When it comes to the makeup I wear every day, I’m pretty picky about the color, formula and quality of the products I wear. Review blogging has given me the chance to try lots of different cosmetics and many of the products that I have tested have become essentials in my beauty regime.
But every once in a while, every woman wants to get a little wild. To wear makeup colors that are completely outside her comfort zone. To try that bold new eye look that uses multiple shades. To enjoy experimenting with the hottest trends of the season. When that urge hits me, I just don’t have the money to buy dozens of individually packaged products just so I can see how the turquoise trend or the fuchsia fad look on me.
Fortunately, I learned about BHCosmetics. This incredible company believes that trying a new look should be fun, easy and most of all, affordable. I was thrilled when I was given the chance to review one of the company’s stunning eye shadow palettes for myself.
I received the 120 Color Palette EyeShadow 1st Edition to review. The sleek black box that the shadows come in was about the size of a paperback book and I sighed with delight when I opened it up and saw the rainbow of colors inside. Red, orange, yellow, green and blue shades mingled together and fired my imagination with ideas about the eye looks I could create. I was even more excited when I realized that there were two trays in the case, and the beautiful blend of pink, purple, white, black and brown shades in the bottom case inspired me even more.
The set costs just $30, which means each of the 120 eye shadows costs a mere $0.25! I decided to create a fun and colourful look with shades of purple and blue initially, and I had so much fun choosing a dark purple shade for my upper lash line, a lighter lavender for my eyelids and lower lashes and a pale blue for under my brows. The total look was so vibrant and opulent, and I loved the way that the different colors highlighted one another and blended so well.
I was also impressed by how easy the eye shadow was to apply and how well it stayed on when I was done. The colors went on smoothly and evenly and lasted all day long, though the different shades did blend together a little more over time.
BH Cosmetics offers three different eye shadow palettes so that every woman will be able to find a set of color shadows that suits her perfectly. The company also offers sets of lip-gloss, blush, concealer and professional makeup brushes at unbelievable prices so that no woman will have to suffer being stuck in a makeup rut.
I’ve spent a lot of time experimenting with the BH Cosmetics eye shadow palette since I received it two weeks ago, and I expect to spend even more time testing out the different colors as the weather gets warmer. While I’m sure there are some shades that I will never use, there are many others that have already become some of my favourite colors when I want a vibrant eye look. Best of all, I can play with the colors and experiment to my heart’s content without spending endless amounts of money on cosmetics! If you’re craving a new eye look and aren’t sure where to start, or if you love to switch up your makeup look frequently, check out BH Cosmetics for yourself. You’ll be swept away by the plethora of looks that you can create!
