Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks then you will probably know that Morphe and Jaclyn Hill have finally released the palette they collaborated on together and its kind of a big deal! The makeup world had literally been waiting for this to drop for months! Finally the palette was released on June 21st at 4pm UK time and it sold out in less than an hour, despite Jaclyn herself saying that they had enough stock to last at least a week. The palette is still out of stock now but Morphe have said it will be back soon so if you didn’t manage to get hold of one don’t panic just yet! The price of this palette is $38 (roughly £30) and of course if you are in the UK then you will need to pay shipping ($24!!!!!) and customs. As it stands at the moment this palette is only available on the Morphe website with Morphe themselves saying that this will be the only place that it will be being sold for the foreseeable future.
The actual palette itself is completely different to the usual black plastic Morphe palette we know and love, instead they have opted for a sleek white cardboard with silver letter embossed across the front.
When you open up the palette – which is silver on the inside – on the inside cover is a sweet little message from Jaclyn which says ‘This palette is dedicated to all my loving subscribers, xo Jaclyn’ which I think is a super cute touch.
The eyeshadows themselves are, in my opinion, absolutely beautiful. There are 35 pans in total featuring a mix of shimmers and mattes. Lots of really pretty neutral tones and then 4 really stunning blue/purple/green shades in that bottom left corner. After swatching the eyeshadows I was very impressed. They all swatch really well and as you will see from my swatches below they are super pigmented.
The swatches are all from one swipe of my finger against my arm so, again in my opinion, I find these really impressive. I will say about the shimmer shades that they are a shimmer formula and they do have a little bit of fallout which is to be expected so when applying them I would recommend using a patting motion instead of swiping across the eyelid and I will also be using an eyelid primer with these shades as well. The shades that Jaclyn has chosen to put in this palette are so versatile and it will be so easy to create lots of different looks using just this palette alone, which is great because there’s nothing more annoying than having to get out a separate palette just for a matte crease colour.
I am, quite obviously, in love with this palette, it is just crammed full of beautiful warm toned colours which I absolutely adore! If you are more into cool tone looks then this might not be for you, but if like me you are a warm tone junkie then you probably can’t wait to rub these all over your face! Well not quite but you know what I mean! I am definitely looking forward to creating lots of different looks with these colours.
