Not to long ago a photo was leaked of a possible collaboration between YouTuber Kathleen Lights and makeup brand Morphe. People didn’t know many details like when it would come out or how much it would but a lot of people were talking about it. Not long after that Kathleen Lights announced on her channel that she would be releasing a palette with Morphe the next day at 10am PST, that it would be limited edition, and that it would sale for $14.99. To tell you how excited I was for this release, we were in the car on the way home and happened to stop at a stop sign at 12:59pm our time. We continued to sit at the stop sign until after I had completed the order just to make sure that we didn’t lose the signal during the process! Here are my thoughts on the Morphe x Kathleen Lights Palette with Swatches!
Morphe x Kathleen Lights Palette Packaging
Let’s start of talking about the Morphe x Kathleen Lights Palette by talking about the packaging as that’s the first thing you see. The Morphe x Kathleen Lights Palette is a short rectangular palette that comes in a box with an actual design on it. You can see in the photo above that the regular Morphe palettes, a.k.a. as the 35_ palettes, are larger and the outer packaging is more plain than what the Morphe x Kathlee Lights Palette is. Moving onto the packaging of the actual palette. The Morphe 35 palettes all have a plastic casing, with a hard to open closure, that just says Morphe and no other distinguishing marks. You actually tell each palette apart by looking on the back for a little sticker and if that falls off you’re screwed! The Morphe x Kathleen Lights Palette has a cardboard packaging with a magnetic closure and the outside says Morphe x KathleenLights.
Now that we’ve talked about the outside of the Morphe x Kathleen Lights palette, let’s move onto the inside of the palette. As I mentioned before the Morphe 35’s come in a plastic case while the Morphe x Kathleen Lights palettes comes in a cardboard case. Here are a few of the other comparisons between the two palettes:
|Morphe 35 Palette||Morphe x Kathleen Lights|
|Dimensions||9 x 6 x ½||7 ¼ x 4 ¼ x ½|
|Number of Pans||35||15|
|Depth of Pans||2 ½ inch||1 inch|
The Morphe x Kathleen Lights palette comes with a mix of matte and shimmer shades with several of the shades being custom designed by Kathleen herself. Swatches of each row are below!

Overall I really love the Morphe x Kathleen Lights palette. I think the colors are good for both day-to-day but also have pops of color that can liven up a look. From there I really like that the cover the packaging tells me what the palette is and that it has the magnetic closure. If this wasn’t already sold out I’d tell you to RUN not walk to get this palette. However, Morphe recently announced that they WILL BE RESTOCKING the Morphe x Kathleen Lights Palette, so make sure to follow me on my social media so you’ll know when that happens!
