Shiseido The Makeup Lifting Foundation SPF16 Light Ivory Review


Shiseido The Makeup 

Hey girls,

Today I am sharing my experience with the Shiseido foundation. I always look out for a full coverage foundation which is non-greasy and that glides very smooth on skin. These three being my major requirements are very difficult to find together in a foundation but my problem is solved with this foundation. This one has been especially designed for normal to drier side skins. Though I have a combination sensitive skin, I can say this foundation has been by far one of the best ones for my skin since I have acne prone oily skin which gets flaky dried in winters so it works for me only then.

Shade: Light Ivory

My Experience with Shiseido The Makeup Lifting Foundation SPF16 – Light Ivory:

Since I have mentioned earlier my skin type is very sensitive that gets super oily in summers and severely dry in winters. (And I find dry skin better than oily.) My facial skin also has open pores and acne scars so I always wear a full coverage foundation. My skin needs moisture in winters and since this foundation is moisture rich and helps my skin look better, I picked this one. It also has sunscreen protection that makes t even better. You must be wondering why I picked Ivory Light so I would like to tell you that I always wear foundation one tone lighter than my original so I picked Ivory and set it with a matching skin tone compact. And the Ivory shade in Shiseido is not too white. It’s a bit pinkier nude tone.

Texture: It’s a thick creamy foundation. It is very smooth and glides fairly easy all over the face unlike many others which feel sticky and tug while spreading.

Coverage: the best thing about it is that you can play with the quantity you use. It is generally a sheer-medium coverage foundation but becomes a full coverage one and can be build up. It does not really feel thick, cakey or heavy on the face. It is also moisturizing so keeps the skin hydrated.

Finish: It gives a dewy finish and may be that is because of the moisture and silicones present in it. I recommend sensitive skin people who are allergic/reactive with silicones not to try this one. This foundation is for more mature skin which needs some or the other kind of fixing. In case you wear foundation only for a clear makeup base, I would not recommend this for you.

What I like about Shiseido The Makeup Lifting Foundation SPF16 – Light Ivory:

  • Moisturizing.
  • Non-comedogenic.
  • Non-greasy.
  • Lasts for about 7-8 hours.
  • Gives full coverage.
  • Has sunscreen.
  • Diminishes appearance of fine lines, pores and blemishes.

What I don’t like about Shiseido The Makeup Lifting Foundation SPF16 – Light Ivory:

  • Its makes me feel oily and don’t last too long in summers. May be it’s just for me only because I have a VERY oily skin. Dry skin people should be fine I believe since its made for normal to dry skin only.

TIP– Oily skins should use it only in winters. 😀

Overall Verdict– It is a great product that does not clog pores or look cakey. I would recommend it to be tried especially those who needs full coverage. It’s a great quality product for sure.

Will I buy this product again? – I might, in case I do not find a better one for my winter’s skin. I will last me at least two winters anyways. 🙂

Rating– 4/5
