Hi guys! Welcome back to my blog. It’s very nice to see you stop by. Hope you’re week were great.

You know that I’ve raved quite a lot of BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes in the past and today is no exception too. I love love BH Cosmetics’ products and so far they’ll hits in my book. Their products haven’t let me down thus far. I’ve been enjoying all their eyeshadow palettes and frankly am very satisfied.

Without further ado, let’s jump into the deep end of foil-ey goodness!

I got this Foil Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette Foil Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette together with some other BH products I ordered online for my beauty haul. This palette is one of them.

Regular price palette is for US$19.00 but it has been for US$12.00 for a while. Foil Eyes palette houses all 28 gorgeous shadow with pearl and metallic finishes. The  packaging is of black plastic and the cover is of frosty clear material with no mirror nor brush applicator.

And to my Canadian beauty friends, it’s still extremely reasonable even with the exchange rate in my opinion.

BH Cosmetics is a cruelty free brand and for those of you who are eco-friendly then this palette is something you would want to check it out.

Just look at this eyeshadows. Now tell me if there is any reason not to love! ¬†These are the most beautiful foil eyeshadows I’ve seen so far. These shades are super pigmented and creamy. The shades are more along the¬†cooler tone¬†and gem stone shade range. With that being said, these are very wearable everyday shades that you can transition easily from day to night in your makeup look. What more could you ask for?

There are so many awesome shades that keeps me going back to create many different eye makeup look. From neutral to spring and straight to punchy summer glow.

I find that working with foil eyeshadows, it performs better if you use your fingers to pat the products first and then blend them carefully instead of using a brush directly.

There’s no shadow names so I’m just going to put a number from #1 to #28 starting from first row from left to right and repeat three more times continue numbering from left to right.

Just to point it out. I find the¬†packaging to be so-so. The outer packaging is pretty sturdy, but I’ve noticed that some of the shadow pans are beginning to come unglued. It doesn’t really bother me at all since I can glue them back. Other than that, nothing terribly bad to say about it. This is an awesome palette.

Umm you guys…you need to keep reading to see my swatches and review.

Ladies, ladies, listen up. I know that you’re all exhausted beyond imagination after all the HEART work you poured¬†preparing¬†Thanksgiving dinner and then waking up the next morning looking beat-up ¬†with hangover (after a few toasts). But since Black Friday Sales¬†will¬†go on, you brave yourself with shield and¬†armor ready to charge when the store doors open.

Well, frankly I’m a little jealous since we don’t have big Black Friday Sales here where I lived, and if there are, it’s in a smaller scale. But luckily for us, we got to shop online for the SALES. YAY¬†to¬†online commerce, ebates etc…

Nope, NO Armour necessary, just plastic card will do.

Sephora Beauty Haul !

Friday Haul!!! Yipeee! I always enjoy doing beauty haul. You guys might¬†know now that I¬† am obssessed with makeup. I love to shop¬†at the¬†drugstores, retail stores, high end stores and sometime online stores. I prefer to go to the store to get¬†my makeup stuff¬†but sometimes if I can’t get the particular makeup that I wanted to try it on, then I’ll have to¬†get them online.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Mineral bronzer. Came in a nice square box with smooth matte texture. This bronzer doesn’t have shimmer on it. The color pay-off is absolutely great.¬†The texture is pigmented and offer nice bronze contour. I simply used a circular motion when applying this bronzer and¬† the result is fabulous.

This Brazillian Self Tanner is quite a¬†treat. It came¬†together in the same box as the Amazonian Clay Mineral Bronzer.¬†Don’t be surpirsed by the color of the cream which I squeezed out a bit for swatch. Well, the color component is like dark brown/black. After 8 hours since my swatch on my hand, the stain was still there.

Be sure that you only apply them of  the body eg. the elbow, knee and ankles. Since fall is almost here I will have to keep this for next summer if I plan to do some self tanning. For those of you who are enjoying tropical season, this would be a nice way to get tan at the comfort of your own home. I included the info I extracted from Tarte for ways to prepare the tanning session.

Info on how to use from Tarte website:

Make sure skin is dry before application. Use Tarte’s unique blending mitt for an easy, no-mess, streak-free tan. Dispense at least a quarter-sized amount of self tanner to the mitt and apply to one body part at a time in long even strokes until the bronze color is uniform. Allow self tanner to absorb for 10 minutes before dressing. Wait at least 8 hours before showering, shaving and sweating to allow a seamless tan to fully develop. Use Brazilliance 1-2 times a week to maintain a gorgeous, natural-looking tan.

The next item that I got is this Sephora Color Bronzer. In it, there were lip gloss and a bronzer with the 8 pretty color eyeshadows. I feel that the eyeshadow are a little bit chalky and lots of glitter or shimmer. For those who loves the bing and gleam these eyeshadow is for you. Out of the 8 colors I only like the dark brown matte which was quite pigmented and I wore it for my review.

Sephora HaulHot Lava lip gloss

Last but not least, is this incredible lip gloss from Smashbox – the Santigolden Age Legendary in Hot Lava. There was another color in All Gold E’vrywhere in sheer copper sparkle but I chose this sheer red/orange instead.¬†Be excited with this wonderful¬†vibrant, glassy-finish gloss. Absolutely,¬†an everyday wear. To be worn alone or with a nice lipstick.
