BYS Matte Maven Glamourbox Review and Tutorial

 Another fabulous box from BYS Philippines and Glamourbox! The BYS Matte Maven Glamourbox has all the matte products you'll need to take you from day to night ;)

BYS Matte Maven Glamourbox
SRP P1100

Let's check out the contents shall we? 

BYS Contour and Highlighting Kit in  Goddess
SRP P1099
Each color gave off great pigmentation and wear. I already own a couple of contouring powders already but this is definitely worth adding to that collection! It comes in a gorgeous and sturdy matte black cardboard type packaging. The only thing I did not like about it was the brush that came with it. I could do without it but its not a bad addition for those who don't mind these types of brushes. This is definitely my favorite product from the box. This alone makes the box worth buying since it costs P1099 and the box price is just P1100 and you get 6 full-sized products for that. 


BYS Matte Eyeshadow 8 Palette Neutrals
SRP P449
The colors are gorgeously flat and matte, very pigmented and easy to blend. I love how this has no hint of shimmer and the shades have the right balance of flattering light to dark shades. The colors look sorta washed out in this pic but the actual shades of this palette can be viewed here.

BYS Eyeliner Gel with Brush in Black Magic  
SRP P549
Pretty straightforward and easy to use. I love the payoff and pigmentation. I prefer using my own brush for more precision than the brush this came with. 

BYS Matte Nail Enamel Black
SRP P199
This gorgeous polish dries off to a chic matte finish. You will need 2-3 coats for a bold opaque finish. No complains here, not really a nail polish person but for P199 it's pretty good :)

BYS Liquid Brow Pen in Natural Brown and Light Brown
SRP P449
This product is pigmented and the color is a bit warm. For those experiencing dry tips you can dip it in warm water to let the ink flow out and it should work fine then. This makes filling in brows easier and I was super excited and curious to try this to see if it's going to be the same as my favorite Tony Moly 7 Days Tattoo Liner since the price point is almost the same (cheaper than K-Palette) but sadly the tip is not as fine as those two so this hasn't beaten the benchmark for eyebrow pens for me. This is a pretty good option for those who aren't good with eyebrows and want more defined arches and points. Pretty affordable too.


BYS Matte Lipstick in Latte to Go
SRP P299
A creamy nude-beige lipstick that gives off a demi-matte finish. Perfect for those who have extra dry and cracked lips like mine. Pigmentation is excellent and it stays put for a pretty decent amount of time despite the fact that I tend to lick my lips a lot so I'm not really the perfect subject for this. It looks good for about 2 hours before I need to reapply.

Overall take
What's not to love? This is perfect for beginners and beauty junkies alike with a total value of P3000+ it's definitely a steal!
