I’m trying to figure out a way to write this post without coming across like a judgemental bitch and realised I can’t because I am. Morphe has had a lot of controversy surrounding the brand, down to quality and repackaging shadows from China. Also, with Youtubers constantly pushing codes and their products, I was really put off using them. I’d already decided I was never going to purchase their products. I had read mixed reviews but my narrow little mind put the good reviews down to the fact that their favourite Youtubers probably loved them so the products had to be good.
My lovely friend Raych (IG Here, follow her, she’s such a sweetheart) kindly gifted me a Morphe 350S palette and was excited to finally try the brand I had such a bad view on. Boy was I wrong.
Repackaged or not, the quality of these shadows is incredible, I don’t own a palette as pigmented as this, high end or drugstore. I have one that comes close but not every shadow is spot on unlike this palette. Here are some random finger swatches from the palette (look at the orange!)
Next pictures are brush swatches using a Blank Canvas E24 .
I have to say I was wrong (so far) with my thoughts on this brand. I have only tried one palette so the rest could be shit for all I know, but so far I will say my judgement was wrong. They feel creamy, don’t crease on me, some of the darker shades do have a little fall out but nothing major. I might purchase a few more palettes so I can make a proper judgement but so far I’m impressed and have learnt my lesson to judge before I’ve even tried.
Thanks so much for reading!
