With spring’s arrival, most of us will be busy cleaning out our dorms, apartments, and houses. If you’re as makeup-obsessed as me, you will also be organizing your makeup collection. With that, you may feel the need to freshen your collection up a bit, and I think a brand new Morphe eyeshadow palette would be the perfect fit for you!
I admit, my love for makeup is a little over the top. But hey, there’s nothing wrong with that! Over the past few months, I have acquired a variety of different eyeshadow palettes from many brands. Top brand palettes such as the Naked collection, Lorac, and, one of my personal favorite brands, Anastasia Beverly Hills can be fairly expensive. So, I decided to try out a much more affordable brand’s eyeshadow palettes, Morphe.
Don’t be fooled by the not so fancy packaging these palettes come in. Although at first glance it looks plain and plasticy, each palette opens to 35 beautiful, vibrant colors. My personal favorite, and one of the most popular of the Morphe palettes, Jaclyn Hill, is full of a wide range of colors, some bold and some more neutral. Out of all the palettes, this one is best for looks for all seasons.

Every color is true to what they look like in the package; vibrant and bold. I, personally enjoy working with darker colors, so I tried out a look using oranges, blacks, and blues. This was the final result.

I was very pleased with how little of the shadow it took on my brush to cover the entire eyelid. Some of the other name brand shadows I have used, like Naked, don’t pick up as easily and arn’t as pigmented, so it often takes much more of the shadow, and sometimes even requires a wet brush. The pigmentation of the Morphe palettes allows buyers to get more bang for their buck.
For those who aren’t a fan of the brighter, bolder colors in the Jaclyn Hill palette, a more subtle palette is the Morphe 35F Fall into Frost palette shown below.

What I like about this palette is that there are so many possibilities for mixing and matching the colors. This palette is also perfect for those that enjoy a little bit of sparkle in their look, as most of the colors have a little bit of shine to them. In my opinion, this is either a hit or miss when it comes to eyeshadow, but Morphe added the perfect amount of sparkle without it being too overwhelming.

I tried out a look with a little bit of olive green, brown, and light gold. I usually go for looks that are a little bit darker; don’t worry, if you aren’t as big of a fan of this type of look as me, with these palettes, it is easy to blend the colors to the shade and intensity you prefer. They’re so versatile!
Overall, I was VERY impressed with the Morphe palettes. The price, amount of product given, and quality of the product is wonderful. My only complaint is the lower quality packaging of the palettes, which doesn’t give the shadows much protection in the case of accidental dropping. If you are looking for a little something to spice up your makeup routine, I highly recommend trying out one of these wonderful palettes.
