    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    I really liked this product for my oily skin even though it's supposed to be luminous. Looks very natural and easy to blend in.The only thing I will say is that it does oxidize a shade or two darker. I wish they had a shade similar to 4, but just a bit lighter.

        Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

        I've never found a foundation that matches my skin tone so well!! I was going to purchase TF's Born this Way when an employee lead me to this product instead. I was weary to try it because I'm used to Dior and Lancôme, but I love this product so far! I'm not really a fan of the smell, and it is VERY moisturizing, so it might not be ideal for oily skin. However, on my dry/normal skin it works great. Haven't discovered whether or not it's long lasting.

                      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!
