      Comments about Sheer Matifying Compact:

      Please Shiseido don't discontinue this particular foundation... I live in the UK and it is becoming increasingly difficult to get it on London department store's websites but maybe it's because I am buying all the stock! But why is it not being replenished...
      I wish Shiseido USA would ship to the UK...
      Please keep making it. I have tried the new sheer and perfect compact foundation but it is nowhere near as good and not even the same colour tone despite being the same shade O60..
      Thank you

      Comments about Sheer Matifying Compact:

      With much regret I write you that this shipment never arrived, in spite of having received a notice by e-mail that it was delivered. Was the fault FedEx's or Shiseido's?

      Would it be possible for you, please, to refill the order and try again to send it?

      With best regards ...

        Comments about Sheer Matifying Compact:

        I use the Very Rich Brown shade and I love it! The texture is so smooth! I also bought the Rich Brown shade to brighten my under-eye area when it starts to look a bit sleepy.

        It's a light to medium coverage for me, feels light-weight, and evens out my skin tone. It blends very nicely with blush and looks flawless when applied over liquid foundation.

        I bought this mainly to reduce the oily shine of my t-zone, and it definately helps! Doesn't break me out or cause me to become more oily. I highly recommend this product for anyone with oily skin.
