    Currently, via their website, one can purchase the "Strokes of Luxe" brush set replete with 22 brushes for a mere $135. I think "Jokes of Luxe" would be more apropos. (I'm holding back several inappropriate "Strokes" jokes, mind you. Several.)

    Looking how beautiful looks your green jumper on you I think it’s a pity not giving green shadows a chance!!! Maybe a neutral look with a pop of green??? Love your thoughts 😘😘😘

    Not interested in Morphe anything myself. I dont enjoy crazy colors either but I'm 46 and I've always been a less is more, neutrals gal myself.
    So many launches this year have been a hard pass for me. I want quality make up cruelty free and something that doesnt make me look 80 under the eyes hahaha

    Hello, Charlotte; I am loving your makeup look …so polished and pretty
    would you be showing this look?

    You're outstanding. $149 for Morphe brushes I fell out of my chair no matter the quantity – the quality isn't there. I'm with you – I would buy Wayne Goss brushes if I was forced to spend that much on just brushes. I LOVED THIS VIDEO. It was way too short however. It isn't often we get to laugh and make fun of these cosmetic companies and their idiotic ideas. And then other brands knock it out of the park with their packaging. If you are going after the high-end money crowd or idiots like me that will spend $$$$ on quality & packaging you better appeal to my classy side and not the trailer trash side. Cover FX and their bars of soap and that white boxy cheap look? What the hell? Must be a new VP of packaging trying to prove himself/herself and is not up to the task. You're the best.

    I got the CoverFx face palette in my Boxycharm and it's pretty dang good. I love it! The brightener shade is stunning! Although, I get what you mean about the packaging.

    I completely agree with all the products you mentioned, it all just looks MEH, the only product that interests me in the new Charlotte tilbury lovegasm palette which will be my first Charlotte purchase and Jeffrey star setting powder, i love make up and looking into new products but there’s not much that interests me 😩

    This video was wildly entertaining! You had me laughing the whole way through. I am not having the Rivera palette. The colours are too bright for me.

    I agree with you on everything.

    OMG! I was just thinking how amazingly beautiful you look with your new bob haircut! Lol. If you have never thought to do it- woman- you look like a supermodel with a short cut. There's your incentive if you ever feel bothered to go for a new hairstyle.

    I received the cover fx face palette in the boxy charm. And I’m not impressed. The blush doesn’t look as good as others … like No7 or the Balm or even my wet n wild. The hi light isn’t pigmented. But I’m using it for my eyes and here and there.

    Love your makeup in this video- is there a tutorial or listing of the products?

    You look stunning in green!

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    I think greens could look amazing on you. Maybe you and Stephanie Lange should get together and collab on a video so we can see you in those crazy bright colors!

    No on the greens in the Melt palette as shes wearing a very green green sweater on. And you say to not look at the packaging to decided on buying a palette yet bash Cover Fx on their packaging but having tried the product/formula of its contents????

    Funny that I received that Cover Fx palette in a Boxycharm and I used it this morning, is really beautiful and sturdy, big mirror, hard case, products inside also great lol. But again I received it in a box so maybe that’s why I’m more impressed

    The melt smoke sessions palette- I wish so much that i had skipped it too because it has been the bane of my life for the past few weeks and 3 of my friends are having the exact same issues- the shimmers have puffed up in the pan and are falling apart, every day there is more and more pigment creeping out of the palette, when its opened there is an explosion of shimmer its engulfing the palette.
    All 4 of us have our makeup stored correctly and something weird is happening to the formula and from what i have found out on line this is happening to a lot of peoples palettes 🙁 even the youtuber Tarababyz is having he same issue- and this is not a drop in the ocean cheap palette :(((((

    I have Morphe brushes and just don’t like them. Prefer my sigma, zoeva and real techniques brushes.

    I’m over eye palettes, as on average I find I only like 3-4 colours in each one. I therefore bit the bullet and bought a colour pop z palette, picked all the colours I knew I would use and have to say I’m loving their eyeshadows. They go one beautifully x

    I am so with you on that colorful eyeshadow palette by Linda Halberg. Anything with those shades, as pretty as they are in the pan, would be useless to me.

