Sneak Peek: BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Photos & Swatches

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($19.00 for 1.58 oz.) includes 28 eyeshadows with pearl to metallic finishes. I am not sure when I will finish testing this and have a review up, but I thought I’d share swatches with you nonetheless. I picked this up after hearing some raves from readers + on Reddit earlier this month! ($19 is the “regular” price, but it’s been at $12 for awhile now.)

I think she’s referring to the fact that when you click on the post, there’s the swatches you see if you were just looking on the post on the front page but if you scroll down, they repeat as separates out images.

Holly, are you on an iPhone or other mobile device? If you are on a desktop or large screen, the swatches are in lines of 3 smaller photos, then a close-up of each. But if you’re on a mobile screen, they just show up all the same and it looks like they are duplicated. Not sure why they don’t all just shrink down, but I have noticed it, too. It took me a while to figure out!

iPhone 6. The pics are all showing up the same size, but now that I looked back, the first set look like they are either compressed a little or shot at a slightly different angle. At home I use a desktop, so that’s when i can see that the first set is the smaller lines of images. On your iPhone, do you still see the images lined up next to each other? Maybe it’s my settings…

Your swatches look better than anything I’ve ever gotten from BH — which has been quite a few of their 28 pan palettes. I’d even tried several of the palettes that got rave reviews from vloggers, but I was always disappointed. Besides, I find that some metallic finishes go frosty on me, so it’s a pass.

I fell for the hype, bought this palette, and I’m SO glad I did! I honestly find that for me, they perform better than the MUG foiled shadows. The pigmentation is amazing, even without primer, and the wear was impressive (I got through a nine hour work day with minimal creasing). I had a lot more creasing and more fade with the MUG foils ? For the record, I generally love Marlena’s shadows! I also found that these applied and blended easier than my MUG foils (I only own two of them and bought them during the initial release so if Makeup Geek tweaked the formula after the first go I can’t compare them to a newer formulation).

I honestly did not have a super high expectation for this palette given the price point and performance of the one other bh palette I own (the Galaxy one), and I have been impressed thus far. I’ve had this palette for about a week now and have used it in eye looks everyday. That’s just this girl’s experience. I hope this helps answer your question!

Right now if you spend over $25 on their website you can get shipping for $2.50 🙂 So I ordered this palette, the Carli Bybel palette and a brush and got shipping for $2.50 plus it comes with a free travel palette I guess as well 😀

Sarah Avatar

Christine, if you have a chance to weigh in, which would you get: this palette or the Makeup Geek spring palette that’s on sale now ($30 for 9 shadows)? I don’t have any Makeup Geek shadows and my collection also lacks pops of color…

I think the MG 9-pan set has a combination of finishes and fewer “pops” of color; I was looking to buy the MG set because I liked the colors, knew I’d wear them all, and it’s a good discount. I would just do a comparison of which colors you’d like to wear from each, then make your decision based on utility/uniqueness in your collection. i think utility is probably more important; if you go for the BH palette you’ve gotta ask yourself whether you have lots of other nice matte colors to complete the look and whether you’d be comfortable to swap between products back and forth. ((These are the kinds of comments/advice I’d expect from Christine, too))…good luck!

Sarah Avatar

Good point! The one thing I was worried about with the MUG shadows is that some of them have gotten flop reviews from Christine. It’s still probably worth it, given the great discount. I would use more of the MUG ones than the BH Foils

Nicole Avatar

I’ve been seeing a lot about BH as well! I’m glad you put this up Christine! You just sold one! The shipping is a high compared to the cost of the palette. But, altogether, $20 is pretty awesome if this does well . Fingers crossed. ?

WOW, these look great!! Nancy T. was raving about this palette, now I can see why! OMG, look at the pigmentation and all the unique colors 🙂 And only for $12 on sale???? I’m in! I’m a huge fan of their Party Girl Waterproof Gel Eyeliners (have 4 of the 5 colors, super smooth and pigmented, last forever on my oily lids with primer) but have never tried their shadows.

Katherine T. Avatar

BH does have a Party Girl eyeliner in purple -it’s a true purple, not too dark, not too light, with a little bit of shimmer in there, love to wear it with my purple shadows

I love this palette. The pigmentation and texture are great. I only have one MUG Foiled, Charmed, and I like these much better. Charmed is kind of dry and flaky for me.

The only problem I had was that the glue wasn’t sticking to the pans, and half of mine fell out. Bh sent another, and it started to do the same. They offered me a refund. None broke, so I didn’t take the refund and just super-glued the pans back in. Not everyone who bought seemed to have the issue, so I think it was just a bad batch, but I’d recommend being careful when first opening.

Wow, I just ordered this palette and wanted to see swatches and I immediately clicked on your link. I also subbed via email because I love your swatches. I’m so glad I purchased the palette and can’t wait to get it. I also look forward to reading more from your blog. Best!

KJH Avatar

Pretty neat….even the blues and purples look decent. Your swatches don’t look too awfully frosty. Quite varied. Grab your UDNBs and get going. This should get a lot of play. Great value, too.

Alecto Avatar

Love palettes that are arranged this way!!! I swear I’m not the least bit OCD, but it’s really off-putting to me to see a palette wich a large number of colors that all seem to be thrown in haphazardly (I’m looking at you, UD — except for the Spectrum palette, where you’ve earned my forgivenss.) 🙂

If I felt like I needed this many shimmery eyeshadows, I’d snatch this up in a heartbeat. Honestly, at this price, I’m not sure I can argue against it, even if I only like half the shades.

Poppy Avatar

Uh oh, i know Christine hasn’t tested them enough to write a review and i don’t have these, but it makes me question integrity of MUG. MUG foiled eyeshadows cost 10 bucks a piece, while BH cost 19 for 28 – 10 times less, yet they look the same to me as MUG. I have a couple of MUG foiled, i don’t like them and don’t use them, so BH can’t be worse

charlotte Avatar

I have it.. it’s gorgeous. Super creamy, pigmented, and smooth. Many of the colors are dupes or extremely close the MUG foileds at a fraction of the price and in a nice palette. Packaging is ok, but one of the shades was loose.. for $12 I’ll happily glue that sucker back down.

Alicia Avatar

I was holding out waiting for Christine’s review also, but broke down and bought it anyway. I’ve had it for about a week and I’m very happy I got it!! For me, they perform GREAT and look as nice on the eyelid as they do in the swatch.

Bonnie Avatar

Thank you so much Alicia!! I’ve been holding out too and it feels like forever! Hahahaha. Since it’s so cheap I should just take the plunge! Sounds like a good buy then!!! 😉

If you scroll up in the comments, I replied last night to Lindsay (her comment was on March 31st) with a lot more detail about my experience with this palette. I don’t regret the purchase at all! Go for it! ?
