Product Review: BYS Automatic Eye Pencil in 04 Super Soft Black

Friday, July 12, 2013

     This product is an impulse buy but I have no regrets buying it because it was actually a good buy! I'm not a fan of black liners. I find the color too off because I look mataray (snobbish) from the black eyeliners that I've tried before. I'm not sure if that's only my perception when I apply black eyeliner on my eyelids but I always doubt when it's black. I always say to myself  that it's not for me. If there are two things that I regard as my weapon to look simply pretty, that probably the lipstick and eyeliner. I don't know why I got hooked with eyeliners lately. Maybe it's because I noticed my eyelids look different from each other and to mask that I need to apply eyeliners may it be brown-my fave or black. Okay, a NEW fave :)

     So in search of my HG black eyeliner, I secretly spying on three brands whenever I go window shopping at malls around my area. Every time I swatch a gel or pencil eyeliner, I always have doubts inside my head. Aside from the brand, I always check the price. As I've said on the the very first paragraph of this post, it's an impulse buy. It happened months ago when I dropped by at Watsons Sm Fairview just to replenish my stock of Purederm Makeup Remover Wipes. The SA approached me and said she wanted to try their eyeliner on my eyelids since I'm not wearing my fave Choco eyeliner from Virginia Olsen that day. I was convinced because I saw a lady who just bought this and purchased three different colors. Well, I should thank her if ever we'll cross our paths again because my impulse buy is really worth it!

This automatic wind up eyeliner pencil makes for easy and handy application. Black is the must have shade and with a slightly harder lead will create fine lines and definition.

I did a mistake as I lined the outer eyelid too thick, I used a makeup remover to remove the excess line.

 What I like:
  • Affordable.
  • The texture is a bit creamy.
  • Since this is automatic, no need to sharpen.
  • Color pay off is very good.
  • It's pigmented. 
  • Lasts up to 6 hours on my not so oily lids.
  • I can control the intensity of the lines that I'm doing on my eyelids.
  • Sealed upon purchase.
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the label.
  • Easily accessible.
What I don't like:
  • Smudges a bit but a good eye primer can prevent the liner from transferring.
  • A bit hard to remove even if I use my trusted makeup cleansing wipes. Needs an eye makeup remover to totally remove it from my eyelids.
Will I repurchase? Yes! I'm planning to purchase another color on my next visit at the BYS counter.

     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. I'm happy that I found an eyeliner that's cost effective. Now I appreciate my eyes whenever I'm using black eyeliner. It perfectly matches my dolly contact lens. With this eyeliner, I can create thick and thin lines depending on my mood. The eyeliner is sturdy, I never experienced any signs of brittleness that will result into breakage. But of course, use light hand strokes and don't over twist so that only a portion of the eyeliner will come out.

     Have you tried BYS Cosmetics? I have another product review coming up from this brand so watch out for it!

Good Times!~


  1. I have a skittish hand with liquid liners, so I prefer a pencil one. Problem naman with pencil is that it smudges easily. :( So I'm still confused which one I should really work on. But this looks like a good option!


  2. Is it in anyway tuggy? My Revlon colorstay is a pain to use.

  3. @Angel Diamante- same here :) If i use liquid eyeliner, I produce uneven lines. Haven't tried using pencil eyeliner or the kohl ones.

    @Rae- hello, it's not tuggy. I forgot to mention that on my post. thanks for asking :)

  4. Oh thank God for this product. I'm not really keen on using the brush thing on eyeliners because I always have smudges. I'm going to try this. Thanks for the review for this product! :D

  5. @Louise- try this dear, it's very easy to use and with little or no sudges at all kahit minsan napa nap time ako with this on my eyelids.

  6. Great tip and pointer for using the eye pencil. Applying eye makeup can be quite tricky and sometimes its not really about the method but of the product's quality as well. This product looks really promising. :)

  7. @Angela Ricardo- I agree with you! Sometimes the tricks can make a big difference!
