Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush in 03

Hello gentle reader.

When Ulta held a (not so) recent beauty steal event, one of the products I decided to pick up is the Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush in shade number 03. This blush normally retails for $22.00 but I was able to snap it up for a mere $11.00. Eleven dollars very well spent, as it turns out.


Look at the box. It goes with my blog, don't you think? *grin*


The packaging. Oh! The packaging! Gentle reader, it is gorgeous. The heavy plastic is smooth, silky and as shiny as a polished piece of agate. The corners are rounded and the compact feels lovely in the hand. This is luxury level packaging for a mid tier makeup product and I love it.


The front view. I can't stand it! Oh! So nice! Just look at that subtle bevel and the rounded corners! You should hear the solid snap! when the packaging is closed. So satisfying.


Have some details. We all need a little information. I need to learn how to photograph shiny packaging without showing the reflection of my camera or self.


Inside the compact is a cake of beautiful pink toned coral blush and a mirror in the inside of the lid.


Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush in 03 and my favorite brush for applying this particular product, my Luxie Lush Large Powder Brush.


A swipe and brush blended swatch on the back of my hand under my OttLight.


The same swatch in direct sun. This lovely pink leaning coral has an ultra fine gold shimmer that gives an instant highlight in the sun or bright light. No need to apply additional highlighter with this pretty stuff. Unless you want to.

Japonesque Velvet touch Blush in 03 is a finely milled, smooth powder that applies and blends in like a dream. There is a little powdery puff up when a brush lands on the cake but there is no fall down on the face upon application. Wear time is good for me with this blush. It wears all day without needing to do touch ups all the time. I had to do a light touch up one day after about eight hours of wear. Colour me impressed. And happy to recommend this beautiful blush to you. If you would like to experience this blush, you can find it here.

Have you tried the Japonesque Velvet Touch Blushes? Do you like? Love? Please do tell.

Thank you so much for reading and have a beautiful day!

  3. Gee, how did I miss that Ulta event? What was it? I can't believe you got it for half off!!!! I am absolutely in love with the packaging for the entire Japonesque makeup line. I would love a blush or eye shadow palette. But the Ulta near me doesn't carry the Japonesque makeup in the store, and I want to see them in person before choosing. Grrrrrr I love the blush that you bought. Maybe I'll just go with it.

  7. Ulta does a promo every year. 21 Days of Beauty or something like that where they offer a special deal on one product, while supplies last. You can get a great stuff for a good price.

  8. Isn't it, tho? It looks like a polished gemstone and has a lovely heft in the hand.

  9. So do I. Everything about this blush is a win.

  10. Oh, of course. 21 Days of Beauty is in March and September usually. I thought you meant, like, last week lol. I got a nice eye palette from Stila at half price in the Spring event. I don't believe that we had the option in store to get the Japonesque blush. I should've kept my eyes open for the online sale products. And I even did a blogpost about the event. Oh well.

  16. I was a derp during the last one. The Too Faced heart shaped bushes were half off. I put one in my cart, almost pulled the trigger, decided to wait until the next morning and... They were all sold out. I am still kicking my own ass.
