My only complaint with the Deluxe palette is that it makes the original pretty much obsolete [I've given my original one to a family member, as I hadn't used it since getting this, so I can't get any personal comparison photos - sorry]. I definitely think that the Deluxe palette should have used less of the original shades in favour of including more new shades, so the two palettes could have complimented each other; it is only two eyeshadows and one highlighter from the original palette that haven't been carried over into the Deluxe one, and those shades have look-a-likes here. The original palette was so hard to get hold of when it was released, so it's a waste to have it be useless if you choose to upgrade.
I'd never heard of Carli Bybel before I'd bought the original Carli Bybel palette, so having certain name on the palette doesn't sway my opinion one way or the other; I wanted this because I knew that I really enjoyed the first palette, and would be sure to use the products regularly this time around too, as the powders are so easy to work with and come in shades that can be worn all year round & can be worn on any occasion.
An added plus this time around is that the products don't have that plasticy smell that they had in the original palette.
The shadows are cruelty free and vegan.
