Hello beauties, guess who is back! I know, I’ve been away for a month or two after deciding to concentrate on my YouTube channel. Turns out however that I really missed blogging and have gave the site a little revamp. I have decided to make this blog and my instagram purely makeup and beauty based and keep it kind of like a portfolio of my makeup looks. So expect loads of out there editorial looks from me in the future.
Now to get into what today’s post is actually about. The Bling Boss palette from the new Morphe and Jaclyn Hill vault. Unless you’ve been living under a rock then you will know that all of the palettes have been under controversy as so many people have been having issues with them. I picked up the Dark Magic palette and the Bling Boss and after trying the Dark Magic palette and HATING it ( I will be posting a blog post on how bad it was shortly) I was nervous to try this one.
Call all the shots during an epic jewel heist of 10 creamy, super-pigmented eyeshadows.
Row 1: Bling Bling (silvery pink glitz), Hush Hush (matte lilac mauve), Gem (vibrant violet sheen), Pizzazz (glistening magenta), Mystic (matte blackberry)
Row 2: Sparks (matte ruby red), Glitz & Glam (shimmering rose gold), Rockstar (matte mulberry), Ballsy (glistening mauve pink), Berry Treasure (glittering charcoal black)
One thing Morphe definitely got right with these palettes is the packaging, I don’t have the full vault that came in a sleek sleeve though. The palette is housed in a slim but sturdy white cardboard box with pretty silver foil text and pattern. The best part about this packaging is the fact that it has a mirror on the lid, which makes it super useful for traveling.
I was so pleased to find out that the formula was nothing like the Dark Magic palette. The mattes are very smooth and pigmented, except for the shade mystic (last shade on top row) which as you can see from the swatches was very drying and patchy. The shimmers are bloody incredible, such a soft feel to them and the pigmentation is unreal. They blend out easily but do have a fair amount of fall out sadly.
To create this purple eye i used shade ‘hush hush’ as a transition shade, ‘rock star’ to create the shape of the eye look. Shade ‘sparks’ to deepen the crease and shade ‘gem’ on the centre of the lid.
You can buy this palette separately and it costs £15 which I think is a fab price for the gorgeous shades and how they perform. If you’re interested in buying you can find it here.
