REVIEW: Morphe – The Little Palette by Elena Gant

Hello again! I’m back with another review and this time it’s on some palettes that I recently purchased from Morphe! I’ve been hearing so many good things about Morphe palettes and brushes for so long but I’ve never got around to purchasing any products. Finally, I saw Nikkietutorials snapchat these amazing swatches and I knew I just had to try it out for myself.

I bought two paletttes from The Little Palette range by Elena Gant. There were five palettes in this range but I only purchased two: Coffee Toffee and Copper Popper.

I wanted to get all five but I didn’t think I would get the most use out of all of them except for these two. These palettes retail for $9.99 USD, approximately $13 AUD, which is extremely cheap however, the shipping cost more than the actual palettes itself. My friends and I combined our order of 11 palettes in total, and shipping came to $80 USD.

Was it worth it? Well to a certain extent, yes. The colour pay-off in some shades are beyond what I expected, and with a few others I was fairly disappointed.

Below are my swatches of the two palettes.

As you can see the colours are very warm, and very coppery. The shimmers are very bold, but would suit any skin tone perfectly.

These shades are a lot deeper compared to Copper Popper, with richer browns and more coppery reds. These shades can create a very sultry look.

All the shimmer shades have so much pigment compared to the matte shades, but this doesn’t mean the matte shades aren’t as good. When I swatched them, the colours weren’t as intense as I had hoped, but when I applied it on the face, a little definitely goes a long way! I underestimated how much pigment there was and ended up putting too much. In saying that, there are a few shades that didn’t give a good pay-off at all on skin such as the yellow shade from Copper Popper.

I loved the shades from these two palettes because there were a lot of neutral shades that I felt really suited my skin tone. I must admit, Copper Popper was something out of my comfort zone and I was really reluctant to purchase it but I’m glad I decided to get it.

I tested these palettes on my sister and below is the final result!

I definitely recommend giving these palettes a go as they are very affordable (kind of, depending on where you’re getting it shipped to), and they do give a good colour pay-off once applied. I do see myself perhaps purchasing another two palettes: Coca Mocha and Awesome Blossom. If and when I do, I’ll definitely do another review for you guys!

Let me know if you managed to get your hands on any of these palettes, and if you’d like me to post another look I created with it.
