BH Cosmetics: Haul and First Impressions

I am already impressed with one factor of the BH Cosmetics line- I placed my order on Black Friday, and received the package on Cyber Monday! Wow, talk about quick and efficient shipping! I purchased shimmering baked face palettes, two matte lipsticks, and a concealer palette. Below you will find my honest first impressions of the products, links to purchase them (no this post is not sponsored in any way, and I will not get compensation for any of this!) and a video first-impression that includes both brush and finger swatches of the dry products.

CONCEALER AND CORRECTOR- LIGHT 6 COLOR PALETTE

img_4365

This palette contains 6 color correcting and concealing shades perfect for those of us with fair skin. The green helps to correct redness, the pink and yellow tones help to cover dark circles and visible veins (depending on if the dark circles are more blue or green), and the more ‘flesh’ tones are perfect for a bit of extra opacity over problem areas.

PROS: The product is very light and smooth, and blends out beautifully. A little bit goes a long way.

CONS: There is no violet shade for correcting out any yellow tones, or to help combat makeup that may be too warm.

PRICE POINT AND WHERE TO PURCHASE: $9.00, but on sale until 11:59 tonight (11/29) for $5.00. You can purchase this product directly from BH Cosmetics, or if you prefer Amazon, it is there as well (but ships through BH).

COLOR LOCK LONG LASTING MATTE LIPSTICK- BLISSFUL & DARK ROSE

These lipsticks glide on like a buttery balm, the color is intense, and they leave your lips feeling hydrated and smooth.

PROS: super pigmented, one swipe delivers vivid color. Long-lasting, minimal transfer.

CONS: there is a slight amount of ‘kiss’ transfer, and the lipstick becomes patchy during/after eating- it’s not fully life proof. After about 2 hours of wear it does begin to feel a little dry and a bit sticky.

PRICE POINT AND WHERE TO BUY: $9.00, but on sale until 11:59 tonight (11/29) for $4.00. Purchase this product directly from the BH Cosmetics website.

WILD & RADIANT BAKED ILLUMINATING & BRONZING PALETTE

This palette packs 4 highly pigmented, super shimmery shades of highlight and bronzer into one easy-to-travel magnetic closure compact. These products can be applied wet or dry, depending on your makeup needs.

PROS: These are super pigmented and contain loads of microglitter, and blend well when buffed. There is little to no fall-out.

CONS: A little goes a looooonnnngggg way with this palette, and it is easy to overestimate how much you need on your brush. Because of the high microglitter content, makeup removal takes a bit longer if you want to truly remove all traces of product.

PRICEPOINT AND WHERE TO PURCHASE: $24.00, but currently on sale until 11:59 tonight (11/29) for $7.50. Purchase from the BH Cosmetics site.

WILD CHILD BAKED EYE SHADOW PALETTE

This palette contains 9 knockout shades designed to dazzle, amaze, and bring out your inner wild child. These products can be applied wet or dry, depending on your makeup needs.

PROS: These colors create a gorgeous sparkle when applied, and the pigmentation when applied wet or with a finger is unbelievable. They blend smoothly. There is little to no fall out.

CONS: These colors blend SO well that they can look muddy rather quickly if you over-blend. The high glitter content also lends a silvery sheen to all of the shadows, making distinguishing between two very similar shades more difficult. When applied dry and with a brush, the pigmentation is not as strong, requiring more product to build the color. That isn’t a bad thing on it’s own, but it does also increase the amount of glitter used.

PRICEPOINT AND WHERE TO PURCHASE: $22.00, but on sale until 11:59 tonight (11/29) for $7.50. Purchase directly from the BH Cosmetics website.

 

Below is a video of my first impressions of each product, as well as live finger and brush swatches of each of the dry products. All of the products are being worn in my daily makeup look today, as seen in the video.

 

I truly hope this review helped some of you out, or at least gave you an idea of what these products are like in-person! If there are any products you would like to see me test or review, drop them in the comments below, and I’ll do my best to get to it!

Much love,
