Happy Friday! I hope everybody has had a lovely week and you’re all geared up for a hopefully fab weekend.
That’s right, another eyeshadow palette in my ever-growing collection but as soon as I saw this Morphe X Jaclyn Hill collaboration, I just knew that I needed it. It wasn’t just a want, it was a genuine need. I don’t have any palettes with as much of a range as this one so I was adamant on getting it.
The first time it launched on Beauty Bay, I missed it and I was absolutely gutted. If you were amongst that launch chaos and got through the other side then I hold my hands up to you because that strength and bravery deserves a bloody medal. The website kept crashing, the wait queue was hours long (literally HOURS) and then it sold out quicker than ever. To say I was gutted is an understatement. However, as soon as I found out that another batch would be available a few weeks later, I was prepared and ready with my phone and bank card in hand. This time it was completely painless and I ordered within minutes. A few days later this beauty arrived at my door and I was like a kid at Christmas.
This palette is a mixture of creamy mattes and metallic foils whilst it also delivers beautiful every day, natural shades and packs a punch with bright bolds too. Without a doubt, this palette is the most versatile amongst my crazy collection and one that I have been reaching for constantly since it arrived.
After seeing so many reviews and YouTube videos about this gem, I knew that the quality was good but I underestimated it a little and was completely blown away by just how amazing it actually is. The mattes blend beautifully without going patchy or looking uneven on the eye and the metallics are so buttery and smooth that they glide onto the eye effortlessly.
There are only two small things about this palette that frustrate me a little that I believe could have made the palette just that touch better. For one, the palette is white. As pretty and as elegant as it is, it becomes filthy ridiculously quickly and is very difficult to clean due to being made of cardboard. The normal Morphe packaging would have been much more practical. Secondly, it’s lacking a mirror big time! I know Morphe palettes don’t normally have them but I feel that it would make this one so much better as I constantly pick it up looking for one. However, I know Morphe are an affordable brand and therefore keep costs down as much as they can so a mirror might not have been possible.
Overall, despite the packaging and lack of mirror, this palette is an absolute beauty. I’m over the moon that I managed to get it within my collection and will continue to use it non-stop.
Thank you so much for reading and until next time,
