This was the best picture I could take that showed the text because the packaging is very reflective.

BFF Shades

On the back of the palette, it states that the flow was designed to use each row for a look. Per the packaging “each row contains a transition shade, lid shade, and crease shade.” The swatches were all applied to my bare arm with my fingers. Here are the shades and descriptions:

My Thoughts

BFF is one of my first palettes from BH Cosmetics and I have to say I’m very pleased. It is reasonably priced and you can get so many looks from it. I found the mattes to be pigmented, buildable, and blendable, and applied better over a primed and set base. They were patchy when I didn’t set my eyes first or when I used a primer like Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. The shimmers were just okay when applied with a brush but the magic happened with I used my finger. Baby! Those shimmers were shimmering, okay??

Overall this palette is great for those who like variety with one palette. For those with deep/dark skin who like to wear a deeper shade in the outer V, you may have to pull in another palette for that. Wine & Dine and OOTD might not cut it. Another good thing is I didn’t experience much fallout. I was able to do my face first as long as I didn’t pack color on my brush.

Do you have this palette? If so, how do you use it? Leave a comment below. Check out my previous eyeshadow review here.
