Morphe 35T Review and Swatches

Hello everyone,

 This weeks post is a very exciting one , it’s a review on the amazing morphe palette! So I got the Morphe 35T a few months ago from Beauty Bay and it was only £19.50!! I have been wanting a Morphe palette for ages ,after the massive hype over it and I decided it was finally time to invest . Before getting this palette , I didn’t own any really expensive palettes and just owned a few drugstore ones , which were good for beginners but I knew I wanted something a little bit more special. I thought I would review it and include some swatches (sorry they’re not the best) to let you know whether they are really worth the hype!


The palette came really quickly and it packaged very simply , in just a black box and protected really well with loads of bubble wrap so it came in perfect condition.The shadows have lots of taupes, browns , golds, bronzes , rose golds , cranberry type shades, so you can easily create endless amounts of different looks with! I was really surprised when I first swatched them as they were incredibly pigmented and they feel so buttery and soft .Especially the shimmers and metallics! The mattes don’t have the best pigmentation in the world but still blend nicely.You only have to tap your brush in once and it picks up so much product , so the pans of eyeshadows will last for ages! All of the shadows blend really well so even if you’re brushes aren’t the best you can still create some stunning looks! I also like that there is a quite a lot of mattes , which is quite unusual for most eyeshadow palettes and have such a lovely texture .

Row 2/ my favourite row!! right to left (with flash)


Row 3: top to bottom

Row 4: right to left

Row 5: top to bottom


The longevity of them is amazing as well , they don’t crease if you have an eyeshadow primer or base on ( I use the NYX jumbo pencil in milk and set with a skin toned shadow) and don’t transfer either. When applied there is barely any fallout which is always a bonus!

Overall , I would definitely recommend a Morphe palette as you get 35 amazing quality shades for around £25!! Morphe is an American brand but they are available on https://www.cultbeauty.co.uk/search?q=Morphe and also http://www.beautybay.com/morphebrushes/ . I got mine off BeautyBay but a few of my friends have ordered off Cult Beauty before and their delivery has been really good aswell. They have so many different palettes that will suit everyone, even one with just bright colours in ,for those of you that are more adventurous than me!! Personally,I have my eyes on the 35O and 35F !! So if you have been thinking of getting a morphe palette DEFINITELY GET ONE! It will be one of the best makeup purchases you’ll have bought for a while, trust me ,you won’t regret it.

Am I a Feminist?

Hello everyone ,

So this weeks post is quite controversial but I’d love to hear your opinion on this topic whether it is different to mine or not , I’m really interested.

When anyone says feminist , everyone’s immediate thought seems to be ‘men haters’ or ‘anti men’ and being a feminist is seemed to be a negative thing. Most people seem to hate any feminists and the whole topic in general seems to make people feel uncomfortable or annoyed, but I don’t understand why . Feminism should be something to be proud of!

The actual meaning of feminism is completely opposite to what everyone assumes it means . According to the dictionary feminism is ‘the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities’. This is so true , women for hundreds of years have never had equal opportunities to men and had to go to extreme measures just to get us to vote – the suffragettes . Feminists inspire me so much because they’re not afraid to stand up for what they believe in and have made so many changes to get us women in the position we are in today. However , things still need to change …

I mean , wouldn’t it be nice if girls and women felt safe enough to walk around the streets alone late at night without the fear of getting raped? If women got paid the exact same wage as men for doing the exact same jobs? If no jobs were seen as too ‘manly ‘ for women to do? EXACTLY! But let’s not forget the men. It would also be nice if men could show be able to show emotions without being thought of as being a ‘wuss’.I know now ,lots of men are wearing makeup and are slaying so much but wouldn’t it be amazing if all men could feel comfortable wearing makeup and didn’t get judged? Or if men didn’t have to be anxious about not being ‘manly’ enough’?

I support equal rights for women AND men , I just want to live in a equal society,where we don’t have to worry about stereotypes. If a woman wants to be a policewoman that’s fine , if a man wants to be a hairdresser that’s fine , you get what I mean. Don’t let any stereotypes or other people’s opinions affect your decision , you do whatever you want to be!! If we carry on fighting against stereotypes , one day we will be able to actually live in a gender equality society!!

