Hey guys! Sorry for being really MIA this month, I’ve just been really busy with school. But I am going to try and be way more active from now on!
So today I have my full review and swatches of the Jaclyn Hill palette. I was hesitant at first whether or not I wanted the palette. I decided to wait and read the reviews before buying it. After reading multiple good reviews I made up my mind that I wanted the palette, but it was sold out! I was finally able to purchase the palette when it restocked in late September. I received my palette and brushes about a week and a half later.
This palette is beautiful. There is a wide range of shades and colours – this palette just makes me inspired and wanting to create different makeup looks. This palette is definietely more warm toned, but there a few cooler tones through the palette. There is also a nice balance between mattes and shimmers. Also there are some really fun shades down in the bottom left corner. The only shade that I believe is missing is a bone/cream coloured matte shadow to set my eyeshadow primer with. Bellow I have swatched all the colours, and included pictures with both flash on and flash off.
The formula of these shadows are amazing. Honestly these are probably some of the creamiest mattes I have ever used. The blend really easily on the eye which is super important to me. There is a bit fallout in the pan but none on the eyes with the mattes. There is a little fallout with the shimmery shades on the eyes, but nothing too bad. The shimmery shades are so creamy and pigmented that I feel that I do not even need to wet like some other shadows. The eyeshadows are just so easy to use that every look I have done with this palette is good!
Overall I love this palette. It is probably the best eye shadow palette that I own. It is even more amazing that it is such a great price! I highly recommend that everyone picks up this palette!
I also got two different brushes. The first brush is the Y6 Pro Flat Buffer. One of my favourite Youtubers, Laura Lee, loves this foundation brush so I decided to give it a try. And I must say this brush is AMAZING. It does such a great job of seamlessly blending out my foundation and it is a great size. The only issue I have is it’s a little big and awkward around my nose piercing because it’s a flat top instead of rounded, but I love this brush regardless of this small flaw. If you like using brushes to blend out your foundation you need to get this brush.
The other brush I got was the R31 Highlight Definer. This brush is pretty good. It’s a little big but still does a good job. What I really like is that it’s not completely rounded but has two sides, so I use one side with gold highlights and the other side with rosy highlights. Overall it’s a pretty decent brush and I would recommend if you like bigger highlight brushes.
And that is it for my review of some great Morphe products! Both times that I have ordered from them I have been really happy with what I got. What are some other Morphe products that you think I should try? Let me know!
