REVIEW: SHU UEMURA SKIN:FIT FOUNDATION

Malaysia's weather is hot and humid all year long, but it's getting so much more unbearable than ever. Don't y'all think so? The sweltering heat and abominable humidity are just one long beauty disaster. Well, if you're a girl who puts on makeup whenever you go out, you will definitely understand my pain because during the hotter days...

...your makeup tend to melt like ice-cream by midday. Boy - don't we all know nothing can be worse than having your makeup melt all over your face! Imagine the gruesome picture when your foundation melts and drips from your forehead to your cheeks, and finally to your neck as you sweat..

Yes, the freaking milky-beige colour. EW, STOP IT ALREADY.

By the way, if you find yourself finishing your blotting sheets faster than your Skittles during the hot days, you might need to consider changing your current foundation.

Put those frowns away, ladies, for Shu Uemura's skin:fit foundation is here to our rescue! Now, everyone is able to stay fresh-faced even when the temperature rises!

The Shu Uemura's skin:fit foundation promises three things:
1) Lightweight fit
2) Breathable coverage
3) A fresh complexion which lasts up to 12 hours

But does the skin:fit foundation walk the talk?
Read on to find out about the answer!

What sets this foundation apart from the others is its oil-free, bi-phase formula.


It actually looks like the picture above before shaking. The layer above (which appears transparent) is actually the cosmetic water, which contains mint and pomegranate extract; whereas the layer below consists of three types of powder: airlicium, perlite and soft focus powder.

All these ingredients aren't mixed together just for the fun, of course. The mint and pomegranate extract play a role in refreshing and conditioning your skin while the triple-powder complex helps in sweat and sebum absorption, giving a soft focus effect. Hence, this foundation is born to beat the summer heat for you!!

Besides its special formula, this foundation also comes with a dual-sided pentagon brushing sponge!

The brush side is used to "pick up" and apply the foundation.

The sponge side is used to seamlessly blend the foundation on your face.

 The foundation will dry out and settle on your face pretty quickly, so it's highly recommended to apply this foundation part by part on your face. For those who have a smaller face, you can apply the foundation side by side instead.

You actually don't have to set your makeup with a setting powder with this foundation. How awesome is that?!!

Verdict
I loveeeeee this foundation a lot!! It's remarkably lightweight; while on my face, it makes me feel as if I'm not wearing any makeup at all. The coverage is moderately light, which gives my skin a very natural-looking, soft and semi-matte finish. Besides, it brightens up my complexion and balances out my uneven skin tone. And the best thing about this SPF30+++ foundation is that it is able to "hang around" my face perfectly without showing any signs of wear even after a long sweaty day. I can assure you that the oil-proof formula is really working its magic!! I also think that this product truly lives up to its name; it's literally skin-fit!

You really should give this foundation a try if you are looking for something that gives you a natural and long-lasting coverage. However, if you prefer a foundation that gives you a full coverage, this product might not be your best option (but this foundation is buildable: that is you can apply multiple layers until you achieve the desired coverage) Once again, do note that this foundation tends to settle pretty quickly, so you need to apply it by parts and blend it well with the dual-sided sponge to avoid patchiness.

The Shu Uemura skin:FIT foundation is available in 12 different shades and is retailed at RM148/bottle. For more info, please visit Shu Uemura's Official Facebook Page.
