Morphe continues to hold a special place in my heart as the first eyeshadow brand I used.
I’ve only kept four eyeshadow palettes, which is still probably three too many, and I try to make it a point to take these out every now and then.
Tonight I decided to dip into 35C to play with some colors
The mattes in this palette are amazing. They blend well, wear well and have nice pigmentation. Some of the shimmers/metallics are also gorgeous. They’re super buttery and have great pigmentation. Some of the shimmer/metallic are a little powdery and lackluster.
Here is an example of both:
In the left I used Harper, a nice, chocolatey, bronze metallic that goes on smoothly with great opacity in one swipe.
On the right side, I used Sydney. This is a firetruck red with a sheen finish. It’s probably not actually “firetruck” red but for some reason it reminds me of firetrucks from childhood books so, that’s what I’m calling it.
Which look do you prefer?
Who else sits around randomly using makeup just to play with it? Its my favorite thing to do late at night when I should be sleeping, lol.
I told myself I didn’t need or want this palette but here we are.
I personally love most of Morphe’s palettes and this one is no exception. Even though it is much cooler toned than I’m used to, I still find this easy to use and combine colors with.

How do you feel about Morphe palettes? Do you have this one?
My goal for the year is to hit pan on at least three shades in my Morphe 25B, which is one of the first Morphe palettes I ever bought. I’m keeping it out and with me to use even just for transition shades but honestly this palette is great on its own! I used Pat McGrath Flesh 3 lipstick and while I love the color I am super disappointed in the product. I bought the three mini set and this one came broken at the base. The product also seems a bit dry when applying but as you apply the color becomes creamier.Eyes: #1 in the crease to brow bone #2 lower in the crease to deepen #3 outer 1/3 of lid and slightly into crease #4 on middle 1/3 of lid #5 on inner 1/3 of life Blend #3, #4 and #5 along seems Lower lash use #1, #2 and #3
