BYS or BS?

Hey friends! Hope you’re having a lovely night so far! I’m talking from the past right now and I’m sitting on the couch eating chocolate alone on a Saturday night, it’s wild! My fiance’s away so it was just me and the girls today and I dont know what it is with them but no shit they go nuts! Telling Lucy she needed to get in the bath and she claps back with, “Mum I dont need one tonight and don’t forget, I’m always right!” hahaha yeah sure thing ya little… but she had a bath and I let her play for halfy but when I went to tell her it was bedtime she was sitting on the floor colouring in so cutely, I asked her what she was drawing and she said, “I’m drawing what the inside of your body looks like, see, the red is your blood!”…. but getting on with life and pretending my child isn’t one of the kids off Village Of The Damned, lets get into it!



So, BYS or BS? That is the question. I purchased 3 palettes from my local K-mart for $12 each! Definietly not upset about it. I’ll be swatching and doing an eye look on each palette so you can get a good understanding on my thoughts on these! Ok, first of all, the packing! It’s cute! A bit plasticy and light which is fine. It feels like it would be great for travelling! The mirror looks like I’m looking in the mirror at the fucking fun house show ride but none of that really matters to me, I just want the shadows to work!


BYS Peach Eyeshadow Palette Review


BYS Peach Eye Shadow Palette



Swatches Left to Right, Dainty, Dazzling, Slay, Pamper, Lavish, Cheeky, Peachy, Dashing, Devoted, Enticing, Brazen, Flashy

They ‘BYS Peach Palette’ actually swatched so well! The metallics are creamy and have incredible pigmentation. The mattes are beautiful and arent too chalky either. I will say though the lighest shade in the palette  didnt quite show up on my skin but might just be because my skins the same colour haha! Who Knowssss…

So I did a lil eye look for you all! I thought I’d use the pinky shades in this! I used the shade ‘Devoted’ for my base colour, then I used ‘Pamper’ in my crease and blended that out all over my lid. I then packed on the shade ‘Lavish’ with my finger as it was much easier than a brush and show a lot more shine. I finished it off with ‘Dainty’ under my brow! I hope you guys like it!



BYS Nude 3 Palette

The colour pay off on the ‘BYS Nude 3’ is just as nice! I’m loving the matte shades in this. Perfect to use as a transition and base for any eye look. The metallic are so nice and creamy and I can definetly see myself using them in a neutral everyday look. I’m not one to use cool tones, I’m more of a warm toned kind of gal when doing my eyeshadow but the shades Charcoal and Smoke are so stunning and unique to my collection and I can’t wait to play around with them!


BYS Nude 3 Eye Shadow Palette



Swatches Left to Right, Cocoa, Bronze, Honey, Golden, Smoke, Charcoal, Soot, Chocolate, Espresso, Taupe, Caramel, Cream

In this eye look using the ‘Nude 3’ I thought I’d do a smoky eye, using shade ‘Caramel’ as my base shade then going in with ‘Chocolate’ in the crease. I then went in with the shade ‘Soot’ to darken up the crease and lid making sure it all blended seamlessly. I then covered the shade ‘Charcoal’ over my lid. I did find the darker shades in this Palette were a little harder to blend but it just took a little longer. I feel it worked and I was still happy with the end result. Feel free to add you’re comments down below!


BYS Berries Palette

So I had heard that this was the perfect dupe for the ‘Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Rennaisance Palette’ so I also swatched that to compare! Not bad right???!!! If you’re on a budget why wouldn’t you purchase the ‘BYS Berries!’ They aren’t exactly the same, you can see the Modern Rennaisance pigmentation is slightly brighter and the glitters are a bit more glittery but they are pretty damn close!


BYS Berries Eye Shadow Palette


Swatches left to right, Peachy, Radiance, Glow, Toffee, Sundown, Majestic, Royalty, Cherry Bomb, Juliette, Berry Haze, Antique, Shaded


Modern Renaissance Swatches left to right, Realgar, Warm Taupe, Venetian Red, Red Ochre, Primavera, Burnt Orange, Raw Sienna, Cyprus Umber, Love Letter, Antique Bronze, Buon Fresco, Vermeer, Golden Ochre, Tempera

The shades used in the ‘Berries Palette’ to created this look were, ‘Toffee’ for my base colour, I then applied ‘Cherry Bomb’ in my crease blending it in with ‘Toffee’ so there were no harsh lines. I then packed ‘Antique’ on my lid using my finger. I used ‘Radiance’ in my inner corner. 



Overall, I’m shook! The quality is amazing! I’m so happy to say that BYS Cosmetics is far from BS!  We’ve all been in the position where we wanted bangin make up but you’re body selfishly needs food to survive as a priority, fret no more! BYS is the answer! I’ve linked below there website and don’t forget you can also get these beauties from your local K-mart!
