Palettes -Morphe -The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is impressive as the range of shades and finishes make it a very inclusive palette; it can be used for a variety of complete eye looks, covering every occasion, season & holiday, with a variety of shades to suit every skintone - such a major plus, with including everyone with this. I have liked the majority of looks I've done to date. The blendability is mostly good - I've noticed that layering a matte shadow over a shimmer one when shadowing the edges of the eye can be iffy to blend out. There isn't much fallout compared to the other palette from Morphe that I've used in the past. To get a good idea about the wearability of the shadows, I haven't been using eyeshadow primer with this palette and found that for the most part the pigmentation is really nice and there is no fading.


However I do have a issue with the pigmentation on the last four shades; none of them apply as dark as they look in their pans, and are a bit on the patchy side. They build up okay, but still look a bit muted. The two shimmery highlight shades are very similar, a few of the shimmery neutrals aren't hugely different and there are a few warm neutral matte shades that end up looking pretty much the same after they've been applied and blended too. I'd much prefer it if some of the close-matching neutral shades hadn't been included and the 'colour pop' bottom-left corner had been expanded a bit; I pull in a mid-tone purple matte and/or a mid-tone pink matte from elsewhere to complement the three different tones of shimmery pink and the lovely purple shimmer, so would have loved to have had a pink and lighter purple and/or lilac matte. A blue matte would also have been nice, to compliment the blue shimmer.


I don't outright regret buying this palette, but I'd be unlikely to replace it if lost or damaged it, now that my curiosity about it has been settled; there has been a quality increase as far as the brand goes, but I have a few issues with too many similar warm tones, the quality of a few of the shadows, which stop me from loving this palette. Added to that is the size of the palette; the size makes getting it out of where I keep my palettes, handling it and then storing it back away, less than practical. I'd never even seen a Jaclyn Hill tutorial until after I'd bought one of the Jaclyn Hill palettes to see what looks she did with it, so having a particular name attached to it didn't influence my purchase or effect my overall opinion of it.

I'm not a fan of Morphe or Jaclyn Hill, but this is a great palette overall. The only things I dislike are:

1- color redundancy. There are too many same-ish colors, especially in the matte transition and crease shades. Also it's overwhelmingly warm toned. I wish the dupe-ish shades were cool toned transition and crease shades instead, just for variety.

2- the colors aren't labeled. I lost the little card that had the names, so I'll have to look them up to label when I depot.

3- packaging quality. No mirror, no labels, bulky and WHITE. That matte white finish is going to be a smudge-attracting nightmare if you care about the aesthetics. I'm going to depot so it's no biggie for me, but Jaclyn fans who want to preserve the palette in its original glory are NOT in for a treat.

All complaints aside, the colors are beautiful and swatch like a dream. I do not regret the purchase at all! The bright color shades are stunning. There really wasn't a dud in the whole batch when I swatched. I've only worn a few colors so far, but I have no complaints about the wear. I will get a lot of use out of this palette.

One of my favorite palettes! I love the warm, orangey/fall colors in this palette and it won't cost you an arm and a leg. I've spent money on expensive palettes that don't perform as well as Morphe. The shades in this palette are super buttery and blendable. Not at all chalky.

Makeup Brushes -Morphe -Brushes Elite Collection

Worst quality brushes I've ever tried. I regret falling for the youtube hype. These are not good brushes. The hairs look, feel and work like the £0.99 brushes you could get from eBay.
They don't even take the product, so you'll end up wasting a lot and getting 30% of it on the face. If you're lucky enough to pick some of the product, then don't expect it to any more than that. I used these brushes with VERY good products, such as ABH palletes and good foundations and they managed to make those products disgusting once applied on the face.
If you want good brushes, invest in good brands like Real Techniques, Sigma and Zoeva.

Eye Shadow -Morphe -25A Copper Spice Eye Shadow Palette

So I’ve always wanted to try the famous morphe 35O palette but never got round to it because I felt 35 shadows is unnecessarily a lot and honestly will not even use all 35 shades. Plus the packaging for the 35 range is pretty bleh.

Then comes this limited edition 25 series Palette, it comes in 2 types. 25A copper spice and 25B bronzed mocha. People say 25A is more warm and 25B is more neutral. But I think they’re both pretty warm to me. I went for 25A since I preferred the colour tones more!

I’ve also wanted to try the Juvia’s place Nubian Palette for so long but never got round to it because 1. It’s always sold out 2. It’s pretty pricey for 12 pans.

So I took the plunge and bought this 25A Palette as I’ve seen good reviews and it looks so aesthetic and pretty.

The shadows are no doubt pigmented. The lighter colours aka first row don’t show up that well on swatch but they are buildable. The other 4 rows are really pigmented and easy to swatch. I’m most impressed with the metallic/ shimmer shades. They appear super pigmented on the first swipe and the colours are great, ranging from champagne pink - gold - bronze. I believe there’s plenty of looks that can be created from this Palette.

