So, I’ve got a couple of new palettes to chat about with you. Wait, two palettes, in one post? Yes, this will be a combined review of two palettes. The Morphe 25A and 25B palettes are sister palettes so I felt like this was the best way to review them to prevent me from repeating myself. Also known as the Copper Spice and Bronzed Mocha palettes, they’re a duo that was created as limited edition, but have stuck around since December 2016.
I’ve never done a double review, so please bare with me on this one. I’m kind of going to be winging it, but I’m hoping it’s not too much of a mess. Let me know what you think of this kind of format as I want to start doing comparison posts in the future.
I first came across these palettes because of my friend Lillie. She bought the Copper Spice palette a while ago, and when she sent a picture of it to our group chat, I fell in love immediately. It was a real tough decision on which one to get. My solution to this dilemma was to just get both. Whoops!
Both of these palettes are so beautiful. The shades in the Morphe 25A Copper Spice palette are right up my street. I am a huge lover on golds, browns, and warm tones. The glitters looked incredible and I couldn’t wait to try them.
The formula to these shadows is great. They’re really soft and bendable, especially the mattes. They give little-to-no fallout which is an absolute dream. However, the glitters do have a bit of fallout, but this is to be expected with shades like these. When I first swatched the glitters, I could not believe how pigmented they were! It’s like spreading gold butter. My only downside to the formula in these palettes is that some of the matte shades can be quite chalky so they require a bit more work. I always remind myself that you can always add, but never take away to remind myself to be more careful with these shades.
Each of these Morphe palettes retail for £19, so they are super affordable. I always like to work out the average price of each shadow to put the price into perspective. The shadow cost once broken down between the 25 shades works out to around 76p each. I can’t moan at the affordability at all. These palettes have put me back in touch with my warm tone roots. I find myself reaching for the burgundy shades in the 25B Bronzed Mocha palette too.
Both palette’s shade rings are beautiful. I love that they tie together so well as they’re sister palettes. It’s great as they can be used together or alone, yet still able to create a wide range of looks. The range of mattes, shimmers, and glitters, has got me being a lot more playful with the non-matte shades. I have been playing with both palettes a lot in the last few weeks, and you’ll see one of the looks very soon.
Overall, these Morphe palettes are fabulous. I would like more consistency in the shadow’s formula, but the price point is such amazing value for money. These are palettes I’m glad to have in my kit, and I know I’m going to get so much use out of them. I’d recommend them to any warm-tone lover out there.
