This week’s blog is a review of the Morphe 35OM eyeshadow palette. I will be discussing the following:
- Product Description,
- Price and
- My opinion of the palette.
- Product Description
Morphe describes the palettes as: “The ever-popular 35O palette gets a twist in this all-matte version with the warm neutrals you love and creamy, highly pigmented shades that blend perfectly together. Matte shadows work just as well in the office as they do for a night on the town, making this palette a go-to for any situation.”
Just to explain quickly the 35O palette was released first and has a mixture of 35 shimmer and matte shades, then Morphe brought out the 35OM which has 35 matte shades and 35OS which has the same 35 shades as the 35OM but are all shimmers not matte.
In my opinion the colour selection in the palette should be a part of the description. Seeing as there wasn’t I shall give my version of one, there are a variety of mattes shades to choose from, whites, beiges, light browns, medium browns, dark browns, light oranges, medium oranges and dark oranges.
A picture of the palette.
Morphe packaging is simplistic but sleek. The outer packaging is just a black cardboard box with the brand name and website on the front and the only other information on the box is the list of ingredients, that it was made in China, the net weight which is 56.2g/ 1.98oz and the bar code which also states which palette it is. Inside the box is bubble wrap to protect the palette.
The palettes packaging is black slim plastic that opens upwards and does not contain a mirror. The only information on the packaging is the brand name on the front, which is in lettering that is slightly raised from the palette and on the back, is a small circular silver sticker which states the palette. There is also a clear plastic overlay to put on top of the shadows.
I bought my palette from Cult Beauty which is an English website and paid £23.50 for it. Currently the palette is out of stock on the website but you can join the waiting list and then you will be emailed when it is back in stock.
Beauty Bay is another English based website that sells Morphe products. The palette is not showing on their website which means it is currently out of stock, so I could not check what price they sell the palette for. However, if you keep an eye on their social media they should post when it is restocked.
Here is a look I created using mainly the Morphe 35OM and a shadow from Morphe 35OS palette o the centre of my lid.
- My opinion of the palette:
I love it, I use it for so many looks. I completely agree with the product description the shades are highly pigmented and blend beautifully. They swatch and appear on the eye as they do in the pan. Now I will admit I have not used any of the oranges yet but I plan to.
My most used shade would probably be the one in the top left hand corner, it is very similar to my skin tone so I use it to set my eyeshadow primer Mac Pro Long Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.
The amount of different looks you can create with this palette is limitless. I have used the palette with shadows from Mac, Urban Decay and Anastasia Beverly Hills and Inglot Pigments have never had an issue blending them.
I also think that the price of the palette is fantastic especially when you consider that the Urban Decay Naked palettes only have 12 shadows and cost €47.50 in Debenhams.
There is only one factor about the palette I dislike and that is that the shadows are not named and this makes saying what shadows you used to create a look awkward.
Here is a collage of the swatches I did of the eyeshadows on my arm. I swatched the rows from top to bottom and each rows from left to right. The top left picture is the top row, the first three shadows are not that clear because they are very similar to my skin tone. The top right photo is the second row and once again some of the shadows are not that visible due to the fact they are similar to my complexion. The middle photo is the third row. The bottom left photo is the fourth row and the bottom right picture is the last row.
I’d love to hear any thoughts you have on my blog, and if you have used the Morphe 35OM palette please let me know your opinion of it in the comments!
