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!
