    Comments about Powdery Foundation:

    This is not the same powdery foundation sold by Shiseido in the 90's. Does not apply or look the same. The coverage is poor and it even irritated my skin.

      Comments about Powdery Foundation:

      I would apply powdery foundation lightly on my face with a powdery brush. This product is must have in my makeup bag. Powdery foundation blends well, also lightweight, easy to apply and goes on smoothly. There really isn't anything wrong or bad about this products. I've being using it for about 10 years and love it. I've also had people's tell me It looks natural and it doesn't seem like I have makeup on my face.

            I have used this foundation for over 20 years. It has good coverage, feels great on the skin and the colour range is great. Devastated that it was discontinued and am desperately trying to get hold of some in Australia.

                  This is the only foundation I have been using for over 25 years since a friend of mine turned me on to it. Now it is the only foundation my sister will wear! It makes your complexion beautiful! I'm glad Shiseido started selling it again because I was searching all over the internet when they weren't! Don't ever discontinue it again!!!!

                  This "replacement" powder has nothing in common with the oeriginal powder that created polished porcelan skin.

                    I love using this product alone for light to medium coverage and sometimes over foundation for added coverage. Now I have my two teenage daughters hooked on this product. They love it and don't even want to try any similar product.
