This is yet another purchase from the “hit or miss” beauty site known as Hautelook. This purchase was delivered in a timely manner, although I never received a shipping confirmation email….(oh well, beggars can’t be choosers!)
This is my first time trying a product from BH Cosmetics but a lot of you tube beauty’s rave about them (especially their eye shadows) for being a very decent product for such a modest price point. BH Cosmetics is also a cruelty free company, which is a plus!
I ended up paying $12.95 including shipping (I had a $5 credit) for the Forever Glam Palette on Hautelook. It’s currently on sale at bhcosmetics.com for $9.95 plus $7.95 shipping. The palette itself is somewhat large, so it might not be ideal for travel. The mirror is huge (its the size of the whole palette) but it only stays put at certain angles. There are 2 blushes, 2 lip colors, 6 eyeshadows and a highlighter.
The blushes were pretty decent, there is a shimmery peach and a bright matte pink. The pink was slightly more powdery, but it was also more pigmented. I got a full days wear out of both shades.
LIP and HIGHLIGHTER SWATCHES:
The lip colors are a bright cool toned red and a bright cool pink. The highlighter is a shimmery pale pink.
The lip colors were surprisingly creamy and long lasting. After a couple of hours on the lips, they started to feel dry but an application of a clear gloss or balm on top provided some needed moisture. The red shade lasted about 8 hrs through eating and drinking, the pink lasted about 6. I DID have to apply a gloss twice during those times to keep my lips feeling comfortable, but the color was still there!
EYE SHADOW SWATCHES: (swatched over bare skin)
The left row includes a nude shimmer, a golden shimmer and a deep navy blue shimmer.
The right row includes a coral shimmer, a taupe shimmer and a purple/blue-ish shimmer.
The shadows were decently pigmented for being swatched over no primer. Also, they weren’t too powdery and they were all pretty easy to blend. I did some eye looks and I used the LA SPLASH primer from my April Glossybox… they lasted about 6 hrs with no creasing or fading.
I did a day look on the top using the coral and nude colors, then I did a night look on bottom using the taupe and navy.
Overall, considering the price, I thought this was a bangin’ palette! 🙂 The lip colors impressed me the most (the red was my fave!) and I’m seriously considering picking up the Forever Nude Palette ($11.95) from them too!
Have you tried any BH Cosmetics products yet, if so what are YOUR thoughts on the brand?!
Thanks so much for reading, have a great day! xoxo, Kristina
