Beyu: be yourself. That’s the motto of the popular German brand. Beyu products come in a wide variety of colourful and neutral shades to allow anyone to express their personality. My first encounter with the brand happened last summer, when I was given their Biju Duo Eyeshadow in n.51 Dark Grey/Ice Blue Powder. Will we meet again?
Well, I don’t think I’ll buy any more of these duos, but I’m definitely curious to try more from the brand. The name of this eyeshadow duo is spot on: the paler shade is a light ice blue perfect for highlighting the browbone, and the darker shade is a pretty dark grey with blue undertones that adds colour and definition; both are chock-full of multi-coloured shimmers that make them sparkle like a bijoux.
The pigmentation is buildable: they provide a nice wash of colour on the lid that can easily be built up to your desired intensity. Using an eyeshadow primer will also help improve colour payoff, but on my slightly oily lids it wasn’t necessary to prevent creasing and fading as well. It holds up well on its own.
The texture is a bit powdery and not particularly soft to the touch, but very easy to blend. And overall, the result is very pretty. The shimmers aren’t too obvious and because the shades aren’t too intense, they can easily be used to create a soft smokey eye for the daytime. And while I do prefer something more pigmented, I think these eyeshadows are perfect for newbies who are just starting to get into makeup.
