Long ago, I used to repeating shu uemura products, I often bought their lips and pealed. Yeah, I had thought the lip sticks peal my lips, and after finding other brands they do not peal, I rarely buy shu uemura products by myself.
Spring-Summer of 2017, shu uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation (released for SS2017) is one of the upcoming well sold foundation (but they could not beat any of Albion Excia foundations). My THREE foundation (2nd bottle in 2017) is almost done, and I need new foundation for my daily.
My shade is #564, one tone pinkish of the standard.
The BC of shu uemura also gave me a sample of The lightbulb fluid foundation glow.
At first, I show you the swatch of the three foundations.
From the top to the bottom,
- THREE Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation #203
- shu uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation #564
- shu uemura the lightbulb fluid foundation glow #764
(If you want to use our swatch pictures, feel free to ask us. We are glad to sell you, USD1500 per a picture, we will send you the original picture)
Anyway, let me back to the swatch.
The shade of THREE #203 is one torn pinkish of the standard shade of #764, and Petal #564 is a little bit darker than the standard, and the Lightbulb #764 is the standard.
However, when I blended, do you find any difference between three of the foundations?
In this picture, no. On my eyes, there are small, really small difference, the lightbulb is the lightest, the second is THREE, and the darkest is the Petal.
And the Petal is the most matte, and the lightbulb is more sheer than THREE. However I also need to note that after one hour later, there are nothing big difference between these three parts.
Applying Petal Skin Fluid Foundation on my face
shu uemura designed this foundation with their unique brush. They can be a good combination, but I used my own sponge.
I liked this pump, and it is nice for the hygiene. (I hope new ADDICTION fluid foundation also add pump!!!)
Anyway, I think I need to tell you the scent. Checking the ingredients of this petal skin, seems there are no specific perfume. There are something, but not wired like Lightbulb.
Directly on my face
I had not nice experience with the Lightbulb, I decided to use this foundation in several way. Yeah, I bought full size for myself, there are enough experience 😀
At first I applied this on my face directly.
- Coverage: fair (naturally)
- finish: natural to glow
- Residue: nothing
- Lasting: fair
I do not describe that this finish is neither radiant nor matte. I did not think this coverage is sheer, but natural.
The good thing is there are no film kind leftover. It is really sad that if I bought full bottle made leftover on my face like Lightbulb! 😀
And I felt the lasting is much better than the Lightbulb.
with ADDICTION Skin Protector
ADDICTION Skin Protector is a sunscreen what I use for whole a year. I use this as my foundation primer.
Anyway, I used this Petal foundation after the Skin Protector.
Because the Skin Protector is the transparent product, there are no effect on the coverage, and the finish is a little bit “shining”, because the ADDICTION is oilier product, and some will describe as “glow”, but I say “shine”.
Fortunately, there are no left over.
Sadly the lasting is not well. While I was in the well air conditioned place more than 2 hours, and I found my foundation is running. Probably I should better to use something loose powders.
