Every make-up addict knows that the key to long-lasting foundation is a good make-up base.  I used to be clueless about this and did not understand why foundation would peel off like dry skin!!  Anyway, I absolutely loved my Shu Uemura Under Base Cream, but when it ran out, I decided to try Shu Uemura UV Under Base

Product Description (in my own words)

Make-up primer in mousse formulation with SPF 17

Shu Uemura Mousse
My Opinions

  • I like the idea of having SPF in my make-up base
  • The mousse formulation is fun!  I like ‘scooshing’ it out of the aerosol can
  • The mousse is lightweight and froths away and absorbs easily into skin
  • Make-up glides on easily afterwards and has staying power
  • However, I feel that my cheeks look oily in photos (whereas, when I used Shu’s Under Base Cream, this did not happen)
  • A satisfactory 8 out of 10 (but for the Under Base Cream, I give it 10 out of 10)

I normally buy Shu Uemura products when I am in Hong Kong.  There is a new Shu Uemura UV Under Base with SPF 30 and also, it is available in fluid form too.  Well, I will be going to Malaysia at the end of the year so I will be doing a lot of shopping then, methinks!

In conclusion :  Shu Uemura UV Under Base, you’re good, but I prefer your sister, Shu Uemura Under Base Cream.

    yeh i was thinking of trying MAC because my face has just been soo oily recently but I forgot I got this for christmas so was googling it to see if it was any good. They’ve changed the packaging since and its SPF 30 now. I actually tried it today but only on my t-zone, it’s alright i suppose, I still had to blot but i guess it does work – i just have unusually oily skin! =P

      @Vivien, Oily skin is good. Means less wrinkles in the future! 🙂
