Shu Uemura White Efficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse

Ok fan girls, life as we knew it was potentially over when Mitchell was staked by George. But to add salt to our open wounds we lost George and Nina.

Oh my god. Was Tobey trying to reinvent the wheel? That was 75% of the show.

But I have to admit after catching up on the latest eppy of Being Human I am absolutely thrilled with Hal. And I’ve always loved Tom but introducing Hal to the mix is sheer genius. You have Tom, a dumb but lovable lycan and you have Hal, an aristocratic elder vampire with a bad case of OCD. This is a match made in heaven.

What do you think so far? I love this new family. I’m not even missing Mitchell and George GASP! As pointed out so elegantly, the hole in my heart has closed.

By the way, is anyone lemming the new Shu Uemura White Efficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse? I am!

This launched in Japan already I believe so I’m holding my breath and eagerly anticipating the release in the US.

Shu Uemura White Efficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse is a pink lilac based mousse primer of sorts that brightens skin while offering an SPF 30. This contains Vitamin C Derivative and Shu’s own Mito-White Agent (Algae White + Prune Extract) to treat dark spots while making your entire face brighter.

Shu developed the pink-purple shade with “trans-glow complex” and a combination of “pure blue light” for anti-yellow effect plus “inner-glow-agent” for exquisite rosiness. As a result, this achieves a translucent and rosy complexion

Sounds like a while lot going on and I’m unsure if it’ll work for many skin tones but I’m dead curious.

Hopefully we get it here in the US soon!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I am so neutral in tone, I am not sure if creating rosiness is the look I am going for, especially if my neck is one color and my face looks pink, lol.

    I was worried when George died too, but Tom really saves the show. I like how the cast got revamped, but in the end you still end up with the “Trinity” Ghost-Werewolf, Vampire.
