AMW Reviews: BYS Blush Duo


Isn't it a lovely day today?  :P
Come on guys, just trying to cheer you up as most of you probably have the Monday blues!  (Or am I referring to myself?) 

To spread my "cheery" (Cherry?) mood, I will be reviewing a super bright colored blush from a brand I recently get to know!  BYS - By YourSelf!


Note: It does look as red and as pink as the photo!  Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you!
Shade: 03 Miss Pink


BYS says ---
With a choice of 2 shades from this BYS Blush Duo you can create the style you want easily. The blush comes in a lovely coral and bright pink shade, great for Spring/Summer.

Ingredients:


AMW says ---
Pros
  • 2 blush shades in 1.  Actually can go up to 3 shades (you can blend both shades to create a new color)
  • Very pigmented.
  • Price.
  • No allergic reactions.
Cons
  • A bit too powdery.
  • Can easily mess up if not applied correctly due to its heavy pigmentation (please read tips below on how to deal with this mistake)
Overall
Inexpensive yet super pigmented blush that lasts a day for normal and dry skin.

Tips
  • Use a big fluffy powder brush or k-brush (kabuki brush) for application.
  • VERY light hand is needed.
  • Over applied?  Do not fret!  Pick up your powder/powder foundation and apply it on top of the blush to lessen pigmentation.
  • Blend!  Blend!  Blend!
Will I repurchase?
If they come up with other shades.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Blush lovers!  If you love blush colors that pop, go for BYS Blush Duo!

Where to purchase and how much?
BYS cosmetics are available in major SM Department Stores and Watsons Beauty Outlets nationwide.  BYS Bronzing Powder costs Php349.00 (approx $8.73).  Like BYS Philippines on Facebook for more product updates.

Right: Bright pink with blue undertone
 

Swatch on Arm
This swatch was done once using my finger.  
The lighter pink looks a bit more powder-y than that of the deep pink.


Usage (AMW Style)
I prefer mixing both shades using my Charm K-Brush.  Can I repeat myself?  
In a very VERY light-hand motion. 

Applied from the apples of my cheeks up to my hairline for a natural contour.

Smile and you are ready for the camera!


How do you deal with very pigmented blush shades?
I have my fair share of super pigmented blush and I always finish my blush application with a layer of powder foundation on top to "set" the blush plus to lessen the blush intensity!  It works and my blush stays longer!
