GlamourBox Unboxing: BYS Make Pro box

By now, everyone and their mother know that the Philippine beauty box scene is entering its annual “Special Edition” period. BDJBox unveiled a Revlon Special Edition Elite Box last month. I have a BDJ Elite Box purchase for September, but I know they usually send out towards the end of the month. I thought Glamourbox does the same; I’ve never actually preordered from them before so I had absolutely no idea.

Imagine my surprise when our condo security called me up to receive a delivery. I was sure I didn’t have anything getting shipped today. I even worked at home yesterday to ensure I received all my packages in the mail on a weekday. When I got the Xend package, I nearly died when I opened it because omgomgomg!! It’s the BYS Makeup Pro box!!

I was actually thinking of tweeting or instagramming Glamourbox yesterday to inquire when they were going to start deliveries, but I got my box today, so yay for me!

Since I have work today, I didn’t plan on opening any of the contents to swatch and test. Sunday’s usually my makeup playing day, but I couldn’t resist taking pretty pictures to show off.

Probably a quick intro on my experience with the BYS brand: I’ve never tried any of their products before. I’ve seen the BYS counter in SM Cubao all the time, whenever I’m prowling the Maybelline, Revlon and L’Oreal counters. But I have never actually walked up to the counters and tried to swatch any of the products. I’m generally drugstore-averse these days because I hoard so many high end makeup products, and I just generally like the quality of high end products. I knew the next Glamourbox was going to be BYS and I thought, hey, why not. If I end up really liking the product, SM Cubao is just 500 meters from my house and the brand was at a really good price point. Anyway, enough blabbing, and let’s get to the product!

Let’s talk about handbags.

OK, so I got lazy in the past couple of months. I was busy with work (omg, don’t get me started on work!) and I’ve been making excuses on posting on here. And besides, I didn’t think what I’ve been doing lately is particularly interesting.

And what I’ve been doing lately is buying and modeling handbags! I love pretty things of all sorts, but lately, handbags have been my thing. And not just any handbags! I’m talking premier and contemporary branded! I did a collage some time back of the handbags I’ve got (this was about a month ago! I’ve amassed quite a bit more since then)

Bags, bags, bags!

Bags, bags, bags! Clockwise from top left: Loewe Amazona 28, Mulberry Alexa, Coach Madison Julette, Coach Ashley, MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton EW Satchel, Gucci Diana Tote, Burberry hobo, Miu Miu mini bow bag, Miu Miu shopping tote.

So anyway, I’m not really in a writing mood yet, but I wanted to post some of the recent OOTDs I had with these handbags and some of the more recent clothing I’ve got, before I go back to being a Sunday slug.
