Today’s video and post is my first impressions and review of the BH Cosmetics 6 Color Palette Contour & Blush. BH Cosmetics in the UK isn’t the easiest brand to come by, but I managed to pick this up and thought I’d share with you my thoughts on the product, especially when its my first product I’ve used from BH Cosmetics.
Here is some information on the BH Cosmetics 6 Color Palette Contour & Blush…
Industry professionals know the secret of expert contouring — now you will, too! Six large spheres of matte, high pigmented color powder (this texture is best for contouring) also give you choices for blush, shading and concealer.
Contouring for me is something I do daily, even if I’m not leaving the house. Its like mascara, its a must have/do thing and I don’t feel ‘put together’ if I don’t do it. The benefits of contouring in my opinion are huge as its all about adding shape and definition and if you have a slightly rounder face like me, it means you can make it look a little slimmer too. When I saw the BH Cosmetics 6 Color Palette Contour & Blush I knew I had too try it. In the video I talk about my first impressions of using the palette. So, you actually see me use it how I would on a day to day basis. This post is more of a final conclusions to that video and also hopefully may answer some questions you have on the product and of course swatches.
Here are my findings;
The colours all blend out really nicely on the skin. As you saw from the video, you can blend them out to practically nothing. This means that you can achieve the kind of finish you want
With several lighter shades in the palette, you can blend and get the colours you want and not just with the contour. This also applies to the blush and even the highlight. Making this palette suitable for a wide variety of skin tones
Not one of the shades was chalky or powdery. I did find they had a slight ‘buttery’ feel to them. There was no fall out either when used as a crease contour shade (Which I have to say looks really nice)
The contour shade is not warm at all and looks more of a neutral cool tone, so again is better suited as a contour shade. However, you can mix it with the blush to get more of a bronze blush shade which is really lovely
All the shades blend well together
Personally, I felt this palette was lacking a ‘banana’ shade. Although the second colour on the top middle looks creamy yellow, it comes off more peach. A buttery cream would have been better for setting under the eyes as a highlight, but alas we can’t have it all now can we?
Over all, for what I paid I really like this palette. Granted I can still see me purchasing the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette but only as I like a variety of shades to contour with and am not that interested in blush. But for those on a budget I would definitely check out the BH Cosmetics 6 Color Palette Contour & Blush as its good quality and lasted as well as my Benefit Hoola Bronzer and ELF Cool Bronze last on my skin (About 4 hours). The white shade also set my under eyes nicely and lasted really well too. So, I would recommend this but wouldn’t pay over the odds for it either to get it, but feel the £12.95 I paid was more than acceptable.
