Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Foundation:

This is a cream-to-powder type foundation, lightly scented, with a mousse-like consistency. I found it to be light coverage, buildable to medium coverage. After experimenting with different application methods, I achieved the best results just blending it with my fingers. Warming up the product with my fingers seems to have a great impact on the overall finish, at least on my face. I was not able to produce the same smooth result with either a make up sponge or any of the foundation brushes I own. I have combination skin with rosacea on my cheeks and temples. If pressed into these problem areas, medium coverage can be achieved, but there is a tendency of accentuating dry patches (shoutout to other rosacea sufferers). In my case, I believe the foundation will perform much better in spring and summer. On the non-problematic areas of my face, the finish is gorgeous. I noticed a skin smoothing effect and a somewhat matte finish. I've used this with and without primer. Both times the finish was beautiful, but the foundation lasted longer, if a primer was used. I can't imagine this foundation performing extremely well on its own for people with acne, darker discolorations, or very dry skin. However, it does a great job in minimizing pores, evening out my skin tone, and providing a very natural, lightweight finish. It does not settle into fine lines, flare up my rosacea, cause break-outs, or induce any type of rash like skin reaction, which I would often get, mainly from drugstore products. All in all, I would recommend this foundation to people, who don't suffer from fundamental skin issues. If you have slightly enlarged pores, very mild age spots, or a few fine lines here and there, you may want to give this a try. After all, ULTA has a great return policy.

Hard to blend

By Makeupgirl20

from The Woodlands, TX

Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Foundation:

I really wanted to like this. While it wears nice and looks so natural on the skin. I have a hard time blending it out. I tried several brushes & beauty blender. Still it was so hard to blend. Honestly I feel it blends best with your fingers, but I don't like doing that.
So I had to return :(

    Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Foundation:

    This is my go to foundation now. It literally feels like velvet on the skin. Its lightweight, but cover well. Applies flawlessy and easily with a flat top brush. I have extremely oily skin and it wears well when applied with a primer (i use becca ever matte poreless primer). The only con is that it doesnt photograph well under flash.

      Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Foundation:

      This is an awesome product that gets the redness out of my skin and yet doesn't leave it feeling oily. I have a lot of redness to my skin and by the end of the day it is usually worse and I have to be careful because I have oily skin and makeup has usually run down my face by the end of the day. This goes on smooth and gives great coverage to my cheeks, nose, chin and forehead area and completely gets rid of the redness and yet doesn't look like I have caked on the makeup. I highly recommend this.

      Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Foundation:

      I really wanted this to work for me. The product smells great and has a really soft and smooth feel. Unfortunately this product wipes right off, even after setting and with a primer. I do have oily skin, but I have never used a product that wiped off as easily as this. It also was hard to blend into my skin. I tried with moisturizer and without and also with primer and without to no avail. I would not recommend this product to anyone with moderate to heavily oily skin.

          Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Foundation:

          I love the texture and feel of this foundation. It's smooth and silky, yet lightweight. I would have purchased this foundation in a heartbeat if I could find a shade anywhere near my skin color. For reference, I'm C4 in MAC Face & Body, and Dark Yellow in LUSH Color Supplement. On my skin, Japonesque Velvet Touch in Medium Neutral is too beigey-gray, Medium Dark is too orange, Medium is super pink, and Medium Light is pure yellow. I mean yellow...like banana-concealer-yellow. I could have gone with the Medium Light, because it blended the best of all, but it's just a bit too light, and it makes me look pale. I don't want my face to mis-match the rest of me. This foundation has an air-brushed look when it sets, and it has a an almost gel-to-powder texture. I could love this if I found a match.

                  Color Velvet Touch Foundation includes a spatula; we recommend using the spatula to dispense the product onto the back of your hand, then applying and blending using your brush. We hope this helps!

                  A:

                  Because Velvet Touch Foundation features a silicone base, which smooths skin texture and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores, using a primer is not necessary. It is very long lasting worn alone and provides a matte finish. If you do prefer to wear a primer underneath Velvet Touch Foundation, we suggest using the Velvet Touch Primer:

                  Japonesque Cosmetics are made of the highest grade pro-performance pigments and materials. They are dermatologically tested, and are not tested on animals. Some of Japonesque's brushes feature animal hair, which was obtained using cruelty-free methods (no animals were harmed). For those who wish to avoid using animal hair brushes, Japonesque also offers a wide array of synthetic brushes.
