Can't wait to try it!

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

I was looking for a semi matte-dewy finish foundation and one of the beauty consultants pushed me toward this product. She tested it on me and I was super impressed. I have very very fair skin & Shade 1 was perfect. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars because I haven't really worn it all day yet.

          Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

          I have an absolute horrible time finding the right fair foundation. Normally, other brands make me yellow or orange-y because they lack the pink undertones. When I came across the Japonesque foundation, I was so excited to see they actually had a foundation with pink undertones in fair! I immediately tried the tester and it was a match made in heaven. I barely look like I am wearing any foundation at all when I wear it! So in love!

            Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

            I was having a really bad skin week when I went to Ulta and found somebody to help me find what was best for me. I have dry skin, but not super dry. The coverage is super buildable so you can use it as a daily foundation for multi purposes. The finish is beautiful, luminous but not too luminous. I even had dry patches when I used it the first time and it didn't dry me out even more, it covered the patches and made my skin look beautiful and hydrated. I'm really bad at applying foundation but this looked beautiful first try. It also is very long wearing, even without primer or setting spray

              I use shade 04, it looks very natural on my olive tone skin. I would recommend Japonesque foundation for light coverage and it is also good for dry skin.

                Was looking for a full coverage to conceal blemish marks, dark spots and even skin tone. Didnt do it for me. Had to build it up quite a bit amd still didn't cover enough. Glass bottle is a worry. Makes the skin very matte and dry. Not good for my 41-year-old skin that has some spots, wrinkles and pores. Makes me look even older. Not impressed

                      Yes, shades 07 or 08 might work best for you! We recommend testing these shades at your nearest Ulta Beauty store which carries Japonesque Color to ensure your perfect match.

                      A:

                      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!
