Shiseido Sheer and Perfect foundation review; before and after photos

Last week I showed you the gorgeous Perfect Rouge lipstick in the shade Showgirl from Shiseido and they've got a stunner of a foundation launching this autumn.  Sheer and Perfect foundation sounds pretty self explanatory doesn't it?


Oh but it does so much more than giving you a sheer and perfect finish.  First up, the formula contains green powder to cancel out redness and blemishes, blue powder to cancel out dark spots and circles and white powder to cancel visible pores.  Sounds like a lot is going on in that little container eh?  Speaking of which, the tube is plastic, lightweight, and perfect for travelling or carrying around with you in your make up bag.

Now, you know that I've been enjoying wearing foundations that are on the sheer side lately and am enjoying pretending that my skin is naturally flawless.  Well lads, Sheer and Perfect makes it look like I'm not wearing any makeup at all.  You can see in the photos below that it evens out my skin tone, reduces redness on my schnozz and cheeks and gives a flawless finish.  What you can't see in the photos is that it really does conceal the rather massive pores on my nose, but rather than sitting in them for all the world to see, camouflages them beautifully.  




The highly pigmented foundation is very fluid in consistency and a little goes a long way.  I've been using a buffing brush to work in into my skin and the shade I was given is ever so slightly too dark for me, but once I apply some to my neck, I'm happy out.  

It feels so lightweight on my skin and when I apply it at 7am, it stays put all day.  The only thing is my nose gets a bit shiny at around lunch time, but nothing that a quick top up of powder can't help.  It contains SPF15, protecting your skin from the rays that burn and age you.  We don't want to burn or age sure we don't?

Shiseido Sheer and Perfect is on counters now, and at €35, it's a fantastic foundation.  I'm talking possible contender for favourite foundation of the year.  I know.  Huge claim there!

  1. I love Shiseido, and I'm so glad it's becoming more available, it was one of favourite brands in New Zealand and my gob was smacked when I found I couldn't just pick it up anywhere here

  5. I bought Sheer & Perfect foundation last month and I use this all the time now because I really dislike heavy foundations and I like to have sunscreen for daytime use. It covers most of my imperfections and lasts all day, even though it is sheer.

  6. Can I ask what shade you have? I will have to order this online so it would be good to have some reference point. Thanks :)

  8. I would also like to know what shade/colour you have, since our skin tone is exactly the same!

  9. Hey guys, I'm shade 140, Natural Fair Ivory, hope that helps! It's a little bit dark for me, but once I blend it down my neck, it's perfect!

  10. Wow, I'm stunned by your "after" photo! It really looks like you're not wearing any foundation at all, but your skin tone is evened out. This foundation looks like the perfect foundation for those who want their skin to look even without obvious makeup -- that's me -- I'll be checking this one out very soon!
