I thought instantly of the BH Cosmetics Day & Night Eyeshadow Palette because of it's wide variety of fun colors mixed with a ton of neutral ones without paying a boatload for a lot of different choices.
This is one of those things I ordered that I did not have the highest expectations about because of how cheap this palette was! I was pleasantly surprised as to how things really turned out.
The palette has 60 colors total with the left side of the colors being a "day look" side and the right side is a "night look", hence the name of the palette; BH Day & Night.
When I first got the palette in the mail, I took it out and opened it. I smelled a really strong plastic smell, and thought that I couldn't possibly put that on my face! It confirmed my idea of it being really cheaply made with eyeshadows that might end up burning my eyelids off with chemicals.
I soon found out that it is the plastic casing that smells that way. The eyeshadows don't have a smell at all. To add to my skepticism, the shadows looked like they could possibly be super sheer with low quality, since that is the way they looked at first.
I decided to try it....... and I completely changed my thoughts! The eyeshadows are actually really pigmented and a really smooth and creamy consistency. They are really nice on, and blend really well. There are so many colors to choose from, and it seems as though a few colors are duplicated, but for the price, who cares!
The intense chemically plastic smell goes away quickly so that you can stand to use it without smelling the casing. BH Cosmetics also has some really good brushes for extremely cheap! You can buy a whole brush set for under $30.
I would recommend using these eyeshadows with an eyelid primer such as the Lime Crime one I suggested in my first post, because it keeps the color from fading and creasing throughout the day.
You can also purchase the Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper Primer for $16.99 HERE (This stuff sounds expensive, but it actually lasts a long time!)
mentioned. This is my own personal opinion on this purchased item***
