As those of you who have followed my blog for a while will know I love Jaclyn Hill and how much of an inspiration she was in the making of this blog.
I have wanted to try out Morphe products for so long so when I found out they had started selling through Beauty Bay and now have their own UK website I bought the Jaclyn Hill palette as soon as it became available from Beauty Bay.
The palette contains 35 original shades created by Jaclyn and Morphe, retailing at £37 you are paying just over £1 per shadow and for the quality of them this is amazing!! I have been completely converted to Morphe shadows since trying this palette as they are brilliant value for money, the shadows are all highly pigmented, super creamy and so buttery. There is a limited amount of fallout from all shadows in the palette. I have since received three Morphe palettes as Christmas presents which you will see reviews on over the next few weeks.
The variety of shades in this palette is beautiful from rose golds, burgandy, golds, greens and of course matte pukey brown shades! This palette really does have something for everyone and with endless possibilities of looks. The shades also have a variety of finishes from shimmers, glitters, mattes, satin and foils.
The foil and glitter shades have a brilliant colour payoff but can also be used with fix + or a damp brush to intensify colour payoff for a more intense look.
First two rows left to right
The first row contains Enlight and Beam which are two beautiful highlight shades that look amazing in the inner corner or as a browbone highlight, I usually mix the two shades together. These shades also look amazing on the eyelid with a smokey brown outer corner, they create more of a sheen than having a glittery payoff. Silk Creme pretty much matches my skin tone so is perfect as my first transition shade. ‘M.F.E.O is slightly darker than Silk Creme so also looks great as a original transition shade. Faint is a beautiful everyday shimmer shade with a hint of rose pink reflects followed by Sissy a gorgeous pink shade with gold reflects. The final shade in the row is Little Lady which is THE most gorgeous rose gold shadow I have ever used. I have been looking for the perfect rose gold shimmer shade for so long and I have finally found it in this absolute beauty of a palette.
The second row contains four matte brown transition shades ranging from Creamsicle a warm mustard shade to my favourite of them all and the perfectly named Pukey. Hunts is next up which is a gorgeous matte warm red shade which goes perfectly in the crease with the following shade Firework a beautiful metallic copper. The last shade on this row is Queen a blindingly metallic molten gold shade.
Third and fourth rows left to right
The third row begins with the shade Obsessed is a light beige metallic shade that is brilliant for using on the lid, especially on those days you need your eyes to look a little brighter. S.B.N is a more neutral metallic copper shade this one I prefer to use with Fix+ to intensify the shade. Hilster is a gorgeous warm red brown metallic shade that is so stunning for a more dramatic look. Roxanne is a beautiful matte warm brown shade, followed by possibly my favourite shade Jacz a matte burgandy, dark red shades are notoriously hard to make and most can be patchy and hard to blend out. Buns is a lighter matte medium brown shade that is stunning as part of a warm smokey eye. The final shade on this row is Cranapple a gorgeous metallic Cranberry red shade.
The fourth row is where the pops of colour start with the first shade Royalty a deep purple shade with pinky shimmery reflects its one of those shades that looks different in all different lighting. Twerk is a stunning royal metallic royal blue shade which looks great as a gorgeous pop of colour. Hustle is a metallic cool taupe brown shade that goes great with a smokey eye. Meeks is golden metallic shade perfect for my kind of everyday wear. 24/7 is a gorgeous metallic dark brown shade that looks amazing this one has a slight amount of glitter in it and is one of the shades I notice a slight amount of fallout with but nothing that will ruin your makeup (tip – if doing eye makeup after foundation bake under the eyes so it is easier to clean up any fallout.) Chip is a matte brown shade with subtle warm undertones followed by Mocha another matte brown but this one is more opaque and has warmer undertones.
The final row begins with the stunning shade Pool Party a metallic teal blue shade that is great as a pop of colour, Jada (named after Jaclyn’s neice) is a gorgeous matte green/blue shade that is so buttery and easy to blend. Next up is my number one favourite shade in the palette Diva a deep metallic forest green shade that is so stunning! Every single time I wear this shade I always get compliments of how gorgeous it looks, especially with warmer tones in the crease and the following shade Enchanted a dark matte green in the outer corner. Central Park is a neutral dark brown shade that is perfect to darken the lash line or outer crease for a more dramatic look. Soda Pop is a gorgeous blackened purple shade and the final shade in the palette is Abyss a matte black with buildable intensity.
My personal favourites in the palette are Pukey, Jacz, Diva, Little Lady and Firework. I have included a few looks I have created so far using the palette but if you would like to know how they were created in more detail or would like to see looks using a specific shade please let me know in the comments below.
