I am an absolute sucker for eyeshadow palettes. Show me a palette in neutrals and it’ll be on my dressing table in 10 seconds flat. This palette is a little outside my usual comfort zone but it is just so stunningly pretty that I couldn’t resist (I tried!).

The Product – BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Palette ($22.95 USD)

I actually purchased this palette from a little store called My Cube in the Myer Centre in Brisbane, so I paid a little more than the RRP of $23 USD….but it was worth it! It caught my eye one day and I thought about it so much that I just had to go back and buy it. I mean, a space-themed eyeshadow palette, who could walk past that?

The palette itself contains 18 shimmery, baked eyeshadows, all with space-themed names. There are a range of colours but the main themes are blue, orange, brown and purple. They aren’t colours that I would usually go for but they are just stunning to look at. The colour payoff is also pretty amazing, you really only need a tiny bit of shadow. The only downside would be the fallout, which is minor but still pretty annoying. My favourite shades would have to be Milky Way (a shimmery white-pink), Mars (a bold orange), Pluto (a black-purple) and Sun (a red-gold shimmer) but I love every single shade in the palette. I also think the palette itself is great, very sturdy with a decent sized mirror. I do feel like the shadows wouldn’t travel well, they do seem a little delicate and prone to smashing, but I’m more than happy to give this palette a permanent home on my dressing table.

BH Cosmetics 10 Piece Sculpt and Blend Brush Set

It’s been a while since I purchased new makeup brushes, so a few weeks back I decided to place an order for some new ones! BHCosmetics is a go-to website for me when it comes to makeup brushes. I’ve ordered several sets from this brand, and I’m in love with everyone one of them! BHCosmetics brushes are a staple in my everyday makeup routine, so I was excited to see how the BHCosmetics 10 Piece Sculpt and Blend Brush Set compared to the other sets I’ve tried and love.
The set comes with five larger brushes. (L-R) The Angled Blending Face Brush, the Round Blending Face Brush, the Angled Contouring Face Brush, the Tapered Contouring Face Brush, and the Flat Blending Face Brush are all included in the set. If you’re big on contouring, these five brushes are things you should have in your makeup routine. Each brush is dense, but not so dense that they’re stiff. The brushes are also super soft, which makes blending in product super easy. I love using these on myself, as well as my clients.
The set also comes with five smaller brushes. (Top to bottom) The Small Tapered Contouring Face Brush, the Small Angled Contouring Face Brush, the Small Flat Blending Face Brush, the Small Round Blending Face Brush, and the Small Angled Blending Face Brush are also included in the set. These are suppose to be used to contour smaller areas of the face, which I love using them for, but I also use them for things such as applying concealer! When I work with clients, I use brushes/tools to apply everything, and these are perfect for applying concealer anywhere on the face! They’re dense enough to pack on a lot of product, but soft enough to blend the product in well. These are a staple for myself as well as for clients!
This brush set retails for $29.95 on BHCosmetics website, but its almost always on sale. I purchased mine for $19.95 (on sale). These are perfect for personal or freelance makeup artistry use, and they are super affordable, which makes them even more amazing. Also, I’ve only had these brushes a few weeks, but I haven’t noticed any shedding with me constantly using/washing them. I’ve had most of my BHCosmetics brushes for close to two years, and they’re still in amazing condition! If you’re looking for great, affordable brushes, definitely check these out!

Guys, I think I am in love.

I have discovered an AWESOME website. It is called BH Cosmetics… I recently ordered the ’10pc pop art’ brush set. I was weary, because I am so content with my M.A.C and Sigma brushes! But, let’s get real, they are GREAT, HOLY GRAIL brushes…. SERIOUSLY but who is going to pay $30 for an eyeshadow brush other than me, and other Makeup Artists? The answer… only crazy people.

 

 

I just received my BH package that included the ‘Pop Art’ brush set, an eyeshadow palette, and a brow gel (because who isn’t up for trying new makeup?) Let me tell y’all, I LOVE IT!!!! My brushes are synthetic, which is ok since every makeup artist needs some synthetic brushes and some natural brushes in my opinion. They are colorful, but seem to be good quality and they come in
a super cute striped case. I am impressed, and the AWESOME part of the AWESOME website is that I paid like $15.00 for the brushes.

 

The brow gel and the eyeshadow palette were also impressive. The color options that I got with the ‘fifth edition’ eye shadow palette were great. I liked the variations of pinks, neutrals and browns so much that I just ordered another one for my bridal kit. As for the brow gel, it matched my current liner almost perfectly, went on silky smooth, and (DRUMROLL PLEASE) stayed on ALL DAY. FYI I paid $5.50 for it. SAY WHAATTT? I know, it’s crazy. But it’s true! I wouldn’t lie to you all.

 

 

 

So my conclusion is, go give it a try!

I’ve finally gotten my tiny mittens on this palette, I have been lusting for it forever!

For some reason I imagined the ordering process from BH Cosmetics to be more difficult being an American site and all … But I must say it was so simple and so quick, so kudos BH Cosmetics! Missy Lynn is a well known YouTube makeup guru from the States. Not only is she an amazing Makeup Guru but also an active military member. Talk about multitasking! This palette features 6 eyeshadows and 2 highlighting powders ranging from warm browns to rose golds complementing every skin tone.

