Morphe 35O Palette Swatches & Review

| "Smart beauty is about looking your best and feeling your best and never overpaying for it." -Stacy London |

Throughout the autumnal season, my favorite trend in makeup is the array of deep plums and orange tones. Although I regularly prefer working with silver and pink eyeshadows, I think fall is the perfect time to play around with lots of slightly more intense purples, oranges, and browns. A favorite among beauty bloggers is the Morphe 35O Palette, so naturally I decided to try it out and see for myself if the palette lives up to the hype. 

The palette retails at $23, which is definitely on the cheaper side for a palette of 35 shades. I find that unlike most other makeup, eyeshadow is something you need to invest in for the higher quality. When it comes to eyeshadow, it's most likely that the quality and pigmentation is going to get exponentially better with the increase in price, with just a ~few~ exceptions (lookin' at you, Wet N Wild... you rock my world. Keep doing you). 

I am so excited to have found that the norm isn't the case when it comes to Morphe. These shadows are so pigmented, and the variety of vivid colors complement each other perfectly. And the best, best part: the foils and glittery shadows are *incredible*. We all love our pigmented matte shades, but it's so difficult to find quality shimmers that actually show up and add to our makeup looks. Well, look no further - Morphe's got you covered. And yes, I am thrilled. 

I swatched each row of the palette from left to right here: 

I definitely found that the lighter shades weren't as pigmented, but guys, can we appreciate those shimmers? I am in love. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a complete "autumnal" palette -- there are so many shades of oranges and browns that are perfect for experimenting with fall makeup looks. Also, if you're looking for any highly pigmented glitters, Morphe seems to be the place to search. This palette has some gorgeous pink and orange shimmers that I am determined to incorporate into my upcoming makeup looks. (**Side note: on the topic of quality shimmer shadows, I would also recommend both Colourpop and Wet N Wild! Maybe a blog post on my favorites from those brands next? Let me know!)

Hope you enjoyed this little review! Overall, I recommend it for sure. So many beautiful autumnal shades for a great price! You can find the palette here.
