Morphe Brushes is such a buzzed-about brand right now, and rightly so. I have a fair few of their 35 shadow palettes, and let me tell you – they are absolutely amazing, and it’s hard to comprehend how they can create such amazing, high quality shadows for such a low price. The quality of the shadows in the palettes is better than any other budget beauty brand I’ve tried.. better than Makeup Revolution, Sleek, Essence, Rimmel and L’Oreal, and there are so many to choose from too. I decided it was high time that I tried the Morphe Brushes solo shadows, so here is my recent Morphe Brushes Individual Eyeshadows Haul…
Morphe Brushes is an American brand, but luckily here in the UK we can get a selection of their products on Beauty Bay and Beauty Chamber, but I’d recommend Beauty Chamber over Beauty Bay every time as I’ve had endless issues with Beauty Bay over the last few months.
The Morphe Brushes Individual Eyeshadows are $2.29 on the Morphe Brushes website, and they do ship internationally however you’re then running the risk of incurring customs fees but you can purchase them for £2.35 on Beauty Chamber and have peace of mind knowing there are no surprise custom fees coming your way.
Beauty Chamber have the shadows categorised by finish; Frost, Lustre, Matte, Pearl, Satin, Shimmer and Velvet. I purchased six shades to begin with, alongside a small Z Palette to keep them in.
The six shades that I bought are; New Moon, Granite, Midnight Kiss, Lustrous, Pink Silk and Bridesmaid.
New Moon is a strange shadow as it’s very much a taupe in the pan, but when on the lid the taupe somehow disappears completely and it’s more of a light brown. It’s a nice brown, but I really wish it was the shade in the pan as I love a good taupe shadow and I have a million light brown shadows like this in my collection.
Granite is a rich, dark chocolate brown with a red undertone.
Midnight Kiss is a very gritty, and chunky burgundy brown. This is sadly a disappointing shade as it’s so dusty, and powdery plus it’s difficult to apply so I’d recommend skipping this shade completely as it’s not great.
Lustrous is a pale, pink toned champagne with a satin finish.
Pink Silk is a very pale, baby pink matte.
Bridesmaid is a pinky toned brown matte.
I think these Morphe Brushes Individual Eyeshadows are good quality for £2.35 each, but I honestly don’t think they compare to the quality in the shadows within their eyeshadow palettes which is strange as you’d assume it’d be the other way round.
I think if you tried these shadows as your first try of Morphe Brushes, you’d possible be not interested in trying more from the brand but their palettes are definitely better quality in terms of pigmentation, texture, blendability and longevity. I would still like to purchase a few more of the individual shadows to fill this little Z Palette, but I now know not to expect the same quality of their palettes with the individual eyeshadows.
