Eye Shadow -Morphe -35OM - 35 COLOR MATTE NATURE GLOW EYESHADOW PALETTE

I've seen mixed reviews online about Morphe (Brushes) eyeshadows, but I honestly love them. I bought the smaller KathleenLights palette as my first Morphe palette to try out just to see for myself how the pigment/eyeshadows compare to others I've tried (drugstore WnW, CoverGirl, MAC, Too Faced).

I love them, and I love love love this 35OM palette. I sat on the Morphe website for about a week or longer, debating which palette I really wanted to buy (so many pretty pro palettes!). They have a ton, and they all look so beautiful - and I know that everyone and their best friend loves the 35O palette - but I ended up deciding on all matte colors - the 35OM (all matte - warm colors) and then the 35N (all matte - warm). After much consideration, I decided that going with all matte was going to last me more in the long run, and for the price for 35 eyeshadows, I have enough great crease neutral matte colors to never need eyeshadow again. I figured that shimmer/glitter shadows all look pretty in the pan and swatched, but once you apply them to your eyelid - unless they are really unique colors (like emerald green etc..) all the different bronze, browns, golds look the same when they are all shimmery (like in the 35O and the 35OS). I have a few WnW and Covergirl shimmer colors that I think are enough to go with anything and look identical to the shimmers in the 35O/35OS, which is why I didn't choose those. To me, It's the matte shades that are so much more versatile. I want to try every shade in my crease (that isn't skin tone). They are super pigmented, creamy, and I find they do blend well (using eyelid primer) and they do NOT get muddy when layered. I used 2 different browns in my crease this morning, and you could see each one layered, as well as a darker that I put lightly in my outer v. They are STRONG colors and last all day.

*** Shipping info: I ordered all my Morphe palettes direct from the Morphe website. Almost ALL of the horror stories I read online for Morphe palettes getting busted, ruined, etc.. were from sites that didn't ship direct (amazon etc..). If you buy these, I highly recommend buying them direct - because Morphe knows how to ship their products without having them get busted en route. My dad worked for a packaging delivery service for 40 years, so when my Morphe palettes arrived - Morphe did absolutely 100% everything they could to ensure that their makeup arrived in perfect condition.

First, I had them delivered FedEx, which is what they recommend. FedEx handles fragile boxes a bit differently than the general USPS. This is your FIRST #1 priority when deciding to buy these palettes - DO NOT have them delivered via USPS. If you order them via UPS - make sure that your local UPS does not transfer the package to the local USPS to deliver the box residentially - this does happen (and does in my city). To prevent this - choose the preferred delivery by FedEx. They hand deliver and since they are the chosen service by Morphe, FedEx knows Morphe boxes and knows what's inside when transferring them. FedEx may be more pricey than USPS - but trust me - it's worth the $8 shipping if you get your product in perfect condition vs. the horror I've seen (all shadows busted).

The box that held my 2 palettes was the perfect size (two 9x6 inch palettes -bigger ones) -and the box was fitted enough so the palettes wouldn't bump/slide around inside the box; the box was then full of package peanuts so that the palettes were floating inside the box with cushion on all sides, it was marked FRAGILE, and then both palettes were bubble wrapped externally together - and then bubble wrapped individually INSIDE of their boxes.

They were in perfect, pristine condition - not a single one loose, not a single one busted. So, listen to Morphe when they tell you who to ship with - it's worth it. Morphe got a 100% from me.

I also recommend buying Morphe palettes direct because of how many knock-off sites/products are out there trying to sell non-authentic palettes for less money - so if you really want to know how well Morphe shadows do, buy them straight from Morphe, not from Amazon etc.. to make sure you are getting the 100% correct product. I think this may be some of the reason why there are so many mixed reviews about Morphe shadows. Some may not have bought authentic products and don't even know it.

Eye Shadow -Morphe -Kathleenlights Palette

I'm really surprised at the negative reviews I've seen for Morphe Brushes eye shadow palettes on the web. The kathleenlights palette is my first Morphe purchase - and other than the $$$$ shipping that took forever (2 weeks from the date of ordering - that's crazy for $8 FedEx shipping) - I'm super impressed by the palette and the colors.

The shimmer/foil are super pigmented, but when applying some with my fingertip on my lids (the green) I noticed some fall out on my cheeks and I really had to pack the green on my lid to see it. So I may not be a huge fan of their shimmers - but the mattes (on my lids) are dark and amazing and my favorite. I have dry lids, so shimmers accentuate that, but the mattes do not. I could notice that when I used the Morphe neutral colors for my crease, layering browns one over the other to add a bit more depth - I could still see the layers of color - vs. the colors mixing and turning muddy. I use mostly WnW and ELF shadows (some Sephora and Too Faced) but I never knew how muddy my eyeshadow was getting until using the Morphe colors. I love this. I think the palette is cute for a first-time palette, especially since I had no idea how it was going to arrive (mine arrived bubble wrapped in a decent sized box - and not a single shadow was busted or messy) - and to get a feel as to the quality of the shadows from Morphe.

