Last week at Holt Renfrew, I picked up the Shu Uemura UV Under Base SPF 30. A primer that also has sunblock in it? Perfect since I do want to wear sunblock daily and I need a primer to set my makeup!
This comes in a can and is a mousse formula. It really does look like hair mousse when your squirt it into your hand.
However, on the skin, this turns into a matte lotion that dries so quickly that it’s a little difficult to blend. You can get around the blending problem if you just use a little bit and blend on one part of your face at a time. I did my face, and then used more for my neck.
The result is matte skin that you can blend makeup on to.
The only problem I have with this base is that it leaves a whitish cast on my skin. I cover it up with makeup, and the makeup colour itself looks lighter, which is no good. If you’re fair already, you won’t have a problem using this, but if you’re not – I’d just avoid this product.
