Comparison Week: Clarins 230 vs. BeYu 209

1. Clarins 230
2. BeYu 209

(both 1 coat over 2 coats Claire's Magic, no Topcoat)

I.C.: They are both very similar, too hard to tell if the glitter particles are the same size, but the effect they produce is the same, although Clarins is much stronger.  Perhaps with 2 or 3 coats of BeYu we could see a strong effect, but the base is burgundy, so the purple would be lost.


  1. Hmm. This is quite interesting. I won't deny that 230 is gorgeous, but I can't even fathom spending the money for it. I think I could definitely be happy with a cheaper sub. Thanks for the post!!

  2. Great comparison, thanks ;-)

  3. You're Welcome!!! Although I have heard that there are different versions of BeYu (AKA duds) so I'm unsure if this will be that easy to find.

  4. You are lucky to have 230! I've never heard of BeYu but that's also a winner.

  5. O.O I had no idea there was anything in existence close to 230!!! WOW! This comparison is amazing!!!
