Shu Uemura POREraser CC UV Under Base Mousse Review
Looks like Shu Uemura has up their base options. The Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse has been one of my faves for years and something I would recommend if you have oily skin. Now what can be more exciting than having the POREraser and a CC combined. The latest Shu Uemura POREraser CC UV Under Base Mousse SPF35PA+++ is a 3-in-1 Complexion Control is formulated to give you a poreless finish, even complexion and long lasting make up, as opposed to the conventional colour corrector.
The mousse type consistency is exactly the same as the UV Under Base Mousse. It's meant to be weightless and creates a thin veil for a natural even complexion. The Complexion Control Under Base enhances the natural skin tone instead of correcting or masking it, as compared to the conventional CC.
The formulation of a mix of 3 powders, one of them being the "flower bud" powder for powerful sebum absorption and shine control. The Poreless effect is achieved with a light diffusion powder compex which gives optical pore minimising effect, where as sodium salicylate exfoliates old skin for smoother surface in long term. Colour is developed with pigments of main skin tone composition, giving you four shades to address various concerns. Silica coated pigments gives even spreadability and clear colour payoff.
SHUATELIER has developed 4 shades depending the look you want to achieve or to tackle a particular Asian skin concern - Ivory, Pink Beige and Deep Beige.
Just like the previous UV under base mousse, this airy textured base is easy to blend out and give that smooth complexion effect. The Poreraser CC makes my makeup last through out the day, for about 6 hours, without any slipping, after which some blotting and touch up is required. As for shine control, it did well for about 2 hours until my nose started to get shiny.
I tried two shades, beige and deep beige. Beige makes my complexion appear brighter and slightly fairer even with foundation. Deep beige however looks great on my skin tone. It evens out any unevenness and discolouration making it a perfect canvas for foundation. It also doesn't change the colour of the foundation I was wearing, it stayed true. While it is recommended that you apply this with Shu Uemura's pentagon sponge, I found my fingers did the job fine. So of you have combination-oily skin types and are looking for a good base, definitely try this!
