Review + Swatches | BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette + MY FIRST GIVEAWAY *CLOSED*

Review + Swatches | BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette + MY FIRST GIVEAWAY

I am not exaggerating when I say that I have been wanting to order from BH Cosmetics for the past four years. When I first started getting into makeup everyone was obsessed with their 88 color eyeshadow palettes. I never actually went through with an order until I saw that Carli Bybel (YouTuber and Blogger!) created a palette with BH. The range looks perfect for a neutral-fanatic like me, and the reviews I heard were amazing. So I decided to finally make an order, and I wanted to share my thoughts on the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlight Palette.

Packaging
The front of this palette is so stinkin cute! It looks like a white quilted pattern, but in reality it is a cardboard palette. Although it's cardboard, it still feels very sturdy and not bulky. A plus is that it has a mirror on the inside.

Shadows + Texture
First row: matte vanilla, shimmer champagne, matte cool light brown, matte light mauve, matte dark mauve/cranberry
Second row: Shimmer light pink/gold, shimmer gold, shimmer dark bronze, shimmer copper, matte cool dark brown
Highlighters (all shimmer): Light pink, light champagne, gold, bronze

The texture of all of these shadows are really soft, and I have no issue with the pigmentation. I have to say though, the matte shades in here a little more dry than the shimmer shades. They are still easy to blend, but the pigmentation is not as intense as the shimmer shades.

The shimmer shades in this are absolutely stunning. I would buy this palette again just for those shades. They are so soft, and pigmented, they feel almost like my Lorac Pro eyeshadows. The highlighters are no different! Besides for the 10 shadows, you also get four huge highlighters. What's amazing about the highlighters is that every skin tone can find a shade that works for them. The darker bronze highlights I would never use as a highlight, but it's stunning as an eyeshadow.

What I also love about this palette is besides for the typical neutrals (browns and pinks), they have three mauve/cranberry toned shadows on the top rows. I mainly use browns and taupes in my eyeshadow looks, but I have been loving using these in some of my eye looks recently.

Overall Thoughts
The best part about this palette? It's only $12.50, it's super affordable! For 10 eyeshadows, plus 4 big highlights/shadows, the price is unbeatable. I absolutely love this palette! The shimmers in it are beautiful, and I love the range of looks I can create.

  8. The shimmer shades in this palette really stand out to me. Currently I own several of the BH Cosmetics Palettes and I use them in my personal makeup and also in my Makeup Artistry Kit :) I think this is a great bang for you buck and I'd love to pick this up after hearing such a positive review.
