As a gift to myself, I bought the Morphe 35OM Eyeshadow Palette for my 20th birthday and this has been one of my best makeup buys ever. The Morphe 35OM Eyeshadow Palette is the matte version to the very popular Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette

  • You get 35 shades for $23 (USD), that's about $0.66 (USD) for each individual eyeshadow.
  • It's the perfect everyday neutral eyeshadow palette.
  • The darker eyeshadow shades are super-duper pigmented which is perfect for women of colour like myself.
  • One of my biggest struggles with eyeshadows specifically more affordable eyeshadows is the way that the colour looks in the pan changes when I apply it to my brown skin tone, it becomes a dull and ashy version to the exact colour in the pan which can be very annoying, but with this eyeshadow palette the colour transfers exactly the same on my skin tone.

  • The lighter shades are not as pigmented as the darker shades.
  • Some of the eyeshadow shades seem to be a bit repetitive, meaning that you get two of the same shades.
  • The packaging is not the fanciest it's plastic and gets scratched and dirty very quickly. 
  • I would love if the palette had a mirror, just imagine doing your eye makeup with this palette in your hand brush in the other hand and having to put the palette down each and every time to grab your mirror to see what you're doing, it can become a bit much.
  • The shipping price is not your best friend, the amount of money I paid for shipping for this one palette is ridiculous.

Trying to find the right foundation is not as easy as it looks. Each foundation is unique in it's own way some are matte, some or dewy, some provide a full coverage and some provide a light coverage. For the past year, I have been switching out between three drugstore foundations that I've grown to love for different reasons.

I am in the shade 355 Coconut and I wore this foundation the most out of all three throughout last year and I love the way that it made my skin look. If you're looking for a foundation that's medium coverage, matte and lightweight, this is the perfect foundation for you. I did experience some oiliness towards the end of the day so I would suggest setting this foundation with really a good setting powder.

 Towards the end of last year, I bought this foundation in the shade 13 Chestnut and I was so surprised the first time I used it. It is the perfect foundation for someone who loves building their foundation from medium to full coverage. Keep in mind that this is not a matte foundation and it takes a long time to dry or set into the skin so you definitely will have to use a mattifying primer for longevity. 

I love an easy effortless no-makeup makeup look and if you're like me you will love this foundation. It has a very light coverage, looks natural almost like your own skin and feels extremely lightweight. Maybelline has pointed out that the formula in this foundation can help improve the appearance of skin in just three weeks which is the main reason why I bought it in the shade 95 Coconut.
