Thank you, Shiseido, for bringing back..
I got dizzy and settled for whatever i found anywhere when this product was discontinued. I signed in here specifically to thank shiseido for bringing this product back. This is the only foundation OR powder I use on a daily basis. I don't need or want anything else. I have used this for 15 + years and don't write reviews. However, I had to find a way to say thank you. When i received the notice in the mail that this was coming back, I felt they knew I was searching for it and they personally mailed me to let me know. This is not just about a beauty product. When it was discontinued, I felt sick because I knew I would break out again and my face would melt from any other foundation I used. This one goes right into your skin and does not budge or smudge throughout the day. I have used evereything while it was gone, from Bobbi brown to laura mercier to Dior Forever (they were a runner -up, but they also changed their foundation--shame on them) to other shiseido products (which i do not like by the way and would never buy), NONE of which satisfied even the basic requirements of a foundation. I use this product dry. This one makes me look like I am not wearing a lot of makeup, but still changes all the flaws in my face completely and covers everything, and in the end, yes, my family and I know I am definitely wearing a lot of make-up, because they have seen me without make-up, but others don't know I am wearing foundation. It lasts for a day and a half if I don't touch it. I use it for party occasions AND for staying home to get rid of my redness and blotchiness. I just use very little if I am at home and a little more when I go out. It is quick to put on and blends with my skin so that it looks like skin. Friends ask me all the time whether I am wearing makeup and tell me i have great skin, when in fact I don 't have good skin. I have red, blotchy skin and it is sensitive. There is nothing negative about the product itself. The only thing is about the amount of product contained in a refill--that is my only complaint. I feel like the new batches are drying out more quickly and leave bubbles in the foundation itself, even though I don't wet it (you could if you want, though). Then, I have to scoop it out of the round container and use it from a square tin so that I have more room when I am placing it on the sponge.This is more of a presentation complaint than the foundation itself. This is the best make-up product in the world and I felt my face could not breathe when this product was discontinued. Please do not ever discontinue this product again! All the people I know who use this say it is not as if we would go and buy other products from shiseido just because this one is take off the market. We wouldn't. Other products are too expensive and leave a ghostly powdery presence that rubs everywhere on your skin. This one goes INTO your skin without enlarging your pores, without being creamy, too powdery, or too light. It gives very good coverage and does not budge. I even went swimming with it on and it still looks natural when I come out of the water. Please PLease Please do not discontinue this again, and I will be a loyal customer for the rest of my "face" life !! « less
