Jaclyn Hill released four new palettes in a vault filled of shadows that were not used in the original Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette. Each palette includes 10 eyeshadows each costing $15.00 with 0.56 oz of product. I did manage to get the entire vault, but I’m going to be reviewing each of the palettes separately. The next palette in the collection that we’re looking at today is the Ring the Alarm palette. Which is the red or hot/fiery variety from the vault.
Now this collection was due to release back in June, but was pulled before release when they noticed inconsistency in the formula when the PR palettes were sent out to the beauty influencers/gurus. Then they went back through all of the palettes and corrected them. So this is supposed to be the correct formula that’s similar to the original Jaclyn Hill palette where the shadows are creamy, pigmented, and super blendable. Which is one of my favorite things about that palette along with it’s overall color palette that can create a variety of looks for any type of makeup lover.
Here are the shade names and descriptions of the shadows included in the Ring the Alarm eyeshadow palette:
- 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)
- Secret (matte roasted chestnut)
For starters comparing this palette to the original palette, there’s a mirror in this palette so that’s a massive plus for me. Plus I love the packaging of the silver on the front with a bunch of colored spots mixed in for each of the palettes to make them stand out from each other. Ring the Alarm palette has a light orange color mixed in with the silver, to give you a hint at which color story you’re reaching for.
The color story of this palette is perfect for almost all skin tones. I don’t think this palette is the most unique since I can think of at least three palettes of the top of my head with a similar story. Along with the general amount of warm tone and yellow palettes that have come out this summer alone. But not all of those include both the gold, red, and plum tones. So in a way it’s a bit different. And I’m one of those individuals that has that evil kermit that goes “but this one has different undertones” when it comes to lipsticks and palettes. So in that way this palette is incredible since I can’t think of other shadows have these exact undertones already in my collection.
Overall, I really enjoy this palette. I cannot speak to the first version of this palette that came out since I didn’t have it. But I noticed no issues with blending the shadows from this palette. I also had zero fall out on my face and minimal kick back in the pan on the matte shadows. Which is normal in comparison to other shadows from Morphe. If you are a massive fan of warm or fiery tones, Ring the Alarm is the palette for you! What colors do you gravitate towards? Or which palette in this collection were you most excited about?
