Review on It'sJudyTime BH Comsmetics Palette

SONY DSC

On December 7th one of my favorite Youtubers launched her first costum palette. I have been watching Judy's daily vlog and makeup channel for over a year now and have fallen in love with her and her family. I was thrilled that she partnered up with BH Cosmetics to create a palette with 12 eyeshadows that are perfect for day or night. These shades are hand picked by Judy and feature satin, shimmer and matte finishes. The palette has mostly neutral shades with the exception of two purple and one navy blue shade. This palette is sold on the BH Cosmetics website for $14.95 but act fast! These are Limited Edition. Purchase it here ==> It's Judy Time Palette

I love that this is a palette with colors that are great for everyday and still give you the option for some fun looks with the pop of color. I also like that Judy included a range of different finishes. I love using the matte shades to define my crease and use the shimmer or satin on the lid. My favorites shades from the palette by just the swatches alone are the two bottom on the left. What are your favorite shades?

Here is a photo of the swatches without the flash because we all know how the flash can wash out the vibrancy of the eyeshadows. I have noticed that I do need to use a primer prior to applying eyeshadows to make them more vibrant and last longer. These pictures of the swatches do have a primer underneath, so keep that in mind.

Overall I love this palette and think that the quality of the eyeshadows is great for the price. I would totally recommend this palette to everyone! Don't forget to visit my YouTube Beauty Channel for some makeup tutorials using this palette.

This is definitely a must have palette. Even if you don't normally wear color in your normal makeup routine, these shades will make you think twice. The colors are pigmented, easy to blend, and creamy. I did experience some fall out with some of the darker shades which is to be expected. Overall this is a beautiful palette. Here are some swatches.

 

You may have noticed that the fourth row contains neutrals, I actually like that they included these colors because it gives you more options for wearable looks. Mixing neutrals with colors makes your look more subtle and not so harsh or heavy. You can definitely amp up your look if that is more your style. I have been able to create really dramatic smokey eyes with this palette as well as more toned down day time looks. There is something for everyone. This would make a great Christmas present for any makeup lover, it's never to early to start Christmas shopping right? I might pick up a few for my friends and family. I have also posted some makeup tutorials using this palette on my Youtube channel for some reference. Let me know what are some of your favorite shades from this palette?
