The Morphe palettes are so widely hyped on the internet by beauty gurus on both side of the pond, so when a Cult Beauty email popped into my inbox saying that on this rare occasion they were in stock I just had to see what all the fuss was about.
The palette cost me the grand total of £20.71 including postage which for 35 shadows seems too good to be true! I paid for standard delivery and it arrived within two days which is brilliant service from Cult Beauty – of all the online beauty brands I find them by far the best.
So upon arriving – first thing I noticed is the incredibly flimsy packaging – I know, I know – what did I expect for £20 but this is such nasty plastic and I genuinely worry that one accidental slip it would be smashed into smitherines! I also would love a mirror in the lid – which would take this palette to the next level and a great travel companion.
But the important thing – the shadows. I love the wide range of shades, from gorgeous neutrals, stunning purples and classic navy’s. I find the pigmentation of the lighter, matte shadows great, they are maybe a little chalkier than say my Anastasia Beverly Hills shadows but they still blend easily. When this palette is let down is the darker shades, the pigmentation isn’t as strong – which some may like as you can then build them up without going in heavy handed. I also found the sparkle shades a little tricker to work with – they need to be built up and you can get a little fall-out but once they are on the lid they do look gorgeous.
So – is the palette worth it? Yes I think it is, it is super affordable and is a great one to experiment with different looks and I find all the shadows have real lasting power which is a real bonus. They are the quality you would expect for the incredible price, which I think is beyond reasonable. I am now tempted to invest in the warm neutrals palette so I can switch up my looks!
Have you tried the palette – what do you think?
Until next time x
