Rated 5 out of 5 by DLK52 An Instant Face Lift but WITHOUT the Pain!
I bought this product about 18 months ago. it's been sitting wrapped in my beauty closet until the other day. I had never tried it before and to tell you the truth, forgot I even had it. So when I spotted it while rearranging my products, I thought it was time to give it a go.
I was blown away. Never have I seen such an instant, drastic transformation of my skin in only the most positive ways.
My intent was to use it as a primer. However, once applied, foundation would have ruined the glorious results, such as tightening of the skin, skin laxity greatly diminished, completely even skin tone, a dewy, luminous, brightening appearance I've never achieved from products 5 times the cost of this one.
I almost didn't recognize myself. I have no affiliation with Shu, am not paid or given any products for the purpose of writing positive reviews. I'm just your ordinary Joe, one who rarely writes reviews because I have little patience to do so. But since this product was so exceptional, pure magic, I had to share it with my SHU family so others can take advantage of the present sale to test it out for themselves. I plan on purchasing at least 3 or 4 more units and pray SHU won't run out before I can place my order.
This product baffles me in that I don't quite understand how it works. When you squeeze the product out from the container, it's clearish/white in color. But somehow, it seems to even the skin tone, behaving like a foundation but without emphasizing every pore or line on your face as foundations often do. And when removing it at the end of the day, what seems to be foundation appears on my make up pad.
This product applies like pure silk, is very soft and creamy and as one who ALWAYS uses way too much of any beauty or skincare product, regardless of what it is, only a pea size amount is required to cover my entire face, in my opinion, creating a flawless look. This product remained on my skin for over 16 hours, which is when I removed it to go to sleep and I'm sure it would have lasted much longer if I stayed out partying for the evening, looking just as fresh and amazing at the end of the day as it did when first applied.
I initially applied foundation to a small area on my face after using the Stage Performer as a primer but felt it diminished the glow and pristine look I had achieved using it alone. As such I removed everything but the Stage Performer, adding only a few dabs of creme blush to highlight my cheekbones.
For the first time in a while, I felt beautiful and received a few catcalls from men on the street, which really stroked my ego.
I give this product the highest accolades and hope that since there is a wonderful sale on the SHU UEMURA SITE presently, it's the perfect opportunity to try Stage Performer Instant Glow, or any other SHU products you've had your eyes on, at these deeply discounted prices.
I can't imagine anyone disagreeing with my product assessment for Stage Performer.
I also have the stage performer signs-off, which I purchased at the same time as the Stage Performer, which also has never been opened. But I can assure you I will be trying that product tomorrow and am sure the results will be just as impressive.
If I could give this product 10 stars, I would. This is a miracle cream made by one of the most renowned cosmetic companies in the world, known for their make up but particularly their skincare.
Why not give SHU UEMURA's Stage Performer Instant Glow a chance? The only thing you have to lose are a few wrinkles! And I doubt that would upset anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lauraro Perfect for 'no makeup' makeup; feels great on skin
I love Stage Performer! I find it most effective when used alone on my skin (though it's also effective under makeup, it has a beautiful finish that gets lost when it's the bottom layer). It gives a perfect glowy look without looking overdone, and feels absolutely incredible on! Maybe too pricy, but really good stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dmcc Works like a charm
I have been faithfully using this product for 3 or 4 years (Can't quite remember how long its been out!). I use it as a primer under foundation, or somedays as a foundation. It starts off as a white color, then little beads burst and tint it ever so slightly. It makes me glowy and reduces the look of red marks. My skin tone is very fair (Have a super hard time finding a color match for my skin), and this does not darken my skin or turn orange. I hope to never be without it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Piplup My go-to product
I usually use this as a moisturizer before I apply my makeup. If I don't plan on wearing heavy makeup, I just apply this all over my face and some light mascara and I'm good to go. It brightens my entire face up and has no distinct smell to it, which I love. The only thing I don't really like about this product is that it makes my face look slightly oily which I fix by using blotting paper or applying powder after my foundation. I use this product more heavily on my eye bags and cheeks, rather than areas that I don't need it such as my forehead. Really, it depends from person to person. The price may seem rather expensive but a little goes a long way, and a bottle can last you many months.
