Here we are in the month of June...where has the time gone??? I spent all of last week transitioning my makeup and clothes to all summer gear. This also means I have a different makeup look in the summer months. Lucky for me....my totally adorbs cousin Krishna bought me the Carli Bybel – 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette in collaboration with BH Cosmetics, and I haven't been able to put it down!!!
I feel like BH Cosmetics doesn't get the hype it deserves. They have great quality makeup, especially their pressed eyeshadows and are super affordable. The prices of their products are comparable to drugstore prices but the quality is much better. You can always purchase their products online and they're super quick at restocking sold out items.
That all being said, I received this beautiful palette that spoke to me on my neutral level. This palette comes in a travel friendly cardboard packaging which makes it light and sturdy. The palette has a good sized mirror which I have used to apply my eye makeup and my face makeup. This palette contains ten eyeshadows and four highlighters, which can also be doubled up as eyeshadows. The ten eyeshadows break down as five mattes and five shimmers. You can also break it down in five mauves/purples and five gold/bronze shades. The diversity and choice of colours allows you to mix cool tones with warm tones for a unique harmony look. Which is what I have done in the video below.
The highlighters in this palette are my FAVOURITE part!! They are so pigmented, super butter, they glide on the skin for the nicest, BAM-IN-YOUR-FACE-CAN-YOU-SEE-MY-SHINE look. There is a highlight for every skin tone and also an endless amount of combinations to create when they all work so nicely together. The breakdown for the highlighters is a pale blue-pink, a warm vanilla gold, a true gold, and a deep bronze gold. The lighter your skin tone, you may gravitate to the the pink highlight and I would suggest using a light hand. That doesn't mean the rest go to waste, you can always use the other colours to bronze your skin or even as eyeshadows.
Anyone with a light-medium complexion to deep complexions will get a great use out of this palette. It takes some building up with the eyeshadow pigments but it's a great everyday palette that can also transition to a dramatic night look.
