BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette Review and Swatches

One of the most beautiful palettes that I have ever seen has to be the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette.

If you have seen it, I am sure you would agree.



The kicker too is that besides being beyond gorgeous is it insanely affordable at $12.50.

The only problem is that it is always sold out.



Only by pure luck was I able to get mine when it was first released.

I actually went on BH's website 15 minutes before it was released (actually I had logged into my account prior to that so I would be prepared. Once I was able to add it to my cart, I could just check out).

When I looked the palette up I was able to add it to my cart, this is what I did without hesitation (so fast in fact that I didn't even go through Ebates).



After I placed my order, I thought I might as well order another one to give as a gift.

Yeah, that was wishful thinking.

I spent hours trying to purchase another which even lasted until the next evening when it was finally listed as out of stock. 

The palette has restocked only once since then and the ability to be able to order it is based on the order you submitted your email address to be notified of the restock.

It is once again sold out so I can imagine that not everyone on the waitlist has been able to order.

I know because I am one of those.

Hopefully it will restock again soon so that everyone who wants this beauty is able to get their hands on it.


The Carli Bybel Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette contains 14 shades.

10 are eyeshadows and the other 4 are highlighters (which could also be used as eyeshadows).

Below are the swatches of the eyeshadows from left to right and from the 1st to 2nd row.

Review:

The Carli Bybel Palette is gorgeous palette without a doubt!

The shadows and highlighters have good pigmentation and blend easily.

I have noticed that the mattes can disappear with too much blending and that by the end of the day they have faded slightly.

The shimmers are more pigmented than the mattes, which is usually always the case.

The palette is very affordable at $12.50.

The problem with this palette is that it is always sold out, so it is hard to get your hands on it.

Overall, I think it is a good palette for the price that you pay. 

The eyeshadows in my opinion are not the best out there.

The highlighters alone are reason enough to pick up the palette.

What do you think of the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette?

Have you gotten yours or are you anxiously awaiting a restock?
