I Am So Curious About This New Foundation By Shu Uemura

I know, another foundation, right? I couldn’t resist and I am not even going to try find an excuse for getting this new foundation. The new Shu Uemura Face Architect Sheer Refining Mousse Foundation is not just another foundation in my opinion.

Being a long time user of their popular UV Under Base Mousse SPF 30 PA+++, I am so curious about how the mousse texture of their new foundation can create flawless looking skin.

Will it provide enough coverage? Does it blend evenly? Will it work for my combination skin?

The new Mousse Foundation comes in the same size and packaging as the UVUB Mousse.

Consistency of the Mousse Foundation is a little denser than the UVUB Mousse but both blends out very evenly on my skin.

I am matched to 7YR-ML Medium Light Beige for the Mousse Foundation. I have only started trying this foundation and I haven’t had the chance to wear it out the entire day. So, write-ups about the products will come a little later but I am amazed at the coverage this Mousse Foundation delivers. It’s lightweight but managed to even up my skin tone and conceal flaws. I normally use a stippling brush to apply this foundation and it works perfectly find.

Shu Uemura was having a promotion – Free 30g Deluxe Face Architect Sheer Refining Mousse Foundation if you purchase* a UVUB product (can be mousse/fluid/cream) and a full-size Mousse Foundation. I am not sure if this promotion is still on.

I got this foundation last month when it just launched thus Shu Uemura still had the Limited Edition Mika Ninagawa UVUB Mousse in stock. I believe the limited edition shade – BB Beige from this collection is not available anymore. The shade I got is Beige which I am keeping as a back-up, my current UVUB is finishing. The mini 30g Mousse Foundation is so cute, great for travelling.

The Shu Uemura Face Architect Sheer Refining Mousse Foundation and UV Under Base Mousse SPF 30 PA+++ retails at S$78 each with 65g of product each.

Do you think you will try this foundation?

One thought on “I Am So Curious About This New Foundation By Shu Uemura

  1. Tried the bb mousse and finds it over-rated.
    Texture wise is too sticky for my liking.
    I looked sticky too after couple of hours in non aircon workplace.
    Prefers Chanel vitalumiere aqua foundation.
    How do you rate the bb and the foundation for comparison?
