Missy Lynn BH Cosmetics Review & Swatches


I've finally gotten my tiny mittens on this palette, I have been lusting for it forever!
For some reason I imagined the ordering process from BH Cosmetics to be more difficult being an American site and all ... But I must say it was so simple and so quick, so kudos BH Cosmetics!

Missy Lynn is a well known YouTube makeup guru from the States. Not only is she an amazing Makeup Guru but also an active military member. Talk about multitasking! This palette features 6 eyeshadows and 2 highlighting powders ranging from warm browns to rose golds complementing every skin tone.
Going for the optics first, how pretty is the packaging?! The whole palette is not too small or too big and comes with its own mirror making it perfect for those on the go and busy bees! There's a nice little quote underneath the picture 'Start with Confidence, Finish with Success' which I think is a nice little touch. Also note the military theme with the dog tag...

*As you can see I also purchased BH Cosmetics HD Brow Pencil. Do let me know if you want an individual review on this product. What I like most about it is that it comes with a tiny brush* 

As you know I'm a multi purpose user. The 4 shades are eyeshadows BUT I have used the slight peachy shade ( 1st from left, second row) for my cheekbones. It really reminds me of Sleek's Sahara Cheek Colour. In fact, I think most of the 6 shades can be used as either eyeshadow, cheek colours or highlighters...okay perhaps not the purple and the deep purple shade....
The colours are stunning and suitable for every skin tone. I never want to say 'oh this shade is perfect for dark skin girls' etc. but undoubtedly Missy picked these colours with WOC in mind while still making these shades universal and suitable for all skin shades.
Both Highlighting colours are divine and perfect for summer. I can just see myself dabbing a bit of the more golden highlighter at the top of my cheekbones for that extra bit of golden glow look this summer! 
Some swatches, as you can see the colours are very pigmented and soft. My personal faves are the bronze / golden shades in the palette.
It really says something for Bloggers / YouTubers to get the chance to create makeup, Missy is only paving the way for more darker skinned YouTubers and Bloggers yet to come! YouTubers have such a massive audience that in only makes sense to get their input. With more and more new makeup releases it's nice to know that WOC are heard and are given the chance to create such stunning items. 

You can get your BH Palette directly from BH Cosmetics. It's currently priced at only 8.99$ + an extra 8$ for shipping. I remember ordering it during the weekend and arriving mid-week (Wednesday I think so the postage was fairly quick!)

Do let me know your thoughts on this palette & what do you think of YouTubers bringing out their own line of cosmetics / having a say in make up being created or selected?