Also, it’s a good Palette and I’d recommend it to beginners who are looking to purchase their 1st eyeshadow palette. You can never go wrong with this.

Truly is worth the purchase. It is pretty reasonably priced.

Some cons is that the shadows do have some fallout. And there’s darker colours like in the last row I don’t see myself ever using, but hey it’s good to have options!

While it’s still available, it’s worth purchasing. Though if you already have similar palettes like the 35O or Juvia’s Nubian Palette, I’d skip this they basically have the same shades.

I would recommend this eye shadow palette to anyone who wants an eye shadow palette. I have purchased many popular palettes, such as Urban Decay and Tarte and they do not compare to the quality and price of this one. Most high-end eye shadow palettes have about 10-12 eye shadows and range from $40-$60 and are decent quality. This has 35 shades and is only $38. All the eye shadows blend easily and are extremely pigmented. I have used this palette at least 20 times and I have not put a dent in any of them. Also, the colors are beautiful. I have nothing but good things to say about this product. The only bad thing is the white packaging gets a little dirty, but to me that is not a real concern.

This palette is beautiful. Honestly, the pigmentation is so there. The lasting power is SO there. The smoothness and creamy consistency is again, SO there.
This palette, it speaks to me everytime I see it. When I open it, I am inspired. When I see this versus all the other makeup launches I smile at it when I look at it. And when I see Jaclyn's message to her subscribers it warms my heart that she took the time to do that. Many MUAs only care about pushing and shelling out their products and while yes, Jaclyn hasn't been consistent factually about the manufacturing about this palette, I still believe this is honestly an absolute hit. These shadows blow me away. Some of the shades however are a bit chalky and aren't as pigmented as others, however, the shades that are, just so happen to be the shades that I'll use to blend out and go up on the crease which I don't want to be as pigmented. I love this palette. This is an HG item. Yes, the price is costlier than regular Morphe products, but for the pigmentation, colors, blendability, lasting power, the message that warms my heart, the stunning colors, it's every palette out there on the market, and it's best shades in those palettes. Purchase it, it's worth every penny.

I finally bought one of these in store after debating about whether or not to buy one. I typically don't like to buy large palettes because I am picky about colors. I figured I would buy it and swap the ones I didn't want. I ended up keeping 25 of the colors for myself and swapping the darker/jewel toned shades. For those of you who like to depot eyeshadows, this palette was very easy to depot without damaging any of the eyeshadows. All I had to do was detatch the palette from the cardboard and peel it apart layer by layer and use a knife to lift the eyeshadows which are glued to the cardboard. The pigmentation and blendability is definitely better than the other Morphe palettes, but not as good as the higher end palettes like Urban Decay or Too Faced. The matte colors still need improvement. It would be nice if Morphe would sell some of these colors as singles like they did with Jaclyn Hill's first palette.


Loose Powders -Morphe -Ultra Fine Pro Setting Powder

This is a great dupe for Make Up Forever HD powder. I use this both as a setting powder and also for baking undereye concealer and contour. I like the silky texture and the fact that it is talc free. It does not have the thickness that a lot of other translucent powders have and this is great if you only want to set your foundation without adding any extra coverage. I actually prefer this over Laura Mercier or other high end setting powders. This is a great bargain product and the banana powder is also good.

This is a good starter palette for anyone looking to try neutral looks with pops of color. The quality of the shadows is okay. The packaging is sturdy but feels cheap. On darker skin tones, some of the lighter shades may look a bit chalky/powdery. I picked this item up at IMATS, where there is a good discount but their line is ridiculous. The method we found that works is having a friend stay on the morphe line and the others shop around then meeting when the line moves up.

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!!!! My package never arrived and I have been calling for weeks. Each person says they will do something and I'll have to wait a few weeks and then I call back and they did NOTHING and they tell me I have to wait another couple weeks before they will reship the product. I have been calling customer service for 5 weeks and they just told me now I'll have to wait another 2 weeks. CANCELLED. Not worth this stress.

I LOVE this palette. I'm Hispanic and medium skinned with olive undertones (NW 33 according to the associate helping me at MAC) and these shades are right up my alley. I love the orange tones the most, though all of them are great. The pigmentation is there and while they're not as good as some high end makeup brands they're definitely a lot better than drugstore eye shadows. If I only had to pick one palette to use for the rest of my life it would be this!

Makeup Brushes -Morphe -M530 Contour Blender

Bought this because Nikkietutorials recommended it for contouring and her contour always looks good so I went for it. The brush is just okay. Thankfully, at $9.99 it wasn't terribly expensive but I did expect for the bristles to be soft and for it not to shed. It only shed a little bit at first but now it sheds like crazy after being washed a few times. Also, the base of the brush head is turning green :/ I wash and dry my brushes properly and I've never had this happen to any of my brushes except for this one and another one by Morphe - the M527 Deluxe Pointed Powder Brush. Would not repurchase brushes from Morphe.
