I saw this palette from BH Cosmetics a couple weeks ago on their Facebook and haaaaaaad to have it! I love space themed things, so this was a no brainer. Eighteen baked eyeshadows that are all galaxy oriented, and are shimmery, gorgeous shades!
If you’ve never used baked eyeshadows, they are a little different than your regular pressed shadows. they are softer, and usually are very shimmery. You can also use them wet, which you can’t really do with a regular pressed eyeshadow (it will create a hard film on top of the shadow) and when you use these wet, the color payoff is really great! Baked eyeshadows are also cool because a lot of the time they have veining of a different color throughout, so they are gorgeous to look at in the pan. It makes them really fit the space theme here :)
Sun: warm gold with red veining. Swatches to a very warm, almost light orange gold.

Comet: Aqua Shimmer.
Earth: Lots of veining of white, blue, and a light blue. Swatches to a sky blue shimmer.Neptune: navy blue shimmer.
Mercury: Reddish brown with white veining. Swatches to a really unique light shimmery brown.Mars: Coppery red shimmer.
Asteroid: Really interested mix of brown and blue. Swatches to a taupe with blue undertones.Uranus: icy blue shimmer.
Moon: Another really unique shade! White and blue base with reddish brown veining. Swatches to this weird color I don’t even know how to describe- purple taupe shimmer crazy weirdly amazing?
Eclipse: Deep eggplant shimmer.
Sometimes with baked shadows, you’ll see colors that look crazy badass amazing in the pan, but when swatched all those colors mix into a really, not so appealing shade. I am really happy that all of these swatch nicely! These apply really well too, nice and evenly, especially when used wet. Overall for the price, I think this is a steal.
