    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    It was always difficult finding the right foundation for me. So hard that I resorted to BB creams instead of foundation. Alas I have found my holy foundation with this! I've always been a fan of the Japonesque brand, and though pricey, they are top quality and all of their products are made in Italy.
    I have asian skin with a light/medium shade with yellow undertones. Unfortunately all other foundations I buy either are too light, have too much pink, or have too much orange or brown in them. This one was PERFECT for me. I got shade 4 and I only put it on part of my face and it blended right in. It has light to medium coverage; enough to cover pores and lighten acne scars. Goes on real smooth, non sticky, dries quickly and doesn't settle into a sticky finish. You get a big bottle (compared to other brands) and the pump is amazing control. I no longer have to look further for foundation!

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I have very fair skin, so color matching is usually a problem. Often I feel lucky to find a good color match and give up on finding one that addresses other concerns (like sensitive skin, lightweight feeling, etc.). This foundation from Japonesque is perfect and meets all my needs! The color blends beautifully (no tell-tale lines) and feels invisible on the skin. I have normal to dry skin that is sensitive and have had no issues at all with this foundation. I'm thrilled that I found it!

        Amazing shades! I can never find a perfect color. This foundation stays all day with the setting powder and never looks caked in my lines. Thank you Japonesque :)

          It is a nice product although doesn't stay too long and needsto be a little more heavy in order to cover user's skin imperfections.

          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

          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!

          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.

              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?
