Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector

{ Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector }

For anyone with pale skin, you will understand the struggle and frustration to find make-up fair enough to appear natural on the skin. The majority of BB creams are far too dark or peach toned, or suggest "one tone suits all," which we all know is a lie.

The Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector boasts a 5-in-1 "ultimate complexion" inspired by backstage make-up. This BB cream works as a primer, concealer, and illuminating base to create a natural complexion with a light-medium coverage and SPF30 and PA++ protection. The unscented formula blends easily to even out skin tone, disguise blemishes, and correct discolouration, meaning on a good day you won't need a concealer. The cream has a lovely consistency making it easy to work with, blending into the skin providing a slight dewiness that can be mattified with powder or worn as is. The Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector won't oxidise throughout the day, doesn't crack or cake on the skin, and doesn't affect the colour of other make-up.

On a negative note, the Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector only comes in one shade, although this would suit a variety of complexions depending on how it's used. There is also very minimal oil control, making it most suitable for normal/dry skin types.

I wear the Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector almost daily, either on its own to blur imperfections and throw a veil over tiredness, or as a priming base for heavier make-up; it lets the character of a face shine through while doing a good job of hiding what needs to be hidden. This is the best BB cream I have ever tried, every claim the Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector makes it lives up to and if you're struggling to find a high quality BB cream, I would 100% recommend trying this.

  1. Oh this I haven't seen before! Such a good review Sophie! But a single shade of anything doesn't normally match up to my skin tone.. will try this one out if I get an opportunity!


  2. I would love to try this but single shades never work for me! x

  5. Wow this sounds amazing! One shade is a shame though, but the formula sounds divine.

  6. The one shade thing shouldn't put you off; one shade normally never suits me either but this stuff is AMAZING, it's light and neutral toned. Anyone with pale or fair skin should be able to use it, whether they have yellow OR pink undertones.

  7. There are hardly any reviews! It's such a great bb cream too!

  8. I use this with the NARS Creamy Concealer.. which is annoying it isn't available to you! Can you get ahold of the Origins concealer? I have heard that is just as good.

  9. Ah, I don't know much about oily skin to be fair.. and this product isn't really for oily skin anyway. I'm usually put off by the 'one shade' creams but this one would really work well for a whole range of skin tones.

  10. They never work for me either because I am SUPER pale.. but this would honestly suit A LOT of skin tones because of the multitasking way it works, which is why I am so amazed by it.

  11. They normally don't suit me either because I am so pale.. but honestly, it's working testing it at a counter if you can. It's really amazing how it blends without leaving a cast or a tint on the skin. I could see it working for a lot of skin tones depending on whether you use it as a straight up bb cream or a primer.

  12. I didn't know I needed this... until now. Though you are spot on about BBs never being pale enough - why do companies think we want to be both dewy and orange every time?

  13. "Dewy and orange" is THE perfect description!
