The rumors are true: Kathleen Lights, beauty YouTuber extraordinaire, is releasing her very first eye shadow palette.
This palette, a collaboration with internet-famous makeup brand Morphe, is shaping up to be HUGE — and it's easy to see why. Morphe has released limited edition palettes and brush sets with some of Instagram's biggest beauty stars — think Patrick Starr and Manny MUA. And Lights has already shown that she's got that golden touch; her highlighter collaboration with Makeup Geek is still one of their all-time best selling products.
So, back to this eye shadow palette. Kathleen took to Snapchat last night to give us an exclusive look at her new baby — and it's basically everything you ever wanted.
We knew something big was coming when Lights shared this picture on Instagram.
"So happy I got to put all my favorite shadows in one place! Some are exclusive to the palette as well!" Kathleen wrote, hinting that she'd be sharing more info — and swatches — on her Snapchat. So dutifully to Snap I went.
Not only did she give us a peek at the exclusive packaging, she also let us know — unofficially — when it launches.
She then swatched all fifteen shades, row by row — and they're truly gorgeous.
The first row contains light neutrals — think shimmery champagne shades, warm mushroom beiges, and metallic bronzes.
The next row has smokier neutral shades.
Think inky browns, shiny penny colors, and (naturally) a burgundy-brown. Because red eyes are so hot right now.
The final row contains the true showstopping shades.
Not only do you have the usable shades — hello, matte gold and black — you also have THAT SUPER SHINY GREEN. Amazing!
Seriously, how amazing are these colors?
This palette looks like it's the perfect combination of wild (green, matte brick) and wearable (shimmery gold, taupe). While some fans have wondered why there weren't more shades of champagne and gold — Lights' signatures — we're basically too busy getting excited to care.
As of right now, I don't know which of these shades are exclusive to Kathleen's palette, and which are part of Morphe's permanent line. I'll update this post as information becomes available.
Sadly, this palette is strictly limited edition — so if you want it, you'll need to grab it IMMEDIATELY.
