Oh BOY does it feel great to be back to posting videos! I took a little over a week off from posting to kind of re-adjust my schedule on here. Posting a blog every other day and two videos a week was pretty freaking tough! My life was literally going to work from 8-5, coming home and filming, writing and editing from the minute I got home to the time I went to bed every single night so I decided to take a step back to gain some of my sanity back!

 

I know this is a blog about my tutorial, BUT I also wanted to give you guys an update. I will be posting 2-3 blog posts a week and one Youtube video a week every Sunday! Make sure to subscribe and hit the notification button to make sure you don't miss a single video and follow me on twitter to stay updated on my blog posts. That is where I typically post my blogs first because it is super fast and quick and easy! I am also in the middle of creating a new blog design so my blog posts may get scattered here and there so if you're wondering why I'm a bit inconsistent, that is why so I am sorry if that ends up happening, but it is a process! 

 

SO now that I'm finished ranting... I did a talk through tutorial for you guys this time :) I've been dying to use orange in my eyeshadows and this is what I came up with! All product details are listed below, I hope you enjoy!

Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Shadow Palette Review

Take a look at my video creating a makeup look with this palette down below and don't forget to enter my Instagram Giveaway!

 

 

Quality

Top notch. I can't go on enough about how great the quality of this palette is to something of higher end. 

The shadows are very pigmented and you don't get any fallout (at least when you use a primer which, you should with EVERY shadow product)

 

Price

Also top notch! This palette is $22 and for the amount of shadows and highlighters you get I say this is DEFINITELY worth it.

Think about it like this: You may spend $20 for a cheap eyeshadow palette and $10 for a cheap, CHEAP highlight. 

You get all the shadows AND highlights together in this palette for a discount, which saves you a bunch. 

I think the price point is spot on and affordable for anyone who's a makeup enthusiast, as well as someone who is just starting out.

 

Packaging

Couldn't be MORE in love with this! (I mean take a look at my blog, you know I love the marble!) It's very sturdy, comes with a cover so the palette doesn't open or break if something is mishandled, and the shadows are easy to get out of the pan.

The shadow pants are a teeeeny bit smaller than I prefer but the same size as the original (which I ran out of pretty fast because I used them everyday) but it's pretty standard for a palette.

 

Color Range

Pretty fair. There COULD be a few darker shadows, but the darkest one can be perfect for a smokey eye if you build on it. 

I for one am a HUGE fan of the "duo-chrome" innovation and you get 2 of those colors in here and they are absolutely gorgeous.

Are the shadows limiting to only a few looks? Not necessarily, but there could be more of a range.

Am I upset about the color range? Absolutely not, because in MY opinion, this palette gives me everything I need. AND the highlights can double as shimmer shadows because they are so pigmented, so you get a mix of both.

 

Is it good for all skin tones?

YES! You may hear some people say "oh no they are meant for only fair skin girls!" and I don't agree. When you look at it though, every palette out there works on fair skin because they don't need as much pigment in shadows!

I believe this palette can work on dark skin as well! The shadows are super buildable like I said and with a spritz of fix plus on an eyeshadow brush, you can make even the darkest shade good enough for an eyeliner. 

The highlighters are an obvious that they are perfect for every skin tone as well. I mean come one, just look at them!

This palette literally has everything for every skin tone that you will need and I am proud of Carli for helping create this palette. 

 

There ya have it! My indepth review :) Comment below on anything else you want to know and don't forget to enter my

How Colourpop Just Changed the Game for Makeup Lovers

If you are a fan of cheap makeup, you probably know who Colourpop is.

 

They were my first purchase when it came to liquid lipsticks and they pretty much changed my life! Smudge proof, long lasting and not too drying either (to some they are, but I can tolerate it)

 

Not only that.. they are also $6 each! 

 

Just take a look at their site. Most of their products range from $5-$15 for bundle options and their quality is absolutely amazing! 

 

I don't know if it is just me though, but I noticed something a bit different from their product selection with their recent collab with iluvsarahii (or Karen, if you can't pronounce her Youtube name like me)

 

From this collection (which is absolutely to DIE for) you can buy 2 eyeshadow palettes, 3 different lips and 3 lip liners for either $69 or $60, or buy them individually.

 

Wait... I can get the same thing for $69 or $60? Why would I pay more for the same thing?

 

BECAUSE LOOK! They are offering the PR bundle for just $9 more! 

 

A PR bundle?? Why would I want that??

 

Because every influencer has it. 

 

You see... if you aren't familiar with the beauty community, basically a PR bundle/package is something sent to a Youtuber or influencer directly from the brand. The Youtuber can then do whatever they want with it (make a video review, Instagram unboxing, snapchat unboxing, giveaway, throw it away, whatever! With no strings attached.)

 

Anyone who watches Youtube or follow beauty influencers DIES a bit when they see these elaborate packages (at least I do!). I often find myself wanting so badly to get a PR package myself filled with so many products!

 

I mean come on, who wouldn't want a full line of athletic clothing with their new make up!

 

But with Colourpop, now you can actually have the PR package yourself!! For a good $9 more, which, if you are already paying $60, why not tackle on another $9 for the PR box and packaging, because come on... look at how GORGEOUS it is!

 

This is the first time I have ever seen a brand offering a PR package for sale to the general public and as pictured, it has been sold out every time I've been to the website. 

Is this going to be a new trend? Maybe. Is it crazy to spend more money just to look or feel like a real beauty influencer? Maybe. Did it work for Colourpop?

 

Absolutely. 

 

I love seeing brands do stuff like this and it's SO AWESOME to see how everyone is evolving and adapting to what's hot and the coolest beauty trends (at least for me, after all, I did study PR and Marketing in college!)

 

What are your thoughts on this? Leave a comment down below or start a discussion on my Facebook or Instagram about it! I want to see if you think this is smart or a ploy to spend more money!
