Happy New Year! I can not believe it is 2018 already, I swear it was just 2008 yesterday..
Today I am going to be reviewing the famous Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Palette. You do not understand how excited I am to type that! I have been waiting for this palette since it was first announced. It was very hard to get a hold of as it kept selling out every time I tried to buy it BUT I finally got it for Christmas. All I can say about this palette is tá sé go hálainn.
Price : €45 ( Beauty Bay – Currently Out of Stock X )
This was a product manufactured by Morphe but designed and created in collaboration with YouTube Star Jaclyn Hill, who had 100% creative freedom. It took them 2 full years to create the perfect palette. This is not your ordinary eyeshadow palette, it never would be because of Jaclyn duh!. It has a total of 35 eyeshadows that were each created to be highly pigmented, to have the most amazing colour pay off, blend-ability and longevity. These 35 shadows consist of Mattes, foils, shimmers, satins and glitters.
♥ PACKAGING ♥
The Palette is inside a unit carton that has a message on the back from Jaclyn briefly discussing that this palette is her dream come true and what to expect from it. You open the carton and your palette is safely wrapped up in bubble wrap.
When you open the palette there is a message ” This Palette is dedicated to all my loving subscribers. “
It is made out of cardboard not the usual hard plastic of your normal Morphe Palettes. I wish the part where she wrote the message was just a tad bit more fancier. Some people wanted a mirror but who really uses the mirrors on their eyeshadow palettes??
There should be a piece of card with all the names of the shadows on it which I did not receive unfortunately but I have read online that many others did not receive it either. Overall I think it is simple packaging of matte white and metallic silver, could have been better but then again Morphe is an affordable brand, if the packaging was greater quality you would be paying a great price for it.
♥ EYESHADOWS ♥
I personally think it is the only palette you ever need it your life. It has neutral tones for every day looks, your transition colours, it has the out there colours for your creative days and then dark colours for night-time. The colour selection is phenomenal.
There is very minimal amount of fall out with these products, not much kickback depending on certain brushes but definitely the best product out there for fallout and kickback. They are SUPER pigmented, a small amount goes along way! I like to use my finger when applying the shimmers/foils/glitters. It is the most blend-able creamy eyeshadows I have hands down ever used, they are just a dream to work with.
I truly believe she made the perfect palette, you will have it forever because of the 1″ pan. I haven’t touched another palette since I got it, everything I need is right there.
My go to look using this palette are:
Upper Crease: Silk Creme
Middle Crease: MFEO
Lower Crease: Pooter
Outer V: Mocha & Chip
Centre of Lid: Obsessed
♥ Price ♥
Amount €45 + Shipping
I think that is a very reasonable price for an eyeshadow palette with 35 colours. It is €20 more than the original Morphe Palettes but you have to think about it for a second and realize that they aren’t all mattes or mattes and shimmers, there are 5 types of eyeshadow in there which is different ingredients and methods plus its Jaclyn F*****g Hill! It could be €100 and I would still pay it!
5/5 and I couldn’t give any lower, not in a life time. She is my idol and I have been following her for years so this is more than just an eyeshadow palette to me, it’s sentimental it is like I have a part of her with me and makes her more real. I cried when I got this palette and I wouldn’t touch it for so long because I didn’t want to ruin it, I am going to purchase another one soon just to have as a keep sake. GO BUY IT WHEN ITS BACK IN STOCK, SERIOUSLY DO IT!
My next blog will be about my new go to foundation!
