The BH Cosmetics San Francisco Palette has been out in the market for quite sometime now. It is one of the three palettes released by the brand, which provides beauty afficionados with 16 eye shadow shades and 4 face powders (2 blushes, 1 bronzer, and 1 highlighter). The other two palettes released with this one are the Hollywood Palette and the Malibu Palette.
I decided to get the San Francisco palette because the variation of shades of this one is more wearable and suit my taste more. The color range in the San Francisco Palette is more on the neutral side, with cooler undertones, as compared to the other two.
What I like about this palette is that you get a lot for the price! I got mine for Php599 (roughly $13 when converted), and that is way cheaper than the price that I had to pay for my Urban Decay palettes. The price is definitely affordable, considering that you get a lot of products.
The pigmentation of this palette is so-so. Of course, I learned to manage my expectations because I’m paying the cheap price, but in fairness, the color payoff is not bad. NOT AT ALL. Some colors need building up, but that’s absolutely okay!
Another thing that I also like about this palette is that it doesn’t have that much fallout! In my opinion, this has lesser fallout than my Urban Decay Naked 2. Not having fallout gives this palette extra points!
Of course, it is but automatic for me to like an all-in-one palette. Being a mom to two kids, I don’t have always enough time to do my makeup. Thus, all-in-one palettes like this is right up my alley because I don’t have to use other products just to complete a look (aside of course from the foundation, brow pencil, etc. you get what I mean)!
When it comes to the powders on this palette, I must say I am pretty impressed with the blushes and bronzer. The highlighter is meh, but the other three are amazing, with good color payoff that gives satin-y finish to the skin.
All in all, I am enjoying this palette. In fact, MORE THAN I EXPECTED TO. :D
I’m happy to get this at such an affordable deal. It is in no way as awesome as the Urban Decay palettes in terms of the consistency and finish of the products, but I can say that the BH Cosmetics San Francisco palette isn’t lagging far behind.
I’d also have to mention the cute packaging of this palette! If you’re a sucker for products with cute packaging, then you know that you have to have this in your collection.
