During one of the recent BH Cosmetics sales, I purchased another custom 15 pan palette. I tried to pick up some neutral shades to help round out my makeup collection.
Talc, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Mineral Oil, Magnesium Stearate, Methylparaben. May Contain: Mica and Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Ultramarine Blue, Manganese Violet, Chromium Oxide Greens, FD&C Red No.40 Al Lake, FD&C Yellow No.5 Al Lake, FD&C Blue No.1 Al Lake.
$24.46 for a 15 color custom palette, $13.96 for a 6 color custom palette, $2.77 for a single shadow. Single shade is 26mm net weight 1.3g/o.o4 oz.
My thoughts on the shades and their descriptions:
wm12 – matte creamy beige
wm16 – matte peach
cm5 – matte beige tinged with grey
wm19 – matte light pink
mm16 – metallic matte burgundy
ws12 – shimmery cream
ws16 – shimmery peach
cs5 – shimmery light dirty grey
ws19 – shimmery pink
mm14 – metallic matte navy
ws18 – rich pearly brown
cs9 – coppery-brown
cs7 – light shimmery silver
cs13 – shimmery rich aqua
mm4 – metallic matte pine green
You can see my brighter custom palette from BH here.
The metallic mattes are fantastic and I really love them. CS13 is gorgeous (as is its matte counterpart CM13). CM5 and CS5 are really awesome shades. I don’t care too much for WS18 or CS9. WM16 and WS16 are nice peach shades. WM19 and WS19 are ultra girly pinks. WM12 and WS12 are nice creamy shades.
From what I’ve seen online, I think that the quality of the single eye shadows is better than their pre-made palettes, but I haven’t tried any of the pre-made palettes to confirm this.
If you don’t mind talc, methylparaben or mineral oil in your eye shadows, these have nice texture and pigmentation.
