Carli Bybel Deluxe Palette from BH Cosmetics
It’s been a while since I’ve used anything from BH Cosmetics, and quite honestly, I wasn’t expected much based on eyeshadows I had purchased years ago. However, I am SO happy to tell you the quality of this palette is a LOT better than what I remember using previously. What did surprise me about this palette was the price jump that happened recently. I remember purchasing it for $19 (and don’t recall it being on sale), but now it’s on the BH Cosmetics website for $22.50 …? Maybe it was an introductory price? Either way, it’s a worthwhile palette, even if it is $3 more. This palette is much bigger than her 2016 version; it contains 15 eyeshadows and 6 highlighters for the face, although the highlighters could easily be used as eyeshadow, too. I have used them like that and rather like the results! I’ve also been applying them on the center of my lips (as you can see in one of the video tutorials below) for a warm summer glow.
The color range is very warm within this palette and the colors were expertly coordinated by Carli, 2 thumbs up for her selection. Sometimes you can run into a palette where the colors clash and it’s hard to create looks using just the palette alone; I didn’t struggle at all with this palette and never washed a look off. (And that’s rare when I’m creating looks with one palette!) The eyeshadows can be a bit chunky and you have to be careful when picking them up with a brush. If you apply too much pressure, you’ll see them crumble, so a light hand is the key. The pigmentation is insane, so you won’t need to dig into the eyeshadows anyway.
Overall, thoroughly impressed with this one and it’s made me rethink BH Cosmetics as in wanting to explore more of their palettes.
What do you think? Have you tried any other palettes from BH Cosmetics?
