I had the absolute pleasure of trying out two products from BH cosmetics. There will be two parts to this review. This one will go over the beautiful products and the next one will be where I attempt a look. I was thinking of doing a Holiday related theme. We shall see...

When I first set out to find cruelty free and affordable cosmetics, it became a chore. Gradually, I started to find makeup that didn't irritate me, and it has been a long hard battle. Some companies have made it easier for me and one of those is definitely BH cosmetics.

I was sent two products to review. I had a choice of  their latest eye shadow palettes and selected the one  I thought was best for me, and I was right. The 28 color smokey pallet went beyond my expectations. The colors range from vibrant to subdued and calm. I love switching it up depending on my mood, so this was perfect.

The 28 color smoky palette is extremely pigmented and easy to apply. Submitted for your approval are several swatches to show you just how much. You will drool at the sight.

My favorite is the deep green. It is perfect to coordinate other Autumn colors in the palette with and you can get some beautiful dramatic holiday looks from the red, pink and green combined.

Impressive features of this palette:

  • Extremely pigmented.
  • The color pans are BIG.
  • Vibrant & unique colors. It has red, which is not common in this kind of set.
  • Great highlighters, some subdued colors and deep sparkle/shimmer colors, perfect for the smokey look. 
  • So many looks in one collection. You can go from day time to night time to very dramatic.
  • Sleek, black and classically designed case.
  • Comes complete with a nicely sized mirror and two brushes.
  • This is SO much more than the name portrays! They packed a lot in only a 28 choice palette

Ladies, if you are worried about these colors fading, have no fear. I wiped a few times only for it to stay put and then this is what was left after scrubbing rigorously  It has major staying power, unless of course you use make up remover. Then it slides off without a trace.

The second product is their new Round Angled Blending brush. This particular brush is great for blending  with precision. It has a perfect angle, which can be used from the big to small part or vice versa. It is very elegant and made sturdy, with very soft bristles. I mean human hair soft. I don't see it falling apart any time soon, unlike many others I have tried. The brush had no fall out that I could detect, and applied smooth and flawlessly. Just like the right brush for painting a canvas, you need the right one for applying shadow. It is all art and the quality of brush greatly affects your work.

Over all, I give both these products my full 100% approval. I was very impressed with the color selection, pigment, and price for both. You definitely get outstanding quality for the price.

Normally $21.95, the 28 smokey color pallet is NOW on sale for $14.00! A huge savings for an already excellent value!  I can easily say these are comparable to higher end shadows and work just as well.

You can purchase these on BH cosmetic's website or sometimes Amazon will have a few deals. I wouldn't hesitate to try them out at this deep discount! Find out more by visiting their Facebook page.

I was provided with these products for the purpose of review and was not compensated for my contribution.
