BYS Cosmetics Peach Palette & Highlight Palette Reviews & Swatches

Some PR packages come so nicely packaged and presented you simply need to admire them for a bit before ripping them open like a kid at Christmas!

It almost felt wrong to be too quick in opening these packages from BYS Cosmetics except for the fact that I had a fairly good idea of what was inside and I really wanted to swatch these palettes & photograph them in a hurry so I could then have a decent play and experiment with them before sharing my photos and review with you all!


Gorgeous PR Packaging
So what was in the packages? It was the brand new BYS Cosmetics Peach Eye Shadow Palette and the new BYS Cosmetics Highlight Highlighting Palette

BYS Cosmetics Peach Eye Shadow Palette



BYS Cosmetics Peach Palette
The BYS Cosmetics Peach eye shadow palette consists of 12 gorgeous peach inspired shades. There is a lovely mixture of satin, matte and shimmer shades enabling both day and night looks to be created.

The shades are highly pigmented with rich colour pay off. All shades are also soft and easy to blend.

I love the fact that the colour in the palette is the colour you end up with on your eyelids. What you see is what you get.

I found the shades to be long wearing. 

The eye shadows are formulated with skin loving Mica to help leave a silky smooth finish on our lids.

There is a bonus sponge and brush applicator included in this palette for on the go application but at home I prefer to use my own full size brushes.

BYS Cosmetics Highlight Highlighting Palette

I'm a huge fan of highlighting as it adds such a beautiful youthful glow to my face and this BYS Cosmetics Hightlight palette is an absolute beauty!

Before we look at the highlighting shades themselves can we just admire this amazing on-trend metallic purple packaging - it's so pretty!

BYS Highlight - Highlighting Palette

The palette itself contains five stunning shades that would suit all skin tones.

The shades are absolutely gorgeous and include from left to right: Glam, Glisten, Gleam, Golden & Glimmer.

BYS Highlight - Shades from L to R are:
Glam, Glisten, Gleam, Golden & Glimmer!

There's actually a full length mirror under the cardboard 'Highlight' label in the above photo but I left it in place for the photo to avoid you seeing a warped selfie of me taking this photo in my pyjamas! Yes it's confession time - the benefits of working from home today I had a pyjama day! I highly recommend pyjama days for a relaxing and comfy yet still productive day!

Anyway back to reviewing this highlight palette, each shade is highly pigmented and offers a multi dimensional light to the areas of your face you choose to showcase.

My favourite areas to highlight include above my cheek bones before I add my blush, on my nose, my forehead, on the inside corner of my eyes and on my cupid's bow.

Highlighting these areas instantly enhances my complexion and adds such a lovely radiant, glowy effect, something I've found my skin losing from about the age of thirty-five to forty onwards as my skin has matured and become dryer. Damn the effects of ageing!

The shades of this palette are formulated with the finest pearlescent powder for a stunning glow.

Similar to the eye shadow shades the highlight shades also include the skin loving ingredient Mica to help leave our skin feeling and looking silky smooth.

This palette also includes a mini half moon brush applicator. Although when at home I prefer using one of my full sized highlighting brushes, this brush is better quality than other brushes that usually come with palettes, and when taking this palette on holidays I would be happy to use the provided mini half moon brush.

The recommended retail price for both the above palettes is $19.95 each which I think is a bargain given the quality of these palettes. 

BYS Cosmetics products are available from K-Mart, Gloss Accessories, Cosmetics Plus, selected pharmacies & speciality stores, or online through www.bys.com.au

Which of these two BYS Cosmetics palettes appeals to you more?

  5. The Highlight Palette - xxxxx
    I dropped my adored highlighter compact on the floor yesterday and it shattered. I was shattered too. Then my makeup setting spray nozzle died the very same day. I am devastated that two must-haves have died!
    The packaging is beautiful too!

    1. The pricing of these is a lot more affordable than the Urban Decay ones and the quality is good too unlike some more affordable palettes! Try looking in KMart for these palettes.

    1. If you need a new palette definitely check these ones out. The Peach one is really popular. On my IG several people advised that their local stores had sold out of it. So if you want it and see it, grab it!

    1. As long as you start subtle and build up you can't really stuff up using highlighter!

  22. Uh oh, I want both now! In fact I've just ordered them from the website as my local K-Mart never has the peach palette in stock. Thanks for twisting my arm Ingrid lol ♥
