BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Palette Swatch & Review

Today I'll be reviewing the Galaxy Chic Palette! I found out about the Galaxy Chic Palette on tumblr and I was so intrigued with this palette because of the Galaxy theme going on! I'm all for that haha. The price was to die for too -- it's such a steal. How could I say no!!



Galaxy Chic (here)
Brand: BH Cosmetics
The palette comes with 18 Baked eyeshadows.
It has a mirror inside and the palette itself is about 8" x 4.5".

I'll start with the swatches, then my overall experience and thoughts on this product!

The top row consists of these colors. I actually had a hard time swatching these colors enough that they would show up on my arm LOL. They have more a pink-red hue/tone to them than the rest! Very rosy, light and sheer~ Cosmic and Milky Way are actually more purpley than the rest of the top rows, I have a better image later on in this post of the two close up!

Middle row, mostly your blues. They're all pretty distinctive of one another. I really love Saturn -- it's a gorgeous light gold color.

Most of your neutrals in this last row! These were easier to swatch than the first row, probably because these are more opaque in color. I think the colors in this row match so perfectly with one another ahh.

Close up comparison swatches of the similar eyeshadows in this palette. 
(Swatched about 4 times each)

Electra and Meteor are incredibly alike but not 100%. Hopefully my camera captured it well enough but Electra has a little more blue to it than Meteor, Meteor has more white/is slightly lighter in color.

Cosmic and Milky way are both the lightest purple eyeshadows in this palette. Look at how pretty they are *o*

My favorites? I really like Saturn, Mars, Aphrodite, Mercury and Prometheus! 


The quality of the palette is really nice for the price. All of the colors in this palette are shimmery and so pretty. It does tend to fade though if you're not using primer and lots of fall outs/flakes when applying. I read some people claim it's not very blendable but I think it does a fine job blending. It's like a sort of loose powder when first applied. I think using a primer would be a good way to prep for this eyeshadow if you don't already use primer! It keeps the eyeshadow in place longer and would cause less fade.
  • Cons: Flakey/Lots of fall out, lots of building up required if you're looking for a more opaque color, fades easily/wears off quickly without primer.
  • Pros: Gorgeous palette, blendable, beautiful colors, amazing value
Overview:
It's a beautiful palette. The colors are really pretty and there's a nice variety to choose from in this palette. I also love the Galaxy theme! However, the product does tend to flake a lot, there's a lot of fall out and it's not very pigmented (at least, a majority aren't & not with one swatch/application). You would need to apply/build up quite a bit if you want a more opaque result. But as mentioned before, I think using a primer would be best suited for this palette as I don't think the product itself would last very long and would be more pigmented when using an eyeshadow primer! If you like a more semitransparent/semi-opaque color, this product would be really great for you~

Thanks for reading!! c:
