I don’t think anyone has missed the BH Cosmetics x Carli Bybel collaboration that came out a few months ago. It sold out in a hot minute and at the beginning I wasn’t even interested or in on the hype. I thought that because it was so cheap, the quality wasn’t going to be all that. But then I saw Amy Macedo’s video on Youtube where she did som first impressions and let me tell you something. When she applied that highlight I was like “I need that palette in my life”. I could hardly believe my eyes as to how damn pigmented it was, I ordered mine right then and there. You cant watch Amy’s first impressions video right here.
Price/shipping: I bought the palette online from bhcosmetics.com and it was on promotion. It cost me 12.50 $ and the shipping to Sweden cost 5.50 $ so in total this palette cost me 18 $ which I think is a pretty cheap and amazing price for amount and quality of these shadows. For my swedish readers 18 $ is about 153 SEK, which is very cheap.
Packaging: I’m not the biggest fan of the color of the palette or the pattern on it, but this packaging beats the Morphe packaging. It’s not big and bulky so this is a great palette to bring with you when you travel. And it wont break as easily as the Morphe one because this isn’t in plastic, it’s made of cardboard like the Lorac palettes and the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes. So except for the color and pattern, the packaging is great and has a mirror which is always great, especially if you travel a lot.
Colors/pigmentation/color pay off: For the price of this palette I was actually pretty surpised as to how pigmented these shadows are. The matte shadows aren’t as pigmented as the shimmery ones, so in that sense the Morphe shadows are better and more pigmented. But these don’t smell anything so they actually don’t feel as cheap as the Morphe shadows. The only thing I can complain about is that there seems to be a bit of fallout when you dip your brush in the shadows as well some on your face. But it’s not much. Plus some of the highlighters are actually quite dark. So it’s a diverse palette thats not just for pale or tan skintones, but I gotta say the last highlighter is pretty dark even for darker skintones, it looks more like a bronzer but it so glittery I would probably just use it as an eyeshadow.
The first two rows are eyeshadows, and the last row with the bigger shades are the highlighters:
All in all: This is a great everyday palette. I love neutrals and mauve colors for my everyday eye makeup so this palette will be used a lot. It’s great for travelling as you get shadows and highlighters in one palette. And you can’t really beat the price. These shadows are really quite pigmented and I feel like it would look great on almost anyone. Carli Bybel and BH Cosmetics have done a great job on this palette. Because it’s so cheap it’s almost lke you’ll be losing out if you don’t buy it because it’s so versatile. I love this palette and I just know I’m gonna be using it so, so much!
