The Bh Cosmetics Foil Eyes Palette

Today I bring you my first real “official” blog post on Kate’s Vanity! Finally! Right? I’m so sorry for the delay. I really wanted to post a lot sooner, but then life came up and sometimes it kind of gets in the way. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Or if you’re not from the US, then a great Thursday!

I bought the Bh Cosmetics Foil Eyes palette last month. This palette contains 28 very colorful and eye catching shadows. These shadows are a mixture of shimmer and metallic shades. A few do contain glitter. The packaging is plastic with a clear cover as you can see in the picture above. I have ordered other products from Bh Cosmetics before, and they’re usually great for the price. However, as with any brand, it can be hit or miss.

When I first swatched these shadows, it was love at first sight! They swatched so beautifully, felt so smooth, and appeared to be very pigmented. Before I tell you my thoughts on the palette, take a look at the pictures of swatches down below. I swatched these with my finger without any primer, only swatching 1-2 times each…

These look like a dream don’t they? Well when it came to actually applying these on my eyelids with a brush, I was a bit disappointed. They’re weren’t very pigmented at all. I thought, “What am I doing wrong?” So, I used my finger to pat it on my eyelids which helped a lot. I feel like it’s hard to evenly cover my eyelid though with just patting with my finger. I also tried spraying my brush with setting spray, which really helped out a lot. It actually looks really pretty doing it that way.

I wouldn’t say these shadows are very lasting either. Better to just try to wear them for an evening out or something. It’s such a shame though that this palette didn’t turn out how I thought it would. Swatching with your fingers doesn’t always mean that’s how it’s going to swatch with your brush, unfortunately. I don’t have any pictures of this shadow applied to my eyes like I had wanted to. I just wasn’t really feeling my eye look with it.

I paid $12 for this palette, which is extremely affordable. For that price, I am willing to work with it. Today for Cyber Monday, Bh Cosmetics has 80% off of their site. This palette is currently only $7 today! I feel like it’s a great time to try some things you might not be sure about. If you would like to visit there site, click HERE.

I could’ve gone into how many grams each shadow has and how much each shadow is worth…but I’m not going to. Like I said, it’s a very affordable palette. Have any of you tried this palette or any other Bh Cosmetics’ palettes before? If so, which ones? Let me know in the comments! I hope you all have a great week!

Sorry for the delay!

Hey there! Long time no chat right!? I just wanted to write up a quick post to apologize for the delay. I meant to start posting last month but I’m getting off to a slow start. I plan on jumping in this month for sure. I am just waiting for my new camera to get here, which should be soon!

I also want to thank all of you for your support and for following!  ❤ I am looking forward to  chatting with all of you and reading your posts! Many of you knew me from my last blog, Plus+ Beauty. I was gone for a year due to some health issues. I am very sorry for suddenly being gone. I am doing well now and am happy to have a fresh start back here in the blogosphere. I am really loving my new blog name and header! The lovely Kami from Living Grace offered to design a new header for me, which was so nice of her! She has her own Etsy store Eight Fourteen Designs, if you are ever interested in getting a new custom design for you blog.

So how is everyone doing? What’s new? Please let me know in the comments section below. I would love to hear from you!
