Review: Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation

The modest-looking Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation got me sold immediately the first time I tried it. For my normal/dry skin, liquid foundations work best, and I love my foundations natural, radiant and light-weight. Shu Uemura’s Petal Skin Fluid Foundation checks all those boxes and more!

Ok, I admit it. 

I was already sold the moment I saw my idol Pony (a Korean makeup blogger turned celebrity) use the Petal Skin Fluid Foundation in one of her makeup tutorials HAHAHA! The foundation looked absolutely flawless on her, and I couldn’t wait to try it out on myself!

Why is Pony so perfect?? You need to watch this video to see what I mean. This is what I call an effortless-looking natural finish!

Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation (SPF 20 PA++)

Inspired by the beauty of petals, the new petal skin fluid foundation features a unique and innovative combination of semi-matte and semi-glow characteristics in one beautiful formula. The unique petal skin technology within the foundation contains mineral fine-pigments with high skin affinity, hence offering a natural poreless coverage that emits soft radiance.

Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation comes in 11 shades – I wear shade 564 (medium beige sand), which is a perfect match for my skin tone.

Available in 11 shades \ $68 (30ml)

Texture-wise, Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation is amazing. It’s extremely light-weight, and spreads easily, with no cakiness or settling into lines. It also feels moisturizing and comfortable, almost like wearing nothing on your skin at all!

Look at how the Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation blends into my skin so imperceptibly!

It contains mineral fine pigments that have high skin affinity to achieve a thin and smooth layer with natural powerless coverage, evens out complexion and signs of imperfections.

Petal Skin Fluid Foundation also contains the following plant extracts: 

*Botanic oleo-veil (soothes skin)

*White jasmine extract (boosts skin clarity for a bright and radiant complexion) 

*White lily extract (hydrates skin).

Shu Uemura Petal 55 Brush \ $80

For best results, I highly recommend Shu Uemura’s Petal 55 Brush together with Petal Skin Fluid Foundation for seamless coverage with just a few strokes.

The hairs on this brush are so incredibly soft and luxurious! Its unique ergonomic shape also allows for both precise and even application on your entire face, even around the eyes and nose.

Using the Shu Uemura Petal 55 Brush is really easy, just use long sweeping strokes in the directions indicated by the arrows in this picture. It’s quite intuitive, really.

This brush can also be used for any foundation texture, regardless of whether it’s liquid, cream or powder. I love how the brush feels so gentle on my skin, and it does such a good job with application of the Petal Skin Fluid Foundation.

Before/After: My overall skin tone has been evened out and redness around the nose, as well as my dark eye rings, are a lot less pronounced. One pump for my entire face gives me a natural-looking medium coverage.

The breakthrough petal skin technology also diffuses light from skin to give the appearance of a soft, poreless finish! It looks almost like my skin got magically airbrushed to become petal soft and radiant.

I’m in love with the semi-matte, velvety and poreless finish that feels and looks like second skin! The lightweight finish is perfect for everyday usage.

As I have normal/dry skin, I find that the Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation looks great on its own, but I recommend setting it with loose powder if you tend towards combination/oily skin. 

Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation has also been tested in Singapore weather to ensure that it’s humidity and heat resistant, and I was impressed with how the foundation held up throughout the day with no oxidation or “sliding off”! 

Finshing off my everyday to-go look with a light touch – A bit of concealer around my eyes, eyebrow pencil, subtle eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush and lip color!
