The Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette featured in this post was purchased by me. All opinions are 100% my own.
It was a true challenge for me to resist purchasing the highly anticipated Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette when it was first released early in 2017. While I put off nabbing this palette for quite a while, I finally gave in, and boy, am I sure glad I did!
Being a certified eyeshadow junkie has never been more fulfilling than in this day and age. Not only are there a veritable plethora of eyeshadow textures and palettes available, the quality is better than ever! If you didn’t know, Jaclyn is a very popular YouTuber who’s collaborated with Morphe in the past along with Becca Cosmetics.
On first swatch, the Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette reminds me a whole lot of the textures I feel in the Huda Beauty Warm Obsessions Palette I featured here recently. That’s especially true with the shimmers, which have an unique almost spongy texture that I felt in the Sleek Makeup eyeshadow palette I reviewed a couple months ago, as well. All three companies source their shadows from China, so I’m guessing they might all come from a common source.
That’s not all that uncommon in the beauty world, and especially not so with Morphe! You know the mega eyeshadow palettes that Morphe built their name on like the Morphe 350 Eyeshadow Palette? They are great quality, for sure, and yet shadows that Morphe basically stamped their name on and exist under other brand names.
With that being said, I’m guessing the reason the Morphe Jaclyn Hill palette is priced higher than other Morphe palettes ($38 versus $23) is because the design of the palette is unique and hand-selected by Jaclyn Hill herself.
There are 35 eyeshadows and a whole lotta textures in this set. Between the shimmers, mattes and foils, all that’s missing is a matte cream shade! Seriously – I like that there are two shimmery cream shadows in this palette, but I’ve been using mattes under my brow bone more and more these days. Ready to swatch it out? Let’s go!
Overall, the texture of the shadows is fantastic and I don’t have any problems with fallout or blending. The very two last matte shades are a bit on the patchy side, but it’s not the worst case of patchiness I’ve ever encountered.
I used the palette to create the fabulous smoky purple eyeshadow look I featured recently along with this green work of wonder.
