Shiseido Revital Granas Foundation Watery


Revital Granas is a fairly new skincare and base makeup line by Shiseido, targeting Japanese women in their 30s looking to maintain their youth and beauty as they age. For Spring, Revital Granas has released a liquid foundation, powder foundation, makeup base and highlighter for the perfect glow. A sample of the Foundation Watery (PF) in OC02 was included in the 2009 May issue of Voce.


Foundation Watery is SPF 19 and PA++. Unlike many other liquid foundations, Revital Granas' foundation comes with a sponge for application. Like it's name, the foundation is "watery" and thin. This makes it extremely light and easy to smooth across the skin. Very little product is required to cover the face so a single bottle of the foundation is likely to last you a long time. It also holds up against sweat and hides pores without clogging. Foundation Watery provides medium-light, matte coverage and like Maquiliquide UV Infinité, dries as a powder foundation. Although I did not experience any flaking, the foundation did dry my cheeks ever so slightly and began to disappear after a while. It also had a very powdery appearance that made it look somewhat unnatural. OC02 has a yellow-orange base and is lighter than Maquillage, Lunasol, and Lancôme's OC02 shades. I'm not sure that this is a product I would recommend but it is much lighter and less drying than most liquid foundations I have tried. Its thin texture is particularly suited for spring and summer weather. 6090 Yen (including tax).
