Yaby Palette Review: Pearl Paints

Sorry to keep you all waiting an extra day for the fun side of my yaby review. I hope I didnt keep you too much on edge.

I went into a alot of deal in my last post about the dramatically neutral palette, so I advise you read that one first.  I had the same shock and worry about the small size of the pearl paints palette. Ofcourse with the pearl paints that dissolved as soon as I opened the palette and looked at the gorgeous shimmering buttons of bright colors staring back at me.

Pearl Paints claim to be a lot of things. Waterproof, vegan friendly, and most important and hard to be believe a creamy eyeshadow that is actually a powder. When I think of cream eyeshadows I think bright intense colors, smooth application, long lasting, and well creasing.

Yaby Pearl Paints deliver all the good without the bad.  I used the pearl paints on an avant garde look and they stayed, were very bright and true, and showed up perfectly on camera.

For best results it took a couple tries to find the best brush to apply them with, because pearl paints are nothing at all like any of my other shadows, they apply a little differently and I find them a little harder to blend.

Liz Yu the creator of Yaby reccomends Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics Eyeshadow brush, the basic white one, which will cost you 1$.  If you allready own hundreds of brushes however and don’t want to add even one more cheap one.  Any short bristled dense brush will do the trick.

Every single one of these colors has made me swoon when being swatched. Some of my favorite colors include : pp070 mermaid blue , pp061 copper ruby , pp066 butterfly blue and pp041 kamkuat.

You can find yaby eyeshadows and pearl paints at the Yaby Cosmetics Website or if you are having trouble buying them because they are sold out (yaby is very popular and this happens often) you can also try buying the shadows at Camera Ready Cosmetics.  This is where I got my Yaby eyeshadows and where I got my Lip tars.

Yaby Palette Review: Dramatically Neutral Palette

Finally the day has come!  That day I promised you months ago, and the day some of you have waited for through my inconsistent blogging and less interesting topics.  The review I have been waiting for as well.

I FINALLY got my Yaby Pearl Paints Palette and my Yaby Dramatically Neutral Palette.  I actually got them a few weeks ago but wanted to use them and make sure I could give a thorough, well thought out review.  I guess I was also a little too excited and couldnt get my thoughts together at first.

In the first lets talk about the dramatically neutral palette.  No matter how many times I have been told yaby is designed to lighten your kit and the shadow palettes are small etc etc,Nothing prepared me for how small.The actual palette  is  a little less then half the size of my 120 palette, the eyeshadows are smaller then a dime. The palette case is  clean and white and has a large mirror finished mixing palette on the back, its meant for mixing first and foremost not for looking in while touching up which is why it is a little warped.

After getting over this initial shock, I began to experiment and play.  I purchased (or rather asked my wonderful bf to purchase for my birthday) the dramatically neutral palette chiefly for the fact, as much fun as bright colors are neutral colors are your staple and you will use them for plenty more then half the work you do.  Remember when I say neutral I definitely don’t mean boring, this yaby palette is packed with gorgeous browns, sparkling bronzes, and some bright shimmering silvers and blues.  The only disappointment for me was the purples, which are quite dark, and very matte.

Now the best part. The shadows are pigmented! Really pigmented, and they show true to color on camera, everything from my dinky digital camera to big professional cameras with lights and all that good studio stuff. I used them on a recent photoshoot for an actresses head shots and they sure looked amazing.  I will post those pictures when I get them so you can see for yourself.

All in all I think it was a worthy buy, if i get the something brights I am pretty sure I would never have to buy another eyeshadow again because with all three yaby palettes I would be covered.  The little buttons of shadow are small, but so pigmented and wonderful I need to use less, plus they arent breaking my back with extra weight in my kit.

I would buy again.

Now for what the public wants:

Swatches and photos

Ps. I am only using the 120 palette for measurement I AM NOT saying the 120 palette and the yaby palette are any way alike or that the 120 palette is anywhere near the quality of the yaby palette.

PPS. Pearl Paints review NEXT

Yaby!

Most girls probably dream about boys or chocolate or something along those lines. However, for the past few weeks I’ve been exclusively dreaming about Yaby eyeshadow palettes.

Yaby was made by Canadian Make up artist Liz Yu, make up made for artists by artists.  Not only was it made to reduce the ridiculous amount of makeup containers ending up in our landfills every year, it was created for the easy diy palettes and to lighten the load of your make up kit.

The eyeshadows, which I’ve been drooling over for months (and will continue drooling over until my birthday) are highly pigmented and come in every color you could want.  You can buy premade palettes of 40 starting at 110$ for the basic eyeshadows which come in neturals and brights, or a mixed palette of pearl paints and basic eyeshadows for 120$, or the pearl paint palette which gives you every pearl paint there is for 136$.

If thats too pricey for you,  you can buy an empty eyeshadow palette for around 18$ and start adding to your collection slowly, each basic eyeshadow costs 2.75$ and  pearl paints cost 3.55$ they both come in refill pans of 15.55 mm in diameter.

Everywhere I look Yaby is getting outstanding reviews from esteemed make up artists.  Highly pigmented eye shadows, revolutionary creamy powder pearl paints, at affordable prices.

You will have to wait until october for my review on these guys, but prepare for me to rave like a lunatic for weeks after I recieve them.
