I ran out of my Chanel UV Essentiel SPF 50 recently, and instead of repurchasing it, I went ahead and picked up the Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 PA+++.  I must say that I am quite impressed with this one.  It is very similar to the Chanel UV Essentiel in color and also very runny in texture, but I think Shiseido melds into my skin a bit smoother and dries faster to the touch.  I also like that it's oil-free and leaves my face with no shine.

The best part of this foundation?  It is amazing as a base!  My makeup does not budge for hours when I use this as a primer.  I know with the high SPF it is not as photo-friendly, but I noticed in the picture above that I got less flashback with this sunscreen as opposed to Chanel.  I do use a different primer for the night time if need be, and for that I reach for the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, which I also love.

I think I may repurchase this one when it runs out.  It is budget-friendlier than the Chanel UV Essentiel, after all.  I think it also performs just as well, if not better, as a primer.
