Jaclyn Hill

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 1.98 oz.) contains 35 eyeshadows with most of them living within the warm, neutral family, but there were a few pops of color as well. The eyeshadows are supposed to have “the best color payoff” and “amazing application.”

The shimmery shades had a denser, creamier consistency–the kind that you can tell there are silicones in it–and will work best with someone with a slightly heavier hand or uses firmer brushes (I was able to use my go-to MAC 239s for the most part). If you use a really light hand with this type of formula, you just won’t pickup much product on your brush. The shimmers were quite pigmented with seven- to eight-hour wear (without a primer).

The matte eyeshadows weren’t thin but were not quite as creamy as some of the best matte eyeshadows on the market. The pigmentation varied from medium to opaque, but the majority of the matte eyeshadows that seemed less pigmented were buildable and blendable on the lid. They largely performed much better in practice than just swatched, which could be a matter of surface area (a third of the lid is far less than one’s arm) or difference in overall texture (my arm is dry, my lids are normal), even though I used similar brushes for swatching and applying.

There has been some drama with respect to color selection, naming scheme, whether the formula is different or better than Morphe’s products typically, and the increase in pricing. Here are some of my generalized thoughts:

The color selection is predominantly warmer neutrals with a mix of shimmers and mattes, and then there are a few pops of color thrown in–and those pops of color actually run cooler. While the pops of color are undoubtedly pretty, I actually found them harder to incorporate with a lack of coordinating more cool-toned/neutral-toned transition shades. I also thought it was odd not to have more of a satin-to-pearl finish in a beige color, especially given that Enlight and Beam were rather similar–one could have been more of a satin, which I think would have made it a more versatile piece in the palette. Like all palettes, whether the color selection will work for you will depend on how you expect to use the palette, whether you want it to work as a standalone palette or will pair it with other products, and what your coloring and preferences are. Overall, if you’re really into warmer neutrals, there are plenty to choose from.

There’s no reason for me to address the names as Jaclyn Hill, who is the collaborator for the palette, outlines her choices in her video here, so you can get that information first-hand if you are so inclined. For those who had no idea what the acronyms meant (that included me), M.F.E.O. stands for “Made For Each Other” and S.B.N.” stands for “Smoky But Natural.”

I’m not overly familiar with Morphe’s formula but saw such a high number of requests to review this collaboration that it inspired me to finally give the brand a try. I picked up one of their popular 35-pan palettes (35O) as a point of comparison, but it is actually their 25-pan palette formula that is more comparable with respect to ingredients to the formula used in the Jaclyn Hill palette. The lists are very similar, but kaolin is added in the Jaclyn Hill palette’s ingredient list as the third ingredient, which may or may not have a notable impact. I did make a second purchase for the 25-pan palettes to see but don’t expect to have those for a week or longer (I expedited my original order). With respect to the 35O, the shimmers in the Jaclyn Hill palette were similar but sometimes denser or “thicker” in a way–like they were more cream than powder, while the mattes varied as well with some being comparable and some being more substantial in the Jaclyn Hill palette (smoother, not as thin).

Jaclyn Hill spoke in her video (linked previously) about the price increase and said that Morphe used new machinery and more expensive colorants to create the product and that every shade was pressed specifically to make that shade the best it could be. I personally think that it is on the brand to manage their costs of development with respect to new machinery, securing time on a line, or whatever–those are costs of production, and investing back into your business is part of growing and improving your business. As far as the grade or quality of particular ingredients, I’m certainly not sophisticated enough to notice it specifically (“ah, there’s the Rolls Royce of blue pigment!”) but like most things in life, there are tiers and grades of products (it reminds me of when I learned about carpet and different pricing tiers and why).

I spoke with a few insiders and they said that it isn’t uncommon to adjust the press from shade to shade or finish to finish. I can speak from experience that the pressure used to press a powder product can sometimes impact how it performs, but it really varies. For example, MAC matte eyeshadows have a much firmer press compared to LORAC matte eyeshadows. MAC matte eyeshadows often perform much better on the lid and are more buildable while still being quite blendable, but I have encountered stiffer/firmer eyeshadows that translate into products that look patchy and do not want to blend out at all. LORAC eyeshadows are so soft that they can feel powdery, dusty, or thin, and they can sometimes sheer out on their own or melt/fade quickly on the lids, but others love them for how blendable they are, as they are also rather forgiving.

