REVIEW: BH Cosmetics Hollywood, San Francisco & Malibu Palette + Swatches

Hello December! I’ve been eyeing on these palettes for a while now and finally I’ve got it in my hands! Thanks to those super deals that BH Cosmetics occasionally has. Have been playing around with the palettes for sometime now so here’s the review for your viewing pleasure…


Product & Packaging

Love the packaging and that it has a mirror. Compact for traveling however I find it hard to get it to stay open immediately when opening the palette. Perhaps, the magnets are a tad bit too strong. Tend to have eyeshadow fallout when opening the palette after usage. Each palette contains 16 eyeshadows and 4 face powders (2 blushers, 1 bronzer & 1 highlighter).


Average – Good. The blushes and bronzers are very pigmented. Certain eyeshadow colors are more pigmented.  The eyeshadows seem fragile. Product of China.


I closed the palette for the first time and this is what happens… Dang it! Now I have less black to use. But then again, I’ve never hit pan on any eyeshadow before no matter how often I’ve used it. 

Staining.. I noticed colors with red base pigments tend to stain the eyelids; regardless of brands and whatever quality. I have tried removing with wet wipes and makeup remover and this is the best it gets…Yes I did use an eye primer. Just thought you might wanna know. Has anyone experience the same issue with pink and red eyeshadows?

All swatches were done with the NYX Eyeshadow Base in White.

BH Cosmetics San Francisco Palette







Bought it on specials at USD$18.00 (RM57.60) during their 72 hour steals. Normal price is USD$8.95 (RM28.64) each palette. With shipping and handling to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; USD$15.95 (RM51.04). Even with shipping and handling, IMO it’s very much affordable for the quality and amount of colors  you get. You can create endless looks with these palettes.

Place of Purchase

Online at They seem to be having some sale now, so do check it out while you can purchase at a lower price.
