I was very spoilt over Christmas and received lots of lovely gifts from family and friends and I was extremely lucky to have received the forever lusted over palette that is the Morphe 35F 'Fall into Frost' palette. Even though I definitely didn't need another palette, this is one on it's own and I just had to add it to my collection. I already have the Morphe 35N but it's one of my forgotten-about palettes that has been buried beneath all of the other palettes but it's safe to say, it's now top of the pile along with the newly added 35F.
The Morphe palettes are, as you probably know, very hard to get hold of, with the last batch that Beauty Bay had in stock selling out within 6 hours of being online! With each palette full of 35 beautiful shades, ranging from Neutrals to Purples, earthy Pinks and Gold's, they also come in a selection of finishes including full palettes of Mattes or a mix of both Matte and Shimmer shades.
The 35F is full of amazingly pigmented autumnal shades including burnt oranges, deep burgundy's, browns and lighter creams - it's the perfect palette for Smokey eyes or everyday looks. Including 7 matte shadows and 28 shimmer shades that are all buttery and easy to apply and blend, you couldn't really ask for much more to come from a palette. I have been using my Spectrum Collections brushes to use these shadows and they work perfectly to help apply, pack and blend the shadows out to achieve the look you’re after.
I've worn nearly all of the shadows already ranging from doing dramatic Smokey eyes for evenings out and shimmery bright highlighted eyes for days at work - it's really versatile and will work for anyone and everyone, probably the reason it's still sold out! The value for money that you get from this palette is amazing, averaging out at just 67p per shadow! Every single shade I have swatched has amazing colour payoff, including the matte's and the shimmery shades almost look duo-chrome if you match them with a darker/lighter colour.
I’ve been using this palette everyday, even for work, because the eyeshadows just apply so well and quickly that you can swipe one or two shades across your lid and you’re good to go!
You can see from these few swatches how pigmented all of the shadows are, even the matte shades that wouldn’t seem to come off that well with other brands. This is the second Morphe palette I own and I definitely will be getting more, I’ve got my eyes on the 35O but that might have to wait until payday as January never seems to be a good month for money (or makeup!).
One of the shades I have absolutely been loving are the burnt red shades. There are about 6 Reddy-Purpley toned shades that are all shimmers but have an almighty colour payoff so you really don’t need to use a lot. I think the only thing about this palette that could be improved is that it has a mirror in the lid - it would make it super travel friendly as you’d only need to take this one palette and also, it would make it a lot easier to apply as it is quite a big palette anyway so it takes up hella' lot of room on my dressing table!
I’m now keeping my eyes peeled for the 35O to come back into stock on Beauty Bay and also tempted to try a few other bits from Morphe Brushes too because if everything is as good as this palette, it’s worth trying!
Have you got any of the Morphe palettes?
