Morphe collaborated with popular YouTube beauty guru, Jaclyn Hill, to bring us one gorgeous palette! This eyeshadow palette ($38) includes 35 beautiful colors in matte, shimmer, satin, foil and glitter finishes.
The packaging is entirely cardboard without a mirror inside. Love that it has a magnetic closure and the shadows themselves are a nice generous size.
The eyeshadow colors do have names but they are not marked anywhere on the palette itself. They include a separate small card with the names but I’ll eventually loose that sucker somehow.
As you can see, the palette leans more on the warm side of the color spectrum. There are a few colorful shades mixed in for a nice variety.
I love that there are plenty of matte transition shades included. The one negative complaint I have is about the very first two off-white shades, Enlight and Beam.
I prefer starting my eyeshadow routine with a nice matte off-white shadow all over my lid area. I thought one or both would work perfectly for me.
However, I was really disappointed to find that neither of them are matte. I also like to highlight my brow bone with the same matte off-white color so I’m not able to use Enlight and Beam for that either.
I just think that they are so very similar to each other that I wish one of them was at least matte.
Aside from that one minor complaint, I’m in love with this Jaclyn Hill palette! All of the eyeshadows are super creamy in texture and are pigmented to the max.
I was stunned when I first felt and saw the shimmer and foil colors in person. They are so smooth and buttery and one light touch is all you need. They go on nicely with both a flat shader brush or your fingertips.
The matte colors are just as amazing. They are not dry and crumbly, nor do they kick up a ton of excess waste. They are silky smooth, mega pigmented and blend like a dream.
I didn’t want to buy into the hype and purchase this palette but I’m so glad that I did. It’s so gorgeous and gives great color payoff so I find myself reaching for it everyday now.
The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette sold out in less than 30 minutes during its first release. However, there will be a restock July 18, 2017 at 8am PDT. Make sure you get on the website at that time cause I have a feeling it will sell out fast again.
