    Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

    I originally got this as a sample from Ulta and really liked it. Even though it is pricey, I took the plunge and bought it. I am glad I did. I use it under foundation (powder and liquid) and under tinted moisturizer. My makeup goes on effortlessly. This primer practically makes my pores invisible and keeps my make-up looking perfect all day, up to 11-12 hours. I have an oily T-zone and this keeps it matte all day without any touch-ups, but is not drying at all. Plus you only have to use a small amount, so this should last a very long time. I highly recommend this.

        I used this for a few weeks and was comparing it with other primers. It did seem to help my makeup last longer. I have oily skin and this didn't make it more oily but did not help control the oils either. It feels very nice but I' did prefer the ofra primer.

            Comments about Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Primer:

            I bought this and Angel Veil primer at the same time. I haven't even tried Angel Veil because of how much I love this. I have combination skin and this is the only primer that has worked for keeping my oils at bay without being a hassle. I tried pore minimizer from smashbox and it sunk into my pores and made my dry spots all flakey and gross. The smashbox original literally made me get beads of oil on my skin. This one just glides over everything. It's so lightweight and the simplistic bottle is beautiful. I will never use another primer. It's easy to put on, keeps me matte all day. I need nothing else.

              Perfect primer, most primers burn my eyes even though I don't place it around my eyes, but this one I can. Makeup application is smooth and very little foundation is needed. Love this primer will never use any thing else.

                  It has fast become my new favorite primer! I was using the hourglass mineral veil primer but have fallen in love with this one! It feels amazing on the skin and my foundation applies so well over it and lasts all day. It fills in my pores and makes my foundation look velvety smooth. I have normal to oily skin and it works great for me!

                        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.
