BH Cosmetics Smokey Eyes Palette

Hey guys!!

I'm reviewing a very large palette today so it's gonna be a bit different.
It's the BH Cosmetics 28 Color Palette Smokey Eyes Edition.
I fell in love with this when I saw it online and added it to my basket immediately! :P

Obviously it comes with 28 eyeshadows and they're all fairly dark. I was surprised by the number of pink eyeshadows you get in it, but I suppose they would work with a purple smokey eye :)
The packaging isn't bad, the lid is clear, which is great because you can see al the colors that way, and it's not particularly bulky. However it is quite large so it's not the best for traveling.

Most of the eyeshadows are shimmery, however you do get a few matte ones as well.

The first row is quite disappointing honestly,  the colors are sheer and I had to really layer them so they would show up on the photo.

The second row is a bit better, but compared to the pigmentation found in other BH palettes it's still disappointing.

The third row is what I'm used to! Great pigmentation, smooth texture and they blend nicely.

The fourth row is, again, not as good as it could be. The colors are definitely more buildable than the first row, but you still have to work with them quite a bit to get them to be as vibrant as they are in the photo.

Overall I think I could have spent my money better. The colors look gorgeous in the pan, but they're very difficult to apply and honestly, I don't need (or use) that many pink shades. The palette isn't bad, but it doesn't reach the quality we've all come to expect from BH Cosmetics. Maybe this was just a bad batch (we all know that can happen), however I'm definitely  not willing to buy another one to find out.
