It’s Thursday and as promised, I have a review on the popular Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette. Morphe was one of the vendors at ICES 2016 and since the line was short I decided to take a look. Instantly, I knew I had to purchase this palette. It’s one of the most talked about palettes and, hello, gorgeous fall colors-how could I walk away without purchasing this?
So, does palette live up to the hype? Keep reading to find out!

Overall I really love this palette as it’s perfect for fall and you get 35 shades for a great price. I gravitate to the orange, warmer browns in this palette and they do not disappoint. I find that most of these shadows have a creamier consistency, making the application and blending process fairly easy. A few of the cooler toned shades and a least one orange shade apply a bit patchy and require a bit more effort into blending. Other than that, most shades have great pigmentation and with a primer, they last all day. The shade selection is great so you really don’t need another palette as you have matte, shimmer and satin colors all in one. A problem that I have with this palette is that practically every shade has major fallout. Whether you’re dipping a brush into a shade or simply swatching, it kicks up a lot of color and can turn into a mess fast if you are not careful. I found that lightly patting the shade instead of swirling helps decrease the amount of product fallout so it’s just something to be mindful of.
Here are swatches of the shades. Since these shades don’t have names, I labelled the rows so you know what row I swatched (e.g. R1 = Row 1).
Row 1 Swatches
Row 2 Swatches
Row 3 Swatches
Row 4 Swatches
Row 5 Swatches
A few shades took about 3 swatches to fully show up on camera but other than that, they’re pretty pigmented.
