Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++ Review & Swatches

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse was recently released in Japan. We haven’t seen this one here in the US but fans of Shu’s original UV Mousse will be quite familiar with this one.

The original Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Mousse offered SPF 30 and came in a soft, mousse formula that absorbed easily. I don’t think they actually carry it anymore in the US but don’t quote me, it’s been a while since I explored Shu’s master line.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse simply adds the benefits of whitening to the mix. So if you’re looking to brighten, whiten, or ease dullness on your face it might be one you’d select over the original UV base.

Take a look!

Lotree BB Primer Tinted Control Base Review & Swatches

Lotree BB Primer Tinted Control Base 2

Lotree is one of (of many) Korea’s more visually pleasing brands as I like to call them. This is a brand that really pays close attention to it’s packaging and wraps things up in a royal purple and silver gorgeousness that simply reeks elegance.

My experience with the brand hasn’t always been pleasant. The packaging is a little misleading as how can anything wrapped in purple and silver prove awful? But indeed, like many Korea brands the fancy packaging doesn’t always lead to a superior formula.

However, there’s been a product or two that’s popped up at me and became a keeper.

Lotree BB Primer Tinted Control Base SPF 21 is one such product.
