Non-comedogenic serum-foundation with medium, buildable coverage and a semi-luminous finish / 1 oz
Orcé Come Closer Foundation, and the Orcé Cosmetics brand overall, was developed to celebrate a broader range of Asian skin tones with specific makeup shades that weren't offered by other beauty brands. Its updated range is more inclusive than those of many other Asian brands on the market, and it works across a number of non-Asian skin tones, too. We have never come across a brand so committed to a modern, empowering celebration of a broader view of Asian beauty — and Orcé presents that mission in an exquisitely executed product.
Come Closer Foundation’s dreamy, oil-free, serum-like texture has a semi-matte finish that stays all day and can — brilliantly — be used as a concealer, as a medium- to full-coverage foundation, or mixed with a moisturizer for a sheer tint. Its buildable, breathable coverage is nearly undetectable on skin (aside from the fact that it makes it look absolutely perfect.)
Its new lineup of opening lineup of twelve shades, designed to fit previously unmet needs of many Asian women, are versatile: for example, fans include Jessica Biel (Shade 40W Illum) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (20W Celaine).
And Come Closer’s ingredients — all non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin alike — actually help improve skin over time with ground Tahitian pearls for a brightening collagen boost, anti-inflammatory evodia fruit, and clinical levels of hyaluronic acid. While these ingredients were chosen to address the unique needs, qualities, and concerns of Asian skin, they're stars for all skin types.
It’s no wonder Orcé has already developed a strong following that includes actors Jamie Chung and Ally Maki, designer Stella Simona, makeup artist Daniel Martin, dermatologist Dr. Annie Chiu, and plastic surgeon Dr. Christie Prendergast. Dara adores Shade 40W, which she uses from time to time as a concealer.
Come Closer's formula is not quite as squeaky-clean as many of our skincare products, but some silicones are required to get its marvelous effect, and we're OK with that. It is entirely free of fragrance, oils, gluten, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and talc.
The Come Closer shades are listed below. If you used Orcé's first set of foundations, we've listed them next to the closest new shade; please note that they have all changed slightly, so we recommend sampling before buying a full size either in store or with our Custom Sample Service.
Because we know you'll ask — Orcé does no longer offers their Experience Set with retailers, but with our sample service, you can sample any color you wish! And if you'd like help navigating and narrowing down the options, just get in touch with our Guides: email or call us with other foundations/tints that work for you, and we'll come up with some options.
One last tip: check out founder Yu-Chen Shih's application secrets in our Orcé Brand Spotlight, which you can find here.

How to Use
2. Start with a pea-sized amount of foundation (about half a pump) - a little goes a long way. Spread the serum-foundation evenly over your face using fingers or a flat foundation brush.
3. Blend with a sponge or brush for a luminous, naturally radiant look.
4. If you desire a more matte finish, lightly dust on setting powder to set and keep skin looking fresh all day long.
- Evodia Fruit Complex: This has been used as a skin-soothing agent for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. It boosts radiance, improves skin texture, and protects the skin from environmental stressors.
- Hyaluronic Acid: Our skin cells naturally produce Hyaluronic Acid in an effort to maintain moisture, but the effects of aging and negative environmental factors reduce its production. It works wonders for any skin type (from sensitive to acne-prone) and has been clinically proven to help diminish wrinkles, firm, tone, and plump the skin.
