Hola 🙂 ! Here i’am with my best-loved palette review.
My favorite youtube girl has done it again. Carli bybel along with BH cosmetics, released a new and upgraded eyeshadow and highlighter palette. This is an updated version of her previous palette. Which i had reviewed already. Check it out here. The older palette’s have been stopped from sales and currently deluxe palettes are sold at the stores.
Where to get:
Let’s talk buisness 🙂 . The older palatte had 10 eyeshadows and 4 highlighters. The deluxe edition has a total of 15 eyeshadows and 6 highlighters! Totally amounts to 21 shades. Of which, 11 shades are from the original palette and we have 10 new additions. The amount of product has been reduced but the variety has been increased.
The outer packaging design is the same as the previous one, but more studier and increased width/length. The letters are embossed in rose gold color. The palette is vegan, yay!! You can see the ingredients detail at the back. Also the cute little penguin guy is peeping at you from the side. And when you open the palette, you see “Aspire to Inspire” quote printed. A cool and beautiful marble pattern runs on the inside. You also get a good size mirror, really usable too.
On total you get 6 shimmer shades and 8 matte finishes. The product formula is buttery to creamy and well pigmented. The mattes in her pervious palette were mostly mauves and the neutrals were more on the shimmer side. But this one has the perfect balance. With increased highlighters, she has added in more mattes. Some of the new color additions includes coraly pink’s, burnt orange, gunmetal shimmer and a subtle pink and gold highlighters. It is crafted with neutrals, mauves, corals, pinks, browns. A really good mix of wide and versatile color ranges.
I have been using this for over 3-4 months now. I ordered it as soon as it was released 🙂 . My everyday work makeup is easy to pull through from this palette. My favorite has to be the new 3rd shade on top row. Burnt orange-brown color, it works as the best transition color for my crease. My next found favorite would be the 4th shade on row 2, a beautiful gunmetal shimmer shade. Something that i don’t see often in other palettes. Needless to say , shades 4 & 5 on top row are the show stoppers here. I believe they are Carli’s favorite too.
The two new highlighter additions (the first 2 swatches on the highlighter image below) are my most used ones. They both complement and melt to my skin tone, it comes out subtle and natural. Even with the pink! highlighter, since I’m more of yellower tone this was a surprise for me.
A lot of party, night, prom and special event looks can be created from this palette. Options are endless here. I did see a few tutorials in the youtube and was amazed with some of the creations.
The versatility of the palette, and the color ranges are definite pro’s. You get good quality product for your money. You can use the highlighters as eyeshadows or vice-versa and get a full use out of this. The best thing is that it is created cruelty-free and vegan. This is awesome, having more of vegan beauty options is always a plus for promoting and saving more of our furry friends.
Initially i had thought the deluxe is going to be an all-new color range. If you have the older palette as well, then there will be some repetions added to your makeup cupboard. But honestly this isn’t a bad thing. If you are running out of your favo shades from older palette, you might as well have it here.
Love, love and love 🙂 What more can i say? This is already a win among most women and girls out there. A must have for sure. Gift it to your friends and family, buy one for yourself. Give it a try and let me know how you liked it.
Already have one? Let me know what you think. I hope my review helped.
………………..Until next time 🙂 Vegandiarist <3
