There’s a million reasons to appreciate Ulta but what I love the most about shopping there is that I can grab literally everything I want all in one store. If I need a nail polish, shower cap, deodorant and a yet another eyeshadow palette I have faith that I can grab it all at Ulta. You can’t beat that convenience with a stick! Sometimes I wish Ulta carried more Prestige brands but I still appreciate the fact that Ulta embraces the beauty (and budget friendly prices) of drugstore brands too. I couldn’t be happier that you can now snag ELF from Ulta (online only at the moment) and score $3.50 off and even some BH Cosmetics goodies like the mega-popular Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter.
I don’t know what posses Ulta to add the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette to their never ending lineup but I love that it happened. The Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette is now available online and in stores at Ulta for just $14.50 or less if you bring in your $3.50 off coupon. The Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette has been available online at BH Cosmetics for quite some time now and has been racking up great reviews but I could never quite pull the trigger when it came to ordering it. Either I didn’t have enough stuff in my cart to score free shipping or it would be sold out by the time I decided to finally get it.
Leave it to Ulta to make our lives easier by making it available in stores to swatch and explore at such a great price. Now I could finally check this baby out in person and decide if it was really worth adding to my collection. Long story short: yes. The BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette is super cute and actually pretty decent quality at a great price. For about $15 you get 10 neutral eyeshadows and 4 highlighters that work for a variety of skin tones. The Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette features a mix of cool and warm neutral shadows with 5 mattes and 5 shimmers to create soft, smokey looks like YouTube sensation Carli Bybel.
The eyeshadows seem to be rather nice with the shimmers sporting a soft, smooth texture and crazy pigmentation with the mattes being a teeny bit chalky but easily workable with a primer. So far, I think the shadows aren’t too shabby. They’re not Too Faced or Anastasia Beverly Hills quality but I think they’re not too bad at all for 15 bucks. The highlighters are easily the best part of the palette for me though. There’s 4 highlighters ranging from pale pink to deep bronze and they’re all incredibly pigmented and silky smooth. You’d think they’d be gritty and loaded with chunky glitter but the highlighters are actually quite beautiful and contain fine shimmer that doesn’t leave them looking glittery or metallic. In fact, the highlighters remind me a lot of my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors and seem to give the same kind of glow which really blew me away. These things are freakin’ amazing! I was a little hesitant to order the Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette at first but after seeing it in person there’s no denying that it’s pretty damn good for the price. So far, it seems that the Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette is the only BH Cosmetics product Ulta carries but I’m hoping that we start to see more products in the future because it’s so much more convenient than ordering online or waiting to catch the best sale. If you’ve been curious to buy the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette as well I think it wouldn’t hurt to check it out at your local Ulta. You may end up liking it too!
