Morphe x Jaclyn Hill The Vault Bling Boss Eyeshadow Palette - Review & Swatches
I recently purchased the Bling Boss Palette from the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe The Vault collection. The Vault consist of 5 palettes that can be sold all together or individually. I’m not a fan of Morphe shadows and this palette was not on my radar but I was in the States and it was so cheap, I picked it up just for the sake of getting something. I didn’t even read any reviews about it before but one good thing about shopping at Ulta is that their coupons are applicable on Morphe products. The Bling Boss palette was the only one of the five palettes that stood out to me. It retails for $15 USD or all together The Vault is sold for $49 USD. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on the palette.
The Bling Boss palette features 10 shades mostly in the purple and pink range. The colour scheme of the palette is beautiful. It is housed in a white and silver cardboard palette that has a magnetic closure. It also includes a mirror on the inside. I’ve used this palette a handful of times and it has gotten so dirty on the inside. The shadows are said to be creamy, highly pigmented and blendable, however, I find these fall short on these claims. The mattes don’t blend well and they sheer out. To get the most pigmentation, they apply best in a patting motion. I wanted to love Hush Hush because it’s a pretty Mauve shade but there is no pigment to it and it takes some building. I use it as a transition shade or pat it all over the lid. Mystic and Spark the reddish/berry mattes swatch dry and patchy. The shimmers are soft in texture and apply beautifully. Ballsy and Bling Bling are my favourite and they apply best with a wet brush or fingertips. Berried treasure is a black glitter shade that looks great in the outer v but also needs to be patted in so it doesn’t loose it’s pigmentation. Gem is a standout shade in this palette. It’s a vibrant violet that adds a nice pop of colour to the lids or lower lash line.
Bling Bling (silvery pink glitz)
Hush Hush (matte lilac mauve)
Gem (vibrant violet sheen)
Pizzazz (glistening magenta)
Mystic (matte blackberry)
Spark (matte ruby red)
Glitz & Glam (shimmering rose gold)
Rockstar (matte mulberry)
Ballsy (glistening mauve pink)
Berry Treasure (glittering charcoal black)
Overall, I don’t regret getting this palette because it was very affordable. Yes I wish the mattes performed better but I do like the shimmers. They are not over the top or metallic but are pretty none of the less. To be honest, there are only a few shades from this palette that wear every time I use this palette - Hush hush in the crease, Berried Treasure in the outer v and Ballsy and Bling Bling on the lid for a smokey look that is pictured above. I’m all wearing the shade Gem in the lower lash line. In my opinion, I don’t think it is a must have palette. There are so many other shadows on the market that perform better.
