Unicorn Pee's blood relative :D

| |

Ok, sometimes chance events happen suddenly...
Oh, what a waste of words :D

Let's start from the beginning: few days ago I was browsing some Twitter accounts, because I was trying to figure out how it all works (hey, I have an account too ;> ), and I stumbled accross some tweets from The Swatchaholic, saying she found a Clarins n. 230's cousin.

It's from BeYu, a brand I've almost never heard about before that moment. It's from Germany and here in Italy (and maybe all accross Europe) is sold in Douglas perfumeries, where I never go for nailpolish rides, because of its prices.

Since The Swatchaholic said she found it in Douglas stores, I decided to hit one and, hey, I spotted a lonely bottle of n. 209, which became mine after giving Douglas €6,95 (* agh! *).

Oh well, further details after some pics :D
This polish's got even a name: "Brilliant Shiraz".

(daylight)

Indeed we can call it an almost-Clarins 230, don't you think?

Wine red jelly base full of duochromatic shimmer, from garnet red to purple, running through an entire rainbow ♥

(full sun)

Colous shifting is really noticeable; I doubt I will ever observe the one offered by Clarins' 230, but seems like in n. 230 it's way more prominent, so I really can't imagine how beautiful could be n. 230...

Note that Clarins' 230 has a cool purple base, while BeYu n. 209, as said, has a burgundy-wine red base.
As I wrote many times, I'm not a red nails girl, so I'm thinking about wearing it layered it, I can't wait to try some combination :>

Here's a colour shift in daylight, look at those hues!

And here you have it in the sun! Gold, green, teal, blue, purple... *___*

It works in shade too!

Bottle is tiny (reminds me of Zoya's ones, they're so similar, but this is like half of Zoya's), 8ml for a price of (here in Italy, abroad is cheaper) €6,95: a robbery, but it's the closest thing to n. 230 that I've ever seen, so I gave up :P

WARNING: seems like BeYu made different versions of this baby (as usual: beautiful thing are never easy to achieve...): a right one, with INCI 31 written on the back, and a duller one, with INCI 24 on the label.

I don't know any more, as I read this fact from The Swatchaholic, and didn't see any pictures of the dull version...
But if you are in Europe, and have access to this brand, please remember to check this element on the bottle!

(INCI 31, the right batch)

Unfortunately I didn't have time to swatch it or (better) wear it by now, so I had to wait until I'll return home after my vacation, maybe in the meantime somebody else will blog about it as well!


Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)

Oh wow, it's even prettier than I thought! Last week I couldn't find it in my Douglas store, but now I'm sure as hell going to ask them to order it for me :)

Chissà com'è addosso! Non vedo l'ora di vederlo!!

Elsa P. said...

E' semplicemente incantevole! Lo voglio!!
Peccato che non ci siano dei Douglas nella mia cità ç__ç Devo scovarne uno al più presto!

Simona said...

Ebbene l'ho visto da Douglas ancora prima dei vari swatch nei vari blog! Ma ho resistito.. e sì che era anche in sconto outlet al 20%. In tutti gli altri Douglas in cui sono stata dopo ho trovato solo l'altra versione.. diciamo bene per il mio portafoglio!

Stef said...

LOVE! My god that is gorgeous!

Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty said...

You did the polish justice by all these pics. Love! Can't wait to get a hold of mine (courtesy of the Swatchaholic) :)

marox79 said...

What a gorgeous polish! Unicorn pee at a more affordable price. Not cheap, but not prohibitive or HTF for that matter.
Very eager to see those swatches. In your own time.

marox79 said...

I forgot, is it part of the permanent range or a LE polish?

maisenzasmalto said...

Holy cow! Ecco dopo aver visto le tue foto ho capito perché l'Inci 24 è definito "dull". In quello che ho trovato io non si vedevano quei riflessi blu-verdi. Per niente!

Come scrivevo alla signorina qui sopra [ ;) ] alla Douglas di PaVVVVVma hanno detto che non tengono marche plebee come BeYu e Art Decò (che diarrea fulminante li colga!), come se fossero economiche, poi...
Dunque, sono ancora alla ricerca di questa meraviglia, complici anche le commesse di Douglas di Bologna che mi hanno impietosamente chiuso la porta del negozio in faccia alle 19.29 di un paio di sabati fa... :(
Comunque è veramente bello bello bello in modo assurdo!

sabbatha said...

want it!

La Bisbetica said...

ç_ç Sigh... The one and only Douglas store in my city (and in whole Sardinia too) closed months ago. I wish I had know about this gem before.

Jane said...

WOW, all the colors!! :O

thebeautycase said...

*______________* Ma è meraviglioso? Anche il prezzo non è salassoide... ma quanti ml ha questo splendore?
P.S.: ho fatto le foto (alleluja!), tempo un paio di gg e metto tutto su.

Sirena Sparklestar said...

OMG that is amazing!

Smaltoitaliano said...

Tessa, I hope you'll find it soon!

thellamenta, nessuna l'ha indossato e swatchato da solo finora?

Elsa, anch'io non ho potuto cercarlo durante le vacanze, nella mia città non c'è neanche una Douglas, pensavo fossero più diffuse...

Simona, noooo :D Non scriverlo in inglese, sennò altre dall'estero leggono e si irritano :D

Stef, try to find it!

Hi Halifax! You're lucky, I saw The Swatchaholic's pictures of her BeYu haul for CPs!

marox, I think it's a permanent colour, it doesn't have a particular label design and/or a collection name.
I'll try to wear it before autumn comes, here in Milan it will be soon just rain and grey sky...

maisenzasmalto, allora una differenza c'è eccome! Hai fatto bene a non prenderlo, allora :>

Cristina, ho colto la cine-citazione (e non so se vantarmene) :D
Io l'ho trovato in una Douglas di Alessandria, ed era l'unica bottiglietta...

sabbatha, I'm working on it :D

La Bisbetica, I can see if I find another one here, but don't count too much on it :>

Hi Jane! Yesss, I love magical colours like this *_*

thebeautycase, arrivo a vederle appena ho un attimo in più di tempo (ovvero, nel weekend :>)! Sono rientrata da pochi giorni a Milano, ma per rientrare nei ritmi... sarà un po' più dura :D

Hi Sirena! Are you too a lover of complex colours? :>

thebeautycase said...

Fatto, bella di casa. Spero sia di tuo gradimento. ;)

stregalice said...

Il 209 ce l'ho anche io (colpa di Maisenzasmalto) ma il mio anche se inci 31 non è così bello, non è giusto!! Non vedo l'ora di vedere le foto di questo indossato, sono contenta che sia finito in buone mani ;)

jewels and nails said...

wow, want, want, want

Smaltoitaliano said...

stregalice, ma sì che è così bello anche il tuo, ti pare che possa essere diverso? :D

Jewels and nails, it's harder to find this little bottle than a goldmine here in Milan :D

lackynails said...

So gorgeous, thanx for this tip! Thank god I know ONE place in Sweden that sells BeYu! *happy dance*
