I first heard about of the company Morphe a couple of days after Christmas - which would make sense as others would have been posting their new Morphe products online. In particular I saw a lot of the Morphe eye-shadow palettes. Despite being intrigued I decided not to look online because I had just received some lovely makeup for Christmas and didn't want to spend my money on another eye-shadow palette, just after my parents had brought me one. Since I hadn't looked online I just assumed that these palettes were going to be pricey. How wrong I was! These palettes are £15/£16 for 35 different shades! Wow! That's around £2.30 for one eye-shadow. My lovely friends brought me my palette for my birthday and I was so excited when I opened it! And excited I should have been as this palette is amazing!

I believe the reason for these eye-shadows being so cheap is because of the high talc content. Obviously I don't know the science behind how makeup is made but I do believe that usually high end eye-shadows tend to have a lower talc content. I don't think this should put you off at all though! It's not as if it means that these eye shadows aren't pigmented - because trust me they are! In fact, the majority of these eye-shadows are even more pigmented than a couple of the eye shadows from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. 

The packaging isn't great and it does look quite cheap, however when you're paying £15 for 35 good eye-shadows I don't think packaging is a massive issue. Another little downside to the product is how easily it wipes off. I have worn a day look using this palette which has honestly lasted me all day, however I think if you're planning to use this palette for a night out etc. then you'd be far better off using a primer first.

The colour range in the palette is fantastic for warmer skin tones - as the name suggests. But don't worry if you have a cooler skin tone because Morphe also have a palette especially for cooler skin tones. There are also a lovely range of both matte and shimmery shades, which is always nice. The shadows also blend easily, which is something I wasn't expecting.

I've swatched the shadows for you so you can hopefully see how pigmented the colours are. I've swatched row by row starting from the top.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed the post! I'm going to London on Thursday and am filming for my Media course work next week so hopefully there will be some interesting posts on the way!
