Given the number of YouTube/beauty blogger collaborations, I’m choosy about which ones I buy. I knew that the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette was one I needed to have. The reviews for the first palette were great, and based on the sneak peek that Carli released on her Snapchat, this one had the potential to be even better. I put my order in on the first day of the pre-sale.
The new BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette builds on first palette by adding an additional seven new eyeshadow shades for a total of 15, plus six highlighter/illuminators (three new shades). The presentation is quite pretty, done in a marble pattern. On the inside, there is a generous-sized mirror.
At first glance, you can’t help but notice how gorgeous and seamlessly the colors, which are neutrals, all work together. If you de-potted the eyeshadows and put them in another palette, you could easily think they were MAC (or another high-end line).
The shadows are creamy and buttery; the shimmers almost glow. What really impressed me was the pigmentation. The first row of the eyeshadow colors are completely new; in the second row, the #4 shade (a taupe shimmer) and the matte brown in the third row are new. The remaining eyeshadows are carryovers from the first palette. They blend out easily, there’s no fallout and the wear time is excellent. The overall quality is excellent.
The highlighters have a bit more glitter to them than I normally wear, but they’re beautiful, too. Application is flawless. I especially like the large rose gold shade; the champagne gold shade in that row is new. In the bottom row, the first two highlighter shades, frosty white and pale pink/lilac, are new. The last two shades, a copper and deeper bronze, are from the first palette.
The limited-edition BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette will be available for $19.50 for a limited time; after 30 days the price will be $22.50. Start looking for it in ULTA Beauty this month, too. No matter when you get it, pick.it.up. As someone who is a genuine prestige beauty lover, I can’t find a single flaw with this palette.
