Compare the Pair – BYS Peach vs Peach 2

I was extremely excited to hear that BYS was realising some new palettes and one of those is the Peach 2 Palette. I recently did a Review of the original peach palette and it really is something wonderful and yet so affordable, so I knew that when the Peach 2 came out I was going to buy it. I thought that I would share with you guys a little comparison of both palettes.

So the most obvious difference between the two palettes would first be the layout. Now the thing is, the layout is definitely a personal choice on which one you would prefer, so I can’t really say one is better than the other. The one thing that does bother me about this new layout is the fact that there are no eyeshadow names. Now, this really isn’t a big deal, but as a blogger, I do like names. The other thing is, most high-end shadow palettes have names and that all of their previous tins had names and this one doesn’t, I don’t understand why they did that; I just feel like it adds a nice touch to the feel of the palette.


The colour choices are the next difference between the two palettes. I feel as though Peach OG is the more subtle sister and Peach 2 is definitely more out there. I would probably say that around seven of the twelve eyeshadows are very similar, which when it comes down to it, is over half of the palette. Peach 2 has more mattes and in my own opinion, I feel as though it is more peachy and bright, with both pinky colours and orangy tones as well. The Original Peach is much more of a peachy nude palette with more subtle shades but still has a few bright shades.


One thing I don’t really understand about these two palettes is the price. Now $3 is not really a big deal and any twelve pan eyeshadow palette here in Australia under $20 is what I would consider affordable. However, I don’t understand why there is an increase in price. There are no names on the shadows and I also noticed that the Peach 2s highest ingredient is Talc and yet the Originals Peach highest ingredient is Mica. Now I know nothing about makeup chemistry, but I just don’t understand the increase in price considering a cheaper ingredient is higher on the list and there are no names.


When it comes to quality of these shadows, I really do feel as though they are very similar. They both are extremely pigmented and are so easy to work with. I find that pretty much all BYS eyeshadows are of the same quality. These shadows do last all day and generally are a pleasure to work with. I do find, however, that the Original Peach’s shimmer shades are a little bit more pigmented, however, it’s nothing too major. As for the matte shades, I feel as though they are all the same.

Overall, I really enjoy both palettes and I find that BYS consistently makes great eyeshadow tins. Of course for this post, I should ideally pick which one I like best, but I really do feel as though it comes down to the person. Orginal Peach is much more subtle and great for someone who isn’t super into colour and Peach 2 is definitely more out there and has much brighter colours. I feel as though the quality of these palettes is the exact same, so I really think that it comes down to whether you want a brighter or calmer palette. For me personally, I prefer the Peach 2 as I enjoy more crazy colours.


Do I think you need both palettes? Honestly, no. Half of these colours in both palettes are the same and the different colours really are either bright or subtle. Of course, if you would like both, there are differences and you are still getting five different colours. However, most people do have a preference of whether they like more bold looks or not and so if you do prefer one over the other, really, you would only need one.
