By on April 27, 2017
BH Cosmetics Marble Collection in Warm Stone ($11.99), Supernova Eyeshadow Palette ($15.99), Blacklight Highlight 6 Color Palette ($16.99), and Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer ($5.99)

I’ve had some really good luck with BH Cosmetics lately and recently saw that they launched some fun new stuff for the spring season. I have three new palettes that I’ve bought: the Marble Collection in Warm Stone featuring 12 eyeshadows ($11.99), the Supernova 18 Color Baked Eyeshadow Palette ($15.99), and the Blacklight Highlight 6 Color Palette ($16.99). These are each quite different from each other, but all have their own unique appeal. I’d like to share some swatches and thoughts on all three.

I made some orders with Zoeva and BH Cosmetics, and was spurred on by a makeup brush clean-out and a sale. Zoeva was the big one that I’ve been thinking about for a while, and finally put together an order of brushes and makeup to make the international shipping worth it. BH Cosmetics, on the other hand, won me over with a sale and some interesting new products on the site.

I want to chat a bit about the Carli Bybel palette from BH Cosmetics because it’s very beautiful, very affordable, perfect to travel with, and generally quite useful. I’ve reached for it on and off since purchasing it in March, and over the past holiday weekend it was the only eyeshadow I took with me while I traveled.

I’ve found myself reaching for the same base makeup products nearly everyday when I’m getting ready for work, many of which are affordable, and all of which have been working really well for me. Most of them have only been mentioned in passing on the blog, but deserve a little more attention. So, here are the primer and complexion basics, as well as a mascara, that I’ve been loving recently.

Last week I saw someone on YouTube mention BH Cosmetics, and I realized that I’d just about completely forgotten about the brand! As someone who prefers to buy affordable and cruelty-free makeup, there’s a lot to love about them, and the only reason I don’t buy more from them is probably the simple fact that I have to remember to check them out online. There were a few basics that I was in need of, so I went ahead and placed an order that afternoon.

I’ve had a small box of makeup set aside for a de-potting project, and I finally got around to buying a few small tools to help me with the job. It’s my first time breaking open my stuff, but I had a few products that I was eager to put in magnetic palettes in order to help me use the shades inside more often.

I purchased the BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic eye shadow palette back in September soon after it was released, and in October I wrote a review which included 3 different looks using the shadows. I put the palette away for a period during the winter when bright colors didn’t seem as fitting, but in the past couple of weeks I brought it back out again.

I’ve done this sort of post once before, and I find it a decent way of talking about a handful of different products at one time. I don’t tend to devote an entire post to one pack of cleansing towelettes because my analysis of them is pretty simple, but because they’re useful for spot-cleaning brushes, wiping off swatches, cleaning up eye shadow fallout, and removing makeup at the end of the day, I use them quite a bit. Here are five that I’ve tried recently: Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes, Trader Joe’s Miceller Cleanser and Makeup Remover, L’Oreal Ideal Clean Makeup Removing Towelettes, Olay Fresh Effects Refreshing Makeup Removal Cloths, and BH Cosmetics Makeup Remover Towelettes.

Space is a beautiful inspiration for makeup, and the new Galaxy Chic palette by BH Cosmetics features 18 stunning baked eye shadow shades mimicking the vibrant and swirling colors found throughout the cosmos. Space-themed things are always fun, and when I saw that this palette only cost $14, I ordered it immediately. Galaxy Chic contains a full range of delightful colors, from brilliant hues to smoky neutrals. And the quality is nice, too! The shadows have a luminous sheen, and a few of them include a delicate dose of glitter. I’ve been playing around with these shadows for a few days now and I have 3 looks to share with you.
