Palettes -Morphe -The Vault - Bling Boss eyeshadow palette

on 11/12/2018 11:32:00 AM

The Bling Boss palette is the one in The Vault collection that I was the most keen on owning, but once I got it I was almost scared of trying it in case I didn't like it, after the backlash against the collection began. Fast forward two months of wearing every shade and my verdict is in...

In Bling Boss you get the following ten powder eyeshadows; Bling Bling (silvery pink glitz), Hush Hush (matte lilac mauve), Gem (vibrant violet sheen), Pizzazz (glistening magenta), Mystic (matte blackberry), Sparks (matte ruby red), Glitz & Glam (shimmering rose gold), Rockstar (matte mulberry), Ballsy (glistening mauve pink) and Berry Treasure (glittering charcoal black). Three of the matte shades [Mystic, Sparks & Rockstar] feel a bit dry, but still are very easy to blend out evenly - a major plus with red, lilac and berry shades, so no complaints from me. The shimmer shades are soft and creamy, except for Gem which is pretty dry like the berry mattes, but as that shade is a intense blue-based purple I expected that - but as I said above, all brands struggle with purple, berry and red shadows, so I don't count the dry formulas as a negative point.

For me the big miss in the Bling Boss palette is the microglitter-n-matte shade Berry Treasure as it is very loose and soft, so has a ton of fall-out. Then once applied and cleaned up okay it fades, creases & transfers - even with a primer that performs well with the other shadows in Bling Boss. The matte shade Mystic can also be a bit of a diva; sometimes it applies and blends fine, but on other times it can cling to skin and patch up quite a bit too. Look at the two demos I use it in; I was going to use other photos, but decided to use these not-very-good ones to give you an honest look as what you're getting with Bling Boss.


I really enjoy eight out of ten shadows and one is meh-but-usable [Mystic], so there is only one that I don't like in this palette and probably won't use again [Berry Treasure], so I'm happy with Bling Boss - it's not perfect, but for the price it is really nice. Some of the formulas don't feel creamy, but that's a common issue with berry toned shadows, it's not a Morphe/Jaclyn Hill/The Vault only issue.

Lipstick -Morphe -Cream Lipstick

I bought this in Rebound. I'm not the best at describing colors, but I would call it a medium brownish pinky shade. Beautiful color. It is a wonderful, creamy formula that goes on very smoothly. It just applies like a dream, not patchy, no drag or unevenness. Very full coverage, great pigmentation. The staying power is really good for such a creamy formula. As it does wear off, it wears off evenly. It is moisturizing, and it leaves my lips soft. Super comfortable to wear. The packaging is gorgeous. The picture here of the packaging doesn't do it justice. It looks really classy, and is heavy and feels substantial. All in all, a really nice lipstick for $9.

Palettes -Morphe -The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

I really like this palette.
Usually I stay away from large palettes but this one is a keeper.There is a nice variety of shades to choose from but It's definitely more on the warm neutrals side . Most of the shadows are pigmented and easy to blend. The shimmers are really good. I had no issues with them whether I used brushes or my fingers. Some of the mattes are chalky and a bit powdery but nothing dramatic. This is the only Morphe product I own so I can't compare to their other palettes.
My biggest complaint about this product is the lack of mirror. For the price, they should definitely include a mirror. Also the white cardboard packaging can get dirty but I don't mind. I would add that some of the shades are too close, almost identical on the lids. That seems to be a recurrent issue with Morphe.
Overall solid product. I bought it with a discount so it's definitely money well spent.

Eye Shadow -Morphe -350 - 35 Color Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette

I am a huge fan of the Morphe brand as a whole. All of their products are very good quality, and very inexpensive. This particular pallet is one of my all time favorite for fall time, there is more matte shades then there are shimmer shades. And they are all pretty much fall colors. This one as like the rest of their pallets are very creamy, very easy to blend, and very long wear. I did not have any problem with this becoming patchy nor did i find it creasing at the end of the day. This one like the rest of the pallets have just a little bit of fallout but nothing too major. I found that the shimmer shades are easier applied with a damned brush. I usually just spray some setting spray on my brush befor dipping into the pan, this also helps keep some of the fallout down. I definitely have recommended this to some of my close friends and they love it just as much as i do. I love that Morphe keeps the same formula for every pallet that they put out. I will definitely be purchasing every pallet that they put out in the future. For $24 you get 35 different shades in one pallet and you cant really complain about that. The only downfall is that the pallets do not come with a mirror, but other than that little thing this product is one of the best on the market!! :)


Palettes -Morphe -The Vault - Ring the Alarm

on 10/9/2018 9:28:00 AM

The Ring The Alarm palette is one of four palettes in the Morphe/Jaclyn Hill 'The Vault' collection, which is comprised of the eyeshadow shades that didn't make it into the original Jaclyn Hill palette.The Ring The Alarm palette contains the 10 warmest shades in the collection; Lolli (shimmering peach rosé), Rush (matte amber), On Camera (shimmering tropical gold), Boom (shimmering blushed bronze), Alert (matte deep ochre), Bomb Ass (gleaming hibiscus pink), Siren (shimmering plum), Mugshot (matte toasted almond), Framed (matte deep plum) and Secret (matte roasted chestnut).

Every shade impressed me when I swatched them upon getting my palette; very pretty shades and rich pigmentation. And my first good impressions carried through to applying them to my eyes, as both the matte and shimmer formulas are buttery smooth and very easy to blend when you prime your eyes - I had a bit of trouble with the shadows when I didn't prime my eyes: the mattes were trickier to blend out evenly, as the shadows are so soft that the pigments can layer evenly over bare skin. Also the softness [of the mattes particularly] means that these shadows aren't the best for layering; the purples are especially bad for this - they come out brown.

As I said earlier, both the appearance and formula for the shades are all great when used over primed eyes; however my biggest issue with the palette ended up being that the shade selections are a bit underwhelming. You can see the difference in shade depths between the following pairs a bit individually, but when used in looks together the purples, the oranges and the browns just muddy together. Also; similar shadows for all of the shades/finishes, except the two pinks, can be found in the original Jaclyn Hill palette and/or other The Vault palettes - in formulas that I prefer working with.


The quality of the shadows isn't my cup of tea, but I still think they are still pretty good for the price-point and the price-per-gram-of-product is great, so I'm not outright mad at the palette. However I don't think the palette is worth the full RRP, as I think the colour selection is a let-down; individually I love the shades included, but when I began to use the palette I found that there actually isn't a lot of variety in looks I could do with the palette. Plus Jacyln Hill has done these shades/finishes with Morphe before, so didn't need to do them again. I'm only going to use Ring The Alarm when I want to wear one of the pinks.
