Product Review: Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation

Hey everyone! For today, I am writing about my experience with a Japanese makeup brand's foundation.


Please note that I’m no make-up expert, just a consumer sharing my thoughts about the product.

The Product: Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation

Specially formulated for Asian skin, Shiseido Synchro Skin takes pride in its claim to provide “an intelligent, long-lasting foundation that beautifully enhances your complexion with vibrance”, further adding that the product is flawlessly undetectable, “like it belongs to your skin”.

With the product hailing from Ginza in Tokyo, no wonder women trust the brand. Japan is known for producing products that are of superior quality, after all. Now let’s proceed with the review:

Price

Each 30mL bottle costs ₱2,750.00. As someone who usually spends around ₱600-800.00 for foundation, the price was a bit higher than my usual budget; like, one bottle can already get me five bottles of my trusty Maybelline foundation, but since I wanted to try the product, here we are, writing about the experience now.

Product


The product, contained in a matte-coated glass bottle, is a medium-coverage buildable foundation. Meaning, you can apply additional thin layers if you want to without making it look thick or cakey. It feels light on the skin too. The only downside is that it only has SPF15, which I believe is not enough to protect our skin against harmful UV rays (dermatologists say that it has to be at least 30), but the rest is great. It blends well with the skin and is very easy to apply.


As for longevity, the product can stay on your skin for up to 8 hours, that is, if you’re just in the office. For those who are always outside, I believe this can last you 5 to 6 hours, but it still depends on the type of outdoor activities you engage in, of course. Lastly, this is an unscented product, so don't expect it to be fragrant.


Experience

So was it worth it? Yes, because the product worked wonders for my pores, lol. It looked different on my skin compared to the other brand I used. You could also tell the difference when you apply the foundation. The quality is better, and it doesn't feel heavy. I think this product is perfect for those who love natural makeup looks. Also, since one pump can go a long way, a bottle can last up to 15 months. Mine lasted that long. I saved a few trips to the department store.

While I enjoyed using this product and am currently on my second bottle, I'm switching back to my old foundation after this. I just wanted to try it because it was a recommendation from my mom, who has been a loyal user of their products. Shiseido's products are, without a doubt, great (I have also tried their cream eyeshadow and lipstick)- but I have to stick to my budget until I work on all my priorities.

Availability

It's available almost everywhere; you can find this product inside popular department stores nationwide, but I suggest you visit the actual boutiques, since they always get the latest stocks. The beauty consultants give more product samples in small bottles too!



Verdict


9 over 10 😊 I highly recommend this product, especially to those who enjoy doing simple and natural makeup looks. If you want to try it, you can order it from Lazada on this link: Shiseido Liquid Foundation.

That would be all for today, hope this review helped someone decide whether or not to purchase the product. Bye!
