JAPONESQUE Velvet Touch Foundation Review

I recently reviewed the JAPONESQUE Luminous Foundation and I mentioned that I would be reviewing the Velvet Touch Foundation next. It has to be noted that I am a firm lover of the liquid foundation format but I am not averse to trying out others so I was really rather curious to try this cream format.


Feather-light whipped skin enhancer for a beautifully translucent matte skin base. Its imperceptible second-skin texture melts into the complexion leaving a weightless 'airbrushed' finish and velvety feel. Available in 8 shades.

My thoughts

Of the 4 sample shades I opted to try SHADE 5 which wasn't so bad for me. It was slighter warmer than my skintone but blended in it just meant I didn't need to add bronzer to warm it up. I don't know whether it was because of the cold weather but getting it out of the sample pod, the texture of the cream was quite hard but warmed up it was silky smooth to apply and blend. Actually it was really nice blending it in as it just appeared to melt into my skin, covering light blemishes and evening out skin tone. The finish is velvet and matte, skin feels wonderfully soft and smooth and looks it too.. I have to say I liked it a lot and the foundation lasted well, despite me having a cold and having to use tissues regularly. Flawless, smooth and long lasting, Velvet Touch receives a thumbs up from me. A great winter foundation.
