The Most Talked About Palette Of 2017

Of course, it's the Jaclyn Hill X Morphe palette! We all knew Jaclyn was creating something magnificent with all of the social media hints dropped over the past months, and I'm pretty sure we were all hoping it would be the most 'bomb' eyeshadow palette to hit the scene. 
This palette has drawn so much controversy, (beats me why?!), but nonetheless it's been hot topic for the beauty community whether it's good or bad. 
As a huge supporter of both Jaclyn Hill and Morphe, I was pretty confident I'd be purchasing the palette. Upon seeing the swatches, like most people I just freaked out and had to have it! I did try to get it during the initial launch. I waited 45 minutes in a virtual queue and was unsuccessful and very disappointed, but luckily I was able to get it on the restock! 

The shade range is perfect for me, a large selection of warm tones but with pops of colour! I'm already a huge fan of Morphe eyeshadows, so to hear that the formula of these is even better was very interesting to me. Let's get into the swatches!

As you can see, the eyeshadows are crazy pigmented. The last four on the bottom row were a little patchy, but from a personal preference I'm not too fussed as they're the shades I'm least likely to reach for. The metallics were all incredibly buttery and intensely pigmented and they apply to the eye just as well as they swatch! The mattes are the same quality as the original Morphe matte eyeshadows, some are slightly softer to touch, but both are amazing quality anyway and super blendable.

The price of this palette was hiked up quite a bit in comparison to the usual £22ish price point, the only difference being the quality is supposedly better. Whether or not the quality of the eyeshadows is better than former Morphe palettes, the quality is outstanding and definitely worth the $38. I'm disappointed there's no mirror as this would be perfect for travelling, but I'll manage as I always do! I'm also so confused as to why shipping to the UK is so expensive? Surely such a huge company can seek out better shipping options? Who knows, maybe in the future! 

You can tell Jaclyn has put her heart and soul into this palette, everything is done to perfection and this is such a great palette to have in your collection. Whether you have one palette or one hundred, this one will definitely have a place in your stash. I hope to see Morphe continuing this great quality whilst maintaining their initial price point! 

I'd love to know if any of you have tried Morphe products? What do you think of the brand?
