen before are 2 matte shades, I wasn’t terribly excited about this at first but they seriously work like a dream for undereye brightening. I have been using the French Vanilla to set my concealer and it is amazing. I also appreciate that not all of the pans are super shimmery but it does include some bold shades for when you want a strong highlight. With my fair skin I can use every shade without issue. The only shade that I am slightly disappointed in is the lavender that is more pink than lavender on me but still very pretty.
As for the formula, it is very smooth and easy to work with. I am really pleased with the pigment and wear for this price point! To be honest, I have been using just a regular powder brush to apply but it works like a charm. I am not crazy about the packaging, it is just black plastic and I would much rather prefer the cardboard type case similar to the Violet Voss palettes but not a deal breaker. Also, I am wondering if this makes it ideal for artists to carry in a kit but really have no idea.
Overall, I love it and really enjoy having so many shades to play around with and layer at will 😀 You cannot beat the price for this amount of product that is of good quality.
Thanks for stopping by <3
