For those who are not familiar with the Future Solution LX series from Shiseido, this is the prestige line from the Japanese beauty brand synonymous with luxury high-performance skincare products with anti-aging benefits.
This year, this skincare range has launched two make-up products – a liquid foundation and loose powder. But true to its philosophy to marry leading technology and research, these two new items are “make-up with benefits”, infused with t>he signature and exclusive Skingenecell 1P to counteract the appearance of future aging, as well as 4MSK, an innovative brightening ingredient for a luminous, even skin tone.

Indeed, I aspire to present an ambitious post today covering the latest loose powder, compact as well as liquid foundation products!
Before I begin, here are some quick notes on the different type of foundation powder for people who are less familiar with makeup:
Loose powder: Least amount of coverage, usually dusted over the liquid foundation to make your makeup look matte and more long-lasting.
Foundation compact: Powder foundation that typically gives good coverage and can be used on its own or after a makeup base. Foundation compact is more lightweight and easy to apply, but can look more “cakey” on your skin.
Liquid foundation: This provides the best coverage and very smooth finish. The downside is that the liquid foundation seeps deeper into your pores and therefore less desirable for the skin.
