have you ever been surprised by how your skin looks so different under different light? like in the morning in the bathroom mirror compared to when you step out doors? or when you’re under fluorescent office light or out at night, in dimly lit bars and restaurants?

“visible light” is commonly describes by its color temperature, which gives a numerical value (Kelvin [k]) to the color of light. skin tone also looks different depending on the lighting source, its condition and how light is projected etc.

Please do watch the video by Shu Uemura:


I know a lot of you have heard of this product, try and play with the sponge or even bought them. They are indeed worth the price, the simplicity of using them and effectiveness is just wonderful. I put so much expectation on the product and it pays off. The lightness, coverage ability and how it make my skin looks so beautiful, two thumbs up!!

There are 10 shades in total, mine is in 774. There are several tone base, pinkish, beige and yellow. Please do go into the nearest shu uemura counter if you want to found out the shade match to yours.


There are a few steps before using the lightbulb, start from a clean face, toner, serum and moisturizer. A sun protection like from the mousse base also needed during the day. Then apply lightbulb accordingly. The video above will help you a lot if you're clueless or just want to see how the pro did it. I found them super easy and fool-proved. The one that I think need to be mastered is the amount of product used, since it is according to one's facial wideness (haha, is it a correct word to say?!)

Let's start shall we?!


Above is my before look, the secret heart is hiding my red angry acne. Everything us unhidden here, the uneven skin tone, several blemishes, fine lines and other imperfections. In a matter of minutes, lightbulb able to cover all that with it's airy touch and feeling as seen below.


The whole area receive the same amount of light wherever they are and the large pores, fine lines and other imperfections is covered, the redness of my angry acne as well. But it wont be covering the 'bump' it has. And below, you may see the result after powder and other makeup is applied. I really love the result and the skin still feels so light, like wearing nothing.
