The words "architect," "remodeling," and "foundation" don't really bring makeup to my mind. So by its name, you might expect Shu Uemura's new Face Architect Remodeling Cream Foundation ($45) to literally rearrange your face (but not in the way your big brother threatened to). While it may not do that it certainly does more than the average foundation (with its price tag, it ought to).
With SPF 10 and antioxidant rich Jasmine extract, the creamy, lightly scented formula feels like it's good for your skin. The company materials describe the coverage as "medium to full," but when I put it on I was reminded of the time when my best friend thought my Amazing Concealer was foundation — meaning a little goes a looooooong way. I mean, when a foundation comes with an applicator spatula, it means business.
