My Take on BH Malibu Eyeshadow and Blush Palette :
Malibu palette is a small compact, sturdy palette with very funky packaging. The cover has a colorful picture of a sea beach. It contains 4 Face powders present in the middle and 16 eye shadows present in adjacent columns with a foldable mirror provided with it. The palette also comes with a magnetic lock. Overall the palette is a travel friendly and will slip into your bag without consuming lots of space. Information about the palette including list of ingredients is mentioned at the back of the palette.
Face Powders: It contains one copper gold bronzer, 1 bubble gum pink blusher, 1 cool toned highlighter, 1 highlighter with pear gold sheen.
Eye shadows: It contains 16 eye shadows with varying finish. Shades ranging from blue, brown, to green and orange are available in this palette. I really would have liked it more if it had a matte black eye shadow too.
Face Powders: These are nicely pigmented and one needs to apply just a single swipe for each time. I was surprised how intensely the blusher is pigmented, its of pretty good quality. The bronzer will give that beautiful sunkissed look we desire. Highlighters have very subtle shimmers and would look great on our Indian skin tones.
Eye shadows: All the pearlescent ones are nicely pigmented and shows up on my pigmented lids even without a primer. Matte shadows are quite chalky and would need layering even with a primer.
Texture & Finish:
Face Powders: Bronzer is a soft shimmery shade, whereas the blush has no shimmers and has satin finish. Highlighters are shimmery but contain subtle shimmer. All the face powders blend well.
Eye Shadows: Matte eye shadows are quite chalky, whereas others come with soft pearl finish.
Staying Power: All products have varying staying power. Staying power of the products is mentioned below without a primer.
Face Powders: All the face powders have great staying power. Even without a face primer they stay for nearly 4 hours on my face.
Eye shadows: Shadows which come with pearlescent finish are long staying and stays on for 4 hours with minimum creasing, whereas matte ones stay for 2-3 hours.
Availability: Its only available at Bh cosmetics website.

My Overall Recommendation: Bh Cosmetics Malibu palette is a great palette comprising of a blusher, bronzer, 2 highlighters and 16 eye shadows with both pearl and matte finish. Eye shadows with matte finish are poorly pigmented, rest all shades are pigmented including face powders. Its compact and travel friendly, we hardly get good products in palette form. So I would definitely recommend this palette to everyone who is looking for an affordable palette containing blushers and eye shadows.
