      Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

      I really like this primer. The key is to apply it correctly. I have combination skin with my oiliness occurring in my T-zone, yet this product lessens my oiliness. I make sure to PAT the product into my skin, NOT RUB. Then I allow my skin to soak up the product for a few minutes before I apply my foundation. It really applies velvety smooth and I have less issues with creasing around my mouth (smile-lines). I truly recommend.

        Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

        Made my skin feel soft but didn't provide much coverage as a primer. Didn't do much for fine lines either which they said it would. I felt it was a good moisturizer but that's not what I wanted it for. Used it 3 times & returned it.

            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!

                        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.
