    I like how it goes on, but it doesn't give heavy coverage or last all day. A little too shiny until you cover it with a matte powder.

        Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

        honestly, at first i was hesitant about buying this foundation cus i have combination oily skin but this foundation is awesome hands down, goes on smoothly and blends really nice and it's not too much coverage at first which i like but you can build it up also, long lasting and doesn't crease and even drugstore primers or so go good with it and blend together very nicely for a very soft skin finish.

            I love this foundation because its incredibly dewy. It gives the skin a natural glow, I don't even need to wear a highlighter! I recommend using a hydrating primer with this foundation.

                Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

                I have combination skin. I used this foundation with the brand's primer, the foundation looked awful. It just sort of sat on my skin. After a few hours my skin was very oily and the coverage was very light. I touched my face with my finger and the makeup came off, I didn't press hard I lightly touched my face. This would be a better foundation for dry skin and if you are wanting a super light coverage.

                    So glad you're loving our foundations! Pixelated Color Eyelighter in Shade 02 for under eye takes care of darkness while adding a brightness. For your can't fail, old school concealer our line of Velvet Touch Concealers would be great. And not to forget Color Correcting! (Shade 01, yellow).
