Beauty Bybel

Carli Bybel is a well known name in the YouTube beauty and fashion blogger community. She’s been a beauty YouTuber since the early days, in fact the first video I watched of hers was a Tinkerbell tutorial 4 years ago?!

She collaborated with Bh Cosmetics and created an eye shadow and highlighter palette almost a year ago, then because it was such a success they came out with a ‘deluxe’ version just a few months ago.

Now initially I didn’t really have any interest in the Carli Bybel Deluxe palette. The eye shadows looked great, but I felt that I had other shadows in my collection that could be dupes. What really convinced me to purchase this palette were the highlighters. Believe it or not, I don’t own a lot of highlighters, I only own two. Both of them are more on the subtle side and I was wanting to find a highlighter that had more of an impact. The highlighters in this palette sure do pack a punch!

This palette is incredibly affordable, just $22! Even less if you use a coupon or redeem Ulta reward points. The packaging is nice, its that sturdy cardboard packaging but it includes a large mirror!

The palette comes with 15 eyeshadows and 6 highlighters. The two darkest highlighters are too dark for me (great to use as eyeshadows) but would be beautiful on darker complexions.

The eyeshadows are lovely. They may not be as buttery as Lorac shadows but they’re not dry either. They do have a little bit of kickup but nothing unusual. The mattes are so easy to blend and are very pigmented. The shimmers are nice and apply well, I wish they were a bit more shimmery when applied. Although when applied wet, that will help intensify the shimmer finish.

Overall I think this is a nice palette. This would be especially perfect for someone who is just getting started in makeup, a teenager, someone who likes a good value, or if you are looking for a palette that has a little bit of everything. It’s got a great array of highlighters as well as eyeshadows that hit major color ranges (with transition shades!)

This palette would be perfect to travel with. You can create an entire eye look with just the shadows in the palette and you have your highlighters all in one easy to pack palette.

I am glad I picked this up, and it’s nice to support one of the first beauty YouTuber’s I ever subscribed too.
