Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Foundation

May 29, 2017

I can’t seem to get enough of Shiseido’s foundations!  Their Synchro Skin Glow Cushion [reviewed here] has become a permanent feature in my purse, the formula is perfect for wearing on its own and touch-ups.  And just as I’m running out, the brand has launched the Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation!

Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Foundation

Shiseido extends its family of smart-skin foundations with the new Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation.  It is able to sense changes in the skin’s sebum and moisture levels as the day progresses, and synchronize throughout the day for a perfected complexion.  Whereas the first Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation [reviewed here] was designed for oily – combination skin types, this new Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation is better suited for those with dry – dehydrated skin.

The Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation is formulated with Argan Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil and Yuzu Seed Extract to boost hydration and help skin retain moisture for youthful suppleness.  There is a Super Bio-Moisture Network that prevents an uneven finish caused by dryness, leaving skin with a beautiful lustrous look.  Wild Thyme Extract helps provide anti-oxidant benefits; and broad spectrum SPF 20 protects the skin from UV damage.  Please click here for the full ingredient list.

Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Foundation comparison swatches

I have the same shade Neutral-2 for all 3 of the Shiseido Synchro Skin foundations, and have swatched them side-by-side here for your reference.  As you can see, the new Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation is slightly pinker in tone, giving a slight brightening effect, but is otherwise quite similar.  In comparison, the original Synchro Skin is more yellow-based.  The cushion version is closer in shade to the original, but is in fact somewhere between the 2 fluid foundations.

Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation is sheerer and less buildable than the cushion with the same name.  However, it has the same beautiful my-skin-but-better finish, and a natural luminosity that looks fresh and healthy.  It works well on uneven skin tone, and minimizes the look of pores, whilst keeping my dehydrated skin comfortable and does not emphasize dry patches.  I would recommend this for the summer months ahead when you want to look your best without looking like you’re trying too hard.  Check it out in stores now!
