Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette Review

Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette Review

The very anticipated Morphe x Jaclyn Hill The Vault Collection will launch today, which consists of four palettes containing shades that didn’t make the cut to the Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette, which was launched last year. This palette received very positive feedback from many influencers and consumers due to the high quality of the shades. Before considering buying the new collection, I was curious to try out the Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette, since the new vault collection shades will have the same quality as the original palette. So for today’s post, I’m going to review the Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette and see if the quality is really as good as everyone says.


The Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette contains 35 shades, all designed and picked by Jaclyn herself. Not only did she design the shades, she also designed the complete exterior of the palette. The cardboard box where the palette comes in is completely white with silver details. The back shows a few pictures of Jaclyn with a personal message to her subscribers. The palette has the same white exterior with silver details and has the shade names on the back of the palette. I really like that they’ve used images of the colors themselves on the back, so you can’t confuse them.


The palette is made of cardboard, feels nice and sturdy and has a magnetic close. The size of the palette is just a bit smaller than an A4 paper. Opening the palette reveals 35 pans, seven shades in five rows with a net. weight of 56.2 grams in total. The top does not contain a mirror since it would increase the price too much. Instead, it has another personal message from Jaclyn to her subscribers.


The first row contains lighter shades. These can be used to highlight, as a transition shade and some beautiful shimmery shades for the eyelid. Every shade is nicely pigmented. The mattes feel nice and soft. The shimmery shades feel insanely buttery and almost creamy and feeling “wet”, which makes them have a gorgeous, intense reflect.


The shades descriptions are taken from the Morphe website, explained by Jaclyn herself as follows:

Enlight – An out-of-this-world, universal shade for brow bone and inner shadow magic.
Beam – Amp things up with this frosted version of Enlight, it’s great for deeper skin tones.
Silk Crème – Your transitional, creamy-matte crease color with yellow undertones.
M.F.E.O – Peach, matte and cool: made for each other (hence the name).
Faint – Love this princess shade. No matter how fair skin you are, this fiercely frosty shade goes great all over the lid.
Sissy – For the rose-gold queens out there, this super-girly shade was named after my sister.
Little Lady – Confession: I call my sister ‘little lady’ and this is her second fave color. Perfect to rock at the office since it’s not too gold or out there. It’s the perfect shimmery wash of neutral.


The second row contains warm, medium shades. These can be used as a transition shade, to deepen the crease or to put all over the eyelid. Again, Every shade is nicely pigmented with soft matte shades and creamy, shimmery metallic shades that swatch nice and even.

The shades descriptions are taken from the Morphe website, explained by Jaclyn herself as follows:

Creamsicle – OB-SESSED with this flattering yet daring color. Pop it into the crease to make the color of your eye’s pop.
Butter – Super creamy with a warm, terracotta undertone makes this an amazing shade for your crease color.
Pooter – For those of you not comfortable with super warm colors, this neutral chestnut shade, named after an inside family joke, is for you.
Pukey – Yes, I named a color Pukey. My favorite matte color in the whole palette. SO creamy. SO pigmented. The ultimate warm brown.
Hunts – Linda made this daring, boldly blendable shade happen. I love it because…it’s perfect. The creamiest shade in the palette. My fave shade of all-time.
Firework – Dare I say this is the most shimmering shade? It’s great for all over the lid and for creating a warm, smoky eye. Partner it up with any of the matte orange shades.
Queen – The perfect gold. I have nothing else to say.


The third row contains rose-y, reddish shades. This row can be used for a variety of things, I think these seven shades can be a palette by itself! All the shades perform beautifully as the previous two rows.


The shades descriptions are taken from the Morphe website, explained by Jaclyn herself as follows:

Obsessed – I was looking to create a shade for the perfect smoky eye. This took forever to get right, but it’s perfect and I’m totally, you guessed it, Obsessed.
S.B.N. – One of my most-used, all-over-lid colors is this deep, pinky-bronze shade. It creates the perfect, smoky but natural look. S.B.N…N.B.D.
Hillster – God, I love this color all over the lid or on lower lash line. I wanted a good range in this palette, and this is the deepest warm shimmer we have to offer.
Roxanne – I named this after myself (my middle name is Roxanne). That may be narcissistic, but I don’t care. My subscribers know this is my favorite color in the world. I honestly use it every day on lower lash line or outer crease.
Jacz – An actual burgundy with great color payoff. These high-pigmented mattes go through lots of rounds to make them this super creamy.
Buns – This is Linda’s favorite crease color, but it took some time for it to grow on me. We removed it from the palette at least 5 times. I hated it at first, but now…obsessed. It’s a great everyday neutral shade for all skin tones.
Cranapple – A true cranberry shade perfect for all over the lid.

The fourth row contains a few pop of colors and deep brown shades. This row contains a lot of shades that can be used all over the lid, to deepen the crease or create some beautiful, smoky eyes with. These again have a beautiful formula. Twerk looks a bit underwhelming on its own however, applied with a base and/or wetting your brush before application will make this color pop, which you will see down below.


