The BH Cosmetics Hollywood Eyeshadow & Blush palette ($11 USD) is part of BH Cosmetics newly launched California-themed palettes. The launch includes three palettes, Hollywood, San Francisco and Malibu. Each palette is an affordable $11 and contains 16 Eyeshadows and 4 blushes. My favorite out of the three is Hollywood, which I will be reviewing today.
The Hollywood palette opens with two flaps (one on each side) and both flaps contain eight eyeshadows. The left side contains reds, pinks, blacks, a silver, and white. The right side contains yellows, blues, greens and purples. The middle also flips up and contains a mirror on top with four blushes on bottom. The eyeshadows are a mixture of matte and shimmer shades with lots of fun bright colors. The majority of the palette had pretty good pigmentation and performs well on the lids; however, some shades are not pigmented.
I found all the shades on the left side to have decent pigmentation except for the bottom right coral and shimmer black shade. The white is very sheer but works well on the lids. I also found the right side of eyeshadows to have decent pigmentation but I did have to build up the pigmentation on a few shades like the matte yellow and green. When swatching some of the shades come of patchy but I had no issues when applying to my lids, I was actually impressed with how well the performed on my eyes.
The two blushes are very nice shades of pink and have good pigmentation. The bronzer was rather sheer for a bronzer but worked well to contour. The highlighter is very pigmented but a little too white for me. I do like using it on my brow bone and inner corners of my eyes though.
Overall, it is a nice palette with fun bright shades of eyeshadow, two blushes, a highlighter and bronzer. The packaging is really cute and compact so it is also great for on the go. If you have wanted to experiment with bold colors but have not wanted to spend the money on something used only occasionally, then this is a great palette to get at an affordable $11.
