Happy Monday everybody! Pretty humid day, isn’t it? I’m wearing Shu Uemura’s latest UV underbase today, and it’s called Tsuya UV Underbase. It’s part of the all- new Tsuya Skin Care series.

 Packaging is basically the same as the regular UV Underbases, but this one has a pearlized can. Shu Uemura explained that the delicate pearl sheen symbolizes the Tsuya promise: radiant, flawless, and youthful skin.

 It only comes in one color, Peach.

 I find that this product is a tad bit different than Shu Uemura’s regular underbases: Its consistency is thicker, and texture is more moisturizing. Regarding the scent, this one has a more perfume- like fragrance as compared to the staple light floral scent of the regular UV Underbases. Tsuya UV Underbase’s scent is never overpowering and stays light all throughout. It’s a good thing because it helps mask the sharp smell emanating from sebum.

 Peach is a very pale peach color with micro glitters that are almost invisible to the naked eye. It evens out skin tone, and the glimmers yield a natural, glowing sheen that peeks through your makeup. Finish is semi-matte with a hint of glow. You can also use this to dilute dark foundation shades: Just apply two or three layers prior to your foundation.

 I find that in spite of its slightly thick consistency, drying time is pretty quick-- almost as quick as the regular underbases.

Performance- wise, it’s almost like the regular underbases but the difference is, it is infused with anti-aging extracts. Not only does it make your makeup last all day, but it also regenerates your skin by turning on its ‘Youth Power Switch’ during wear. I recommend it to girls with dry skin because the moisturizing consistency will help quench flaky areas, and at the same time to girls and women who fancy skin care- based makeup. For best results, use in conjunction with the new Tsuya Skin Youthful Radiance Generator Serum.

8 Lovely Thoughts

  1. If only Shu Uemura prods weren't so expensive huhu - although they are worth the investment! But I'll be "brokeback mountain" for a while if I do that :P

  2. will this be ok on a combination oily skin?? Thanks.. ;))

  3. Do you think this would be good for sensitive skin? I like the packaging! :)

  4. marjorie: yes. :) I have oily skin and it works fine :)

    kmmyp: Hi there and welcome to tbj! Thanks for sharing! Same thoughts that's why I only treat them as treats haha! :D

  5. Hi! I'm currently in college with combination skin and I'm interested in trying Shu Uemura products. Would you recommend this or is it better that I stick to the other Shu Uemura UV Bases? :) Also, been reading your blog for a while now! :)

  6. Toni; Hello there and welcome to tbj! :D Glad to know you're an avid reader! :D

    If you want something with better benefits, go for this. It won't make your face extra oily because its creaminess is due to its higher water/gel content, not oil or cream. :) I have oily skin and it doesn't aggravate my oilies. :)

  7. Thanks for answering! :) Sorry, I have one more question, how long does the bottle usually last when used on a daily basis? :D

    You are my authority when it comes to makeup and skincare! :)

  8. This is really good! I'm using it during special occassion. Good cover plus covers big pores!