7 things I hate about girls, being a girl

Hey everyone,
Okay, so I’m all for women’s rights and standing up for girls but we all know there are many negatives to being a girl . We all know being a girl is generally quite bloody difficult , especially a teenage girl surrounded by unrealistic expectations and full of emotions we don’t know how to deal with.So when other girls decide to try and cause trouble , spread nasty rumours , attention seek etc , it really doesn’t make life an easier. So here are 7 of the things that I hate about girls …

  •  Drama, drama and drama

Out of boys and girls, it’s well known that girls are the most likely to have arguments . If boys fall out they may have a slight scuffle and then get over it but when girls fall out it’s like World War 3 ! It doesn’t end after one argument , it just goes on for ages and then just seems to get worse and worse ,as all other girls feel the need to get involved – even the ones who you don’t normally talk to. The arguments are normally really petty and start over literally nothing and just escalate into something so terrible . I honestly can’t be bothered with any of the drama . I know many girls who seem to enjoy stirring and causing trouble and making girls feel so worthless and unsure of themselves and I hate it.

  • Snakes aka back stabbing bitches

You girls all know what I mean by ‘snakes’ , we’ve all experienced at least one in our life and these are the girls we all try to avoid.Those girls who make you question your trust , as you put everything into your friendship , for them to just turn right around and stab you right in the back. When you least expect it .And then people wonder why we have trust issues…

  • Putting other girls down

Being a girl is difficult enough without another girl putting you down , like we all go through periods , we’re all expected to look perfect and pretend to be happy and calm all the time. Sometimes we’re not and then when another girl starts commenting or whispering about you it really doesn’t help. Everyone has their insecurities and when someone kindly decides to point them out it makes you feel even worse. Basically all I’m saying is THERE’S NO NEED ,LIKE EVER! Us girls need to support each other and be more positive like ‘yass girl your eyebrows are slaying today’ not like ‘ew her eyebrows look like slugs wtf’. NO NEED!

  •  Attention seeking

It really bugs me how basically every teenage girl seems to always be complaining about their weight like even the skinniest of people. On their sc stories they post pictures of them basically in their bra and extremely short shorts , and then the next day at school they stand in front of the mirror and start complaining about how fat they are. You feel inclined to say ‘you’re not fat’ and that’s all they’re doing it for , is for attention. It’s really obvious they don’t think they’re overweight because otherwise they wouldn’t have somuch confidence to post pictures like that. It’s not just weight though, girls attention seek over its things like periods , mental illnesses and boy drama. It’s so annoying! Like we all have our own problems to deal with  so we don’t need to hear about your issues when all you want is attention and compliments!

  •  Trying to be popular

The aim of high school for most girls is to be popular and you probably know the cliche groups :the populars, the wannabe populars , the ‘freaks/weirdos’ , the quiet ones , the nerds etc. Almost everyone wants to be popular and get the popular girls approval ,therefore they go to great lengths to try and achieve it ,like : having a handbag , the same coat as all the popular girls , wearing loads of makeup to school (you get the gist). If you’re not in the populars you get judged so much and labelled , so almost everyone tries so hard . I understand why girls do it but I gave up a long time ago , I’m not a popular but I have loads of friends and I love them to pieces , I don’t honestly care if I don’t get boyfriends easily or get hundreds of likes on Instagram . I’m happy. I just wish all girls didn’t care so much and just focused on being happy instead of what others think of them.

  • Jealousy

Let’s face it . Most of girls bitchiness is caused by jealousy . Someone has always got something what you want , maybe they have the latest phone , more expensive makeup , better figure , nicer hair , you know what I mean. Sometimes jealousy turns into bitterness and this makes some girls get nasty and start giving you a hard time just because they’re just jealous. Therefore they’ll spread rumours about you and make comments to try and make you doubt yourself and put you down . So what if someone has something you want , if everyone had the same thing it’d be boring.

  • Expectations

As a girl we have high expectations from literally everyone and also to each other. We can’t be slightly overweight because then we’re really greedy and fat but we can’t be too thin because otherwise we’re anorexic . We can’t cry if we need to , because we’re just being over emotional and hormonal or ‘it’s that time of the month’ but if we pretend we’re fine and nothing’s wrong we’re a cold hearted bitch . We can’t not wear makeup because if we do we’re not trying and are ugly but if we wear ‘too much’ makeup we’re fake and trying too hard. See the pattern? Everything we do is wrong .And some girls instead of supporting each other , are SO judgemental and then wonder why , the person doesn’t talk a lot or is really self conscience. Everyone would be a lot happier and more care free if there was no high expectations and people just embraced their imperfections and not cared about what others think as long as they’re happy.
Let’s face it , if a man acted to a woman the way women sometimes act with each other ,it would be classed as sexism but it seems acceptable for women to treat each other like that? I don’t understand . If we as women want to be treated equally and not be judged as much , we should start being a lot more supportive of each other and more positive , instead of being so negative and judgmental all the time. Try giving at least one compliment a day to anyone around you and trust me , it will increase their confidence and make you feel so much happier about yourself!!
