Video Tutorial



If you read my BH Cosmetics California Palette mini series posts, then you already know how spectacular these eyeshadows are. This palette is no different. In order to not be repetitive and not make this post unnecessarily long, you can read my reviews of the other BH Cosmetics palettes here, here and here. If you're too lazy to read through those, I will give you a quick run down. BH is known for their affordable, and brightly pigmented makeup. These are so bright, you almost need to wear sunglasses. A little goes a long way, and they perform exceptionally well with a quality primer. The packaging and art work of the Brazil palette are stunning and capture the spirit of Brazil perfectly! It's made out of durable cardboard and has a nice sized mirror on the inside. You get a total of 30 eyeshadows that are of every color on the spectrum in a variety of finishes. You get matte, shimmery, satin, glittery, and duo-chrome. I also like that they put some thought into this palette and gives you larger pans of the two colors that get used most often, black and white. This palette is perfect for the color obsessed!



Just check out the swatches! These were all swatched over Lime Crime's Eyeshadow Helper. 


I really hope you guys enjoyed this super bright and tropical look! I definitely felt festive wearing this, and I was so sad to wash it off, haha. If you are interested in this palette, it is currently available for $10.50 USD over at www.bhcosmetics.com, which is a steal if you ask me. That's like paying 35 cents per eyeshadow! I mean, come on now! I would also like to dedicate this look to all of my amazingly wonderful Brazilian fans! You guys are awesome.
Take care!
xx
