NEW Shu Uemura Face Architect Sheer Refining Mousse Foundation & Pro Gel Cealer [Pictures, Information]


Shu Uemura will be releasing 2 new products to their base range, a new foundation and matching concealer this June.

The Face Architect sheer refining mousse foundation is similar to the current product in their collection - the famous UV mousse base, which I have previously featured HERE.

The innovative mousse texture of foundation is something I am super excited to try out.  It promises a 'mistake-proof finish'.

In this entry, I will show you product pictures, and information.  The next entry will contain swatches, application & initial impressions.


The foundation will retail for $78 and contains 65g of product. [total 5 shades]

  • create a barely-there canvas with ease, this new formula provides a sheer veil with effective coverage and exquisite moisture


  • experience sensational comfort with this sheer foundation as light as air, this natural-coverage mousse glides on evenly for a mistake-proof finish


  • build an exquisite base with flawless coverage to support your makeup desires


  • face architect refining mousse foundation now takes you further into the limitless realm of beauty, go beyond ordinary foundations for a truly natural look



Patent-pending stabilblized foam formula which evenly suspends ultra-fine powders.  Minimise pores and prevents shine.

Skincare Benefits

Water Lily extracts gives anti-oxidant protection while hyaluronic acid and depsea water provide long lasting moisture





Next, we have the Pro Gel Cealer - yes, that's quite an interesting name!

It has a unique formula, and has a sweat and sebum resistant film.

It will retail for S$48 for 5g [available in 5 shades]

  • gel concealers 'fit and fix' imperfections of any shade and size


  • 3 phase volatile system enhances the formula to create a uniform, thin yet highly effective veil with excellent affinity to the skin


  • pro gel cealer's unique formula offers buildable texture and a natural finish with professional precision


  • its sweat and sebum-resistant film provides the ultimate long lasting wear


  • feel and see the benefits of this concealer's thin layer of coverage, which can be achieved only with gel



3-phase evaporation system of evanescent carriers which quickly but progressively 'sets' the product for a durable and perfect fit



Suggested usage / tools for application:

The pro gel cealer brush [naturals portable 4R] sable haired short handled brush.  $40 each.

Use this convenient portable brush to smooth pro gel cealer on to your skin.  Its rounded tips ensure remarkable coverage.  Suitable to even out the outline of the formula, beautifully maintaining the high coverage of pro gel cealer due to the round tips.

That's all, and I hope this has been informative!  Stay tuned for the next entry which contains the swatches, application and my initial thoughts!

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.
