The last time I made a purchase from BH Cosmetics was too long ago for me to remember. Since then, however, they've released so many new products. The one item that sparked my purchase was the Foiled Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette. I've had my eyes on those stunning Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows, but they are $10 a piece and those can add up considering they are all do beautiful. I figured I'd give the bh Cosmetics palette a shot since I was able get 28 foiled shadows for $12. I also picked up a few other newer items including a contour palette and brow powder palette. Here are some swatches and mini reviews:
BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette
Check out the swatches from that last row. How breath taking are those?? Overall, I am so impressed with the pigmentation and color range you get from this $12 palette. I am totally in love with that second to last copper shade and that first champagne shade in the third row. You can create some beautiful looks with this palette and the colors come out even more intense over a sticky base. I will say though that they aren't all winners, as you can see from the swatches. I think BH Cosmetics could have taken a few of their best foiled shadows and made a smaller palette out of it instead of trying to do it all. Some of them are definitely more of just satins and shimmers than foiled. But the good colors you do get make up for those that are lacking, in my opinion.
BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Contour Palette
I picked this guy up for just $14. I think it is suiting for a large range of skin tones, which is awesome but this palette is lacking a cool contour shade. All the contour shades are very warm and even the lightest shows up as more of a bronzer on my medium skin. I really love the highlighting shades. That banana powder is super brightening and I can always appreciate that for under my eyes. These also kick up quite a bit of powder, but I haven't experienced them going on patchy. Just use a light hand and blend blend blend!
BH Cosmetics Brow Palette
I don't love using powder in my brows to begin with, and unfortunately this brow palette doesn't have a shade that suits me well enough. The brow powders they picked are all too light, and the two that aren't just don't look right. One has way too much red in it and the other is way too ashy. Also, I am not entirely sure about what you are supposed to do with those creamy shades. They aren't waxy enough to hold your brow hairs in place so I don't completely see the point. I just don't think this brow palette offers enough of a variety and I probably wouldn't bother picking this up.
For the price, I think the Foiled Eyeshadow Palette and the Pro Contour Palette are really great products. If you are looking for a fun palette to experiment with, the Foiled Eyeshadow Palette has some beautiful bright shades to create fun looks with and also some really nice neutral shades to brighten up your daily look. The Pro Contour Palette is a decent inexpensive alternative to some of the more expensive contour palettes out there, but I'd steer clear of it if I had a lighter skin color. Lastly, the Brow Palette just didn't do it for me. The color range wasn't enough and I felt like the quality could have been better. I look forward to playing around with that Foiled Eyeshadow Palette more. Subscribe to my Youtube Channel because I might post a look using it.
