Finally! After what…5 months I think I am blogging. I have been having major writer’s block due to work and personal stress. Phew! Never knew blogging would actually de-stress me.
Coming back to today’s post, I am finally reviewing my all time (at the moment!) go-to palette from BH Cosmetics – Carli Bybel – 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette. BH Cosmetics is known for collaborating with famous beauty/makeup expert YouTube sensation (such as the Jaclyn Hill palette); and hence we got Carli Bybel collaborating with BH Cosmetics to create this lovely palette. I got this for AED 95/- from Girlie Stuffs (my oldest and trusted online dealer).
About the product:
Beauty expert and YouTube sensation Carli Bybel designed this versatile 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette to dial up the drama and add excitement to your look. Carli’s taste for chic refinement and modern elegance inspired her to select a collection of earthy neutrals and plummy brown shadows with four face highlighters that complement every skin tone. The mix of mattes and shimmers makes it easy to go from amped-up evening intensity to toned-down daytime options.

My Review on BH Cosmetics – Carli Bybel – 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette:
The palette is travel friendly due to it’s lightweight, sleek and compactness. It has beautiful white and silver packaging. The palette itself is cardboard with cute detailing on the packaging. The packaging is very elegant and very sophisticated with a touch of cuteness added to it. The best thing about the palette is that it comes with good sized mirror, however no brushes. Below the mirror, Carli Bybel has inserted an inspiration quote that says “Aspire to Inspire”.
The palette contains 5 matte, 5 shimmer eyeshadows and 4 very luminous highlighters. The minute I swatched the product, I knew this palette is LOVE. For the price, this palette is amazing. All the eyeshadows are velvety, smooth and blendable. However, few of the matte shades are chalky and have fall outs; but the shimmer and highlighters is to die for.
The color scheme is very universal, and will suit all kind of skin tones. Carli made sure that her palette is used by all kind of skini tone beauties. And the best part, this palette is cruelty free, paraben free and non-irritating.
The colors in the palette range from mauves to plums to champagnes, and is perfect for everyday and party look.
Like I mentioned, the shimmers and highlightes are to die for. They are super pigmented and smooth on application. I just love the shimmers in this palette.
The eyeshadow has decent amount of staying power, if the eyes are prepped and primed before application.
Top Row: This line of shades comprises of mostly cool tone colors of mauves and purple colors. It consists of 4 matte and 1 shimmer shade.
Middle Row: This row is mix of all golds, champagnes, browns and bronze color. It has 4 shimmers and 1 matte eyeshadow. This is my most favorite row of color. The shimmers are velvety, and super smooth when applied. It blends so beautifully. These shades are perfect to create day and glam look.
Last and Final Row of Highlighters: These are the best ever highlighters I have ever come across. They shades are so magnificent, that you have use this palette to know what I mean. The first two are beautiful light shade highlighters, that can be used for every day look, since the last two are too dark to be used as highlighter. But they are great to get that bronzing glow during summers. Plus, the last two shades will look super gorgeous on dark skintones. The first highlighter has got me head over heels in love with it.
The pigment is awesome, so smooth and velvety. I am head over heels in love with these highlighters <3.
