[REVIEW + SWATCH]: SIMPLYSITI GOLD EDITION 

Hello lovely people ! I'm back again to this blog after a quite long hiatus. To be honest, during self-quarantine for almost 3 months has brought me to laziness in writing. But yeah, staying at home is the least I can do in following the government's policy for minimizing the spreading of the virus. I do really hope the curve can flatten soon so we can go back doing our activities in normal way with no worry. Therefore, keep safe and healthy everyone! 

In this post I'll be sharing makeup products from the collection of SIMPLISITI GOLD EDITION. If you still remember, last year I actually already gave my first impression regarding these products which you can check here. So um yeah, it’s kind of my long overdue complete review ;p So, let's dig in more! 


As you might already know, SIMPLYSITI is Malaysian beauty brand which owned by Malaysian Singer Siti Nurhalizah. This time SIMPLYSITI presents the new makeup series in Gold Edition which consists of Cushion Foundation, Shading Blusher and Matte Lip Cream. This series is using soft-focus technology and speckles of gold dust. The production of these products are done in Korea, so you no need to doubt about their quality. Besides, all their products are Moslem friendly since it certified "Halal". I am so excited with the products as it's my first time trying and using makeup from Malaysian brand.  

GOLD EDITION CUSHION FOUNDATION


PACKAGING

The packaging on this series are dominated in black color with touch of gold which gives a simple yet elegant look in the same time on every pieces. This cushion already completed with micro-aerated puff, a damp sponge with easy absorption giving natural dabbing on skin. The puff has  two different colors on each side, black on top and light cream on the bottom. 


On the back of the packaging you can find the information of its shade, manufacturing date and expired date ( we all need to pay more attention to it).Weighted for 15 gram and retailed for IDR 324,900, this cushion foundation is non-refillable. Means, once you finished the product, you need to repurchase the whole package. Really hope in the future, SIMPLYSITI might consider to produce the refill packaging of this cushion. 


SWATCH, FORMULA, PIGMENTATION
Natural Beige GCF02 
After blend

This cushion foundation comes in 2 shades which are Light Beige GCF01 and Natural Beige GCF02. Mine is in shade GCF02 that suits best with my medium skin tone, not too light and not too dark. I think the shades are truly made for Asian skin tone. It has light texture, like I don't wear any base, with matte glow finisih. I love the natural glows come from my cheek eventho' i don't use any highlighter. Whenever I use this cushion, I like to use setting spray for finishing instead of loose powder. It gives me more natural looks. 

Their coverage is medium as they still can't full cover my blemishes on my cheek. Eventhough they're buildable, I personally not so comfortable wearing too much base as it might look cakey on the area that I want to cover. Because you do know, I want my make up to look as natural as it could. Hence, I prefer to use concealer to help them covered. This cushion already has SPF 25 to care and protect your skin from harmful UV rays. However, if you spend more time outdoor, please do keep use sunscreen underneath.

GOLD EDITION SHADING BLUSHER


PACKAGING

Housed in black glossy square with gold strip for the brand name, this Shading Blusher is so handy. It can fit into your pocket jeans and you're ready to bring this mini palette wherever you go. It already completes with mini brush for the applicator and mirror inside as wide as the size of the packaging. 

Just the same with the Cushion Foundation, the information of the shades as well as production and expired date are rpinted on the back of the packaging. Basically, you can find those information on their gold cardbox. But, i think it's a good things to also put the expiry date on the palette. Because we usually throw away the cardbox right after get the new product and have no idea the expiry date of the product and keep using it.  

SWATCH, FORMULA, PIGMENTATION
GSB01

Only available in 1 shade, GSB01, this Shading Blusher consists of a pink blush and a medium brown bronzer. They're intensely pigmented, blend easily but too powdery. I like the blush as it instantly gives a fresh and radiant look to my day-to-day make up. While for the bronzer, i don't really use it for the contour, instead i use it as eyeshadow becuse the shade is just so natural yet give my eyes look alive. Weighted for 10 gram and priced for IDR 219,900, these shade are for any skin tone.

INGREDIENTS


GOLD EDITION MATTE LIP CREAM

PACKAGING

The packaging of this Lip Cream is so simple in transparent plastic tube with black cap and precise tip applicator (helps avoid bleeding). And since it's the gold edition, they also put gold sticker on the packaging but it scratches and fades out easily. This small packaging Lip Cream retailed for IDR 187,900.  
  
SWATCH, FORMULA, PIGMENTATION
Primrose Pink GML03
My daily look would not go complete without a touch of lip color. This Lip Cream comes in 5 shades and mine is Primrose Pink GML03. I'm in love with the shade! It's a perfect soft pink that suit for my simple natural everyday look. Formulated with bees wax, this lip cream glides smoothly on my lips. It's pigmented, matte finish and a bit sticky. Somehow, i feel it's too dry eventhough they put Vitamin E as one of the ingredient. It's not longwear, as i need to reapply them after my meal. But still ok.

FINAL VERDICT 
Final look using Simplysiti Gold Edition

I never get bored trying and playing with makeup, because it's something can bring me happiness.  I can create the look that I wanted based on my mood that time. And as for daily makeup, I like this to be practical and simple, since i most of the time being rush every morning to office. I personally love these Gold Edition except for the Matte Lip Cream, as it's too dry for my lips and too sticky. But, the Cushion Foundation and Blusher Shading has stolen my heart, their formulas suit for my dry skin and the finish look given. Not to forget to mention, these 3 products are travel friendly that you only need small pouch to carry them all.  



Eventhough we all have to stay at home and you really want to try this SIMPLYSITI Gold Edition products, worry not because you can find them online on their official webstore or market place such as Shopee and Tokopedia. So, that's all for my full review for SIMPLYSITI products, hope you like it and see you on the next post.
