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.
