Morphe has a large collection of palettes and after getting the Vault collection, I told myself I wasn’t going to be picking up any new ones any time soon since I pretty much have the full range of collections with the other Morphe palettes in my collection. But after seeing the Morphe 35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette, I wanted this one as well as it has a unique color range of green, reds, and plum tones. And you don’t see those a lot of the time being released so I wanted to get my hands on this palette for some interesting variety in my makeup. I love green because it’s the color of my birth stone, though it’s not my favorite color… black or red will always hold that spot.
Anyways I picked up this palette from Ulta for $24 and contains 1.98 oz of product in total. Breaking it out there are 35 shades in the palette so each pan roughly has 0.06 oz of product and costs $0.68 each. You get a mixture of metallic and matte shades in the Boss Mood palette. So it’s a good deal overall which is why I do like the Morphe palettes. However, a lot of them have insanely similar shades often with subtle differences so that’s why I don’t collect all of their palettes. But this palette you don’t have those subtle differences, which is even more reason why I wanted to get this palette out of all of their more recent releases. Plus I can use this one in pair with Dark Magic palette from the Vault collection to create more looks. Since the colors go together nicely especially with the green shades.
Unlike some of the older palettes I have where technically there are shade names, my palettes never had those names indicated anywhere on the packaging. In this one you do get a plastic sheet that sits on top of the shadows that includes their names. And with the slight upper lid lip, you can place the sheet up there and be able to reference what shade you are using for the sake of a video. But an average person I don’t think would need that, so it’s easy enough to dispose of.

One of the looks that I made using this palette was an all green look using the shades: Stroke of Luck, Express Yo’Self, Hello Sunshine, Black Magic, Bold Moves, and Stand Out. If you’re curious, I’m wearing Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Crocodile Tears and Venus Flytrap in an ombre style.
Overall, I like the palette especially as I mentioned earlier I can mix it in with other palettes that I have with Morphe. But also it’s just a great fall palette. Some of the mattes when swatched are patchy but when applied with a blending brush or a fluffy brush they don’t appear patchy on the lid. The metallics are also insanely buttery and don’t need a wet brush to get that amazing pigmentation. However, I do prefer applying these shadows with my fingers to get the biggest punch out of them but it’s not needed. The thought of a green and plum type palette initially made me think it was going to be like two palettes sandwiched together that really didn’t go together. But both sides of the green and plum work wonderfully together. Yes I showed an all green look earlier, but I was living my best life with that look including the super green lips. Don’t @ me. I loved it! And I have played with more colors than just those, it just happened to be the only one I took photos of. The others I wore during the work week while I was also wearing glasses so it wasn’t the best conditions to take photos of a look.