I love the feeling of this palette so much, I'm thinking of ordering a new palette each paycheck because they are cheap, and I love neutrals (so the 35 OM, 35 O, 35 OS, 35 T). I love warm neutrals and the way these shadows blend is great. I'd be set for life if I got those palettes now.

I had never heard of Morphe before I started esthetician school and this one girl was OBSESSED with them and she told all of us about them and how everyone was obsessed with this palette and how hard it was to get. This other girl really wanted it and I saw it was available one day so I hurried up and bought one for both of us. It's almost like I was more excited about the rush of being one to get it instead of the actual palette, which is how they get you in. I honestly don't remember how much I paid for this and shipping, I guess the palette was $20 or less and I think shipping is around $7 unless you spend over $100 or something. Mind you too, this was around October 2015 when the warm color eye trend was just starting, too. Fast forward to now, I think I maybe have used this around 5 times. Idk why, I just never reach for it, maybe because I now have so many other things and there's so many options in here. Plus, there's only a few shimmers and while I like matte and shimmer, I like shimmer a bit more. I know they have the 350 shimmer now but I have never once really been like oh yeah, I want that, I guess I just don't think the shadows themselves are THAT great quality and plus, I don't always want a warm look as I like that every now and then but prefer cool tones on myself most times. Also, I've heard how morphe takes this generic palette and slaps their name on it, and I've seen another brand selling this exact palette before so it just goes to show they just use all the hype to make a ton of money. Stupid. I guess it's cool I have this in my collection and maybe I will try to reach for it a little more and try to use it more, but I would not repurchase again and don't find it a must have. Another thing, the size of the palette is quite big and the pans are about the size of a quarter I believe, so decent. Maybe this is better for someone just starting off and wants to spend a little bit of money for a large range of shades.

Now this palette is just okay. The price isn't insanely bad (~$30 with shipping) but at first I struggled a lot to find inspiration with this palette. I have a few colors I always reach for which makes it hard to utilize all the colors in this palette. It was forgotten for a while until I kept trying to take it out to play with it. Some colors could get patchy and muddy but I think I found a way to fix this. After using a primer, I set it with that cream shade in the upper hand corner all over the lid up to the brow bone and this has significantly helped with the blending of the other eye shadows. I think it's an okay everyday palette for work as the neutrals are decent. The shimmers are insanely pigmented too. But if you're on the fence, don't want to pay for any shipping, or have any other hesitation you're not missing out by skipping on this palette. I think I could still live in peace if I didn't have this palette.

Ok so first of all I live over in the U.K. So shipping was s nightmare I ordered it in early December and it literally took over a month to come . So after getting of to a bad start I opened the palatte thinking it was going to be incredible and worth the shipping cost that I had to pay double the price of the product for , and I payed for express shipping and unless 1 month is express shipping I was pretty disappointed as I'd even tried to cancel my shipment , but the brand ignored my emails . When searching the palatte the shades look looked amazing , but when it came to application they didn't blend out very well on me and are nothing compared to my two faced chocolate bar palatte . The shimmer shades swatch nice , but for me an awful lot of the colours look the same for a palatte which is suppose to have 35 ( presumably different shades ) and on application the shimmers can come off looking not the best .would I buy again ? No I think the shipment and customer service told me enough about this company not to by again however I thought the shades were ok and if you live in the us where shipping isn't an issue go ahead the shades can be ok and blend nice , but it wasn't worth it for me personally .

For the price, it's good! I won't argue with that. But this is not the best quality for eyeshadows by far. I didn't think that I would be able to tell a difference in quality, but I can and that kind of upsets me. The biggest complaint is that they are kind of difficult to blend and the mattes can be patchy on the lid when blended out. It takes more time to work with these shadows than I'd like, but again, the price is right for the amount of product. Compared to Too Faced palettes, makeup geek shadows, Anastasia, and even colourpop (even though they're different), they don't perform nearly as well!

I decided to buy the Morphe 350 palette because I liked the selection of warm tones at a really good price. This is a budget palette with decent quality eye shadows. This is the one palette I would consider buying because I will get a lot of use out of these colors. They are perfect for me.

This is no frills and I have learned that one must be careful when buying from online cosmetic companies. The quality can vary quite a bit and what might be considered a good buy, can sometimes turn out to be something else entirely. In this case, I think the pigment is decent and with primer there is good staying power. I did not experience a lot of fallout, nor did I have to alter my usual order of applying makeup and do eyes first and foundation after. I did my foundation and concealer and then eyeshadow as always. I was surprised by the quality of the pigment. Not all of them are good, some are better than others. But there is enough quality here for me to consider it worth buying.

Jaclyn Hill did a great look with this palette, with the star eyeshadow on the lid being the copper shimmer shade in the bottom right hand corner of the palette. I was able to replicate this look myself. I like the variety of oranges, rusts, coppers, along with a good selection of brown shades. I have gotten a good deal of use out of this pallet with some great transition shades that will work as the base for any look.

I am not averse to a bargain when I feel that that the positives outweigh the negatives. Here is my breakdown of both.

