Results: It’s not the cleanest foundation that I have tried, yet it’s on the best and most suitable for my skin type. I wish to find a dupe with identical performance but clean ingredients. Recently, I tried Juice Beauty Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Flawless Serum Foundation 30ml, but the performance of the foundation is different and I cannot call it a dupe. I’m happy with the performance of Shiseido,which lasts for 10 hours. I need powder touch ups during lunch time. I do get oily on my T-zone, but it’s just the nature of my skin and I found that it happens on a daily basis, no matter which foundation I would try. The foundation is buildable with a lightweight feel, without caking while applying more layers. It has light to medium coverage and doesn’t settle into the fine lines. Personally I don’t like matte full cover foundations, because it looks heavy and cake on my skin after a few hours of application (Bare Mineral Matte powder screw you!).
- Doesn’t settle into fine lines
- Easy to apply with brush, sponge and fingers
- ingredients : Silicones – Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, BHT, Phenoxyethanol
- Slightly tacky on my skin
Real Technique Sponge – The formula spreads evenly and enables buildable light to medium coverage. However some part of the foundation sinks into the sponge.
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush – Application with this brush is smooth and even. The coverage is fuller than with the sponge, because the foundation doesn’t sit as much.
E.L.F. Cosmetics e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush – similar application to the Real Techniques brush, however some strikes may appear and you can even it with the sponge.
Kabuki Brush from Amazon – the most even, smooth and full coverage application. No strikes appear with this brush.

Swatches – Shade Birch 210 – I feel like the foundation might be a tone dark for me, still I believe it merges with my complexion very well. I’m considering to go for 1 shade lighter – 160
