For months I’ve been wanting to get my hands on the Carli Bybel Palette, not just because I’m a mega fan, but that the shades are really something I would be comfortable wearing as I’m still pretty new to the world of eyeshadow. When it comes to makeup I’m not too into bright in your face colours, although I’m always trying to widen my horizon.
The palette is made up of four highlighters and ten eyeshadows in mauve, golden and brown shades, with matte and metallic finishes. I only have Makeup Revolution palettes to compare it to, of which it is by far superior. The shadows and highlighters are beautifully pigmented and buttery, making blending easy.
Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about the packaging, the white and the pearls aren’t really doing it for me. One thing I really like is that there is a large mirror as I currently don’t have a free standing mirror for my vanity table, so I’ve been using this a lot. At the moment I am big into inspirational quotes so the “Aspire to Inspire” under the mirror is a nice touch.
After playing around with the palette a lot, I’ve concluded that the pressed powders are really lovely to use, I have only found that the dark burgundy shade is a bit more crumbly causing slight fall off. I also find that I can only use the two lightest highlighter shades, but that’s my fault for being pale not the palettes!
I think this was a perfect starter palette and it has really opened my eyes to the world of eyeshadow!
