Product Review: The Missy Lynn Palette from BH Cosmetics

bh cosmetics missy lynn palette review

I'm super excited to be doing today's product review because it was a project from one of my favorite YouTube beauty ladies, Missy Lynn. If you are not familiar with her, this gorgeous girl won the NYX Face Awards in 2013, and has a fan base of over 300K on YT.

When she announced that she had a collaboration coming up with BH Cosmetics, there was a collective cheer from not only the beauty community, but especially the community's women of color. We have to support each other, so of course, I had to get my hands on it.

Priced at $14.95, the Missy Lynn Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette contains 6 eyeshadow shades and 2 baked highlighters that she hand picked for the collection. According to the BH Cosmetics website, "It's the perfect on-the-go palette for anyone looking to glam up their look from day-to-night." I have to agree for several reasons:

  • The price point
There are lots of places to get an inexpensive eye shadow palette, but the quality of these (and most eyeshadows from BH,) is great. The shades in the Missy Lynn palette are very pigmented and have an almost-creamy consistency. 

The shadows themselves are large, coming in bigger than the size of a quarter. You'd pay $10 for one MAC shadow and $32 for a mineralized skinfinish powder. She also posted comparisons of other popular highlighters on Instagram
  • The colors are well-coordinated for a multitude of  every-single-day looks that can be simple or dramatic. I've even used the highlighters as shadows.
In the palette, you receive a 
    • matte bone-white
    • shimmery brown
    • matte milk-chocolate brown
    • matte orange-brown
    • matte medium purple
    • matte dark purple
    • gold baked highlighter
    • rose gold highlighter
  • It's the perfect size to keep in your purse to switch up your look while you're out. It comes with  a very large mirror inside and it's not going to take up a ton  of precious space. I also love the quote she included. "Start with confidence. Finish with success." We all need a little reminder throughout the day.

Overall, I believe this palette is totally worth the hype and money. As an owner of tons of eyeshadow, I know that I have a couple of similar colors in my collection, but the portability and the highlighters make this worth the purchase. If you're a makeup minimalist that likes to keep it simple, this is for you. If you travel, this palette is for you. If you're getting into the highlighter craze but don't want to blow $30+ on one single product, this is a good place to start.  Missy Lynn did us a tremendous favor with this one.

If you're interested in picking this up, head over to BH Cosmetics website.
