Review: BH Cosmetics 28 Color Smoky Eye Palette

This post contains affiliate links – Disclosure here.

So I’ve been not buying makeup at all recently to save for my Paris trip. I wanted a new eye palette though. I’ve heard good things about B&H in the past so I decided to give it a go at 11.95 on amazon. (that’s just a normal non affiliate link) I purchased the BH Cosmetics 28 Color Smoky Eye Pallette and am pretty impressed for the price. 

Below I put some swatches, without primer. Let’s be real, I’m not wasting enough primer to cover my entire forearm. 

I’m pretty pleased. Some of the shades are a bit powdery, but nothing that can’t be dealt with. I really recommend that you use an eyelid primer. I used my cheap one here, the WNW fergie eyelid primer (Like sixish dollars?). It didn’t make sense to use my urban decay primer with eye shadow this inexpensive. I also thought some of the neutrals were way too similar for inclusion. A true white would have been nice in one of those shades places. Overall  I like the versatility of this palette. It would be something I would be okay travelling with, because if it breaks or I lose it I’m ten bucks down the drain versus 50-100 dollars. It’s a bit big for backpacking, but I might be able to finagle it. Here’s what I did last night with some of the red shades, I hope it doesn’t come across like I’ve got a raging case of pink eye. 

Do you like B&H Cosmetics? Any other frugal palettes you like?
