Hi! If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know I love makeup. If this is your first time here, Hi, and thanks for stopping by. Makeup is the reason I started this blog. I love to review and test out new products and give you my honest review. This is going to be a review on the BH Cosmetics and Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette.
Carli Bybel is a YouTube makeup guru. I’ve been watching her for 3 years now. She teamed up with BH Cosmetics to create this 21 eye shadow and highlight palette. BH Cosmetics is a makeup brand with extremely affordable makeup and brushes. Probably the most affordable makeup brand that I can think of (besides drugstore brands). Carli has over 4 million followers on Instagram and over 5 million YouTube subscribers. I’m sure she could collaborate with a more high end makeup brand than BH Cosmetics but I’m so glad she went with BH so it’s affordable for everyone. She did come out with a palette before this one that I missed out on purchasing. I’m glad I waited to get this one because 11 of the shades are the same from her old palette.
The packaging is so beautiful. It’s a gorgeous white marble on the outside and inside of the palette. If you follow Carli, you know she loves her white marble. So this packaging matches her perfectly. When you open it up it has a mirror, which is great and a quote she is always using. Aspire to Inspire.
The colors are beautiful! I’m guessing the top 15 shades are eye shadows and the rest are highlighters. You could really use all of them for eye shadows. When I swatched them, I could see a pattern with the colors. The top row has coral undertones, middle row has a mauve tone and the bottom row is a warmer brown tone. I love it. The matte shades were harder to swatch. I had to really rub them and build them up to swatch good. I found them a little hard to blend out on the eye but it will eventually blend out the more you work at it. The shimmery shadows are a different story! They’re extremely pigmented and creamy. I couldn’t believe the pigment from just one swipe that they have. The highlight shades are the exact same way. The highlights are super intense. But I love an intense highlight. You can use a light hand when applying them to not be so intense if you want. You have white, silver, bronze, metallic, and golden highlight tones! What more could you want?! It’s great to have those shades all in one palette.
Swatches are from left to right.
So is it Laugh Love Hippie approved??
For only $19.95 this is an awesome palette. The highlight shades alone are gorgeous. Yes, the matte shades were a little hard to blend but it’s not like they didn’t blend out at all. You just really have to blend or it will look patchy. The way the highlight and shimmery shades are, the mattes not blending isn’t even a big deal to me.
Thanks for checking out my review on the BH Cosmetics and Carli Byble Edition Eyeshadow & Highlihgter Palette. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions or if you’ve tried this palette out. Or if you just want to say hi, I’m cool with that too. 🙂
