BEST FOUNDATION EVER!!!

By Ash

from Columbus

Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

Trust me when I say I've tried everything from drugstore to prestige and I can honestly say this is the BEST foundation I've ever tried and has become my ride or die product! It has the perfect amount of coverage and is very buildable, water-based so it won't oxidize, has hyaluronic acid to help balance and hydrate the skin, is long wearing, and has a natural skin-like finish. I love how lightweight it is for such a full coverage foundation. I'm so glad I finally found my dream foundation! And it doesn't break the bank!

      Comments about Japonesque Color Luminous Foundation:

      Have I actually found a foundation with the perfect yellow undertone for my skin?! Been using this about a wk & it's great! Looks beautiful on the skin! Only thing is that I have to use a brush to apply bc sponge absorbs it too much which is annoying. Very light coverage which I love too but buildable.

              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!

                    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).
