Lately, we’ve been feeling like we’re just living in Jeffree Star’s world. The Makeup Guru and big-time beauty mogul have kept us waiting this year with a long list of makeup launches.
If you’re unfamiliar with his collections, know that he has a complete host of palettes, powders, and lipsticks to play with. Which is why it’s surprising that he decided to drop a new palette – This time not from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, but a collaboration with cult makeup brand Morphe.
The Morphe X Jeffree Star Artistry Palette has 30-pan and housed in bright pink, Jeffree talked about the palette in his latest reveal video.
“There’s not one shade in Jeffree Star Cosmetics that is in this palette. Every single shade is different than anything I’ve done in my brand. It’s all custom. The formula is beautiful.”
There are plenty of pinks, few gilded glitters in Jeffree style, and two greens are thrown in for good measure. He goes through every shade in the video below, swatching them on his hand. The pigments are coming in HOT. Fantastic color payoff, strongly vibrant shades – to be honest, we’re drooling just watching the powders go on.
But many fans were left confused about the collaboration with Morphe when his own brand’s eyeshadow palettes are so famous.
A fan wrote:
“Don’t see the point of him doing an eyeshadow palette with another brand. His brand eyeshadow is GREAT! Morphe’s on the other hand…are not!”
While another agreed.
“The palette is really cute, but if I had to buy a palette from Jeffree it would be from his own brand! Just because his ideas for JSC are more unique and innovative!”
And some asked whether the quality of this palette would be the same quality of his brand.
“Why does he keep collabing with Morphe when he has his brand which is very successful and so much better quality-wise…”
Jeffree explained In a video posted on his YouTube channel that he decided to collaborate on a palette with Morphe because it’s the only way to produce affordable products for his fans.
“I wanted to bring the Jeffree Star experience to a different price point and I could never do this unless I collabed with another brand,” he said.
The palette isn’t the only thing to get excited about, Jeffree went on to start his new Jeffree Star Morphe Set and Refresh Starberry Mist – an edited version of Morphe’s iconic formula. Contained in bright pink packaging, it comes in a fresh strawberry scent and claims to be even more moisturizing than the original.
“The original Morphe spray is $16, mine is only two dollars more at $18,” Jeffree revealed.
“In my mist, the ingredients are a little bit more special. They have a little bit more magic. It’s a very hydrating formula infused with glycerin and vitamin E, and it makes your skin feel so good. It has very conditioning ingredients, and it is amazing.”
Finally, he presented the new tools: the Beauty Sponge Trio and the Morphe Jeffree Star Eye Brush Collection.
“The Beauty Sponge Trio, we redid the packaging – we’re bringing them back, they did so well this year, and I love these, I use them every day.. they’re good for everything. The brushes are open stock so that you can buy them individually, too,” said Jeffree.
All the products will be available to purchase on the 13th of August online at morphe.com.
