    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    I loveeee this product. I love how it matches to my skin, how it doesn't feel heavy or like I have a face full of makeup. It covers all my acne scars & dark spots but still comes out looking natural. I had a Becca foundation before this & don't get me wrong it was good, but this brand is wayyyy better! Definitely would recommend this to others!!

    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    If you have fair skin, this make up is perfect for you. No lines easy to blend from face to neck. I bought this product because someone at the store put it on for me with the luminous highlighter. Both my mother and I purchased the entire line from primer to finish. I am 24 years old, I have light hormonal acne, I use NYX concealer for my blemishes and this foundation and my face looks radiant. This make up does get a little greasy on some people, but I would say it makes my face look dewy... Which I actually like. It never makes me break out, and it blends super nicely.

    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    This is the most expensive foundation I've bought and for such bad quality. It won't cover anything and leaves my face greasy all day long. This is terrible for how expensive it is. You are better buying a drug store foundation than this, don't waste your money on this, big mistake.

              Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

              Oh my goodness.... holy grail of foundation!
              I've been looking years for a good color match, full coverage foundation that could be like make up forever hd foundation. This is better!! It gives my face a very dewy finish. I would advise to use this product with a primer and a setting spray. With the setting spray it lasts for over 12+ hours. It's very lightweight but you can build it up. It can look slightly oily in pictures but you can dust a powder on top if the dewy look is too much for you. It's very hard for me to find a color match for foundation because my skin is so inbetween with deep yellow undertones. Most foundations are too pink for me. This is perfection in a bottle!!!

                This was recommended by the consultant at Ulta. I always used loose powder she said this would give me more of what I was looking for and she was right! I love the coverage this gives me. It does feel a bit greasy by the end of the day but with a little touch up it's as good as the morning!

                    The best shade to go with shade 03 Luminous Foundation would be shade 02 Velvet Touch Finishing Powder. If you wish to set under eye concealer with a brighter shade, shade 01 should be used. Hope this helps!
