          I have difficulty matching my skin shade. Would prefer a foundation / CC cream with SPF, but this foundation matches my skin so it's a "keeper" for the time being, as everything else about it works successfully.

              Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

              I have been to ulta twice. Both times I have went in seeking help to find a good foundation that would not make my face oily. The first time the girl got me to try one that she uses that didn't make her face oily. So I bought it and tried it for a month every time I put it on after about 3 hours my nose was oily and I'd have to go wipe the oil off. So I went back in told a different girl what had happened and she suggested this one to me. I got home and was so excited to see if the one would actually work. The next day I tried it and after about an hour my nose was oily again not as bad as before but very noticeable. I'm not saying it's a bad product it just didn't work for me and I have had two bad experiences with asking for help.

                      Yes, shades 07 or 08 might work best for you! We recommend testing these shades at your nearest Ulta Beauty store which carries Japonesque Color to ensure your perfect match.

                      A:

                      The best shade to go with shade 03 Luminous Foundation would be shade 02 Velvet Touch Finishing Powder. If you wish to set under eye concealer with a brighter shade, shade 01 should be used. Hope this helps!

                    Are there any samples of these foundations? I am not sure which color I am. I have gone through your color identifier but it didn't help me very much.
