Review of Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation SPF35 by hera54
I use the translucent stick foundation, as a SUNBLOCK & PRIMER. I noticed that whenever I wear this underneath my powder, my makeup is noticeably fresher, matter and keeps my oily face at bay, pores look minimized/ difused.
(I imagine that this is what Benefit's Dr. Feelgood is supposed to be/ work like but does NOT) a balm/ primer/ barrier that keeps makeup fresh.
I apply a very thin layer of this translucent stick all over my face and then use a light dusting of Makeup Forever duo mat. I only blotted my face once after 10 hours of application, even then I still look pretty naturally mat and fresh.
NO OTHER product/ primer has kept my complexion this fresh and clean looking. I've tried Smashbox's primer, MAC, Urban Decay, Benefit....& nothing comes even close to this product's result. I went traveling to South East Asia & my makeup STAYS almost all day long!
I would definitely suggest removing your makeup with some sort of makeup remover though, to avoid possible skin breakouts. I usually remove my makeup with Kanebo's oil cleanser which works beautifully to remove this waterproof/sweatproof product.
