It seems like just yesterday that I was watching Carli Bybel on YouTube when she had less than 2,000 subscribers. I remember stumbling upon her tutorials and thinking to myself how absolutely gorgeous she is! I have to support Carli because she’s very inspiring and has stayed true to her roots. She’s also from the same area of New Jersey that I’m from, so Jersey girls stick together! Carli honestly could have designed a palette with just about any makeup brand or company, so when she chose to go with BH Cosmetics so that everyone could afford it, it made me love her even more. Working hard, reaching success and still remembering your roots is so important. I’ve got full swatches of this entire palette inside. This entire palette costs only $12.50USD, which is INSANE! Wait until you see the swatches…
The Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette went on sale at 3am EST September 8th. The launch was absolutely insane. There were thousands of people trying to access the website and the website itself crashed. Sometime by the afternoon after some persistance, I was able to get through and order mine.
The palette did sell out temporarily, but BH Cosmetics and Carli have promised that every single person who wants one will get one. They have ordered more and are currently waiting for new shipments. Again, this is just one of the many reasons I love Carli. She is making sure every single one of her fans and makeup lovers everywhere who want this palette will actually get it.
The palette itself is lightweight and travel friendly with gorgeous white and silver packaging. It contains 10 eyeshadow shades and 4 highlighter shades, although you can of course use the highlighter shades as eyeshadow shades as well.
As soon as I dipped my fingers into this palette I knew it was a winner. Every single shade is velvety soft, smooth, blendable, and full of pigmentation. There is not a single shade in this palette that is blotchy or doesn’t apply with full color. It’s probably one of my favorite palettes ever for that reason.
TOP ROW: The top row of the palette has more cool-toned mauve and purple toned eyeshadow shades. 4 out of the 5 shades are matte, with one being a stunning pink shimmer. The matte eyeshadows were out of this world pigmented and easy to work with.
MIDDLE ROW: This row is full of your champagne, bronze, and chocolate shades. You’ve got 4 shimmers and 1 matte shade. Each color was so brilliant and full of shine. That first shade all the way to the left is a breathtaking pinkish-gold duo-chrome.
BOTTOM ROW: The bottom row contains the 4 highlighter shades, but you can use these on your eyes as well. These were probably my favorite, simply because they are so buttery soft and blend like a dream. I love a stellar highlighter and these made my cheekbones look incredible. I love the mix of eyeshadow and highlighters in this palette.
Overall, I highly, highly recommend you purchase this palette and add it to your collection. It’s a major beauty bargain and the formula on these are perfection. You get a great mix of shimmers and mattes, as well as shades you can use on both your eyes and your face.
