      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I have been to ulta twice. Both times I have went in seeking help to find a good foundation that would not make my face oily. The first time the girl got me to try one that she uses that didn't make her face oily. So I bought it and tried it for a month every time I put it on after about 3 hours my nose was oily and I'd have to go wipe the oil off. So I went back in told a different girl what had happened and she suggested this one to me. I got home and was so excited to see if the one would actually work. The next day I tried it and after about an hour my nose was oily again not as bad as before but very noticeable. I'm not saying it's a bad product it just didn't work for me and I have had two bad experiences with asking for help.

                Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

                I have tried so many foundations which includes Mac, Urban Decay, and Tarte. This formula from Japonesque is literally the only foundation that matches my skin PERFECTLY. I am Tan with yellow undertones so sometimes it is hard to find a foundation that matches my skin color. A lot of the above brands I mentioned have neutral or cool undertones (better suited for light skin tones), which leaves me looking very washed out. I was pleasantly surprised when i tried this product on a whim at the store and found that it was my perfect shade that i've searched high and low for!! I use it everyday and it gives me beautiful coverage with a dewy healthy glow!!

                This is great for hispanic girls like me with golden undertones. My shade is #8

                      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!
