I thought it would be fun to start a new series where I share my makeup must haves with you all. These will be the products that I cannot live without and think are “must haves” for everyone (regardless of skill). To kick off this series I wanted to share with you all my favourite matte eyeshadow pallet, the Modern Mattes eyeshadow pallet from BH Cosmetics. This pallet is vegan, cruelty free and allergy tested (so it won’t hurt your eyes).
I can honestly say that I use this pallet on a daily basis, and have for the past 3 months. It has every colour you could want, and it can be used to create a wide variety of looks. I don’t use the bright colours very often, but it is nice to have them for adventurous days, to add a slight pop of colour to a look or for Halloween. I will say right off the bat that this is not the most pigmented pallet, but it is incredibly easy to build up the colour. In my mind this makes it the perfect pallet for any beginner, as it is a very approachable and easy to use pallet.
This pallet is also very inexpensive considering how many eyeshadows you get. It is $13.99 (US), however it is currently on sale for $8 (US)! Even with the exchange rate, taxes and shipping this pallet is under $20 CND. You can also find these pallets (sometimes) at Marshalls, which is where I found mine.
Below I have included swatches of all the eyeshadows, these are dry swatches and each colour has been swatched twice.
I hope you all enjoyed this first post of my new series! Let me know what products are your must haves.
Until next time internet friends,
