Morphe High Impact Highlighter

30th September 2018

Did you know that Morphe is BACK at Cult Beauty?! Read all about it here, but I’ve had the pleasure of testing some of Morphe’s newest products all of which are now available on Cult Beauty which is very exciting. The Morphe High Impact Highlighter is available in a total of six shades and is £14 for 8 grams of product, and I have the shade Lit which Morphe describe as being a ‘glistening iced gold’.

A killer highlight leaves us with all the feels. Our High Impact Highlighters truly live up to their name. These daringly creamy, zero-gravity highlighters create explosive, prismatic effects so you can glow all out. Available in 6 dynamite shades.

The old style Morphe packaging used to be quite underwhelming and dare I say it, a little cheap but the Morphe rebranding has seriously upped their game. The box alone is matte with a shiny paint stroke effect across the top and is colour coordinated to match the shade of the highlighter inside. The packaging is so sleek with a matte black squared compact with a decent mirror within the lid. The packaging isn’t as luxurious as the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors but they’re £30 each for 8 grams, so it’s amazing the different shades of the Morphe High Impact Highlighter are £14 for 8 grams.

The Morphe High Impact Highlighter in ‘Lit’ is a warm toned pale gold which is totally out of my comfort zone as I tend to prefer cooler toned highlighters but it is seriously beautiful. I like to apply my powder highlighters with the Zoeva Fan Brush, and Lit applies beautifully with a fan brush for a subtle sheen to the skin but can easily be built up when applied with the Lime Crime Pointed Blush Brush or Zoeva Luxe Highlight Brush.

From swatches I’ve seen online, Lit looks so so similar to the Becca Vanilla Quartz shade of the Shimmering Skin Perfectors. It is definitely a blinding highlighter shade and not for the faint-hearted, but it can be made further intense when applied with a setting spray.

I like how diverse the six shades are as there really is a shade for everyone including those with deep skintones, and Stardust would suit the fairest of skintones too. I think Morphe do a great job at creating affordable yet high quality products, especially when you consider the L’Oreal La Vie En Glow Highlighter Palette is £12.99 for four shades and the Morphe High Impact Highlighter has a far superior formula and it looks and feels a lot more luxe. I can’t wait to try more from the Morphe complexion range as I’ve been so impressed by this highlighter and the 8W Warm Master Blush Palette.

Have you tried anything from Morphe since their rebrand? What’s your favourite Morphe product?
