      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I am not "Fair" (as in pale and pink), I am "Pale" and "Olive." That said..... Great lightweight daytime foundation. I've searched high and low for brands with pale olive shades and Japonesque's #4 shade is a terrific light to medium olive tone. Not too golden when blended and almost pale enough to get me through the winter months also. Not peachy at all. Must have some green in it or it wouldn't look so good on me. Great for pale olive skin with a bit of a summer tan. Tends to oxidize on me put on over moisturizer/sunscreen. Definitely needs a primer or setting powder layer after skincare products and before the foundation to keep its color true. Finish looks dewy when put on with a damp sponge and more matte when applied with a brush. I prefer the dewy version, it brings out the dimensionality of the color better.

          I love this foundation, even though it does oxidize on my skin. I would apply this with a makeup sponge to help prevent that. Doesn't wear away. Covers nice without becoming cakey. I would buy this product again.
