I’m going to skip the lengthy intro and go straight to the point: the special edition BYS Makeup Pro Glamourbox is AMAZE.
This box is a steal, too! You get six full-sized products (valued at PHP2894) for only PHP1100. No silly samples (that’ll only end up in drawers, sealed and unused until they expire) and everything included are things I think every makeup girl needs.
Here’s what I got in my box:
BYS Blush Duo in Paint It Pink (PHP349)
This thing is crazy bright and a little intimidating, especially for someone heavy-handed like me. A little goes a long way and I had to blend like crazy to get a nice, natural-looking flush.
The other duo they send out is Miss Pink.
BYS Matte Lipstick in Celebrity Status (PHP299)
I’ve sworn off red lips for the time being, favoring pinky nudes and purples (the darker, the better) so I was a little meh when I saw the tube in the box. I swiped it this morning and was surprised at how flattering it was on me. It’s not very matte but at least it’s not chalky and swipes on like butter.
Other shades they send out are Tango and Salsa.
BYS Nail Polish in La Di Da (PHP199)
I NEVER wear nail polish on my fingers because I chew them into stubby jagged things and the only color polish I wear is gold (and I wish I had gotten that instead!). My mom would put this to good use cos purple is her favorite color.
BYS Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Nude 2 (PHP1199)
The highlight of this box! I only have three eyeshadow palettes (this one included) and two of them are Naked/Naked2 dupes lol. I like how sturdy the case is; I’ll have no fear taking this with me when I travel. Guestlist (second from the left) is such a pretty, burnt-orange color that got me excited as soon as I saw it. Maybe it’s just my morena-ness but it didn’t go on as vibrant as I wanted it to. STILL LOVE U.
BYS Contour in Sweet (PHP449)
The only thing I didn’t test from the box because I was running late and I didn’t want to take any risks with my contouring (I have trouble enough blending my nose). This palette won a Cosmo Beauty Awards recently, though, so I have no doubt it’s a good product. I promise to wake up 10 minutes earlier tomorrow so I can test it out and snap some sweet ass selfies practicing the fish gape.
BYS Brow Definition Kit (PHP399)
I’m pretty much set on my brow routine but my trusty brow pencil automatic lead thing fell off (and disappeared into the blackhole that is my bedroom floor) yesterday so I decided to give this a try this morning. I was SHOCKED that the medium brow color went on like a color pen? Told ya I’m heavy-handed. I’ve also never used brow wax in my life so this required a little bit of experimenting.
Anyway, our intern complimented my brows so I guess I did a bang-up job.
On my mug:
I think all the products included are perfect for creating both daytime and nighttime looks and I can’t wait to try and attempt Carly Rae eyes with Midnight (last color on the Nude 2 palette). Quality-wise, I like BYS; it’s just the flimsy-feeling packaging that worries me.
