Review: Morphe 35B & 35W

Hello everyone! Yesterday my order of 2 Morphe palettes from beautybay arrived in the post, and because I was so amazed with the quality I thought I'd share it on my blog with you guys! I ordered the palette on Tuesday evening and it arrived the next day in the evening with free shipping! I really am happy with the service from beautybay.



The size of these palettes are fairly big as you can see, however its quite compact and thin so it can be fairly suitable for travelling, especially if you're a makeup artist, they would be very convenient for your kit.

It was rather hard for my camera to pick up the shimmery/satin shades so hopefully in the pictures below you can get a better idea of what this palette includes!

#1 - matte    #2 - matte    #3 - glitter    #4 - satin    #5 - satin    #6 - matte    #7 - satin
#8 - matte    #9 - satin    #10 - glitter    #11 - satin    #12 - matte    #13 - matte    #14 - matte
#15 - satin    #16 - matte    #17 - satin   #18 - matte    #19 - matte    #20 - matte    #21 - satin
#22 - glitter    #23 - matte    #24 - matte    #25 - matte    #26 - matte    #27 - matte    #28 - matte
#29 - matte    #30 - satin    #31 - matte    #32 - matte    #33 - matte    #34 - satin    #35 - matte

Overall I am amazed by the quality of these eyeshadows. I honestly recommend this palette to anyone who likes a bit of colour in their life as these are hands down the best quality eyeshadows that I've tried so far for vibrant colours. 
I've tried Revolution colour palettes (from Superdrug) and their quality is good but the Morphe quality is 100% better and worth the money, for the price of the Morphe palettes (£20) I'd definitely recommend the Morphe ones over the revolution one which is about £4, as you do get a variety of shades.
I was amazed by the pigmentation of the matte shades as usually matte colours tend to be a lot less pigmented than shimmery/satin shades as the formula is drier and not as creamy - thus making it not as pigmented, but as you can see in the swatches the colour pay off is lovely!

#1 - matte    #2 - matte    #3 - matte    #4 - satin    #5 - satin    #6 - matte    #7 - satin
#8 - satin    #9 - satin    #10 - matte    #11 - matte    #12 - satin    #13 - matte    #14 - satin
#15 - satin    #16 - matte    #17 - satin   #18 - satin    #19 - satin    #20 - satin    #21 - satin
#22 - matte    #23 - satin    #24 - satin    #25 - satin    #26 - satin    #27 - satin    #28 - satin
#29 - satin   #30 - matte    #31 - matte    #32 - matte    #33 - matte    #34 - glitter    #35 - matte

The pigmentation on this palette is also amazing, just as good (if not better) than the colour palette, being as these colours are all neutral so the colour pay off is natural always better than coloured/vibrant eyeshadows.
I am really impressed with this palette, I'm just blown away that I can't think of anything better to say about these palettes because they're THAT amazing.

I really do recommend these if you're a makeup addict like myself, you can pretty much see for yourself the quality of these shadows! Both these palettes retail for around £20, which is personally a good value for the quality. I personally feel like these shadows are the same sort of quality as MAC eyeshadows, if not better, and MAC shadows retail for £15 each whereas with this palette you get 35 eyeshadows for £20, so you're paying about 57p per shadow which is AN ABSOLUTE BARGAIN!

I hope you enjoyed this review!
