Welcome back my friends!
Ughh I know I know I’m a little late to the party on reviewing this but hear me out! Don’t get me wrong I think first impression videos and blog posts are great but I really truly like to try a product multiple times before I give a full review and express my opinion. So I wanted to take this palette for a test drive before I reviewed it. So here we go!
I have been following Jaclyn Hill for years now and I have always been a big supporter of hers. But damn girl you’ve done it again! Literally everything this girl touches turns to gold.
Okay sooo, Jaclyn released this palette with Morphe a few months ago. This amazing collab has 35 drop dead gorgeous shades that were all designed and hand picked by Jaclyn. This is the perfect palette. It has your everyday browns, your smokey eye colors as well as some amazing pop colors. The blues are to die for, the simmers are pigmented and the mattes are creamy and smooth.
The biggest thing for me with eye shadow is they need to be pigmented and they need to blend out smooth and evenly. I’m not a big eyeliner person, not a big lip color person and not huge into blushes or sparkles. I am big into eye shadows. I need my eye shadow to be the focal point of my look. This palette is all of that rolled into one.
Lets talk about the colors!!
Here is what Jaclyn has to say about the shadows…
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.
Can we just have a moment…….wow like wow. Unbelievable.
