Boho Chic Cosmetics | Review and Swatches

Hey y’all! I am so excited to bring you today’s review!

I recently received some items from Boho Chic Cosmetics. Below is some information about the brand!

Yeiza was kind enough to send me four full size products and two samples. I received:

  • Lavender eyeshadow
  • School of Fish eyeshadow
  • Setting Powder
  • Cassis Violette Macaron {Parisian Macarons Lip & Cheek Collection}
  • Sunflower eyeshadow sample
  • Tulips blush/eyeshadow sample

Lavender eyeshadow

I love this shadow. It’s everything I want from a lavender eyeshadow. It’s very light and pastel, but the color can be built up. It shows up beautifully on the eye. I’m obsessed with it as a crease color. I have nothing like it in my collection, and I think I’ll get a lot of use of it this spring/summer. 

School of Fish eyeshadow

 Seafoam green with a hint of shimmer

FullSizeRender 4

$4 for 3 grams

Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Certified Organic Seaweed Extract, Jojoba oil, Boron Nitride .

This color is beautiful! The slight shimmer in it makes it the perfect sea foam green. It’s like a shimmery version of Colourpop’s pressed shadow in Checkmate and I’m excited to use them together. It applied well over just eyeshadow primer, but I like to spray my brush with a bit of MAC Fix+ to intensify it and bring out more of the sheen. I can’t wait to wear this all spring!

Setting Powder

a weightless, translucent setting powder. 

FullSizeRender 9

$8.50 for 10 grams or $17 for 20 grams

Ingredients: Arrowroot Powder, Organic Kale Powder, Kaolin Clay,  Organic Certified Seaweed Extract, Non-GMO Vitamin E, Silica. Lavender Essential oil.

This is a very nice setting powder. It’s so soft to the touch, and it seemed to blur my pores. I have very dry skin right now so it did cling a bit to my drier patches, but all setting powders do. With that being said, I do think this could work with all skin types. I used it to bake under my eyes and it locked down my concealer quite nicely.  I’d definitley say this is comparable to higher end products, and I’m happy with it.

Cassis Violette Macaron {Parisian Macarons Lip & Cheek Collection}

a purple/pink shade.

FullSizeRender 7

$10 for 8 grams or $1.50 for a sample clamshell

Ingredients:  Macadamia nut oil,  Safflower oil infused with  Green tea leaf,  Almond oil infused with Vanilla Beans,  Cocoa Butter, Candelilla wax, Mica,  Coconut oil,  Vitamin E, Titanium Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate (vegetable derived).

This color is everything. It’s the perfect pinky/purple shade. The formula is so insanely moisturizing and I feel like I have a super hydrating balm on my lips. The color is buildable from sheer to a more medium coverage. I don’t mind that it’s not fully opaque because of how creamy and soft the formula is. I wouldn’t want it sliding all over my lips/face. I haven’t tried it as a blush yet, but I think for dry skinned folks like me it’ll be perfect! I definitely recommend picking one (or all) of these up if you love tinted balms. It lasted about 4 hours through drinking and eating with even fading.

Sunflower eyeshadow

a yellow-brown shade with hints of gold. Satin finish.


$3 for 3 grams

Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Iron Oxide, Boron Nitride, Tin Oxide,  Jojoba oil infused with Rose Petal & Lavender.

This is such a pretty gold. I used it all over my eyes/as a transition color and it blended out perfectly. It has just the slightest bit of sheen when applied with a blending brush, but packed on with a flat brush it really brings out the glow. I love how I was able to get two different looks out of it depending on what type of brush I used. I think this could be a staple in everyone’s collection because the possibilities seem endless. My darker skinned friends could even use this as a beauitful golden highlight. I might pick this color up in a full size jar because it’s that good.

Tulips blush/eyeshadow

IMG_0203a sheer, soft berry color with a peachy-pink sheen.

$3 for 3 grams, $5.50 for 5 grams, or $11 for 10 grams

Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Iron Oxide, Slica, Boron Nitride, Jojoba oil infused with Rose Petal & Lavender.

It was really hard to capture this blush in pictures, but trust me when I say it’s beautiful in real life. I don’t generally go for loose powder blushes because they seem to cling to dry spots a bit more, but this one went on so smoothly. The color is beautiful. It’s a subtle wash of color, but you can definitely pick up the berry tones as well as the peachy sheen in real life. I haven’t tried it as an eyeshadow yet, but I think I would personally prefer it as a blush. I’m just so happy with how it looks on my skin and I think the color would flatter a variety of skin tones.

Swatched with a flat eyeshadow brush. Left side over primer, right side over bare skin.

My Look

I’m no makeup artist, but here’s the look I came up with!

  • Sunflower in the crease and inner corner
  • Lavender in the crease, outer v, outer lower lash line
  • School of Fish on the lid and inner lash line
  • Tulips as a blush (hard to see in photographs)
  • Cassis Violette Macaron on the lips




The Packaging

FullSizeRender 6

Everything was sent to me in a bubble mailer. There was tissue paper wrapped around the little envelope all the products were in. No jars came broken. All the jars had a safety seal around them so there were no spills, and the sifters come with a little cover over them. The ingredients and name are listed on the back. The packaging is simple, but I love it. The art work is so adorable. The sifters are also so useful. No extra product will come spilling out and you can control how much you get out. I had a bit of an issue initally getting School of Fish into my lid, but it wasn’t that big of an issue. I’m also obsessed with the packaging the Macarons lip and cheek color comes in. It’s so simple and sleek!

Overall Thoughts

There isn’t a product here I didn’t fall in love with straight away. Everything applied beautifully to my skin and I don’t have anything bad to say. As with loose powders, it does take a bit more work to apply, but I had no issues building up color where I wanted it. The price point is so ridiculously good for the quality. Check out Boho Chic cosmetics and pick up a few items to try! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
