I love makeup collaborations, especially when it’s with women of color. It’s already hard to find products on the market that work for darker skin tones, so when makeup companies collaborate with women of color, you know that some of our (women of color) concerns are going to be addressed. I follow beauty blogger ItsMyRayeRaye and she’s had collaborations before with indie company, ColourPop, which I LOVED and bought because the colors worked for my deep skin tone. So when I heard she was doing a collab with BH Cosmetics, naturally I had to support and see what Ms. RayeRaye was going to bring to the table.
OH. EM. GEE. This palette!! Guys, seriously! She did not come to play! There’s 15 eyeshadow colors, 3 highlighters, and 3 contour shades. The color choices are on spot on, and the pigmentation is crazy for the price point. I don’t wear crazy eyeshadow colors; I mostly wear neutral makeup or a smoky eye. This palette has great transition colors, a few shimmer colors for accents, and the perfect super dark matte black.
The “Moonlight” highlighter is a yellow gold that reminds me a lot of the Fenty “Trophy Wife” highlighter, minus all the glitter. Out of all 3 highlighters, “French Toast” is my favorite; it gives the perfect subtle bronze glow. When it comes to the contour colors… I didn’t know if the darkest shade would be dark enough for me, because usually it’s not. In this case, “Brownie Bite” is the perfect contour shade for me, and I find that I actually have to be careful and not use too much! (That never happens!)
Overall, this palette is amazing. It’s the perfect size for me to carry in my purse, and it eliminates having to carry so many different products. The only negative thing I will say is that there is a little bit of fallout, but I don’t mind it, just be careful when using it. I think everyone needs to get this palette, as it’s not only for darker skin tones, but works for everybody!
