Morphe X Jaclyn Hill

December 19, 2017

The moment I heard this palette was happening I needed it. I've been a subscriber and supporter of Jaclyn Hill for years. Her work ethic, view on family and life in general is fantastic. Particularly on Youtube there seems to be a lot of animosity and constant scrutiny of the 'Influencers.' All I've ever seen in Jaclyn is a woman who loves what she does, like very human has her bad days and keeps it real and honest. For no other reason than that I would've bought her collaboration with Morphe. Though that fact that this palette looks stunning really does help.  

I haven't been a user of Morphe for a long time but I've tried the 350 and the 350S (review here) palette and loved both of them. They're incredibly pigmented and blendable but without question the best part is the price. You get 35 eyeshadows for £23 pounds! The Jaclyn Hill collaboration is a little more expensive at £37 pounds but the quality is even better, therefore in my opinion it's worth the price.  

The one thing that I don't like about this palette is the packaging. It's beautiful don't get me wrong but it gets mucky so easy. The other Morphe palettes come in black plastic packaging which is far more durable and hardwearing. After having the Jaclyn Hill palette for a few months mine is already covered in mucky marks and fingerprints. 

Without question my favourite shades in the palette are the red warm tones. I haven't played much with the colours but I have dabbled with the purple. I love this shade across the lid and blended out into and orange/yellow. It looks like a sunset. I think the overall colour story of this palette is great. There's something for everyone, the neutral lover (me) or those that like a little more colour. I think one of my New Years Resolutions should be to inject more colour into my looks...

Have you tried the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette?

What did you think?

Thank-you for reading,
