BYS - Stepping up in the game?

Hi Pretties

When I was at Kmart today I saw that a full sized BYS stand had popped up!  My local Kmart's have all stocked BYS in smaller stands, but never one the same size at the other cosmetics.

Of course I had to check it out and some of the products seemed to have change packaging and there were some products I had never seen before as well.

The products are just as cheap as always.  Foundations under $10, nail polishes $4, lip products $3-6, blushes under $4 and an assortment of other goodies.

I'm throughtly enjoying the 'rise of the cheap cosmetics' with BYS, Essence, Ulta3.  I think all are great quality for the price.

I picked up 3 things to try.  I got a blush, a lip gloss and an eye shadow palette.

The blush I got is in the colour Pretty in Pink.  It's a bright baby doll pink that is very pigmented but blends out really well.  It was $3.75.

The lip gloss I got is in the colour 05 Ruby Red and it is a shimmery orange toned red.  It was also $3.75.

Both of these items say they are not tested on animals (-:

The next thing I bought is this stunning eyeshadow palette.

This reminds me of the Australis Nudist Palette that I purchased recently only the metallic version.  Like the nudist palette this comes with a mirror although this one is smaller, and is in nude shades.  The locking mechanism is no where near as good on the BYS one, so I probably wouldn't take it travelling too often, but it will be fine at home.


None of the colours have names, but I think they are so pretty!  I'm very much looking forward to playing with this palette.  It was only $5.75.

Have you seen the big BYS stands?  Are you enjoying the 'rise of cheaper cosmetics?'


  1. Woah that stand looks great. I've never seen one like that! I love the fact that cheaper products are becoming more popular, especially when they're great quality!

  2. Love the look of the blush and the eyeshadow palette...I have a BYS metallic palette that I love!

  3. i just saw that stand last week too, looks soo much better and more appealing. i'm tempted to try the BYS blushes again

  4. I noticed this as my local K-Mart too, and was very impressed! I love BYS now that I've actually tried it, and I feel silly in thinking it was terrible beforehand! How wrong I was!
    I just adore that metallic palette and will be buying it ASAP! :D
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I think it was pretty crappy before. But they have definitely stepped up their game!

  5. Time to find a Kmart near me that has this! xx
