A lot of people seem to think this foundation is orange based or too dark, that's because it was originally developed for Asian skin, and we tend to have medium-to-light skin, be oily/combo. A friend recommended this when she heard I wanted something that could hold back the shine and at the same time provide med-to-good coverage, and this is exactly what it does. For everyday makeup I only need to press once, apply all over with a sponge, conceal, then lightly dust some powder on (Guerlain goes well with the yellow tone) and I'm with a lasting base that doesn't lose its glow even at the end of the day.
I bought my first Shu Uemura blush years ago, can't recall the color now. In between I bought a lot of other brands but suddenly became interested in Shu again because of the awesome pastel colors of 2005 S/S. The one I took home was 33E, a pale pretty matte pink, and now I want P 40 and M 44 and P Amber 84 and on and on and on :P it's light, easy to distinguish because of the clear plastic packaging which is great for color coordination when you're in a hurry. I don't think it's so hard to use: my blusher brush is MAC 129SE and i get color off the blush very easily without powder flying everywhere.
