Dewy, glass-like skin is the look of the moment but for those with oily skin, that may not necessarily be what you strive for. If you find yourself constantly blotting your T-zone or touching up with powder to minimise the greasiness, what you really need is a mattifying setting spray.


Enter the unlimited mattifying makeup-fix mist by shu uemura. Trust us when we say that this will become your new favourite go-to product for long-lasting shine control.

Read on to find out more about this new product – and how it’ll keep the shine at bay, while giving you a flawless look all day!

Retouch-free for 24 hours

You know the feeling: you have a full face of makeup on and head outdoors – but within a couple of hours, everything melts off and your face resembles an oil slick. The struggle is real.

Say goodbye to all that with the unlimited mattifying makeup-fix mist. As the latest addition to shu uemura’s best-selling unlimited line-up, this setting spray promises to keep your makeup in place and control shine for 24 hours – no touch-ups necessary.

That’s right! 24 hours of flawless finish that’ll keep your makeup looking fresh and makeup colours like your eyeshadow and blush looking vibrant all day-long. It is also sweat-, sebum- and transfer-resistant, thanks to the mist’s innovative formula which contains micro silicone powder and polymer to keep everything locked into place. 


Unlike other setting sprays which can make your makeup look dry or cakey, the unlimited mattifying makeup-fix mist gives a soft, velvety finish. The infusion of Japanese rice extract derivatives and tsubaki oil helps to moisturise and condition the skin – leaving it plump and hydrated too. So whether you have oily or combination skin, this mist will suit you just fine.

The icing on the cake?  Like all shu uemura products, it’s all about the sensorial experience. The unlimited mattifying makeup-fix mist feels incredibly luxurious on the skin. It dispenses an ultra-fine transparent micro-mist that forms a lightweight protective veil over your face, without appearing wet or greasy. To make your makeup application even more enjoyable, the mist also has a relaxing Japanese hinoki-inspired fragrance. When sprayed, it imbues aromatic woody notes for a truly indulgent experience. 

For makeup that stays put all day, a mattifying setting spray is certainly a must-have. But if you want to level up your makeup game for a truly flawless finish, here’s how in four easy steps:

Step 1: Prep your skin

Before applying any makeup, you need a clean canvas – skin that is hydrated and prepped for the next steps. That’s where a primer comes in. 

The unlimited block:booster protective moisture primer SPF50+ PA+++ is the ultimate multi-tasking primer that is specially developed for Asian skin to beautify, block, and boost in just one product. Innovative spectrapearl technology helps to correct and enhance your complexion for a translucent radiance, while the mineral-rich DepSea Water moisturises and nourishes the skin. It also offers UV and pollution adherence protection with SPF50+ PA+++

Step 2: Get a full but natural coverage

A good foundation is the crux of any makeup routine to give your skin a fresh, flawless, and even coverage. Our go-to choice? shu uemura’s award-winning unlimited breathable lasting foundation. 

Like its name suggests, this 18-hour liquid foundation with SPF 24 PA+++ allows your skin to breathe, while giving a light coverage with a semi-matte finish. That’s because it contains a fusion of 81% skincare and protecting emulsion infused with Japanese organic rice extract to moisturise the skin. What’s more, the unlimited’s unique stretchable texture holds pigments in place while absorbing sebum and sweat for a fresh look all day long. 

To apply the foundation, simply use your fingertips or the best-selling petal 55 foundation brush, which contains 189, 000 bristles for a poreless and streak-free finish.

Step 3: Set your makeup

After applying your makeup, it’s inevitable that you might have some greasiness in unwanted areas like your T-zone and chin. ‘Erase’ any unwanted shine with a mattifying setting powder such as the unlimited mopo breathable fixing loose powder.

This ultra lightweight powder is infused with Japan-made red pearl pigment, tsubaki oil and rice extract: 3 ingredients that help to brighten your skin, while giving it a smooth and translucent finish. More importantly, it instantly fixes and locks your makeup into place so it will not budge all day.

To apply, press the unlimited mopo breathable fixing loose powder gently onto your face with the puff included in the case. Then, dust off any excess powder with brush 27.

Step 4: Finish with a spritz

Last but certainly not least, complete your look with the unlimited mattifying makeup-fix mist. This is key to ensure your makeup stays shine-free and in place all day, even if you’re perspiring under the hot sun. 

To apply the unlimited mattifying makeup-fix mist, first shake the bottle. Keep it at least 15 cm away from your face and mist all over your face evenly 2 to 3 times. You can also use it in the middle of the day to refresh your makeup and keep your skin hydrated.

The shu uemura unlimited range, including the new unlimited mattifying makeup-fix mist, is available at shu uemura boutiques at ION Orchard and Bugis Junction, as well as TANGS, Takashimaya, Metro, and Isetan department stores, and Sephora. For more information, visit
