Primer, Day 2, is DHC Velvet Skin Coat.
The product is a very thick pasty consistency with a translucent appearance, milky-clear. It is difficult to smooth on evenly, and due to the clearness of the product on the face, it is hard to determine if it has indeed been applied to all areas. I applied it in small areas at a time in order to ensure that I had covered all areas equally. I don't think I succeeded. It is difficult to apply a thin coat of this dense product. I applied the foundation over top and went out for about an hour and a half.
When I returned home, I checked the appearance of my complexion in a mirror. Yikes, not good! My foundation had worn unevenly and there were areas where it had sunk into my pores, and the area around my nose had flaked severely. Under my eyes, crinkles were actually accented because my foundation had sunk into the lines. The product was so drying that it actually appeared that I'd appled powder unevenly on my skin.
And so I can report, without hesitation, that the DHC Velvet Skin Coat did not impress me at all, and I can't recommend it unless you have youthful skin that is very oily.
