Makeup Tips and Reviews: The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

Jaclyn Hill, a YouTube “beauty guru” sensation with over 4.5 million subscribers, has once again collaborated with one of her favorite makeup brands, Morphe, to come out with The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette. Hill and Morphe previously joined forces in late 2014 to come out with the Jaclyn Hill Favorites palette, which consisted of 28 of Jaclyn’s favorite Morphe shades. However, with the latest Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette, Hill, herself, helped formulate 35 new, original shades.

The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette is comprised of 35 beautiful shades, ranging from neutral browns and smoky reds to shimmery pinks and dazzling blues. The palette contains eyeshadows of six different finishes—mattes, shimmers, satins, foils, duo-chromes, and even one pressed glitter. The palette retails for $38, meaning that each shadow costs a little over $1.

As one of Jaclyn’s dedicated and loyal “Hillsters,” I can honestly say that I love this palette and consider it one of my holy-grail and must-have eyeshadow palettes. One of my favorite things is that it contains the colors you need for any sort of look. You can create a minimalistic eyeshadow look that is perfectfor school or a glam, bronze smoky eye that is perfect for a night out on the town. The eyeshadows are creamy, pigmented and easy to blend. Morphe’s high-end production at a more affordable price means that the quality of these shadows is truly unmatched.

However, I do have a few reservations about The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette. The packaging, honestly, seems a little cheap. For $38, I was hoping for something sturdier than just cardboard. In addition, the white packaging can get dirty easily. I also wish the interior of the palette contained a mirror, rather than Hill’s message to her subscribers.

Overall, I am a huge fan of Morphe’s The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette. I think it is perfect for any makeup enthusiast. If you are a beginner, this palette contains all of the shades you could ever need and they are extremely easy to work with. If you are a makeup hoarder, this palette will be a great addition to your collection. Jaclyn Hill and Morphe teamed up and successfully created a palette that is ideal for anyone who needs more eyeshadow in their life, and even if you really don’t, will have you thinking you will!
