When PYT Beauty launched back in summer 2018 I was *all* about their sole launch of the original Day-to-Night eyeshadow palette, a collection of cool-toned neutrals. I didn’t jump on purchasing it though because I felt like I couldn’t justify buying more neutrals when I already owned more than enough neutral shades that I loved. Somehow their brand fell off my radar until earlier this year when I was seeing the warm version of their Day-to-Night palette everywhere and I was intrigued to see what the brand had become after not being in the loop on their line for 2 years.
Since my makeup collection (particularly my eyeshadow collection) had dwindled down to random bits over the last year (I legit stopped wearing makeup for a LONG time) I couldn’t stop checking out PYT’s eyeshadow palettes and decided that now would be the perfect time to give them a chance. Over the course of a month I purchased a few bits here and there and wound up with this haul of two palettes, a concealer, an eyebrow pencil, mascara, and a lip gloss.
- PYT Beauty Day-to-Night Eyeshadow Palette / Cool ($32) – This is the palette that started it all with PYT Beauty! I think what drew me to this palette in particular is that it’s more function over form – you have your base shades, a few all-over lid shades, shades to spice things up for night looks, and an eyeliner. I don’t need a massive neutral palette of 20 similar looking shades – I definitely prefer this minimal functional style of palette. I went through with this purchase knowing that many have noted its pigmentation is not as deep as the warm palette, but I’ve seen gorgeous looks created with it and wanted to give it my own whirl. I do have to concur that it’s not highly pigmented, these shades lack depth and create more subdued natural looks. I love natural looks and I appreciate eyeshadows that are forgiving, so this doesn’t bug me in the slightest. My most used combination so far is probably the obvious kill – I go with the 3 beige and brown shades most days and I also like to plop the olive green shade in the outer corner. I have yet to play with the cool pinky shade, but am feeling inspired to get creative with it now that I’m writing about this palette.
- PYT Beauty Day-to-Night Eyeshadow Palette / Warm ($32)- When I purchased this palette I wanted to step out of my comfort zone of neutrals and try something new and creative. Like the cool palette, this one also contains 2 base shades, 4 matte shades and 4 shimmers. The shades in this palette definitely have more pigmentation and depth to them compared to the cool palette and they feel a bit more buttery. I haven’t played with this palette as much as the cool one since I’m kind of intimidated by it, but the look above is one that I had a lot of fun with because it’s out of my comfort zone but still wearable and warm and pretty for Fall. With this look I used the golden olive shade all over the lid, reddish copper shimmer shade in the outer corner, and the matte dark brown for eyeliner. I’m still struggling with makeup photography, but I assure you in real life this look was thoroughly blended out! Ha. I love that with these palettes you really can’t go wrong with any shade that you pick up because they’re so multi-purpose and it’s so fun and easy to add as you go along.
- PYT Beauty Primed + Ready Mascara ($20)- I actually purchased this mascara with the cool palette as part of a bundle that they offer which makes it close to being a free mascara! This one is dual ended, complete with a clear primer on one end and a black mascara on the other. My favorite thing about it is actually the primer which I like to use as a brow gel, it might be the most perfect brow gel ever that separates hairs and keeps them in place without feeling crunch or wet and goopy. For me, the mascara is so-so – it gives an extremely natural look and it takes some work just to build up the natural look. But I do like that it doesn’t clump, smudge, or flake and that it’s gentle on the eyes (in terms of not stinging or clouding up vision) when removing makeup.
- PYT Beauty All Over Concealer Stick / shade Light Peach ($18) – This concealer features a twist up stick on one end and a brush on the other. The formula is quite dry and waxy at first, until you break through the outer layer of the stick to reveal a more creamy product underneath. It’s best blended with a brush at first, and then when my concealer became more creamy overtime I started using my fingers to blend it out, although a brush still works well. For lack of kinder words I have to say the included brush is worthless and does nothing in the way of blending. It gives better coverage under the eyes where it can be built up to a medium coverage, but I don’t find that it covers blemishes as well. I’m still up in the air as to whether I would consider purchasing this again.
- PYT Beauty Brow Pencil / shade Taupe ($16) – PYT’s brow pencil is retractable and comes with an angled pencil on one end and spoolie on the other. I find this to be a true taupe shade with no underlying warmth to it and it’s perfect for my medium brown brows. I find this pencil to be really easy to work with and it gives my brows a nice natural look when I use light strokes. This is definitely a great inexpensive clean pencil and I plan to repurchase it in the future.
- PYT Beauty Plumping Lip Gloss / shade Influence ($15) – I virtually wear no color on my lips, although I should because no one wants to see these pale dead things! Which is what compelled me to try this lip gloss given that it looked like a nice nude shade. It plumps without a harsh tingle and it feels great and moisturizing on the lips. But alas, I’m not happy with how this shade looks on my lips because there’s more warmth to this nude than I was expecting. If I had more natural pigmentation to my lips, I believe this gloss would look more like I was expecting – a browny nude MLBB. It’s a great lip gloss though and I would like to see it available in more shades.
Out of this haul I’m most satisfied with the palettes and the brow pencil, so if you’re interested in diving into this brand those are the two products I would definitely recommend trying first. I hear that their blushes are great too which I have yet to try but I want to pick up the shade Exhale which is a gorgeous dusty nude rose.
