Meet the Twins: Morphe 35OM and 35OS Swatches and Review


The Morphe 35O palette is like gold dust to makeup addicts everywhere and one that despite repeatedly trying to get... is always out of stock everywhere. Its driven my crazy how nowhere has been restocking and Cult Beauty must know me on a first name basis now after how often I've been tweeting them asking when they are restocking.

I figure that Morphe must have felt my (very real) pain... because they recently released the twins; a full matte and full shimmer palette of the original 35O! When I found these, there wasn't any hanging around, I couldn't get them in my basket fast enough! When they arrived it felt like Christmas had come early and I got seriously picture heavy with the swatches, so brace yourself...


First up is the 35OM, which is the all matte version of the original 35O. Isn't it just gorgeous? I'm a sucker for nudes whether its lipsticks or eyeshadows so this palette has me super excited. There are so many shades for building up really well blended gradients and the reds and oranges are perfect for adding the extra pop of colour to my eye looks.

Next up is the 35OS which is the all shimmer version of the 35O and oh my life, they are literally life. They are just beyond creamy and pigmented to the point that it is difficult to believe the palettes are as cheap as what they are. I literally was so excited as I swatched each one that I couldn't stop saying 'yessssss'. Some of the shadows have a beautiful subtle shimmer, and some of them have a gorgeous, bold foiled finish, so they've given us lots of choice and versatility here my lovelies! 

I managed to get myself some me time to have a good play with these little beauts and couldn't have been more impressed with how they actually applied. I went for a burnt orange look because this is the first time I've had such bright colours, and added the gorgeous burnt orange foiled shade at the end of the bottom row in the 35OS to finish the whole look off. My lack of a decent camera means that the pictures I took don't have a high enough quality to show the shimmer up well, but trust me, in person it was really catching the light!


I honestly cant explain enough how much I love these palettes. I have been constantly disappointed that I couldn't get my hands on the original 35O, but after getting these, I feel like I was meant to wait! Granted, if you already have the 35O itself you probably wont buy these but honestly I think that it really is worth having them both. The fact that there is 70 shadows in total here make it possible to create so many different looks which makes them both amazing value for money.

If you want to pick these up, you'll either have to import them as a set from the US, or buy them separately in the UK which does make them a little more expensive but the price difference is pretty minimal. If you want to buy them in the UK, you can pick them up from Beauty Chamber, which is where I got mine!

If you do buy them, do let me know and if you have any other Morphe products that you're loving and recommend make sure to comment below and let me know.. I'm excited to add more Morphe products to my collection!

Much love,

  7. I am not a huge fan of make-up and I love these palettes, what more if you're into make-up, right? I can definitely understand why you like them! And the shades are perfect for everyday wear, I'm more into the matte ones though.

  8. i had the opportunity to see these in person at the IMATS convention but somehow they didn't really call out to me...even with all the hype. i was so excited to see them and was so sure i would purchase one! not sure what was going on for that day lol.

    i think it was brilliant for them to make the M and S palettes. im really more of a shimmer person so the S would have fit perfectly with me. but i've been on a downsizing kick lately so i probably won't pick it up
