Be… Eyeshadow Palette by BH Cosmetics – Review & Swatches

 

Hey guys! Welcome to Tester Wednesday! Today I’m going to share with you my thoughts and opinion on this Be Eyeshadow Palette by BH Cosmetics I’ve tried over past two week on rotations.

I did mentioned this before in my previous post where I talked about the collaboration between BH Cosmetics and beauty Youtuber Bubz Beauty. She has her vlog channel just like other youtubers. Did I mentioned that she has almost 3 million subscribers? I don’t know if you care but just to put it out.

According to her, it took her 8 years to work on this palette. Imagine the effort and hard-work poured into it. I love supporting youtubers who work hard with brands to create a palette with followers or users in mind. It’s the concept of the palette that caught my attention. She went with the inspirational theme; “Be whatever you want to be”. And this palette says it all.

Let’s talk about the packaging. I really like the rose gold lace detail on the front of the palette. It’s so girlie and feminine. The packaging is cardboard like the other BH Cosmetics YouTube collaboration palettes, which makes it super light weight and easy for travelling. Inside you’d find a decent size mirror and twelve pretty eyeshadows on it.

The cost of it is $12.50 at BH Cosmetics.

I’m a sucker for eyeshadows names when it comes to palette. Don’t you hate it when they don’t!  I mean come on … I just don’t get why don’t. How hard could it be to name eyeshadows?

But thankfully, this palette what I wished for in a palette. And I’m happy for that.

You could wear inspiring shadows like Grateful with Confident and Able or any combination shades your heart desire. (Image inserted below is what I’m wearing on my eyes today #EOTD using the shadows I just mentioned).

As these shadows are nicely pigmented, you can definitely build up the colors. They’re very easy to blend with no fallouts!

#EOTD Look – It gave me this warm, rustic eye look, and I also winged my eyeliner and applied a warm mauve lipstick to tie it all together!

My top favorites are Happy, Optimistic, Charismatic and Thoughtful.  Which inspiration shadow names is your favorite? I love to know.

All of the colors I have used or swatched on my eyelid are decently pigmented. I haven’t found a lot of fallout with these shades and instead I find the formula is almost buttery for the most part except for one of them which I find a little more chalky than the others. It’s the shade Confident (the eggplant purple).

So overall, this is a great palette if you’re looking for a budget palette as an alternative. Another point I like to mention is that this product is cruelty free meaning they’re not tested on animal just in case you’re concern about it.

Did you order the “Be…” palette? What do you think of it? Let me know!

I hope you enjoy this month’s picks. Until next time, take care everybody!

Book: #Bloombook – Self Discovery Journey

 

Hey guys! If you’re a fan of Estee Button aka Estee Lalonde then you would’ve probably heard of her first book “BLOOM” which was released about two months ago. Since it’s released I was very keen to grab a hold of her book. You could tell that I’m her fan, right!

She has two youtube channels with one called Everyday Estee which is a vlog and her youtube beauty channel is Estee Lalonde. Her beauty channel is where everything started.

I’m not ashamed to admitted that I’ve only learned about her youtube channel until last summer and I’ve been watching her vlog channel ever since.

I got this book as a Christmas gift from my daughter. She heard me talking about it and was pleasantly surprised when I opened it. Even though it’s not a signed copy, I’ll still treasure it for a long time to come.

Alright enough of my ramblings and let’s get to business. The front cover of her book is clean and direct to point. I would say this book bloom is very her. Why I said that! I think it’s her style and the way she talks and approach life if you watch her vlogs.

At first, when I read a few pages I thought it was a little too brief to my usual novel readings. It’s seems to me like it’s a summary of her life to youtube all compressed in this 247 pages book. Frankly, I find it quite astonishing! (in a good way).

What you can find in bloom are short chapters and some longer stories where she talks about work and female empowerment to name a few. The focus of this post for me to share my experience after reading her book. Don’t worry, I’m going to spoil the contents for you.

Thanks to Estee, I just learned that I’m a homebody myself which is not a bad thing at all. I do love travelling from time to time but most of the time, I love to be at home wearing with most comfortable clothing on earth (pjs) and with makeup or no makeup day. With my health problem, I’m kinda restricted to be doing crazy things I used to do before. Gone are those rat race times and crazy working hours. I didn’t miss it anymore. I find myself in solitude and peace that I couldn’t explain. It’s like I woke up one day with my perspective in place and all I’ve to do is just take the time to smell coffee.

Each chapters bring readers to how she leads her life from childhood memories to adulthood. It’s an interesting book where you could read on your bedside or when you’re commuting on the bus or train. It’s a light and easy reads!

To add an extra punch, she added some pastel color pages in her book to keep the readers glued. This is brilliant in my opinion.

I thought this is relevant to our connection of being a Canadian. In her own words how she describe to be Canadian – “Canadians have an internal mantra of live and let live”. I could relate to this.

From this book you would also find how she combats her social anxiety and coping with depression. Reading this book makes me reflect and think a lot of my past experiences both good and bad. I want to take on her challenge to speak and express more about myself here on the blog and what are the things that makes me bloom!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I recommend this book if you’re looking to find some inspiration book directly from an experienced youtuber. As I was drawn into my blogging world, I realized something from this book that helps me. I finally find my way home again. I love writing and am passionate about life. This book taught me to know no boundaries and sky is the limit.  My favorite phrase has to be “Following my heart!”

I hope that you too will find your true inner self or your calling to rise by lifting others.

You can order Bloom now if you want to read more about her self discovery journey. This is not a sponsor post or anything whatsoever, I’m sharing my love of this book and I really hope you’d love it as much as I did!

What do you think of this book? Have you read it already? What’s your take on this? Love to hear your comments in the section below.

Thanks for reading my rambles here on the blog. Have a great day, everyone!! [muah♥]
