Happy Monday, y’all! I hope everyone is safe from Irma today. Being in SC, we’ve been spared the brunt, but we’re still getting some pretty strong winds and a ton of rain. I have family and friends in Florida and everyone is safe and sound, thankfully. Personally, I love weather like this. Not hurricanes, but cold, wet, dreary days bring me to life. Haha yeah, I’m kind of weird, and that’s totally fine by me. There’s just something about days like this that are perfect for hot tea (or caramel cappuccino hehe), snuggly clothes, fuzzy socks and a good book. I haven’t read in ages, and it’s something that I miss. There’s no reason, other than getting sucked into the black hole of YouTube. That is going to change. I am committing myself to read for at least two hours a day, starting today! Heck, I can read an entire novel in that time! Lord knows my Kindle has enough books for at least a year of reading.
Anyway, I am super excited to get back to my blog. I had entirely way too much going on while my hubby was home. When he left, I took a few days to get myself organized. I created an office space, bought a new printer and basically organized my life for living alone. So far, so good! Having a dedicated space to work has been fantastic. I actually work, instead of watching videos! I made sure to put my back to the television, and only have music on while I’m working. Now, let’s actually talk about makeup while I’m working in my fab office space haha
For some reason, blue shadows don’t look great on me, but I keep trying!! I don’t know what I think will magically change about my complexion that will make blues suddenly look fabulous, but I keep on! Since I’m wearing all blue today, I thought “what the heck, my eyes may as well match the rest of me” hehehehe And since I’m going absolutely nowhere, while a tropical storm rages outside, what better look than foiled shadows?? Ammirite??
A few weeks ago, I ordered this palette from BH Cosmetics and I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived.
They don’t look like much in the palette, but the swatches!! Gorgeous!!
Like I said, I thought I would go for a blue look today, and boy did I!
These shadows are so pretty!! If you swirl your finger in the pan a few times, you will be impressed by how soft and buttery these shadows feel. I thought they’d feel a little rougher, being foiled, but I was wrong! They are creamier than many of the higher end shadows in my collection, that’s for sure. I tried them using a dry brush to start with, and they were shimmery, but I felt they could look better. I spritzed my brush with a bit of setting spray and the payoff was so much better!
While this is only a first impression, it made quite an impression! This palette normally retails for $12.50 here, but it’s currently on sale for $8.37. There’s a site-wide 33% off sale. Even full price, you’d be hard pressed to find 28 shadows, of similar quality, for that price. I can’t believe it, every time I see how much their shadows are. It truly boggles the mind, how they can sell their products so inexpensively. I would definitely suggest heading over to their site and loading up! There are two versions of the Foil Eyes palette, the first having some yellows and brighter blues. Whichever tickles your fancy …
Alright, y’all! Those are my thoughts on the BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 2 eye shadow palette. I say run, don’t walk, to your nearest web browser and load up! Have you tried BH Cosmetics’ products before? What were your thoughts? Lemme know!
