If you thought the Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette was bomb, you haven’t seen anything yet! In celebration of this game changing palette’s two year anniversary, Morphe shocked the internet by releasing an equally pigmented sequel, the 35O2. My eyes widen, jaw dropped, and heart fasten when I saw the promo photos for this palette. The original 35O palette has been my number one Morphe palette ever since it came into my possession and I didn’t think another palette from them (except the Jaclyn Hill palette) would ever take its place in my heart, but the time has come and the spot has been taken over by this new beauty!
Along with the launch of this palette, Morphe also had a makeover. They updated their website for a more professional appearance, as well as their product packaging. From the carton to the logo, Morphe dropped the red M from their name for a cleaner, simpler look with plain white capitalized letters in a smaller font. In this case, less is definitely more — I’m really digging this change and am loving the sleek new look.
The 35O2 Eyeshadow Palette ($23.00 for 56.2 g / 35) contains thirty-five large eye colors with a blend of warm and cool tones, and a variety of finishes that include matte, shimmer, and metallic. There is a noticeable warmer selection of colors compared to the first palette with lots of orange and red undertones. Unlike the other Morphe palettes, these colors all have names to accompany them, a first of its kind, not including the Jaclyn Hill collaboration palette.
As someone who can never get enough of warm eyeshadows, I was instantly mesmerized by this palette because of the unbelievable amount of orange tones in the lineup (I love orange!). This palette fulfilled all of my desires when it came to a well-rounded warm palette from a golden champagne to an intense matte black with beautiful browns, bold reds, and rich burgundies in between, the color spectrum was everything that I was longing for.
I noticed a significant difference with the formula of these colors compared to the rest of my Morphe palettes. Morphe’s shimmer shades have always been on point with loads of pigments, but their matte formula tend to feel very dry; however, that wasn’t the case with these colors. Every single shade in this palette felt incredibly soft and creamy, even the black shade was buttery and that’s usually a very hard color to formulate. I was shook by the softness of these colors and the intensity of their payoff — the quality is out-of-this-world! If you own the Jaclyn Hill palette, these eyeshadows are very similar to those shades in terms of formulation, pigmentation, and performance. I’ve worn a handful of these eye colors already and was so impressed with how workable they were. They blended onto the skin with effortlessness, built up readily when needed, and worked beautifully with one another to create a cohesive, even finish. The colors were vibrant, true-to-color, and long lasting. I also noticed some kickback in the pans, especially with the bright matte red, so just be careful to not dig your brush profusely into the pans to avoid wasting product. Other than that, I have no complaints about this palette and think it’s definitely a must-have in your collection! You can’t beat the quality, shade range, and amount of product for the affordable price! When a product is this good, you definitely can’t sleep on it — this palette is amazing!
