Shu Uemura: Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation Review

I’ve been searching for a nice foundation that will suit my sensitive acne prone skin. I prefer it light weight but still has the coverage that could conceal acne/scars effectively. I’ve tried lots of BB creams but they just doesn’t do justice on my skin and the most thing I hate is it leaves white cast on my face which is really a No-no >_<
Finally, the search is finally over!! Cuz, I’ve found my Holy Grail Foundation:

What it claims?
·         Provides Smooth and Finish look
·         Buildable coverage
·         Allows foundation to sit naturally on the skin

My Reviews:
·         Able to even out skin tone perfectly
·         Definitely buildable, but will not look like you have piled a juke despite several coverage
·         Not able to conceal cystic acnes (concealers is still needed)
·         Provides a natural matte finish
·         Does NOT experience any allergies or discomfort, breakouts etc( I have sensitive acne prone and been using this foundie for straight 3 weeks)
·         No white cast or pale looking skin; just healthy natural skin finish
·         Does not clog pores
·         Might be a bit expensive but  I think this bottle could last me a long time

(Click for larger view)

Recommend & Buy Again?
·         Doubles Yes! I recommend to people who are sick of heavy foundation (your skin needs to breathe!) as this is really a light foundation but has the ability to even out skintone and doesn’t clog pores.

    1. As long as I set it up with finishing powder it doesn't oil up at all or maybe just bcuz' I'm always on A/C, hehe~ ^_^~

  10. You look cute! I like light consistency foundation with coverage as well. Lately I'm using cream foundation na full coverage.

    Because I only have to apply a very very thin layer and thin layer prevents makeup from looking too cakey because you don't have to slather on a lot of it.

  11. you're so cute in the pics! haha anyway, i think it's great that it provides natural matte finish! I don't like foundation that gives oily finish :-/

  15. Thanks so much for the review. I have a mild acne problem too so I know how it feels to search for a foundation that works with acne not against it. I think I will have to add this to my list to things to try.

  20. Thanks for the review! This looks like a great, lightweight foundation, especially now that the weather is starting to get warmer. It looks very natural on you :) I haven't tried any of Shu Uemura's face products before; I'll have to see if they sell the foundations at Sephora.

    P.S. I don't know if you live in the US, but I'm holding a giveaway for a Le Edge Exfoliating Tool, hope you'll check it out here!

  22. Ayan po ba talaga ang mga recent pics mo Ms. Janet? Bakit wala naman akong makitang acnes sa pics mo? Or is it because natatakpan ng makeup na inaapply mo? =)
