Shiseido has been a household name for as long as I could remember. Browsing through women’s magazines since the age of 12 and I would see Shiseido’s products mentioned every now and then. Now, the brand is still going on strong and has introduced a new player in the cushion compact game – Synchro Skin Glow Cushion Compact, its first ever cushion compact that comes in 5 shades to suit skin tones in every fair to medium skin spectrum, great for the East Asian women.
So what actually makes this cushion compact much more special than other cushion compacts in the market? Other than being an everyday essential through its light and moisturizing formula, this cushion compact aims to deliver fresh, dewy, dreamy skin using their Responsive Sensory Technology. It has a Smart Skin Condition and Tone correction to maintain beautiful, hydrated appearance sans the shine or greasiness.
I started the day of review by applying the Synchro Skin Glow Cushion Compact after my moisturizing cream. Most foundation would leave my skin dry immediately and the foundation would turn grey and not settle into my skin properly. However, this cushion compact did not take long to settle in and spread an even veil over the skin. It also acts as a skin defense by preventing damage to the skin caused by dryness, oxidization and UV exposure.
This cushion compact not only corrects imperfections with its coverage (it’s great enough to cover my acne scars but not leave a thick uneven layer of visible color), it also covers my open pores enough for it to not be very visible. The Advanced Sensing technology adapts to each individual skin condition!
It maintained my skin’s moisture with its Super Bio-Moisture Network and the Glow Enhancing & Time Match powder diffuses light according to the change in sebum levels.
It’s also super easy to use – just press the puff into the sponge pot, pat it over the face after your skin care routine from the center of the face towards the outer corners and build coverage as desired with additional layers, and you’re ready to go! It’s also easy to apply throughout the day if needed as you just #PressPatSlay.
I have personally tried this product and I am absolutely in love with it. It’s a great version of the Synchro Skin Foundation in a compact cushion so you could have skin that slays on the go. The finish is consistent, easy to blend and stays on for hours. Check out how my skin stays even after hours of wearing this without any touch ups!
