Jaclyn Hill X Morphe

I have been watching Jaclyn Hill for what feels like years. She is well and truly an inspiration 
for so many people worldwide. So when she announced that she was collaborating with Morphe
on a 35 colour eye shadow palette, it got a lot of attention despite not seeing the colours at the time.
A few days before the release date Jaclyn did an in depth video on her palette including swatches.

A short story time for you...On the day of the release I was refreshing the website waiting for it to go live and finally managed to add it to my basket. Because of the high amount of people trying to get this palette, the website didn't quite know what to do. I had to get my mom to add it to her basket and see if she could get through the queue. Eventually my mom manged to get through in order to purchase it, which honestly took about 30-45 minutes to do. Most stressful moment of my life ... ever.

This took about 2 weeks to arrive and to say that I couldn't contain my excitement was a slight understatement. My first reaction was slightly disappointing, as the packaging wasn't as expected. In Jaclyn's video the packaging had silver metallic writing and glossy images on the back, which weren't as shown in the videos. However the packaging is still beautiful and is a minor flaw/complaint.

1st row - Enlight, Beam, Silk creme, MFEO, Faint, Sissy, Little lady
2nd row - Creamscicle, Butter, Pooter, Pukey, Hunts, Firework, Queen 
3rd row - Obsessed, SBN, Hillster, Roxanne, Jacz, Buns, Cranapple
4th row - Royalty, Twerk, Hustle, Meeks, 24/7, Chip, Mocha
5th row - Pool party, Jada, Diva, Enchanted, Central Park, Soda pop, Abyss

In Jaclyn's video she explained that each shadow is pressed differently giving them a different
texture and pigmentation pay off. There are shimmers, mattes, satins, foils and glitters which
means that there is a formula and colour that will suit everyone. If you love neutrals but want
to experiment with some colours and formulas then this palette is perfect for you. 

I am well and truly obsessed with this palette and can't wait to use it more.
This can be found on the Morphe Brushes website for $38/£29.42. Make sure
