The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette is sold for $38.00 and contains 35 eyeshadows. The palette is mainly consumed up of warm and neutral tons, but there are a few pops of colour as well. These eyeshadows are said to have “the best colour payoff” and “amazing and easy application”.
The shimmer shades in the palette had a denser, creamier consistency. These will work best for people who uses a slightly heavier hand or use firmer brushes. If you use a light hand with this formula, you will find it hard to pick up much product on your brush. The shimmer shades were quite pigmented.
The matte eyeshadows weren’t thin but I found that they weren’t as creamy as some other matte eyeshaodws I have used before. The matte shadows had a medium pigmentation which allows them to be buildable and easier to blend on the lid.
The colour selection for this palette is majority warm and neutral tones with a mix of shimmer and matte shades. There are also a few pops of colour thrown in. The pops of colours are actually more on the cooler side. This palette is the same as any other palette, whether the colour selection is right for you and how to expect yo use it, if you want to be able to use it alone or with other palettes. If you are into warmer tones like me then this is a palette for you.

I am not overly familiar with Morphe’s formula. I have recently purchased two palettes from Morphe so I am able to compare the formula used by Morphe normally compared to the formula in the Jaclyn Hill Palette. The palettes I have from Morphe are the 34O and the 35P. The formula used in Morphe’s palettes are very similar to the Jaclyn Hill Palette, except kaolin is added in the Jaclyn Hill Palette as the third ingredient. I have also purchased the 35E and the 35F, but I don’t think I will be receiving these for about another week. The shimmer shades in the Jaclyn Hill Palette were “thicker” and more of a cream than a powder compared to the shimmers in the 35O.
In the video (linked above) Jaclyn Hill talked about the price increase and how Morphe used new machinery and expensive colorants to create the palette that was produced. I believe that the brand should manage their costs of development with respect to new machinery and investing the costs of production back into your business as part of growing and improving your business.
The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette is currently sold out and will be restocked in the future. Down below I have included some swatches for you, to help you decided whether or not you would like to purchase this palette once it is restocked.
