When the Carli Bybel Deluxe version was released containing 15 shadows and 6 highlighters as opposed to the original which had 10 eye shadows and 3 highlighters, I had to have it. I went as far as pre-ordering the palette before it was even released. The sneak peek swatches had won me over!
Taken from BH Cosmetics- "This palette features 11 original shades plus 10 chic new shadows and highlighters in buttery blendable formulas with staying power."
The palette is a large square with magnet closure and complete with a cardboard sleeve. The palette is so pretty, I love the rose gold writing on the quilted pintuck background design.
Opening the palette reveals not only the eye shadows, but a rather large mirror and the gorgeous marble look packaging with the words Aspire to Inspire under the mirror.
The mattes are lovely and buttery, making them easy to blend. The shimmers are smooth and are nicely pigmented.
The highlighters are beautiful, versatile enough to be a strong highlight or give a soft glow. There are 2 shades that are too dark for my skintone, but they're great as eye shadows won't go to waste.
Enough of that, lets get to the swatches. I'll begin with the eye shadows
Here's swatches of the highlighters
Of course I've got some eye looks to show you
My favourite eye shadow shade is definitely the golden pink shade, I used it in look 4. It is so vibrant and gorgeous, my photos do not do the eye shadow justice, not even in the swatch.
Oh yes! I happened to buy not 1, but 2 of these palettes so I could host a giveaway and share my excitement of the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette with one of my readers.
