Carli Bybel BH Cosmetics Palette Review



Hi loves!
I ordered the Carli Palette the day it launched on the BH Cosmetics website, I'm all for supporting YouTube Gurus! Having never ordered anything from BH before I was curious of the quality. As  I live in the UK, I did have to pay more than usual for shipping, but it was a LOT less than ordering from the US Make Up Geek website or Morphe Brushes!

The palette took quite a while to arrive due to shipping delays (which I expected), but once it arrived I fell in love. It retails at $12.50 in the US, and converted into pounds I got it for £8.59 (ish).
The first thing I noticed was the cute white packaging, including a mirror which is a bonus. It feels a little flimsy as its made out of cardboard,  but I haven't had any longevity issues with it yet.






There are 10 gorgeous eyeshadow shades, both matte and shimmery, complimented by 4 shimmery highlight shades, perfect for tops of the cheekbones, brow bone, inner corners of the eyes and tip of the nose. One thing I could have benefitted from in the palette was a light brown shade. All the matte shades have a mauve/purple tone.
I have brown eyes and unfortunately mauve doesn't always look too good on me.

The pigment of the shades are absolutely gorgeous. The shimmers especially are so buttery and easy to apply. I apply the shimmery shades to my lid using my finger as this way definitely gets the best colour pay off.

On days I'm not wearing any false tan, I love to use the palest highlight shade (furthest to the left). As it has a slight pinky undertone to it, it really compliments my fair skin. When I'm having a tan day I use the one next to it mixed with he 3rd one on the bottom to create a soft sheer wash of bronze.

Overall, for the price of £8.59 in the UK (depending on exchange rates), it is amazing value and quality! If you like buttery shimmery shades and neutral/mauve shadows, this palette is definitley for you. Grab it while you can, as i'm sure it's bound to sell out again really soon!

No this post is NOT sponsored and I bought it myself!

January MAC Haul & Morphe 35O Palette | mollysbeautylife

Every 5-6 months I do a huge bulk make up order of everything for my kit, foundations, concealers, powders lashes lipsticks etc etc, but Nearly every month I do a Top Up Order for my Make Up Kit, mainly to top up things i'm running low on, or sometimes I like to try new products. At the moment i'm OBSESSED with the Morphe Brushes 35O Palette, full of warm shades. I'll put a picture in below! Also I can't live without the Make Up Geek eyeshadows, what's great is they're now sold from the UK, yay!

Fortunately I get the MAC Artist discount which helps ALOT when i'm doing a bulk order. 





This month I was feeling full coverage products to cover up the winter blues!






Studio fix powders in NC15, NC25, & NC35. I'd never tried these powders before but oh my gaddddd they are amazing! Super full coverage but absolutely not dry on the skin. These have a completely different texture to a setting powder, these are much softer, easier to blend and amazing coverage. I use these over liquid foundation for that extra flawless look.
Studio fix fluid in NC20 & NC30. Favourite MAC Foundations of. all. time. These have a satin-matte finish and if you have dry skin like me sometimes I don't need to add a powder on top.
Prolongwear Concealers in NC20 & NC30. Personal favourite MAC Concealers. Medium-full coverage and definitely build able. Only Con is the glass bottle packaging, it breaks super easy :(!
Sculpting powder in 'Shadester'. I watched Jaclyn Hills Favourites video and she mentioned this sculpting powder. It's definitley more on the warm side so not for us fair skinned girls but looks amazing on tanned skin.
Lipstick in 'Creme de nude'
Mineralise skin finish 'Dark Golden'. I have the MSF's in Dark, Dark Tan & Give Me Sun, but I saw the Dark Golden a lot on social media recently so wanted to give it a try! So far, I like it best out of all of them!






Morphe Brushes 35O Palette!! It retails on their website for $22.99 I believe, thats £15.95 in pounds, an UNBELIEVABLE price for such beautiful shadows! (I also used the JACATTACK code for 10% off). Sooo happy I finally got my hands on this! The other palette I have from Morphe is the Jaclyn Hill Favourites palette which holds 28 shades, the 35O holds 35. It wasn't until I compared the palettes side by side I realised the 35O is a much sturdier and chunkier palette, slightly heavier and feels marginally better quality.

I've bought quite a lot of the Morphe single eyeshadows after I purchased the JH palette and yeah, they were 'OK', nothing astonishing. After I received this 35O palette I am blown away! The quality feels very different... i'm not too sure if all of the shadows come as singles but it would be interesting to know the difference in quality. 

It been restocked quite a few times due to it selling out so definitely sign up for the newsletter to get an email as soon as it restocks. If you like warm eyeshadows, all in one palette for a great price - this is for you.

Hope everyone has a fabulous February!

Metallic Gold Glitter Smokey Eye | mollysbeautylife

Hello my loves!

Hope everyone had an AMAZING Christmas and New Year!
Yesterday I filmed a make up look for my YouTube Channel, and it definitely didn't go swimmingly.
What could have gone wrong, went wrong, from my camera cutting out footage, memory cards breaking, laptop not having enough space for the files, camera freezing, losing half my footage....and I could go on.

BUT I was determined to get the video up so although there are some parts missing, I wanted to try my best to get it together. Below are some screenshots from the video. This is the make up look I go to every time I go on a night out or evening event and I loooove it!
