Beauty Bay have long been a go-to for getting our hands on big beauty brands, but last year they switched up their game and launched their own range of affordable vegan cosmetics. Luckily for us, Beauty Bay were kind enough to send over a few goodies from the range so we could give them a trial run and give you the lowdown before spending your hard-earned cash (or student loan, for that matter).

Among the pack was their EYN Fiery Palette, a warm-toned offering which includes eight matte and eight shimmer shades. As the name suggests, there are some killer fiery colour combo options, with plenty of red, orange and purple hues to choose from. My go-to palette throughout winter has been Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette, so I was really excited to discover that these colours are essentially a brighter, more summer-appropriate version. However, colour schemes mean nothing if the quality isn’t there, so it was time to put this palette to the test.

 First impressions and swatches

Straight out of the iridescent box, the palette itself seems sturdy and has a decent quality mirror in the lid, which is definitely a plus for someone who is often on-the-go! As soon as I’d swatched the first shade, ‘All That Glitters’, I knew I was in for some serious pigment. I often find that whilst palettes get hyped up for their pigmented shimmers and glittery shades, the mattes get overlooked and are actually a bit disappointing, so was pleasantly surprised that the intensity was consistent in shades like ‘Hot Sauce’ and ‘Brisk’. So far, so good.

The application process

I began by applying ‘Peaches ’n’ Cream’ and ‘Honey Roast’ as a base and my initial suspicions were confirmed - these matte shades were definitely going to deliver. I followed up with ‘Hot Sauce’ and ‘Burnt Sienna’ to intensify the crease, and found the shades all blended really easily. 

To really see what this palette had to offer, I tried to squeeze in as many shades as possible, so went with a blend of ‘New Penny’, ‘Tango’ and ‘Ruby Slippers’ (from inner to outer corners) on my lid. Under my bottom lash line I went with a blend of ‘Adorn’ and ‘Power Trip’ to, again, give me a chance to try out more shades. These definitely lived up to the pigmentation seen in their swatches, although it’s worth noting that I sprayed my brush with water to guarantee maximum intensity, but this is something I do with all palettes. To finish off I popped ‘All That Glitters’ on my brow bone and inner corner, which turned out to be a stunning highlight colour, so I dabbed some on my nose and cupid’s bow too. 

There was some fallout, but nowhere near as much as I expected considering how pigmented the shades are. I’ve had far more expensive palettes that are much worse, and it’s almost impossible to have absolutely no fallout if you want to go bold with your eye makeup.

Whilst I stuck to the ‘fiery’ orange and red tones this time around, I think there’s definitely plenty of dark or berry toned options to try next time. I think most, if not all of the shades work really well together whilst still offering a lot of room for experimentation.

Final thoughts

It wasn’t until I’d finished testing the product that I actually checked the price, so was completely blown away when I discovered these were on sale for only £12. I’ve honestly not been this excited trying a palette since Huda Beauty’s New Nude palette (£56), so when I discovered this option is a whole £44 less, I was well and truly amazed. I’ve since browsed the whole collection online and it’s taken every fibre of my being not to add all to cart. There’s a range of brights, warms and nudes, available in 9, 16 and 42 shade options- all of which I absolutely plan to add to my collection.
