Buy & Blog: BH Cosmetics



Hello, my Pretties!

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I have been talking about BH Cosmetics for such a long time.  I had been wanting to buy them forever and I kept asking you all for recommendations.  I knew December would be the month that I would get my BH order placed because December is my birthday and Christmas only days apart.  I was anticipating getting money so that's what I was going to buy my palettes with.  Luckily, I didn't have to pay for it.  My very generous sweet-tart picked up the tab on this one.

But I was nice enough to place my order when BH Cosmetics was having a fantastic sale.  All eyeshadow palettes were 50% off and FREE shipping with a $50.00 order.  I cannot say no to anything 50% (or more) off.

I waited for this baby for so long!

I wasn't sure what to get other than the 1st Edition 120 Palette.  I had seen that baby so many times on other blogs and on YouTube channels so I knew I just had to have that one!

But you all know me so well.  If there is more than one version of a single item available, I'm getting them all!

Aren't these palettes exquisite?  I love them all!  I swatched a few shadows the day I got them and they are so wonderfully pigmented.  I tried a red shadow out of one of these palettes on my hand and even after I washed it off, my had still had a red tint.  Crazy!

The first 3 Editions are a mix of matte and shimmer shadows.  The 4th Edition is all shimmer shadows.

I did want to swatch these for you but there are so many.  I don't know if I should just swatch my favorite/more interesting shadows in each of the palettes OR dedicate a blog post to each palette and swatch all the shadows.  I don't know.  Let me know what you all want me to do for you!

If you only want one 120 palette, then I recommend the 3rd Edition.  You get bright colors on the top layer and smoky/neutrals on the bottom layer.  You get the best of both worlds!

I placed my order on the BH website on 12/15/11 which I believe was a Thursday.  I received it Friday, 12/23/11.  And since I spent over $50.00, my order was shipped for FREE via UPS Ground (2-6 days).  It took 7 days to receive my package.  Not sure if that's their norm since it was my first time buying from them or if it was due to the holidays.  Either way, 7 days felt like forever!

All in all, my sweet-tart paid $64.92 for my birthday gift and I think it's worth every single penny.

Luv & Luk,

  9. Wow they all look so nice! I really want to try the all matte one since I don't have a lot of matte shadows. The 50% off sale is really calling me lol

  10. @Kristen, if you're going to buy, buy now! The half off sale makes a difference. LOL. I want to try their matte shadows. I don't ever use matte shadows to these palettes have a nice mix of finishes so I think the matte are going to be the first I use!
