{Photo Essay}: Getting to Know BYS

One of the many things I'm pretty sure I won't outgrow in the next decade or so is my liking for getting to know brands which are of worthy pursuits. Surely, I have a lot of cosmetics and skincare stuff --- but if like me, you get a bit of a tingling feeling every time you encounter tubes and bottles and palettes of pretty makeup --- well, it's hard to stop. I guess it really is just the way girls are.

Hitting two 'birds' in one stone that day, I got to know two new players in the field: BYS {Be Your Self}, a cosmetics brand from Australia and Seda Hotel beside Muji at BGC.

But first, here's what I wore:

 It was a slightly hot day but still managed to wear my favorite jacket from Zara.

Fellow Winter Collection girls, Pax and Angela who were both wearing heavy jackets like me.

Here I am wearing BYS' lipstick duo in Dusty Rose. It's a good dupe to MAC's Please Me!

Thank you, Martha, for taking my OOTD photos!

I must've spent a good hour ogling all sorts of BYS stuff laid out for us that afternoon. One of my initial impression was that the brand was expensive and later discovering that price point was even less than Php 500.

The foundation products seemed of good quality --- not too runny and everything was packaged in black.

 Because of my genetic disposition {LOL}, I stayed away from the eyeshadows and eye liners.

They were a bit too funky and colorful for me. Though I did see some neutral palettes so do expect a post on that one! =)

BYS Bronzing Powder + swatch.

Great pigmentation. As for longevity, I'm not yet sure. Packaging can be better.

Nothing else spells being yourself than wearing neon eyeliner.

If you're the type who does, this is very good news for you because BYS are in store all over Metro Manila!

You can find BYS cosmetics at all Watsons' Department Stores.

To end this post, here's some makeup wisdom:

There's only one best person to be in this world: Yourself.

Have an amazing Tuesday, my dearest readers!
