Welcome to The Great Beauty Try-On, where we seized the opportunity to test-drive the best-selling makeup products from some of your favorite beauty brands (plus some newcomers!) and documented the process along the way.
I’ve been a fan of Byredo for a long time. If you see me in a department store (or any one of the ultra-cool boutiques that carries the brand, for that matter), chances are I’m at the beauty counter stealing a spritz of divine-smelling Byredo perfume or sniffing my way through a row of its deliciously scented candles.
So when I got the opportunity to try the cult-favorite brand’s makeup line, you can bet I seized it. The collection’s minimalistic packaging mirrors Byredo’s iconic perfume bottles and makes you want to give each product prime real estate on your vanity. But it’s what’s in that packaging that really sold me. Whenever I’m buying something with a high price tag, I expect to see results. And fam, I was not disappointed. Want to see the products in action? Keep scrolling to see the look I put together with some of the best-selling items, including a jet-black mascara, creamy eye shadow, and a liquid eyeliner that has trumped all others that have come before it. Prepare yourselves for a very full online cart.
