Shiseido UV Protection Liquid & Stick Foundations

 Shiseido is re-launching two of their  Sun Care Foundations . The new formulations feature the activized ingredients of ProfenseCEL which inhibits enzyme activity that causes wrinkles and uneven skin tone and Super Veil -UV 360 that is a patent-pending technology helps ensure even coverage over the skin’s contours for effective protection from the sun.

Both of these foundation are high SPF with physical and chemical sunscreens. 
The UV Protective Foundation Stick is one of the most covering foundations I've used. It's simply fabulous. Full coverage  but it doesn't feel or look heavy. It does have oil as the first ingredient so this is more iffy for oily skins , but it doesn't feel greasy on. My skin looked flawless with this . The SPF is 37 and it's said to be resistant to water and sebum. Considering my semi oily skin I didn't get much oil breakthrough in the T Zone, some yes but not a lot.  Shown in shade Fair Ivory.

UV Protective Liquid Foundation also has good coverage although not quite as full as the stick .  It does however leave  behind a semi matte, nicely perfected face  and is also water and sebum resistant. The liquid is very thin, so one thing  to watch is that it flies out of the bottle tip easily. It's SPF 42 and comes with a sponge in it's own compact.  Shown in shade Light Beige SP20.

Both of these are available now at

Shiseido UV Protective Foundation Stick is $ 28
Shiseido UV Protective Liquid Foundation is $ 36

I need coverage, and that stick foundation looks nice! I was looking at the new Bobbi Brown one, but, at $44 it was too high for my current budget. I love that this one is only $28 :) I may buy it.

Hi Lily, It is really nice . I haven't tried the new Bobbi one but did like an older version a lot. I'm glad to see Sticks getting more popular. They've been hard to find and I love them. Happy shopping
