Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation

I don't know why I keep buying foundations. It's like a terrible disease. I guess the hunt for the perfect base is a never-ending one. When Shiseido released a product called Perfect Refining Foundation, I just couldn't resist jumping on it.

As mentioned in my previous post, my skin has been suffering from rather bad allergies. It's been bumpy, red and flaky but started getting a little better over the weekend. I thought it looked okay enough to review this new foundation.

Look at how tiny the bottle is but it's a good 30ml, which is a similar volume to most foundations out there. The packaging is different to all other Shiseido foundations as they are usually housed in glass bottles or jars. I quite like that it's plastic and lightweight, which makes it the perfect travel companion.

Product Description:

This foundation blends seamlessly to instantly erase conspicuous pores, acne scars, and skin roughness for even, long-lasting coverage. It minimizes shine while optimizing the moisture balance of the skin, offering a refined finish for 15 hours. 

This foundation is formulated with Micro-Smoothing Complex, a Shiseido-exclusive ingredient that protects against the enzyme that causes skin roughness.

Great review! I have been thinking to get this foundation myself, but found it a bit too drying for my dry skin around the cheeks and chin.

Hi Jess, Thanks for stopping by. This foundation is not the moisturising type and it does tend to sit atop some flaky bits. Still, it's not a bad foundation.
