Yes, long time no see, and yes, I gave into the hype. Let’s get back into beauty blogging with a super hyped up palette!
If you don’t care about beauty or live under a rock, you have not heard about this. This is the Jaclyn Hill Palette from Morphe. I can go on and on about social media and controversy but let’s not and get straight to the important stuff.
Price: $38 but many YouTubers have Morphe discount codes to save you some money. I used “JACATTACK”
How many shades? 35 (2 Satin, 17 Matte, 14 Shimmer, and 2 Glitter).
I did not want to go crazy swatching because I wanted to get them onto my eyes! I swatched the first few that caught my attention.
L to R: Faint, Pooter, Obsessed, Silk Creme, Diva, and Jada.
They swatched beautifully, no surprise. I think I am obsessed with Obsessed! On to the looks.
This is NOT my go to look EVER. But since I have all these fun new shades at my disposal, I went a little crazy with this burnt orange/royal blue combo. I primed eyelids, used Enlight and Silk Creme all over lid. Next I used Roxanne in the crease and concentrated it more towards the outer corner. I packed Hunts onto the lid and blended back into the crease with Roxanne. Last, I swept Twerk on my lower lash line.
This is more of my typical go-to look. I used MFEO dusted all over lid and swept into crease. Then I packed Sissy into the inner half of my lid and Cranapple into the outer half of my lid. I blended Buns into the crease and went in with Chip to define the crease and outer V. Last, I used Beam and Silk Creme to lighten from inner corner up to the brow bone. I wanted some more shimmer so I lightly dusted 24/7 all over the lid.
I started with Butter lightly in the crease. Then, I buffed Enchanted into the crease and swept it on the whole lid. Next, I pressed Diva onto the lid. Last, I blended Pooter above Enchanted in the crease.
I wanted to do a “halo” look for this one. I put Central Park on the inner corner, outer corner, and blended in the crease. I placed SBN and Obsessed on the center of the lid. Next I took Central Park on the lower lash line, with SBN and Obsessed right in the center of the bottom lash line.
My favorite thing about this palette is that I feel like it will help me get out of my eyeshadow comfort zone. You know what I am talking about. No matter what palette you get, you always end up with the same 3 looks. There is a good mix of shades that I feel I can really do any look I could dream of!
One thing that surprised me was the size of the shadow pans. I was expecting smaller dime sized pans but they are about as big as a quarter, so bigger than I had imagined.
I do have two things I don’t love about the palette. I wish it had a mirror!! It would make it so much easier to do my eyeshadow. Also, I wish they put the names of the shades in the palette. They are just on a little card that came with the palette.
Overall, I am happy I decided to buy it when it was in stock for more than 5 minutes. I feel like I will definitely get my moneys worth out of this palette!
