I’m going to be brutally honest. I have never been a fan of Morphe products. Gasp, I know – but I find it hard to wrap my head around buying makeup that is mass-manufactured in China.

After losing nearly my entire collection in a historic flood I’ve been slowly replenishing my makeup stash. Like other makeup consumers, I’ve been steered wrong by beauty influencers on YouTube and wasted a lot of money along the way. I’ve compiled this list to keep my readers from making the same mistakes I have. Some products you will recognize from older posts, while other products may come as a HUGE surprise.

He’s such a doll and wanted to buy me some new makeup, because he knows I love it so much. The problem is, I can’t buy stuff when he’s watching me. It’s like peeing in a public forum, I just can’t do it. I get stage fright. So, instead of being honest when he sweetly picked up the Milk Makeup Shadow Quad and said “this would look pretty on you.” I hesitantly nodded as he dropped it into the Sephora basket. Truth is, I knew better, but sometimes you just gotta take a chance on a long shot. Please continue reading of the full Milk Makeup Shadow Quad Review.
