I recently purchased the Bh Cosmetics Special Occasion palette. This is one of those must have palettes from Bh cosmetics. (Click here to see my other suggestions for must have palettes from Bh Cosmetics). Due to the versatility of this palette is can be a staple in your make up collection.
I know that this palette is titled “special occasion” but I feel like due to the colors you can easily create a day or a night time look with this palette. And it also has blushes and highlighters that are included in it. This is a good set to travel with because it has so many colors, blushes, and a highlighters; you would not need to travel with any other palette but this one.

The blushes are pretty decent in the fact that they are pigmented. Being darker skinned I had no issue with the blush showing up my skin. Keep in mind that when I used the blush, I used the darker pinker and red toned blushes. I had to use this blush sparingly because it actually showed up too pigmented on my skin. I did use my Bh Cosmetics brushes to smooth it out (click here to see a review on the brushes).
I also used the highlighter, the bronzing type highlighter. It did not provide a prominent highlight like I wanted but it was decent enough. I cannot see myself getting into all the highlights because I do not think they are made for my skin tone. There is literally a white colored highlighter in the palette which would not work for me.
Below is a swatch of the darker shades, meaning the right three rows of the palette. I am more of a dramatic type girl so these shades were my favorite. They were highly pigmented and they were also more metallic.
The left three rows are swatched below and they are the lighter shades. I did not enjoy them so much because they just blended in to my skin. It is not a bad thing, but if you want to go for a no make up make up look then these lighter colors would be better for you. There is not real drama in them and they just kind of fade out. I did find some of the lighter colors useful for the highlight under my brow though.
Here are the looks that I came up with. Notice that I like for the make up to be more dramatic. And aside the Bh cosmetics special occasion palette here is the link to the hair that I have. As far as the lip color these two NYX lip color came in a kit (click here to buy) I put this lip collection in my blog post on NYX make up must haves (click here). But the individual colors are as follows the grey color AKA Stone Fox (click here) and the darker burgundy color AKA Oh, Put It On (click here). If you like my hair it is the Bobbi Boss Xenon Wig in the Color 3T1B/GWHT (click here to buy).
