Morphe Brushes Review: 35N Matte Palette

Morphe Brushes 35N Matte Palette

Okay, so I haven't really been able to give this product an extensive review because I just received it this morning and I haven't really had much time to play around with it. I did however immediately open it when I received it and started swatching and testing out some of the shadows!

I ordered the Morphe Brushes 35N Matte Palette a little over a week ago and got it in the mail today. I heard good things about this company and I wanted to give it a try myself! The palette itself sells for $19.95 and then there is the cost of shipping (changes depending on promo code used). 

I went with the matte palette because all of my Naked Palettes from Urban Decay have all the shimmer I need and I have a million MAC shimmer/satin shadows so I wanted to deviate a bit! I heard that the matte shadows are pigmented, but slightly harder to work with than the satin shadows Morphe Brushes offers. Based on a few swatches I can see how that may be true, but for the price I am really liking these shadows so far. 

This morning I didn't intend on wearing any make up today, but when I got these on the porch I thought I might as well play around with it and do a really subtle look. I didn't prime my face, use any eyeliner and I barely touched my brows. I really wasn't in the mood for make up today so I will have to do a few other looks with this palette later, but just to show you guys I figured I would take a picture of the look. I wanted browns and something warm because cool tones do not look good on me, I look like a hooker when I wear them. So I just went with a terra cotta color scheme for today. 


I took this one on my phone so the colors on my lid may be slightly different than if I were to use my nice camera, but I will do a look later on after I mess around with the shadows a bit. 


Here is a picture of the shadows I used for this look. From Top to Bottom: The 1st one circled I used to prep my lids with an all over color. The 2nd one I used with a giant fluffy brush to sweep all over the crease. The 3rd I focused in my crease with a more precise fluffy brush. The 4th I used to line my under-eye. The 5th I used in the outer-v corner of my lid. The 6th I used as my "eyeliner" on the outer corner of my lid staying close to my lash line. I also brought the 6th color down on my under-eye and focused on the outer corner to connect the top and bottom. 

Like I said, I did not do an extensive full face of make up and I went with some safer colors because I didn't really feel like wearing much make up today if any at all. I plan on doing a pretty cranberry and also an eggplant look in the future for some fun fall looks.
