BH Cosmetics: 3 New Palettes!

I just bought a couple of new palettes from BH Cosmetics and I am pretty pleased with them!

BH Cosmetics is a very affordable makeup brand so I wasn't sure how good the quality of these would be. But they are pretty good! While they are not as good as say, Urban Decay or M.A.C., but for the price you pay they are great.

The shadows and blush have good pigmentation and most of them have a good blendable texture. A few of the shadows are a little chalky but you can still work with them. These palettes would work great for travel because they have pretty much everything you need in one place. They would also be great for a teen just starting their makeup collection!

Forever Nude Palette: $11.95
The palette includes 6 neutral eyeshadows, 2 cheek colors, 1 highlight and 2 lip colors.

Forever Glam Palette: $11.95
Palette includes 6 smokey eyeshadows, 2 cheek colors, 1 highlight and 2 lip colors.

Left to right: cheek and lip colors


Duo Blush Palette: $21.95
Palette includes 6 blush colors in pinks and corals.

I will be posting some looks with these palettes soon!

Have a great day!

Urban Decay Electric Palette - Review and Swatches

Hey guys! I couldn't wait to get my hands on this palette and now I can't wait to show you how awesome it is! While I love Urban Decay's Naked Palettes my true love in makeup is bright, bright color!

Urban Decay Electric Palette: $49

This palette is so great! It has 10 beautiful bright colors with the same great pigmentation and quality that Urban Decay is known for. All of the colors but one are mostly matte (with just a bit of pearl in them to make them blend easier). They are soft and apply and blend beautifully. You can use this palette just to add a pop of color to neutral eye look or if you're feeling wild use it to create a crazy bright look. I will be doing tutorials for both on my YouTube channel soon!

This palette is being marketed as a "pressed pigment palette". They are not calling it an eyeshadow palette. This is due to some of the colors in the palette like Slowburn (and some others) not being approved for use around the eye area because they can irritate the eye. However, I have used all of these and haven't had any problems with any of them so far. Just something to be aware of. The palette included a little sheet with ingredients for each color.

My favorite colors from the palette are Jilted, Urban and Fringe. Which ones are your favorite?

You can find the Electric Palette on or on

How would you wear these colors? Let me know in the comments! Urban Decay also has a ton of other awesome products in their Summer Collection that were released along with the Electric Palette. Check them out!

Talk to you soon!

theBalm Cosmetics Palettes - Review and Swatches

Hey there! I hope you are having a great day. Who else is so happy that Spring is finally here? I'm in a better mood already!

I have 2 new palettes and a blush from theBalm Cosmetics to show you guys today.

The first palette is the How Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream Palette: $32.00

theBalm's packaging never fails to draw me in! How cute is this? Just wait till you see the inside....

Super cute! And what makes the cute packaging even better is the quality of these cream products is outstanding!

Look at the pigmentation in these colors! That is just one swipe! These will all make beautiful cheek or lip colors. They are not sticky at all and are also not drying on the lip. These are perfect for that dewy cheek look for Spring and Summer.

Second is the Balm Voyage Palette: $42.50

This palette is great for travel or home use and with 16 full size eyeshados and 3 cheek/lip products it is a great value. The quality of these shadows and cream cheek/lip colors are amazing. They are very pigmented and creamy, which will make for beautifully blended eye looks! I love how the packaging is travel-related. I thought it was a clever touch to make the eyeshadow names like airline seats! Ha!

Bottom to top: A3, B3, C3, D3
Bottom to top: A2, B2, C2, D2
Bottom to top: A1, B1, C1, D1

And last but not least, a great long-wearing blush. Instain Blush in Houndstooth: $22.00

The Instain blushes are very pigmented and really long-wearing. This one is a very pretty mauve-rose color. The also have 5 other colors in pretty peaches and pinks!

You can find these all at

I hope you enjoyed this post! Talk to you soon!

The Mr. Bunny is a great well-rounded set with a great selection of face and eye brushes.

I am very happy with my purchase and will definitely be picking up more Sigma brushes in the future. I will post pictures below with brush names and numbers. You can purchase them at
