    I got a sample of this and fell in love! It's so smooth and soft. I've even put it on and not applied make up over it. It leaves my skin looking smooth and soft.

        I was given a face makeover by a rep of Japonesque. I immediately fell in love with this line of makeup. I love the primer so much. It makes my face feel so satiny and smooth and helps the foundation look satiny and smooth.

            Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

            This is a very nice primer. I have rather oily, sensitive skin and it does not irritate or make me break out. I do feel like it helps balance the oiliness. Not a perfectly matte skin remedy, but good enough to get through a regular work day without looking and feeling like a slime ball.
            The Japonesque makeup applies nicely on top, making a good combo.

              Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

              I love this primer! I have tried so many different kinds from both drugstores and more pricey brands and this is the middle of the road. I used to use Smashbox which is still a great product but this makes my skin feel baby soft and has become my new go to primer! Coming from someone who needs it since I use a pressed powder as my foundation this product is an absolute must!

                      A:

                      Velvet Touch Primer does not brighten skin nor does it reduce redness. Wear time varies due to individual factors such as skin type and environment.

                      Japonesque Color does offer one color correcting product, the Color Correcting Crayon:
                      http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12051075

                      Shade 2 (green) is ideal to neutralize redness.

                      Japonesque Color does not perform noncomedogenic testing of any of their products to make this claim. Color Velvet Touch Primer is formulated for all skin types. If you have any concerns regarding an ingredient or formula, especially in cases of an allergy or sensitivity or if you have a diagnosed skin condition, it is always best to consult your physician prior to introducing a new product into your personal care regimen.

                  • Q:

                    Since Too Faced's Hangover Primer has a "dewy" finish which I'm not fond of (I'm sorry TF! But I'm still your fan.)I wanted to try something new until my ULTA Spring Trend Magazine came to me and I read about Japonesque's Velvet Touch Primer that is a weightless gel and has a matte finish!
                    I really wanted to try this product but how do I apply this primer? With my hands? Or a Certain Type of Brush? (Ex. Liquid Foundation brush or a Kabuki brush, etc.)?
