Review and Swatches: BH Cosmetics Spotlight Highlight Palette

I am the biggest fan of BH Cosmetics products, from their eyeshadows to their eyeliner, so when they announced they were bringing out two new highlighting palettes, I waited impatiently until they went live on their website, and then pounced.

I picked up the more wearable, everyday highlighting palette; Spotlight. The other palette, Backlight, looks gorgeous with its iridescent unique shades, but I thought I would get more use out of the Spotlight Palette.

Firstly, I love how affordable all of BH Cosmetics' products are. This six pan highlighter retails for just $16.99 USD, but in my opinion, is just as good quality as a highlighter palette worth $100!

The Spotlight palette is very sleek with a magnetic vertical flip up opening, and contains a large mirror. The six highlighting pans are generous in size, with 33 Grams of product in total, meaning you can pack on that glow and not worry about running out any time soon.

This palette has been designed to flatter all skin tones, with shades from pearly white, all the way up to bronze. I find, as someone with very pale skin, that all shades but the two darkest (Allure and Radiance) can be used as true highlighter shades on me, but the latter can be used as eyeshadow or highlighters for my décolletage.

The shades are so gorgeous. The lightest shade; Ethereal, is a pearly white duochrome shade that has a subtle slight pink/red shift in the light. The second lightest, Glow, is a gorgeous light champagne colour. Dream is a copper shade, while Radiance is a beautiful bronze colour. Allure and Vivid are two rose gold shades, although Allure is darker and has a bit more brown to it.

As for the quality of these highlighters, I am beyond impressed. They are so buttery and creamy, and very pigmented. The highlighters in this are really good quality and don't have that glitter bomb effect on the face. They aren't chunky, and they aren't chalky or dry. They can be used with an extremely light hand, or very easily built up to an extremely bright blinding look. I use this on bridge of my nose, brow bone, cupids bow and cheekbones, and feel like I'm visible from space!

This palette has actually been called a dupe for the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Highlighting Palette. I don't have it so I can't compare unfortunately, but it looks similar in consistency from the swatches I have seen online. These highlighters are actually a tad less glittery, but still as intense as the ABH ones.

I would highly recommend this palette, and I actually have to stop myself from buying a backup (or two!) of it! It is super high quality, and so affordable (I personally would have still been happy with this even if it cost me 4x as much!)

You can purchase from the BH Cosmetics website.
