I guess by now you all know about this palette but I just got recently and thought I would share my views you all. BH cosmetics collaborated with carli Bybel and introduced this palette and needless to say this palette was out of stock within few hours of its release. Carli Bybel is a famous you tuber with more than 3 million viewers. I have watched some of her videos. When people started raving about this palette I decided to get my hands on them.
Keep reading for detailed review,
Beauty expert and YouTube sensation Carli Bybel designed this versatile 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette to dial up the drama and add excitement to your look. Carli’s taste for chic refinement and modern elegance inspired her to select a collection of earthy neutrals and plummy brown shadows with four face highlighters that complement every skin tone. The mix of mattes and shimmers makes it easy to go from amped-up evening intensity to toned-down daytime options.
This palette includes 14 pans, with 10 eyeshadow pans (4 matte+ 6 metallic shimmer) and 4 highlighter pans. The shade selection is quite warm and gold bronzey shades, with a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. The packaging looks so sleek and beautiful with all white, grey and silver. You do get a mirror in the packaging. The palette feels slim, compact and sturdy for cardboard. The formula of these shadows is quite silky to the touch and blendable. I paid $12.5 for this palette and was fairly impressed with the quality in general.

All the swatches are without primer.Personally for me, the winner in this palette are the shimmer shades because I think they’re more rich and pigmented and also tend to be the shades that wear the best. The mattes are also quite nice and pigmented but you need to build the look to get more intensified look. I do find that these perform best with primer. Without primer, these applied nicely but did get a little chalky by the end of the day with some creasing. With primer, I got a vibrant look that really lasted throughout the day. The highlighter in this palette are super pigmented that little goes a long way.
I do have one problem with this palette though. While I like the shades that are included in this palette, I don’t like that three of the shades in the larger highlighter pans are incredibly similar to shades in the smaller eye shadow pans. I wish they could have curated with some rosy shimmer-matte shades and champagne shade but none the less this palette is gorgeous and you can create so many looks with it. You can’t go wrong with a neutral palette as it’s so versatile and will suit pretty much every single skin tone