I also talked to someone who produces eyeshadow palettes about the packaging, as the Jaclyn Hill palette uses cardboard compared to plastic on the 35-pan and 25-pan palettes Morphe has in their line-up. They actually said that cardboard can be more expensive than plastic. The actual cardboard used for the exterior of the palette also gets dirty very quickly as well (doesn’t seem to wipe off completely). A lot of brands that sell at $40+ have used cardboard (Too Faced, Tarte all come to mind), but I know some people prefer plastic over cardboard and vice versa. What I found odd about the palette at this price point was the lack of a mirror and names printed on the palette (even just on the back, though right under each shade would be ideal with 35 shades!). I think there could also have been more information included about the colors/names chosen on the palette (I mean, the back of it has a lot of real estate) as a more personal touch.

Morphe Enlight Eyeshadow

Morphe Enlight Eyeshadow

Enlight

Enlight is a brighter, buttery white with warm undertones and metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation that applied a little more unevenly to bare skin than I expected. I also noticed that it always looked starker–whiter and less yellow–in practice on me (which I found odd, given I am warmer in tone!). The texture had a medium density, so it was not too thick but was more firmly pressed in the pan but still had good coverage and wasn’t powdery/dusty. It lasted for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Morphe Beam Eyeshadow

Morphe Beam Eyeshadow

Beam

Morphe Silk Crème Eyeshadow

Morphe Silk Crème Eyeshadow

Silk Crème

Silk Crème is a light-medium peach with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was good, though the soft, lightly powdery texture did not make it as buildable as other shades–it was always a bit translucent. Depending on your skin tone, it may not be obvious at all. This shade lasted for six and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Morphe M.F.E.O. Eyeshadow

M.F.E.O.

M.F.E.O. is a light, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The consistency was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but it blended out well and lasted for seven hours on me.

Morphe Faint Eyeshadow

Morphe Faint Eyeshadow

Faint

Faint is a light pink with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a moderately dense texture that was smooth, creamy, but on the thicker side, which made it a bit harder to spread across the lid and more prone to emphasizing my lid’s natural texture. It lasted for seven hours before creasing.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Morphe Sissy Eyeshadow

Morphe Sissy Eyeshadow

Sissy

Sissy is a medium pink with cooler undertones and a warmer, golden sheen. The texture was moderately dense and required a firmer hand or a flat, synthetic brush for decent application, as the thicker feel made it harder to spread across the lid without getting unevenness in the shimmer. It had good color payoff, though, and wore nicely for seven hours on me before creasing.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin. May contain: Isononyl Isononanoate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Nylon-12, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxide Black (CI77499), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI77492), Iron Oxide Red (CI77491), Hydrated Chromium Oxide Green (CI77289), Ultramarine Blue (CI77007), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI77510), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI77288), Manganese Violet (CI77742), FD&C Red 40 AI Lake (CI16035), FD&C Yellow 5 AI Lake (CI19140), FD&C Blue 1 AI Lake (CI42090).

Morphe Little Lady Eyeshadow

Morphe Little Lady Eyeshadow

Little Lady

Little Lady is a medium copper with warm, gold shimmer and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, while the consistency was dense enough that it required a heavier touch to get product onto the brush, but from there, I had no trouble applying or blending out the eyeshadow. It wore well for seven and a half hours before creasing slightly.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Morphe Creamsicle Eyeshadow

Morphe Creamsicle Eyeshadow

Creamsicle

Creamsicle is a bright, light-medium yellow-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a more powdery texture, though it was very smooth and finely-milled to the touch. It applied evenly with more semi-opaque coverage as it seemed to diffuse a bit in practice, but I was able to build it up to more opaque coverage with a second layer. The color seemed to darken and mute within a few minutes of applying, so I could not quite get the brightness in the pan to translate on the lid. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin. May contain: Isononyl Isononanoate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Nylon-12, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxide Black (CI77499), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI77492), Iron Oxide Red (CI77491), Hydrated Chromium Oxide Green (CI77289), Ultramarine Blue (CI77007), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI77510), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI77288), Manganese Violet (CI77742), FD&C Red 40 AI Lake (CI16035), FD&C Yellow 5 AI Lake (CI19140), FD&C Blue 1 AI Lake (CI42090).

