Eighty Eight is an awesome number!

I recently ordered one of the 88 color palettes from BH Cosmetics!
As you can see from the picture, I chose the Cool Matte Eyeshadow Palette.
I was a little concerned about ordering this as I'm so used to Urban Decay's amazing shadows. BUT it was on sale for about $10 and I couldn't resist!
I was very, VERY pleasantly surprised by the quality of this palette for the price! The regular price is even a bargain at $19.95, it averages out to about $.23 per color! Definitely a good buy for any frugalista!!! These colors are totally pigmented, however not all of them are matte. That's fine with me though! It does seem that the shimmery colors are more pigmented! My next order will be one of the shimmer palettes. I did swatches of ALL 88 colors, they were done with no primer and are definitely brighter with a primer or base.

I still don't think the photos do this palette justice! It's amazing and a must have for anyone who loves to play with color without a huge chunk of your bank account missing!!
