Jaclyn Hill Palette Review

IMG_1515_Fotor

As a makeup lover and collector, there is always something to look forward to in the makeup world. That is the beauty of this industry. Trends always come full circle, better products are released and exciting collaborations are established. This palette ignited that excitement in me!!! It was one of my personal must haves for the year and I was honored to receive it from Morphe Brushes. They have collaborated with the fabulous Jaclyn Hill and created, in my opinion, one of the most well rounded and versatile palettes of the year at a ridiculous affordable price.

Who doesn’t love¬†glowing, luminescent skin? I know that I do. I originally planned on selecting my Top 5 Highlighters, but let’s be serious.

There are three different types of Highlighters: Powder, Cream and Liquid.

Venus: The Grunge Palette

IMG_1931_FotorHi Lovies. So Lime Crime has released one of my most anticipated palettes of the year. They posted a picture of this beauty a few weeks ago and I instantly fell in love. After a while, in the makeup industry it feels like you have essentially seen it all, and most companies either improve or piggyback off other great ideas. This Grunge palette is beautiful because it is totally outside of the box, in a good way. I think the company took a risk on it, but this sold out palette has been on the wish list of many. One of the reasons that I love Lime Crime is because everything about their brand screams originality and brilliance.
