As the summer season intensifies, the search for the next beauty buddy to brave those scorching sunbeams reaches critical levels. Who says you can’t have fun in the sun while staying flawless? With makeup products doubling as SPF and skin protectors, there’s no better time to explore practicality in beauty products. 

With new releases hitting the market, we’re curious to see if they live up to their promises of providing both sun protection and flawless coverage. This time, we decided to don our sunscreen capes and give the BYS Tinted Sun Cushion a whirl, all in the name of science (and fabulousness, of course). After putting the product through its paces at the NYLON Manila Hot Tropic, here’s our review detailing whether the BYS Tinted Sun Cushion truly delivers on its claims.

Application and Packaging

The BYS Tinted Sun Cushion comes in sleek packaging, immediately setting the tone for practical beauty in your pocket. Its compact design is a godsend for the go-getters, ensuring we stay chic and protected no matter where the day takes us. Upon cracking it open, we were greeted by the cushion’s texture,  promising a silky-smooth application.

In comparison to its cushion counterparts that tend to be matte and weighty, this product surprises with its moisture-rich formula And it doesn’t stop there. It leaves behind a refined, semi-glow finish that hugs the skin like a dream, granting a natural radiance and a blissful, cooling sensation—summer’s ultimate treat.

Calling for Coverage

When it came to coverage, the tinted cushion exceeded our wildest dreams. It flawlessly smoothed out our skin tone, effortlessly camouflaging those minor blemishes, all without weighing us down or feeling like a layer of cake. Its feather-light formula allowed our skin to breathe, making it a top contender for everyday wear, even under the sun.

With summer in full swing and everyone chasing those golden glows, we grabbed three shades (light, medium, and dark) that perfectly matched our skin tones.

Sun Protection and Skin TLC

One of the shining stars of the BYS Tinted Sun Cushion is its SPF protection, boasting a whopping SPF 50+ PA+++. It’s not just about sun defense; it’s buildable and breathable for easy, breezy application. Packed with skin-loving goodies like White Flower Complex, Triple Hyaluronic Acid Complex, and the anti-aging Niacinamide and Adenosine, it’s like a spa day in a compact.

We tested this product during extended periods under the sun, and it served remarkably well. But hey, even superheroes need backup, so don’t forget to layer on some sunscreen for that extra shield against UV rays.

Wearability and Longevity

Another aspect we put to the test was the endurance of the BYS Tinted Sun Cushion. Even in the scorching heat, this baby held its ground for hours, with no fading or melting in sight. Talk about staying power!

And let’s talk wearability. With its customizable coverage, we were able to adjust the intensity based on our preferences, making it versatile for various occasions. Whether you’re going for that effortless daytime glow or glamming it up for a soirée, this cushion has your back.

Pro tip: Blot throughout the day and resist the urge to overdo it with touch-ups—no one wants a cakey face before sundown, right?

Final Verdict: Does It Deliver?

After extensive testing in the summer heat, we can confidently say that the BYS Tinted Sun Cushion lives up to its promises. It provides reliable sun protection, impeccable coverage, and long-lasting wearability, making it a standout choice for anyone seeking a multifunctional beauty product for sunny days.

Whether you’re lounging at the beach or running errands under the sun, coming in at an affordable price of ₱999, it’s safe to say that it’s a must-have makeup product for this season.
