BYS Blush Trio: Coral Me In

I made a sneaky little purchase on my lunch break yesterday from Hot Dollar! I tend to stroll through the aisles of random goodness, but I totally didn't realise they stocked BYS - it's right at the front of the store too...oops! I was really excited to see these BYS blush trios because I have seen great reviews (check out Emma's review - she has all of them!). While the pink one initially caught my interest, I decided not to buy it because I have the Sleek Candy Blush palette which is veerry similar. Anyway, these colours are all new to me, so for $6.50, it wouldn't hurt to experiment. 


BYS Blush Trio in 'Coral Me In'

Bright orangey shades - a bit daunting! I do like the packaging of this. It is not as nice as the Sleek palettes which feel much nicer and well, sleek. The Sleek palettes also have a mirror instead of the clear window panes. Each to their own, I think Sleek wins packaging-wise. 

OK now the next picture is not altered in any way...it is so weeeird...


The palette opens up and....WHAAAT?

Ya, what the heck?? Haha! Obviously I didn't notice this when I bought it because I couldn't open it up. It's like it has been left in the sun for too long and the exposed top part started to fade?!

Swatches

Ok, well let's ignore that. Despite that, the colours are nice and really pigmented. The middle shade is less pigmented. I also noticed that these don't have the overwhelming powder-smell that the BYS eyeshadows seem to have. Yay! 

Swatches

Upon swatching them, I thought, gosh, maybe I can't wear these colours - but they are surprisingly wearable, when done in moderation. However, because they are so pigmented, clown-face can happen easily so be careful. If you are pale, you'd probably only need a quick sweep. Having a darker skin tone means I can use a bit more. If I had to pick a favourite, I couldn't - it's a tie between the middle and right shade, both for different reasons! 

Overall I think these are a total bargain at $6.50 and I'm really happy I finally got to pick one up! I'll get some use out of this palette over the summer. I think I'll  be able to use this palette with some of the products I featured in my Apricot FOTD.

During summer, I move away from pink blushes and go for coral/apricot colours. I use my Sleek blush in Rose Gold religiously - if you haven't tried it, you really need to check it out! While I do love that blush, it'll be nice to deviate away and give this palette a go!

Have you tried any of the BYS Blush Trios?

  1. I honestly can't tell the difference between MAC and BYS once it's applied onto my cheeks! Not too crazy about their eye products, but love their blushes!

    1. Oh wow! That's awesome :) to be honest, I haven't had these long enough to say how they compare to my other blushes. I only have two MAC blushes but I always reach for my Sleek blushes first!

  5. Haha omg the fading made me laugh! I think BYS blushes are great but I had to stop using them sadly due to some of the ingredients :(

    1. I know right, I've never seen anything like this haha. Oh that sucks :( but I know what you mean, the ingredients in it aren't the best so it wouldn't suit sensitive skin.
