Transforming the Morphe x Jeffree star eyeshadow palette into my own eyeshadow palette…

Hey my little Brushaflies and welcome back to my blog, Brushafly Mua 🦋 Today’s blog post is about me transforming the Morphe x Jeffree Star eyeshadow palette into my own eyeshadow palette.

So back when I first started to really get into makeup (I’ve always loved makeup but even more so the past few years) I adored Jeffree Star and his channel. I would watch it all the time, and when he brought out products with Morphe I jumped straight at the chance to buy them, or I asked for them as presents. But as you may or may not know Jeffree Star has fallen out of favour in the beauty world due to various reasons, and because of this I don’t want to support him and his brand anymore or showcase his products on my channel. So I have decided to transform this eyeshadow palette into my own version of an eyeshadow palette, one that I personally would like to create if I had my own brand or if I worked with a brand.

Now the Morphe x Jeffree star eyeshadow palette was stunning in its original form and I did love using it, but I wanted it to work more for me. So I literally broke all the eyeshadows and put them aside. Once it was empty I grabbed my rubbing alcohol (or the British version of it surgical spirit) and repressed in the shades I wanted to keep in the order I wanted them in. Then, I decided to destroy some of my other eyeshadow palettes that I don’t use anymore (link to my video – Destroying eyeshadow palettes I no longer use) and then I repressed some of those shades into the palette to create my perfect palette.

Palettes that were harmed in the making of this palette:

  • Kylie cosmetics x Kourt pink palette
  • Manhattan only mini palette
  • W7 Grape Escape palette
  • Jeffree Star cosmetics mini jawbreaker palette
  • Kylie cosmetics eye of the storm palette (which I had previously ruined lol)
  • Revolution pro singles

So, I know in this picture the palette doesn’t look awesome lol but it was still drying from the repressing and the surgical spirit, plus I decided to cover up the packaging and shade names with nail varnish and wallpaper lol. I mean you gotta use what you already have right!!! But below is a pic of it the day after and more dry and looking a bit more perfect.

I like my version of the palette, I decided to do one side mostly pinks, purples and brights, and the other side more neutral. I added in the Glitter shades because although some people don’t like glitter in eyeshadow, I personally love it. One of my favourite eyeshadow palettes is the Tati Beauty Textured Neautrals vol 1 palette, and I adore the glitters in that, so I wanted to create a colourful yet fully usable daily palette with that sort of glitter theme in mind. The outer packaging I covered in some left over dark grey with sparkles wall paper and two photos of my Brushafly logo. I kind of wanted my palette to be similar in style to the Nikkie Tutorials x Beauty bay palette with one side bright and one side more Neutral.

I have yet to swatch and try out the shades, that will be for another video and blog post. But that will come very soon so keep your eyes peeled.

I know for perfection purposes the original version of this palette looked beautiful and perfect and was pressed to perfection. But I had so much fun creating this and I cannot wait to try it out and use it. Plus this is my ideal colour story of perfection lol. A mixture of brights, nudes, metallics, mattes and glitters… All the good things in the makeup life!

Have you ever done something like this, what did you make? How did it turn out? Did you like the end result?

So that is all for today, take care my Brushaflies and speak soon xoxo
