Update III: Not a bad foundie, but I've found better for me. Not enough coverage, no shade that truly fits, and somewhat hard to apply evenly. GA & YSL is a much better fit for me. I tried at least.

UpdateII: I completely misjudged this product. After trying this in two shades, 774 & 764 I completely gave up with shu and started wearing GA, but still not being completely happy. I finally came back to try this once again, after trying 15+ more foundies. I finally figured out I am more of 564. This was a tough road, since I don't live close to a Shu counter and the color #s are little hard to figure out. Hopefully this turn into HG, or at least a two time purchase. For reference I am a NC25/30. Also, Concealer Givenchy Mister Light #4 matches Shu 564.

I really like how this gives me a natural polished look, though it is somewhat sheer. However I think I got the wrong color. I picked up 774, which looks way lighter than EL DWL #1 & Chanel Nude/1.

Update: I finally got 776, and it's too dark/yellow. During my trial run, I noticed that my skin felt tighter and dry. Although it was not a color match 776 seemed to cover my imperfections better than 774 and it did not end up looking like a dead mask. Thinking that I might have judged 774 wrong, I went back to try it again. Now I think it might not be too light, but it actually makes me look dead, almost like a kabuki mask; and it did not look even half way descent over my trouble areas.
So either I go with the Jandice look 776 or Kabuki Mask 774. I'll take neither. Back to EL DWL 01..uhh the search continues.
