So when I did the Coastal Scents lipstick review, I compared them to the BH ones without ever realising that I’d never even bothered to do a review for them. When I first got them, I’d taken product shots but I held off doing a review since some of the shades that I wanted were constantly out of stock. So I was waiting for them to be restocked so I could just do all of them at once. Then I got distracted by other stuff as usual. I decided not to wait for the rest of my order to come in (it’s just one other lippie anyway), so I broke out the shots I’d already taken, took some new ones and bam, post.
I find it patently ridiculous that with all the holiday items, many of them more grandiose, that this was the package that I was most excited to get in the mail. I think that a lot of it has to do with the aesthetic of the thing, these palettes are like nothing we’ve seen from BH so far.
When I first heard about this collection on Instagram I was so stoked. I pretty much stalked the the BH site and signed up for email alerts and bought what I wanted five minutes after I got the email. Unfortunately there isn’t very much to the collection at this point, I was told that later on in the summer highlighters would also be launching, but right now the collection consists of two full face palettes, six lip and cheek tints and six lip glosses. Since I don’t wear lip gloss, those were a hard pass, but I did pick up one of the palettes and three of the lip & cheek tints. I almost got all of them, but some of the colours straight up looked like they would do my beautiful brown no justice. I also went ahead and did my normal summer haul of new BH products, plus every single shade of liquid lipstick that I’ve ever wanted since the stars seemed to align and they were all in stock at the same time. I’ll have those up soon-ish. I’ve been pretty shaky on posts lately cause I started a new job a month ago and it’s a grown up one so by the time I get home in the evenings I barely have time to get my stuff ready for work the next day, pictures and posts get forgotten somehow.
Do you guys have any idea how long I’ve been stalking the BH cosmetics site for all the shades to come back into stock?!?
I mean they’re friggin unicorns! New shades would debut and then all the old shades that I wanted would be out of stock with crazy three month re-stock dates. Finally, when I did my usual summer haul of new products, all of the shades including the new ones were in stock and I got the nine shades that I really wanted. But truth be told, I should have just gotten all of them because wow!
This post comes to you today, courtesy of being stranded in a parking lot and having to wait for a tow truck to come and rescue my butt. Luckily, I’m stranded in the parking lot of m favourite coffee shop so that takes some of the edge off. I usually do my posts from home, so I don’t know what made me take my laptop this morning when I came out to run errands, but thank goodness that I did. This though, was a post that I hadn’t really planned on doing maybe ever, but as it turns out these were the pictures that were already edited and on the laptop, everything else is on the portable, which I didn’t take with me.
