When I was at IMATS last year, I decided to welcome a little Morphe into my life. Say hello to the 35W.
The palette's colour selection is pretty stunning. Mostly warm neutrals. A handful of base/lid shades. A smattering of peachy sunrise shades. A mix of browny bronzes. Plus, there's a nice mix of both shimmers and mattes. Super versatile. There are a few shades I have no love for (I'm looking at you, candy pink, silver and sparkly black), but overall, I'm happy.
Pigmentation and quality varies. I'd say about 90% of the palette is nicely pigmented, smooth, and blendable, while the remainder is pretty shit. I'm talking little pigment and a patchy finish. Duds aside, the shadows last really well on the lids. Freakishly well, actually. Good times.
I was going to swatch the entire palette, but laziness took over. Instead, I've swatched a handful of my favourites, as well as a few of the duds.
All up, I'm definitely a fan of the 35W. It's (mostly) great quality and fun to play with.
Have you tried anything from Morphe? Are you planning to? Tell me things!
