If you have been following my blog, you surely understood already that I am mad about eyeshadow palettes and even if I know I have enough, I always think I can get better colors, quality and textures. This addiction led me to buy Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered and BH Cosmetics It’s My Raye Raye. Both of them are amazing and I don’t regret at all any penny I spent. Let me explain you why…
- HUDA BEAUTY ROSE GOLD REMASTERED
Initially I didn’t intend to buy this palette, however when I felt the smooth texture of these eyeshadows on my fingers, I didn’t resist and my brain tricked me by saying “imagine how it’s going to look on your eyes”! I just couldn’t resist! Luckly, I don’t own the old version of this palette and I really think this updated formula is better and more pigmented. Also, I managed to get it cheaper (the perks of working in the cosmetic industry), instead of paying the full price of £56, so one more reason to buy it😁
By looking at the swatches on the pictures above, you get to see how intense they are. All the colors are highly pigmented and the frosty shimmer eyeshadows feel like a combination of loose pigment and cream eyeshadow. They’ll stay forever and they seem water resistant, you will need a makeup remover to take them off.
From all the shades, pink diamond is my favourite, it really shines like a diamond. On the picture below, you can admire the beauty of this eyeshadow.
Isn’t that gorgeous?! If you like this eye makeup, I have put the tutorial on the very bottom of my blog’s page or you can also check it out on my instagram.
Overall this eyeshadow palette is worth it, if you are a makeup artist and you want your makeup to stand out or either you want your client, if you freelance, to be impressed positively.
If I wasn’t a makeup artist, I wouldn’t pay £56, when you can get a dupe from Makeup Revolution, especially in London, £56 is precious money, if you know what I mean 🤔
- BH COSMETICS IT’S MY RAYE RAYE
There is so many reasons why I have decided to buy this palette! The first time I saw it, it was on instagram and I loved the idea of having everything in one palette. You have, eyeshadows, highlighters and contour shades! Plus it’s a small palette easy to take with you when you travel, avoiding taking all your eyeshadow/highlight/contour palettes. That was the main reason why I got it and made me import it from US. Unfortunately, it’s not available in UK, which is such a pity ☹ This palette costs in dollars $22.50, such a good price! Although, because of the shipping and customs duties, altogether I paid £30. Not bad, but still £10 more of what I would pay, if I lived in US.
Another reason why I end up purchasing it, is that this palette was made together with the youtuber “Itsmyrayeraye” – link: https://www.youtube.com/user/ItsMyRayeRaye and she started like all of us. She followed her makeup passion and she kept doing her makeup videos without knowing what she would achieve. After 5 years of youtube, she finally got invited to do this collaboration with BH Cosmetics. I felt she should be supported not only because of the hard work she had building her youtube channel up, but also, and I don’t want to cause any harm to anyone, the fact that she is mixed race. I am as well, even though I’m light skin tone, but I’m half portuguese/half african from Mozambique. I know this will cause some polemic opinions, but there is still racism and it’s good to see makeup brands like BH Cosmetics are ready to support someone like her. If you see the swatches above of this palette, anyone can use it, either you’re light or dark skin tone🙂 Anyway moving on…
These eyeshadows are pigmented, not highly pigmented like Huda Beauty, of course, hence the price is different, but still they have a very good quality of pigment.
What I really like about these eyeshadows is that there is warm, neutral and dark colors suitable for an easy everyday makeup, making this palette a must have.
The first swatch picture, you can see all the matte eyeshadows. On the second, all the shimmer ones. Third and fourth, the highlighters with and without flash light. Fifth and last swatch picture, you can check the contour shades.
Because tiffany is my favourite eyeshadow, I created the following look.
As highlighter, I like moonlight and for contour, if I mix chai and mocha, I get a perfect contouring shade. Here is a picture of the full look, using them.
This picture was taken at the end of the day and everything was still in place, proving that this palette has an amazing quality and all the shades are long lasting.
IF I HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN HUDA BEAUTY ROSE GOLD AND BH COSMETICS IT’S MY RAYE RAYE?
I would choose BH Cosmetics: better colors for an everyday makeup, better size to travel, it’s a 3-in-1 palette and even with customs duties and shipping is cheaper.
Though I should say Huda Beauty palette is unique and for a night out makeup this is the best of the best!
Thank you for taking time to read my blog🙂
Wish you a day/week full of love, good moments and if something bothers you, have a glass of wine or beer 😁🥂🍷🍻🍹 ❤
