Cons

  • Pricey / Poor Value

Best Uses

  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

This is expensive, but a little goes a long way - although I am not one to use a ton of foundation, probably heavier use would give heavier coverage. For me, this is more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, or a BB cream, but not a heavy duty smooth everything out foundation. I like the bottle. It's easy to control the amount you use.

Scent is pleasant. It blends easily and stays put for the day.

MY HG foundation

By HG foundation hunter

from Queen Creek, AZ

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

I am very dry however I got over wanting the matte look and wanted a healthy glow instead. I've been looking for years for my HG and girl I've tried everything.. MF, Bare minerals, Lancome, NARS, Tarte, you name it... Couldn't find a long lasting dewy finish until NOW :D the color match is perfect, it lasts all day, beautiful healthy glow. Medium coverage.

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

I just got this to try it! I thought the color matched my skin nicely! I loved it when I first started to use it and for about 3 months I loved it soooo much! Now... I dunno...I dunno if it is my skin that has changed, but when I wear this foundation now, after like an hour I look like a cracked, cakey mess. I use primer, and I have always used the same primer with this stuff. Like, it wipes off so easily around my nose and mouth and where I touch my face! I make an effort to not touch my face and even when I dont, it still wears off so bad anymore???? I dunno whats going on! It settles in all my lines and makes me look dirty! BLAH! On to something new I guess!

Loved, but couldn't handle the smell

By JohnsonEA20

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Goes On Smoothly

Cons

  • Overpowering Smell

Best Uses

  • Light To Medium Coverage
  • Mature Skin
  • Normal Skin

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

I absolutely loved this foundation! It's lightweight but still gives a fair amount of coverage! I wanted to keep this foundation sooooooo badly, BUT I just could NOT handle the smell. It smells TERRIBLE. The foundation just had the worst smell to it that lingered for as long as I had the foundation on. Usually strong scents aren't a deal breaker for me, but I just can't even explain how repulsive the smell was to me. I wish it wasn't so. I want so badly to buy this foundation again.

    The best foundation I have ever used.

    By Gina

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      This foundation is hands down the best I have ever used. The shades are real skin tones. Shade 4 is a perfect match for my very fair but also olive skin tone. With the finishing powder my skin just glows.

      It goes on flawlessly. I don't use a brush or a sponge; instead I apply it with my fingertips and kind of slap it into my skin. It looks so natural. It's also buildable, meaning I can put a light coat on, and then add more to areas that need more coverage.

      I love the glass bottle and the pump. No oxidation! They really thought of everything.

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I think I have finally found a foundation I like! I am a mature woman with plenty of wrinkles and some large pores and acne scars. My skin tone is not even. I hate to have to look like I am wearing a mask to make my less than perfect skin look nice! This looks nice! It did not settle in my pores or wrinkles, and it has a soft dewy (not oily) finish. I could add layers where needed but it does not look heavy. The color (4) is perfect for my yellow toned skin. No complaints! I'm happy even though it is a little bit pricey for my budget. I hope that Ulta continues to sell it.
