Shiseido Suncare SPF43 PA+++ (SP20):
I should have got the SP30, but SP20 is more golden, so i end up having another foundation in shade paler then my summer skin ewwwf! It has a light flourish scent which is slightly annoyed me. The texture is watery but dry ultra QUICK so it require quick blending. I can only apply it with sponge for that reason and no one way to look masking in a sporty wear i supposed! The coverage, SPF, oil control, waterproof and true matte finish are great for summer... however, i only used 1x for a day... (i MIGHT repurchase it)
this is a great foundation in that it's the only one i have found that actually stays put! when i wash my face at the end of the day, it actually appears on my oil of olay disposable washcloth! that's more than i can say for any other foundation i've ever tried! as others have said, they need to increase the color selection. i'm very pale and i wear the second to darkest color!
This is my HG liquid foundation! The packaging is great as it allows you to use as little or as much as you want each time. This stuff is highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. It does NOT slide into wrinkles or creases and really just sticks to your skin in a nice way. The only beef I have with it is I wish it was a bit luminizing as I am not a big matte finish fan. Overall though, this is the best foundation I have ever used.
I bought this product due to the sun protection and reviews on here. While it does provide great sunscreen, it just doesn't have enough coverage for me and doesn't keep my oil under control. I'm debating mixing this with my Estee Lauder so I can get my full coverage makeup along with sunscreen but not sure how that would work. Might put this up for swap.
this is a great product for summer because of its great staying power and the SPF! one downside is that there arent very many shades. the only tone that matched me was one shade too dark, so i can only use it during summer:(
Ok, so I put this on for the first time this morning, it's about 6 pm now and it still looks fresh! This is quite a feat for my oily skin, that also battled humididy and rain all day. This stuff really holds up, which means it will probably be a chore to take off tonight, but so worth it. The tradeoff for this is that it does catch on dry spots, and I have a few from using differin. This is lightweight, light to med coverage and feels comfortable. I have used high grade titanium dioxide sunscreens with no problem, but this can definently be issue for acne prone skin. I just cant get over how beautifully clean my skin looks now. I am usually mottled, oxided, and greasy by midday! I would definently recommed this wonderful foundation for oily to normal skin types!
This is so expensive! Costs as much as Lancome! I must admit, it is one of the best products that I've used in terms of oil control. Love the high SPF. It looks a little pastey on me, because of the limited colour range and the high coverage. However, if you manage to get a good colour match, it'll look great! Does not oxidise or rub off at all. I mix it with regular sunscreen to thin it out a little, but it still lasts a good 3 to 4 hours of outdoor sports.
Wow! I bought this today and it's amazing. I bought SP40 which is perfect for me, not too orange like many other foundations. I love that it has SPF in it and it's water resistant. This means being able to endure the 110 degree temperatures without my makeup sliding away. The coverage is medium but it's buildable which I love. Will definitely be repurchasing!
I am really happy with this product. Coverage is light to medium (depending how heavy you apply), but a little can go a long way. I tried this for a few days without using powder and my face felt it got a bit too oily throughout the day. Started using Origins All or Nothing Translucent Loose Powder, and the two together work fabulous. No shine and consistent coverage all day. Also, this makeup has not transferred and does not sweat off. Plus, with the added SPF, you can't go wrong.
My only complaints are that it is a little pricey at $30 and also requires you purchase their oil based face wash at approx $25 to be able to properly remove the makeup. However, the oil face remover (although it feels like smothering baby oil all over your face) washes out with absolutely no residue and feels good even on my acne prone skin.
