One of the best palettes that I think Morphe ever came out with was the original Jaclyn Hill palette back in 2017. I still love that palette and use it regularly, but I noticed while I was curious on their website (was looking at the new palette, debating on getting it) that something changed. For starters, it’s no longer listed under the vegan section of their website. So, I went back to my original review where I had the ingredients list and decided to do a comparison as I used to include that list in every review back in the day.

Thoughts?

For starters, the new formula has only one list while the new one has four. Plus, it now includes the ingredient carmine which is a crushed bug for red pigment. Meaning that the palette is no longer vegan, some would argue also not cruelty free by that standards but cruelty free in my books applies to testing of the product not the ingredients. So, it does look like they changed more than just the packaging to match the new palette. They reformulated it, or they originally lied about the formula. I’m more inclined to believe the former, but either way it’s questionable that they would change that without stating they were doing so.

I have not purchased a new palette of this since I already have one, and don’t need two. Plus, I love the original one. So, why would I get a different palette, that has a different formula which from the looks of it is almost spot on the same as the vault collection? Which wasn’t horrible (in my opinion) but it wasn’t as good as the original Jaclyn Hill palette. I’m including that below as well. However, Jen Luvs Review did a video on it where she does swatch comparisons, so if you want to see the difference there you can.

Morphe’s Response (3/1/20)

Absolutely no mention of the fact that they made the formula no longer vegan, just that they did change the formula.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS SITUATION?
