 [Makeup Review] Y.O.U Simplicity Collection

I can’t get enough with Y.O.U beauty products. If you still remember last month I’ve been obsessed with their Cloud Touch Fixing Tint, this month I’m blown with their Simplicity Collection.  I know I might be late to try on these series, but let’s dive in! 



These Simplicity Collection are hybrid makeup as their products infused with skincare ingredients such as Hymagic 4D Hyaluronic Acid, it’s the four types form of HA with different properties to target different layers of skin, to keep skin moisturized and hydrated as well as improved skin elasticity from within. Besides they also have Witch Hazel Extract and Peach Blossom Extract for the antioxidant and to deliver smooth and soft complexion.

The packaging itself are dominated with a touch of pink. Simple yet feminine.


Simplicity Perfect BB Cream


This BB Cream delivers semi matte finish and long lasting comfortable wear up to 8 hours. They have two shades Vanila and Honey, mine in shade Honey. The shade is a bit dark to my skin tone. 



The texture is slightly thick and the consistency is more like a foundation with medium coverage. However it’s easy to blend with fingers or beauty sponge but I prefer using beauty sponge to have smooth and flawless finish. 



Simplicity Flawless Compact Powder

This compact powder has smooth micro powder, lightweight, buildable and non cakey finish. It’s so cute for the little message marked on the powder. The compact powder has two shades and I’m in shade N407 - Neutral Sand.

Thanks to Witch Hazel Extract, as this powder is able to control the sebum around my T-zone and keep my skin moisturized during the day because of HA. I like to apply it using powder brush to have natural sheer coverage. But if you want to go extra coverage, you might use the puff provided. 

 

Simplicity Eyeshadow Quad

Among the Simplicity Collection, I can say this eyeshadow quad is my ultimate favorite. They are highly pigmented and non creasing. The downside only is they’re slightly fall out.

 


If you’re new in makeup especially in creating the eye looks, you can go grab this palette. These four dynamic shades (two matte finish and two glitters) are so versatile that suitable in any occasion. You can go bold in the evening by adding the glitters or go light with the basic color for day time. Mine in shade 03-Street.


Simplicity Love You Tint

This lip tint is created with Blueberry extract and 4D HA that gives long stain on the lips. It's a water based and lightweight formula with intense color that gives comfort wear. It leaves a little bit sticky in the beginning of application. 

The Love You Tint comes in four shades with red based dominated, I'm in shade R388-Cherry Red. The shade instantly brighten my makeup look. 

 

Another point to be highlighted is the elastic applicator. It gives an ease to draw the lips line if i wanted to have the full red lips looks.  


And that’s all my review for Y.O.U Beauty Simplicity Collection. I hope you all enjoy reading it. You can also get these products at their official store in e-commerce.

[Review] Y.O.U Beauty Cloud Touch Fixing Tint

Lately, I have been over obsessed with lip color called Lip Tint. It seems impossible for me to only have one lip tint. There's always a reason to get myself another one. It's happened when knowing Y.O.U Beauty came out for their lip products named Cloud Touch Fixing Tint

 

 

Before we talk further for the products, let's get to know a bit for its brand. Y.O.U Beauty is an Indonesia local brand under Hebe Beauty Group with their philosophy "Long-Lasting Beauty". The brand initially provide only for makeup, they then expanded the lines into skincare, body care and cosmetic accessories. Their presence also has been worldwide to Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and other markets across the world.


CLOUD TOUCH FIXING TINT


TEXTURE & FORMULA

This tint is created with water-in-oil formula, that's is why it feels glossy at first application. It has a lightweight texture and feels so soft like a cloud upon applying. I like how it glides easily on the lips and leaves a comfortable matte finish without drying my lips.

Another thing I like from this tint is, it also infused with skincare ingredients such as French Strawberry Leaf Extract, Ceramide and Hyaluronic Acid, wherein those are rich in antioxidant, help in preventing the lips from drying and also keep it nourished. 

 


PACKAGING

The packaging is pretty feminine, in dove soft pink bottle with a frost closure. The applicator is tapered at the tip which makes the application easy, especially when I want to cover my dark lips lines.


SHADES & LONGEVITY

There are 6 shades in total and I've got the shades #R667-Puff Sky and #R199-Airy Kiss. I'm in lobe with these two shades, they instantly give a vibrant looks to my overall makeup. Having said, this is buildable without feeling heavy.  


With the technology of Film Forming Agent, this tint promises to have long lasting stain and less transfer. Well, it is definitely there ! Once the tint is set, expect the very top layer might have transferred to masks, spoon or even water bottles. But once that's gone, there's no more transfer and the color lasts pretty much the entire day. I'm pretty shock that I didn't find myself reapply the tint after 8-hours of use. This is one of the best tint I have ever used.

