A new addition to Shu Uemura’s stand-out Lightbulb range of foundations that are made to give skin a glow that seems candle-lit.
The Lightbulb Aerial is a powder compact that offers light to medium coverage.
The finely-milled powders soften the appearance of imperfections, and do not leave skin with a powdery, white cast.
As compared to the other two products in the Lightbulb range, this compact has the most matte texture, albeit with a subtle pearlescent finish. It also has SPF 13 PA ++.
I prefer to use it with a kabuki brush as a finishing powder, or with the flocked side of the complementary Lightbulb sponge for a light touch.
In comparison, the Lightbulb UV compact (SPF 30 PA +++)gives skin high to medium coverage, and a polished porcelain-like glow.
While the original Lightbulb fluid offers high coverage and a megawatt, dewy glow.
