Rated 5 out of 5 by kittykitty smooth, lightweight yet provide great coverage
This foundation really impresses me. I tried all kind of foundation from premium brands and this is one of the best I've used. It is very lightweight yet provides great coverage. It brings a natural glow on my face and does not feel heavy at all. No breakout / redness to my sensitive skin.
I need to remind myself each time to apply just little bit which is enough for my entire face. I am too lazy to use the sponge so I just apply it with my cleaned fingers.

Shu Uemura sent me a sample ad asked me to test some of their foundation and I was very satisfied!
I used foundation 774 yellow undertone.
It covered all of my redness.

this foundation is amazing! excellent coverage but very lightweight. I can only use a little bit to cover the entire face, and I can see the glowing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kim78 the best. full coverage beautiful finish
I have been using Shu uemura foundations on and off for nearly 15 years. I have tried other foundations that were available in stores immediately and ended up paying more money for an okay result. I guess I have to be patient because it is so worth it! THE BESTI completely freaked out when I realized I could not order Face architect foundation anymore. The coverage was so awesome... but decided to give this new foundation a try. I have combination skin that gets kind of dry in the cold days. This foundation is hydrating without being heavy. Lightweight yet truly full coverage. find my perfect color. I used to apply my foundation with a brush or with my fingers and I thought the lightbulb sponge would require more product and give me less coverage. Boy I was so wrong. Its a revelation! it really allows the foundation to blend into your skin flawlessly. Unfortunately I have a lot of issues with my skin. visible pores, acne from time to time, dry patches, a little redness. This foundation is THE BEST and I almost feel like I have good skin:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by cdubinsd Buildable coverage, beautiful finish
After trying virtually every foundation on the market over the years, this is hands-down the best foundation I've ever used on my combination skin. It gives a no make-up look while providing excellent coverage & lasts all day with barely a touch up. A wonderful product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by yuc12 Recommend the sponge rather than the foundation
Good things about the foundation: dewy finish, long lasting and never oxidant. But there are several points I just cannot ignore: hard to pick my shade. 774 is too bright while 564 is too red for me. And it is alittle dry for my combination to dry skin. Recommend for combination to oily skin.
What worth mentioning is that the sponge is phenomenal!! Better quality than beauty blender. So much dense makes it my everyday foundation blender. Hope they could sell it seperately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BonnieJean Why Can't The Sponge Be Purchased Separately???
I have Several deluxe samples of this foundation but it seems that part of the draw for this IS the sponge. If I'm going to try it, I'd prefer to try it With the sponge And considering there Is No applicator out there Like this, I don't feel I'm able to sufficiently "try" this foundation accurately without it!
Please... Send one or at least a mini version out to try OR have the sponge available to purchase, stand-alone. Thank You

Rated 2 out of 5 by emikat bring back Face Architect
this product has some of the same values of FA, quality, color but it does not set in. I have normal/dry skin, mature. This product does not set well and will come off onto my clothes. Not sure why Face Architect was discontinued a beautiful full coverage finish that was light weight and natural. have found another product during the time that FA was not available which has similar capabilities as FA (MU4ever).
