FOTD: Mermaid Eyes and BH Cosmetics Eyes On The 80's Palette Review

Hello  Everyone!

 My apologies for the missing pictures. My pictures were accidentally deleted off my blog. Please Refer to my Instagram account miss_pilar to view the pictures (or some of the pictures) that were deleted.  
 


 

So I finally got my hands on BH Cosmetics Eyes On The 80's Palette and I love it!

Appearance

- The palette comes in hard cardboard with a magnetic closure

 

- Clear film covering to protect eyeshdows

 

- 30 Very Vibrant neon and a few neutral matte and shimmery colors.

 

 

-  Storage friendly

 Overall Thoughts

If you're looking for an alternate to UD Electric Palette I think this is a good palette to have in your collection. I originally planned to buy the UD Electric Palette, but that whole eye warning issue didn't set well with me. Maybe I'm just extra cautious, but I'm just as happy with this palette. ☺ I also got a 12 piece brush set that came along with it during a sale. This palette is very cost friendly.

 

The brush case smells like paint when you first receive it, but I washed it with dish detergent and a paper towel.  I let it sit open overnight and the paint smell was gone.

 

Fallout is minimal and the shadows are long lasting. 

I recommend using a primer with these shadows to get the full effect of the colors.

The shadows are in matte and shimmery finishes. For the shimmery shadows you don't have to use a whole lot for the colors to show. I actually used too much of the shimmery colors and I used NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk as a base...the result...I looked like I was going to Studio 54 or a member of the ice capades lol. I just had to redo the eye makeup and tone it down a bit, no worries lol

You can create all types of looks from retro, modern day, bold, and even soft etc. I'll try and post my softer look with this palette soon. This palette is very versatile. 


Now on to the FOTD ☺

  6. I love all the colors in that palette!! I was also tempted to buy the UD electric palette but held back because I didn't think I would use it a ton. This would definitely be a great alternative for me. And lovely look you did!

    1. Thank you Ashley! That's another point I agree with, I don't think I would have used the UD Electric palette a lot. I can see myself getting more use out of this palette. I love all the colors in this palette too!

  10. This is a great palette! I'm not really interested in the new UD palette either.BH Cosmetics does such a good job with these themed palettes. I love the look you created. It's very cute and retro!

    1. Thank you Lauren! I love BH Cosmetics! I tried to incorporate a retro look with a modern twist to it, so I didn't go too heavy on the eyeshadow.

  11. Wow those really are colours from the 80's! Very bright and bold. I have to say that those colours look amazing on you, it really suits you. Unfortunately if I used them I would look like I was going to an 80's a Fancy Dress Party :)
