BH Cosmetics California Collection Make-Up Look

27 Dec

A few weekends ago, I went out for a friend’s birthday and I was in a sparkly Holiday mood.  I hadn’t used the BH Cosmetics California Collectionin Malibu before since it’s gold.  But it was Christmas season and I was feeling bubbly, and then I got some bubbly, HAHA.

I used the NYX HD Eye Base with San Francisco and Malibu.

And I love how my HD Powder totally showed up white in the flash!  hahahaah

I blended the gold into the bronze so I didn’t look like a bumble bee, bzzz.  I think it turned out rather nice.

Review by Request – BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Sample

19 Aug

This was in my July Ipsy Glam Bag and I just recently got around to using it.  I’m a little late, but these colors are a bit intense, so they needed a special occasion to be worn.

The sample came with a purple, bronze, and gold colors.   The bronze San Fran  and gold Malibu are really sparkly, but pretty.

I was really impressed with this shadow.  It has really good staying power.  With my NYX HD eye primer, I needed to work a little to remove it at bedtime.

The colors are just slightly more sheer than how they appear in the pot.

Swatch on my hand:

BH Cosmetics shadows build and blend well.  I think they blended better than MAC, which I sometimes have a hard time blending perfectly.  But, I do seem to be the only person in the whole wide world with this problem, so pay no attention to me 🙂

The full sized palettes come with 16 eye shadow colors and 4 blushes for $8.95.  This is a steal!

I’m glad I tried this brand because I will buy from them.  I can’t wait to try other products.

Thanks ipsy!

Urban Decay Naked 2 dupe for $5

18 Jun

I found this adorable little E.l.F eyeshadow palette at Marshall’s for a whole $4.99 yesterday.  I have been on the hunt for a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette for a wedding I am going to this weekend and I think this might be it.  The colors are incredibly close to what comes with the Naked2 but then some.

Meet the Little Black Beauty Book – Warm

LOOK AT THE CUTE LITTLE BOOK IT COMES IN!  AHHH.  So Cute.  Perfect for travel!

Here is the Naked 2 Palette for comparison:

I have not shelled out the $50 for the Naked 2 palette so I can’t officially call this a Dupe War but the shimmer in both palettes is very similar as are the colors.  Totally a great palette for daytime wear.

I am going to a wedding in Yosemite so I wanted to have nice earthy tones with some playful shimmer that is why this E.L.F. palette is worth it for me.  It’s small, so perfect to toss in my purse of makeup bag.  Plus the $45 dollars I saved i’m going to spend on filling my face with all the San Francisco sushi ever.  -kassi
