[]Shiseido Maquillage Lighting White Powdery UV Foundation Review[]~~~

Hey all ~~~
Just wanted to do a review today. Bought this product: Shiseido Maquillage Lighting White Powdery UV Foundation with SPF 25 ++. Super long name. It is a powder foundation, designed for summer I think, It claims to create bright and pure white skin with continuous use. The powder contains whitening ingredients.

The website says:

A powdery foundation formulated with Glow All-over Powder that lights-up your skin to create a translucent, pure-white finish.
Absorbs only sebum to prevent makeup wearing-off.
Formulated with Pure White Essence* to nourish, smoothen and brighten your skin with continuous use.

* Formulated with moisturizing Pure White Essence
(Saxifraga sarmentosa extract, Zingiber aromaticus extract,
Sodium hyaluronate, Glycerin, Sodium magnesium silicate)
・Tested and proved to stay for 8 hours.
(Source: SHISEIDO. Effects vary between individuals.)


I got this foundation as soon as it came out, because The case look so pretty.. haha i'm a sucker for packaging. and also the foundation sounds amazing... I got it in the colour OC10, a neutral toned foundation suits my NC20 ish skin. I think i'm a bit lighter than NC20 right now as it is winter.


This is what the foundation looks like. It use to have a Maquillage logo on the powder foundation but I've been using it every day for about a month, so that logo is gone.
Lets start with my BARE FACE.... disgusting ... freckles, with large pores, and acne scars.
For reference I am about NC20, (a bit lighter now for winter). Combination dry skin in winter, combination oily in summer. oily T zone. all foundations slips off my face only estee lauder DWL and DW stays on during summer.
So now lets see the effect of this foundation There is no base applied. no primers no nothing. It covers the pores pretty well and some redness, but you can still see some freckles and acne scars. This foundation gives a natural look, not too MATTE, gives a bit of glow, especially after a couple hours it looks more natural. Freshly applied foundation may look a bit powdery if applied too much. I normally wear my Clinique city blocker as base if I am going to just wear powder foundations. It covers the pores first so the foundation goes on smoothly.
This is what the foundation looks like with flash. Honestly, it does give a white cast. I'm not sure if you can tell, but in photos it gives a pretty strong white cast. may be because of the SPF25PA++. But I like my foundations with SPF, atleast it protects my skin from harmful UV rays. Also please note that Especially with powder foundations and UV protection, you have to put enough of the product to form a layer to protect the skin. If the layer is too thin, the UV index is nowhere near SPF 25.

This foundation does not Oxidise through out the day. stays true to its colour. It doesn't look cakey and heavy if I put too much. It covers flaws but still letting your natural skin shine through. It can be used as a setting powder or foundation on its own depending on what you want, what you feel like.

The cons of this foundation is that, its oil absorbing powder is not 100%, by 4-5 hours I need to blot oil and for me by 7-8 hour time it's kind of disappeared. So I will need to reapply. I use this in the afternoon before I go out at night. also for touch ups. The foundation is quite pricey too. But a nice foundation to have. If you are on Budget, you can try the Cezanne powder foundations. They are really good too.

Any questions just leave them in comments below. hope every one had a great weekend.
Monday is tomorrow............ dread...........
