Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

It's an amazing primer! I feels amazing on your skin, and it makes my makeup last throughout even a 15 hour bar shift! The only con is the bottle design. It'll stop dispensing the primer when there's still a good week or so's worth of product still in the bottle. Besides that it's wonderful!

            Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

            I got a sample of this primer & really loved it. This primer doesn't leave my skin feeling oily like many others do. It made my skin feel smooth & blurred my imperfections. I will be purchasing a full sized bottle.

                Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

                I fell in love with this primer after receiving a free sample. It is true to its name, velvet to the touch and very smooth when applied. I use it all over my face, focusing where my pores are larger (my nose, mainly) and I feel my foundation goes on very nicely and smoothly after I apply the primer. I also feel I get a more even coverage. I recommend this to anyone and everyone, it is great!!

                smoothing

                By Virginia

                from Brooklyn

                Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

                I got a sample of this and it reminds me of the smashbox primer that everyone uses, this one just feels more creamy to me which is a good thing. It's silicone based and I only put it on my tzone and where my pores are visible. I don't put it everywhere because I have combination skin so It'll be dry in other places. It smoothed my skin so nicely and makes my foundation look so much less cakey. It works best if you exfoliate your face before. Not sure how it wears throughout the day yet but if it holds up I'll def be purchasing this!!

                    A:

                    This primer is compatible with all forms of makeup; however, it should not be "mixed", i.e., "cocktailed" with your foundation, but applied separately beneath your foundation. Apply the product to your bare skin before foundation to smooth and prime the complexion.

                    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.
