Review : NEW Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15 makes my skin looks like as if it has been photoshopped!

Recently I attended this Shiseido Makeup 2012 Autumn/Winter event and one of the product that was launched at the event was this NEW Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15. This Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15 is using optical science to manipulate light, it illuminates shadows away, bathing our skin in a radiant and youthful glow.

According to Shiseido's discovery, shadows created by wrinkles and sagging are actually what caused the impression of aging. As you all know as we aged, our skin tones changes, whether you like it or not dark spots, freckles,dark circles would appeared somehow! Not just that, our face will lose of elascity and resulting wrinkles & sagging.

According to them, covering these shadowy areas with conventional foundation is often not enough to contract them as wrinkles and saging usually occur on active parts of the parts and movement makes foundation tend to fade and cake there, making lines imperfection even more obvious  <--- I got to agree on this because I do find my laughing lines become more obvious after a while with some foundation I tried!

In this new Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15, their expert has developed a new Radiant Reflective Complex (refer to the picture above) where it applied the light-bouncing effect of a reflector board, shadows immediately disappear. In addition, it promises that the radiant of the cheek makes the lifted look even more apparent.

So after using it for around 2 weeks, I'm ready to review Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15 here!

This Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15 comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. 

It comes in a liquid form but it is little bit thick in texture. It has light pleasant scent.

This is the Shiseido 131 Foundation brush which I picked in Japan's drugstore earlier this year for 1800 yen. Instead of using my fingers to apply, I thought why not pair this with foundation and see how is the effect since both of them are from Shiseido! 

Close up look at the brush 

I must say this is one of the best foundation brush I have ever tried, the bristles are soft yet dense enough to spread my foundation evenly. I like how it will not trap much of my foundation in the brushes making this cost efficient! Shiseido 131 Foundation brush is basically gives easy, fast and even application! 

Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15 glides lightly & smootly across my face whether I used this  Shiseido 131 Foundation brush or my fingers.

Can you guess which side I have applied Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15?

I posted this in my Facebook fanspage and asked similar question! My friend why is the face so flawless and asked me if I photoshopped it or put on concealer. Well I did no do anything except applying the foundation! 

Impressive? Well then you need to scroll down more to see more ! 

Note : Looked at my cheek bone, do you think it's slightly lifted?

Instant even up skin & dark spots looked less visible!

Review of Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15:
I was really impressed with this foundation because only it even up my skin tone, it gives very good coverage without looking & feeling too heavy. It covers up my pigments nicely, pores looked smaller. I can see my face looked more radiant & has that glow!
Fines lines at my eyes areas looked less visible as well and it actually makes me feel okay not to use any concealer when I'm using this foundation! I like how it long lasting and kinda waterproof to me. I remembered last week or so when I ran under the rain to get my car and when I wipe off the rain using  tissue, the foundation stays on & tissue did not really pick up the foundation. 
However I do not see any firming effect (maybe not at my age) but I do see cheek book looked slightly lifted from the first picture. I have foundation on my face for more than 12 hours some of the days, it did not dioxide, it stays on quite well in fact without feeling drying.

To me my face looked like have been photoshopped after using foundation! 


With all the effect I mentioned above, this Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15 has become one of my favourite foundation, yes my holy grail foundation!

 Are you impress ?

I do because it's making my imperfect skin perfect (at least to me)

This Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 15 will be available at the counter on September onward as I was provided this by the PR for review purposely in my blog. The price has been confirmed at RM150 for 30ml.
