The Truth: Morphe Palettes

Morphe Palette eh? Where do I even begin? SO much to say…

First off, I’ve seen so many beauty bloggers and influencers use and rave about the Morphe palette (as I’m sure many of you have…), but is The Morphe Palette really worth the hype?

About a month and a half ago, I purchased the Morphe 35F- FALL INTO FROST eyeshadow palette. There was SO many palettes to choose from… trust me, it was a difficult and stressful decision, to say the least! Am I happy with my purchase? I still feel confused… πŸ˜‰

For a whole $23, you get in return 35 shades. Price wise, you honestly can’t go wrong! But although it may be a good deal in terms of price… is it still REALLY worth it?

When I first swatched the metallic shades, I was shook… WHAT. THE. HELL? SO much pigment? SO buttery? Only $23? Slap me now!!!

Hmm.. what can I compare these shadows to? I would say the consistency of the shadow is almost similar to the ABH palettes. So soft, so pigmented, and so much colour payoff! Interesting… could it be that it is even better than ABH? Why was there no fall out? Simple- this palette is AMAZING!

So it became my go-to for that week. I started with the shades on the bottom of the palette- all matte, for you know… those everyday work days- basic makeup kinda days.

Without priming my eyes, and using the shadows mostly on my crease to contour, and ever so little over my lids, I was a happy camper! Feeling good, you know? I would wear the shadows all day, from 8:30 am- 6pm. When I returned home and saw my reflection in the mirror- I was impressed! Still looking so FRESH!

I slowly transitioned into the metallic shadows- what REALLY surprised me when I had first purchased the palette! The shadow looked SO good and flawless when I had first applied it all over my lid… But all good things come to an end, right? Within 2 hours (give or take), the shadow just kind of disappeared?

You can only imagine my shock when I thought my shadow was on fleek all day, and to find out I only had shadow on my cease… what a HOT MESS!!! Where did it go?

It was a sad realization.

So, is it really worth the hype?

I would 100% suggest using a primer with these shadows!

I think if you are under a budget, and want a wide range of shadows- you should definitely head over to Morphe right now and add one of the palettes to your bag and hit the check out button.

But my recommendation?

Get the ALL MATTE Palette– like the 35OM
