Hi There! Hope you are having a nice Wednesday morning. Happy Winter solstice everyone! The Winter solstice, also known as midwinter, is an astronomical phenomenon marking the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere this is the December solstice and in the Southern Hemisphere this is the June solstice.Here in the Washington D.C. metro area the weather is pretty nice today with lower in the teens and highs in the mid 40s. With the shortest period of daylight, I thought I would spend the day giving my review of the Urban Luxe 99 Color Eyeshadow Palette from BH Cosmetics. It’s for sale or only $10 at BH cosmetics.
Description: The palette contains a must-have mix of deep smokey shades, lighter neutrals and intense jewel tones. The 99 mattes, satins and shimmers include defining black, gray and charcoal; burnished brown, bronze and beige; majestic purples, eggplant and inky blues; plus a variety of pales, pastels and pops of color to brighten things up. The collection of richly pigmented, blendable shadows allows you to mix, match and move from day to date night with ease.
Verdict: This is one of the perfect neutral shaded for me. Can’t wait to see what looks I can create with this pallet. However, as you can see from the above pictures, some of the lighter shades does not show up in my skin tone at all. Hence, if you are looking for a palette to give you dramatic look this palette is not for you. This palette is perfect for subtle, neutral shades. Overall, I will give it a four star just for some of those very light almost invisible shades. Please note, I have used a shadow primer. A primer can make a big difference on how a shadow comes out. In conclusion, for $10 this is a good, neutral eyeshadow palette you can get. Below is video of some of the looks created by the palette.
Hope you enjoy the post as much as I loved writing it. Let me know what you think about the eyeshadow palette.
