Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette review, Jaclyn hill morphe palette giveaway, emily gemma blog, the sweetest thing blog, emily gemma airport travel style, cute airport travel style, best colors in jaclyn hill palette,

Okay, so a couple of months ago (mid-summer, maybe?) I did a poll on Twitter and quickly learned that you all were interested in a review of the Jaclyn Hill X Morphe palette. In all honesty, I was shocked when I saw the results of the poll because there are about 2.1 million (lol, jk.. but really) videos on YouTube reviewing this palette and I didn’t think anyone would care to hear what I had to say about it. I think just about everyone loves this palette & if you are not up to speed on it – it has been selling out in under a minute when it re-stocks (or at least I know the first couple of times it did.) That being said, I never got to order one for myself because I’m so busy w/work, Luke, life, that I just never got the chance to set an alarm and be ready to order the second it went online. Fortunately, Morphe had our old mailing address & just happened to update it and get our current one so I ended up getting the palette in PR and I was SO over-the-top excited. I was anxious to try out the palette and see what all of the hype was about..

I know this is a random Sunday afternoon post but I thought I’d recap a travel outfit from Seattle that I had a ton of questions about along w/this review PLUS a special giveaway at the end of the post. I’ll start by quickly reviewing the palette:

MY THOUGHTS ON THE PALETTE

#1 All of the the colors you need in ONE palette. One reason I really love the palette is because it’s an all-in-one for me… I get so annoyed bc a lot of times a palette will have 4 great colors and be missing a couple of necessities. This palette has your transitional colors, your darker colors, highlighting shades, fun holiday shades, fall shades, glittery shades, etc. Our family has had to travel a lot the past two months and this palette has been great to travel w/ since I just toss it in my bag and don’t worry about forgetting a certain color.

#2 Insane color payoff & pigment– ESPECIALLY for the price point. I think this palette is $38?!?! I have a Natasha Denona palette that I paid around $150 for back during the spring when I had a 20% off coupon at Sephora. I literally have not touched that [Natasha Denona] palette since I received this one – this palette is my go-to now. I have seen videos of people talking about the price point of this Morphe palette and it shocks me when anyone says it’s ‘expensive’ because I feel like it is such a great deal. I am going to order a second one because I am ab to hit pan on a couple of my favorite colors (of course they are the foiled colors – SBN & Queen).

#3 Yes, there is fall out. I’m not a beauty guru or makeup expert at all. I’m farrrrrrrrr from that. However, I do get a lot of products in PR and I am product junkee so I am constantly trying products and comparing products. That being said, I’ve found that it’s rare to find a really good, bold glitter pigment that doesn’t product fall out. I  always use THIS brush to apply my shadow & always spray the brush w/THIS before I put it on my eye. I guess that’s why I don’t see ‘fall out’ as an issue or draw back. Also, if I am taking my time doing my makeup, I always apply THIS product  first because it keeps the shadow locked on ALL day.

#4 As far as packaging goes, I really like the packaging. I think the only thing that bugs me about it is that since it’s white I tend to get it dirty quickly. Like, I will do my foundations before I do my eye shadow so I end up getting foundation on the exterior.. obviously not a big deal but if we wanna be picky. In a video I saw on YouTube where someone reviewed it, they said mentioned wishing it had a mirror inside but I actually like that it doesn’t have a mirror. It would end up being a large mirror and I’d have to be extra cautious w/it when we travel.. plus it would end up having all the different shadows all over it. Fun fact: I actually  keep THIS in my purse and use it instead bc it has a light in it and it never has dust particles from makeup on it – so I can see exactly what I am doing. That is actually what I am using in the photos in the Seattle airport to get ready.

^not the best pic but my favorite foiled colors from L to R are Sissy, Queen, Obsessed, SBN, Meeks, & 24/7.

I know this is so random – but I really wish someone on YT would do a video using this palette to recreate the eye makeup look from the intro to Pretty Little Liars! I only know how to do like two types of eye makeup styles and I am a nervous to get out of my comfort zone but this palette reminds me so much of that eye makeup look from the intro… I think it is Aria’s eye. If you know are a YT’er and make a video using this palette – leave a link the in the comments so I can watch! 🙂

BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY!

So, I mentioned Friday that I celebrated my 30th birthday on Thursday. I can’t even believe it. I thought it’d be fun to do this review right around the time of my birthday & make it into a giveaway. I want to give back to you all and say thank you for all of your love & support the past few years. I constantly pinch myself – your comments on my blog, Twitter, IG, FB, e-mails, etc. have turned some of the hardest days into the best days. You all have been so wonderful to me and I am beyond grateful. I was trying to get ahold of this palette a month or two ago and was having a hard time since it was sold out. I texted Jaclyn about it and she was super sweet and was like “oh I will send you 4-5!” and I was like “umm, ok!!”.

I’ll put the Rafflecopter tool at the end of the post which is how you enter – all of the info will be there! *There will be FIVE winners!*
