If you’re a lover of warm golden tones and mauves then you’re going to love this palette. The YouTube sensation Carli Bybel created a palette with BH Cosmetics, and yes, I had to have it! The colours and pigmentation of each eye shadow and highlighter are in a league of their own.
What amazed me the most about this palette is that it is super affordable (only £10) and each shade performs as well as any high end shadow I’ve ever used. With there being 10 shadows, 4 mattes and 6 shimmers, it was pleasing to try them all to see they all performed equally. I find them all to be really creamy and easy to blend. I find the mattes to be perfect transition shades, especially the two mauve shades, as they are all highly pigmented and easy to blend into all the lid colours.
As there is a range of champagne, gold and bronze shimmers – both shadows and highlighters, I find that this palette would be perfect for everyone. The lightest highlighter is perfect for pale skin, and the darkest bronze would be perfect on medium to dark skin tones.
Both the shadows and highlights are very long lasting; the shadows last a little longer as long as you use a base, which is a must for me regardless! I’ve noticed I get about 8-10 hours from the highlights, a few more hours out of the shadows. For only £10, they are a complete steal!
I find you can create so many different looks with this palette. My favourite being using both mauve mattes in the crease with the light champagne colour (second shades in the first row), with a mix of the middle two highlighters on my cheekbones.
If you’re in the UK and are wondering about pricing and shipping from the BH Cosmetics website – I paid $14.50 for the palette and $5.50 shipping fees (can I add, I didn’t get any import charges, hallelujah!), which totalled to £13.90 all together. Check it out here
It’s an easy, effortless but glam palette!
