[Review] Shu Uemura Skin Fit Foundation

Review: Shu Uemura Skin Fit Foundation*. Having never tried a water based foundation, i was interested in how this foundation worked.

The Skin Fit Foundation is no ordinary foundation, it is water based therefore completely oil free. Shu Uemura describes this foundation as lightweight, natural coverage, breathable and provides a lasting fresh complexion. It also has an SPF of 30 PA +++.

The foundation comes in 7 shades and in 30 ml bottles, it also comes with a small sponge that can be purchased separately. The sponge has 2 sides which is use to help apply the foundation. The orange side is used to pick up the foundation and then the sponge side is used to blend/absorb water.

  1. First shake the bottle
  2. Drop the foundation on the palm of your hand 
  3. Using the orange side of the sponge, pick up the foundation and swipe on a section of the face
  4. Use the white side of the sponge to dab, pick up any excess foundation and blend the foundation.
  5. Repeat with other sections of face.
Pros:                                Cons:
- Oil free                          - Hard to apply
- Water based                 - Takes a while to master
- Long lasting                  - Pricey

The most important thing about this foundation is that, it is best to work in sections of your face to achieve a great application. This is a foundation where you cannot rush, so it's quite time consuming. As for overall finish it is quite matte, therefore not exactly ideal for people with dry skin. It does take a while to master the whole applying process. 

I personally quite disliked the foundation since it was fairly difficult to apply and very time consuming, as a student i do like my products very basic and easy to use. It would probably be more idea for people with oily/normal skin. If you're interested in this foundation i would recommend for you to try it out in stores before purchasing a full size bottle to avoid disappointment.

Have you tried this foundation before? What are your thoughts?
