In my vast collection of eyeshadow palettes, one that I’ve been meaning to show you all is my Morphe 35T palette. Morphe is a brand that lots of beauty gurus on YouTube and Instagram like to rave about, so I was already curious, so when I got the chance to play around with my friend’s palette, I was really excited to see what the fuss was about.
Luckily it lived up to expectations. I was really impressed by the buttery quality of the shadows, and how far even a small sweep of a brush would take the shadow. When I looked into the palettes online and saw that BeautyBay sold them for £22.00, I decided I would treat myself and snapped one up!
This was a good few months back now, and shockingly I’ve never posted about it, other than to use it in makeup looks. It’s been on my blogging to-do list for ages, so I’m glad that I can finally cross it off!
Apparently I’ve decided to swatch them in the most complicated manner possible! So for reference, the order goes from the bottom to the top in the pictures (i.e. elbow to wrist), and from left to right on the palette itself, with the top row being closest to the hinge.
This is the brightest row, and I particularly love the very middle champagne shade. The shimmer shades are far more pigmented, but the first two matte shades are excellent for carving out a bit of definition.
The first shade on the left in the above picture is one of my favourite shades in the whole palette. It’s so shimmery and pigmented, and is a gorgeous duo-tone of green and copper. It doesn’t sound fantastically pretty, but it catches the light wonderfully and is so mermaidy.
I love the selection of warm golds and chocolatey tones in this row; they’re really pretty and pigmented, and super shimmery without looking glittery and tacky. They’re perfect for making a neutral-toned eye look with a bit of extra je ne sais quoi!
These shades are the darkest in the palette and are perfect for creating night-out-esque smokey eyes. The darkest pewtery-charchoaly shade is probably the most impressive in terms of quality. It feels extremely velvety to the touch and blends beautifully with very little fall-out!
Altogether this palette has a lovely selection of warm and cool tones, with plenty of plum and gold shades to keep things colourful! I like to wear plenty of these colours, so this range is absolutely perfect for me and I get absolutely loads of use out of it. Definitely worth the relatively minuscule price tag of £22.00!
