I did it. I finally caved. Well at least that is how I felt when I finally bought the Morphe and Jaclyn Hill palette. I have to say, I’m a little sad that it took me so long to buy this palette.
A few weeks ago Morphe launched at Ulta and I was pretty excited for it because I could try their products, get my Ulta points, and some of their products will be carried in store. My local Ulta has a small Morphe display and they had the Jaclyn Hill palette on out. It looked so beautiful that I decided to snag it up.
Now I won’t go too far into detail about the palette and the shades and all that because it has been out for a while and there are lots of videos that go into detail and have full swatches.
This post is more about the updated packaging, a few of my favorite shades, and two looks that I created from this palette.
The new packaging has a glossy white cardboard shell to make it easier to keep clean. They also put the shade names on the back whereas the old packaging had the names on a clear sheet which most people didn’t keep. They also updated the pictures on the back of the outer box. The only thing that would make this packaging better would be if they included a mirror, but I’m sure that could affect the cost of the palette.
Enough about the palette, on to the two eye looks.
The first eye look is a very warm fall inspired look. I don’t normally gravitate towards warm browns and oranges but this palette is full of them so I took that as a challenge to step outside my comfort zone.
The next look was a bit more colorful and I really wanted to use the blues and purples in the palette.
I’ve owned this palette for a few weeks now and I’ve used it quite a bit. I have to say the mattes perform so well and the shimmer shades are equally amazing. Jada is the only matte shade that didn’t blend out as easy as the rest of them. Silk Creme has become one of my go to starter transition shades.
This would also be a great palette to travel with because it has just about every transition shade you would need with a great amount of neutral and everyday shimmers and pops of color. You could really create any eye look you wanted. The quality you get for the price and for the number of shades is a steal.
If you haven’t given this palette a try, you really should. Now that Morphe is carried at Ulta you can even check it out in person.
Have a great Friday!
