BH Cosmetics Forever Glam & Forever Nude Palettes!

I recently purchased the BH Cosmetics Forever Glam and Forever Nude palettes and wanted to share some swatches with you! Currently the Glam palette is $8.95 and the Nude palette is $10.95, not sure why they are different prices. Each palette comes with 6 eye colors, 2 cheek colors, 1 highlighter and 2 lip colors. Both palettes are plastic and have pretty designs on the front, they feel very sturdy and come with a full size mirror. The Glam is focused more toward a smokey look and the nude is focused more toward a natural look.

BH Cosmetics says:

Forever Glam- Make a seductive statement with this timeless collection of bold and glamorous color! The Forever Glam Eyeshadow, Blush and Lip Color Palette features 6 deluxe size eyeshadows in shimmer, satin and iridescent finishes along with 2 silky blushes and 2 creamy shades of lip color. Create endless looks that are ravishingly sexy and fun by mixing and matching these pumped up shades of GLAM!

Forever Nude- Enchant them all with this timeless collection of sweet and tempting neutrals. The Forever Nude Eyeshadow, Blush and Lip Color Palette features 6 deluxe size eyeshadows in shimmer, satin and matte finishes along with 2 silky blushes and 2 creamy shades of lip color. Create endless looks that are sinfully soft and sexy by mixing and matching these glowing shades of NUDE!

As always I didn't use primer under these swatches. You can tell the Glam palette has more pigmented shades. I really like both of these palettes!

My Vanity Set Up And How You Can Get It To!

I wanted to do a post showing my vanity set up. Mine isn't as extravagant as some but it also didn't cost me an arm and a leg! Mostly everything can be purchased at a Lowe's or Home Depot. The first thing you need to do is find out how big you want your set up to be. 

Things You Will Need:
-A Mirror (mine is a frameless and I got it at Lowes)
-Mirror Mount Hardware (at least one for the bottom of the mirror)
-Plastic Mirror Clips
-2 Vanity Light bars
-Daylight Bulbs

The bulbs were probably the most expensive thing. I'm sure there are some cheaper ones out there but I checked Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot and didn't find any as bright as these. My husband helped me install everything and he has some experience doing electrician work so he was able to wire a switch for the lights and install an outlet near the vanity as well. Please use caution when doing this, you need at least 2 people. The mirror was very heavy and large it took both of us to install it. The table you see in the picture was purchased at a habitat re-store for $25! I love it, it has so much space. The green shelf was purchased at a store we used to have near me called oops. The palettes that are sitting out on the table are stored on an acrylic plate display from target. The acrylic drawers are from Muji, one is the acylic 5 drawer large and the other is the large 2 drawer. The dresser in the other picture is where I store the rest of my makeup, it was purchased at a flea market and my husband and I painted it and replaced the knobs. I am kinda going for like a grey and white theme I guess lol. I am happy with the way it turned out, I always wanted things from Ikea but there isn't one near me and shipping is $300 for something that costs $119. I wasn't going to do that, maybe one day I'll make a trip up to an Ikea but for now this works just fine!
