not for oily skin

By evon7686

from Modesto, ca

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

one of the makeup artists at ulta applied the japonesque primer and this foundation to my face and it looked so good that I bought both products. BUT the next day when I used everything on my own it did not look at great. the foundation is luminous as it states, I prefer demi matte or matte. And it didn't cover my dark spots very well. I had to blot a lot because of the shine. I am oily combo skin type. this may work for dry skin the best.

It's okay, but not that great

Pros

  • Doesn't transfer
  • Good Pigmentation

Cons

  • Causes Breakouts
  • Difficult To Apply
  • Doesn't Stay On

Best Uses

  • Light To Medium Coverage
  • Normal Skin

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

I tried this on in the store while looking for a new foundation and liked it, but the lighting was deceptive as the shade I chose was too dark for my conplexion. Unofrtunstely, all the lighter shades had pinkish tones so if you are fair skinned with golden undertones there are no shades for you. The formula isn't too heavy, but not particularly lightweight either, and it has a tendency to gum up my foundation brush very quickly. It does blend fairly well and I can get decent coverage, but after a while it does begin to wear off and starts to look cakey. It also caused my skin to break out, somethingnit rarely did before. It doesn't transfer like some other similar products I've used, but that's the only thing that really stands out. Overall, it's not a bad foundation necessarily, but it's not great for my skin type, and just isn't worth the price in my opinion.

    Pros

    • Lightweight
    • Matte Finish
    • Nice Packaging

    Cons

    • Doesn't Stay On
    • Emphasizes Dryness
    • Not Luminous
    • Oxidizes
    • Patchy
    • Poor Coverage
    • Pricey / Poor Value

    Best Uses

    • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin
    • Light To Medium Coverage

    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    Not luminous like it claims, extremely patchy, oxidizes as soon as you apply it, hard to blend, dries fast to a matte finish, emphasizes dry patches you didn't even know you had. Not worth the money, I don't care how pretty the packaging is. I've tried better drugstore foundations than this.

    *If you do plan on trying this out make sure you get a shade down from whatever shade you would normally get since it oxidizes, best for oily skin, make sure your skin is moisturized too, and work quickly with blending it out, plus use a sponge vs a brush.

          I wear 03 in the Japonesque powder. Is the 03 foundation the same color/tone?

          • Staff Expert

            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!
