Every couple of months I go through a phase where I want to master all these makeup looks. I try out a couple and then I fall off that bandwagon.. until some months pass by and then I want to do it all over again. It's a costly cycle let me tell you.. Anyways, as I was scrolling on instagram over the Christmas holidays, I saw so many pictures of beautiful eye makeup that I just fell in love. I ended up searching for new makeup brands because I wanted to try something new. I stumbled upon BH Cosmetics,
& now $40 later, here I am with some new goodies to share!
While searching BH Cosmetic’s website, I found three eye
shadow palettes that I had to add to my makeup collection. I picked their
Modern Mattes ($10 USD)
, Foil Eyes ($12 USD)
& Essential Eyes ($12 USD)
Eyeshadow Palettes. I wanted a mix of matte and sparkly shadows and I think I achieved
that perfectly with all three of these palettes. The Modern Mattes
shadows are vibrant
colours that have no shimmer or sparkle.. perfect for when you don't want to draw too much attention. The Foil Eyes
is packed with metallic shadows that are great for adding a punch to your look. The Essential Eyes
palette is a great mix of both matte and
shimmer shadows and has other shades that the other two palettes don't have. I
tried the Essential Eyes palette first and was surprised how little product goes
a long way. They’re easy to blend and are very buildable so you can get away
with a light or dark colour.
I also picked up their Eye Essential 7 Piece Brush Set ($9.50 USD)
I figured I’d try their brushes with their own products to see how they work
together. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these brushes. I usually use a sponge applicator (years of using them as a teen have made me actually like using these), so it's a nice transition to use a brush - and many at a time! I'm sure many of you are appalled by that.. but as long as my end result looks great, does it really matter how it was applied? My favourite brush from the set is the blending brush (the big black fluffier
one). I was expecting it to be really loose but it's really sturdy and great at blending!

The packaging of all these products are great, and well worth the price! I can't wait to try out some looks with these shadows - especially the Foil Eyes shadows! I bought all of these products for the prices listed throughout this post. They were on sale at the time of purchase, so if you're reading this and the prices have changed - that's why!
Stay tuned for some makeup looks I'll do with these palettes :)
