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 opening shade range is edited, yet still more inclusive than those of many other Asian brands on the market. Its warm yellow undertones also work across a number of non-Asian skin tones and, in the coming year, will work across even more. 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 opening lineup of six shades, designed to fit previously unmet needs of many Asian women, are versatile: fans include Jessica Biel (Shade 030) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (020), and there are more shades on their way. Just be patient! It takes time to develop each color because Orcé starts from scratch, designing the shades around actual people. You can find a helpful guide to shade-matching here.
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 030, which she uses 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.
Come Closer shades include:
010 Finea - very fair skin with neutral yellow undertones.
020 Celaine - fair to light skin with slightly peachy undertones.
030 llūm - medium skin with golden undertones.
040 Novae - medium or sun-kissed skin with warmer undertones. A perfect summer foundation if you are usually a Celaine or an Illūm who tans easily.
050 Kiko - medium to deep skin with warmer caramel undertones. A perfect summer foundation if you are usually an Illūm or a Novae who achieves a deeper tan with some sun.
060 Lura - medium-deep to deep-toned skin with neutral golden undertones.
Not sure about your perfect shade? Check out the Experience Set, which includes three 3 ml / 0.10 fl.oz. bottles of foundation. Once you decide on your perfect match for foundation coverage, you can still use the remaining two shades for contour/highlight application (or even on eyelids).

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.
