Get fresh and flawless-looking skin in a swipe of these new product additions to the Shiseido Synchro Skin makeup line.
When it comes to a healthy complexion and flawless finish, J-beauty brand Shiseido instantly comes to mind. The prominent beauty house has constantly merged skincare and makeup in its creations and now it ups the game with the latest additions to the Synchro Skin collection, which incorporates advanced formulas designed to withstand environmental conditions for that natural, second-skin effect.
Synchro Skin Tone Up Primer Compact
Infused with a high-tech formula, the Tone Up Primer Compact promises a brighter, smoother, younger-looking complexion. This rose-tinted primer, housed in a sophisticated pastel pink compact to match, hydrates the skin for a glowy finish. The combination of moisturising hyaluronic acid, antioxidant wild thyme extract, and Smart Correcting Powder gives off a poreless appearance. Furthermore, a trio of illuminating pearls work to correct dull skin while Time Match Powder tackles excess oil and SPF24/PA++ protects against damaging UV rays. Our favourite part about this particular primer is in its 3-in-1 use. Wear this weightless formula alone for a blurred effect; prep your skin with it for a long-lasting foundation wear; or apply over your makeup for a boost of radiance. A multipurpose primer? Yes please!
Synchro Skin Glow Cushion Compact
Encased in a Shiseido Red case, the ultra-slim Glow Cushion Compact is perfect for the woman on the go. Available in eight shades, it guarantees fresh, moisturised and radiant skin lasting up to eight hours, thanks to the Responsive Sensory Technology as well as a blend of hyaluronic acid and hydro-sensing polymers. Not only is the use of SPF23, antioxidant wild thyme extract and St. John’s-wort effective against UV exposure and dryness, the glow-enhancing powder and Time Match Powder also works hand in hand in diffusing light, blurring imperfections and combating excess oil.
Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Custom Finish Powder Foundation
Developed with ActiveForce Technology, Shiseido’s newly-formulated Custom Finish Powder Foundation ensures a finishing effect that is like your very own skin, all while holding up against heat, humidity and motion. Lasting up to 24 hours, the powder foundation is saturated with SPF35/PA++++, antioxidant-rich wild thyme extract, light-reflecting pearl extract and hyaluronic acid for instant hydration. Breathable, blendable and buildable, this creamy yet weightless foundation is composed of Smart Correcting Powder to enhance skin’s texture and tone, and a composite of Time Match Powder, Self-Repair Gel, and ActiGel Polymers provides that ‘self-refreshing’ look. Inspired by Ki (the Japanese concept of life force energy), this powder foundation is available in 16 shades that claims to stay true all day in spite of environmental circumstances and it can be applied either wet or dry to suit your personal preference. Packed in a contemporary black case and beautified with the label’s signature red stripe, this is a must-have for the modern woman living in the city.
The Shiseido Synchro Skin range is available at all Shiseido stores and counters nationwide.
