BH Cosmetics

I have been wanting to try BH Cosmetics for a little while now. I had a feeling that it was the same makeup as Coastal Scents (just with the BH stamp on them) and I have a few eye shadow colors from Coastal Scents that I love. So I figured I would give BH Cosmetics a try. On the day that NYX Cosmetics had their $1.20 sale (that barely anyone was able to purchase from), I decided to buy from BH instead. I had been staring at makeup on line for about 16 hours and I REALLY wanted new makeup (even though I didnt have a lot of money to spend). I know that there was various colors that I was interested in at the NYX site so I decided to buy one of those HUGE palettes from BH. I couldnt decide between the 88 Palette and the 120 Palette. So I bought both. I havent swatched all the colors as of yet, but so far the ones that I have used... I LOVE.
The palettes that I bought are the 88 Cool Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette, the 120 Eyeshadow Palette 3rd Edition (this is 2 palettes in one container... one on top of the other), and the Palette of 10 blushes. I dont remember the exact price I paid (and I cant find the receipt), but I do know that I got an additional 20% off because I have a student discount. I found the code online and just signed up using my school email address. I do know that I paid around $50.00 for everything (including shipping and tax)... which is a steal!
The colors that I have used are the oranges, yellows, pinks and teals. I have made some beautiful eye looks that I have never done before. The colors are extremely pigmented. Even the shimmer colors have shimmer throughout the shadow (so far). I would take pictures of the looks that I have done, but my camera is not great and it doesnt show how beautiful the colors really are. All I can say is that for the amount of money that you spend (which is not much) on these amazing palettes, you get so many color choices and the pigment is great.

Below are pictures of the palettes that I bought. If anyone else has these palettes or anything else from BH, please tell me your opinion. I am now a huge fan of BH and cant wait to try other products out.

10 Blush Palette


  1. Nice haul! :) How are the blushes? Are they matte?

  2. Great haul! I really wanna try BH cosmetics and coastal scents. I haven't tried either but keep hearing good things about both! I really want that blush palette!

  3. @Makeup... the blushes are matte and amazing. So far I have used the orange (which I am in love with), the brown one for contouring (which is great), and the bottom left pink one (which is good but doesnt show up to well on my skin tone. I did try the pink one with a stippling brush (b/c that is what I have been using recently... but I am going to try it again with an actual blush brush.

    @Miranda... everything is great so far from BH. I also like Coastal Scents. I have a few eye shadows, brushes, and the highlight/contour palette. Either one is great. I think their makeup is made from the same manufacturer.

    Both of you... let me know if you buy anything.

    Thanks for reading.

  4. AWESOME buys!!! I've eben eyeing these palettes for a while now, still not sure which one to get... I'll have to let you know when I get one :)
