A makeup lovers dream.
Enough said…I don’t even know how to begin to describe the gorgeousness and quality of this palette! I was introduced to this makeup brand through some Youtube makeup artists , and have purchased a few of their brushes. My sister texted me one morning they were having an online sale on their 350 Shadow palette , and let me tell you… I was SOLD. Not only because of the beautiful and versatile colors but also the prices of these palettes. I mean 22.99$ for 35 shadows?? Um, yes please!! Only I did not order online but went to Morphe Brushes store that is about 20 minutes from where I live in California and purchased 2 different palettes. I couldn’t help it. When I tested and watched these shadows at their store, I knew one palette was not gonna cut it. I have NEVER seen such pigment in other high end palettes I own or have tested out in Sephora and Ulta. The feel of most of their shadows are just velvety, lavishly buttery, smooth, soft and oh so very bendable. Here are swatches starting with the first row and going across.
I have played around with only this palette for now and will review the other one in another post. The 35 T palette is full of 35 perfect taupe shades ranging from half matte and half shimmery/silky shadows. There is like pretty much no fallout especially with the shimmery shadows. You know how you dip your brush into a shimmery shadow and the shadows have so much fallout that it is all up in the air, all over you, and you have to keep on dipping your brush back in over and over just to pick up enough color for it to show? Well, not with these shadows.
I apply the shimmery shadows with my finger to my lids. I noticed that they glide on more smoothly and are more rich in color as opposed to packing the shadow on with a brush. But the matte shadows I have to use a brush to apply and blend. Oh, and also the pigmentation of these colors go up to another level if you use a primer.
For those who are into makeup, and looking for an affordable versatile amazing quality shadow palette, trust me, you will not regret having these shadows in your collection. I am no longer reaching for my high end shadows which also in NO WAY compare to these Morphe shadows. Also, the holiday season is right around the corner and these palettes would be a great and inexpensive gift for the makeup lovers in your life. Let me know down below if you own any Morphe shadows/palettes and what your take is on them or if you are planning on buying one 🙂
