Morphe Deysi Danger Highlight Palette Review, Swatches: Hey guys, so this whole entire world has come to the conclusion that 2017 is the year of highlighters! I mean name a brand and tell me if it has not already launched a highlighter. Morphe is not a new name and I feel one of the most talked about brand in the USA since its collaboration with almost every American blogger. Hence when Morphe collabed with Deysi Danger to bring out a new highlighter palette, I got super excited. I ordered this palette directly from Morphe’s official website in the USA and have been using it since the day I got it. Today, I am sitting down to review this amazing palette by Morphe and Deysi Danger. So let us explore more about this palette and learn about my experience with it.

In Detail Morphe Deysi Danger Highlight Palette Review, Swatches and My Experience
The outer packaging of the palette is this hologram gold box which looks absolutely stunning. I wish morphe had the actual palette in a hologram packaging – that would have been awesome! On the back of the palette, Deysi Danger has a message for everyone. I have to say, its a very heart warming message. In 5 lines, she was able to show her years of struggle as an artist and yet the down to earth person she is. If you don’t know who Deysi Danger is, search Instagram. 🙂
The actual palette is a classic black morphe palette. The size of the palette is actually pretty big. I didn’t realise how big this is by its photos on social media. In fact, let me show you how big this is. I will place my iPhone 5 with the palette. So you will realise that its actually almost an inch taller than my phone! Its actually the size of Morphe’s blush palette.
At the back, there is a small golden sticker on bottom right side with “DD” written on it. If you didn’t notice below the price title, this palette has 45 g of product which is huge. There are 9 shades in this palette which means each shade is 5 g in quantity
Inside, when you open it, you will notice a plastic sheet sitting on top. Hence, the shades won’t mix in case any one breaks. Also, its always a good idea to not throw away this sheet.
Individual Shade Description of Morphe Deysi Danger Highlight Palette
The shades in the palette have no name to them. So I’ll be naming them arbitrarily with the help of numbers. This will make it easy for us to talk about the shades.
1st Shade – A slightly warm cream shade. Perfectly matte. This is going to give you a perfectly bright under eyes if used as an under eye setting powder.
2nd Shade – A proper banana yellow shade. Again a perfect matte shade. If you use banana shades for baking your makeup, this is going to work great!
3rd Shade – A light coloured beige with significant yellow metallic sheen. I wouldn’t exactly say gold but almost yes a perfect light yellow gold.
4th Shade – This almost looks like skin colour in the pan but on the skin, this applies as a beautiful peachy lavender pink duochrome shade. It’s very unique and very beautiful on the skin. This one is not very reflective.
5th Shade – This is again a pink lavender highlighter. The only difference between this one and the 4th shade is that this one is more metallic. This one reflects more duochrome pink and has reflective metallic effect like the 3rd shade.
6th Shade – Now this is more lavender than pink. Again almost a duochrome shade. Super reflective and metallic.
7th Shade – This one is a really pretty yellow gold highlighter shade. It has super metallic reflections. I guess a gold highlight literally suits all skin tones and hence, every brands needs to have a proper blinding gold highlighter shade. This 7th shade fits into this requirement very well and performs excellent on the skin!
8th Shade – This is a peachy champagne gold shade. Very metallic and reflective. This one again I feel will suit almost all skin tones. My duskier skin beauties will enjoy this shade as that perfect blinding highlight!
9th Shade – This is the darkest shade in the palette. Its a proper bronze metallic highlight. Super reflective and glowy. Beauties with skin tone deeper than MAC NC 50 or NW 45 may pull this off as a highlighter. Otherwise you can use this to achieve a glowy bronzed out look. Also, I have tried it as an eyeshadow topper and it looks amazing!
Please Note: The 3rd shade and the bottom row 7th, 8th and 9th shade have the most blinding effect. The middle row 4th, 5th and 6th shade are lavender pink family and have a duochrome effect rather than a blinding highlight effect.
Texture, Pigmentation, Staying Power
All the shades in the palette feel extremely soft and buttery. Every single shade has excellent pigmentation as well as superb colour pay off. Shades in the middle row have almost a duochrome effect going on. One thing I really want to tell you guys is, you can layer the shades to achieve a more blinding effect or you can just brush a light layer for an everyday subtle glow. Also, you can mix two or more highlight shades to get your own duochrome effect going. There is a shade for everyone in this palette.
There is some small amount of fall out or kick backs in all these shades. However, just make sure to tap the brush slightly to get rid of the extra. Staying power of these highlighters was around 5 hours after which I notice they began to fade slightly. But still very noticeable for about 6-7 hours. I absolutely love how the shades never ever turn patchy.
I normally use a Morphe 510 for my highlights and my brush picks up a good amount of product even on slight swirling. Personally, I have been using the 7th shade topped up with 3rd shade more than any other shades. They basically make you glow from the heavens! In fact, even a sheer brush on the cheeks gives a nice reflective glow.
I totally love this palette and I think Morphe & Deysi Danger have done an amazing job bringing out this highlighter palette. It’s not sold out and you can still purchase it from Morphe. Even if you’re a beginner with makeup, this palette will be totally worth trying for you can achieve different degrees of glow from this palette as well as mix and match shades according to your own desire. For Makeup Artists, this palette is a must have because of its versatility. This palette has a highlight for every skin tone there is!

CONs of Morphe Deysi Danger Highlight Palette
1. Not easily available anywhere in the world except USA.
2. Small amount of fall out while picking up the product on a brush, but you know what just blow on it gently, tap your brush slightly and it will be fine. I mean, its a powder, so its natural it is going to have some fall out.
1. My first advise is to go grab this palette asap before it goes out of stock!
2. Use a fan brush to get a more natural glow. In fact, I personally love using my Morphe 501 or Morphe 510 for a disco ball glowy effect.
3. It’s very easy to get finger print stains on the morphe packaging. So I use a rubbing alcohol to get rid of those prints.
4. Do not throw away the plastic sheet inside. It helps preventing mixing of shades in case there is some powder left on the surface.
