Fake Your Bare Face with Sugao! 素颜秘籍大公开 Sugao Air Fit CC Cream | Sugao Cheek and Lip | Sugao Lip Tint Review

I used to be very confident with my bare face that it doesn't bother me much to leave home without putting any make up on. Gone are those good old days when my face is free from dark eye circles, dark spots, pigmentation and fine lines, 青春真的就是本钱!As I age, I can't help but start to get more self-conscious on my appearance. I mean, nobody wants to look haggard and tired, especially when she is at work, am I right? We want to look fresh and flawless and that's why, we put on make up! "No make up" look is the trend now where Korean and Japanese girls create a natural bare-face-alike look by using minimal make up products. No exaggerating colours, no dramatic eyeliners, no fake lashes that curl at unnatural angle. "No make up" look is so popular that many brands have come out with their very own naked or bare face range, including Rhoto-Mentholatum. Rhoto-Mentholatum Malaysia has launched its latest brand - Sugao, a Japanese makeup series that draws on naturality, sheer lightness and softness in achieving natural beauty. Sugao(素颜)is a Japanese word that denotes bare and natural face, offers young women a soft, tender and light makeup that gives a natural “transparent feeling”.

A Japanese based makeup line that exudes an airy, natural, carefree and Asian character, Sugao aims not to only give skin’s natural beauty a boost, but it also hopes to unleash the vibrant and energetic side of each female individual that mirrors the brand’s image, which is young, simple and modern.

The packaging of Sugao's products is simple and chic, the Millennials will definitely love their minimal design! I tried to create Sugao look (bare face look) by using 3 Sugao's products, which are Sugao Air Fit CC Cream, Sugao Cheek & Lip and Sugao Lip Tint

I fell in love with the cute handwriting printed on the CC cream at the very first sight, so adorable! I switch between BB cushion, BB cream and CC cream for my daily make up, depending on the final look that I want to create that day. I always go for BB cream and CC cream when I know that I wouldn't have the luxury time to touch up at the afternoon, say when I need to work at construction site. (Don't even expect a mirror or hand soap at a construction site, all you get is a portable toilet!) With the help of a good make up setting spray or loose powder, BB/CC cream is more long lasting on me as compared to a cushion. It has been a while since the last time I tried a new BB/CC cream, so I'm really happy to get my hands on Sugao Air Fit CC Cream!

The Air Fit CC Cream that I own is in Pink Bright #01 Pure Natural shade that produces a soft-focus effect upon application to give skin a pinkish tone. In fact, I personally prefer pinkish skin tone over the pale and ivory skin tone as pinkish shade can give me a healthy and radiant glow, it's more natural too. Don't forget that we want to fake a bare face now, looking naturally flawless is very important! On the other hand, Sugao Air Fit CC Cream contains SPF23 PA+++, it is free from fragrance and alcohol too.


Formulated with Rohto Patented Air-Fit Technology, the Sugao CC Cream comes in a light soufflé-like texture. I was a bit skeptical when I read the product description because a CC cream with souffle-like texture? To be brutally frank, I don't really believe it. I squeezed some of the CC cream on my hand and my mind was blown. Oh my god girls they didn't lie, the CC cream is exactly so light, fluffy and airy that I couldn't find any better description other than soufflé, it looks like soufflé and feels like soufflé! 


I spread the CC cream out and was amazed, again. Its fluffy and airy texture makes it incredibly easy and smooth to spread, just like your butter spread! I noticed some subtle and soft shimmer in the CC cream and that totally piqued my interest. I read the product description again and realized that it's the colour-correct powder which diffuses light and creates a soft-focus effect to blur visible pores, fine lines and rough skin. I was really excited to try this unique CC cream on my skin, it does look like something different from what I have tried before. 


Without the assistance of any make up brush, puff or sponge, I applied Sugao Air Fit CC Cream by using fingertips and here is the final look - clean, fresh and looking natural, I like it! Contrary to any other CC Cream, this Air-Fit designed CC Cream covers pores and uneven skin softly with only a thin layer of 0.01mm. It has a medium coverage and I actually don't mind to show some of my birthmark and dark spots because after all, we want to fake a bare face here. Don't tell me that your bare face is flawless because that's impossible! I love how the CC cream leaves an airy finish on my skin, it is a whole new experience to me as it's different from the matte/semi-matte finish that other BB/CC cream and cushion can give. It feels so...breathable. Another highlight is the unique color-correct powder that I have just mentioned, I can't stop adoring the soft and subtle glow it gives, too pretty! The Pink Bright shade complements my original skin tone so well that it brightens my skin in a natural way, people might just think that I didn't put on any make up, mission accomplished yeay!

Okay we are done with the face canvas now, let's proceed to the next important step of a "no make up" look - the blusher. Similar to Sugao Air Fit CC Cream, Sugao Cheek & Lip comes in light, fluffy soufflé-like texture that melts onto skin for a soft flush of colour.

Look! It looks like a mini pot of cream based dessert, so fluffy and creamy! Available in 3 colours, which are Natural Red, Active Orange & Brilliant Pink respectively, this 2-in-1 hybrid formula can be applied on the cheeks as well as on the lip. The pot I have here is of shade Natural Red.

It is formulated with pink bright changeable powder to create a natural rosy cheek and bright looking lip. All you need is just to scoop an adequate amount of the mousse using your fingers and gently touch on the cheeks before applying in a circular motion to blend.

Swatches

Sugao Cheek & Lip might look very pigmented in the pot but when swatched, it reveals a beautiful and sheer shade of red. 



Sugao Lip & Cheek can be blended easily by just using fingertips. I applied it on my cheek only and I will definitely try it on my lips very soon. The shade of Natural Red is a versatile classic red that is great for work and casual night out. I can see myself wearing this on a daily basis, I love the natural yet energetic look!

I love lip tint for its awesome long lasting power. I have tried a few lip tints from Korean brands but never one from Japan. Available in 3 different colours, namely Juicy Red, Sweet Pink and Apricot Pink, Sugao Lip Tint comes in water-like texture that provides a light, comfortable and weightless feel on lips.

As you can see, the lip tint is really watery!

Thanks to its watery and non-sticky formula, it's extraordinarily easy to glide Sugao Lip Tint on your lips. The lip tint is quite wet when it is freshly applied, but don't worry, it dries out pretty fast, leaving behind a matte and shine-free finish. I took lunch and had some goreng pisang with my lip tint on and I'm pleased to inform that Sugao Lip Tint managed to stay on lips without smudging. I was surprised that the lip colour is not even faded by a little after I had a feast of greasy fried chicken and mee siam, that's impressive! Despite of its amazing long lasting power and smudge-proof properties, Sugao Lip Tint is not drying at all and it doesn't accentuate fine lines on my lips. 

Beauty Tips: For a more glossy finish, apply a thin layer of lip gloss on top after the lip tint is completely dry.


In brief, I find Sugao offers affordable and idiot-proof make up products, they're especially suitable for make up newbies. Their products are relatively easy to use and provide promising bare face effects. The Sugao makeup series is now available at selected Watsons outlets, you can get them from Watson online store too! I'm going to dash to my nearest Watson outlet to check on Sugao Chiffon Powder which I have not tried, you should check them out too!

    I haven't used the blush and the gloss (because they haven't been photographed yet, heh) but the CC cream has become a staple ever since it arrived :)
