Hi, beauties! A while ago, BH Cosmetics launched a palette in collaboration with the influencer Daisy Marquez. As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be mine. I liked the color scheme, the packaging, and I’ve always loved the brand itself. I tested it for a few weeks and made up my mind about it. If you want to know more, keep reading!
What stroke to me the most about this palette is the packaging. I’d never seen a palette with a mirror like this! I love the Tiffany’s-esque feel of it. The colors are very, very pretty, and most of them are tones I didn’t have in my collection before.
For instance, shades like Daisy, Dream, and Slime are really different and unique compared to what I already have in my vanity. Others like Passion Fruit and Bittersweet are like staples for me — I don’t care how many burgundy palettes I have, I’ll keep buying them!
I also think the colors are diverse, which I like because it gives a lot of play. At some points, I kind of felt like some of them were a bit random, and there’s a couple of shades that are very similar. Nonetheless, there’s cohesiveness in that variety.
Pigmentation and Swatches
This palette’s mattes aren’t the most pigmented when it comes to swatches, but their performance is really good with a brush. The shimmer shades are incredible. Some of them are a bit opaque, they’re much like a topper shade with the first swatch, but they’re buildable, which is what I care the most about.
Shades like Flower (the canary yellow one – not pictured) were a bit disappointing though. Both when applied with a brush or swatched.
As you’ll notice in the pictures below, the shadows are very buildable and can be pretty intense. I even managed to do a winged liner with one of them with a wet base, and it looked really good!
Some shadows have a bit more fallout than others (especially the dark matte ones), something that I don’t really mind since that makes it easier for me to play around with liners. Those aren’t the easiest to blend, but you can get the hang of them.
Here are some of the looks I came up with!
Daisy Marquez palette – is it worth it?
Personally, I feel like I’ve seen better from BH Cosmetics. Some of the shades don’t adhere to the eyes easily, which makes them a bit harder to work with. However, I love that most of the shades are different from what we’re used to, and the variety in colors and endless possibilities that it gives.
Overall I’ve had a nice experience with this brand’s palettes (see the Zodiac palette), and although this one isn’t bad at all, it lacked some pigment in some of the shades that I was the most hopeful about. I do like it, but it isn’t my favorite.
This is it for today guys! I’m trying to start writing again, now that classes are over (my schedule between work and university wouldn’t let me breathe), but I still have finals and other things I need to take care of. It’s relieving to see that the views are still strong, even growing, and I hope it stays that way because I’ve worked so hard to get here. It’s been a tough couple of months, but I’m back!
Before you leave, don’t forget to follow me on social media. I try to be more active there, and it’s an easier way of seeing my updates! ♡
