    I have been using this foundation for coverage for soooo long. I will NOT use anything else. I have tried and never been happy with anything. It's so easy to apply, it feels nice on my skin and it covers exactly what I want. LOVE IT!

      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!!!!

        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.

          BRING BACK THE ORIG. POWDERY FOUNDATION!

          By LT

          from Bay Area, Ca

          Comments about Powdery Foundation:

          I've been using the powdery foundation for more than 15 years and I have to say this is the best powder out there up until it was discontinued last year. It was again available but somehow they took out the sunscreen or modified the powder and the color and coverage is just not the same. I have bought all the new powders by Shisedo that came out but there is nothing like the original powdery foundation!! I don't understand why they are taking away the best selling product!!! Please listen to your loyal customers Shiseido and bring back what was working!

          Comments about Powdery Foundation:

          I Cant believe this powder is back!! I have worn this powder for many years before it was discontinued and it made my skin look airbrushed flawless. There was no layering required to achieve a flawless canvas. It would even cover my blemishes & flaws in a snap with one swipe of the sponge. I felt like a porcelain doll without the heavy makeup. When I was told it was back at the cosmetic counter, I bought it in a snap with a big excited smile on my face. And if I had a tail, my tail would be wagging. As soon as I got home I applied the powder....VERY DISAPPOINTED! Its not the same formula! It feels nice & light on the skin, but it doesn't give that same great wow factor coverage it use to give. No porcelain skin, not the same great coverage. Just average. Going back to my near great powder. That's why I CANT believe its back.

          Dear Shiseido, please bring the old formula back! and I will love you forever.