RADIANCE UP! ANTIOXIDANT SERUM

This brightening serum enriched with Symwhite377, 5% Niacinamide, and Carnosine that work effectively in brighten dull skin, reduce dark spots appearance as well as hyper-pigmentation. It also has Korean Camellia Extract - high antioxidants to fight free radicals. 
 
Comes in white shimmery bottle packaging, the texture is slightly thick but the absorption is quite fast. I also enjoyed layered it with other serums.


 

SUNSCREEN TRIPLE UV ELIXIR

This is a Broad Spectrum sunscreen that contains Chemical and Mineral ingredient to give shield protection from UVA, UVB and helps in reducing the effects of blue light. 

It contains Allantoin, Niacinamide, Vitamin E and Centella Asiatica provide skin soothing, soften and moisture.

The texture feels creamy with a water-based formula, weightless and fast absorbs. There was a time I found it left white residue at the end of the day.

 

 

NOUTRIWEAR - AIRY FIT LOOSE POWDER

It is an skincare infused makeup loos powder. Formulated with Duo Extraordinary Plant Extract that acts as antioxidant to reduce the aging sign and nourished the skin. 
 
This powder has 3 shades and mine is in shade #W804-Natural Buff. The shade blends well to my medium skin tone. The powder particle feels so soft and light with a smooth finish. It is also completed with Soft Light-diffusing Powder to holds makeup in place and control sebum for 24 hours. 
 
 
 
GLAM FIX BEAUTY SPONGE PRECISE COMPLEXION
 
This egg beauty sponge has the smallest pore which is only < 0,1mikron so it won't absorbs the product. The sponge also feels so soft.
It can be used in dry or wet condition, it is based on the makeup you want to apply and the finish you want to achieve. 

 
 
I highly said to you guys to try on their products! You can easily get Y.O.U Beauty products at e-commerce of their official store.
 
 
Lastly, that's a wrap for my sharing of Y.O.U Beauty products for October edition. Hope you guys enjoy reading it and see you on the next post !

[Skincare Review] SULWHASOO FIRST CARE ACTIVATING SERUM

It has been quite long since the last time I posted about the beauty products that I used. Somehow, I miss to write and share with all my readers here. This time I'm going to share with you my experience in using one of Luxury Korean Skincare brand that already caught my heart since three years ago. It's Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum (FCAS) which has became one of their best selling products ever since.  


 

This is the pre-serum or booster serum that is designed to be used at the very first step of skincare after the cleansing step. It helps to prepare your skin, so your next skincare products will have work more optimal to your skin. 

 

 

FORMULA

It's formulated with JAUM Activator™ wherein the combination of White Lily, White Peony, Rehmania and Solomon's Seal and Lotus Flower, makes this pre-serum has a beneficial to strengthen your skin barrier. It also delivers radiance, hydration, healthy looking skin and works to improve the sign of aging. 


 

SCENT & TEXTURE

The texture is light and the consistency is quite liquid with an orange-brownish color. I'm surprised how fast this sinks into my skin. It leaves a natural glow non-sticky finish. What I enjoy the most every time using this product is the herbal scents provided, feels so calming.



Texture and color    
Look at that glowy finish

PACKAGING

The packaging is pretty simple, packed in a sleek opaque ceramic bottle. It comes with a pump dispenser with a touch of gold on the neck of the bottle. They are available in several sizes, mine is 60ml. 

 


 

FINAL IMPRESSION

At first, I will say, my skin loves this Sulwhasoo FCAS that much. I notice a lot differences whenever I use this at the very beginning of my skincare regime. It helps my other skincare products to have fast absorbing to skin. 

I'm using it twice a day, day and night right after cleansing. Two pumps of each use and I like to give a little massage to my face just because of its herbal scent which always remind me with the smell of spa treatment. 

I've been using it for almost two weeks for now and I do feel my skin smoother, look more radiant and healthy. I'm not sure about the anti aging effect as I believe it needs more time to process it, but by far I'm so happy with the results. The only claim that I don't get from this pre-serum is the hydration. But, that's not a big deal as I can have it from the hydration toner that I use after.


 

Should you also wanted to try this Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum, it is available online at their official store on e-commerce or you can also direct visit to their offline store. 

Tell me what I should share for my next post ! 😉

At first usage, I applied this serum that much and left stickiness on my skin. I have to wait a bit longer until it fully absorbs. I love this niacinamide serum, I notice it helps in improving my skin texture and diminishes acne scars. I always make sure to wear sunscreen if using this on day time, to protect my skin from the harmful sun rays, as it contains active ingredients.

I was so impressed by how it performs. It does what it claims. I can use it on day time or night time, which are both still comfortable. Layering up more to 5x at night for extra hydration, it doesn't feel heavy and leaves no sticky finish. I can say it's definitely a lightweight hydrating toner. My skin feels so plump, moist and dewy.
