Beauty brands are always so innovative in releasing new products with new function. This time, Shu Uemura releases a compact foundation that provides medium to high coverage with natural glow.
The powder comes with a special sponge that has a special curve to help application more evenly. The sponge was made from a different material compared to most sponges available in the market. This sponge able to pick up quite a handful of products but afraid not, there won’t be too much products transferred during the application.
I have tried wearing Shu Uemura Oleo Pact for a while. The foundation feels lightweight and yet it provides medium that can be build to high coverage.
There were few methods of application I have tested so far. I have tried applying this with foundation brush (stippling brush) and the result was not satisfying. I can see brush strokes when I use foundation brush to apply. I have also tried using the sponge with tapping motion, and apparently I feel that the finish would be too thick for my liking. Finally I tried using the given sponge in a pulling motion. After getting enough amount of product on the sponge, I’ll apply it on my face with pulling motion. In this way, the coverage and the finish looks beautiful.
In the pictures above, I have shown the difference Oleo Pact can do to your skin. With a gentle swipe, this foundation covers my flaws and makes my skin looks smoother.
Shu Uemura Oleo Pact will be available islandwide in Singapore in September
