I bought this at. Shiseido sale a couple of years ago wanting to try a new foundation. I fell in love. It's a real shame that they are no longer making it in my shade because it's the only foundation I can honestly say has worked the best for my skin tone. Feels light on my skin and makes my skin look flawless!

I want to let you know that my shade is # 160 Natural Deep Ivory.....and i am native American and usually wear golden caramel in Revlon colorstay---
anyway--this is a great foundation!! you need very little(and I have dark marks and scars!) to cover your face. it is very runny, and easy to blend. it offers some coverage but is not full coverage. it leaves me with enough coverage where I feel like I am well covered and can go about my day.
it doesn't make me break out, it covers blemishes and marks on my face and it lasts all day with an occasional touch up with powder here and there. the bottle has lasted me quite some time and I plan to repurchase when it finally runs out. I love how it has sunscreen In the foundation and it has a decent spf in it as well. I would definitely recommend you give it a try. I sure like it 😊

This was one of my very favorite foundations for many years. It is a medium-to-full coverage foundation that worked beautifully with my combination oily skin. The foundation claims to balance your skin's moisture levels, and I really found that to be true. It did not cling to or emphasize my dry patches, and even without a primer, my skin never turned into a greaseball. My only complaint is that it sets very quickly, so you have to move fast, and it does not build as nicely as some other foundations. You can build to a very full coverage, but unless you work quickly, it tends to look cakey. It dries down to a satin matte powder finish.

I have very oily skin, and found that this foundation just did not wear well in my skin. It feels nice when applied but it is looks like a mess on the face after after a few hours. I think this would works great on a more normal skin type, but for anyone with oily skin wanting to try a foundation from Shiseido, try the Syncro Skin, it's an awesome product, no touch ups needed throughout the day!

Shesido products work wonderfully but I just found out that they are used with mercury which in the love run damages the skin. So I stopped using the products. They're products do work though so if you want results use it.

Great coverage that looks natural. It doesn't fully cover my freckles, which I like because it looks more natural. It evens my skin tone and diminishes blemishes. The best thing for me, someone with dry skin, is that it doesn't dry my face out more or cause it to over produce oil.

Feels amazing on! Great finish and lasts all day without budging. Makes my skin look like porcelain. Very lightweight and a little goes a long way! Dried quickly so work with it in sections.

I really like this foundation. It covers my imperfections while still allowing my natural skin to do it's job. I always tend to feel like it makes me look naturally glowing. I would recommend this foundation !

The consistency of Shiseido liquid makeup is very liquid, it does not have pasty consistency like other makeup, so it is applied a little bit more is enough to cover very well.
The liquid base has that luster you were looking for, you can see that it is not a matte finish, but it looks great.
Comes with lots of variety of tones, I love it
