BeYu? From what I understand it's a rather big brand, isn't it?
I must admit that you guys have more of an impact on me than magazines and salesclerks - if Google isn't coming up with some good reviews on a blog, chances are I'm not buying it. I figured that the silence might not be so much about it being a crappy polish, rather that they're not a company that's fully aware of the makeup-bloggers? Can it be as simple as this?
If you don't send out kits for review, nobody really talks about it and no-one adds it to their lemming-list because nobody knows it exists?
Or is it just too pricey? But then again, we see Chanel and Lippmann on a lot of blogs.
This is a polish I went back for. Spotted it in a store and was quite smittened. Asked the salesclerk what finish it had and if they maybe had a display, but her response was so stone-cold ("A finish? Is no such thing. It's opaque, that's what it is") I just put it back and left.
3 days later I went back and had a closer look at the bowl of polish. Yup, that's right, polish that's 70sek for 8ml ($9.70 for 0.27 fl.oz), all thrown in together in a plastic bowl where all the bottles ended up having scratches and specks of polish. Still, I bought it. With all of this going against it, this polish should be the new queen or something, don't you think?!
Maybe I am a snob, (ok, most likely) but when I go to a cosmetics store (which is rare and far between, internet for the win) I want to be able to get some help. Get to know what it is that I don't know. Helpful advice and some positive thinking.
Why else would one buy makeup in real life? It's definitely not cheaper!
Above you see what happens to be an exception to that so-called rule of researching your nailpolish. It's a BeYu polish in a shade called 314, a deep purple creme that ventures into eggplant-land. Looked like a jelly in the bottle, but was not.