    I really am bored with all this childish make up packaging. I know I am probably quite a lot older than the people they are targeting but I honestly think I would have felt the same in my teens. Perhaps more so then as make up was about trying to look older and more sophisticated.

    I have been eying up that smoke sessions palette though, slightly obsessed with green right now. Not that I do a full on bright colourful eye like Mel Thompson might – I don't have her skill or style, but a bolder colour on part of the lid or under the eye definitely.

    Love the Melt Gemini palette, paid a fortune to import from the US and then realised I didn't own many green clothes despite it being one of my favourite colours. Have got a couple of khaki tops since and they do look great with it… even if I do feel slightly bonkers buying clothes to match a make up palette 🤣🤣.

    You look stunning in your green jumper, but I totally understand the green eye shadow avoidance. I wouldn't know what to do with it, either. I am not REMOTELY interested in any of that Moschino garbage.

    I'm not getting the new Charlotte Tilbury quad, no brushes. Sadly those are the only 2 things that I know I'm not getting. The rest of the stuff I like I'm going to TRY not to get. Great video and you look lovely!

    "Someone had to be drunk when they [designed the Moschino collection]" – couldn't agree more! And no way would I pay 150+ pounds for Morphe brushes, even if the collection is big. I rather invest in a few way better quality brushes, especially since I'm someone who washes her brushes quite often (I breakout if I don't! Boo!) xoxo

    Kara C

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    I couldn't agree more about the Moschino nonsense. Also, I have no time for James Charles and not much more for Morphe.

    Super helpful to see someone posting on logical reasons we don't need all the makeup that is released weekly. Its refreshing in the super consumer buy-buy-buy world the beauty community can be. I agree with everything you said except for the office collection makeup. I think it's super fun! Not beautiful exactly but silly and fun and sometimes that can be a good quality for makeup too. It kinda reminds me of my school days and makes me nostalgic. With that being said I'm not about to spend any of my money on it Haha! But found the images pleasing and cheerful.

    I agree about the CoverFx Palette BUT… it’s my favorite face product at the moment! The contour and finishing powder… ahhh, so beautiful and blendy! Lol The highlighters are a little dark but it’s got this BRILLIANT pan labeled “brightener”. I realized if I hit that after picking up the highlighter, it LIGHTENS it! So I can wear them both! I just love this thing! Maybe I can paint it with glitter or something to make the packaging cuter! 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

    Someone needs to send Charlotte the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette. I think she could rock it! 🧚‍♂️💚

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    Hey lovely, I totally agree with most of the no buys except the huda set I love the minis and don’t really have many just a couple, least I’ll be better off this month with all the fails ha ha I have to wear those binoculars the next few months as I’m buying a new sofa!! Xoxo

    I totally bought the Too Faced Natural Lust bronzer for the packaging! The peacock got me.

    I know what you mean about BAM colorful palettes. They're pretty, sparkly, and all the fun things, but aren't my aesthetic either. I'm a cool neutrals person in general and bright/metallics/glitters don't fit my lifestyle. I'm a graduate student, some classes end at 9pm, and I just can't deal with glitter fallout 😂

    That Lacome eyeshadow palette looks like a grown up version of (anything 😴) Too Faced.

    Kathy Brou

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    I agree on that packaging. Yes it looks so cheap. Packaging does make a difference for me. If I am paying high end, I expect it.

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    The ND Mini Bronze and Glow is so deceiving because it's not a bronzer, it's a blush in a bronze color. Ridiculous! Also, £152 for Morphe brushes?? NO!

    Julia Harris

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    I agree with you on the LH palette. I would be avoiding it like the plague! 😹 I do like the look of the Melt palette 💋xx

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    Now I really need the Lancome palette😎

    (May 16, 2019 - 12:09 pm)

    Thank you for the tip on how to focus on the product rather than the packaging! I’ll most certainly try that one when trying not to buy 😂🙌. Also, I did purchase the Smoke Sessions palette & it’s so beautiful! (Although one of the shades is broken 😭). The shades are also out of my comfort zone too but there’s something about it I just LOVE 🤩. Totally agree with you on the Moschino Collection – so tacky. Really enjoyed this video!!! Xxx
