When Urban Decay came out with their Naked Palettes (Naked Palette 1, 2 and 3), other brands came out with their own version of nude palettes, too.
Soap & Glory The Perfect TenI only used this once and I didn’t like it. It’s so chalky, a lot of fall outs and not pigmented enough. And I didn’t like the packaging. It’s a good thing this is limited edition.
And then there’s BYS.
I was in Watson’s (SM Makati) one afternoon a few months ago (May) to pick up some toiletries. And I passed by the counter of BYS. It’s an Australian drugstore brand. I have never tried any of their products.
What caught my eye is their nude palettes ’cause it looked exactly like Urban Decay’s Naked Palettes 1 & 2. They copied even the packaging (of course Urban Decay is so much better). But BYS didn’t look cheap at all.
The packaging is made of tin also (just like Urban Decay) but with a combination of cardboard (like The Balm’s packaging).
I swatched it and I liked it enough for me to buy both palettes.When I got home I just put it aside and I completely forgot all about it. Until this morning when I was looking for something in my make-up drawers and I saw it.
And I love it! I love it more than the NYX. I love it more than The Balm. I love it more than Soap & Glory. And I think I love it more than Urban Decay.
And here are the reasons why I like it. First, it is buttery and has a cream like consistency (so, no fall outs). Second, it is pigmented and third, it is very easy to blend.
I was very surprised cause the first time I saw it I was laughing because it looked like a cheap version of Urban Decay. I did not expect it to be good.
I don’t know if these palettes will work for you the way it worked for me. And like I said earlier I picked this up sometime in May this year, so I am not sure if these are still available. But you can check.
BYS is available in Watson’s SM Makati.
