Morphe 12S Soul Of Summer Palette

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a lovely weekend, I'm actually enjoying a week off work at the minute since my shifts got switched around a bit so I'm enjoying it while I can because I'm in basically everyday from Thursday onwards for a while so I'm making the most of the time off. It feels like it's been so long since I've done a palette review, but I try to limit myself to how many I buy because I've got such a big pile of them to work through and it seems like it's never going to end. I did treat myself though when I saw this Morphe palette on Cult Beauty because it was so pretty and the shades were all right up my street. I'm far more into shimmer shades than matte shades, and this palette consists of 12 shimmers, it obviously isn't a palette you can use completely on it's own, well I can't anyway as I do use matte shades on my eyes alongside shimmers but I couldn't resist getting this as it had the prettiest shades in it.


The palette has a mixture of 12 shimmery shades, they're so coppery and bronzey I'm actually obsessed with them! On the website it talks about the palette being designed for summer with it's really warm tones wanting to complement sun kissed complexions. Don't get me wrong though I think these shades would look lovely on lighter skin tones as well, not just for those with a tan, however I can't wait till I get a bit more tanned so I can wear these more!


The packaging is just standard Morphe, it's pretty basic but I don't think they need to be too over the top as it's definitely reflected in the price, this was only £11.95 and considering you get 12 shades that are really nice quality, especially considering the price I don't feel like the packaging needs to be any different. I love the packaging as well because it's such a good size, the eyeshadow pans are quite big but the palette is quite small, it's really thin and compact so it's really good for travelling. I do wish that these eye shadows have names though, I just find them much easier to talk about when they have been named, but it's not a necessity it's just something I prefer.

One thing I really want to point out is that all the swatches were all one swipe so it just shows how insanely pigmented these shadows are, they're amazing! I do feel like all the shades are so summery and pretty and I will 100% be getting a lot of use out of this palette. I've had really good experiences with Morphe products actually, I love their 35O palette so much, and this one is so good as well, I feel like this is just an all shimmer, more compact version of that palette. Considering the price these are such good quality, the only difference I will say is that these feel a little bit chunkier than some other high end shimmery eye shadows, the glitter in them is a little bit more noticeable and you can tell when you swatch them. I think that this will just make them a little bit more work when you are applying them, but I don't think it's a major issue and the pigmentation is definitely there, so for the price I feel like this is a must have if you love warm shades like these! I love all the shades, however I don't think I will get a lot of use out of the middle row compared to the others as I don't love them as much, if I had to pick a favourite shade it would probably be the last two on the top row and the third shade on the bottom row, they're so pretty. Let me know in the comments if you've tried this palette and what you think!

  9. Wow - the swatches look so pigmented! It is annoying when the glitter is quite visible, though the shades are still very pretty, I do tend to need some mattes in there

  18. That is such a stunning palette but I do wish it comes with a couple of matte shades, it's not a deal breaker though.

  22. When I was looking at this one on Beautybay it said something like limited to one per person or something, that's when you know it's a good palette! Those swatches though, wow!

  34. This palette looks like it's amazing quality! I hear sort of mixed reviews on Morphe shadows so I'm a little nervous to take the plunge and try some for myself, but the price point on their products is usually so reasonable which makes it tempting!
