Jaclyn Hill Favorites | Morphe Brushes

When the Jaclyn Hill palette went on sale, I literally had been sleeping and got up at 4 a.m to purchase it! Sadly, the site was down. I was so confused (it was 4 am after all). I tried for an hour, and I still could not purchase the palette. I went back to bed and when I woke up again, I tried some more. Still nothing! Needless to say I was getting pretty frustrated. After reading some tweets and advice, I used a different browser and was able to purchase the very hyped-up palette.

The shadows are in a fairly cheap plastic palette, and the shadow qualities are almost the same. Jaclyn is a great YouTube vlogger, and she really does know quite a lot about make-up which is why I am a little disappointed in her recommendation. The shadows themselves are just "okay". I still prefer Make-Up Geek shadows, but that's just my personal opinion. 

I don't find that these shadows are very pigmented, and they're quite chalky - especially the matte ones. I was surprised at the quality of the satin/metallic shadows however. They did go on quite nice! They are nice colours, I am still on the fence of "do I like" or "hate". I'm going to still give these shadows a chance and continue using them, just to see if I can adapt to the different formula. Who can really complain though? I think the entire palette cost 28$! I'll provide some photos below of the swatches and packaging for your reference.
