Yesterday, I took it back, and to find out that Shiseido pulled the Perfect Pore Refining Foundations off the shelf to re-formulate the product. I don't know why, but they said it's to make it better. So I decided to try out their newest released foundation, Radiant Lifting Foundation ($45 for 1.2 oz) (released early August 2012). I checked on the web to see if there were any reviews, but it was too new. So I kind of bought this blind.
I just wanted to give you a glimpse and my first impression. I'll do a full review later, but I was so excited, I wanted to do a initial quick review.
I love innovative products. Whether it's something stupid as a straw, cleaning product, detergent, etc... but when it comes to makeup and I think it'll work, I'll go for it. Which is what I did with the Radiant Lifting Foundation. Definitely this foundation is geared towards women of age... but I think you can start at 30 (or when you start to see fine lines).
Briefly, it claims:
Revive your skin with light. A revolutionary anti-aging foundation with innovative light technology to eliminate shadows and give skin a radiant, youthful glow. Radiance Reflecting Powder provides a soft-focus effect and luminosity to wrinkles for a more youthful, lifted appearance. Offers a smooth, radiant finish for 12 beautiful hours and a rich moisturizing effect for 24 hours.
My first impression:
1. Great full coverage without being heavy
2. Very natural (which is insane because it has full coverage)
3. Semi-matte but still very hydrating
4. Glowy and hydrating on the skin
5. Lasted 6 hours without budging or separating or lifting off my skin... (so far)
I think this might be love at first sight... BUT... I will keep testing for a full review...
Picture of me wearing it today at the 7th hour... looks like this can be an HD foundation...
Watch this video to see what it is supposed to do... you might think this can't be real... LOL
