Carli Bybel is a very popular YouTube “beauty guru” who has recently collaborated with BH Cosmetics to bring us this 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette ($14.50). The palette includes 4 shimmery highlighters and 10 matte and shimmer eyeshadows.
First let’s look at the packaging. The palette is basically made entirely of cardboard, which doesn’t bother me at all for the price. I love that it has a magnetic closure and also includes a generous sized mirror.
Both the highlighters and eyeshadows are buttery smooth. They do kick up a good bit of excess powder so tap off your brush before you apply it to your face or eyes.
I find all of the colors to be nicely pigmented and easy to blend. Some of my swatches may look light on my skin but that’s mostly because they are pretty close to my skin tone.
As you can see, the Carli Bybel palette is a neutral girl’s dream. I have been using this palette non-stop since getting it. It’s great for everyday summer looks since it includes beautiful gold and bronze colors.
The two darkest highlighter shades are really intense. They won’t work well on anyone with fair or light skin tones like myself, but I’ll use mine as eyeshadow colors instead.
I’m giving this palette two big thumbs up. I think it’s a great buy for anyone who loves neutrals or anyone wanting to try their hand at highlighting but doesn’t want to spend and arm and a leg for a good quality face highlighter.
