BYS Lip Colour Stick: Thistle Do

My two favorite lipstick shades are pink and red. Late last year, I got hooked on MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry. I even posted a step-by-step tutorial on how to apply it, you can read the full entry here.

Anyway, when I attended BYS' 2nd year anniversary last month, all guests were given a bag filled with makeup. And guess what I found, a lip colour stick in Thistle Do! It's purplish pink and I love it!

BYS Lip Colour Stick (06) Thistle Do 15g PhP 349

What I like about BYS Lip Colour Stick:

  • creamy & buttery- glides really well
  • highly pigmented- you can achieve the color in one application
  • no chapped lips
  • unscented
  • suits women with darker skin tone
  • affordable
  • no need to sharpen

If you noticed, the shade of the lipstick appeared to be matte in the first photo. That is because I turned this lip color into a matte shade. How? By lightly pressing tissue paper on my lips after application. I think I did it 3 to 4 times but you can do it once or twice only. I just did it for this photo shoot.

Don't get me wrong, the lipstick is not shimmery, just the right amount of gloss. I just like the effect of its shade in matte.

The color varies from one skin tone to another. When buying a lipstick always make sure to swatch it on your hand or if you are not maselan, you can actually try it on your lips ; p

The color appeared lighter on my lips, more like neon-ish that's why I said earlier that it will suit better for women with darker skin tone.

This shade reminded me of my MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Behave Yourself minus the shimmer.  I think Thistle Do is 2-3 shades darker. I can combine the two together to form another lip color so I think I am going to keep this lipstick for now.

BYS Lip Colour Stick is available in 5 other shades: Pout About Pink, Carrie's Cosmopolitan, Tropical Punch, Strawberry Daiquiri and Heat Wave.
