Japonesque Velvet Touch Concealer Review & Swatches

japonesque velvet touch concealer

Japonesque Velvet Touch Concealer ($20) is a new concealer that launched recently with the new Japonesque Makeup Collection. Yup, Japonesque jumped from awesome brushes to a brilliant makeup line now too that’s available exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.

This one is a must get!

Japonesque Velvet Touch Concealer 2

Japonesque Velvet Touch Concealer is available in five shades and I’d liken the formula to the incredible creaminess you’d from Kevin Beautymaker Aqua Eye Concealer, Shills Electric Eyes Concealer, and Shills Closer to You.

This concealer is so creamy, so moist, and just positively beautiful to apply and blend. The formula is much like the ones I listed above however, if you’ve never tried obscure Asian brands you might not recognize some of those products. In that case, I’d say you can compare it to a lighter, creamy, less thicker version Bobbi Brown Concealer.

It comes in a tiny 0.052 oz square case with a pretty watercolor design and a mirror inside the case. I choose shade 2 which was an excellent match for my skin tone. Although creamy and hydrating at first it has a drier finish thus the Velvet Touch in the name I guess. It does go a bit velvety but it doesn’t age my drier eyes nor does it creep into my finer eyes. It simply feels like I set my concealer with powder (which eliminates the need for me to do so as well). The wear time is around six hours before I see some fading and feel like I need a bit of a touch up.

I’m pretty impressed with the Japonesque Velvet Touch Concealer! It’s creamy, it blends easily, it covers quite well (I’d say it has sheer to medium coverage), and it brightens up my eyes and gives me the five hour extra sleep look!

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I got a sample of the foundations and I Iike the other foundation, lumminess. For some reason, the same shade color in both foundations is slightly different. .? Weird. It reminds me of a thicker Naked. Fuller coverage, but still natural looking. I did purchase a lipstick in shade 5 . Ver y nice. Will be buying more from this line.

    Last week I mentioned an Amore Pacific product that’s an exfoliator with no scrubbies. It’s called Treatment Enzyme Peel. Playing with it tonight. My hairdresser says she uses it twice daily and loves it. Will let you know if its an miracle product.

    Ooooooo…….. I will absolutely get this next time I’l at Ulta!! I’m always looking for a good concealer, and this sounds like the ticket!

  • Joy

    Musey, I’ve mentioned before that I have a thing for concealers. But in this particular case I’m soooooo mesmerized by the package design I don’t even care about the actual product LOL. I want it and I must have it! Thank you for the review πŸ˜€

    I have a creme blush & it’s just beautiful. I’m purchasing this next time I’m at Ulta, I’ve always felt the Bobbi Brown concealer was to thick for me I had to return it.

    just stumbled on the japonesque makeup line at ulta & i was so confused! i hadn’t heard any buzz online about them expanding from brushes to makeup. the packaging is GORGEOUS and a lot of the products caught my eye. the foundation, lip gloss/vinyl, and these concealers were what i was most interested in finding reviews on so i was SO excited to see this post. the concealer i swatched felt amazing and velvety! i’m resisting the urge to buy everything until some more reviews become available. thanks, muse!!

    • the Muse

      my pleasure heather πŸ˜€ yeah there wasn’t any buzz at all about it! so hush hush of a launch but awesome products! they need to get the word out!

      Ugh. Jealous. My local Ulta doesn’t carry it (at least not yet) so I’ve been waiting on reviews. Want to try a shadow, a concealer, a couple lipsticks, and maybe a few others. Based on Muse’s review, I will eventually snap up a concealer (shade 2 might be too dark for me though if it’s perfect for Muse and this makes the color range worrisome bc I’m pale but not that fair).

    The lipsticks are creamy and decadent feeling. I also love the blush #3. It’s so pigmented and beautiful. I love it more than Nars Orgasm!
