Product Review - BH Cosmetics: Carli Bybel - 10 color Eyeshadow & 4 Color Highlighter Palette

I initially purchased this palette through Ulta, but it was destroyed in an incident with a gym bag and a fairly large puddle. I then repurchased the palette through the BH Cosmetics website, and I decided to purchase two palettes. I purchased two palettes with the idea of having a backup in case something strange happened, and also to give one away to a friend. The palette comes in a sleeve and is constructed out of a cardboard like material. The colors are stunning, but honestly, some of them seem redundant and some of the shadows could possibly be used as highlighters. The shadows & highlighters are well pigmented and look beautiful against my olive/tan skin. The swatches below can verify this assertion. I do not know how the shadows and highlighters would look on paler skin, but on my skin, they look fantastic.The shadows do create a bit of fall out, but they blend very well and the colors, although simple, are gorgeous. Unfortunately, because of the color selection, an average consumer is not able to create anything more than a brown smoky eye or a blendable two tone shadow combination, but for the price, you really can't beat this palette. If you are expecting a wide selection of colors, you won't get that with this palette, but for simple, classic looks, this might be the palette for you!
