Seeing Green

Besides having a passion for fashion, I also LOVE makeup.  As a child, I watched my mom put on makeup and was so intrigued at how such a miniscule change could make such a big difference.  In college, I worked for the Shiseido and then Estee Lauder counter.  {The Shiseido counter got downsized in College Station.  Go figure!}  So when my cousin, Iris, sent me two eyeshadow palettes, I was in Heaven!  I’m so lucky to have a cousin like her!

I’ve always wanted green eyes.  Being Asian doesn’t help that situation unless you’re the gal from “Big Trouble in Little China“!  So I decided that wearing green eyeshadow was the next best thing!  {I did have a stint when I wore colored contacts before I needed corrective lenses, but that’s done!}  Anyhow, green eyeshadow and coral lips are one of my favorite makeup combinations.  And when I wore it to work, my friend L* complemented me on the green.  Another blog post was born!
So, this part is a bit like “telephone”!  I asked Iris how she found out about bh cosmetics.  Her best friend is a makeup artist and really likes the colors and pigmentation of these shadows.  Iris found the eyeshadow palettes on sale, ordered them, and sent some to me.  Now, I’m telling y’all about it!
Iris sent me 2 bh cosmetics palettes, one shimmer and one matte.  They both have 88 eyeshadows!!  Yes, you read that correctly! EIGHTY EIGHT!!  I am using three different colors on my lids, although it is hard to tell because I am not an expert photographer.  I wear them over my Urban Decay primer potion in Sin, and the shadows last all day.  I’ve only played with the greens and greys, but the pigments have been true so far.  I’m not a makeup expert, but I definitely give this eyeshadow palette two thumbs up!  {If you do need some makeup experts, check out Leticia of Cosmetic Aficionado, Ling of The Best Beauty Blog, or Susan of Novice Style!  Those ladies are fab!}

Happy Monday!  
Has anyone else tried this brand or other products from bh cosmetics?

  1. Aww hun, you look amazing!!! I love green eyeshadow too and for a while, that was the only colour I wore! Thanks for the link love too xo

  2. I have always been intrigued with the color green and think they go perfectly with our asian skin. You have proved me right here as they look lovely on you, but then again everything looks lovely on my pretty Sam ;) Hope you had a great weekend my dear!

  3. PS – how did you make that middle picture with the closeup pop-up bubbles? I was trying to do something similar in Photoshop a few days ago…but gave up.

  4. That shadow is really pretty on you! I really like how you played up the green with the scarf and fab sparkly earrings!

  5. Sam, I love your photography here. Don’t tell me that you’ve set it on a timer because these are so beautifully shot. I’m so impressed with your massive eye color palette. I’ve never seen anything like it before.

    1. M!! That means so much to me, especially coming from a photographer like you! It was done with a remote and tripod! :)

  6. I think this shadow looks amazing on you! I love green and those earrings are really stunning Sam! Come to think of it, I’ve never bought anything from Shiseido…

  7. Sam, this looks sooo pretty on you! I’ve never tried BH Cosmetics myself, but probably need to get on it now too. Thanks for the mention!
