Eye Shadow & Highlighter in One: Carli Bybel Palette
This palette was a product of collaboration between BH Cosmetics and Carli Bybel who is a YouTube sensation and a makeup artist.
I purchased this palette right after she came out with it and I still use it. I actually “save” this palette or should I say “treasure it” so to speak; as in ” leave the best for last”. I am so in love with it that I only use it for special occasions; those that require I look stellar!
Carli Bybel Palette-a Delicate Collection of Shadows & Highlights:
I can’t believe it was only $14!
The reason why I love her shadows is because they are delicate. Gentle and girly. They have a very light formula that feels very gently on my eye lids. If you knew me in person, you’d know that I like my make up to look bright, fresh and delicate. I like to look “awake” and that is what this palette helps me do. I am not really into vibrant colors or extreme makeup. So this has quickly become my favorite eyeshadow and highlight palette.
This is definitely a palette I would use for a soft makeup look. I had actually used the Carli Bybel palette on one of my friends on her wedding day. The bride looked vibrant and glowy as well as bright and awake. She loved the makeup as well and had actually bought the same palette after I tried it on her.
I have been using the light shadows the most. They are very pigmented and can be used for highlighting the brow areas or inner corners of the eyes, or as a cheekbone highlighter.
Carli Bybel Palette colors breakdown:
The first row contains a matte cream or beige shadow, a shimmery beige-pink, a nude matte, light matte maroon, and a darker, shimmery maroon. I use the first row most frequently. The colors all compliment each other. This top row of colors would look particularly gorgeous with blue eyes! Although I do not have blue eyes, I love how the mattes and the shimmers play together to create a canvas look.
Second row is full of shimmery shades of rose gold, light gold, brown, bronze and a dark brown. My two favorites from this row are the rose gold and the bronze. They are so beautiful!
The last row has two beautiful highlighters-pink and rose gold. I use them as shadows as well. And the rest are a beautiful light brown and dark bronze. All colors are extremely gorgeous and create extreme glow from just a couple swipes.
Although I love the shadows, I wish that the packaging was better, sturdier. It is a beautifully displayed palette that looks like a cushion from a wedding ring pillow. It’s got pearls on it and silver lettering. I just wish that they would at least make it plastic instead of cardboard. It would be awful if something accidentally spilled on it and the shadows get ruined. I am not saying it’s flimsy, not at all. But for such beautiful shadows and highlights, the packaging should of been more secure.
Where can you buy the Carli Bybel Palette?
I think that this is the most affordable palette that I’ve purchased, that has been really working out for me for this long. You can buy it here for about $14.
Why you should buy this eye shadow and highlighter palette?
I would recommend this palette for Spring and summer time makeup, wedding makeup and everyday neutral-soft-look makeup. If you are a beginner and are looking for a soft makeup palette to help you learn blending shadows, this is also a great choice for that. The application and blending of these shadows is very easy. The shadows’ creamy texture glides on lids easily creating a luminescent look, thus, not requiring continuous application.
I really hope you guys enjoyed this review and hope that you will certainly get yourself this amazing palette!
