Quick Pick: Mamechiyo for Shu Uemura Under Base Mousse BB


How pretty?!  This cute little can contains a limited edition Shu Uemura Under Base Mousse and has been designed by Mamechiyo, a cult kimono designer known for her blend of retro motifs, Western patterns, and kawaii influences.  It looks so cute sitting on my dressing table - amidst a sea of cleanly packaged products packaged with one hue, it really stands out.

Inside, the usual Under Base Mousse formula has been given a little bit of a BB twist.  Shu Uemura claims that it refines pores, evens the skin tone, and reduces redness, and it can be used under foundation or alone.  It's reasonably light and ashy in colour, and I've found that it's perfect alone for a largely matte but incredibly bright and even effect (as you can see below, in a recent FOTD).


Mamechiyo has also stamped some incredibly striking designs onto other classic Shu Uemura products, including pink toned and the classic beige varieties of the Under Base Mousse, a foundation case, and the iconic cleansing oils.  If you like the look of the Under Base Mousse BB, though, you'll find it at Shu concessions and stores, and online via their website, where it will cost you £29.

    1. The only difficulty is that it can look too mask like if you use too much. Reasonably easy to not use too much though :)
