Simply put I absolutely love these lipsticks !! My favourite out of the three is Strawberry Daiquiri but I love all three of them!  I find them moisturizing which is a pleasant surprise considering they are matte lipsticks. There is no "smell" emitting from these lipsticks which is a big bonus for me ! I got mine off when they had that yearly NYX sale so they set me back $4.00 each !! Crazy cheap !!! I love these so much that i ordered more !!

BH Cosmetics Brush Sets Review

Posted by jacqui at 5:29 AM 6 comments

 My daughter Leila lovesss packages !!

little miss taking photos with the box. LOL!

I recently ordered some brushes from
I got the 24 piece synthetic brush set RRP:$28.00
& the 15 piece wild purple brush set RRP:$25.00
Also grabbed myself a mini makeup brush belt RRP:$7.00

15 PC WILD PURPLE BRUSH SET came with a synthetic leather roll up brush case with tie up closure. Personally I would have liked a magnetic closure but anyway still looked pretty professional

 I really liked the color of these brushes !
(purple is my fave!)
The brushes and case did have a "plastic" smell to it was expected.
Three of the brushes came with a brush guard that was made of hard plastic.

These are the brushes without the plastic packaging and pvc brush guards.
Looks decent enough..right?

                                                                              The face and shading brushes from the purple set. In fairness they are very soft..maybe a little too soft for my liking.

24 Piece Brush Set came with a synthetic croco leather brush roll
also in black similar to the one with the 15pc only shiny and much bigger !

A few of the eye brushes on the 24pc is really very similar.. some might say they are the same.. the only difference is the angle of the brush bristles.

The blender brush (3rd from left) is a little disappointing. It is way too flimsy to be able to blend out harsh lines.

 These are probably some of the brushes that I would definitely use from the 24pc set. Although I don't know why they added a sponge tip applicator.

The brushbelt is NOT a MINI !
I love how this belt has a flap to protect the brushes!
I guess you could load this up with your fave brushes
then off you go !
I was pleasantly surprised at the size of this belt,
from the photos on the website it doesnt seem like
    much but its a great sized belt !

 storage for 12 brushes and a large single compartment for
other bits and bobs like cotton tips & sponges.
I love this belt !!

The adjustable buckle and fastener on this is divine !
So easy to adjust without much effort !
A little tip though the belt runs a little on the small
side so if you are a fuller figured lady this might not
be the right belt for you.
