Shiseido The Makeup Brightening Veil Review, Swatches, Photos
My latest obsession, newest YOU need this product, Shiseido Brightening Veil.
I picked this up on a whim from Sephora.com a few months ago. I’ve been meaning to get it for a while now but I kept forgetting to put it into my cart.
Thank god I finally remember because I’m not sure I can live without it now!
A colorless-finish foundation that minimizes the appearance of spots, freckles, and dullness, for an even-toned.
Dullness was the keyword here that grabbed my attention. It promises to brighten up dullness and create a smooth, even complexion. Needless to say, it does just that!
Although toted as a colorless finish I feel like it has a very slight tint which should match many skin tones but may appear a tad on the chalky side if you have olive or darker skin.
The product is housed in a twist top jar. Unscrew the lid to reveal a sponge and a lift up lid which hides the cream beneath. I like the design alot as I feel it’ll travel well without breaking.
You can use this one of two ways. Go ahead and smooth it on your face to even your skin tone and brighten your face sans foundation or use it under your foundation as a base. If you have a darker skin tone you can easily use as a base and follow up with your foundation to minimize the white cast you might see after use.
The formula is creamy yet lightweight so it smooths on and leaves behind a beautifully soft finish. Not a mattifying one but more like a smooth, hydrating one. It looks gorgeous on my drier skin and really brightens up my face and casts it in a beautiful light (you’ll see me wearing it sans foundation in my next review, truly it gives a stunning finish even without foundation).
Considering I don’t use a ton of foundation, I like to use this on its own as it works perfectly as a foundation of sorts and eases dullness beautifully while leaving behind brighter skin and a smooth finish for my makeup.
I can gush on and on about how amazing this makes my skin look but another important key to the product is the fact that it sports an SPF 24. Quite a nice sun protection for a cream base.
Nothing at all bad here!
- Anyone with dull skin that needs a pick me up!
- Those with tired, stressed out skin!
- Those who feel like their foundation just isn’t doing the trick (use this under it and experience a new lease on your foundation life).
- Those who brighter more flawless skin!
- Those with olive or darker skin (you won’t be able to use alone but as a base it’ll work perfectly).
I absolutely loved this and can’t gush enough. Sadly, it’s displaying as out of stock on Sephora at the moment but I hope it’ll pop up again soon as I need to stock up! I’m dubbing it one of my favorites from Shiseido at the moment as anything that eases my dullness and brightens my skin is a friend of mine!
YOU NEED this.
Loves it and slap a high recommendation and Muse Approval on it! I’ll be getting a second one as soon as Sephora restocks!
