Eye Shadow -Morphe -350 Palette

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

on 12/8/2016 11:48:00 AM

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.

I'll spare a long review and just tell you the positives and negatives of this palette.
Positives: affordable, good colour range, very pigmented.
Negatives: can be difficult to blend, at the end of the day the colours all look the same on your eye, isn't long wearing.
Conclusion: an alright palette.
Dupes/Affordable Dupes: Colourpop's eyeshadows or MakeupGeek.

So I fell for yet another overhyped social media brand.. At least I didn't shell out for a palette! I bought the shades Helena and Date Night. They're both bigger pans of 3.6g/0.12oz that won't fit in Morphe's magnetic palettes (a detail that I completely missed). Date Night is a pink shimmer shade, while Helena is more of a brown/bronze shimmer shade. Both shadows feel quite butter-y to the touch, and finger swatches (which, if you've noticed, is basically all that youtubers are showing) come out really pigmented. When you go to apply them with a brush, however, the pigmentation is significantly lower. Even patting it on with a finger to build up intensity is problematic, as I find the formula to be quite crease prone, especially when applied in a thicker layer.

With a little work you can definitely create a nice eyelook with these shadows. For 30 minutes. The problem is that the shadows will fade terribly. They're just not long-lasting in the slightest.

Morphe doesn't have many retailers in Sweden yet, and the prices on the few sites that does sell the brand are not much lower than Makeup Geek Shadows. If, for one reason or another, you're choosing between the two brands, then always, always go with Makeup Geek. I only have myself to blame for jumping on the band-wagon without doing some research first, but I do regret those purchases, even though it luckily was only these two shadows.

+ Supposedly cruelty free (more on that below)
+ Pretty cheap

- Severely lacking in quality
- Fades to more or less nothing through the day
- Soon becomes muddy-looking
- Talc as first ingredient, which can be a problem with sensitive eyes, which I myself have. There's also parabens in there. Reviewer down below with greater knowledge of ingredients than me (I'm sure) also identified other irritants.
- Social media brand that are buying 90% of their publicity
- Private labeling - they don't have their own formulations or products. You're paying for the brand name, even though the brand name in itself isn't very high profile. Also makes me wonder if they have any insight into the production and the ingredients at all, and if they can actually guarantee cruelty free products

Eye Shadow -Morphe -Kathleenlights Palette

This was my first time trying out Morphe eyeshadows and I am quite impressed. I've had this palette for about a month now and I've tested out all the shadows on my eyes except I think 3 of them.

The quality of these shadows far exceeds their price point. They're all very soft and creamy, and SUPER pigmented with just small dab of my brush. The sea foam green color is actually a little too soft and breaks up easily, so be gentle with it. These shadows are like butter and they blend out really well for me with minimal effort. This palette is a joy to work with, in my opinion. They're actually some of the nicest eyeshadows I own, definitely on par and in some cases better than my Too Faced, Urban Decay, and Lorac shadows.

I love it because the color selection is actually pretty unique compared to most palettes being released these days. It's been my go to recently because I can do so many looks with it. You can do a bold, eclectic eye look with this palette or a simple, more neutral every day look. Plenty of the colors don't look like other colors I already own, which is a huge plus for me. This palette has a few custom colors (I believe 6 out of the 15 colors) created by Kathleen solely for this release, and those colors are some of my favorites so buying it was definitely worth it for me. The other colors are either available as single Morphe shadows or in other palettes of theirs.

If you missed it the first time it's being re-released in December!

I do like this pallet as it has great use for everyday general wear, however it doesn't really last that long on me & I would never use it for a night out or when I need it to give lasting deep colour. It certainly is no Too Face Chocolate pallet.

The colour range is great, but the colours look completely different on then they do in the pan? This isn't necessarily a bad thing though because the colour still rocks.

Things that annoy me:

-Lots of fall out
-The pallet itself is very flimsy, thin and feels cheap & nasty
- Thin pans. Yes they are quite large & round but depth wise they are barley there

Other than that I do like this pallet but I would certainly not consider it high end. It's good for the price & I would purchase again.

The single eyeshadow are hit and miss just like the ones in the palettes. They have some fallout, pigmentation is ok. The shimmer shades have better payoff when applied with the fingers. My main problem is with the ingredients. They are not very safe. Will be looking to try better quality makeup even if it's pricier.

I can't believe that this palette only has one review and it's not a very helpful one! I know Morphe is a private labeled and they buy from another larger company and just slap their logo on the products but a lot of companies do that now! What I do like about Morphe is they have very good prices and the eyeshadow palettes are super pigmented. I have been buying off of them for the past year and own 5 eyeshadow palettes (one of them being the 35O) and the new highlighter palette.

