Testing out new beauty brands is one of my favorite parts of my job. I try out new products constantly and many don’t make the cut so never get shared with my audience but every once in a while a new brand comes across my dresser that really impresses me. The latest brand to do so is Lys Beauty.
Lys Beauty Review
Lys Beauty was started by makeup artist turned founder Tisha Thompson. She set out to develop a clean beauty brand that was uniquely catered to all skin types, textures and tones, while also addressing common skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, dark spots and sensitive skin.
Lys Beauty aims to have a skin-first approach to the formulas they develop and also has focused on people of color to fill gaps in the market as it relates to performance, shade offerings, undertones and clean formulations.
The brand is really well priced with everything being under $25 and I think there are some really stellar products from the brand. Today in my latest beauty review I’m sharing my favorite products from the line.
This is a great high pigment, ultra-creamy blush. It blends out seamlessly onto the skin for a natural looking flush with staying power.
Available in six shades. I have shade Self Love and already can’t wait to pick up shade Humble.
This mascara is a good affordable option if you like a fluffy-looking lash. I personally prefer more volume and more pigment when it comes to my mascara (which is why I can’t quit the Stila HUGE mascara) so I wouldn’t repurchase this.
This foundation is like a true filter for your face. It’s got a serum-like texture that effortlessly melts into the skin. I was amazed at how well it concealed redness, blemishes and dark spots and loved the buildable light-medium coverage. My skin looks instantly better upon application. Radiant, glowy and not overly matte or overly dewy.
The forum has nourishing ingredients like Ashwagandha, Hyaluronic Acid, Turmeric and Avocado Oil so skin feels better with wear.
Available in 35 shades and I wear shade LP4.
Similar to the foundation, this concealer is so, so good. It’s got an amazing texture that is oh so creamy and therefore it blends out to conceal dark circles, blemishes and dark spots almost too easily. The vegan formula was designed to be buildable and I found it really has the best skin-like finish without any caking. I love, love, love this concealer.
Available in 25 shades and I wear shade LP4.
Talc-free and finely milled in texture, the LYS Beauty Triple Fix Translucent Pressed Setting Powder is an everyday powder that settles into pores without accentuating texture or diminishing your skin, creating that just-applied look without any white cast or flashback. I personally reach for loose-powders more but I think this is a good one for mid-day touch ups.
Available in six shades. I have the translucent.
This is a high coverage lipstick in a super purse friendly package. It was designed to nourish with Chia Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, and Maxi Lip but I did find it a bit drying and the shade I selected wasn’t my fav so I haven’t been reaching for this that much.
Available in six shades. I have shade Sincere.
This pigmented lip liner is perfect and works just as well as liners double the price. It doesn’t try out lips, goes on super smoothly thanks to the inclusion of Castor Oil, Hyaluronic Acid and Candelilla and I really liked the color payoff.
Available in six shades and I have shade Romantic.
I love this really blendable liquid highlighter that adds just the right touch of glow. The vegan formula has Mango Fruit Extract and Hyaluronic Acid to revitalize dull, dehydrated skin with intensive, long-lasting hydration. It was designed specifically for people with oily, textured skin so fear not if you struggle with highlighters at times.
Available in three glowy shades.
This oh-so-buttery bronzer stick glides on really beautifully blends out. You can use it to contour and define or just get a healthy glow in the places the sun would naturally hit. It has skincare ingredients in it so it feels lightweight and doesn’t cake.
Available in five shades. I took the lightest.
This lip oil didn’t do anything for me. It didn’t feel special – rather very similar to other lip oils I’ve tried in the past. I think the best way to use it would be as a topper to a more pigmented lip color vs. on its own.
If you like a primer that feels like it will grip to your skin – similar to the way the viral MILK Hydro-Grip Primer does – you’ll love this. It minimizes pores and I found it didn’t feel sticky at all. Rather it made my skin feel very ready for makeup.
. . .
Overall, I think there are some major wins from this line and I have been using the concealer, the foundation, the blush and the lip liner regularly since getting the products.
My one main gripe with the brand? The triangle shape of the bronzer, blush and powder are really inconvenient to store and travel with so I actually wish they were smaller. And the foundation is also too big and bulky to actually take with you. I’m hopeful the brand will introduce minis / travel size soon so I can take my favorites with me when I’m on the go!
