Review Shu Umera The Lightbulb Foundation

Hi again all-
This product peaked my interest when I saw a bunch of bloggers reviewing it and LOVING IT!  So like any good foundation junkie, I went online followed their color matching and bought it.  At the time the only place that you could buy this was directly from Shu Umera.  Now there are a few extra places- I have listed them below.
Overall the short of this is just that I was not wow'd with this foundation like so many others.  I think that it is a nice foundation for someone with more of a dry skin.  I have combination skin and this just looked streaky and strange on me.  Now i did try it with the sponge that came with it and I didn't like the sponge either.  I prefer the beauty blender if I do use a sponge.  Can I also mention- WHY did they make this sponge white???  Yuck- so hard to clean.  I also tried my fingers and a brush, but it just didn't want to work for me.  :O(  I was so bummed.
I did send this to a friend of mine that I thought it would be better suited for and she does seem to really like it so far.
Here are some photos of the product and some swatches of how it looked on my skin.

Here is the breakdown of my thoughts on this product:

Pigmentation- 4/5
Texture- 3/5
Longevity- 2/5
Application- 3/5
Packaging- 3/5
Price- 3/5
Product Overall- 3/5

  • Shu Umera
