Lip gloss & Lipstick on my lips Iced Candy

BYS means Be Yourself. by the way. Cute tagline right?

I’m such a late bloomer when it comes to makeup. I just started using lipstick in my Senior year in collage 1st semester and I was forced to wear make-up because of my OJT. I was designate in Human Resource department and the rules are to wear makeup! And that’s how I learned wearing lipstick and I also getting used to applying face powder.

When I was a child I heard alot of rumors that using lipstick your lips will get darker and of course who would want to turn your pink lips into blueberry horror right? (I like my lips just fine, thak you very much!) or mistake you for using cigarettes and once I an article that lipstick contains fishscales! hahaha, Thats why I stay away from cosmetics until now. But I love watching or reading how to apply make-up it’s so fascinating and I kept telling myself "someday" hahaha

Anyway onto the review 

The Iced Candy is like a Lipstick from Barbie. It’s a vibrant pastel color of pink, and when you have a pinkish lip it would look pale on you or it doesn't have any effect just makes your lip shine but no color.

What I like about it:

1. The lipstick side is creamy and pigmented.
2. The lipgloss has a very nice scent
3. The gloss side is creamy, smooth and non-sticky.
4. Glides easily when applied on the lips
5. Both sides can be worn on its own or worn together!
6. Lightly scented.
7. Widely available in Manila
8. Affordable price
9. 2-in-1 lip product.  You get a lipstick and gloss for the price of 1!

What I don't like about it:

1. Staying power is bad (more or less 1 hr without eating)
2. I feel like the cover of the lipstick will crack and break anytime soon
3. The packing might be a turn off to some as it's long

I probably won't repurchase this product because I like Covergirl even its quiet pricey and I'm not satisfied with the staying power. But if you don't mind retouching, then this product will work for you!

Where to purchase and how much?

BYS cosmetics are available in major SM Department stores and Watson's Beauty Outlets nationwide. BYS Lip Gloss and Lipstick Duo costs Php299.00

Cinderella (Disney's Cinderella)


The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella, whose merchant father remarries after the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods.

 Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming "Kit". Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as her fairy godmother, disguised as a kindly beggar woman, steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever.

Cinderella is an upcoming 2015 American live-action fantasy film directed by Kenneth Branagh, and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is inspired by the fairy tale "Cinderella" by Charles Perrault, and the 1950 animated film of the same name. It stars Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine and Lily James as Cinderella, respectively.


* The lead role was offered to Emma Watson but she declined.

* When approaching the project with a deep understanding of the fairy tale's history, Kenneth Branagh said, "It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we've all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker."
