I don't use foundation much nowadays since switching to bb creams, but when I do this is what I go for. I've tried other brands and this one had the best shade for me as I have a yellow undertone and either I've tried some seemed too yellow or others were too peachy/pink.
I've changed to 764 since a year ago since my skin has gotten lighter and the colour blends in just right.

I like the fact that its not very heavy and that its easy to put on, although oil control isn't the best, but nothing seems to work on my nose which is fine. I also like this as it has no spf, therefore if I'm planning to go out and take pictures with friends I don't need to worry about the flash making my face too white and all.
I'm also really glad that it comes with a pump as the cream version which I considered getting before this came out was in a pot and I didn't quite like how expose it feels. The only down side is that its very hard to get the most out of the product when you're nearing the end >_<

In terms of price I got this for around 38USD in Hong Kong which is reasonable for this sort of brand and I know it sells a lot more expensive elsewhere so I'm ok with it. But it does make me cringe a little considering its only 27ml ;;
Haven't tried stippling with this foundation yet, so going to test it out and see if it saves more product and have a better result than sponges =D It works great with sponges, I'm just not happy that it absorbs more product that I would like. But if you do go for that option I suggest the petal sponge also from shu uemura as its designed with a side that doesn't absorb as much product as normal sponges. (I haven't seen it in the stores for quite a while so I'm not sure if they're still selling that thro ;; )
