Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

It doesnt have a full coverage affect if your broken out & if you have oily skin, it makes it worse. It was ok when i tried it on in the store but using it as an all day foundation it doesnt work.

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I love this foundation. I use shade 04 as I have a more olive-yellow based undertone to my skin and it's great! I have dry skin so it definitely helps that it has a more dewey finish to it and looks great in photos. I have a very maintained skin regime so I usually have normal skin, but I am more prone to dry skin ESPECIALLY when winter comes and the humidity comes out of the air, but I can imagine that this foundation would be great for people with oily skin as well as long as you set it with a good powder and primer!! I can't vouch for that, but I don't know how it would do for longevity with people who have skin that produces a lot of oil because sometimes when I wear this I find myself having to blot some of my shine throughout the day, but for people with normal to dry skin this is great!!!

        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 am loving this foundation in shade 04 with setting powder in 03. What would be a good under eye concealer to match?

                  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).
