Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Vault: Bling Boss Palette

This one

I’ve only used the Bling Boss palette a handful of times since its arrival but so far so good.

I really like the colour story considering the limited pans although I do think a true purple matte could have been useful to go with the shade Gem as I am a bit stumped on how to use that shade. Otherwise, all the shades are really easy to use and pair together to create a look.

The matte formula isn’t ideal, the shades aren’t the most pigmented, but they do build well and are blendable which is especially important for darker shades. You can make a really nice look but it’ll just take quite a bit of time to build and blend.

The shimmer shades, Glitz & Glam, Gem and Pizzazz, are all really creamy and easy to pick up with a brush although setting spray does help. I do prefer using my finger to apply the shadows first for the initial pigment and then apply more details with a brush though.

As for the metallic shades, Bling Bling and Ballsy, they don’t apply well with a brush at all, even with setting spray! The only way that I can use them is with my finger, but when I do, the pigment is there. My favourite shade in the whole palette is “Ballsy”. It has a beautiful gold-purple shift.

In terms of packaging, I really love Jaclyn’s white and silver signature Morphe packaging. It’s a typical cardboard palette and the mirror is really small which could be considered a con, but it’s how consumers can get it for such an affordable price so I don’t mind.

This palette retails for $23AUD which is an amazing price and can be picked up from the Morphe website (Australia has it’s own now so no more $30 shipping!)Β 

Also! be sure to use the code “ADOPTLOVE” when shopping. This code contributes towards no-kill animal shelters which is an amazing cause and worth supporting!

I’d highly recommend checking out the Vault Collection if you’re interested in any because they’re super affordable and amazing quality!
