        I've been searching for a foundation and went through several different ones before finding this one. Japonesque is definitely worth the splurge. It goes on nice and looks just like your natural skin. It lasts all day long without looking blotchy and dry at the end of the day. Will definitely be buying again.

          This caused a bumpy road rash from my cheek to my chin and on my forehead after only a few hours and only worsened throughout the day. So I am not wearing this again. I've only had this happen with one other product before which was a Peel and I'm still trying to figure out what ingredient is causing this problem

          Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

          Japanesque was recommended to me by a salesperson as being cheaper but comparable to the Lancôme i use. I'm open to suggestions but I returned after a week 1) because my eyes were irritated while using. 2) had to apply a little thicker to get even coverage. Way more makeup than what I wear. Went back to get the Lancôme I went in for.

            Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

            I love this foundation for everyday use. It has a luminous finish, so if you apply too much at one time it could look greasy so make sure to go in with a light hand at first then go in another time to cover up any places you need extra coverage, and you definitely need to set this with powder. But once you set the foundation, it looks so beautiful. It makes you look fresh and glowy! Highly recommend for an every day foundation!

                    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).
