This Christmas, I was lucky enough to be gifted the Morphe Brushes Palette 35T by my sister. We’re both obsessed with makeup (you can catch up on her makeup blog here), so when I unwrapped her present on Christmas morning I couldn’t have been happier to finally try out the eyeshadow palette I’d been swooning over on Pinterest. Now I’ve finally got to grips with the 35 eyeshadow shades, I thought it was the perfect time to do a Morphe Brushes Eyeshadow Palette 35T review…
- When I first opened this palette I was so impressed. Visually it’s stunning; 35 shades ranging from golden brown to mulberry and bronze. Whoever had the job of selecting the colours for this palette is a genius. They’re so cohesive; with undertones of pink and orange it’s beyond easy to mix and match the shades to create an eyeshadow look. Plus there’s a good balance of matte and shimmery tones making it super versatile for simple day looks or something a little more sparkly and special.
- One of my favourite things about the Morphe Brushes Palette 35T is the wide range of golden bronze eyeshadows. I love gold eyeshadow, it’s my absolute favourite look for summer. I’ll never get bored of a sleek low bun, golden eyes, bronzed skin and Ruby Woo lips. From a deep matte terracotta to a shimmering molten gold, the range of bronze eyeshadows in this palette is impressive.
- On first glance this palette looks quite dark. But once the eyeshadows are applied, they really come to life. They’re far more wearable than you might first think. Somehow softer, although they remain super pigmented. There’s such minimal fall-out too. So no messy under-eye clean ups once you’re done.
- The one niggle I have about this palette is that there is no ‘base’ colour. I really like to start with a more neutral colour on my eyelids before applying a more vibrant colour and because there are none in this palette, it means I’ll have to bring along my Naked Basics palette (the best neutral palette in my humble opinion!) whenever I do go on the road! Not that it’s the end of the world, but when you’re only taking hand luggage, every nook and cranny in that small case counts. For me, just one of two neutral base tones would have gone a long way, but I know a lot of the other palettes do include a few lighter base colours.
- What I love most about this palette is its blendability. I really rushed this application, buffing on whatever colours took my fancy. At one point, I was concerned. I’d pretty much slapped it all on here and there, but my favourite blending brush buffed it out and made it look incredible (unfortunately these photos just don’t do it justice).
Morphe Brushes Palette 35T Verdict
For me, this palette is perfect for eyeshadow novices and pro’s alike. It’s impossible to go wrong; all of the shades work seamlessly together, so no matter what ones you go for you’re sure to create a beautiful look. It’s super wearable colours are so flattering too. Being somewhat pale at the moment, I thought these shades might wash me out, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. The undertones are simply stunning and look even better on than they do in the palette.
Oh and did I mention the price? Morphe Brushes palettes are notoriously good value at under £25 per palette. Compared to other palettes on the market (and I have a fair few!) I can’t get over the brilliant quality and price of these palettes. I’m completely sold. The Morphe Brushes Palette 35F is next on the wish list!
Until next time
