Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation Review

A smart, oil-free, long-lasting foundation that beautifully enhances your complexion. Maintains skin’s clarity while preventing shine, creasing and fading all day long.

Flawlessly undetectable like it belongs to your skin, this innovative formula with medium, buildable coverage and a modern matte, natural finish feels uniquely airy and silky on skin.

Synchro-skin is an ok foundation for me. Decent color match, untroubled application, looks fine. Medium coverage that definitely needs concealer afterwards for pigmentation.

Not the best longevity especially around the nose and no oil control. Again, it looks fine and I’ll use it up.

The texture of the Synchro Skin foundation is light, liquid and easy to blend. Coverage however, is medium to full, despite the lightweight texture.

It also dries down a little matte, which I expected from its name. Anything that says “lasting” or “long-lasting” usually offers a matte or semi-matte texture.

As someone with very oily skin that has to blot often, this is a nice foundation. I must admit that it is a more “obvious” foundation, it’s on the thicker side with a semi matte finish.

I find that throughout the day my oils and sweats don’t cause this foundation to break up or go splotchy and it does not come off with blotting.

It applies very easily (I think it looks betters with a sponge) and my makeup layers nicely on top. I think this overall a solid foundation.


Shake before use. Apply after skincare, smoothing on evenly from the center of the face outward and build to your desired coverage with additional layers.
