      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I have mature, olive skin and find it extremely difficult to find the right color of foundation. This is the first that absolutely matches my skin tone and I don't have two mix two different colors to get close to the right color. Worth every penny to find something so perfect!

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I was excited to try this after reading the reviews about it's long lasting wear and good coverage, which I can attest these are true! But the one issue I found, it causes breakouts (and I am not prone to breakouts). I would have continued to use the product due to the great coverage but due to the fact it caused breakouts, I discontinued my use.

        Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

        After surgery my skin was very dry and I have been looking for a foundation that wasn't too heavy . I also needed something that was my color. I'm very fair and have not been able to find it until I tried this! It's very creamy, very easily smoothes on my skin and stays all day! I definitely would recommend this makeup!

                  Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

                  This foundation is a great dupe for Lancome Renergie and Miracle. The Japonesque foundation actually has better shades for fair skin than the Lancome. I have been upset that my beloved Renergie Porcelaine 20C has been changed and made too dark for me. I tried the Japonesque in shade 2 and got almost the same thing. I've always thought the 2 Lancome foundations are about the best luminous foundations I've ever worn. The Japonesque is nice alternative since it's about $10 cheaper than Renergie. If you're a fan of Lancome, Japonesque is a must try.

                  This foundation looked like it would be really nice. Looked good at first but wears off half way through the day. Was a little drier than I thought it would be and not really luminous looking as described.

                      Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation is gluten-free. The only Japonesque products which contain gluten are the Velvet Touch Foundation (in the form of AC Wheat Hydrolysate OS) and Pearl Velvet Touch Eye Shadow (in the form of Salacos 168 EV).

                    I have red hair and pale skin, it's nearly white. Every foundation I try is still too dark and doesn't match. Even in the lightest shade! Would you recommend this foundation? If not, what do you think would work?
