IS IT WORTH IT?: Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Ring the Alarm Eyeshadow Palette

May 22, 2019

As promised, I am sharing another ‘Is It Worth It?’ review on the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection palettes. My first post was on the ‘Bling Boss’ palette. Feel free to click here if you want to learn more about how that palette performs.

The palettes can be purchased on either Morphe or Ulta’s website. The entire Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault collection retails for $49.00 and includes four 10-pan eyeshadow palettes, each with a different color story. The one we are looking at today, which is the ‘Ring the Alarm’ Palette, features gold, rose gold, and pink shades. If you want to purchase the individual palettes separately, they retail for $15.00.


A little background information on the collection as a whole. Jaclyn created these palettes using shadows she decided not to use in her original palette. They stayed in the “vault” and she used them to create smaller palettes more tailored to a specific color range. The ‘Ring the Alarm’ palette has a warm tone color scheme.


When looking at this palette specifically, I think she did a much better job with the texture of these shadows. They are consistent with her original palette, and the matte shades are more smooth than the ‘Bling Boss’ palette. That came as a surprise to me, because normally red eyeshadow pigment is hard to make, and can often come off patchy when applied. However, I had a very easy time blending these shades. My favorite shadows to use are ‘Lolli’, ‘Rush’, ‘On Camera’, ‘Mugshot’, and ‘Framed’. This palette of the four in the vault has the most cohesive shade range, and every time I use it I feel I have a lot of freedom to really make the look unique, yet still in my comfort zone because of the gold hues.

Below are the names of the shadows within the palette:

Top Row (Left to Right): ‘Lolli’, ‘Rush’, ‘On Camera’, ‘Boom’, ‘Alert’

Bottom Row (Left to Right): ‘Bomb Ass’, ‘Siren’, ‘Mugshot’, ‘Framed’, ‘Secret’

This palette is definitely at the top of my list of the four palettes included in the collection. The color story makes the most sense to me, and the shades individually are consistent in color and pigmentation. The ‘Ring the Alarm’ Palette in the Jaclyn x Morphe Vault Collection is worth it. Saving up to purchase this palette for $15.00 is something I would recommend to anyone, whether a beginner or more advanced in skill.
