Hi all! I hope everyone had a great Monday! I’m here with a review of the new Anastasia Beverly Hills x Carli Bybel palette ($45 USD). I picked this up in my recent Ulta points haul. I saved up my Ulta points and raked in some free makeup — it was amazing!
I thought this palette looked so pretty, so I picked it up!
Here’s the palette open:
Isn’t it pretty! Such a lovely, feminine color story. I think these colors are soft, but with all of the metallics, you can make a really bold look.
The shades are:
- Boli (metallic champagne)
- Bybel (matte reddish-purple brown)
- Mandala (metallic/duo chrome light purple)
- Libra (metallic goldish)
- Jode (shimmer teal)
- OA (duo chrome blue + purple)
- Boie (matte ash brown)
- Bear (Matte beige)
- Moo (metallic light gold)
- Chai (matte light brown)
- *Cindy (matte bright orange pressed pigment)*
- Stev (matte dark red)
- Aura (metallic red pink shimmer)
- My Angels (metallic gold)
From left to right — Boli, Bybel, Mandala, Libra, Jode, OA and Boie.
Bali and Mandala are very sheer and glittery. The are nice eyeshadow toppers, but I wish they weren’t so glittery, because there is so much fallout. And another issue I have is that Jode and OA are so similar, I don’t know why Carli chose to do that. It’s hard to tell in the photo, But Jode is more gray-blue and OA has more purple in it and a bunch of glitter –but I don’t think you need both.
From this row, I do really like the mattes and the shade Libra.
From left to right — Bear, Moo, Chai, Cindy, Stev, Aura and My Angels.
I am a fan of all of these shades. The metallics are all gorgeous! I’ve worn all three and love them. And the mattes blend very well and are so pretty.
I am glad I have this palette. The shades are good quality and look very nice on the eyes. And they are fun, but still neutral enough for every day wear.
Did you pick up this palette? What do you think?
