Hello lovelies! Mr. Shu Uemura once said, "beautiful make-up starts with beautiful skin." I do agree with his statement because our skin effects what we put on our skin. Shu Uemura has revealed their new addition of its TSUYA skincare series. TSUYA skin basically means 'ideal skin' in Japanese.
After years of observations and experiences, Shu Uemura makeup-artists discovered 2 core qualities, skin 'touch' and 'look' in examining skin to create the perfect makeup finish. Moreover, they believe that cosmetic water is the answer to bring a fresh, water-filled touch to skin and a pure, transparent look to the skin for a perfect make-up finish. That is how NEW TSUYA skin youthful crystal-transparency lotion is born. This lotion are able to create the 'ideal skin' texture - supple with petal soft, dewy touch and a healthy glow.
The NEW TSUYA skin youthful crystal-transparency lotion comes in 3 types according to skin types;
I - Fresh watery for oily skin
II - Watery for normal to dry skin
III - Rich jelly for dry to very dry skin
Shu Uemura researchers discovered the secret of CP Complex*1 (Yeast Extract + Rhamnose) helps to boost the self-cleaning mechanism for ideal youthful skin. CP Complex supports the discharge and decomposition of accumulated impurities.
What are the benefits of TSUYA skin youthful crystal-transparency lotion?
It's clinically proven that this lotion provides smoother skin, tighten pores, more refined skin texture, more even toned complexion, reduce skin yellowness and improves skin transparency as skin is more luminous and more transparent.
During the event, we get to try out the TSUYA lotion and we can see major differences with just a swipe with the cotton. However, the cotton pad they're using is not just a normal cotton pad.
Yes, TSUYA skin youthful crystal-transparency lotion has companion. It's called Silk supreme crystallizer and each piece of lotion pad has dual sides with different surface texture. The rough side was made in 100% silk and it's purpose for polish the skin to gently purify smooth skin while the other side is made of 100% pure cotton for patting onto the skin for hydration, refresh and cool the skin. Providing extraordinary smoothness while delivering moisture and suppleness to the skin for better foundation fit.A test result of 30 women said 83% of good foundation finish, 87% of moisturized skin and 90% feel smoother skin. It's recommended to use once daily, however, the lotion could be use twice a day.
While introducing their TSUYA skincare series, they flashed back their Lightbulb fluid foundation in 2013 where it quickly became an icon of Shu Uemura of creating a beautiful 'glowing skin canvas'. Following in 2014, they revealed Shu Uemura's NEW lightbulb™ oleo-technology which has its unique packaging of 'the lightbulb'-shaped sponges which was inspired by rich experience and makeup expertise of makeup artists and the tapping motion of traditional Japanese kabuki brushes.
Therefore for this autumn, Shu Uemura will launch the Lightbulb oleo-pact, no water added cream foundation. Glow and coverage remain at the heart of this formulation, and with new jellified oil complex, together with an original dome-shaped sponge, the Lightbulb oleo-pact creates a dewy satin glow and streak-free finish for a fresh complexion that lasts longer.
Interestingly, Shu Uemura discovered that a women’s daily emotional curve peaks after applying make-up in the morning; emotions shifted into negative territory right after lunch, as skin appears dull, greasy and often shiny, even tired, and become heavy and dry by night. Therefore, Shu uemura discovered that anti-dullness, lightness and skin that did not feel dry were the secrets to creating positive emotions in women.
The Lightbulb oleo-pact foundation comes in a cream compact version formulated with conditioning oils and it has SPF 25 PA+++ and comes along with dome-shaped sponge which helps to melt the foundation into the skin to create a veil of stain glow. Yet, this foundation are able to cover imperfections and it lasts for 12 hours without looking dull and also 6 hours of moisture with lightweight feeling.
Available in 16 shadesThe dome-shaped sponge are thick at the peak (10mm) and thin at the edge(3mm), this unique shape designed by shu uemura Atelier team effortlessly creates a thin and streak-free finish.