Morphe Butter Eyeshadow

Morphe Butter Eyeshadow

Butter

Butter is a light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation with a slightly firmer press that made it harder to apply and blend out. It was easier to work with by first packing it on and then using a separate brush to blend out. This shade lasted for six and a half hours on me but never looked as bright on the lid as it did in the pan (seemed to have an initial fade within minutes of application).

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin. May contain: Isononyl Isononanoate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Nylon-12, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxide Black (CI77499), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI77492), Iron Oxide Red (CI77491), Hydrated Chromium Oxide Green (CI77289), Ultramarine Blue (CI77007), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI77510), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI77288), Manganese Violet (CI77742), FD&C Red 40 AI Lake (CI16035), FD&C Yellow 5 AI Lake (CI19140), FD&C Blue 1 AI Lake (CI42090).

Morphe Pooter Eyeshadow

Morphe Pooter Eyeshadow

Pooter

Pooter is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft enough that it kicked up excess powder in the pan, but it remained blendable and did not sheer out to nothingness. The eyeshadow wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Morphe Pukey Eyeshadow

Pukey

Morphe Hunts Eyeshadow

Morphe Hunts Eyeshadow

Hunts

Hunts is a medium-dark copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a mostly matte finish. I noticed this shade had a tendency to absorb any natural oils on my skin and yield a more semi-matte finish–it was just quite sensitive to that. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable on the lid. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted for seven and a half hours.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Morphe Firework Eyeshadow

Morphe Firework Eyeshadow

Firework

Firework is a rich, medium-dark copper with warm, red undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly to the lid, though I found it faded within a few minutes a bit (enough that it was noticeable but the product was still there… just not as intense). The texture was moderately dense, a little thicker but was easy to work with. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

Morphe Queen Eyeshadow

Morphe Obsessed Eyeshadow

Morphe Obsessed Eyeshadow

Obsessed

Obsessed is a light beige with a hint of warm, peach undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was moderately dense and thicker, which did result in emphasis of my lid’s natural texture when used dry. When I used it with a dampened brush, it applied more smoothly. It had rich pigmentation, though, and lasted for six and a half hours before creasing on me.

Morphe S.B.N. Eyeshadow

Morphe S.B.N. Eyeshadow

S.B.N.

S.B.N. is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color payoff was opaque, while the texture was slightly looser and drier in the pan, which resulted in some product fallout during application (even after tapping away excess). I think this shade would be better used with a dampened brush to minimize the fallout and improve the overall smoothness in the finish. The color stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.

Morphe Hillster Eyeshadow

Morphe Hillster Eyeshadow

Hillster

Hillster is medium-dark brown with warm, rosy undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin. The consistency was soft, lightly dense, but it was easy to pick up on a myriad of brushes and blend out. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Morphe Roxanne Eyeshadow

Morphe Roxanne Eyeshadow

Roxanne

Roxanne is a medium-dark brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin. I was surprised that it built up and blended out easily when I tested it, as the initial swatch was less-than-promising. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

Morphe Jacz Eyeshadow

Morphe Jacz Eyeshadow

Jacz

Jacz is a burnt brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. The consistency was soft, a little thin, and best applied in smaller areas and built up. The eyeshadow applied a lot more easily and blended out without issue than I expected, based on how it swatched alone. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Morphe Buns Eyeshadow

Buns

Buns is a slightly muted, medium reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It wasn’t strongly orange-based but not darker and redder either. The texture was lightly powdery in the pan but felt soft and blended out nicely on the lid. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Morphe Cranapple Eyeshadow

Morphe Cranapple Eyeshadow

Cranapple

Cranapple is a brighter, medium red with strong, warm orange undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was rather dense, and it was harder to apply with regular brushes, though a flat, synthetic brush (I liked MAC 249 for this shade) made it easier to apply than a regular natural-haired brush. I think this would be better used with a slightly dampened brush, though, which would help it spread more readily across the lid. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Dimethicone, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Capryl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Morphe Royalty Eyeshadow

Morphe Royalty Eyeshadow

Royalty

Royalty is a rich, deep purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin, but it did seem to fade and darken slightly after a few minutes. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and was fairly easy to work with as long as one is familiar with this type of texture (more silicone-dense). It wore well for eight hours on me.

