Okay everyone, today's post is all about Morphe individual shadows.
If you haven't seen the other posts from Mophe Week, definitely check them out 
Let me start out by saying they're $2.29 each but is comparable in quality to Makeup Geek and Anastasia. These are phucking amazing. 
Seriously buy a few of these. You won't be disappointed. 
You'll notice that 1 of the pans is larger, that's because I have one of their Premium eyeshadows ($6) and the quality is just insane. 
For $6 it should be an okay color, with okay pigmentation and okay staying power.. but it's so much better than okay. 
Morphe is killing it when it comes to affordable makeup. 

Let's jump in to it. 

from left to right 
Burlesque, Dazzling, Golden Glory, Honey Baked, Glisten, Perfection(my favorite brow highlight at the moment)

Deep Cocoa, Nuts For You, Caramelized, Cafe Macchiato, Deep Skin
Deep Skin is almost the same shade as my skin, so whenever I use too much product or need to clean up edges, I always reach for this. 
It never hurts to have a shade identical to your skin simply for this reason. 

Rosey Posey (premium e/s) Wink For Pink, Fiesta, Sassy, Rosewood, Secretive
Rosey Posey is just a pinch more peach than Wink For Pink. I don't know if you're able to tell in photos. 

Tokyo Tea, Ocean Frost, B.A.M., Aloha, Breakfast At Tiffaneez, Naughty Girl. 
The only shadow that has less than excellent color pay off is Breakfast At Tiffaneez. 
I had to run my finger in the pan 4times in order to get this very light baby blue eyeshadow to even show off on camera. It makes it super difficult to use on my oily lids. After a few hours of it on, it truly just fades away which is sad, because it's such a unique matte baby blue shade. 

Dramatic Cat Eye - Day 4

Happy Friday !!
It's a beautiful day in NEPA and this week was equally as beautiful. 
My first full week in my new leadership role was amazing, and I'm finally enjoying going to work !
Speaking of things I'm enjoying, this cat eye thoooooughh...
If you're petty and wanna show your ex's new thing that they still ain't shit... 
This is how you do your makeup.

Hi everyone,
Welcome do Day 3 of Morphe week here on the blog.
Check out Day 1 and Day 2 !
Today's post will be exclusively on the 35K Palette. 
I've been really digging this one for a number of reasons, it has both warm & cool shades, with a handful of really amazing shimmers with RIDICULOUS intensity.
This palette definitely doe not get the recognition I feel it deserves, if you're not a huge fan of warm browns, golds, oranges and red, this is your jam.
Perfect for everyday work or school looks, but with lots of deeper, darker shades that allow you to turn it up a bit. 

Without talking too much, let's just get to the swatches. That's why you're here anyways.
All the swatches are taken outside, with no flash so the colors are true to life.






Hope this was helpful guys

G I L D E D - Using Morphe 35O

Hey everyone !
Today's look is using the Morphe 35O Palette, if you haven't been able to get your hands on it yet, follow the brand on social media, they always send out notifications when this beauty is back in stock.
I was one of the lucky few who were able to buy this when it first released last year, and it's been put to VERY good use. 
There are hundreds of Youtube tutorials and write-ups on major beauty influencer's blogs, so if you don't like the look I have for you today, don't worry. You will definitely find a handful of looks to fall in love with.
If you haven't seen this week's first post, you can check it out here
I love how this looks and the versatility of it. 
If you add some glitter in the center you can easily transform this from day to night. 

Let's jump into it !

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Chocolate
Wet n Wild Photofocus Eye Primer
Maybelline Master Fix Setting Powder (all over eye to make blending easier)
Morphe35O Palette 

I found the trick to an effortlessly blended halo eye is starting with your transition shade directly after applying your primer, and then layering and blending the outer and inner corners of your eyes and then lastly applying a color in the center of the lid. 
It took me a few days of practicing before creating this look. 

Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm
NYX Angel Veil 
Ulta Demi-Matte Foundation
Maybelline Better Skin Concealer
e.l.f. High Definition Undereye Setting Powder
Maybelline Master Fix Setting Powder
Milani Face and Body Bronzer in Tantasic
NYX Blush in Cinnamon

Are you guys excited?
I phucking hope so, I've been wanting to do this since this brand has BLOWN up on the interwebs. 
So welcome to Morphe week. This week there will be 6 days of posts.
Day 1 is full swatches of the 35O, Day 2 will be a look using 35O, Day 3 will be full swatches of the 35K, Day 4 will be a look using the 35K, Day 5 will be all on their individual eye shadows, and then Day 6 will be a look using some of the shadows.
Get excited, because this is kind of a big deal
So without anymore chit chat. Let's do it. 

If you haven't browsed the Morphe website, here's a quick synopsis of what you'll find, individual brushes, brush sets, individual shadows, eye shadow, brow, blush, and contour palettes all top quality, affordable products from a rather recent brand. I have been using Morphe products for about a year, and in that time I've seen an amazing growth, primarily from their partnerships with Top Influencers like Jaclyn Hill. Now that they're a powerhouse within the beauty community, all of their products are highly coveted, and with plenty of reason. They keep getting better and better. If you don't believe me, let's take a look at their most talked about product, the 35O palette.

Featuring 35 warm neutrals, pinks, and cream shadows with an assortment of finishes, Foiled eye shadows, with the perfect mixture of mattes, shimmers, lustres and satins right off the back you can see why this palette is ALWAYS out of stock. But it's worth going to the site and refreshing your browser page every 5minutes for, I promise.

With the success of the 35O palette, Morphe launched an all matte, and all shimmer version of this holy grail palette, demonstrating one of the many reasons I love this brand. They satisfy their customers 110% and continue to roll with the punches to ensure top notch quality and 100% customer satisfaction !

The 35O along with the other varieties of their signature '35' Palettes are $22.99 + tax &Shipping.
The packaging is comparable to the bhcosmetics palettes, they're a kind of plastic material, with no inside mirror. But for $23, I mean, does it really matter? The quality of the shadows are unbelievable.
Take a look for yourself.
