Hi girls! A couple of days ago I got a dreamy delivery from BH Cosmetics! The Carli Bybel eyeshadow-highlighter palette! SO LOVELY
I´ve been waiting a long time to purchase this one cause everytime I wanted to order it , it was sold out :( ...But I finally got my hands on one of them!
As you may have already noticed I don't have a lot of palettes: only one Maybelline and one Kiko eyeshadow palette. Which is fine because I mostly wear black/brown/nude toned eyeshadow. And I'm very picky with blush and lip colors because of my fair skintone. I usually buy one piece of one color. And I really like the high end products but they are usually a little too expensive for me and I start getting doubts and end up not buying it :(
When I saw the price of this palette I had to get my hands on one of them! So affordable! (15 euro!!!!). And the colors are so pretty! You can use them for an everyday look or an evening nude look: perfect colors for me!
There are 10 different shades of eyeshadows. 5 matte and 5 shimmery colors. And 4 highlighters (dark colors are bronzers). They all look very pretty, also the swatches! Unfortunatly I was unable to make the lightest swatches visible!
It also looks good on the skin and the eyeshadows look very pretty on the eyelids. They also match the color what they look like. Sorry if the colors and highlighter are not good visible.. I just couldn´t get a good picture with good light..
WHAT I DON´T LIKE
What I don't like is the cheap looking packaging, I think this could be prettier and more luxurious. I say this because I know a lot of affordable makeup palettes that have better packaging than this one for exampje Maybelline or L'oreal eyeshadow palette (10 euro) and the Essence and P2 palettes. So it's a pity that it's made out of cardboard instead of plastic. Typography also sucks and looks cheap. When you open it, it does look a lot better with all the round neutral shades and the mirror does look very pretty. I like that BH Cosmetics uses a combination of smal and big shapes.
But my conclusion is: If you want good quality for an affordable price, you should buy this!
I personally love this palette and all the neutrals!