The shades descriptions are taken from the Morphe website, explained by Jaclyn herself as follows:

Royalty – I love it so much. The purplest of purples. A badass purple. No undertones. Just shimmery purple (I had to create one) that’s great to layer.
Twerk – The reason this color is in the palette? I hate blue. I wanted to be able to wear an awesome shade of blue and this is it. Bold, fun and totally wearable with major wow factor.
Hustle – For those of you not into warm shades, this is 100% cool with gunmetal, purple undertones.
Meeks – The best bronze out there (and named after one of my best friends, because that girl loves her bronze). Not too metallic, and all ages can rock it whether you’re 14 or 40.
24/7 – Completely different formula than the rest of the palette: pressed glitter, baby. Apply with finger, or a very wet brush, for a sophisticated, fresh-from-the-runway look.
Chip – I use this shade all the time to smoke out outer corner and lower lash line. Creamy, smooth and highly pigmented. Win, win, win.
Mocha – SO chocolatey and super warm, perfect for deepening any eye look.

The fifth and row contains a few pop of colors and a selection of deep shades. I’m definitely impressed by the turqiouse shades, they’re SO vibrant!. The deeper shades seem a bit patchy in the swatches but they’re definitely even on the lid and easy to blend to make a beautiful, smoky look.


The shades descriptions are taken from the Morphe website, explained by Jaclyn herself as follows:

Pool Party – My favorite pop of color ever! Beautiful turquoise with flecks of glitter may seem over the top, but it’s not. It’s super wearable (just like a swimsuit).
Jada – Named after my niece since this is her fave color in the whole world. Very similar to Pool Party, but with a matte spin.
Diva – Bye-bye Christmassy green shades. I so wanted green in this palette, but a neutral one to wear all over lids and layer with warm reds…and not make you think of Santa.
Enchanted – This deep, matte green is Diva’s (and all the other green shades) partner in crime.
Central Park – I wanted every woman and man to have the option of a cool, matte brown.
Soda Pop – We were so excited to get this color perfect. So deep and so dark. You almost think it’s black, but it’s purple. And one of the most complementary shades for any eye color.
Abyss – Matte and black as hell. One of the blackest blacks I’ve seen. So hard to make black rock, but we did it.


For the first look, I’ve created a wearable brown halo-eye look using the shades Silk Creme (transition shade)Pooter (crease)Roxanne (deepen crease, inner and outer 3rd and lower lid)Chip (deepen outer corners)S.B.N (middle of the lid) and Beam (inner corner highlight).


All the matte shade used were super blendable and pigmented. A little goes a long way. The shimmery shades were also super easy to apply and didn’t need to be wet to have a super intense reflect. I love creating looks using warm, brown tones and I know that Jaclyn is the same. I think this palette has an endless variety in creating such looks and I’m all in for it.


For the second look, I wanted to use the more colorful shades but since I’m not very good at using them, I followed a tutorial by YouTuber James Charles (video here), using the shades Creamscicle (transition shade)Hunts (crease)Jacz (deepen crease and lower lid)Royalty (transition in between Jacz and Lid colors)Twerk (all over upper and lower lid)Pool Party (middle of the upper and lower lid) and Beam (inner corner highlight).


I’m absolutely obsessed with this look! It looks so vibrant and beautiful. I love the pop of blues in combination with the warm matte shades. The matte shades again blended beautifully but one thing I noticed is that Jacz turned purple on me, probably because it was blended with Twerk (and red and blue of course make purple when mixed). I normally hate to work with blue shades but this one was very easy and intense when wet however, it was already beautiful on its own as well.



I’m absolutely in love with the Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette. The quality of the palette is amazing and I wouldn’t expect anything less from Jaclyn. You can see that there has been a lot of thought and love put in creating each individual shades. I own a few other Morphe 35 Shade Palettes and the quality is good, but not even close to how amazing the quality of the Morphe Jaclyn Hill Palette is. So if you have experience with the Morphe palettes and not liking them as much, I assure you that this isn’t anything like the other “35” palettes.

Yes, there are a lot of similar and warm shades but let’s be real, it is a palette created by Jaclyn with shades that she loves to use. I’m not complaining since her taste in eye make-up is basically how I love to use it. The only thing that I would add is a matte, creamy shade as a browbone highlight, but knowing Jaclyn, she loves a super reflective shimmery highlight so I can understand her decision completely.


If this is the quality that the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill The Vault Collection will have, I would say.. GET IT WHILE YOU CAN! At least if you like the shades that are offered of course. You can also get the palettes individually so it’s a matter of what shade range you like. Either way, I’m sure that Jaclyn has put as much love to those shades as she did with this one.

The Morphe The Jaclyn Hill Palette is available for €42,00 Euro at
