When I first saw Jaclyn Hill's Vault collection on trendmood's Instagram, I was like OMGGG I need it in my life! The colours in the Dark Magic and Bling Boss palette were right up my alley since I don't own anything like that in my collection and I loved her first palette with Morphe. But BOYYY the mattes swatch horribly! It's not the same quality as her first palette. I'm not going to waste any time and jump right into it.

LOOOOK, it swatches so dry and chalky! I definitely did receive a "faulty" one and it sucks to say I'm not the only person since Morphe had quality inconsistency in their batches. However, the customer service was actually really nice and sent me a replacement palette.

Potion (the army green shade) is the most problematic one, no matter how much you blend it, the shadow clings onto areas making your eyeshadow patchy af. It looks disgusting right?

My Dark Magic Look:

Here is the look I came up with. I applied the shadow on a clean eye with no primer, i've heard the P Louise Base is amazing for making these shadows blend nicely. The shadows weren't so bad once I started layering the darker colours, it's still patchy but not as noticeable. The shimmers in the palette are stunning though, I would only reach for this palette for the shade Power Cut, the rest of the shadows are very ehhh.

I wouldn't recommend this palette, it's the worst performing palette I own. Even though the price point is good, the shadows are not the usual morphe quality.  Drugstore makeup nowadays is offering better quality than this, it's such a shame because the colours are so unique.

Have you tried any of the vault palettes? Did you love or hate the palette?
