BH Cosmetics 'Wild Purple' brush Set Review

BH Cosmetics 'Wild Purple' brush Set
I first discovered BH Cosmetics in 2010 while I was in search for a 120 palette. When I first arrived on the site all they sold were a few palettes. No editions,liners, foundation, blush nothing. I was highly impressed with the 120palette-2nd edition mainly for the pigment quality and the different shades(like red).

I bought this brush set along with other a few other items about a month ago. I had never tried any other products besides the 120palette from BH Cosmetics so I just wanted to get a feel of a few of their new products. In that order I received my brush set, party girl palette, 88 neutral palette(gift for my neutral-loving mama), two gel eyeliners- atlantic & burn, and two lip pencils-fuschia & raspberry and the duo-fibre stippling brush. I will review the other products if you ask.

I was very pleased with my order-delivery, packaging and products. The brush set retails at $29.95 but realize I've never seen the set on sale for more that $18. Normally it's on sale from $10-$15. I believed I paid $9. It comes in a nice faux leather case that rolls up nicely without damaging the brushes with a tie. All of the brushes are soft and dense. I've washed them several times and seen absolutely no shedding. The handles are also quite secure. In my opinion, they pick up and hold the product very well. 

What I don't like about the brushes is that they are not labeled or numbered, in which i know a lot of brushes aren't labeled but there are about 3 or 4 brushes that look nearly identical and while we know the difference, I feel like a beginner wouldn't be able to identify which was which. The blending brush does not look like your conventional blending brush instead looks like a normal eyeshadow brush. The set comes with 3 eyeshadow brushes, one being the sponge (not pictured below) and 2 VERY identical brushes,while one is called flat eyeshadow and the other small flat eyeshadow. Mind you there is no size difference. The smudge brush also had the density and length of a blending brush and works perfectly as such.

The brush set includes:

Precision Eyeliner Brush.Lip & Concealer Brush. 
Angled Eyeliner Brush.


Flat Eyeshadow Brush. Blending Brush. 
(Small?) Flat Eyeshadow Brush.
Smudge Brush. Angled Blending Brush.


Dual-Sided Brow Brush and Lash Comb. Spoolie Brush.

Skinny Fan Brush. Angled Blush Brush. Highlighter Brush. Powder Brush.

Overall I'd say this buy was a PLUS! I hope you learned more about this product from my review! Until next time..stay beautiful, Keshia Glam <3

Stripe Crazy!

After seeing Rihanna totally rock a similar outfit like this one like two days ago in London, I decided why not try it? Can you pull off mixing vertical and horizontal stripes together? I thought about how horizontals make you appear thinner and verticals make you appear thicker..wouldn't you want to wear a horizontal top paired with vertical bottoms, thus giving you that hourglass effect? Just my thought..Happy readings and Happy Thanksgiving <3

2012 Holiday GIft Picks Under $50

Before I began exploring the web for ideas and actually learning the true power behind the statement, "Google it", I was always struggling to find Christmas gifts for others and what inexpensive gifts I could tell someone to get me for Christmas. I've finally made a list of amazing beauty gifts that I would love to give a friend or family member and that I would love to receive. All of these gifts are under $50. I hope these give you some ideas or maybe you'll actually find that you want to purchase one of them. I love creating Amazon widgets because they look fun and you can easily scroll and click on items. The widget below is full of items that would be perfect for anyone who wants to organize and add a boutique feel to their room. I can remember countless times where I've seen a product and either couldn't find or forget the name of the product so every item is linked, just click on item name and price. Some like the E.L.F. products are limited editions and sell out quite fast on the company website and in stores so they'll be linked to Target online.  

Happy Readings and Happy Holidays <3

Top 10 Lip Products

I feel like I center my entire face of the day around my lips. I decided to make a list of my top 10 lip products, these are the products that I can wear all year round. With the exception of two products,which you'll notice later, all of these products are under $5. As I've said before I'm not a big lipstick person unless you give me the perfect shade. So most of these products are lip glosses and liquid lipsticks. This is my first attempt at swatches and it was a FAIL...even with my lighting and video recorder. From here on out, I VOW to do swatches in daylight! I daresay, not to bad for a first try though, right? I'll try attach a company picture. Happy readings <3
