I bought 9 eyeshadows from the brand Morphe. I have already tried and tested 5 of those. I have been reviewing them as I form an opinion about them. This was my first purchase from this brand and the haul was all about what “Youtube beauty gurus made me buy”. I had heard good reviews about this brand, about its performance and affordability, so decided to buy eyeshadows and makeup brushes.

My Experience with Morphe Single Eyeshadow ES102 Stunner:
I love to wear eyeshadows every day. On the days when I am in a rush, I just apply a matte brown or bronze eyeshadow to add a pop of colour to my face and prevent my eyelids from creasing. I avoid applying dark eyeshadows on days I am running late because they require some skills and a slightly longer time to blend.
Also, if rushed, a dark eyeshadow can give panda eyes or ruin under eye makeup. So, I take my time, a trusted pointed eyeshadow brush and a fluffy blending brush and work the color into my eye sockets. These single eyeshadows by Morphe come securely packaged in a hard cardboard case and all of them arrived safely without any damage.
The product is pressed in an aluminium pan and I was glad to see that for such low price, they provide a generous amount of product. The pan is deeper than the usual single eyeshadows I purchase. The color of the shade “Stunner” is matte black-brown and is perfect for creating smokey eye look. I pick up a little bit of this shade on a pointed brush to apply it to my eye socket.
I have to be careful while applying because a little goes a long way in case of dark shades and it is essential to not go overboard else it will ruin the whole look. I then use a fluffy blending brush to smoke out the color. I repeat these two steps until I achieve desired smokiness and color intensity.
I also use this color to blend out the kohl on my waterline and give a more intense look to my eyes. Not all colors are meant for every skin tone and we have to be mindful of the color we apply but this dark shade can be applied to all skin tones to achieve a smouldering smokey eye look. This color will complement us all.
Most of the eyeshadows by Morphe are well pigmented and have a good color payoff. They can be easily picked up with a dense bristled brush and packed on the eyelids. Another good feature is that they have minimal fallout and give a good wear time (they stay crease-free for 6-8 hours).
The product is decently priced and comes in a sturdy, round shaped aluminium pan, and most importantly, can be attached to a custom eyeshadow palette. I usually stick a magnet behind my single eyeshadow pans and attach them to an aluminium pencil case.
