Morphe 25A: Copper Spice review

By on June 17, 2017

I never thought I would ever write a review on this beaut of a palette… but Beauty Bay FINALLY started stocking it and I knew I just had to have one of my own. If you aren’t familiar with Morphe in general, they do incredibly pigmented eyeshadow palettes (one of their most raved about being the ‘Morphe 35O’) for an incredible price. You get my drift…

However, after purchasing the Morphe 35O palette a few months back, I was eager to add to my collection and find the right palette which would do just that. The ’25A Copper Spice’ eyeshadow palette is limited edition (which makes it even more of a gem!) and features all the ‘copper’ colours you would need for the most loved warm toned eye look.

The palette features 25 colours which consists of 16 matte and 9 shimmer. As mentioned earlier, the palette is warm toned so it features a lot of red / brown colours as well as an incredibly pigmented black to add some depth into your outer corner. Not only that, but the shimmer colours are bright and ‘poppy’ so adding some glam to your eye look isn’t a problem.

The first row of the palette also features some pale toned colours which are great as transition shades, and add diversity into the overall collection. When experimenting with this palette I used the yellow / brown toned colour on the top row as my main transition shade (which worked really well!) and went from there.

Next, I took a light brown colour from the second row to add some depth into my crease. I normally like to go for a bold eye-look which is full of dark colours, and then contrasted with a ‘pop’ of colour in the inner corner of my eye, so this colour was the perfect match for this. To add depth even further (and also because I LOVE red toned eye looks!), I used the seasonal red colour from the third row of the palette.

When I had the main base of my eyeshadow all ready, I used the ultimate black shade at the bottom of the palette. The pigmentation of this is absolutely incredible, and really helps to bring depth into the outer corner of my eye. It also contrasts well with the red and brown colours I used earlier, to give an extra ‘warm’ look.

As always… my eyeshadow looks aren’t complete without a tad bit of shimmer in there. This was one of the hardest choices I made when coming up with this eye look as this palette includes so many exciting shimmers to experiment with. However, I chose the ‘unique’ colour on the 4th row to brighten the eye look a little without distracting from the main crease colours.

Overall, I was extremely impressed with the pigmentation and variety of this palette. The only thing I would point out, however, is that the colours in this palette are similar to those in the original 35O, so maybe opt for the 25B palette if you are looking for something a bit different to existing shadows. Even though I have so many palettes with colours similar to these, I am an absolute sucker for warm toned eye looks and this one did not disappoint. After being on my make-up wish list for so long, I’m glad I finally took the plunge and add some ‘spice’ into my collection.

The Copper Spice palette is now available on ‘Beauty Bay.’ (subject to availability).
