I’ve been craving a pretty wide range of colors lately when it comes to my eye glam game. Specifically, olive-y greens and purple-y shimmers in a variety of variations. Enter, the 35M Boss Mood palette by Morphe. It is one of the only palettes I’ve seen that contains multiple green and purple shades, along with enough pops of other color to create a bunch of super different looks. Not to mention – the price point is pretty damn unbeatable. You know that I’m “pro-investing-in-pricier-products”, but I have to say that I really love this palette. I think you would too, and here’s why:
The 35 shades in the Boss Mood palette are perfect for fall and winter. There’s everything from gorgeous and unusual greens, dark burgundy and plums to rose, orange, and smokey brown and black. I was happy to see that the colors were unusual compared to other palettes I own, but would still compliment them, too.
I also appreciated how there was a lighter, cream color that could be used to set the lid and a couple transition shade options. Honestly, Boss Mood is just color heaven that could flatter all skin tones.
I know the shade names/descriptions are tough to read in the pic I included, so here they are listed out:
- Row 1: Light of the Party (frosted cream shimmer), Popstar (metallic gilded gold), Stroke of Luck (matte wasabi green), Express Yo’self (matte moss), Nude Tude (matte olive), Green with Envy (matte midnight green), Sheen Stealer (metallic burnt olive)
- Row 2: Stand Out (metallic bronze green), Bold Moves (metallic golden pear), Electric Energy (metallic golden sage), Hello Sunshine (matte mustard green), Play it Cool (matte caramel), Hawt Stuff (metallic copper), Peachy Keen (matte toffee)
- Row 3: Fired Up (matte apricot), Bright Eyes (metallic amber), Bossy AF (metallic garnet), FOTD (matte red currant), Talk Dirty (matte chocolate truffle), Hot to Trot (metallic plum bronze), Sparks Fly (matte walnut)
- Row 4: Confidence (metallic deep coral), Red Carpet (matte raspberry), Power Slayer (matte dusty plum), Daredevil (metallic violet), Vampy Vixen (matte brick red), Sweet Beets (matte cranberry), Color Persona (metallic cranberry)
- Row 5: Transformer (matte navy blue), Center of Attention (metallic midnight blue), Indi-glow Kween (metallic plum), Grape Expectations (metallic electric purple), Candy Crush (matte pomegranate), Sultry Ways (metallic smoky eggplant), Black Magic (matte black)
I personally love playing with different eyeshadow finishes when I’m getting glammed up. One of my favorite tricks to make my monolid eyes appear larger is to dab a shimmer that’s a little lighter then my main shadow color onto the center of my eyelid – it helps my eye look more open.
The Boss Mood palette has a great range of metallic, frost, and matte finishes that are perfect for mixing and matching in countless ways.
To me, this is the most important one. Sure, a shadow can look amazing in the pan and even when you’re swatching on a finger or on your arm, but all that means diddley squat if it doesn’t work well on the eye. All of the Boss Mood shades are what good eyeshadow should be: highly pigmented, blendable, and buildable. Honestly, out of all the palettes I’ve ever tried, this palette has one of the best formulas and the least fallout.
Sometimes I find that if I go into a shadow with a damp brush, the shadow seems to dry out and never works the same way again. Boss Mood shadows work well both wet and dry which is something I don’t find that often.
Most of the palettes I purchase from prestige brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Urban Decay, Huda Beauty or Tarte cost upwards of $40, and contain about 14 shades. The 35M Boss Mood Artistry palette by Morphe contains 35 shades and is only $24. And yes, before you ask, I was skeptical when before I purchased! I have a different Morphe palette that contains as many shades but those formulas could use some work. But I am Team Boss Mood all the way and plan to make more Morphe purchases in the future.
