I think it is about time I did a blog post on this and to be honest I am surprised I haven’t yet. For my birthday at the end of last year, my friends Anna, Georgie and Emily got me the Morphe 35OM Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette. Talk about best friends ever!? I was so so happy because I wanted a Morphe Palette so bad as they are all stunning. I actually new secretly that they were getting this for me because Georgie had asked whether I was already possibly getting it, however I was so grateful when they gave it to me. I first saw these palettes on Instagram and they grabbed me because they looked so pretty! Then the whole Morphe Palette obsession happened among beauty bloggers and makeup users and they are now really hard to get hold of because they are so popular.
If you haven’t heard of the Morphe Palettes, they are by a company called Morphe Brushes who do a range of makeup products and brushes and some of their most popular products are their range of eyeshadow palettes. I know there are quite a few different ones all containing 35 eyeshadows in. I think the 35F is a purple and nude palette and you can get them shimmery or matte, but the one I have it the 35OM palette which contains all matte colours. I am a huge lover of matte eyeshadows because I personally feel that when you wear a matte lip (which I do on a daily basis) then a matte eyeshadow can look perfect with it.
What I love about this palette is that you get 35 shades, which are good sizes so you get a lot of product, and you can create endless amounts of looks. This palette is perfect if you love a good smokey eye like me. I have even you all the red shades on making a red smokey eye and I really liked it! Because I have green eyes I felt like it really made them pop. You can also see I have used some of the darker brown colours, they are really good for putting them across your crease or in the outer corners. I like to use some of the tan colours either as a base when I am in a hurry or as a transition shade when I am doing a more detailed look.
These eyeshadows are also really high quality. They are easily the most pigmented eyeshadows I own and even the reds create a bold and bright look. The blend really easily as well so you can create a natural smokey eye. They do have a bit of fall off however it is not as bad as majority of the eyeshadows I own.
I also like that it has a neutral white shade which you can either use in the inner corner to make your eyes seem bigger or as a base before you put colour on to your lids. The packaging is pretty basic compared to some palettes out their but I actually really like it. I am not a big fan of over exaggerated packaging… unless its super pretty… and I think this is simple to draw all the attention to the shadows.
Price wise, they are not that expensive at all. If your from the UK like me, the best place to get them is off is Cult Beauty. The actual Morphe Brushes website don’t ship to the UK so this is your best option. It costs £23.00 which you may think is expensive but if you do the math it actually would only cost £0.66….roughly. But that is amazing! You wouldn’t be able to by a single eyeshadow as good as these for 66p! If that isn’t good value for your money I don’t know what is!
If you haven’t jumped on the Morphe band wagon then I would recommend it because they are really good eyeshadows, much better than some high end ones I own, and all the palettes are simply stunning. I want to get the 35F palette next!
