Morphe 12NB Natural Beauty Palette & 12S Soul Of Summer Palette.

While waiting for a few Morphe sold out palettes, I decided to get these travel ones instead: 12NB Natural Beauty & 12S Soul of Summer. To see if I liked the texture & longevity.

Both of these are a 12 eyeshadow pan with a mixture of shimmer and matte shades. The packaging is matte black plastic, thin & lightweight making it easier to travel with. These palettes have talc, mineral oil and parabens within the ingredients, which are not the best ingredients. Puts me on the fence as I try to avoid paraben products when possible. If you don't mind for that kind of thing and want to try Morphe eyeshadows, see my opinion below.
The Soul of Summer palette, is a mixture of metallic & shimmer. They're buttery in texture. If you love shades like this & shimmer, you'll be satisfied, without a doubt it's one swipe finger pigmented. As pictured while doing the swatches it didn't need a primer for it to adhere too, of course a white base will no doubt make it even more pigmented. The shades are mostly earthy/warm toned shades with golds & bronzes, with a thrown in a pewter shade for variation. I find that there is some fallout, so ensure you tap the brush when patting these on and blend the edges. I probably didn't need this palette, most shades reminds me of another palette I've already got, cough* UD Naked?

A neutral & night palette, Morphe 12NB Natural Beauty Palette reminds me of a Veluxe finish with neutral shades to deep reds. The first 5 shades of the palette are light & I find a little chalky, they could be good transition / blendable colours but without a doubt these needed a white base for the colour to be noticeable. The other 7 are not as bad, they're darker in pigmentation. I find this palette is fluid as it's got the ability to transition from shade to shade, very complimentary for an everyday look. I use the warm brown - orange undertone 7th shade, 9th shade a matte milk chocolate brown & 10th is more a warm medium matte brown frequently.

They're beautiful to look at which goes without saying & I pull out these palettes frequently but I seem to only use a couple shades to pull the look together. The longevity is pretty good, they hold up throughout the day. As I mostly use these as a transition, crease or lower lash line, I can't say how they really work on the eyelid. The purchases wasn't a need and I'm sure I'll have the palette for quite awhile so I don't see a repurchase anytime soon.

Have you tried anything from Morphe before?

Purchase: Natural Beauty Palette & Soul Of Summer Palette £11.95 each.

  3. These really are my perfect shades but the ingredients don't sit too well with me - you make the point they might not gel with everyone. Love your honest review. Tx

    1. You're welcome. It depends on your finish preference. I've used the natural one more than the Soul of Summer.
