I always stock up on Shu Uemura when I’m in Asia. Sure, you can buy all of it online (I refill throughout the year this way), but how can I pass on trying out the new products at the beauty counter? My favorite find this go-around has been the POREraser. In fact, “favorite” is not the right word – this has been lifesaving. It’s so humid here that foundation is completely out of the question. With the constant sweating, full coverage would clog your pores and be just plain uncomfortable. Even back home where it’s arid, it’s nice to have a lightweight look during the day. The mousse is a pore minimizing foundation base and with the SPF 35 I’m getting protection from the sun without having to slather on sunscreen. It has a slight tint and the beige shade adjusts to match your skin (the other shade is pink), so even though the POREraser’s not a full-on foundation, it evens out my tone. Best of all, it feels like nothing on your skin! Though I won’t be throwing out my foundation out anytime soon, for days when you feel like minimizing, this little bottle is pure magic. Available on Amazon for $49.
