Carly Bybel Palette Review
|Carly Bybel Palette|
This palette has a row of satin and semi-matte eyeshadows, a row of shimmery eyeshadows, and a row of highlights. The texture of the powders are amazing. They are buttery and soft. They blend easily and don’t have a lot of fallout. This has been a great neutral palette for me. I sometimes want an all matte eye but, I think that makes me look a little heavy around the eyes. This palette has given me a versatile look. These are all neutral colors that work for everyday looks.
I am in my 30’s. Glittery eyeshadows are not and never have been my thing. I don’t want to look like a teenager playing with makeup. I have grown up quite a bit and my makeup style has to reflect that. This palette gives me what I need to create a modern, age friendly look on an everyday basis. I am constantly reaching for this palette. The highlights are a beautiful and dare I say creamy texture and aren’t to heavy for my deep caramel skin. Most highlighters tend to look ashy on African-American skin tones, especially deep skin tones. These apply great and wear great to all complexions. I love the way these feel. They are so smooth I have used them as eyeshadows too.
The construction and design of this palette is very clean. White cardboard with a big mirror and magnetic closure. This palette is great for travel. The slogan on the inside is a great one to live by. “Aspire to Inspire” That is a great quote.
This is the first time that I have ever purchased a YouTuber and brand collaborated product. I must say that I am not disappointed. This palette lived up to the hype and guess what? YouTube made me buy it.
Becca Shimmering skin perfector review- Opal and Blushed Copper
I had been hearing and seeing all the hype about Becca Shimmering skin perfectors for a while. I had seen so many reviews, swatches and demos. I really liked what I saw and heard but still wondered what all the hype was about. So, I finally dove in and ordered two. I wanted the one that was most raved about which is Opal. But when I was shopping online, Blushed Copper caught my eye. It looked like someone had taken a bronzed diamond and put it in a compact. It was so gorgeous I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. The product and the packaging are so gorgeous and the result of this skin perfector is beautiful. I can’t say enough about this product but what I can say, to sum it up in one word, gorgeous. I wasn’t expecting to love this product but I do. It gives a beautiful glow on my skin tone. It makes me look lit from within. I love this skin perfector and I use it also as a light blush on the days when I’m wearing minimal makeup. This product is every bit as much of a gem as it looks. Its especially stunning on tan and deeper skin tones.
Now let’s talk about the star of the show, Opal. This product was so hyped up I almost didn’t purchased it. I was so skeptical, as usual, about it that it made me go and google it. After I had read 35 reviews and blog post and watched 60 videos, I added it to my cart and checked out. I waited ever so patiently for them to arrive. Even after the order was placed I was still having second thoughts. So then they arrive at my door and I must say the angels were singing. Now I know why Opal is so raved and talked about and recommended so much. It is the most gorgeou and yet universal highlights ever. I love the way it makes you look lit from within. So beautiful on every single skin tone. I just can’t say enough. I will say that these will be a repurchase. They are always in my makeup bag and I use them every single day that I wear makeup. These two products definitely get five stars each from me. I actually don’t know how I was living without them.
