Perfecting Luminous Foundation is a very sheer- to light-coverage, dewy finish, liquid foundation for someone with normal to dry skin. It has a great soft texture that feels light yet still hydrates. Most of the shades are nicely neutral and worth considering by light to medium skin tones. Camel is an OK option that may be too orange for some medium skin tones.

Note: This foundation contains fragrance, so is not the best for sensitive skin or for use around the eyes.

Perhaps best known for her years of work with supermodel Cindy Crawford, makeup artist Sonia Kashuk's well-chosen selection of makeup has been available exclusively at Target stores since the mid-1990s.

 Kashuk's brushes have been a strong point, and now that they've been redone they're better than ever, and still affordable. This is definitely a makeup collection worth visiting, and you'll find some premium options among Kashuk's powder foundation, regular powders, and blush. Several other products, from foundation to lipsticks, are also worthy of attention, though this is not a line that caters to darker skin tones. Ironically, it's the latest cosmetic products that met with the most critical reviews, largely due to poor execution or their gimmicky nature.

Note: Sonia Kashuk products are also available at select Bloomingdales locations in New York and California. The company also maintains freestanding stores in New York and New Jersey.

    overpowering scent
    • I have sun damaged, post menopausal skin which means wrinkles and dryness. i sampled this foundation with reservations as Paula cautioned that it is fragranced. That proved to be an understatement. It is strongly scented and does not dissipate. However, it does go on smoothly, and otherwise worked well for my face. It was sufficiently emollient and didn't settle into the the "crevices" around my eyes and mouth. I gave it a 3 for good value as it was $10.99.

    Nice product-tough shade selection
    • I agree with Paula's review, the finish of this product is very good. Between a creamy foundation and tinted moisturizer, I did not find the "luminous" descriptor accurate, but the texture and weight are flattering for my over 40 skin. As Paula's review states, color choice is difficult as the tube is opaque and does not match the product color. I purchased 03 cream, which by number and packaging would seem a light/medium neutral. It was too dark for me, I would have to mix products to use it.