Going for the optics first, how pretty is the packaging?! The whole palette is not too small or too big and comes with its own mirror making it perfect for those on the go and busy bees! There’s a nice little quote underneath the picture ‘Start with Confidence, Finish with Success’ which I think is a nice little touch. Also note the military theme with the dog tag…
*As you can see I also purchased BH Cosmetics HD Brow Pencil. Do let me know if you want an individual review on this product. What I like most about it is that it comes with a tiny brush*
As you know I’m a multi purpose user. The 4 shades are eyeshadows BUT I have used the slight peachy shade ( 1st from left, second row) for my cheekbones. It really reminds me of Sleek’s Sahara Cheek Colour. In fact, I think most of the 6 shades can be used as either eyeshadow, cheek colours or highlighters…okay perhaps not the purple and the deep purple shade….
The colours are stunning and suitable for every skin tone. I never want to say ‘oh this shade is perfect for dark skin girls’ etc. but undoubtedly Missy picked these colours with WOC in mind while still making these shades universal and suitable for all skin shades.
Both Highlighting colours are divine and perfect for summer. I can just see myself dabbing a bit of the more golden highlighter at the top of my cheekbones for that extra bit of golden glow look this summer!
Some swatches, as you can see the colours are very pigmented and soft. My personal faves are the bronze / golden shades in the palette.
It really says something for Bloggers / YouTubers to get the chance to create makeup, Missy is only paving the way for more darker skinned YouTubers and Bloggers yet to come! YouTubers have such a massive audience that it only makes sense to get their input. With more and more new makeup releases it’s nice to know that WOC are heard and are given the chance to create such stunning items.
You can get your BH Palette directly from BH Cosmetics. It’s currently priced at only 8.99$ + an extra 8$ for shipping. I remember ordering it during the weekend and arriving mid-week (Wednesday I think so the postage was fairly quick!)
Do let me know your thoughts on this palette & what do you think of YouTubers bringing out their own line of cosmetics / having a say in make up being created or selected?

BH Cosmetics 10 Color Palette Professional Blush

If you are in need for some beautiful blushes, but don´t want to spend a lot: the BH Cosmetics Professional Blush palette is pure perfection! The blushes are super blend-able, very pigmented and include 10 super gorgeous colors: from a bright pink to a coral- all in there.

There is only 2 colors in the palette that I don´t reach for as they seem too light for my skin, but you could actually use these as a highlighter! I find that these blushes apply as beautiful as way more expensive high end makeup brands and highly recommend this palette.

I go as far as to say: if you have this blush palette, you don´t NEED any other blush (but of course you might WANT still more lol).

You may have seen some of these pretty palettes in recent tutorials on my YouTube channel. I have been having so much fun with playing with all the color, I haven’t yet given them the proper review they deserve. This was my first time trying BH Cosmetics and I was definitely not disappointed. The first thing is the colors are both pigmented and buildable depending on the shade, and the price point can’t be beat.

60 Color BH Day & Night Palette: This eye shadow palette covers everything you need for day to day life. The lighter more matte colors, which are organized on one side are perfect for all kinds of day looks, and the darker more shimmery shades on the other side are great for going out at night. The lighter/matte shades are that ones that are the most buildable and the darker/shimmery shades are the most pigmented. I have created countless looks with this palette from simple natural to super smokey eyes, and for $12 you really can’t beat it. If you can only afford one palette, I highly recommend this.

Glamorous Blush Palette: Like the shadow palette I will say, if you are on a budget I recommend getting this 10 color palette. From peach to deep berry, this covers everything you could possibly need for whatever look or skin tone you need to accommodate. The color is pigmented, long lasting and I cannot speak highly enough about it.

10pc. Pop Art Brush Set: I really didn’t know what to expect with this set. So often I have tried inexpensive makeup brushes and been disappointed, but I loved the variety this set offered so I decided to give it a try. Like all of the other products I was pleasantly that these are great for the price point. They distribute color and blend as well as other brushes I have that cost twice as much. The shadow blender with the blue hand is definitely my favorite.

Correcting Eye Primer: This primer does what a primer is supposed to do, it helps the shadow stay put longer and it also makes the color appear more pigmented on the lid. This does both of those things, however I will say it only lasts about 8 hours which works great for me on normal days, just not on long shooting days. They have another primer that is their Studio Pro Primer that may last a bit longer. I am going to probably try that next and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

Overall these products I tried get two thumbs up, great quality at an amazing price! Have you guys tried BH Cosmetics? I’d love to hear what you think! If you create looks with these products tag me on Instagram so I can see!

Hi Dolls!

A few weeks ago I went to Missy Lynn’s launch party for her beautiful new palette with BH Cosmetics! I was excited to leave with a palette and try it out since she’s one of the few YouTubers I know with almost the same complexion as me – her palette is supposed to be amazing on all colors and complexions though! I kept swatching it during the party and was falling in love with the two baked highlighters in the palette but now that I’ve actually dug into the colors too, I just loveee all of it!! I have a full face tutorial for you guys today using it, let me know what you think!

