Brand: BYS
Range: Mega Shine Lipgloss
Shades: Watermelon, Bubbalicious
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Available in 17 shades, BYS Mega Shine Lipglosses are very smooth with a high shine finish.
  • Sheer coverage with a hint of colour that’s more noticeable with Watermelon despite what you’d guess from looking at the tube & skin swatch.
  • Very emollient, almost liquid in viscosity.  In fact Bubbalicious was a little runny, which I was a bit suspicious of (despite its name) as there shouldn’t be that many bubbles in a lipgloss tube!
  • Verdict: Watermelon was an easy-to-wear sheer pink gloss with a hint of shimmer that’s affordable for only $3.95 AUD.  As for Bubbalicious, not only were the bubbles worrying, the purple hues weren’t really effective in adding a lilac wash to my lip tone. Nevertheless it’s an affordable gloss in a hygienic squeeze tube great for those who don’t want to spend a lot for a glossy lip.

L-R: Bubbalicious, Watermelon

RRP: $3.95 AUD

  • If the thought of drugstore lipstick brings about images of subdued colours, think again – BYS lipsticks come in a range of both sheer and subtle colours as well as pops of on trend colour.
  •  Available in 24 shades, I got to try Pretty Little Thing (sheer shimmery nude), Half Time Oranges (orange glaze) and Revenge  (deep raspberry).
  • The other thing about the packaging is that the lipstick tip is still visible even when it’s fully wound down.  I suppose it helps with seeing the colour through the transparent case.
  • The lipstick formula is quite simple – no noticeable taste and provides even coverage with good colour pay off.  As it’s neither moisturising nor drying, I recommend applying it over lip balm for a smoother juicer finish.
  • Verdict: At only $3.95 AUD you get what you pay for in packaging, but this gets a thumbs up for balancing simplicity with on-trend shades.

Range: Lip Gloss & Lipstick Duo
Shade: Dusty Rose

  • Double-ended lipstick & gloss duo that’s cheaper than a small latte!
  • The lipstick is creamy & smooth with an even coverage, but has a tendency to accentuate lip flakes as it’s not moisturising.
  • But once the lipgloss is layered on top, the finish becomes creamy smooth.  Whilst the lipstick does crease with the gloss, it’s certainly not noticeable from a distance.
  • Available in 13 shades, Dusty Rose is a creamy pale nude with the slightest hint of rose.
  • Verdict: I wouldn’t wear either on their own, but I’m really impressed with the lipstick & gloss combined. In fact I think the overall finish looks comparable with my mid-priced creamy nude glosses.  This is as affordable as it gets! Two thumbs up!

Brand: BYS
Range: Longwear Lipstick
Shade: Heartbroken
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Silky smooth and creamy, it’s incredibly soft and moisturising, even after it has settled on lips.
  • Great pigment, with full coverage achieved in just a few sweeps.
  • On immediate application, it looks moist & creamy, but once absorbed it becomes a demi-matte finish with a satin sheen.
  • The lasting power is good but moderate – which I think is a fair exchange for the lightweight soft texture of the lipstick that doesn’t overly accentuate lip lines.
  • Available in 11 shades, Heartbroken is a easy-to-wear warm classic red.
  • Verdict: Except for the packaging, I’m in love with everything else about this lipstick. Instant “red carpet glamour” silky lips for just $3.95 AUD!

Aside from the clear plastic packaging, I also don’t like the fact that even when I wind back the lipstick to its shortest height, it still stands 1cm above the bullet.

Shade: Clear

  • Read my review of the BYS Lip Plumper here.
  • ‘Clear’ has hardly any taste, and is slightly less sticky than Pink.
  • Verdict: on whether you like your gloss to brighten or enhance your lip colour,
  • Downside: Contains mineral oil, in case you’re sensitive to it.


Shade ‘Clear’ is better than ‘Pink’ for enhancing your natural lip tone.
