Review: BYS Longwear Lipstick in Blushed

Lipsticks, my dear friends, could either make or break you. Wear the wrong shade and you’ll be scarred for life. Okay, just kidding. But not wearing the appropriate color for a certain occasion could drive you to an awkward place. That’s why, when in doubt, go for neutral colors. In my case, I always lean to MLBB (My Lips But Better) shades. I’m not good in matching my makeup to the color of my outfit, so I go for the safe road. 

I have quite a few MLBB shades in my stash, but one that I’m currently obsessing with is the BYS (Be Yourself) Longwear Lipstick in Blushed. I picked this shade on impulse because I like how the color looked on the tube. I knew right then that’s it’s going to be a pretty shade. Plus, the name got me sold. Good name shade is my weakness. 

Blushed is a warm rose shade with brown undertones. It works well as an MLBB shade on my olive skintone. I’ve been using it for weeks now and I never seem to get tired of it. I like how it warms up my skin, which then gives me a natural but still polished look. It’s a great everyday shade that goes well with any outfit, but when paired with the right eye makeup, it will also look stunning for a formal occasion. And as the name suggest, it’s a great lipstick for blushing brides! *winks*
There’s very little information on their website, so I can’t tell you the specifics of this product. But from its name alone, you can expect this to be long-wearing. In my experience, it survived 4 to 5 hours without eating or drinking. It slightly fades when you eat, but it leaves an even stain. The formula is divine. It’s very moisturizing and glides on smoothly on the lips. No need to apply lip balm underneath. 
WHAT I LIKE
– Affordable at 299php,
– Pigmented. You get full coverage in one swipe,
– Has a creamy, satin finish that doesn’t bleed,
– Good MLBB shade that compliments my olive skintone,
– Longwearing,
– Impressive moisturizing power,
– Has a transparent cap, thus, you can easily spot the shade in your stash.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE
– The only thing that I don’t like about this lipstick is that, the packaging is a bit tacky. The cap does not fit snugly and the product itself wobbles inside. 
VERDICT
MLBB shades are fool-proof and this one is not an exception. Whether I wear full makeup or not, it never fails to bring warmth and brightness to my face. And, for a creamy and moisturizing lipstick, it lives up to its promise of being long-wearing. Whenever I wear it, I always feel pretty! =)
WILL I RECOMMEND?
Yes! It’s cheap and it works!
WILL I REPURCHASE?
Definitely.

    Haven't tried anything from them yet, but I'm targeting one of their mattes, a super bright pink that has the word 'disco' in the name
