Morphe 12S Soul of Summer Palette – Review & Swatches

If you read my review of the Morphe 35O palette, you likely heard me raving about my new found love of Morphe Brushes. It’s a brand that has taken the internet and beauty industry by storm as of late – definitely thanks to the big-name youtubers and beauty bloggers!

I was initially skeptical about Morphe, considering the price point is so low. The 35O palette totally blew me away, so I wanted to test out other products to see if they were just as good!

P1190864The 12S palette is definitely no exception. Once again, Morphe has wowed me with their incredible quality!

The Details: 

Launch date: Fall 2015

Availability: new from the Pick Me Up Collection, permanent launch. Can be purchased here!

Price: $14.99

It features 12 shimmery, metallic, mostly warm-toned eyeshadows.

The Textures: Just like the shimmery tones from the Morphe 35O palette, the textures of the 12S are ultra-buttery and pigmented. One small swatch with your finger gives you a highly-pigmented color payoff. They have a stunning shimmery, metallic finish. This palette does not include any mattes.


The shades: because this is a summer-inspired palette, the shades are mostly all warm toned. Lots of golds, bronzes, and some peachy-red tones. The only shade that’s on the cooler side is the silvery/pewter shade in the middle photo.  This palette makes me want to throw on some sandals, a floral kimono, and go for a summer drive (which may be difficult, as it’s currently -10 celsius in the middle of winter.)

Every single shade in the palette is gorgeous and pigmented. There are endless possibilities of combinations you can create!

My only complaint with this particular palette is that the lack of matte or satin shades made it difficult for blending – shimmers and mattes work best together for creating blending, definition, and shading!

While I definitely don’t think this is one of those “all you’ll ever need” palettes, it is a fantastic one to add to any shimmer-lover’s collection!
