If you hadn’t heard already or read my previous post, Morphe is BACK! The UK were left bereft when Morphe pulled themselves from their UK stockists, but fear not as they’re officially back at Cult Beauty. To celebrate the Cult Beauty x Morphe collaboration I was very kindly gifted a selection of the new Morphe launches, one of which was this gorgeous Morphe Lip Gloss which hasn’t left my lips since I got my hands on it and I knew I had to dedicate a post to it! I’ve always been a massive lip gloss fan so I’m thrilled that glosses are having a revival as I’d choose a lipgloss over a lipstick any day.
There are 21 different shades available and the Morphe Lip Glosses are £9 each which I think is pretty good for a lip gloss as high quality as these. I used to adore the Bourjois Effet 3D Lip Glosses but they’ve crept up in price over recent years and are now £7.99 each and they’re a drugstore brand. Although Morphe products are relatively affordable, I don’t feel like the products look or perform that way as their new branding makes everything look more luxurious and considering the Morphe Lip Gloss formula is £1 more, the formula is on par with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Glosses.
The packaging is so sleek with a rectangular clear tube and an angular lid with an engraved ‘M’ on the top. The applicator is a classic doefoot applicator however it has flat sides which makes application so smooth and they mean you can apply the gloss over the top of lipstick without ruining the lipstick underneath. The Morphe Lip Gloss formula is described as being high shine and non-sticky. All of the shades are said to have a buttery formula with sheer to full coverage in both cream and shimmer finishes, and I have the shade Boho.
I’m so impressed with the shade range for a lip gloss and my favourite kind of gloss shades are nudes, pinks, peaches and corals and they work well when worn alone or layered over lipsticks, so Boho couldn’t be a more perfect shade for me. Morphe describe Boho as being a ‘dusty pink’ but I do think it applies a touch peachier on the lips than it looks in the tube but I absolutely love the shade regardless. It’s such an easy shade to wear and I’ve found that it complements any eye makeup look I’ve worn, and I especially enjoy wearing it with the shade ‘Sweet’ within the Morphe 8W Warm Master Blush Palette.
This swatch is just one dip of the gloss and it’s nearly fully opaque with a gorgeous cream finish and delicious sweet scent. I completely agree with Morphe’s claims on the non-sticky formula, it feels balm-like on the lips and this has become my new favourite lip gloss and I cannot recommend the formula enough if you love a comfortable, non-sticky lip gloss which doesn’t wear off quickly on the lips.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried the Morphe Lip Gloss formula? Are you a lipgloss fan? Let me know in the comments below…
