My HG Foundation for Summer: Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation Review

Yesterday, I made a quick trip to Nordstrom to get me a back up of my new HG foundation for summer. Plus they've had a great GWP: Huge beach tote with 5 samples, with purchase of 2 sun care items. Perfect time to stock up on my favorite products! Samples are: lipstick, Ultimate Cleansing oil (Great! Really wanted to try this) , Bio-Performance Super Revitalizer, Eye make up remover and my HG Lasting Lift mascara.
The Cute little one is the Sun Protection Liquid Foundation SPF 42 PA +++

What Shiseido claims:
  • Provides a flawless makeup finish with full coverage
  • Very water-resistant
  • Resists perspiration, water and oil to maintain a soft matte look
  • Non-sticky and feather-light
  • Contains Thiotaurine, an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals
  • Retains SPF after 80 minutes of water activity
  • Transfer resistant
  • Non-comedogenic
Active ingredient- Titanium Dioxide 13.9%
1 oz/ 30 ml
My shade is SP50
(Mac NC 30 )

Coverage is very good but not full
Take a close look at my flaws on my right chick: Irritation redness, freckles, discolorations and so on...
(Please excuse the different lighting)
I love it because its not that matte

My freckles are still visible as you can see from this picture
  • 2 in 1 product: Great foundation and Great Sunscreen in 1
  • Time saver
  • Water resistant. Good for the beach, pool, surfing, working out
  • Stays all day
  • Feels light on skin
  • Doesn't break me out
  • Good match for my skin tone (although color selection is limited )
  • Reasonable price (instead of buying foundation and sunscreen separately)
  • Color selection is limited. Just 7 shades SP10-SP70
  • Not for dry, patchy skin
  • Not easily removed with soap. I've heard I have to use oil remover only but my Purity by Philosophy removes it with no problem.
  • The sponge it comes with is terrible. Don't use that as it absorbs the product well, like a sponge. I found finger application was the best.
  • Messy application. Sticks to your fingers and everything you touch with them.
I'm almost done with one bottle and just love it. Definitely my HG Summer Foundation.
