Hot Topic Beetlejuice Handbook for the Recently Deceased eyeshadow palette swatches + makeup looks

Purchased by Me buttonHey everyone! I have several makeup/swatch posts that I’ll be sharing with you over the next week (two weeks?), starting with an eyeshadow palette from Hot Topic I picked up about a month ago, the Handbook for the Recently Deceased, which is a reference from the movie Beetlejuice. If you’ve never watched Beetlejuice, you should do yourself a favor and watch it before Halloween (or really, anytime of the year!). I need to rewatch it soon, I haven’t seen it in much too long.

First I’ll show you a look at the packaging, then the shadows and swatches, and finally the three different eye looks I created with this palette. Let’s get started!

The packaging seems sturdy and well-made. Some of the palettes at Hot Topic have very narrow openings and it’s hard to get product out, but this one bucks that trend.

These 6 all seem fairly soft but not patchy.

Overall, I’m really pleased with this purchase. I’ve already gotten quite a lot of mileage out of it. My favorite shade is definitely Sandworm, but Bio-Exorcist is also so dang pretty. I’d love to know what your favorite shade and your favorite makeup look is!
