Yaby Pearl Paint Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

Hi friends :-)

Today i'm going to review yaby cosmetic's "pearl paint" eyeshadows which i bought from 

Price: original price: 3.85$  each. ( does not ship to india!!)
          camerareadycoametics price: 3.99$  each. ( ships to india.Yayyy! :-))

Diameter: 15.5mm

About yaby cosmetics: yaby was developed by Toronto makeup artist, liz Yu, when she was searching for a solution to condensing her ever growing kit. after going through a number of DIY kit solutions, that eventually have to be replaced due to the limitations of easily sourced DIY materials, liz decided to create a more permanent and easily customized solution for all artists looking for an answer to their kits organization.

as a solution for make artists in all sectors of the industry, yaby carries palettes that provide convenience and highly customizable. each palette features built in stainless steel mixing palette, magnetic base, shock absorbing foam inserts with easy to clean surface, as well as the highly in demand freestyle palette. 

grippies and empties were created especially for the creative minds that love to condense. yaby's grippies are a life saver for depotted pans that just won't stick to magnetic palettes. these discs are made from the same materials as our pans, and will help make any aluminum pans usable with our palettes. empties are yaby's answer to the endless baggies of lipsticks and other cream products that do not require an airtight environment, saving space and time on the job, as well as security checks at the airports a breeze.

every year millions and millions of cosmetics containers are piling up in our landfills, as someone who is passionate in reducing everyday wastes, liz felt the need to spread the 'less waste' practice through yaby. every color that yaby carries comes as a refill, and can be used with our magnetic palettes. please join yaby in reusing our reclosable clam shell containers, that the colors come in, when preparing custom mixed colors to clients that will be leaving your care.

I am really liking the concept of yaby.Hats off to liz :-)

I went through all the yaby stuff that has to offer and bought some liquid foundations,cream foundation palette and two of the pearl paint eyeshadow refills.Will review the foundations soon.

As mentioned by the company these refills are enclosed in a clam shell container which are reclosable.The packaging is really secure.I bought the refills of shades "Antique" and "Midnight blue".

They are really so tiny..and cute! <3 I compared the size with a 50 paise coin,MAC eyeshadow,2 different oriflame eyeshadows and 88 palette's shadows.

With a 50 paise coin.

Yaby at the centre and others are:
(Clockwise from top)
Oriflame visions eyeshadow "Lovely", Inglot AMC eyeshadow #64, MAC "espresso", Oriflame mono eyeshadow essentials eyeshadow "espresso"

With an eyeshadow in 88 metal mania palette from coastal scents.

"Antique" is a metallic dirty olive champagne colour.

Name and number on back of the pan.

Indoors(natural light)


"Midnight blue" is a frosty golden blue colour.It has a navy blue base with lots of gold and green pearl.

    Here are the swatches:

    Left: with base, Right: without base(pics taken in sunlight)

    "Midnight blue"

    • The pigmentation and texture of these shadows are awesome.
    • These are buttery smooth,almost creamy to the touch. 
    • they blend like a dream.
    • You get the same results with and without base! Isn't that enough to tell how awesome these shadows are? <3 
    • The tiny size! Yes! That is what makes these shadows special and standout among others.Even if you are not an artist you can try zillions of vibrant and uncommon colours without worrying about how to finish them up. *A big thumbs up*
    • Price.It may seem a bit higher for the quantity but the quality is extraordinary,so it justifies the price.

    • Size.Yes the size(sometimes).Not for a professional but for the common consumer.If you want to buy a colour for regular everyday usage you may not want to consider getting these,as obviously, they are going to finish up pretty quick.So this is the only con with these little angels.

    Final thoughts: Ever wanted to try yellow,green,orange and such vibrant colours but were worried that you'd not be able to finish them up? Then yaby eyeshadows are your saviours.I am very impressed with the quality of these eyeshadows and higly recommend getting them.If you are a professional then these are a must have in your kit.

    Get these little angels at They ship worlwide and international shipping charge starts from $6.89 and goes up to nearly $35 depending up on the shipping option you choose and also the weight of the total order.

    16. My sister shattered my 88 shimmer palette. Do you think my tiny shadow pans, whatever is left of them :( will fit in the yaby palette? or would that be too big. They are just a jumbled mess right now. I appreciate your help. Thanks and great blog!

    17. I am planning on getting my hands on some Yabi Cosmetics soon and I can't wait. It's too bad their website doesn't ship to India.

    18. midnight blue is awesum...n my goodness !i guess u have all the pretty shades in the world :))

    19. @Anonymous: I'm extremely sorry for the late reply dear :( i was shifting to a new wasn't able to access my blog for a very long time.Coming to your query: Yes..Yaby makes some freestyle palettes which are magnetic.So,these pans,if they are not made of alluminium,will definitely fit in those palettes.If you want more freestyle palettes then you can checkout Z palettes and SMH free style palettes.

    20. @Hotashi: Yaby doesn't but does.So you can easily get them from there :)

      @mermaidbidisha: Hehehe..I wish so :D There are soooooo many pretty shades out there which will take a lifetime for me to collect them all.
