BH Cosmetics is launching their new Take Me Back To Brazil Rio Edition Palette on Wednesday, 8.08! This is a newer edition following up their first two previous Take Me Back To Brazil Palettes. Now we have the Rio Edition ($18) which features 32 shimmery pressed pigments and two duo-chrome glitters and one matte black transformer. We always love BH because you get so many shades for such a great value – only $18 for 35 shades!
Dang, BH has jumped on the Take me to Brazil train hard and are riding it all the way! This is the 3rd version! This one, in contrast to prior sister palettes, is a fully shimmer palette (aside from the one matte black in the bottom). This is a pro and a con for this newest addition, in my opinion. It is such a gorgeous palette! These fun pops of color are perfect lid shades to add come vibrance to your look! And we all LOVE shimmer shades on the lid, don’t we?! This palette gives you basically every shimmery colorful shade you could possibly need!
However, the fact that there are no mattes in the palette other than one black, that can create a bit of trouble when it comes to creating a full look. Not only is this palette tricky in the sense that there are no matte shades, there are also no simple brown or neutral brown shades that can be used to blend into the crease anyway. In other words, this is the palette you need to supplement other palettes It’s a companion palette, but not a once stop shop.
