- Cosmetic brand Morphe is releasing a line of concealers that includes very few darker shades.
- The collection has 15 shades and a noticeable gap between the two darkest ones.
- This isn’t the first time the brand has been criticized as not being inclusive enough.
Morphe’s new range of concealers has 15 shades, but hardly any of them appear to accommodate dark skin tones.
The collection debuts on Tuesday and early photos of the collection, Morphe 2 Hide and Peek, have revealed all of the upcoming shades. Some beauty fans have been quick to point out that they’re mostly white or catered to light skin tones.

The concealer line, a collaboration with TikTok creators Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, is already facing scrutiny from members of the beauty community.

Some are wondering why nearly half of the collection caters to light skin tones, calling to attention the “huge tone gap” between the two darkest shades in the line. Others pointed out that the darker shades don’t appear to be designed for different under tones.
As one Redditor in a popular beauty thread wrote, “How can they miss the opportunity for more inclusive dark/red/blue undertones for POC?”
Another commented, “Wow. Look at that jump from 7 to 8. I’m pretty sure several shades were skipped right over.”
