BYS Glamourbox Review

Weeks ago, I finally got my own Glamourbox! I get iffy about subscription boxes because sometimes, you get some items that you don’t like and you’ll never know what’s inside. Before purchasing this one though, I went to their website, and read some reviews to make sure that I’m gonna get these items. And I’m glad I did. This is the Glamourbox Makup Pro Edition featuring the brand BYS, an Australian makeup brand. This really is a steal cuz you only get to pay PHP 1,100 for almost PHP 3,000 worth of items.

BLUSH DUO

You will either get Miss Pink or Paint it Pink. The one I got is Miss Pink. I like this one because it’s not too bright. It’s just right for my morena complexion. I like to use the darker one more since the shade on the left is too light for my skin.

NAIL ENAMEL

Most girls who purchased this box got a bright colored nail polish but I got a dark one.It’s kind of brown with glitters on it. I’m not really a fan of nail polish and I don’t wear one so I didn’t mind. My mom liked it though and I gave it to her.

MATTE LIPSTICK

I got the Tango one and it’s in the shade of red. I don’t really wear darker lipstick that stands out so getting this one is nice for a change. I actually thought red won’t suit me but I like this shade on me. It’s matte but it’s not drying your lips. Other shade you might get is celebrity status or Salsa.

CONTOUR TRIO

I never had a contour set before so I got really excited when I saw this. It’s in the shade of sweet. This palette consists of blush, highlight, and contour. It comes with instructions on the back on how and where to apply a specific shade. The blush is a nice color of pink that’s not too bright and it has some faint shine to it. This product actually won Cosmopolitan Magazine’s 2015 Beauty Awards, no wonder it’s so good.

BROW DEFINITION KIT

Since my co-worker fixed my thick and straight brows, I have gotten so obsessed with eyebrows. I’m not an expert yet on doing my brows but this kit made it easier. It includes a wax to prime your brows, and 3 powders you can choose from to create that perfect color. I use the darker brown one since my brows are already dark.

NUDE EYESHADOW PALETTE

This is the main reason why I got the box! You can either get Nude 1 or Nude 2 and I’m so glad I got the latter. The shades are somewhat the same as Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette but only more affordable. I actually saw a YouTube video where the vlogger compared the two, applied each on each eye and they look exactly the same.

 

 

My phone’s front camera and the lighting couldn’t really capture the eyeshadow shades but it has some glitters on it and at the same time, the look is natural and can be worn at daytime.

Do you have a subscription box like this? Did you like what you got?

      There’s an instruction at the back of the palette. I didn’t know about contouring at first either. YouTube tutorials help a lot.

    I’m going crazy to the nail polish you got. The color is so elegant! I also love the look you end up with. It’s never catchy when worn during the day but is very pretty to look at. <3 BTW, your brows are bushy and I LOVE IT!

      Thanks for complimenting my brows! Lol. Honestly, I don’t like the nail polish shade so I gave them to my mom. I don’t wear nail polish anyway so it’s all good.

    That’s a nice eyeshadow palette! It sort of reminds me of the Lorac Pro Palette <3 How does it apply? Does it flake off or stay on your lids perfectly all day? xo, sharon | http://www.stylelullaby.com

    Subscription boxes are all the rage, no’h? Whenever I watch my fave YouTubers they’d always feature a box or two in their video. Anyway, I’ve been seeing BYS for quite a long time but I never bought a product from that line. I think I’d get the eyeshadow palette 😉

      It is great. It’s a nice alternative for the Urban Decay’s Naked palette and much cheaper.

    WAAAAAH this loot looks so worth it! I’ve been hesitant to get another BYS box because I’ve seen the previous months’ edition which had Pantene and Dove. And while I adore those products, I would actually prefer something like this. Wallowing in regret. HUHUHU
