Review: Carlibybel Palette by BH Cosmetics

I got this beauty a couple of days ago in the mail and was so excited to swatch and try the eyeshadows and highlighters out. I've been a fan of Carli and BH Cosmetics for awhile now and was so happy to hear that they were doing a collab. I did stay up on launch day to get my hands on the palette and am happy that I was able to grab one. First off the colours are gorgeous! Loves me some neutral shades. The highlights have to be my favourite of this palette as they are all super pigmented and amazing! You get 10 eyeshadows and 4 highlights in this palette for a great price. I got mine for $12.50 which was the launch price, I am not sure if the price will change any time soon as the palette is currently out of stock but you can submit your email address to be notified when it comes back in stock at BH Cosmetics.

If you would like to see swatches of all the eyeshadows and highlighters they can be found after the jump below. The eyeshadows were all quite creamy and applied well. I thought some of the darker shades were just a tad bit patchy and needed a couple of application to really stand out but they were blendable and lovely for the price of this palette. As I noted above the highlights were my fave! They applied so well with one swipe and were super pigmented.

Overall, this palette is definitely awesome with a price that is equally as awesome! The shades are great for the fall season too as it has some purples and warm tones. Have you guys tried this palette out or have plans to purchase? I would love to hear about your experiences with this palette!

August Favourites 2015

I can't believe August is over and Summer 2015 is coming to an end. On the other hand I can't wait for Fall... vampy lips, boots and comfy sweaters. The month of August I was obsessed with lip products (ok I am always obsessed with lip products) and I really loved shopping my collection. Some of the products that I fell in love again with were the Revlon balms! I love me some jumbo pencil lip products because they are easy to apply and come in so many pretty colours and finishes. Now... enough with my babble and on to my faves!

  • Colourpop Super Shock Blush in Prenup
  • Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Smokin' Whistles
  • ABH Artist Palette
  • MAC Plumful L/S
  • Physicians Formula Blush (isn't the packaging sooo cute!!)
  • Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation (fell in love again with this one!)
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart
  • Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Coquette
  • Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious
  • Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar
I've really been loving pops of color whether it be on the eyes or on the lips. What have you guys been loving in the past month? Would love to know!
