BH Cosmetics 88 Tropical Matte Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

The BH Cosmetics website on the  88 Tropical Matte palette:
Warm up your makeup with year-round, summer-inspired beauty. This 88 Color Tropical Matte Eyeshadow Palette contains mostly pastel eyeshadow shades ranging from blues and greens to pinks and lilacs.

One random night i was bored i decided to do some swatches of my BH Cosmetics 88 Tropical Matte palette. The colors are on the pale warmer side but the pigmentation is amazing. I wanted a palette to have some color but not the bright in your face colors.

So here are some swatches.

P.S. Not the best lighting but you can get an idea of the pigmentation and colors available in the palette.

Coralberry vs Vegas Volt

Hey again guy! I recently been finding myself on a all things coral kick. Particularly coral and orange-based lipsticks. So you can only imagine my anticipation for the soon to be released MAC collection All Things Orange. More on that soon :)

So to hold me over until then, I recently added Revlon's Coralberry to my collection. And I have no regrets there. It is creamy and has a decent wear-time. Even with eating and drink the colour was still noticeable afterwards.

However I noticed that it was pretty similar in colour to Vegas Volt by MAC. So I decided to do some swatch comparisons.

Both looking more pink than coral in this lighting.

Nice sleek black packaging of both

Vegas Volt has a richer creamer more texture and is more pigmented, but i love that Coralberry is a more toned-downed version of Vegas Volt which makes it great for everyday wear.

Can a girl only have one lipstick and nail polish?

So i made a BH Cosmetics order recently and my mom got the package yesterday. So i am waiting for her to ship it to Jamaica alone with some other goodies i had ordered before. 

My aunt was curious to what i had ordered so i told her cosmetics. She was like you only need one nail polish and lipstick. Seriously? This was coming out of the mouth of another woman, grant you and no offence to her but she has never been one for keeping up appearances. 

But still what woman wants only one nail polish? What could be that one colour she would wear all the time forsaking all other colours until that bottle is finished? I know personally i could never do that. EVER! I am a straight up nail polish junkie, the kind who has ten shades of the same colour and why not they are all different to me. Not to mention my new found and ever growing obsession with lipsticks. A MAC store opened in Kingston last year and i fell in love. Thus far i own seven MAC lipsticks and a liplass and most definitely plan on getting more. Even if my pocket gets upset lol.

This is my "go to" stash that i have out on my vanity. And have another order of coming in from When all that i ordered is added to this current collection that's when i think it would be  more suitable to say i don't need another lipstick. However! Wanting another lipstick is a whole other story!

What do you think can a girl only have one nail polish and lipstick?
