MORPHE 35B + SWATCHES - IS IT WORTH THE HYPE?

morphe 35b colour artistry palette review is it worth the hype

So after watching 10 too many James Charles video every single day recently, my love and passion for make up has come back with a bang. I was feeling inspired again, to create looks totally new to me and out of my comfort zone. The perfect palette? The Morphe 35b, apparently. So, is this palette really great, or just hyped up by big beauty influencers because they have a discount code? 
The Colour Burst Artistry Palette contains 35 bold and bright shadows, mostly matte with a few shimmers. The palette cost £23, (although I did use James Charles’ discount code for 10% off.) 
Honestly I’ve never purchased an eye palette this cheap, I’ve paid over £30 for 4 shades from NARS in the past, so these shadows are literally pennies per shade - which instantly made me think they’d be a gimmick. Here’s what the shadows looked like when I swatched for the first time:

It’s clear that certain shades had much better pigmentation and pay off than others, It’s quite inconsistent. I’m guessing this is something to do with the way certain colours are made and the ingredients, but for the most part the shadows were well pigmented and the most vibrant shades really stood out, packed with pigment. 

The consistency and texture of the shadows in pan aren’t as luxurious as those we’ve seen in ABH Modern Renaissance or Violet Voss Holy Grail, in my opinion those two formulas are flawless - extremely buttery soft, they literally feel like silk the way they glide but still have insane pigmentation. But, we’ve got to bare in mind the price comparisons, and for £23 for 35 shades, the formula and texture is really, really good. 

My fear was that the more vivid shades (hot pink, yellow, purple etc,) would apply patchy and require a lot of building up; I was so wrong. I used the pink and purple to create this look on my Instagram and it didn’t take much work at all. The shades applied as they appeared in the pan, and they blended out so smoothly and easily. However, some of the shimmer shades swatched extremely sheer and I had to go back in several times to get a decent swatch for an image. So when it came to using the sheer pink shimmer in this look I wet my brush with Mac Fix+ to help it out, and still double dipped. 

This is the first Morphe product I’ve ever purchased, and over all it has given me a good first impression. I would totally recommend this palette, it’s so fun and you can be so creative. The colour spectrum is huge and has allowed me to venture into make up I never would before - and I’m obsessed with it. Creating bright, out there looks is my new jam. Even if you don’t use the palette often, it doesn’t break the bank, it’s literally cheaper than my Dominos order. 

I’m so excited to create more looks with this palette, so keep an eye out over on my Instagram and twitter to see what I do next @crtnygrdnr
And if you’re looking for the best brushes to pair with your 35b palette, I highly recommend adding the M441 and M433 to your basket.

I hope you have as much fun with this palette as I have, this product has rekindled my passion for make up completely.
