Is The Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection Worth It? These 7 Reviews Will Help You Decide
June has turned out to be quite a big month for beauty. From the Jackie Aina x Too Faced Born This Way shade expansion launch to ColourPop's No Filter line launching, there's some major beauty launches. Another? The new Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection. With everything launching this month, though, should you spend your hard earned cash on the new Hill created collection of shadows? That's where reviews come in. These 7 Vault Collection reviews will help you decide if this collaboration is worth it.
If you're not filled in on all the details about the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection, there are a couple of key things to know. The first is that unlike Hill's last work with Morphe, this isn't just one palette. Instead, it's four different palettes featuring four different color stories: purple, yellow, green, and red. The shadows inside the palettes are actually shades that Hill created for her first palette but just didn't make the cut for the 35-pan original Morphe x Jaclyn Hill collab. Now, they're seeing the light of day.
If you love the original and are stoked about the Vault Collection, you'll be able to shop the guru and brand's latest work together beginning June 26. On that day, you've got options. If only one or two of the palettes really speak to you, they'll be sold individually for $15. If you're a hardcore Hillster, though, you can get all four palettes for only $49.
Update: On June 21, Morphe announced the release of Hill's Vault Collection would be delayed due to "inconsistent production" of the palettes. There is currently no new release date.
The big question, however, is if the collection is worth it. At $15 per palette, it's hard to deny that they're kind of a steal. Outside of the price though, what's the consensus on the shadows themselves?
1. Jackie Aina
Aina mostly the Dark Magic and Armed and Gorgeous palettes. While she did admit to have a bit of difficulty blending, overall, she liked the palettes and thought the price point was definitely right for the product.

6. Thomas Halbert
Halbert tests tons of new launches in his video, but as for the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette, it's not his favorite, and he adds notes into the video that blending took quite a bit of time. In a note underneath his video, he actually suggests shopping the original palette instead.
