BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette: Review and Swatches

When I was making a list of makeup I needed to buy before my wedding, one front I was sorted on was getting a good quality palette for all the parties, celebrations and family get togethers I had to attend because I already had the BH Cosmetic Party Girl Palette in my vanity. This palette has been with me for a while but has been a victim of my “buy and forget” habit until I started packing my bags to shift to my new house. I have been using the palette pretty sincerely before and after wedding so I knew it’s finally time to share my views with you guys.

Price: 8$ plus shipping.

The BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette comes in a very cute and colourful cardboard box that houses the actual palette which has the signature BH cosmetics black matte plastic body. The lid opens and closes with a clasp and is pretty tight so you don’t have to be worried about the lid opening up when you are travelling with it. The palette overall is very sleek and lightweight which again makes it very travel friendly. The only thing that could have made the packaging better was if it came with a mirror. I know BH has some palettes come with a mirror now but the older palettes don’t which is kind of a bummer. Common BH…your signature palettes deserve a ramped up packaging :p.

The party girl palette has 40 shades with shades ranging from sober neutrals to bright pinks,oranges and a good variety of blacks, browns and greys you need for sizzling smokey eye. It ha a good mix of finishes as well so you can create a matte or a shimmery look depending on the occasion.The downside with this palette is some colors appear to be different in the pan but they look quite similar when you wear them. I feel a little cheated when this happens because you don’t really have 40 different shades like you were promised.

In terms of pigmentation, some shades fare well while some do end up disappointing you. The lighter shades have pretty low pigmentation so you have to work with them to build the intensity whereas the bright and the darker shades are more strong in the pigmentation department.

Quality wise the eyeshadows are decent and there are not too fallouts even in the shimmery shades. They don’t crease or fade and blend really easily. The staying power for most shades is around 5 hours and they don’t budge for even longer if you wear a primer underneath.

Here are the swatches

Overall, the palette has proved to be really useful for me for all my party centric look requirement. This is one of my go to palettes and I don’t really need to look around for any additional shades because the palette covers most. I find the mix of finishes really useful as well and it works for my day looks as efficiently as it works for creating something for a night out. Quality is decent, staying power is great and the overall palette is fuss free to use. Basically I have no major issues with the palette and the only problem I see is that BH Cosmetic is not available in India and shipping to India is pretty sleek. The way around is to keep an eye on the sales they have and sometimes they offer a discount on the shipping as well.
