Here I’m with another review post. Few days back, I just received a package of love from one of my Instagram friend and she sent me this very cute palette from BH Cosmetics and it’s their ILLUMINATE 12 Color Eye & Cheek Collection by Ashley Tisdale. And this is the BEACH GODDESS palette. This is such a gorgeous palette for everyday looks.

Talking about the palette now, the Illuminate palette comes in a sturdy white cardboard palette casing with pinks and gold playing around. It does have a protective plastic sheet with the shade names written on it. The palette comes with a huge inbuilt mirror too, which is so good. And the palette is so light weight that it can be easily carried to any vacation or on any travel.
The palette has a mix of mattes and shimmers, mostly being shimmery one. This palette is a basic one, which has mostly daily wearable shades, and nothing overdose. The shadows are very soft and very easily blendable. The lighter shades are quite pale and chalky on darker skin tones like me. The shimmers are soft and apply smoothly on the eyelids. Applying the shimmer shadows with fingers worked well rather than with the brush, and also pigmentation wise. The eyeshadows have good pigmentation too. The pinks and the warms browns can be used as blushes and bronzers for the face, they are shimmery, but I’m not a shimmery kind of person, I like my blushes and bronzers/contours to be matte. So, on the whole, this BH Cosmetics Illuminate palette has better served as an eyeshadow palette and not any face/cheek palette for me.
