Affordable Eyeshadow Palettes and Makeup Brushes - Review

Eyeshadow is the best way to accentuate your eyes and add drama to your look. Applying eyeshadow can be a lot of fun. You can apply subtle shadow for a natural look, apply bright colors to really make your eyes pop or even apply eyeshadow to match your outfit. Eyeshadow is my favorite cosmetic product to use but they can become so expensive. Some eye shadow palettes cost well over $100.00! I was searching online for an affordable eyeshadow palette and came across BH Cosmetics.

120 palette
BH Cosmetics provides contour and blush palettes, eye shadow palettes, lip palettes and makeup brushes. I recently received the 1st Edition 120 Color Palette. I admit, I was very skeptical. I thought there was no way possible a 120 eyeshadow palette could cost under $30.00 and actually be a good shadow!

When I received my shadow palette, I was expecting several colors to be broken and scattered throughout the palette. Every single shadow was in tact with not a single color broken. I appreciate the fact that BH Cosmetics took the time to carefully package my palette.

vibrant eyeshadow resultsI found the eyeshadow in the 120 Color Palette to be highly pigmented. I was able to apply the eyeshadow with ease. You won't need to cake the shadow on as they are so rich in color, you only need to swipe each color across your lid once. This palette includes every color you would possibly need from blues, browns, grays, pale shimmers, pinks, greens, reds, vibrant bold shimmers and everything in between. I have been using this palette exclusively for several weeks now. I love that this palette can be used for everyday wear! The colors blend very nicely and are long lasting. I have tried several color variations and haven't seen any of them crease. I am still in shock that BH Cosmetics offers a 120 eyeshadow Palette for such a small price!

Here are a few more details:
  • One palette contains 2 layers,portable and convenient to use.
  • Long lasting, easy to match different make-up styles !
  • Super-fine Powder Produce even and long lasting makeup.
  • Feels light and soft.
  • Easily create clear and brilliant eye makeup finish.
  • Includes matte and shimmer colors.
  • Case size is 9" x 6"
I also received the 10 Piece Deluxe Brush Set (wood color). I was very impressed with the high quality of these brushes. They are very soft and worked great for applying and blending my multiple eyeshadow shades.

The 10 eye shadow brushes are neatly stored in a convenient black zipper case. The brushes included in this kit are:
  • Powder brush
  • Blush brush
  • Foundation brush
  • Smudge brush
  • Large eyeshadow brush
  • Small eyeshadow brush
  • Eyebrow brush
  • Lip brush
  • Pointed Eye Liner Brush Mascara brush
The advantage of natural hair is that it has scales which traps the makeup on the bristles. These scales of the hairs hold the pigments and transfer it to your skin effectively when applied. I noticed that these brushes really pickup the color. One of the problems I have with my other brushes is the hair or bristles falling out. I haven't had that happen with the brushed in this kit.
