Review: I was able to pick up this beautiful palette from the 2013 BeautyCon Los Angeles event before the actual release date. Right off the back I knew I had to have it. The colors, packaging and all around look of these eyeshadows had me mesmerized.
BH Cosmetics is known for it's rich pigment and great pricing and they DIDN'T miss the mark with this palette at all. They do live up to the BH Cosmetics standard.
To use these colors I do need a primer or base so I would use an eyeshadow primer that I could get from a drugstore or luxury counter. I would take a nice light color like Cosmic (shimmery lavender) and use it on my eye lids, then pair it with a matte purple, brown, black eyeshadow and my eyes would just pop. The baked eyeshadows were all consistent and I didn't get much fall out, a few had glitter in them. I did notice that when I wanted to really intensify the baked eyeshadows I could just use a wet/damp eyeshadow brush and really build up the color.
I have to say that my favorite colors are Milky Way (Lavender/Purple Shimmer), Neptune (Royal Blue Shimmer) and Mars (deep Brown Shimmer). I could pair any of those colors with anything and come up with a look to compliment the many different skin tones of my clients.
