Shiseido: The Makeup Stick Foundation Review
Hi everyone, So I’m back with my second review 😀 yayy!! I am actually quite enjoying this. I spend hours reading reviews and looking for swatches now before I buy any product! It is becoming an addiction. My shopping list grows everyday. No matter how much I buy it’s never enough!! 😀 😀
So anyways I was reading many reviews on foundations these days and that was because I have oily/combination skin and it is very acne prone. I remember I used to have breakouts after using any kind of foundation, no matter what brand it was!!
Finally it all came to rest when one of my friend applied this Shiseido makeup stick foundation on my face one day. That was the day when I actually started using and liking makeup! So my interest with makeup started with this product 😀 and I’ve been using it for the last 2-3yrs..!!
Now after using the Shiseido foundation stick for so long, I was just wondering if anything else would work for me. I bought the Maxfactor natural minerals foundation. I got the wrong colour. And then I decided to just chuck it. I love my Shiseido stick! Why even bother looking for something else? and then I decided to write a review on it 🙂
So here is what Shiseido Makeup Stick Foundation claims:

This Shiseido makeup stick foundation comes in 10g tube and is very handy to carry, just like a lipstick.I completely adore the packaging!!
As soon as you remove the cap, .you cn twist out the foundation easily.It has been my HG foundation since the past few yrs!! 😀 🙂
Pros of Shiseido Makeup Stick Foundation
- The packaging is super cute
- As soon as I open it, I love the fragrance. Not a very strong one though, it is just a sweet fragrance. It gives a very fresh feeling on application 🙂
- Very easy to apply. All i have to do is to just apply streaks in different areas of my face and then blend it.
- It’s very easily blended; I use my fingers but you can use a sponge if u want. I’ve tried that too.
Well so here I’m ending my second post, I hope it proves helpful. I totally love this product and I wish it’s never discontinued!
– It never looks unnatural or cakey…it gives my skin a very smooth finish and a beautiful glow 🙂
– I’ve never had any breakout with it
– It’s creamy, and although it is meant for normal to dry skin, it works well for me; maybe because I don’t use my moisturiser beneath it.
– It gives me medium coverage. I don’t like very high coverage as it is. I feel it looks a little artificial.
– It’s coverage is pretty buildable. If you like high coverage you just need to add on a little more strokes and you’re done! 🙂
– It stays for a long time. I’ve worn it for 8 hrs and it didn’t fade and it didn’t even turn my skin oily or anything
– It lasts a long long time, I don’t apply foundation everyday and its last me 3yrs. But i think it’ll last around an year if used regularly.
– It’s available in many colours and I got one which totally matches my skin tone. I have it in natural fair ochre.
– It gives me a dewy look. I don’t really like matte finish.
Cons of Shiseido Makeup Stick Foundation
– I won’t recommend Shiseido Makeup Stick Foundation to people with very oily skin. It has worked for me but my skin isn’t super oily, so it may not work for u
– The price- i really don’t remember it well but it was around Rs3000/- that time. Don’t know what it costs right now (I don’t really have a problem with that because it lasts superlong- it’s more of an investment plus it never caused any break outs for me)
– Not all colours are available in India.
