Color Match:
Ugh - I initially tried to spend less money and purchased the entire kit from Japan. Problem was, the colors available are different.

One company said to try BE-2 ("medium beige"), the other thought OB-4 ("tanned ochre beige") was best. Well, I went with OB-4 and this is way, way, way TOO light.

I ended up purchasing more refills from Bloomingdale's, BR-6 and finally found a good color match. [edited to add] I'm med olive Asian. The BR-6 was yellow enough for me. I usually wear Armani liquid foundation in #8 or #9.

Packaging:

It took me forever to pop in the little cartridge and I'm still not totally convinced I did it correctly because I never heard the "Pop" that I was told would happen. I've looked at instructions from 3 places and all are less than stellar.
Overall:
This foundation creates an incredibly flawless finish. I usually wear alone but I've also worn over a little mineral foundation. It is also fantastic to perk up your makeup for the evening. I added a little blush and did a couple of strokes over my blush.
Downsides:
1. color selection
2. price
3. can't spray over mascara, or any dark smokey eye color.
