Tonight I'll be writing my final review for my BH Cosmetics products and its a double whammy! I'll be covering the 1st & 2nd Editions of their 120 Colour Palettes which I think are absolutely AMAZING! Actually I don't even think amazing is the best word...phenomenal is a better fit.
So of all the two palettes come in a shiny black case and when you pop it open you see the top tier of eye shadows and you will see a little purple ribbon on the righthand side. When pulled this lifts the tier from the case and you can set it down in the lid to expand your palette to all 120 colours! Which makes it simple to move the tier around with you so you don't have to balance the open combo size. All of these colours are super pigmented so you won't be disappointed when you go for a bright colour on your lid and then you get this very weak colour. They do get brighter with primer but I don't use primer that often unless I really need the look to last a long time and the colour still lasts a long time and is bright. Also the back of each palette has a sticker to tell you which edition you are holding (There are 3 editions - I have the 1st & 2nd).
For the 1st Edition Palette the top 60 colours line up like this, the top line has whites, silvers, greys and 3 blacks (these range from mattes to shimmers). The next line has some shimmery blues, greens, teals, and a matte lime. The third row is purples, fourth is pinks and peaches, fifth has oranges, reds and a couple pinks and purples with the last row having neutral browns, tans, beiges with some very light yellows.
The bottom tier has a lot more bright and in your face colours (which I love)! This tier really says summer to me.
The first row is teals ranging from light to dark, matte to shimmery, the next row is of blues, violets, purpley-blues and again matte and shimmery. The third and fourth row are a wide variety of greens, limes, olive, a range of shades and also matte and shimmer. The next two rows are yellows, oranges, corals and a couple neutral beiges.
Also for the bottom tier the last eyeshadow in each row is actually a dual colour and the combinations are funky. I have yet to use one of them though.
For the 2nd Edition Palette the top 60 colours are arranged by column in this palette as opposed to rows. The large majority of the top tear is light to heavy shimmer. Starting on the left side of the palette we have the white, grey, blacks, the next row is a shimmery neutral column with golds, browns and two reddish browns. The next column is greens, nice and bright, then matte and shimmer teals, the next has more greens of varying shades and one more of blues all off the darker persuasion. Then we get into the purples and violets and there are two super shimmer shades and one thats a little sparkly. The next is reds and corals with 2 shimmers. The last two are neutrals, browns, taupes, a couple light pinks/peaches. The bottom tier also screams summer like in the first edition and it matches up well with the colours of the top tier. The first two columns are yellows, oranges with a few shimmery ones, but mostly matte, the next three are greens, teals and more greens. The next are purples that have blue hues and the next has the fuchsias and bright purpley-pinks. Then the next row is whites, shimmer cremes and 3 different blacks: super shimmer, shiny, matte. Then the final two columns are pinks and browns.
Over all these palettes are top quality and only cost $30 for one if you buy them individually which is amazing. I know a lot of women who have told me they have spent $70+ on palettes from MAC and other such companies and didn't get more than 15 colours. So can you say BARGAIN! I certainly can. These are an absolute steal! I recommend them to anyone starting in make up (like myself) I know there are tonnes of "makeup gurus" on youtube who have these palettes and love them too!
I'll be covering all these products again in a summery product review tomorrow but I will also show you guys some pictures here.
