BYS Pearlized 16 Eyeshadow Palette


You know that feeling when you go shopping in hopes to buy heaps of stuff, and then just before leaving, you realise you purchased nothing? Cue the impulse buy! Buying something for the pure joy of bringing something new home to play with. This is the exact experience that led me to purchase the BYS Pearlized 16 Eyeshadow Palette from K-Mart not too long ago. 

While I am a fan of BYS products, this was not really something I needed! But, after having a play around with it, I was pleasantly surprised by the results! 


As the name suggests, the palette includes 16 pearl eyeshadows. At first glance, I really liked the look of the bright and fun colours, which is why I ended up with this palette!

The palette also comes with two double sided applicators, great for quick touch-ups.

Bottom row; left.

As you can see, the colours are actually fairly pigmented for such a cost-effective brand. While some of the colours may have been a little chalky, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the eyeshadow applied!

I actually really like this palette. I think this is a great palette for those who love to have a bit of a play around with different looks and colours, but don't want to waste their "fancy" makeup! At only $8.99 I think this is an absolute steal! The palette includes some really cute colours, and I've already created some lovely looks!

You can buy this palette anywhere BYS is stocked, and online here.


Have you tried this palette from BYS yet? If so, what did you think? Have you tried any other BYS products?

  1. This looks so lovely, and come at such a great price too - but I'm so conservative with my makeup that I rarely use anything but neutral and brown colours!

  2. I haven't tried this, but I have to say I'm quite surprised at the quality. I was thinking for the price, they would be well rubbish. Even though some may be chalky, it looks like the main "common" colours seem to be fine!

    1. I didn't expect them to be so pigmented, so I was surprised! Even though there was a little chalkiness, they were still pretty good :)

  3. The swatches look great, but I'm not a big fan of BYS eyeshadows. I bought a BYS quad a couple of years ago and it was terrible! :(

    1. Aww that's a shame! Have you tried them since their "relaunch?" Maybe they've gotten better?

  4. the pink in your bottom swatch looks really pretty. was it pigmented good, is it one of the chalky ones? I'm really wanting a bright pink shadow and eveything I've got are just not pigmented enough.... great value palette for those who want to have a play with some colour, might just have to pick one up for myself :)

    1. I think that one has to be my favourite! It's such a pretty colour! Most of them were a tiny bit chalky, but it was mostly the lighter colours that were worse! It's definitely great value for just a play around palette! I mean for people looking for serious make-up, obviously this would be not great for them, but good for just fun :)

    1. I agree, some of their products can be a bit shocking, but I usually just give everything a go because you never know what is going to be good!
