Now I know I had this in my first post I did showing you my Eye Shadow Palettes but this slice of fried gold has so many beautiful shades and finishes I felt like it needed its own post just so I can show you just how amazing it really is and if there’s any guys or girls out there looking for the perfect Christmas present, this would be the best choice for the makeup lover in your life! And if you’re anything like me and haven’t started shopping yet then you’re welcome! Has anyone been to the shops since the silly seasons started?? Its nuts! People everywhere ramming there trollies to get through! I went in today to go pick up my daughters Santa photo which are absolutely adorable!! Although I feel like all the Santa’s for those photos always do that creepy as fuck blank stare in every photo. Maybe its like a must, in the interview when they apply for a job, “can you do a vague creepy blank stare into the camera, yes? YOURE HIRED”. Hahahaha!
I explained in my post how wild the shipping was for Morphe, ordering the palette plus shipping was insane. Especially since you’re ordering from America which freaks me out not knowing if my palette will arrive in one piece but luckily for me it did! Shipping didn’t take too long either, it was under 2 weeks which was great considering the overseas factor and I had to take into considering the popularity of the palette and the delay they would of had with excess orders so kudos to you Morphe, ya did good!
This palette has a range of colours and finishes perfect for creating literally hundreds of looks. There are satins, mattes and shimmers. It gives you the potential to create neutral looks and full glam looks for any occasion!
The mattes are buttery and blend seamlessly. I felt I didn’t need to over work the colours at all while blending and there were a nice range of shades to use as a base which I love! The first 2 rows of this palette I use everyday, partically the shade ‘M.F.E.O’ and ‘Pooter’. I will generally coat my lids with these shades blending them out just above my crease and add mascara and I’m good to go!
The Shimmers are stunning! I use them with my finger or just a packing brush or for a bit more intensity I will use a damp brush and they come out stunning! My favourite shimmer shades would be ‘Sissy’, ‘Obsessed’, ‘Beam’ and ‘Queen’. I use ‘Beam’ a lot in my inner corner and I’m obsessed with putting ‘Obsessed’ all over my lid (see what I did there).
What’s not to like about this palette honestly! I have nothing bad to say about it! Besides how my bank account looked after buying it but its definitely worth it!
Ive created a look using this Palette for you all to see! I did a warm toned glam look and completely stepped out of my comfort zone! I hope you all like it and let me know what you think in the comments below!
I started off by using the shade ‘Silk Crème’ as a base colour. I then started darkening up my crease with the shade ‘Pooter’ and blending it up towards my brow bone. I then dipped into ‘Roxanne’ to deepen the colour and add a rich warm maroon to it! I then went in with ‘Hunts’ and put then on my outer corner and i blended it out for a bit of depth. Now before adding my shimmer, I grabbed my ‘Too Faced Born this way concealer and put a tiny dot on the inner part of my lid and blended it out to just when my crease begins and then went over top of the concealer with the colour ‘Sissy’. It was quite bright enough for me so I went in with ‘Obsessed’ with my finger and just lightly dabbed my finger over ‘Obsessed’. For my under eye, I used ‘Roxanne and Hunts’ just under my lash line and blended it out with a tiny bit of ‘Pooter’ on my brush. I added ‘Beam’ to my inner corner to finish it off! What do y’all think!?! I was super happy with it!
So this concludes my review on The Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Palette, well it was pretty much me just telling you to buy it already because its that amazing!!!! I highly recommend this to anyone as its so versatile and can be used in so many different ways!
