Shu Uemura UV Liquid Foundation
I live in a country where it is above 30 degrees for more than 10 months of the year, because of which my makeup- especially my foundation itself- gets washed away in no time because of sweat. Ask me just how annoying it can get when you try to apply makeup and, the moment you step out of house, all your face makeup fades away. So when I stumbled upon this foundation by luck, I decided to try it main reason being it was from Shu Uemura & I had never tried any of their products. Plus since Shu Uemura was a Japanese company I was sure their ingredients would be much different compared with other companies and would definitely react in a different way (whether in a good or bad way was still to be contemplated).
Shade: 754 (kind of a medium shade good for wheatish skin tones)
What Shu Uemura says about their UV Liquid Foundation?
A light fluid foundation strong to sweat and sebum gives lasting effects while giving skin a natural finish. Protects skin from harmful UV rays with SPF 25 /UVA Protection during the day while giving sufficient coverage to hide spots and freckles.
My Experience with Shu Uemura UV Liquid Foundation
I have used quite a lot of foundations with SPF but have suffered from the same issues of foundation getting bleached out from my face. I was pleasantly surprised after using this particular foundation. The very first day when I used it, it started raining outside. For sure I knew this wouldn’t last even a bit. But I got the shock of my life seeing it intact after reaching home. All thanks to its unique ingredients:-
:pill: Neo Silicone Coated Powder which is strong to sweat & sebum and prevents foundation from turning dull.
:pill: Matte Type Flat Smooth Powder which helps with easy spreading giving skin a natural finish.
:pill: Carrot Root Extract which acts as a moisturizing agent keeping the skin soft.
What I like about Shu Uemura UV Liquid Foundation?
:yes: Gives a very smooth silky finish
:yes: Water Resistant
:yes: Gives a natural matte look along with high coverage
:yes: Contains SPF25. No need to apply sunscreen while using this as it works much like a tinted sunscreen; mixture of both sunscreen and a foundation.
:yes: No white cast
:yes: Has a wide range of 17 shades in total from darkest to lightest.
:yes: Comes with a sponge and an instruction manual
What I don’t like about Shu Uemura UV Liquid Foundation?
:no: It comes in a tube form because of which it gets so messy. I prefer pump bottle foundations any day because of their ease to use plus there is kind of less possibility to pump out more foundation. For this reason I end up wasting more foundation than required 🙁
:no: Unfortunately it is not that easily available either in India or other countries except Far East.
