I haven’t been one to fall for the hype that comes with the anticipation and release of Social Media Influencer collaborations but as the “Human Bean” I am, I fell for the hype this year, its safe to say the Jaclyn Hill and Jackie Aina will be taking my student loan coins.
Starting with Jaclyn Hill X Morphe.
I am soooooooooooooo excited for today’s post. This probably has been the most awaited makeup launch of the year, as it raised quite a bit of controversy due to the first launch, which was meant to be released in July but was postponed when Morphe found inconsistencies in the pressing and manufacturing of the eyeshadows. Some palettes were coming off great and others were patchy, unblendable, etc.
What comes in the vault :
4 EYESHADOW PALETTES:
Which can be purchased as a collection for £49 or each individual palette for £15.
So, without further ado here is the Vault (Close up pictures and swatches)

MY OPINIONS ON THE OVERALL COLLECTION
- The concept of the Vault is very creative and cute.
- The color selection is super diverse and very wearable but allows you to be creative as well.
- Packaging is EVERYTHING! Love the mirror, the names under the shadows and the revamped packing from the original. The outside is a glossy finish instead of matte like the original, which means the palette’s won’t stain on the outside or look dirty.
I am yet to really put these shadows to the test because I am saving that for a video which will be up on my YouTube channel soon, please look out for that.
