Amongst the very few YouTubers I follow religiously, Jaclyn Hill has come out with an eyeshadow palette of her own collaborating with Morphe Cosmetics. Now if this isn’t motivating, I don’t know what is. The colors on her palette are not only colors that she uses in her looks but are completely wearable warm colors that anyone can incorporate into their makeup routine on a daily basis.
Like seriously, I use those brown tones every single day on my crease. Now each of these eyeshadows individually sell for $2.29 on www.morphebrushes.com. However, if you were able to snatch a JH palette before it got sold out (literally within 24 hours) you are one of the lucky ones to own all of her favorite shades.
I don’t think that this palette will be re sold but if it does one day, you need to get your hands on it! I’ve uploaded a picture below with the titles of each color. Specifically, these are some of my daily favorites.. Can you tell I like warm colors?!
All in all, the palette is pretty awesome. The colors are great, the packaging is chic and Jaclyn Hill is amazing so I expect nothing less. Also, her latest product, Champagne Pop | A highlighter (and also a collaboration with Becca) is already online but will be in Sephora stores July 16th. I’M SO EXCITED!

Is it though?
Isn’t strobing just a technique we all use when we’re lazy in the mornings?
If you have been on social media for the past 2 weeks, you’ll know that strobing is all the rage right now. Strobing (aka highlighting) focuses exclusively on just highlighter and illuminators as oppose to contouring that helps you define and structure your face using darker shades. Strobing focuses exactly on where the light would hit your face – in this case, it can be the highest points of your cheekbones, your nose, your temples, your cupid’s bow and even your collar bones. Although this look makes one look more angelic, radiating and glowy, I still do prefer contouring (even with the summer heat, when I have time of course).
Regardless, I had to make a video to show my subscribers what strobing is and how you can achieve it. Please see above for the video and below for a product list of what I have used.
– True Match Concealer and Illuminator
– Nars, Copacabana Illuminator
– NYX, Illuminator in Gleam
– Becca Highlighter in Opal
– Bobbi Brown, Illuminating Treatment Foundation
– Mac, Mineralize Skin Finish
Irene Sarah was the one who introduced me to the Lorac Unzipped Palette. Through her videos, I was convinced to buy it when I went to Florida because the colors were so beautiful and neutral! The palette includes 10 shimmery and matte eye shadows and comes with an amazing “Mini Behind The Scenes” eye primer.
I feel that the palette is easily comparable to the Naked Palette however, I can certainly see why other guru’s think the Unzipped Palette is better. When I used this palette with the primer that was included, I didn’t crease all day. In fact, I hardly had any fall out when applying the shadows to my eyes.
If you are ever going on a trip, I think this palette would be amazing to take– not only because of the neutral colors that would go with any of your outfit’s but also because of how small it is in size. It is light and wont take up too much room! Overall, I totally love this palette and find that I use it on a daily basis, especially for work because the colors are so neutral.
Feel free to see my YouTube video above so you can do a similar neutral look and my swatches below!
