The white packaging of this palette helps the shades shine so much more! Let’s introduce the Bh Cosmetics – Nouveau Neutrals (26 Color Shadow and Blush) Palette. This palette has 21 eyeshadows and 5 blushes! There is a nice array of mattes, satins, and shimmers that are described as buttery, rich, and lustrous.
This is a neutral palette that tends to pull on the warm end of the spectrum and it can make for cute holiday gifts for makeup lovers. It’s very affordable and can be a standalone palette to create eye looks. The colors can be used during any season, whether it be spring, summer, fall, or winter.
The mauve-browns, oranges, and pinks can be paired with the gold shimmers very nicely! The blushes are also a bonus in this palette. There is a nice gradient in the blushes, but they can also be used as eyeshadows.
This palette retails for $16.00. However, Bh Cosmetics constantly has sales. This palette can be purchased for as little as $9.60. The palette can be found on: www.bhcosmetics.com. This palette is not limited edition.
Packaging: 4 out of 5
The packaging is so simple and elegant. It is slim and plastic – very, very lightweight. I wasn’t expecting it to be as slim as it is. You can almost see the shades through the front of the palette before you open it. This palette will be easy to store, travel with, or put in a makeup kit. I’d be careful with this palette when packaging though. It feels like it will bend and break very easily! I think that’s the only problem with the extremely lightweight packaging. It is still very pretty and clean!
Shade Range: 4 out of 5
These swatches are the first two rows of the palette. Unfortunately, there are no shade names associated with the eyeshadows.
These swatches are the last row of eyeshadows and the row of blushes. Unfortunately, there are no shade names associated with any of the eyeshadows.
I do wish that there were names for the eyeshadows and blushes. It would make it so much easier to reference. With the layout of the shadows, I think that there could be enough room for names below each pan. The names could have been in the palette, written in simple and black font. I think that it would make the palette look even more clean and professional.
Formula: 4 out of 5
The formula is vegan! It has been allergy tested and dermatologist tested. There are three different finishes: matte, satin, and shimmer. The blushes are eye safe, so they can be used as eyeshadows if you don’t tend to wear blush that often. The mattes do feel very soft to the touch and the shadows don’t break down in the pan. The satins and shimmers are very velvety to the touch. There isn’t any texture in the formula either. We’ll have to see if the shadows crease on the eye with eyeshadow primer. I think that the shadows could be built up and blended out easily.
Customer Service: 3 out of 5
Unfortunately, I cannot find the email with my order. I did purchase this palette from the Bh Cosmetics website – I remember because that’s exclusively where you can purchase this palette. I typically receive shipment notification within 24 hours of placing my order. I don’t remember how long it took to receive my package. However, I do remember that my box was a little damaged. However, my contents were nicely packed and nothing was damaged. This palette was still intact and not damaged at all.
First Impression: 4 out of 5
This palette contains a range of neutrals with pops of warms. The three different finishes also allow for some creativity and simple eye looks. This palette would be perfect for beginner to experienced makeup artists and makeup lovers getting into makeup or those that are always looking for something to add to their collection!
