This post is well overdue as I have had the Morphe Pallette for what feels like months after lusting over it for just as long. When I first caught a glimpse of the 35T Taupe palette I knew I needed it because these are all my everyday wear colours. I am pretty
boring neutral when it comes to eyeshadow and you can’t have too many palettes like this can you?!
My first impression when it came through to me was how massive it was. It really is a great size for the price (£19.95) and in all honesty I was expecting the single eyeshadows to be much smaller than they turned out to be. This is perfect because I always tend to find my go-to shades tend to get used up far too quickly. Due to the low price for such a large palette don’t expect great things from the packaging, yes it is cheapish plastic and doesn’t look amazing but it feels secure which is the main thing.
While you can tell it’s not the quality of a high-end brand like Urban Decay for example, the shadows are reasonably buttery, don’t leave a lot of fall out when you apply them and are really pigmented. Sometimes I find with larger palettes they try to cram so much in that the quality isn’t quite there but Morphe really have put everything in. The only negative I’ve found is some of the colours don’t quite come out on my lids the same as they look in the pan (a few come out darker, and some which look burgundy/ purple in the pan come out with a red undertone).
The great thing about a palette this size is the amount I can experiment with the colours and different blends and combinations, plus there are so many options for a smoky eye which is something I’ve never really embraced before as I’m not that great with eyeshadows.
