Carli Bybel - BH Cosmetics - Eyeshadow and highlighter palette
Originally I wasn't going to purchase this due to shipping costs, but I saw it on sale and couldn't resist. It was only £13.40 for the palette and shipping from America which I thought was an absolute bargain ! If you don't know, this is a collaboration with youtube sensation Carli Bybel. A lot of people on Youtube have been doing amazing collabs but some of them are really expensive and out of a lot of people's price range. This is a great palette if you're starting out in makeup and don't have the biggest budget. The packaging is only cardboard but it is quite thick and sturdy, it's also nice and slim making it great to travel with. Carli said she wanted to create a classy looking palette, that didn't look like anything else in her collection. This lead to the white cushion effect with pearls, and the italic font.
As you can see the palette contains 10 eyeshadows and four highlighters. There is also a nice big mirror to use when on the go. So far i've really been enjoying the palette. The eyeshadows are great quality and very blendable for such a low price. I also love the fact that I can do a complete eye look with this palette. Lots of eyeshadow palettes don't have any shades dark enough to do a smokey eye, but this has the perfect balance of light and dark shades. The first highlight shade looks amazing on my cheekbones, but being as pale as I am I have been using the other three as eyeshadows.
I'm really happy I purchased this palette. The 4th shade along on the top row reminds me of my favourite mauve colour from the Lorac pro palette. Every time I use this on my eyes I get complimented on my eyeshadow too :) I definitely recommend this palette to anyone who collects makeup, and anyone young who's starting up !
I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this palette
