Beauty | New Palettes: BH Cosmetics // Carli Bybel & Black Arts // Freedom Black Arts Eyeshadow Palette
I went palette hauling...
With its mix of mix of buttery, warm, cool, shimmer and matte shadows - this Freedom Makeup Black Arts Palette* (left) has stolen my heart - and not just because of that hella pretty red-toned shimmer shade. It's the kind of palette that you unwrap and stare at its beauty - and, in fact, I did. The packaging is sleek, function and modern with a tablet-esque twist that makes it effortlessly travel friendly. This is complemented by the wide range of versatile shades that can take you from a simpler every day eye to something rich and smoky. As a bit of a makeup addict who likes to pack in excess, I think this just may take the place of my top travel palette (currently the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette, in case you're curious).
The BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette (right) was a bit of an impulse buy - #sorrynotsorry. It was the highlighters that did it. I love the fact they have become such a makeup staple that they're now considered as essential as eyeshadow - and, they cater for most skintones. So, whilst I can only comfortable wear the lightest pink and honey-toned shades, the rich brown and gold will make killer shadows. Especially when paired with the rosy and warm hues in the rest of the palette. The enabling part: considering it was shipping from the states, the delivery from BH Cosmetics delivery arrived in around 10 days and I wasn't stung with custom charges.
