    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    I do not recommend this foundation for oily skin. When you apply a layer your face looks like a greaseballl. Not full coverage and if you try building it up your face begins to look cakey. I wore it out to the grocery store and when I got back home it looked like it had melted right off.

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I have sensitive skin (prone to eczema and Rosacea with breakouts)so it's a challenge for me to find the right foundation. I have resorted to using concealer, which never covers the areas I need or just going bare despite the redness. I have tried powders, tints, concealer, solid foundation, liquids but all they tend to have SPF, which breaks me out more. Thankfully, the Luminous Foundation by Japonesque does not have SPF plus had the coverage by skin tone from fair rosy to deep yellow based skin (did I mention that I have freckles with a rosy undertone?). The coverage is buildable -definitely suggest using a brush but hands or sponges might work well, too. I really feel like this product provides good coverage for the redness without any heaviness or dryness. Worth the money.

      beautiful skin like finish

      By laura

      from western mass

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      I kinda purchased this on a whim and recommendation from the sales person in store because they did not have my color in the born this way foundation I was going to repurchase. I have normal to dry skin, fair and neutral in tone. I found a perfect color match and suits my skin type though if you are straight dry skin I don't think this would be that dewy on. It's more of a natural finish with slightly luminosity. Light to buildable medium coverage but looks very natural and skin like, not at all heavy which I found the born this way could look when built up. My only minor grip is it does break down after 6 hrs or so but with a primer and setting spray can get another hour or two of good wear. Very happy overall.

        Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

        This is the best foundation I have ever purchased. I used Bare Minerals for a long time but hated that it was not long-lasting and the coverage wasn't always the best. I have very fair skin tone with just a touch of pink undertone. Finding the right shade of liquid foundation without yellow undertones is tough for me. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this on my face.
        I don't have to use much to get the coverage I need, Its very build-able. It also last all day!
        I would recommend this product to red-heads or anyone with very fair skin.

            Just what I was looking for. Gave me a subtle glow for the winter so that I don't have such a pale look. Not shimmery but just a glowing finish.

            it's okay

            By Sarah G

            from Phoenix , Arizona

            Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

            I bought this yesterday and I really am not sure if I like it. It matches my skin perfectly but I tend to get really oily throughout the day and it completely melted by the time I left work. While I was putting it on in the morning I was told this was a full coverage foundation by the associate but it definitely is not. It's a light coverage foundation and the more I tried to build it up, the more my face started to feel really cakey.

            It's unfortunate because I really thought this would be a great foundation and I'm alway open to trying new items but I'll be returning it as soon as I get a chance.

                  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).
