Review of Shiseido Radiant lifting foundation by Sassyrred
After reading the last review I remembered that I hadn't reviewed this yet. I love foundations & mascaras so always keeping my eyes and ears open for the newbies! I bought it without any reviews to read, which is usually one of my requirements these days. I got a sample, another requirement of mine with foundations.I had been sampling so many out there and not really loving them. I had recently purchased Hourglasses TM but still didn't love it.It is a TM so a bit under in the coverage department and not as beautiful a finish as Shiseido. HG is also over priced especially since I don't "love" it. Then again it is over priced anyway.
I really liked this foundation from the first day and bought a full bottle. This is not for oily or hydrated skin, my skin is thin, dry-dehydrated. As the name states, it gives me a radiant finish (light-medium coverage) which I love. It lasts all day on me and I rarely use powder. I have quite a few powders, but they never look "great" on my skin & it always covers up the "radiant" look I want so badly.(radiant not so much dewy) I sometimes use powder around my face but never under my eyes or on "cheeks". The price isn't great but not the most expensive one I have ever owned. I went to Colorado for business recently, and it was cold/dry but this looked great on me.
I will definitely re-purchase and currently this is my #1 foundation. I miss the old foundation from Smashbox that was oil-free but a beautiful finish on my dry skin.I think it was named "Seamless", and if it was still produced I might be using it, but Shiseido is my go-to foundation for now, with Hourglass TM as "at-home" work days. I may also re-purchase Maybelline Fit Me, for stay at home days, due to HG $$$. I am currently researching drugstore, (work at home days), foundations. I recently threw away WnW coverall, no moisture for my skin.
