My go-to

By Callan

from Ohio

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

It's a little expensive but I tried it once when it went on sale and I will never use anything else. It matches my skin perfectly covers well without caking and looks so smooth and radiant. One bottle lasted close to a year for me and I do my make up almost every day! Try it out and see if it works for you!

    Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

    I got this when it was half price and Im really liking this. I got 01. This blends great with my beauty sponge. It doesnt feel like a mask and sit on top of my skin. It doesnt smear if you touch your face. Its like a foundation should be. It lasts and makes my skin look healthy. It doesnt cling to dry patches on my skin or smell weird. I'm very pleased with this Japonesque Luminous Foundation and I highly recommend.

          Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

          I use this product with the Y6 morphe brush, I really think that the better way to apply it would be a beauty blender so you could get the full coverage look that you want. If you have oily skin I do NOT recommend this product for you. I have super dry skin, and sometimes it is still too oily for me. I do feel like this product is not for all day wear, if you were wearing it to a night out you wouldn't have a problem with it coming off. Overall I like it so far!

            Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

            I believe this is my Holy Grail. I received help at Ulta in Lancaster Ohio from Alex, (She was wonderful). I explained what I was currently using, and had used for years and years was not working on my face anymore. It was cakey, creasy and needed more touch up than I had the time for throughout the day. I am 57 years old with some redness and broken capillaries on both cheeks. This Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation held up more than anything I have used (and believe me I have used a lot high end and drug store brands). I also purchased the Japonesque Luminous Primer with this purchase. The foundation was a "hot buy" at the time at half price. The next day I went to Mass, then the grocery store, and when I got home I was amazed that nothing needed touched up. I got into my car and went back to Ulta and purchase another bottle. It was not on the "hot buy" list the next day, but I believe I will be purchasing this again and again. I am blonde hair (somewhat highlighted) blue eyed again with some redness (not much) combination skin (oily nose forehead and chin somewhat) I am thrilled with this product after one day of use.

            Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

            I was hoping to really like this makeup, it isn't too pricey and the most important thing is that the company doesn't test on animals. I'm not crazy how I can't seem to find the right way to apply this makeup, I've tried using my hands from a sponge to a brush. The coverage is pretty good but not as luminous like I was hoping for.

                So glad you're loving our foundations! Pixelated Color Eyelighter in Shade 02 for under eye takes care of darkness while adding a brightness. For your can't fail, old school concealer our line of Velvet Touch Concealers would be great. And not to forget Color Correcting! (Shade 01, yellow).
