I was so excited to finally get my hands on this palette! As a longtime fan of Carli Bybel, I purchased the original version of this palette with BH Cosmetics when it was first released and used it religiously. I used it to the point I hit pan on almost every single shadow, it was the perfect every day palette. So, when this deluxe version was released shortly after, I knew I would need it next.
Fast forward to about a month ago, this palette was on sale on the BH Cosmetics website for $10. Dollars. I obviously couldn’t pass that up, so I snagged it before they were completely out. I am obsessed with this palette and use it nearly every day. It has every shade you need for a bright daytime look, as well as a smoky nighttime look. Not to mention there are six highlighter shades to complement various skin tones. My personal favorite being the rose gold highlighter, no shocker there. You can tell just how pigmented the colors are by the finger swatches above!
You can tell by the swatches how wearable this palette is. The shimmers in this palette are so gorgeous, and I have received so many compliments on my eye makeup when I wear them. The mattes on the other hand were a little bit underwhelming when I initially swatched them, and I had to build them up to get the color payoff. However, I haven’t had any issues with blending them on the eyes! You can see the photo below where I used a couple shades from the palette to create a pink, cranberry eye makeup look.
This palette retails for $22.50, which is such a steal in my opinion. With 21 eyeshadow and highlighter shades, the quality and the color selection of this palette is perfect for everyone. You can purchase this palette on the Ulta website, as it is no longer available on the BH Cosmetics website. I highly recommend this palette to everyone, you just can’t beat the price!
