Oop The Internet Is Roasting James Charles Over His 'New' Palette Release
James Charles has just dropped a new eyeshadow palette called the Morphe X James Charles Mini Collection but not everyone in his fanbase is totally sold on the idea.
The YouTuber revealed on Sunday that the palette includes the exact same 39 pigmented shades that were in his original Morphe palette but, after "[listening] to the feedback from you sisters,” it’s been made in a smaller form.
MORPHE X JAMES CHARLES MINI COLLECTION 🌈 Launching October 17th I am so excited to finally show you guys our mini palette and eye brush set. It’s the same iconic, pigmented 39 shades, but we listened to the feedback from you sisters last year and made the palette half the size, added a mirror for glamming on the go, and our mini will retail for only $23 when you use code “JAMES” 💸 Our eye brush set contains 13 of my favorite eye brushes to create any look on the go for only $53 with code “JAMES” 💸 This collection isn’t some “crazy new launch that you guys HAVE to go buy” — it’s for my fans and fellow artists who have supported me. 💞🌈
Despite plenty of fans loving the fact that the smaller size makes it more affordable, others are disappointed that it’s taken an entire year for him to come up with the exact same formulas.
One person said: “I don't really have anything again James Charles but can we all admit this shit is just a lazy cash grab likely bc they had some pigments left and decided to half them and smush them into a mini palette.”
So James Charles has released another morphe palette and it is the exact same as the original palette, just smaller. I get it’s better for travelling but it’s literally the same palette. And he’s released another brush set with the palette just with less brushes than the original

Fr tho I don't really have anything again James Charles but can we all admit this shit is just a lazy cash grab likely bc they had some pigments left and decided to half them and smush them into a mini palette to try and make the James x morphe collection relevant again?

Another commenter added: “I get it’s better for travelling but it’s literally the same palette. And he’s released another brush set with the palette just with less brushes than the original.”
James has since responded to the backlash and pointed out that he’s just trying to make his products more accessible: “This collection isn’t some 'crazy new launch that you guys HAVE to go buy'," he wrote. "It’s for my fans and fellow artists who have supported me."
I'm super excited about this mini collection because we got to make improvements that people asked for! If you already have the first one, this isn't some "crazy new palette that you HAVE to go out and buy!" - it's something for my fans and fellow artists. That's all! ☺️

It’s not unheard of for make-up brands to release mini versions of their most popular items, with plenty of commenters being thrilled that James has listened to feedback and taken their funds into account.
