              I love how this foundation applies! It's very sheer and enhances the skin's natural appearance. I ordered the shade #2 which is just slightly too yellow for me (I am very neutral toned) but nothing that is super noticeable. My only real complaint is that it does not hold up for long on my very oily skin. However I do like this very much and will continue to use it on days when I am just running errands.

                Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Foundation:

                I really like this product. I haven't found the best way to apply it for full coverage yet, especially since I have combination skin. It does not last long on my T zone so it isn't great for combination skin, but blends GREAT with my normal skin everywhere else. It is a little too fragrant for me, but was a great buy on sale. May buy it again if I can find something for oily skin I can blend with it.

                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 :(

                    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:
