Shu Uemura – Stage Performer Instant Glow

Shu Uemura Instant Glow


This immediate radiance skin perfecting cream works as both a moisturiser and primer which should be applied before make-up. It is a stage-inspired beauty cream to renew fatigued skin in a flash, inspired by shu uemura’s Atelier artists. Today’s fast-paced lifestyle means women often suffer from dull-looking skin with imperfections. Instant-glow returns skin to an ideal state to create beautiful skin for beautiful make-up.  With instant-glow, skin should immediately appear more luminous, smooth, translucent and remain hydrated for 24-hour care. In 4 weeks, skin should feel healthier, revitalised and renewed, while pores should be less visible.

Shu Uemura Instant Glow


Cutting-edge inner-glow technology enhances make-up’s appearance because its dual-action formula contains high-performing ingredients.

Outer Action

Inner Glow Complex is made from patented Chroma Adjuster, Micro-pearl, Diakalyte, which functions to perfect light diffusion for natural silkiness, and to adjust skin tone while respecting its natural colour. This innovative Chroma Adjuster with corrective chroma-spheres releases pigments upon application in order to unify skin tone and provide radiance. It achieves optimum effectiveness to even the complexion. HEPES enhances exfoliation to re-texturise the skin’s surface with conditioned micro-relief.

Inner Action

Citrus Complex, made from the extracts of Sweet Orange and Bitter Orange, boosts micro-circulation to revitalise the skin for a rosy complexion. Meadow Foam Seed Oil smoothes skin texture, and Ginkgo Extract aids in the formation of an anti-oxidant skin defender. Depsea water enhances skin translucency by hydrating for optimum moisture.


With just one stroke I did see amazing visible results as the rosy and translucent cream formed a veil of perfection over my dull, blotchy skin to instantly brighten and even out its tone whilst minimising the appearance of pores. My foundation did look better when applied over this luminous sheen which created a naturally dewy look.

Not only did my skin look but felt smoother, softer and healthier. It did help to keep my skin hydrated and I think even those with a dry skin type would feel comfortable wearing it in the daytime.

With long-term use I do believe this moisturiser would improve the skin’s overall appearance to make it even more flawless.

Although I’m sure the results with long-term usage would be fantastic, I’d personally wear Stage Performer Instant Glow for a pick-me up a couple of times a week when my skin is tired or I’m heading out.
