Hey lovelies! I’ve been looking through my eyeshadow palette collection recently and I’ve realised how many of my palettes I haven’t used in SO long. It seems a shame that they’re just sitting in my drawer not getting used so I’m making it my mission to review more of them on my blog and use them more often!
Today it’s all about the Morphe 25A ‘Copper Spice’ palette, I thought it was the best time of year to talk about this palette as it’s absolutely perfect for autumn! As the name suggests the palette is full of gorgeous copper/brown toned shadows with a great mix of mattes and shimmers which means you can use it for everyday looks and more dramatic smokey eyes if that’s your thing!
I got this palette before Morphe had a whole overhaul of their packaging etc. so if you were to purchase it now the packaging would look a little different but it’s still the same palette I promise you! Also my palette didn’t come with a list of shade names but if you go on the Morphe website it does have a list of all the shade names for each row.
I’ll happily put my hands up and say I’m not a fan of the first row of shades at all, they’re all matte transition shades which I think I’ve only used once or twice but that’s purely because I don’t think the colours suit me much, a few of them have a really peachy undertone and although they look very similar in the pan you can kind of tell from the swatches that some are darker than others.
The second and third row are much more my cup of tea! They’re mainly matte shades and I absolutely adore them for transitions, building up colour in your crease and adding darker shades to my outer corner! These shadows are all very pigmented and blend together beautifully!
Row 4 has to be my favourite of them all like seriously I’d buy this palette just for the shimmers they are to die for! I’ve always been a fan of Morphe shimmer shadows anyway the formula is fabulous, really creamy with amazing pigment but these shades are simply gorgeous especially the last two on the row!
The final row also has a few beautiful shimmer shades and then the palette finishes off with a matte dark brown and black shadow which as I said earlier are great for those of you who love a smokey eye!
This palette retails at just £19 which for 25 eyeshadows I think is awesome! I love Morphe because they’re such a great brand who create good quality products for prices that are still affordable to most people! You can pay double the price of this palette for a lot less shadows from some higher end brands so this is definitely worth it in my opinion.
I’ve already mentioned how pigmented the shadows are, especially the shimmer shades and they’re so easy to apply! I created an eyeshadow look I was happy with in less than 10 minutes because the shadows blend so seamlessly together without a lot of effort!
I love how versatile this palette is too! In a rush in a morning? No problem throw on a transition shade and one of those beautiful shimmers and you’re ready to go in no time! Looking to create a gorgeous brown toned smokey eye? Look no further you literally have everything you need in this palette. The fact it has a matte black also means you could use it for some Halloween makeup looks too depending on what you’re going for!
This is the finished look I created with this palette and honestly I LOVE it! I can’t believe I’ve neglected this for so long, it’s certainly going to be used more often now! I’d definitely recommend this if you’re on the lookout for a new eyeshadow palette on a budget!
