“Hi, Sisters” (as would James say it) how are you doing the lovely week. I am having an awesome week so far and I am so excited to review the James Charles Palette. This palette is his first collaboration with Morphe Cosmetics. I have been a fan of James for about a year and a half now and to be honest, I had never heard of him until he was chosen to be the CoverBoy for Covergirl Cosmetics. I know I was pretty late to the fan party but like I said in previous blogs I really didn’t catch the makeup junkie bug until maybe 2 years ago. So I am still finding out about many beauty influencers.
Late last year James came out with this awesome palette for makeup lovers like myself. When he made the announcement/introduction on his YouTube channel, I was quite excited. I was amazed at how beautiful, colorful and versatile this palette was and I really loved the fact that he was extremely involved in the creation process of his palette.
Now I am sure you are asking why has it taken me so long to review this palette? Well, the reason is that I tried 4 times to get my hands on it. Whenever I would find out about a restock it would already be to sold out again. I have never heard of a palette just constantly restocking and selling out multiple times but I finally was able to order it.
It didn’t take long for the palette to arrive and when I opened the package I was so amazed at how this palette looked in person. This palette is like the most beautiful palette that I have seen in a long time. Check out the details below.

I didn’t dive into the palette right away, I actually waited until St. Patrick’s Day to try it out. I was dying to do a colorful green look for that day and can I say it turned out so pretty. I had to pat myself on the back on that one. I also did a pink look a few days later because I wanted to play in the palette a bit more.
As far as the size, the palette is pretty big so I can say its not the best as far as traveling unless you have a makeup bag that it can store it in. In my honest opinion, I would probably not take this palette on any trips unless its a quick road trip. As far as the price, I can say that if you could only afford to buy one eyeshadow palette this would be it. I pretty much haven’t touched my other palette since buying this one. For my budget-conscious consumers, if $39.00 is a bit pricey, you can still purchase this palette in 4 easy interest-free payments of $9.75 through Afterpay which is a great option by the way.
In all, I can only rave about this palette. This palette to me is a great deal for the money. You can create so many looks with this palette to bring out your creative self. I really hope you enjoyed this weeks post and feel free to comment below if you also purchased this palette. You can also ask questions if you a contemplating but haven’t decided quite to make the investment. Again thank you for stopping by and checking me out.
