Morphe 35O 35 Colour Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review

Morphe are famous for their eyeshadow palettes. They're highly praised by both professional make-up artists and by everyday folk who see make-up as nothing more than a hobby. I've always been eager to explore Morphe as a brand and thought it was only right that one of my first products from them was a palette.
The 35O in particular is a palette I was lusting after for a while. It's me in a palette, what with it's warm shade range and combination of both mattes and shimmers. It seemed the perfect day to day palette and something I would get a lot of use out of.

The 35O contains 35 shadows, perfect for creating nude looks. The shadows range from rich chocolate browns to shimmery champagnes, from rusty oranges to sparkling golds and from peachy nudes to beige hues, all ideal for anyone who enjoys wearing neutral colours.
However, don't let the warm tones of this palette dissuade you as it isn't just a Summer palette. The deep browns and ivory shades can be used during the cooler months to create beautiful, smoky, Autumn eyes.

The pigmentation of these shadows is faultless. One swipe of your brush is all it takes to completely coat your lid. Even the shimmery shades are highly pigmented, which is rare. For deeper intensity, though, adding water or setting spray to your brush before dipping it into the palette works wonders. With super pigmented eyeshadows, you may sometimes find them difficult to blend but I have no issues with blending the shadows from the 35O, if anything, they blend like butter. Each shade can be applied lightly for a soft finish or built up to create a deeper look then blended out for a smoky eye. The colours don't fade or crease throughout the day, either, something which I sometimes find. I've had many issues with eyeshadows in the past. I spend all day thinking my eyes look great and have a heart attack when I look in the mirror when I get home. "Was my eyeshadow this smudged and creased all day?" I think, "Why didn't anyone tell me?" But never fear, these Morphe shades are still as vibrant at 7pm as they were at 7am so you can get on with your day as normal without having fret about your appearance.

This palette retails for a shocking £22.50, which is cheap as chips compared to some eyeshadow palettes on the market today. Beauty addicts often don't hesitate when it comes to paying £50 for a good quality eyeshadow palette, however, you don't always have to spend your life's savings on a palette. Sometimes, the less expensive options give the best results. Morphe probably don't need to give their products hefty price tags, seeing as though they're such an established brand anyway, but it's always nice to be able to buy decent make-up for a decent price. This palette contains 35 shades, too, meaning you aren't even paying £1 per shade and wouldn't struggle to find a palette which costs a lot more but contains a lot less.

The packaging of the 35O is simple but what's on the inside is what counts. Don't let the sleek black exterior fool you into believing this palette is boring as, once you open it up, you'll be pleasantly surprised by a palette bursting with life. I was overwhelmed when I first used mine. I had a sudden adrenaline rush and felt the urge to shove all 35 shades onto my eyes at once...I didn't, don't worry.
This palette is ideal for travelling as it has every shade you could possibly need inside of it. It's rather big but, with 35 shades inside, I'm not complaining. I guess the only con of the product would be that there isn't a mirror inside. If this huge palette had a huge mirror too, I would've felt as though I had died and gone to make-up Heaven.

In conclusion, after getting my hands on this palette, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm ever going to use any other eyeshadow palette ever again. It met and exceeded my high expectations and it's clear why it has taken the world by storm. The 35O is a beautiful and affordable creation. I'm so happy that Morphe is now more accessible as a brand for those living overseas, thanks to websites such as Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty.

Do you own and Morphe palettes? Do you love them as much as I love mine? <3

Love, Emily :) xx
