BYS Pure Silk Serum Foundation + Foundation Adjusters


I was so excited to see that BYS Cosmetics have recently been accredited by PETA Australia as 100% Cruelty Free! An amazing step for the brand to make and I’m super excited to check out more of their products.

I received the BYS Pure Silk Serum Foundation (RRP $14.95) along with the Foundation Adjuster Lightener (RRP $14.95) and the Foundation Adjuster Darkener (RRP $14.95), so I thought I would test them out for you guys! These are all vegan friendly as well!

Shade Adjuster Drops

As we are now in Winter *sob*, I have only been using the Foundation Adjuster Lightener to slightly lighten the shade of Pure Silk Serum Foundation so far. It blends seamlessly into the product, and because it’s the same consistency I think that helps. If you are looking into adjustment drops, it would be best to match the brand, or at least foundation type. This product would be SO AMAZING for pale faced gals who struggle to find their perfect pale shade.

As for the Foundation Adjuster Darkener, I still tested it for consistency and was happy to see it was the same as the lightener, perfect for mixing to find your perfect shade. Having this on hand during the Summer months will be a lifesaver to make sure you don’t end up with that fantastic pale face when you have a fake tan on. It completely eliminates having to buy your Summer or Winter shades in your foundation of choice.


As for the Pure Silk Serum Foundation itself, I have only tried one other serum foundation and I found this one way better. While lightweight with buildable coverage, it isn’t as “liquid-y” as other the other serum foundation I’ve tried.

It comes in bottle, eye dropper style bottle, which I can foresee as difficult to get all the product out, which is common for glass bottle foundations. It has a satin finish, and I find that after wearing all day, it doesn’t cake up. I did find some creasing around the eye area throughout the day. However, I think this is easily combatted by using an eye primer or concealer that doesn’t crease, something I don’t often do for everyday wear.

I’m super keen to try out a high end serum foundation to compare it to. If you are in love with a serum foundation currently be sure to let me know!

Have you jumped on the serum foundation trend yet?

  • I love that you can use these to adjust your foundation! If only I knew about these when I was younger – I was always buying the wrong shade haha

      Haha me too! I always had shades too light for me because I was so afraid of looking too orange!

  • I still haven’t tried mine yet but I’m sure it will be great for my dry skin!!! <3


    • Kate Flint

      I have a bit of dry skin on my forehead (combo skin) and it seems to work really well 🙂

  • I’ve had my eye on this one since it came out because of its price. I think il definitely have to try it x

    • Kate Flint

      It’s such a bargain, definitely worth it.

  • Laura Tough

    I love that they now have adjuster drops, I think they are fabulous for the changing seasons, means you don’t have to buy multiple different shades! I have never tried BYS, but now I kind of want to.

      I used to use BYS years ago and wasn’t a huge fan, but they’ve REALLY stepped up their game the last few years.

  • What a great idea to have the adjuster drops! I swear I go through 4 foundation shades a year!! I haven’t tried a serum foundation before. It sounds interesting. Keen to see what high end serum foundation you find x

      I’m thinking the Cover FX drops will be a good high end serum foundation to try! 🙂

  • These sound amazing! I love that they look so thin and light weight. I’ll have to check them out x

    • Kate Flint

      They feel amazing on the skin, but still offer a bit of coverage which is nice 🙂 Hope you like them as much as me!

    I’ve tried the Innoxa Hydro Boost serum foundation and liked that one, so I’d be keen to compare it to this one. Thanks for the post! I was looking out for these.

    • Kate Flint

      I’ll have to check that one out!

  • I’ve seen these floating around Instagram and the foundation had me very intrigued. BYS have really upped their game haven’t they. I’ll have to hunt it down.

      They really have! I remember they used to be pretty lack lustre but they are smashing it recently. x

  • It’s sooo great that BYS have decided to make the cruelty free change and I’m keen to get my hands on these! BTW Australis and NYX have launched serum consistency foundations if you’re looking for some inso

      Thanks Rochelle! The other serum foundation I tried was actually the Australis one, but I wasn’t really a fan. Have you tried either of them? xx

  • Omg such a good idea!! I wore my tan foundation today and I definitely needed these!

      I can’t wait to use the dark foundation adjusted when I am a little more brown in the summer (fake tan of course) 😉

  • Bernadette

    This foundation sounds interesting as well as the shade adjusters! Seeing as the bran is affordable as well I definitely have to check them out!

    • Kate Flint

      So affordable and great quality, can’t go wrong! x

  • The foundation adjusters look great! So good that this kind of product is available at the chemist and is so affordable. Might need to pick them up 🙂
