I feel like there’s always drama in the beauty world when it comes to palettes and the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette is no stranger to that. When the collaboration was first announced, I wasn’t as jazzed. I’m pretty indifferent to Morphe products and while I love Jaclyn Hill, I just did not care enough.
That is until I saw the palette itself.
Then I knew I had to have it.
So I bought two: one for me and one for you. Real friends look out for each other.
Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Overview
The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00) contains 35 eyeshadows that range from warm and neutral to some fun pops of color. The shimmery shades feel a bit more velvety and less drier than some of Morphe’s previous eyeshadow palettes.
I found that I had the best results when I used a denser brush and I really dipped my brush in there. While you don’t need to wet the eyeshadows, I love the effect when the brush is wet (obviously more intense). The shimmery shades are pretty pigmented and I was not disappointed.
Though not as creamy as the shimmery shades, the matte shades do not disappoint either. Some shades are patchier than others but overall I did not have any issues. I highly recommend going in with a light hand at first with some of the deeper shades because they are pigmented. The lighter shades are easy to build.
There is a lot of fallout with the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette. I prefer to do my eye makeup first and then go in with face products. Otherwise the eyeshadow powders end up everywhere. I (personally) don’t mind but I don’t reach for it when I’m in a rush and only have time to throw on a quick look.
The shade selection is…interesting…to say the least. While I love the shades, I can see how easy it is to just stick to doing warm neutral looks. That said, Jaclyn is a big fan of warm neutrals. For her to have come out with a palette that was solely brights would be very off.
