Shu Uemura - Face Architect Illuminating Moisture Fluid Foundation

 As you probably all know, I prefer the  dewy, natural look, but it's hard to find a natural looking foundation that also has decent coverage, and in Shu Uemura - Face Architect Illuminating Moisture Fluid Foundation I  found both.
The foundation itself provides satisfying coverage and is buildable, and it is a good mix between creamy and liquid, and does a decent job at smoothing out pores. I really find that the foundation brightens the whole face and looks absolutely amazing in photography.
I like to apply the foundation with a damp sponge, which really gives my face flawless finish. You could also dilute it by mixing it with your moisturizer to get a sheerer, even more natural look.
The foundation shade selection is good but is mostly yellow based, so it is a great match for Asian skin types or skin with yellow undertones or it’s also great if you have lot of redness in your face.
 Think this foundation would be great mature or for dryer skin types, I probably wouldn’t recommend it to someone who is acne prone or has oily skin, as the shine can emphasize imperfections.
 As mentioned before, the finish is very dewy. I like the dewy look, so I only powder my forehead and chin. I do tend to get a little oily by midday, but a little blotting solves the problem.
One thing that I dislike that it has a strong chemical smell, but the smell doesn't linger all day or anything, just at first when you put it on.

Here in Ireland, the foundation costs 38 Euro for 30 ml, but a little goes long way,  and I rarely have to use a full pump to cover my whole face.
Have you ever tried the Shu Uemura's Face Architect Illuminating Moisture Fluid Foundation yet?