Ingredients

Morphe Twerk Eyeshadow

Morphe Twerk Eyeshadow

Twerk

Twerk is a bright, medium-dark violet purple with cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. While not opaque in a single layer, it was buildable to it with two layers. The texture was denser and was easier to diffuse along the edges than sheer out or spread across a larger area. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Ingredients

Morphe Hustle Eyeshadow

Morphe Hustle Eyeshadow

Hustle

Hustle is a medium taupe=brown with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage that applied fairly easily to bare skin, though the thicker, denser formula made it a little harder to spread out on the lid without dampening the brush. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Morphe Meeks Eyeshadow

Morphe Meeks Eyeshadow

Meeks

Meeks is a golden bronze with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had great pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. It did have a slightly thicker consistency, so a flat, synthetic brush worked best for spreading the product across the lid. It wore well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.

Morphe 24/7 Eyeshadow

Morphe 24/7 Eyeshadow

24/7

24/7 is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a very dense, smooth consistency that had fine glitter in it. You’ll want to use a heavier touch or denser brush with this shade (or fingertips), though I used my standard MAC 239 with a firmer hand and had no trouble getting product to translate. It had a creamier feel that helped the glittery bits bind with the base color so there was less fallout during application. While worn, I did have some fallout, though the color itself lasted for eight hours on me.

Chip is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly to the lid, and I was able to build up the coverage to opaque color in two to three layers. The consistency was soft without being too powdery or dry, and it was easy to work with on the lid. This shade stayed on well for seven hours.

Morphe Pool Party Eyeshadow

Pool Party

Pool Party is a bright, medium bluish-teal with warmer, golden shimmer. It had good color payoff, but this shade faded initially after I applied it–I could never achieve the brightness in the pan on the lid, even using it damp. The consistency was denser, lightly creamy, but it still spread fairly easily across the lid. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Morphe Jada Eyeshadow

Morphe Jada Eyeshadow

Jada

Jada is a medium-dark teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was drier and dusty, and it was not just a bad eyeshadow but a terrible one. I could not believe that it would be included given that every other shade was significantly better than this one. It was sheer, and it did not build u p at all. It did not blend out well, and the edges had an oddly warmer green stain around it. It had completely disappeared within 3 hours of wear.

Morphe Diva Eyeshadow

Morphe Diva Eyeshadow

Diva

Diva is a deep, muted forest green with cooler undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had the greatest density out of all the shades–it was cream-like but very firm and “thick” in a way, which did require a stiffer brush in order to get coverage out of it. I used a flat, synthetic brush (MAC 242) to apply, and I had no trouble getting opaque coverage out of it. I found it easier to apply in small areas and then lightly diffuse around it, as it does not sheer out much if applied opaque to begin with. This shade lasted for eight hours on me but gave me some trouble with fallout while worn.

Ingredients

Enchanted is a muted, dark army green with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color payoff, which was buildable semi-opaque coverage on the lid.

Morphe Central Park Eyeshadow

Morphe Central Park Eyeshadow

Central Park

Central Park is a deep brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff that blended out a lot better than anticipated. The product worked best applied in smaller areas first, and then blended together, and this seemed to avoid some of the ragged edges that I experienced when I just swatched it on my arm. This shade lasted for seven hours on me.

Morphe Soda Pop Eyeshadow

Morphe Soda Pop Eyeshadow

Soda Pop

Soda Pop is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied better on the lid than it did swatched on my arm. I think the natural oils on my lid (my arm is much drier) helped manipulate it better, which is not always the case as some mattes almost freeze up when they come into contact with oils. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Morphe Abyss Eyeshadow

Abyss

Abyss is a medium black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff with a slightly drier texture that wasn’t difficult to blend out but was more prone to kicking up product in the pan and having a bit of fallout during application. This shade started to fade on me after six and a half hours of wear.
