          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.

              Easy to use Light coverage foundation that OXIDIZES INTO AN DARK ORANGE MESS. I have dry acne prone skin and it worked well for that, but could not stay one color.

                    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).
