I know I'm a little late getting this palette, but I remember when this palette was released, it kept selling out! Well here we are today with my review.

About the Product
Beauty expert and YouTube sensation Carli Bybel designed this versatile 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette to dial up the drama and add excitement to your look. Carli's taste for chic refinement and modern elegance inspired her to select a collection of earthy neutrals and plummy brown shadows with four face highlighters that complement every skin tone. The mix of mattes and shimmers makes it easy to go from amped-up evening intensity to toned-down daytime options.
I have a good bit of palettes and this one is nothing like I have in my collection (or at least I don't think so). If you're new to highlighter, I think this is a good palette to get practice. As you can see with highlighter, the shades are very pigmented. You may want to use a light hand when you're using the highlighters, unless your looking to achieve an intense highlight you can see from far away lands lol.
The eyeshadows in the palette are also very pigmented. When I took the pictures of the swatches, the true color of the shadows showed better when it took them with the flash on my camera. I'm unsure of what was going on when I took the pictures without the flash. I guess the only thing I can blame it on is bad lighting. I will say this again, the shadows are very pigmented, and long lasting as well. I also like that this palette doesn't haven't a lot of fallout, but it does irritate me that it took a good deal of effort to clean around the shadows. What can I say I like the area around my eyeshadows in the palette clean.
I thought this would be a time to review this palette since I'm sharing Summer themed makeup and skincare products. This is a palette that is good for anytime of year, but this palette in my opinion perfect for Summer to achieve bronze and golden eye makeup looks. I will be showing a few makeup looks using this palette this week. If you're interested, you can get this palette at BH Cosmetics and now at Ulta for $14.50.
