Hello friends! This week, something amazing came in the mail for me.
Now, I've done blog posts on Morphe palettes before, but this isn't any Morphe palette--it's a collaboration palette, designed by Jaclyn Hill.
Today, I decided to show you guys how completely gorgeous this thing is. Because the colors and consistency of all the shadows are absolutely flawless.
First, let's admire the packaging.
Morphe changed it up for this palette. Rather than sticking with their standard black and red packaging, they made this palette (and the box it came in) white with touches of silver foil. On the back of the box, you see Jaclyn herself with a little note to those who bought this product.
Now, for the palette itself...
Try not to drool too much at these colors. They're all so wearable and all so different! Even the bolder colors are surprisingly easy to wear, and that's exactly what Jaclyn wanted--for anyone and everyone to be able to wear this palette with confidence.
35 shades, 5 rows. It's time to swatch.
The seven colors in the first row include (from top swatch, down):
Silk Creme (matte)
Little Lady (shimmer)
The seven colors in the second row include (from top swatch, down):
The seven colors in the third row include (from top swatch, down):
The seven colors in the fourth row include (starting with the purple shade):
The seven colors in the fifth row include (starting with the blue):
Pool Party (shimmer)
Central Park (matte)
Soda Pop (matte)
My first attempt with this palette
Simply put, I used Enlight and Beam to highlight the inner corners of my eyes and under my brows, right on the brow bones. I also used Diva all over my lids, enchanted in the crease of my eyes, and blended that enchanted shade with the shimmer shadow called Meeks. Under my eyes, I used Queen along my lash line. I then finished my makeup as normal, but I really loved using these colors.
Overall, the consistency of shimmers and mattes from Morphe never fails. The mattes took a bit to build up for the swatches, but as Jaclyn mentioned in her video, some of the mattes require a wet brush since they are pressed a lot more than the normal Morphe shades. But I really think this palette is a new favorite, already. The pigments are so vibrant and long-lasting! It's so worth it, guys.
Thanks for reading! Which colors are your favorites from this palette?
