Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation ($45.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is the newest liquid foundation from Shiseido. It’s a follow-up to Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation from last year. Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation is–you guessed it–a dewier formula that’s supposed to give a “dewy glow without any shine” with “buildable coverage” and a “serum-like texture.” It also featured broad spectrum SPF 20 and is supposed to have “8-hour hydration.”

You can find your shade in the Foundation Matrix or see below for swatches of the shade range:

Sponsored: Check out HSN’s The Beauty Spy

HSN’s The Beauty Spy is all about finding the newest beauty trends, secrets, and innovative products from around the world–and bringing them to your screen. Chelsea Scott, the founder of the show and a long-time beauty industry professional, and her team of experts, have been scouring the globe for new and interesting products. The first show debuts March 30th, 7PM EST and will feature products discovered in South Korea and Ireland.

Here’s what to expect on the upcoming show:

Gua Lifting Stick | Scott discovered this product on their last trip to South Korea and learned that it is based on an Asian massage technique called Gua Sha. It’s supposed to work by “massaging the skin and delivering natural extracts and anti-aging ingredients to give your face an instantly firmer and lifted appearance” says Scott.

Batti Lip Jelly Tint | This was another discovery in South Korea, which applies as a thick layer, dries, and then can be peeled off.

Tan Organic | Scott says this was found in Ireland, and “it’s the world’s first certified-organic self-tanner” that is “hydrating” and “gives [a] deep bronze tan.” The brand features self-tanning lotions, oils, and mitts, along with a multi-purpose dry oil.
