The long wait is finally over when this lovely parcel arrived today. This eyeshadow palette is full collaboration between Jaclyn Hill and Morphe. Jaclyn Hill took almost 2 years in getting this palette perfect. Full video of Jaclyn’s talking about how the progress of getting this done is available on her Youtube channel.
This palette consist of 35 shades and totally brand new in term of the colour, formula and ingredients. It have mattes, shimmers, satins, foils and glitters all pressed perfectly. All the shades are highly pigmented.
I think she is very genius to have chosen the final 35 shades and formula wise as it is certainly very practical palette to have. If you are new to the makeup world, and looking for 1 affordable palette to start off, then this is it.. I highly recommended this. As to Morphe, good decision working with Jaclyn, the formula in this palette is way more better than current existing shadows. I do hope Morphe come out with such high quality shadows in near future.
Here are the name of all 35 shades (list and description in courtesy of Morphe):
Enlight: An out-of-this-world, universal shade for brow bone and inner shadow magic.
Beam: Amp things up with this frosted version of Enlight, it’s great for deeper skin tones.
Silk Crème: Your transitional, creamy-matte crease color with yellow undertones.
M.F.E.O: Peach, matte and cool: made for each other (hence the name)
Faint: Love this princess shade. No matter how fair skin you are, this fiercely frosty shade goes great all over the lid.
Sissy: For the rose-gold queens out there, this super-girly shade was named after my sister.
Little Lady: Confession: I call my sister ‘little lady’ and this is her second fave color. Perfect to rock at the office since it’s not too gold or out there. It’s the perfect shimmery wash of neutral.
Creamsicle: OB-SESSED with this flattering yet daring color. Pop it into the crease to make the color of your eye’s pop.
Butter: Super creamy with a warm, terracotta undertone makes this an amazing shade for your crease color.
Pooter: For those of you not comfortable with super warm colors, this neutral chestnut shade, named after an inside family joke, is for you.
Pukey: Yes, I named a color Pukey. My favorite matte color in the whole palette. SO creamy. SO pigmented. The ultimate warm brown.
Hunts: Linda made this daring, boldly blendable shade happen. I love it because…it’s perfect. The creamiest shade in the palette. My fave shade of all-time.
Firework: Dare I say this is the most shimmering shade? It’s great for all over the lid and for creating a warm, smoky eye. Partner it up with any of the matte orange shades.
Queen: The perfect gold. I have nothing else to say.
Obsessed: I was looking to create a shade for the perfect smoky eye. This took forever to get right, but it’s perfect and I’m totally, you guessed it, Obsessed.
S.B.N.: One of my most-used, all-over-lid colors is this deep, pinky-bronze shade. It creates the perfect, smoky but natural look. S.B.N…N.B.D.
Hillster: God, I love this color all over the lid or on lower lash line. I wanted a good range in this palette, and this is the deepest warm shimmer we have to offer.
Roxanne: I named this after myself (my middle name is Roxanne). That may be narcissistic, but I don’t care. My subscribers know this is my favorite color in the world. I honestly use it every day on lower lash line or outer crease.
Jacz: An actual burgundy with great color payoff. These high-pigmented mattes go through lots of rounds to make them this super creamy.
Buns: This is Linda’s favorite crease color, but it took some time for it to grow on me. We removed it from the palette at least 5 times. I hated it at first, but now…obsessed. It’s a great everyday neutral shade for all skin tones.
Cranapple: A true cranberry shade perfect for all over the lid.
Royalty: I love it so much. The purplest of purples. A badass purple. No undertones. Just shimmery purple (I had to create one) that’s great to layer.
Twerk: The reason this color is in the palette? I hate blue. I wanted to be able to wear an awesome shade of blue and this is it. Bold, fun and totally wearable with major wow factor.
Hustle: For those of you not into warm shades, this is 100% cool with gunmetal, purple undertones.
Meeks: The best bronze out there (and named after one of my best friends, because that girl loves her bronze). Not too metallic, and all ages can rock it whether you’re 14 or 40.
24/7: Completely different formula than the rest of the palette: pressed glitter, baby. Apply with finger, or a very wet brush, for a sophisticated, fresh-from-the-runway look.
Chip: I use this shade all the time to smoke out outer corner and lower lash line. Creamy, smooth and highly pigmented. Win, win, win.
Mocha: SO chocolatey and super warm, perfect for deepening any eye look.
Pool Party: My favorite pop of color ever! Beautiful turquoise with flecks of glitter may seem over the top, but it’s not. It’s super wearable (just like a swimsuit).
Jada: Named after my niece since this is her fave color in the whole world. Very similar to Pool Party, but with a matte spin.
Diva: Bye-bye Christmassy green shades. I so wanted green in this palette, but a neutral one to wear all over lids and layer with warm reds…and not make you think of Santa.
Enchanted: This deep, matte green is Diva’s (and all the other green shades) partner in crime.
Central Park: I wanted every woman and man to have the option of a cool, matte brown.
Soda Pop: We were so excited to get this color perfect. So deep and so dark. You almost think it’s black, but it’s purple. And one of the most complementary shades for any eye color.
Abyss: Matte and black as hell. One of the blackest blacks I’ve seen. So hard to make black rock, but we did it.
Comes in white box (with mirror silver wording) both top and bottom of the box. It have 4 photo of Jaclyn behind it, lil story about it. Inside the palette, amazing message to all her subscribers and her signature on it. How cool is that. Just like other morphe palette, it does not not come with mirror. (But, personally it doesn’t affect me)
My verdict :
Price : 5/5 (It is very affordable palette for USD38 – you get 35 shades)
Formula : 5/5 (highly pigmented and blended easily, I’m surprised with no fall out even though it is shimmer and glitters finishes)
Colours : 5/5 (Amazing colours and you’ll able to create lots of look from natural to bold eyes)
Mirror : NO mirror (the only downside of it – but come to think about it, there is no need for huge mirror anyway, it makes the palette lighter too)
Name of the shades : another downside of the palette, the name of each colours are not printsd on the palette. Not like a big NO NO, but it definitely cool to have it printed.
Conclusion : I’m Lovin’ IT !!! Good job Jaclyn Hill & Morphe.. *thumbsup*
At the moment, the palette is sold out. Morphe is working on restocking it. So, if you didn’t manage to grab the palette during the launch last 2 weeks, stay tuned for Morphe’s update on the restock.
