BH Cosmetics Spotlight Highlight Palette
BH Cosmetics is well known for their affordable products; the Spotlight Highlight palette has been deemed a dupe for the Anastasia Glow Kits. Keep reading to find out if this palette lives up to it’s reputation! I have to admit, I got this palette because I saw a whole bunch of positive reviews; so I had pretty high expectations. For $16.99USD (approx $24NZD) you are getting six highlighters; which is excellent bang for your buck! Not only that, but they are cruelty free, gluten free, vegan, dermatologically tested and allergy tested. I can’t find on their website what exactly ‘allergy tested’ means, but I have contacted BH Cosmetics to ask. I bought this palette directly from the BH Cosmetics website here, I’m not sure what shipping is to NZ because I had it sent to the UK while I was over there. Inevitably this palette has had a lot of comparisons the the Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) glow kits; given that they are arguably the most popular highlighter palettes on the market right now. I have the Glow Kit in Gleam, which has gold and pink tones, but definitely not exact colour matches. In comparing the formula, the ABH powders are softer and more finely milled than BH Cosmetics (BHC). Both brands powders are buildable and you can achieve natural or intense finish. The BHC powders have more colour pigment; whereas the ABH powders have a more sheer glow. The ‘better’ formula really is down to preference. There is a really great variety of tones in this palette, yellow gold, bronze gold, baby pink, warm pink, neutral and white. I use this in my pro MUA kit because it can work with a large variety of makeup looks and skin tones. I also find these can double up beautifully as an intense shimmer eyeshadow.
I really enjoy using this palette in my kit, and I highly recommend it as a good quality, affordable highlight palette.
