Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation Review

After much test driving, I’m finally posting my review for the world’s best foundation — for my face anyway. It’s Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation. I discovered it when I was given some sachets at the SM Beauty event some months ago. I tried out one for fun and it was pure magic. Honestly speaking, I’m not very fond of foundation. I’ve always been more of a BB Cushion person. But this product is just TOO GOOD not to have on my dresser.

Shiseido Synchro Skin FoundationI got the shade Golden 2. I had sachets of Golden 2, Golden 3, Neutral 2, and Neutral 3. Golden 2 was the best match for me. One 30ml bottle of Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation costs ₱2,850. Yes it’s pricey but I spare no expense when it comes to my face.

Shiseido Synchro Skin FoundationSo there are actually 2 kinds of Shiseido Synchro Skin Foundation — Lasting and Luminizing Glow. Since we live in a humid country, I advise getting the Lasting version.

Shiseido Synchro Skin FoundationThis is a swatch of Golden 2. I love how water-like the consistency is. It’s incredibly lightweight… even more so than BB Cream and CC Cream.

Shiseido Synchro Skin FoundationIt spreads easily and dries to a natural matte finish which blends with your skin perfectly.

What I like about Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation:

  • It’s the most lightweight medium coverage foundation I’ve tried so far. The water-like consistency makes it easy to apply and build up.
  • It dries (rather quickly) to a natural matte finish without looking cakey. Definitely your skin but better.
  • It’s oil-free and long lasting. I had it on for 8 hours with no retouch and it showed no signs of vanishing.
  • My skin actually feels nice and silky after application. It’s like second skin so it’s easy to forget you have anything on your face.
  • A little product goes a long way so one bottle will last a loooong time.
  • There are a lot of shades available with over a dozen Neutral, Golden, and Rose tones to choose from.

Downside? Well it is rather pricey at almost ₱3k per bottle but wow, it’s so worth it. I get a lot of compliments whenever I use it.

The Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation is available at Shiseido boutiques. You can also purchase at the Shiseido Flagship Store on Lazada.

    I fully agree with your review as I am also using Shiseido. Mine is the Synchro Skin Luminizing Glow Foundation in Golden 3 shade. As i prefer sheer coverage with more moisturizing formula & dewy finish, I went for the Luminizing Glow. Yes the brand is expensive so I made use of the cash vouchers that Shiseido gave away last month and managed to take away P500 from the foundation price. But I believe that it is totally worth it because of the product’s quality.

      I really like the Glow version too, but since my skin tends to oil up I opted for this one. 🙂
