Cons of Shiseido The Makeup Dual Balancing Foundation
1) Expensive (But can last a long time, so it’s worth it)
2) Needs a moisturizer beneath otherwise it doesn’t blend too well.
Would I buy Shiseido The Makeup Dual Balancing Foundation again? Yes, I love the natural look it gives…..and evens the light and red areas of the face.
Eye Makeup : On Eyelid its MAC Brown Script, On Brows its MAC Espresso and as Highlighter, its skin-colored eye shadow from Wet n Wild palette 246 Greed Gourmandise, Eyeliner is Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (My fav.), Mascara is Avon Super Shock Mascara.
Lip Makeup: – Avon Malted Mineral M501 (I love this nude-brown colored lipstick) and Maybelline Rum Raisin G300 (My another favorite in pink-mauve)
I have applied no blush or bronzer to show the blended effect of foundation.
This is my everyday look that I wear to work.
Any comments would be welcome!!!! (I can see from photo, I need to blend the highlighter more. Camera catches all flaws!!!!)
Thanks for reading this. 🙂

Thank you!!!!! :thanks: I had to try so many shades before deciding on a right one! 🙂
Picking up right shade of the foundation is so difficult no but once you find your right shade, it feels such an achievement. 😀
True…the makeup consultant was so close to give up on me….. she must hit herself with this everyday at home….:hammer:…..

About the foundation……………it does not look cakey at all and with staying power of 7 hours, I want it…………. :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2:
Thank you!!! :blush: It certainly feels good, when you get a right foundation. Someone had told me that Shiseido makes lot of shades that’s for Asian skin tone….I recently went to MAC store and tried NC 30 in Studio Fix Fluid….that is next one on my list. In the store, the color looked like exact match. But my Shiseido is going to last me another 4-5 months….or may be even more……by the times Summer will roll around, perfect time to test a new foundation.
Jomol, you are an expert when it comes to foreheads..I remember u told me that my forehead is like your sister’s 🙂
You’re looking all fresh and natural Nia. Love the lip color :rose:
Yes I was happy…..actually here in US, we all were stuck in homes for 4 days at a stretch due to bone chilling cold weather and icy roads…..I was like I really want to do this review and I did!!! :jiggy1: :jiggy2:
