Shu Uemura & Zouk KL

Impressed by the flawless finish of the makeup by done by Shu Uemura makeup artists for my mom on the occasion of my grandfather's grand birthday bash @ Hilton, my mom and I returned for more of their products. From her massive purchases, she earned a small bottle of Shu Uemura's UV under base mousse, which went to me of course!

It's earned a place at the front line of my makeup routine. Nowadays....(single and old) I go out of with at least a hint of eyeliner. Such a vain pot. Not for pasar malams of course, waste of money, I'm not stupid. Now I have my UV base on too.

I use it as a skincare product for it's UV protection with SPF 30++, but it comes with a bonus of minimal coverage, and evens out the complexion with a dewy glow akin to the glow on Koreans or Japanese girls. Now that I've found their secret, I'm not letting it go. It is so awesome that I don't need my mineral foundation anymore, plus it doesn't even feel like its there.

Proof of effectiveness? I challenged it to a night of clubbing at Zouk, where it had to endure sweat, sebum production, and long hours. The result was more than impressive. My face had a gentle glow all night, without appearing shiny or oily. You can tell from how the light bounces off my face and compare that to the others. The best part is that it smoothed my skin tone without too much coverage, to allow any blush to come through. This gave the impression that I didn't have on too much makeup. Evidence...

I'm so lovin' it. A skincare product that doubles as a light makeup is my prayer answered. Been using it for 2 weeks now, and no breakouts from it. Lovely.

P/s: Absolutely hate it that Zouk KL allows smoking indoors. Guess it saves them from having to buy smoke machines.

i guess that's what you do when you just look that great in real life.
