This has been one of those palettes that has been on my wishlist for the longest time! And it’s not like it’s expensive (it’s only £10 full price and the BeautyBay range is always on discount), but I just held off for a while to make sure it was really something I wanted! And now I have it… spoiler… but I’m excited!
Price & Packaging
So, as I mentioned, it’s a tenner. But it’s currently 30% off on BeautyBay and it’s frequently 10-40% off! The packaging is actually adorable! It comes in this beautiful pastel toned packaging with white font. It’s cardboard, but does feel sturdy and nice and comes with a decent mirror. The pans are huge… like absolutely huge. And then the colours are in the same colour layout as the front of the box.
Also… it closes with a magnet… which is just too much fu. Because I’m a child.
So they are a little chalky, which to be fair isn’t that surprising considering they’re pastel tones. But they are relatively pigmented and definitely easy to work with. I feel like they’re one of those formulas you can build up to have an impact, but on one application it is only a light wash over the eyes. They fade a little over the day, but nothing that noticeable. The yellow is gorgeous as an inner corner colour though and is weirdly the most pigmented colour in there!
The Colour Story
I am loving the pastels tones, but here is what you have (I’ve * what is swatched below)
Cloud Free* – A sky blue
Euphoria* – A lilac purple
Daze* – A turquoise green
First Light* – A yellow
Golden Hour* – An orange
Serenity – A lime green
Lovesick – A pink toned purple
Day Dream – A lavender purple
I mean you have to accept that this is a pastels palette and so you’re not going to have the most pigmented, bright and popping colours of all time… but they still are pretty and I’m certainly happy to have it in my collection. And, for reference, the other BeautyBay palettes are popping!
Have you tried this palette? If so what did you think?
