I get a lot of comments asking about more affordable eyeshadow palettes, so when I find one I like, I’m excited to share it!

BH Cosmetics sent me their Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Palette, and I was eager to try this for two reasons: The range of vivid colors is perfect for the upcoming seasons, and I’ve never tried baked eyeshadows before. So when I put these shadows to the test, I was pleasantly surprised to see they were so nicely pigmented! I’ve swatched the colors below, and here’s a tip when you use these: If you’re laying down a base color, only using one color all over, or using a lighter color to highlight your lids, use the shadow wet. Take the shadow with your brush and give it a spray (either with something like a setting spray or even a spray bottle of water) and apply; it’ll make the color show up much more intensely.