I'm reviewing the 35O palette now! Everyone should own this palette! The layout of colors are absolutely amazing and very buttery and super pigmented. You get a range of eyeshadow finishes from matte, satin, foiled and metallic. The colors selection is perfect for that everyday go to nutral or natural look. With a good primer (I use the Urban Decay primer potion) the eyeshadowsame will last the entire day (up to 12 hours). They blend very easy and can be used from beginner to expert. They are perfect for a makeup artist who need a bigger palette with a good amount of colors to choose from. I'm not a makeup artist I'm just a huge makeup fan and collector! I have bought many high end brands and Morphe is just as good if not better then some of my higher end palettes. The packaging is very sleek and nice nothing over the top fancy but not absolutely bad either! The insert the holds the eyeshadowsame is just a plain black plastic piece and I have heard of the eyeshadows falling out but I own 5 of the eyeshadow palettes and use them regularly and not one of my eyeshadows have ever fallen out. Shipping with Morphe Morphe can get somewhat expensive but I have also paid higher with other companies and not get replacement palettes that arrive broken. They do have the option to ship FedEx so if you do get a broken palette more then likely it will get replaced. I had this problem with my 35P palette and it was replaced with no problem at all. Customer service was very helpful and friendly and got my new palette to me the following week. Also with Morphe shipping is free with orders $100 and over! In my opinion I highly recommend Morphe and their products and I enjoy every purchase I make! Try it for yourself and see what you think about them! I would love to hear other opinions!

This product is very affordable and gives you a ton of options. It's pretty pigmented but I have a little problem blending these. It takes a little more work than what I'm used to, but you can make a lot of amazing looks from this palette. It's a pretty good bargain.


Eye Shadow -Morphe -35 F-Fall into Frost

Girls (guys) seriously...I went out on a limb with this one. I kept seeing reviews for it on YouTube. Of course, I immediately dismissed it because I hate how bloggers get free stuff to review AND a coupon code to help them earn money off it if you order it. I'm not sure if it is marketing genius or what. Maybe I'm just a grumpy lady. On to the review...

THIS IS SO GORGEOUS!!! I haven't done many looks YET but I did swatch it all on my arm and the colors are amazing. I like shimmer. I feel like it is soft and glowy and I'm all about the glow. The bottom row is matte so you have your base colors. I did not swatch them with my finger. I put primer on my arm and swatched them with a brush...check out my picture!!! Trust me the picture doesn't do it justice but online swatches do. The hype is real and for 22.99 before coupon, I am very pleased. I guess you could say that if you are a fan of WetnWild shadows, you will love these. The packaging is kind of WetnWild too. Basic but holds the stuff...

The color payoff on these palettes is pretty great. I will say they're harder to blend than I'm used to. They'll eventually soften up, but it takes some work. Also the fallout means I've had to rework my order of application. I have to do eyes first and then put anything on my face, because I end up needing to clean up under my eyes so much that I end up just redoing my foundation all together. Ultimately, the price and color options make it worth it for me. But I wouldn't grab this palette if I'm in a hurry or wanting something quick.

LIKE: Great that there are stores that have these eyeshadows to build your palette in person, unlike Coastal Scents!
LIKE: Great shades! Grays, Taupes, Shimmers, etc
DO NOT LIKE: Both regular and premium shadows contain the ingredient Ethylhexyl Palmitate -- a known irritant to the EYES and SKIN. See: https://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ingredient/702348/ETHYLHEXYL_PALMITATE/

NOTE: I am going through all my existing cosmetics and replacing everything with "known irritants" --- no, I am not a hippy, I am a Biologist thank you very much. I not purchasing anything science shows will hurt me. Makeup companies MUST show us greater respect!


Eye Shadow -Morphe -35W (Warm) Eyeshadow Palette

on 9/9/2016 11:44:00 PM

It's 35 neutral warm colors for about $20USD in a single palette. I know Morphe makes brushes that make up bloggers all seem to rave about but wasn't sure what to expect from their eye shadows especially at their price point.

Here's the deal you need to use an eyeshadow base for these colors to actually pop and stay on. There is a good range of colors here that would work for daytime and nighttime looks. My only issue is that the shimmery shades and highlight shades don't really show up. I need to use a heavier hand to really get the shimmery shades on the lid. The shadows are smooth but a little on the dryer side, IMO. With an eyeshadow base the colors last all day.

The palette comes in a flimsy plastic case. There's no luxury here for 20 bucks! The case and eye shadows look like it would not survive a fall so be careful to not drop it.

If the palette has colors you're missing give it a try! Don't forget to use a base.
