Lipstick Challenge Day 6: Lilac

Today's lipstick is a cheapie by the Australian makeup brand BYS.

The colour is called Flamingo Pink but in my opinion it's more an iridescent blue based lilac than a pink.

It's no secret I love BYS lippies, and this one is no exception. It's a lovely vibrant colour that's not too OTT. My only gripe with these lippies is the packagins, it looks cheap, I'm talking clear plastic lids...eeek, but the quality of the lippies are fabulous! The formulas are very similar to the NYX lippies, very creamy.

I wear this lipstick quite a lot, and will definitely re-purchase it when it runs out. At around $4AUD why wouldn't I repurchase! That's the price of my morning coffee.

Foundation: Revlon Colourstay in Nude 200
Powder: MAC MSFN in Medium
Blush: MAC Melba

Eyeshadows from the MAC Play It Cool Palette (top row)
Eyeliner: UD Zero Black
Mascara: Maybelline The Falsies

Lipstick: BYS Flamingo Pink

Have you tried BYS Lippies yet? And do you know any other lilac lippies in other brands? I'm keen to try others.


  1. Love this shade on you! As I can see you are doing great with the challenge ;)

  2. I love this one! Looks fantastic on you! I LOVE HOW YOU WEAR LIPSTICK! So much envy!!

  3. I'm loving this one and the coral on you! :)

  4. I always LOVED lillac lips, but they never looked right on me :-( Mac fashion mews, lavender whip, barry m 129...all amazing colours but terrible on me :(

  5. I have a few bys lippies and i agree with you they are awesome especially for the price! some I find can be a bit too creamy though...maybe i need to put them in the fridge!

    Loving this colour!! xo

  6. @Marusya - thanks hun, challenge is almost over :)

    @Haute_style - thanks gorgeous, it's only coz lips are easier to do than doing the dark smokey eyes you're so good at.

    @Vita - thank you, suprisingly I really liked the coral too

    @Ellysmakeupbag - maybe with greyish eye makeup you can make lilac work for you? And thanks for the recommendations, I've been meaning to check out Lavender Whip but can't find them anywhere.

    @Hannah - yeah some of my BYS lippies I have to put in the fridge during summer as otherwise they just melt!


  7. This is such a gorgeous colour!!! I should really check out BYS lippies!!! They look pretty good quality!

  8. I love colors like this - they're so pretty!

  9. That lippie looks really pretty on you!

  10. Hi, just found your blog. It's excellent! I was wondering if this colour is a close match to Covergirl Spellbound? Thanks heaps.

  11. Hi Anita, thanks for your comment! No Covergirl Spellbound is slightly darker and more vibrant than this BYS one. Hope that helps.
