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 intended to have this up Friday but, I forgot >.<.
My plan is to post at least every Mondays and Fridays and sometimes Wednesdays. Check back Monday to see if that happens! Lol
For this look I used the Morphe 18B, Making Bank, palette
This is an 18 pan palette that comes in a cardboard palette and has a mirror. It’s no longer available but it was an $18 palette that I probably purchased on sale.
Overall, I enjoy Morphe eyeshadows. They are a bit on the dry side, you can see how dusty the upper left olive color is, but I find them easy to work with.
I love the way the crease colors blended together with the yellow and olive to lighten up the look but the star is the bottom right color. I applied the color over NYX glitter primer on the inner 2/3rds of my eyelid. It doesn’t look like much in the pan but it has a duochrome finish that shifts color depending on how the light hits it. This look reminded me why I love Morphe shadows so much.
I used my standard Essence Lash Princess mascara and this face trio by Pop Beauty that I got in a Boxycharm pop-up sale. The bronzer and blush look shimmery in the pans but when you apply them they have a nice finish, not shimmery or glittery and it doesn’t emphasize texture.

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.
