First off, I cannot believe I am actually getting to write this blog post. If you follow me on Snapchat (which you totally should – UN: kimberlyygracee), then you know that I was very impatient with this palette release. I was already on the sight and ready to get it then the site crashed for a minute. After the initial issues, I was able to get it and finally get all of the pages to load in order to put my order in! Unfortunately, it is now sold out but I hear it is coming back this month.
Morphe x Jaclyn Hill: The Jaclyn Hill Palette
As you can tell, even my kitty approves of this gorgeous simplistic packaging. He would not get out of this photo, matter of fact. Off the bat, I am obsessed with the metallic font that they did of her signature. Not only is the outside gorgeous, but the inside has a super sweet message that Jaclyn wrote, thanking her subscribers.
I love how genuine and sweet Jaclyn has always been. After just one day of watching her on YouTube, I was in love. She cracks me up and she is truly talented. Of course, once seeing all the hype on this release, I had to get my hands on it. Let me tell you… this palette is worth the hype.
It is beyond beautiful and just looking at the shades makes me fall in love immediately. I am all about the mix of colors and the amount of looks that just automatically pop into my head when I look at this. It is so amazing that she was able to create something so versatile but yet so her! Even though you can probably tell my opinion already, I’ll let you be the judge – let’s do some swatches!
The shades coincide where the palette from left to right are the swatches from top to bottom. Above we have Enlight, Beam, Silk Crème, M.F.E.O., Faint, Sissy, and Little Lady. This row just screams girly to me. I could see many natural and feminine looks that would be great for weddings and other special occasions.
The next room just screams fall. The shades are Creamsicle, Butter, Pooter, Pukey, Hunts, Firework, and Queen. I love the pops of color that could easily brighten up the eyes and take something smoky a little further.
Now this is my idea of fall in a row of shadows. I live for these cranberry, maroon shades. You could make a killer smoky eye with this but you could also make it super metallic with those top two. The shades are Obsessed, S.B.N., Hillster, Roxanne, Jacz, Buns, and Cranapple.
Now this row gets into a couple fun shades as well as the brownish colors. I’m obsessed with that purple. It calls to me, if you couldn’t tell from my Mermaid Vibes makeup look. The shades are Royalty, Twerk, Hustle, Meeks, 24/7, and Chip.
Then last, but certainly not least, the final row. This features a couple gorgeous blues that I think could give an epic out-of-the-box look. The greens and dark purple combined could even bring that all to a dark mermaid look (hint for a new look I’m going for…?). The shades are Pool Party, Jada, Diva, Enchanted, Central Park, Soda Pop, and Abyss.
And that is the entire palette. I can’t believe that this is finally out and I got my hands on it. I’m obsessed with it and can’t wait to try out tons of looks throughout the year, which I plan to share with you, of course.
