Carli Bybel Palette Review, Swatches and Giveaway

    October 18, 2016

    So I’ve decided to post a Carli Bybel Palette Review and Giveaway. If you haven’t heard of Carli Bybel, she is a Youtube Guru, whose account primarily focuses on beauty. She teamed up with the team at BH Cosmetics to create her own palette. Although I do not follow Carli’s Youtube channel, I love her palette. It is affordable, versatile and the shades suit most skin tones.

    Carli Bybel Palette Review and Swatches

    The palette consists of 10 eyeshadows and 4 highlighters. The eyeshadows are a mix of shimmer and mattes shades that are earthy and warm toned. It has predominantly bronze-hued and champagne-hued neutrals, but it does contain 3 rose-hued neutrals and one taupe-hued neutral. The highlighter pans are much larger and these shades are all shimmery. There is a rose-hued neutral, a champagne-hued neutral and two bronze-hued neutrals. The palette is so versatile, it can be used all year round. The images below show the eyeshadows and highlighters, row by row.

    For the most part, the pigmentation is amazing. Only the lightest matte shade doesn’t have great pigmentation. The shimmery shades are the most pigmented. The shades are soft and easy to blend and they’re buttery. The only shade that seems powdery to me is the matte burgundy eyeshade in the top row. The shadows last on my eyes until the end of the day. If you have oily eyelids like myself, you’ll know how amazing this is. The only shade I do not like is the taupe at the end of the second row.

    Unfortunately BH Cosmetics products is only sold online. They do ship to South Africa, but unfortunately it comes through the SAPO and takes about a month. So you could buy one and wait, or try your luck and enter this giveaway.