Pros -

A strong and comprehensive selection of warm tones.

Decent pigmentation and wearability with primer.

No real fallout problems.

No chalkiness with matte eyeshadows.

Easy application.

Affordable price

Cons -

Packaging is pretty cheap as expected at this price. No mirror, case is not that well made, serviceable.

Some redundancy in the colors, but I have found this with other palettes at varying prices.


I think this palette would be a great purchase for a beginner who loves a great selection of warm tone eyeshadows and also someone who might be on a budget. I think for the price and the amount of eyeshadows, color selection and decent quality , this could be a good base for many eye looks and could work well with higher end eyeshadows.

I am not going to be stocking up on Morphe palettes any time soon. But to get this selection of my favorite warm tones, this one was worth buying for me.

These colours are so pigmented and blend so nicely. The shimmer colours look absolutely stunning when applied with a finger or wet brush - else they just look like sheer glitter if applied with a dry brush.

The shades are really nice warms and browns, with one side of the palette being mainly reds and oranges. some of the brown colours look slightly more orange-y when being blended onto the eye, than they look in the pan, but thats not a big deal at all.

half of the shades I don't really use that often, because they're not just colours I use often ( i.e. red and orange) so next time I may purchase a different morphe palette with more shades I'd actually use. This isn't a negative though, because the product is still great, and if anything this palette has encouraged me to try make red and orange eye looks work for me

I definitely recommend this, but if you are looking for a cheaper option, try the Crown Brush palettes, they manufacture for morphe so its essentially the same product ( maybe slightly different shades). The packaging is better and you get more product.

This brush is amazing. It felt SUPER scratchy when I first got it, but the more I used it, the softer it became. It's super soft and a delight to touch to the face now. It's great for powder or non precise bronzer application.

Bought this all delighted with the multiple matte shades. I was attracted to the peachy-orangey colors, they are hard to find in a palette and this has several. So, I bought. And it sits. I just don't use it because the colors mud up on me, don't blend well, and are very repetitive on my lid. Matte shouldn't mean dry and powdery, but this is. With and without primers, it just doesn't work for me. I can't blend it out and some of the lighter shades have little to no payoff. I tried to give it to a friend and she didn't want it.
Sorry, I really wanted to love this palette and hit pan with it. Instead it sits, forgotten.

Quality wise, this is probably the worst palette I own....but do I hate it? No, not really.

I'm not really sure why youtubers go batcrap insane over Morphe products when I am 99% sure they are a private label of a very cheap makeup brand. (Crown) Not hating against Crown as they do provide decent products for cheap, but the price you pay is the price you get. It's the same with Morphe. Really cheap flimsy packaging and not the highest quality eyeshadows. But they do assemble some pretty neat colors in their palettes. The color congruity rocks. So many transition shades for every skin tone and at a very affordable price.

Admittedly the colors swatch WAY better than I thought they would, but once applied, they are simply satisfactory. I can get them to look true-to-color with eye primer and a spritz of UD All Nighter on my eyeshadow brush but not everyone wants to do that. Without these extra steps they are not very opaque or pigmented and all end up looking the same even though it appears there are some very unique colors in the palette.

I have my issues with it but at the end of the day it's a great combo of colors for an affordable price. I mostly use it for its transition shades to blend out better eyeshadows I own and it does work well for that since the Morphe colors are blendable/not opaque.

It's huge and most of the colors are so closely related to each other, you can easily find a substitute if you do ever hit pan on one of your favorites. Is it amazing, no, not at all. but it is a good addition to my collection that I have gotten use out of for a very long time and plan on this lasting for the rest of my makeup-loving days. If you want: basic colors to build up a good base, easily blend out other eyeshadows, and a huge palette that probably won't ever run out that you don't have to break the bank over....then here you are. But it's not a high quality mind blowing palette that people hype it up to be.

Eye Shadow -Morphe -Pressed pigment in champagne nights

I saw nikkietutorials mention this in one of her favorites videos and decided to pick it up when I was getting a few things on the website during the Black Friday sale because I wanted to try these pigments. I got it the other day and have worn it today and yesterday. I like it a lot but the main reason I felt the need to write a review is because it's a dupe to something I love! Today when putting it on I realized how similar it looked to Vermeer in the modern renaissance palette. So I took the palette out and put them right next to each other. Vermeer is a little darker in the pan but I swear there's little to no difference on the lids. I'm so excited because I LOVE Vermeer but am afraid to use it because I don't want to run out. Now I don't have to be afraid since I have a huge pan of a similar color that cost about $5. The color itself is a pinky, shimmery champagne color and is gorgeous on the lids with a light brown in the crease. There isn't a lot of pink once it's on me, though. Would be pretty as a browbone highlight probably and I may even try it on my cheekbones as a face highlight like Nikkie did but I'm tanner than she is so I'm not sure how it would look. But I definitely am in love with this, plan on using it often and will definitely repurchase once I run out. I'm also so excited that it's a dupe. If you love Vermeer as much as I do and you're afraid to run out of it then definitely pick this up.
