BH Cosmetics 28 Neutral Eyeshadow Palette VS. eBay 28 Neutral Eyeshadow Palette!

Hey there! Recently I've got this 28 neutral eyeshadow palette from eBay(and it was an accident that I got it actually, long story...) and I couldn't decide whether I think it's good or bad...

I then ordered the BH one, which I was originally wanting to buy and then I realised... It is completely different! I just got it but I can see the BIG difference just by comparing the two visually. 

Palette from eBay that I ordered was about 6 €(about 8$) and BH Cosmetics one was somewhere around 16€(21$).


Yes, the eBay one was 10€ cheaper, but man that palette is aaa... As you can see, lighter shades don't even show up or there are no big differences between them. The same is when I try to apply them to my lids. As for the darker ones?  I do prefer them, they're slightly better. Once I get them on my finger they're quite okay but swatching them on my hand or applying them on my lids... I can't really say if it's black or deep maroon. And once I start blending them they magically disappear. What kind of sorcery is that? Oh and I have to be extremely careful with swatching, cause not all of them are the same consistency. Like some of them are soooooo soft that I might break them just by touching.

Swatches(some lighter shades don't show up):

BH Cosmetics

BH Cosmetics offers really similar colours but are in some way better. They are more pigmented and colour seem to be different from one another. There are a shade one or two that aren't really chalky anymore, but they just crumble. Hard to explain. And these aren't as pigmented as the others. And there are maybe two lighter shades that didn't really swatch very well. Other than that, I prefer this palette and I think I can get much more out of it than from the one from eBay. 

Swatches(pretty much every shade is visible and what you see in the pan is what you get in the swatch):

So which one would I recommend? I'd buy the BH Cosmetics one. But I kind of like the darker shades better in the eBay palette, although they don't do their job, the colours are more appealing to me.  Do you know what I mean? :P Like in BH  palette is what you see is what you get, but it's not like that with eBay palette and that is a deal breaker for me.

I hope this was helpful and I hope I helped you make up your mind. If not, I hope you enjoyed and thank you for reading. :)
