I got so lucky getting bottles of this in different colors for cheap. Now, though, I'm sad because no stores in the US carry Shu Uemura. That being said, if I had known, I would have paid full price for this if not for the fact that my HG foundation is only $15 (Boots No7 Lifting & Firming). The coverage is light to medium, but very buildable. I find that it is opaque enough to not completely cover, but certainly make much less noticeable, my worst blemish scars (I always have to use concealer for those, anyways, no matter what foundation I use). I have found color matches in the 700 and 900 series, which I never find in other foundation lines. I love that about Shu. My only option is to buy this online, but I should be good for a couple of years.
