Review: Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette

(Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette from Stuff in Style, P2,020)

Putting on eyeshadow frustrated me for the longest time. It took me years – and countless of YouTube videos – to learn how to apply eye make-up. It took so much prodding to get out of my basic eyelash curler-and-mascara routine. But, here we are now – a stack of palettes later – madly in love with shadows. I actually feel naked without any on. And, I hope the same for you.

Finding a good, fluffy eyeshadow brush is essential. I either use the F&S Large Eyeshadow Brush (P150) I purchased months ago in the drugstore or the Wet n Wild Crease Brush (P180) I hauled along with the palette – plus other brushes from the same collection. Both work perfectly with matte and shimmer eyeshadows.

The Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette is a dream. You can be a beauty rookie, like myself, a professional make-up artist, or a YouTube beauty guru and need this in your collection. It has an amazing range of warm-toned colors with both matte and shimmer shades. You can create a myriad of eye looks for both daytime and nighttime! Some shades are chunkier while others deliver just a subtle radiance. There’s a shade for every occasion, every feeling! The lighter, white shades also double as highlighters, and they are blowing my mind.

The shadows are incredibly buttery yet doesn’t crease – unlike cheaper shadows – even without the use of an eyeshadow primer. They’re easy to apply and blend seamlessly. I find that this works best with MAC Fix Plus to add even more pigmentation. Best of all, it stays on all day!

A downside is the size. It’s so big that it can be overwhelming – especially for beginners. It’s not travel-friendly at all! Some colors also look very similar. But, yes, I do love, love, love it! It’s also unbelievably cheap considering how much you’re getting and how superior the quality is. What a bargain! I do plan on getting another palette and with cool-toned colors this time, for sure.
