Stemming from shu uemura's expertise in oleo technology, multi-glow oil complex and buildable oil complex signal a new way forward for natural glow yet with high coverage.

Includes a revolutionary sponge, "the lightbulb", designed and shaped for tapping and creating a glowing finish.

Side A (the wide side) is a glow enhancer. Use a tapping motion to spread the foundation around your T-zone, cheeks and neck.

Side B (the pointed side) is a glow controller. Lay the sponge and adjust the glow to control radiance.

use the lightbulb sponge with this formula. tap with the wider to the entire face and neck, apply in circular tapping movements to achieve a glow. Followed with the smaller end to control and adjust the glow at inner corners of eyes, nose wings and corners of the lips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sad I was given this product as a gift and it’s the best foundation I’ve used. Unfortunately they do not carry darker colors and can’t even find the one that I now have. Whyyyyy? How am I to buy more ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation The foundation is smooth and good coverage. The lightbulb sponge is easy to use. My only complain is it is hard to find the right shade when purchase online. I hope the company may consider give out free foundation samples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful effect on dry and mature skin I never order foundation online, but was desperate for truly yellow-based shades. So glad I took the plunge with The Lightbulb! It is amazing for my skin concerns of dryness and discoloration. I've never found a foundation that was so dewy and moisturizing while still offering such excellent coverage. It doesn't "dry" though so you'll want to set it with powder or mist if that's a concern. The fact that Shu has actual *yellow* tones (not just "warm" or "cool") is a lifesaver for me. All of those things combined make The Lightbulb well worth the price for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love with it OMG, i finally found a foundation that can look good on my dry skin. The finish look is flawless and the color match me so good. I had 2 pumps and it gave me full coverage. Dewy and glowy look. It lasted all day. Thanks to Shu eumura. I highly recommend this product. I have medium beige shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light, dewy, buildable coverage This foundation applies smoothly and lightly; a thin layer would give good enough coverage if you have fairly good skin, but coverage is definitely buildable if you need more. It is not cakey even with multiple layers and looks very natural. The sponge that comes with it works very well with the foundation, and it lasts quite a long time so it's worth the investment. I have dry to very dry skin, so I stay away from super matte foundations but I don't like a super glowy finish either. This one gives me the perfect finish I like - not too matte, not too shiny. It also doesn't dry my skin so definitely recommend for those like me! I even got my sister to use this, she has combination/oily skin and this is her daily foundation for work. For new buyers - numbers starting with 7 has a yellow undertone and 5 has a pink undertone. Shu uemura foundations are generally more yellow toned so keep that in mind when purchasing it!
