The shadows are soft, smooth, pigmented, and buildable. Some of the shadows can be a bit powdery since they are quite soft. But still, this is definitely one of the better palettes from BH Cosmetics and personally one of my favorites. Definitely get this palette if you can.

Quick Review: BH Cosmetics Nude Rose Palette

The Nude Rose 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette originally costs around $20, but you can get it for a cheaper price whenever it’s on sale. I got this for around $12 including tax.
The palette comes in a medium tin box. The color selection isn’t really impressive. There’s not much contrast at all! I mean there’s only 1 dark shade, 2 medium, and the rest are light.

Another downfall is that the shadows are quite sheer. Especially if you don’t use a primer. I didn’t use any primer while swatching so it took a bit to build them up. But they do perform  better with a primer, but best with a creamy eyeshadow base like NYX Jumbo pencils. My Urban Decay primer potion alone wasn’t enough for the lighter shades.
There were some pros: they are smooth, soft, easy to blend, and semi-buildable.

Overall: It’s an okay palette. There weren’t anything special or unique about it. I wouldn’t recommend this palette since the shadows were too sheer and it’s not a stand alone palette. Even though they did include a dark shade, it wasn’t dark enough. I had to go back in with another palette to darken the outer corners of my eyes.
Save your money and get another palette.
