Happy Monday everyone! This is just a quick one brand haul of some items I picked up from bhcosmetics.com.
I decided to pick these items up for the Perfect Pairings sale, which featured three separate sets of items that were paired together for a discounted price. I decided to choose the first option, which included the brush set and the eyeshadow palette for $18.95. Of course, I purchased some other items as well 🙂
- 11 pc Pink -a -Dot Brush Set: Includes a really cute brush container, and 12 brushes with the same polka dot design on the handles with a gold ferrule. The brushes included are as follows: Deluxe Fan Brush, Powder Brush, Angled Blush Brush, Classic Foundation Brush, Tapered Shadow Blending Brush, Classic Shadow Brush, Flat Eyeliner Brush, Angled Shadow Brush, Small Smudge Brush, Tapered Eye Liner Brush, Lip Brush. I was mostly drawn to this set because I wanted a powder brush for setting my makeup with loose powder, as I did not have one. The fan brush as been very nice for applying a light contour, and I have yet to use the other brushes.
- Wild Child Baked Eyeshadow Palette: I don’t really wear eyeshadow on a regular basis, but this palette had some very nice colours, especially a couple of neutral shades I can wear during the summer. I’m excited to play around with this!
- BH Studio Pro Anti-Shine Primer: I’m on the hunt for a good mattifying primer to use under my makeup. The one I’m using currently, the NYX Photo Loving Primer, is nice, but it doesn’t necessarily do much for me. Primers that smooth skin texture are nice, but my main concern is keeping my makeup looking flawless throughout the day. I’m hoping that this is a good option. If not, I’m going to have to go on the high end spectrum and try the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. I swatched that one on my hand one day at Sephora and it completely mattified the entire area, so I’m hoping this BH primer can perform to that standard.
- BH Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder in Shade #250: Ever since I parted ways with my MAC Studio Fix Pressed Powder, I’ve been on the lookout for a pressed powder that could perform up to the same standard, but for a fraction of the price. Again, I’m hoping that this works to provide at least a medium coverage that lasts at least 8 hours. I think this powder should be a good match since it’s a deep toned brown with yellow undertones, which I have. Many powders I have used, especially those with darker shades, often have strong red undertones which I can wear, but I have to be very careful with them, otherwise they make my face look too dark. I’m hoping that this is a good match, but I think it will be.
- Forever Nude Aqua Glosses in Nutmeg, Prailine, and Glazed Pecan: I’m not really a gloss girl, but I do love a nude lip. I decided to give these a try since they were only about $4 a pop. From what I’ve swatched and worn, these glosses seem to have very good lasting power and pigmentation. Of course, I’ll have to test them more extensively, but so far I’m impressed.
- BH Liquid Foundation in Deep Beige: I haven’t worn foundation in about 3 years or so and wanted to give it a try again without breaking the wallet. I also wanted something that was relatively light, but buildable if needed. This was on sale for about $3, so I didn’t really think I had anything to lose. I like it (but again, will do a more in depth review), but the shade has too much of a red undertone for me. It was a little hard for me to gauge the shades, but if I order this again I’ll probably order a shade up for something with more yellow undertones.
- BH Studio Pro Oil Blotting Papers: This was more of a “why not?” addition to my purchase. Useful, right?
I’ll be doing separate reviews of everything in the upcoming weeks, so keep a lookout!
Have a great day!