BH Cosmetics

I am asked often about my makeup and what products, palettes, and brushes I use. BH Cosmetics is definitely one of my go-to brands for my everyday makeup. All their products are super affordable and they always have gorgeous packaging! Today I’ll be showing you some of my favorite palettes and brushes from BH that are my go-to’s.

First are these three amazing new palettes from BH. (I’ll go into more depth as you scroll through the photos.) These three palettes get the job done wether you’re doing a neutral eye, a smokey eye, contouring, highlighting, you name it and these three palettes can do it.

My everyday eye look is created using the new MakeupbyMandy24 palette. It has 6 gorgeous neutral colors and it also comes with an eyeliner pen. If you’re looking for a palette to do a neutral eye and also to give you that perfect winged eyeliner then this palette has you covered! I love how creative BH got with this palette by putting an eyeliner pen [instead of a brush, which we all have millions of] inside the palette. Usually when I get a brush from a palette I hardly use it because I have a million other brushes, so that’s why I really like this palette because you definitely get full use out of the whole thing AND it’s less than $10! That’s insanely cheap for a palette you would be able to use every day.

My next everyday palette is the Wild Child eyeshadow palette. This palette comes with 6 metallic colors, some dark and some light. With this palette I usually create a dark brown smokey eye or I brighten my eyes up with the coral and pink. There are a million eye looks you can create with this palette but those are the two main looks I do.

I seriously love the name of this palette, Forever Nude. So cute right?! Love it! Besides the name, this palette really does it all for your highlight and contour. I love how the contour shades are more of a grey undertone instead of an orange undertone because the hollows [shadows] of your checks are naturally more grey/brown rather than orange. In this palette there’s also a yellow shade for your under eye highlight, and a highlight shade for the tops of your checks. Seriously I am in love with this palette! I’ve never found anything else that is as affordable as this palette and that has everything needed for highlighting and contouring.

Lastly are these AMAZING brushes. I don’t know how I was living without these. They make putting on foundation, powder, and eyeshadow so much easier! I love my beauty blender, but when I want more of a coverage I use these brushes.

what’s in the box?!?

I am a HUGE fan of BH Cosmetics baked eye shadows, so when I received this package I was ecstatic! Their Galaxy Chic palette was already one of my favs (check out my Fall Glam tutorial on youtube using that palette) and I think these new palettes will be my new favorites as well. All swatches below, and all swatches on my blog, are applied without a base. Color payoff is always greater with a base, so I like to swatch without so that you can see the payoff straight from the pan. All of these palettes are currently on sale for $9.95.

They also included some of their 3-in-1 Blooming Radiance Mineral Foundation Powders. You can use them to conceal, set, or as foundation. There is a hint of shimmer in the powder though it may not be visible in the swatch, with the purpose to make the skin look ‘radiant.’ The best part is all of their shades are currently on sale for $7.50, so you could easily stock up on a few and still spend less than you would for one shade of an expensive brand!

Lastly, a double-sided brow highlighter in matte and shimmer, self explanatory. This jumbo pencil is also currently on sale for $7.95!

All of these items can be purchased at BHCosmetics.com. Makeup looks with the baked shadows will be posted on my Instagram page really soon! :)

My Top 5 BH Products

When I was first getting into makeup, BH Cosmetics was one of the first brands I played around with. The vibrant palettes that contained every color of the rainbow were a feast for both the eyes and for the makeup junkie. One couldn’t resist! Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of trying out more than just their palettes. Listed below are five favorites I’ve rounded up– I hope you enjoy!

Flawless Brow Trio

This is my go-to everyday brow product. The palette comes with two brow powders, a wax, and a handy dual ended brush. When I say this thing will not budge on your brows, I mean it! No eyebrow gel is necessary because you already have the wax, but even without the wax the powders won’t slip and slide.

10 Piece Eco Brush Set

Some of my favorite Holy Grail brushes are part of the 10 Piece Eco Brush Set. The angled powder brush is the perfect shape for contouring while the fluffy blending brush is ideal for packing on your transition color in the crease. You also get a cute case so you can travel with your brushes too!

Creme Luxe Lipsticks

If you have dry lips, you need these lipsticks in your life. These are incredibly pigmented, non-drying lipsticks that glide easily onto the lips and last throughout eating, drinking, talking, etc. My favorite color is Tea Time!

Professional Blush Palette

Blush lovers, rejoice! BH Cosmetics always does a good job at making first impressions, and this blush palette is no exception. Immediately upon opening the palette you get 10 stunning blush colors, from bright pinks to deeper mauves. There is literally a color for everyone!

Wild at Heart Baked Eyeshadow Palette

Last but definitely not least, I had to include an eyeshadow palette because after all, that was the first makeup product I ever tried from BH. The Wild at Heart Palette stole my heart from the beginning not only for its eye-catching packaging, but also because the colors are so vibrant and bold. You can use these wet for a more intense look or dry for a more subtle look.
