As some of you might know Beautybay is one of my favorite onlineshops to buy makeup. It’s fast, they sell a lot of amazing brands and I had great customer service expericence so far.

When I saw that Beautybay created their own makeup line I was a little sceptical. But I really liked the look of their EYN Bright 16 Colour palette so I thought I’ll try it especially because it’s so affordable.
So what are my thoughts? Here we go:

PRODUCT INFORMATION:

  • The Beautybay EYN Bright 16 Colour palette retails for 12.50€ (11.50£/ $11.50) (beautybay.com)
  • Net Wt: 16x 1.4g/ 16x 0.05oz (22.4g / 0.8 oz)

FORMULA:

I’m actually really impressed with the formula. Because the palette is so affordable I didn’t expect the eyeshadows to perform that well.

But the pigmentation overall is great. They are easy to blend, too.
I really love both the shimmers and the mattes in the palette. But the shimmers you have to build up a little bit to get good pigmentation. So there are better shimmer eyeshadows on the market but fo the price you pay they are really good.

Also some of the mattes aren’t as pigmented. And not all of them you can built up that well. Like they don’t layer that well. E.g. I wanted to deepen up the outer corner with the matte brown (apply the shade on top of the eyeshadow I’d already put on). But the matte brown kind of didn’t want to stick to my skin. But that only really happened to me with the matte purple and the matte brown.
So I’d recommend to apply the darkest shades first (with the matte purple and matte brown).
I think you can find better matte eyeshadows on the market but again for the price the are great.

The eyeshadows might stain your eyelids. I don’t really mind that and that happens to me with most colorful eyeshadows that I own (i think even all of them). But I wanted to mention that.

Also I want to add that I always apply my eyeshadow on top of a sticky base (concealer that is not set with powder). That way you get better pigmentation. I also tried these eyeshadows on top of a base that is set with powder but that way I the pigmentation wasn’t as good.

PROS:

  • Price
  • Color story of the palette
  • Good pigmentation (when applied on a sticky base)
  • Easy to work with

CONS:

  • Some mattes don’t layer that well
  • To get good pigmentation you need to apply the eyeshadows on top of a sticky base (concealer that is not set with powder)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Overall I’m really impressed. You get amazing quality for a great price.
Like I said there are better eyeshadows on the market but not for that money.
I think especially if you apply your eyeshadow on a more sticky base (like concealer that is not set with powder) these eyeshadows perform amazing!

And I LOOOVE the colors in the palette! I think it’s great that you have so many fun colorful shades but also a row of neutral tones.
Highly recommend!
