BH Cosmetics Dark Rose Palette – Review and swatches

BH Cosmetics were kind enough to send me some of their great products for a review, and one of the eyeshadow palettes that I got was the Dark Rose Palette.

This beautiful palette contains 12 shadows with cool and warm tones. Most of them are matte shadows, but there are a few that have shimmer in them. You also get 3 blushes that you can use as eyeshadows as well, and a black super durable liquid eyeliner.

The quality of these shadows is very good, they are very pigmented and creamy, easily blendable and I experienced no fallouts.

The liquid liner that comes with the palette is super black and waterproof, I literally had a hard time taking it off, so if you like eyeliners that don’t smudge, and last all day, this one is definitely for you.

This palette is very versatile , you can create a wide range of looks with it from a dark smokey eye , to a romantic or a neutral everyday look. Here is one look that I did using this palette-

The packaging is beautiful, its made of cardboard, with magnetic closure, and the only downside is that it doesn’t come with a mirror.

As for the price, it’s $24.95, but they currently have a sale and you can get this palette for just $12.95 on their website – www.bhcosmetics.com , so its also affordable. Overall I love BH Cosmetics, their products are always great quality and affordable.

Here are the swatches, I arranged them according to the rows in the palette:

Bottom line

I personally really love this palette, I love the fact that those shadows are of a great quality, they don’t fade after a few hours like some more expensive shadows do,but yet they are affordable, so if you like those colors (I definitely do!), do not hesitate, go to www.bhcosmetics.com and order your palette!

Hi beauties!

BH Cosmetics was kind enough to send me their three new Baked Eyeshadow Palettes. If you don’t know who BH Cosmetics are, they are an online cosmetic shop that sells good quality makeup and accessories for low prices. You can buy these palettes on their website here. The prices are very low considering the quality you are getting and to top it off they are always having sales and discounts on their items. These palettes all retail for $19.95 each but they are now on sale for only $11.95. Pretty amazing!!!

The packaging is really cute and sleek and each palette has a different theme. There is the “Wild Child” palette, the “Wild & Free” palette and the “Wild at Heart” palette. I love the names and the overall look of these palettes. As written on the packaging these shadows are all baked. Baked shadows usually have a much more intense and vibrant pigmentation. These definitely do not fall short and are actually ALL quite amazing. (you will see soon with the swatches)

I just love how colorful and fun these palettes are. They’re compact enough that traveling with them would be a breeze and they also come with a big mirror which is always a plus. There are 9 shadows in each palette. They are all highly metallic and extremely pigmented!

As you can see the pigmentation is just out of this world. I did not use a primer – they are applied completely dry. You can even amp up the pigmentation by applying these colors wet, even though you don’t even have to. I am so impressed with the quality of these baked shadow palettes. They honestly look like pressed pigments and for the price it’s a complete steal. If you’re in the market for some intensely pigmented metallic shadows, definitely pick these up.

The Smokey Eye Revisited

Hello beauties!

I am a huge fan of the smokey eye. It never gets old and is perfect for a formal event or a casual day out and about. It has the right amount of drama and style to keep every girl feeling fierce.

Here is how I rock the smokey eye!

  1. First I prime my eyelids.
  2. Next I choose a light shade from the Forever Smokey Palette such as the beige and apply this to eyelids with a blending brush.
  3. After this I apply one of the grey shades from the palette to the outer corners of my eyes with a smudge brush.
  4. For the final step I add a coat of eyeliner to my upper and lower lash lines and finish the look with a few swipes of mascara. Sometimes I pop on a pair of false eyelashes to add some playfulness to the look.

Need to see the smokey eye in action? Here are a few of my favorite smokey eye inspirations:

Kim Kardashian- Kim is famous for her smokey eye. She always wears the style on the red carpet and looks fabulous doing it! 1227-01-Kim-Kardashaian-smoky-eye-makeup_li

 

Mila Kunis- Mila sports the smokey eye regularly as well and always looks amazing.mila-kunis-435

 

Taylor Swift- Taylor has embraced the smokey eye in recent years for a more mature look and looks great with it.taylor swift

 

While greys, blacks and browns work well for the smokey, don’t be afraid to add a little bit of color from time to time and incorporate a deep blue or purple.

How to Get the Coveted Perfect Neutral Eye Look

Colorful looks are fun to create and pretty to look at for makeup inspiration. There are makeup artists who are so talented we can’t help but call their work “art.” However most of us go to school orwork and have to tone down on the makeup that’s appropriate for the setting… and is big reason why neutral eyeshadows are so sought after.

Balm Stick: A Must-Have for Any Beauty Lover

Hi BH beauties!

We are in the heart of winter, and as you know the cold weather can take a toll on our skin and lips. There is nothing worse than the dryness that impacts our beauty routine during this time of the year. Moisturizer is a must for keeping skin in top shape, and don’t forget about taking care of your lips.

While I love my gorgeous glosses and lipsticks, they do not keep me as moisturized as balms do. The balm stick Lip Balm Stickis the perfect beauty product for keeping your pout protected and it adds some color to your face. There are two ways I recommend wearing this:

Layering- Wear the balm stick as a layer underneath your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. Just make sure to stay in the same color family or to wear a neutral color.

Solo- Feel like giving your favorite lipstick or lip gloss a break? You can wear balm stick by itself for the perfect hint of color and shine.

Finish off either look by adding a swipe of eyeliner, shadow and mascara to eyes and you are ready to roll. How do you wear balm stick? Share your style with us on Instagram by using #bhcosmetics.

Stay warm dolls!

Xoxo,

Jessica
