BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette Swatches & Review
As a huge fan of Carli Bybel and eyeshadow palettes, this palette was a must buy for me. BH COSMETICS recently launched Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition with 21 brand new shades, and I just want to show you guys how beautiful the original palette is before I get my hands on the new one.
- Paraben free
- Allergy tested
- Clinically tested
- Cruelty free
47.6g / 1.68 Oz. x 20 for $14.50
Carli Bybel palette comes in a thin cardboard case with a mirror included. The packaging is lightweight and travel-friendly with elegant white and silver design. The floral embossments on the highlighter shades are gorgeous.
Application and Pigmentation
The shimmery shades are soft and pigmented with the shimmers/sparkles well distributed. Unlike the chalky but pigmented matte shades that are commonly found in most of the eyeshadow formulas, the matte shades from this palette are velvety and buttery with buildable pigmentation. All the shades apply like a dream and they are easy to blend.
I used Eyeshadow Primer Potion from Urban Decay as the base for the swatches and eye makeup. The swatches are shown in both natural indoor lighting and flashlight.
Top row (from left to right)
1. Matte cream
2. Shimmery light pink
3. Matte mauvish taupe
4. Matte deep mauve
5. Matte plum
The top row of the palette consists a combination of cool-toned mauves and plum shades. It is a nice twist in for neutral color ranges.
Middle row (from left to right)
6. Shimmery rose gold (a little bit holographic)
7. Shimmery champagne
8. Shimmery bronze with a copper undertone
9. Shimmery bronze with an orange undertone
10. Matte muted dark brown
The middle row consists a combination of warm bronzes and chocolate shades. It is a stunning metallic neutral color scheme. However, the shade 9 and 10 are really similar to the two bronze-toned highlighters; this seemed a bit repetitive to me. It could be much better if the 2 eyeshadows shades were the same color but in matte finishes.
Bottom row (from left to right)
11. Shimmery pale pink with subtle multi-colored sparkles
12. Shimmery soft champagne pink
13. Shimmery copper
14. Metallic bronze
The bottom row is also known as the highlighter shades, but you can also use them as eyeshadows. The pigmentation is more subtle compared to the eyeshadow shades since they were designed to function as highlighters, but they can still create the blinding/high key type of glowing effect.

Overall, the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel palette is a versatile palette featuring neutral-toned eyeshadows and luminous highlighters. I love the functionality of this palette since you can also use the highlighter shades for your eyes. The color scheme is gorgeous for creating the day to night glam. I highly recommend this palette because I really think it is such a high-quality product at a bargain price!
