Jaclyn Hill is a perfectionist, and has been working on her new collaboration palette with Morphe for what feels like forever! We were expecting the Jaclyn Hill Palette to launch earlier in the year, but it finally came out June 2017. It sold out within an hour, and the website did have some difficulties. But lucky for me, I managed to get my hands on 2 – one for me and the other for my friend. Please keep on reading if you want to know more – and check out the below video to see it in action.
Jaclyn Hill Palette Swatches
I know many people don’t like finger swatches. But I wanted to show all the Jaclyn Hills Palette shades, and I find most of them apply to the eyes in a rather true to colour way. At the end of the day finger vs. brush doesn’t matter – it is all about how it actually applies on the eyes.
I am going to go through row by row the shades. I feel like each row looks amazing together, and the layout of the shades is pleasing to the eye.
The first row is full of your lightest shades. I find the first 2 to be much too similar, and the 3rd and 4th shade apply very similar to the eye as well. But all in all they seem to apply nicely.
Row 2 of this palette would have to be one of my favourites. The first 5 shades are all gorgeous matte shades, with lots of warmth and depth to them. These are the ones I have been reaching for the most. The last 2 shades are a gorgeous copper and bronze, which look stunning applied to the lids.
Row 3 in the Jaclyn Hill palette would definitely be my next favourite row. It has shades that are going to be flattering on every skin tone. They are all on the warmer side, but slightly more neutral than row 2.
This row is stunning. I definitely don’t reach for the purples a lot – but you can see them in a look I created below. The browns and golds in this row are just everything. The mattes look patchy here, but apply to the eye with such ease.
The final row in the palette is definitely my least used. That’s not because the shades perform badly, they just aren’t my cup of tea. But I have still used them in a look below. You all know – I am a neutral girl.
Jaclyn Hill Palette Makeup Looks.
I wanted to create a few different looks before reviewing this palette so I could be fair. The possibilities are endless with a palette like this – but here are 3 of my favourite looks with the Jaclyn Hill Palette by Morphe.
For this warm look I used shades from rows 2 & 3. This is really my kind of makeup look. I created a more halo or sandwich smokey eye, but you could do so much with these shades.
This look obviously has a tonne of glitter added to it. But I only used the Jaclyn Hill Palette for the actual eye shadows. I used the purples from row 4, and the mattes from row 2, to create this purple smokey eye.
This look was off to a rough start, because I am not great with colour, and I wanted to create something different to my previous 2 looks. It ended up coming full circle and I am really proud of myself. I used the mattes from row 1, and a variety of the shades from row 5 to create this look.
