I have been following Carli Bybel on YouTube and Instagram for a few years now, so you can just imagine my excitement when I found out that her collaboration palette with BH Cosmetics was being sold in my town. I was lucky enough that an old friend of mine (shout out to Emma 🙂 ) worked in the pharmacy that it was being sold and she told me as soon as they came in.
This palette consists of 14 eye-shadows and highlighters, all extremely pigmented. There are 5 matte eye-shadows and 5 shimmer eye-shadows. I was drawn to this palette not just because it was a collaboration with Carli Bybel but because of the shades they shadows come in. I am not a very adventurous when it comes to eye make up, I like everyday colours that can be changed to night time with a touch of shimmer and that is exactly what this palette offers. The highlighters are truly beautiful, my favourite highlighter and the one that compliments my skin tone is the very first lightest pink shade (I have nearly hit pan at this stage).
I find this palette so easy to work with as I am the worst at eye makeup, I am able to create very easy simple eye looks for everyday wear. The only downside is that there is quite a lot of fall out when using these shadows, I would recommend applying these shadows before your face makeup and to tap the brush before application to get an excess powder off. The shadows are very smooth and very easy to blend. The pigmentation did not come to play, it is amazing, a small amount of product goes a long way especially when it comes to the shimmers ( can be chalky at times).
The price point for this palette is at the cheaper end of the spectrum, I think I paid €21.50 which for the amount of product you get and the pigmentation it’s a very reasonable price. Overall I love this palette, it is a big part of my makeup routine, I use the first shade to set my Mac Soft Ochre paint pot, the third shade the deepen the crease and I use the last shadow to fill in my eyebrows. It is a very very well loved palette. You can make simple day time looks with the brighter shades and a more smokey eye with the plum/brown shades.
Its a big 4.5/5 from me 😀 x
