Fabulous in a Flash ft. YSL

I was recently sent samples of some beautiful YSL products so I thought, what better way to feature them all than with a Fabulous in a Flash post?  We'll be focusing on natural skin, eyes and lips... no eyeshadow today!  Just a simple, feminine look to help you look fresh, awake and of course, fabulous.

To help your skin look its best in the morning, always hydrate at night!  I have been using the YSL Or Rouge Eye Cream at night because this formula is very rich.  If you have dry skin, this might be perfect for you during the day, but since my skin is oily, nighttime works better for me.  In the morning when it's time to get ready, I would cleanse and begin my routine with YSL's Or Rouge Serum.  This serum, along with the eye cream, uses the power of the saffron flower to revitalize skin and provide multitude of anti-aging benefits.  These benefits include improving skin's tone and elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.  I then applied my YSL Touche Eclat primer (not pictured) for a smooth canvas for my foundation.  I used a sample of YSL's Youth Liberator Serum Foundation for a light, natural look.  Although this foundation is advertised as medium/full coverage, I found it to be at most, medium coverage.  After application I could still see small blemishes and a few other areas with discoloration.  If you have areas like this you'd like to cover, you may find you need an additional concealer as well.  The formula of this foundation is incredibly smooth and hydrating.  It applies effortlessly on the skin, it was so easy to blend!  Since my skin is oily, I did set it with powder, but this is personal preference.  

ysl babydoll mascara - the beauty puff

After our complexion it's time for the simple, finishing touches.  I've really been loving the YSL Babydoll mascara.  Though my favorite wands have bristle brushes, this rubber brush has no big gaps so it reaches as many lashes as possible.  Application was smooth with no clumping at all.  That certainly saves some time!  The concept behind the "babydoll" name is to give you a wide, awake look with defined lashes.  I appreciate any product that helps me look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the morning!  This mascara held a curl well and didn't smudge throughout the day either.  I'm a fan!

ysl tint-in-oil - the beauty puff

Our last step is a polished pout.  To be Fabulous in a Flash, I don't fuss with lip liners or products I have to be particularly precise with.  A simple gloss with a hint of color will do.  YSL's Volupte Tint-in-Oil is a unique formulation to help achieve this simple look.  This gloss has a stain suspended in it so you get the beautiful hint of color with the shine of a gloss.  Even after swatching this product, I was left with a bit of a light pink stain on my hand.  I like the idea of color being left behind even if the gloss wears off a bit.  It's a very smooth, moisturizing gloss that hydrates with four essential oils.  I think this is my favorite of these products!
