Carli Bybel palette with B H Cosmetics
Today I wanted to review the Carli Bybel deluxe edition palette but I wanted to wait until the issues with shipping etc were sorted out. I got this palette a while ago and I have to say the colours are beautiful ! but what happened on BH Cosmetics end was very unfortunate. The Deluxe Edition is a re launch of a palette she did with them previously. They have kept 10 shades from the original and added 11 all new shades.
Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition:
This palette was $19.50 at pre launch but now retails for $22.50 USD
You get 15 shadows and 6 highlight shades.
Great range of colours and a good level of pigmentation.
Highlighters are for the most part blinding
Something to suit the vast majority of skintones
If you are in Canada shipping was around $10 USD
The Good :
The Deluxe Edition palette has a great amount of different shades that is very easy to make a complete look. Great for traveling or on the go because there are so many looks you can make with easy from day to night .
This really cute packaging is very nice to look at and easy to travel with. The shadows have great pigmentation and in my opinion blend very nicely. The highlight shades are great and very buildable so there really is a little something for everyone. The cost is great as well considering where a lot of other collabs fall on the price scale with most being $35usd plus. The mauves are my favourites and I find myself reaching for this palette a lot. This palette is also Cruelty – Free and Vegan
The Bad :
When the prelaunch happened it was a NIGHTMARE ! First the BH Cosmetics site crashed so Carli had to do orders on her own website. Then people were getting double and triple changed which to be fair BH Cosmetics refunded by the next day. Then to make matters worse a lot of people had some broken palettes which probably isn’t the fault of the company more an issue on the shipping side. Once I finally was able to place my order it took almost 3 weeks to arrive and I order a lot of makeup from the states it has never taken me that long unless a palette got lost.
Sometimes companies get overwhelmed I understand but I think they (BH ) should have communicated better instead of having to hear everything from Carli.
Over All :
I really do like this palette I reach for it a lot and i have created some very pretty looks with it . I do think the price point is great for the amount you get and the are really good quality shadows and highlights. If you still haven’t got your hands on this I would definitely say buy it because all the issues have now been worked out and if you live in the states you can also buy it at Ulta I believe.
This is a great palette at a great price I just wish I had a better experience so I didn’t have a sour taste in my mouth. Well done to Carli for making a great colour range to suit pretty much everyone and for keeping it vegan!
I hope you guys enjoyed this review and have a great weekend!!!
