Review | Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation + MY BIRFDAYSaturday, June 23, 2012
Anyways let's get on with this review!
I've been wearing foundation a lot more recently but all I really wear is BB cream since that's all I have in my foundation collection with the exception of my powder foundations which I only use for setting my makeup. I decided to branch out and try a bit more foundations and I first bought this Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation. I have the sunscreen from the Sun Protection line which I love SOOO much. It's the only sunscreen I ever use for my face and I already went through 4 bottles.
The main reason why I got this foundation is because it has SPF 36. It's the summer time and it's extremely important you have a good amount of SPF. I recommend wearing SPF 30 or above. I know there's some people who think SPF 15 will do the job but NO IT WILL NOT. My Aveeno moisturizer has SPF 15 and I still wear sunscreen over it because SPF 15 won't do shit. Maybe it'll protect your skin from the sun for like 10 minutes.
Stick foundations are like cream foundations in a stick form. They're really easy to use. What I do is just dab a bit of the foundation all over the face. You can use a brush to blend it out but I think using my clean fingers is the way to go since it's a lot easier to blend it out. I think this has medium coverage but you can definitely build it up without looking cakey. This gives a very flawless look and this will stay on all day! I heard pro surfers use this stuff because it's water proof and just amazing.
My skin is pretty oily in the summer time and this does not make me look greasy throughout the day. I think because this is in a stick format, it's very easy for traveling and I even brought this with me to New York!
