Morphe Brushes 35OS Palette Review

I love warm toned eyeshadows! So when the hype about the Morphe palettes – especially the 35O palette – started I definitely wanted to get my hands on them, too. But because the 35O palette always was out of stock I got the 35OS and the 35OM palettes.

What do I think of them? Are these palettes worth the hype? Here are my thoughts.

Product information:

  • It retails for 22.99 $ (morphebrushes.com), or 23.20 € (beautybay.com)
  • It contains of 35 eyeshadows (all shimmers).
  • Net Wt. 56.2 g / 1.98 oz.
  • So all in all you pay about 0.41 $ per gram or 11,61 $ per ounce

Formula:

I really do like the formula of these eyeshadows. Some of them are super foiled and metallic and some of them are ‘normal’ shimmer eyeshadows. The pigemtation of some of them is great and with some of them it’s just okay. But when applying these eyeshadows with your finger or when applying them wet you will get a more intense look. The eyeshadows feel buttery and smooth. All the shades in the palette are easy to use and easy to blend, too.

Pros:

  • Shade range (if you like warm eyeshadows)
  • Affordable price
  • Easy to use and easy to blend
  • Pigmentation of the metallic shades is amazing

Cons:

  • Not all shadows have the same finish. Some are very foiled and metallic and some of them are ‘just’ shimmers
  • The pigmentation ot the shades that are not so metallic is ‘only’ okay (but you can get more intensity when applying them wet or with your finger)
  • This palette only contains shimmers

Final thoughts:

I think this palette is great. I love warm eyeshadows so I love the shade range. A lot of shades in this palette are similar but I still think you get a lot of variety.
I really like the formula of these shadows, too. Easy to apply, not a crazy amount of fall out and easy to blend. I personally just prefer foiled eyeshadows over normal shimmer eyeshadows but I still think I will get a lot of use out of this palette.

So all in all if you like warm toned eyeshadows and if you are in the market for an all shimmer eyeshadow palette I think this might be for you. I would definitely recommend this palette.
I personally probably wouldn’t repurchase this palette and rather go for the original 35O because it has both matte and shimmer eyeshadows.
