"My new favorite primer! I didn't think much could beat Porefessional, but this product has my undying loyalty, and I'm scared to run out. I love the mousse formulation, I love how smoothly it goes on, I love how it evens out my skin and makes it feel incredible, I love how long it makes my makeup lasts- big call here, but it's the best primer I have EVER tried.

"I've been using Melli's Velvet primer since it was released on all my clients and in my workshops teaching women how to apply makeup.
It is honestly amazing, I've used many other primers however this one is certainly a stand out. Not one woman that i have put it on has given purchasing it a second thought. It does exactly what it says it will do, wear it on its own or under your foundation. You will LOVE IT. "Sandra Glynn Makeup Artist
"Today's shopaddict purchase is Melli Cosmetics 'Velvet Silk Perfection Mousse Primer'. There have been numerous favourable reviews of this product in the papers recently. It is as good as they say. I used to use Clinique's Porefection Pore Minimizer but this product is far superior. It smooths out skin tone, neutralises redness and fills pores. It's not at all greasy. I have been wearing it on its own, with no foundation or powder over the top at all, and have had comments on how nice my skin looks. This, in the middle of biting Sydney winter, is a compliment indeed. Lasts most of the day (I guess it would last longer if I stopped touching my skin to feel how smooth and nice it is!) and is an excellent base. Have thrown my Benefit Benetint and Clinique into the dustbin! This is the only primer I will use from now on. "
Introducing VELVET – the new, first step in your make-up routine.
VELVET Silk Perfection Mousse Primer is just that. Worn on its own or under make-up, VELVET is your skin, but better.
Like a magazine art director, the velvet-touch mousse primer retextures your skin to give a luminous matte, soft focus finish. It will also smooth fine lines and any skin imperfections with its innovative line and pore filling technology.
Silicone gel works to absorb oils whilst delivering a soft, lightweight and silky feel. VELVET's active ingredient White lily Bulb flower extract, gives emollient and antioxidant properties to keep the skin nourished and help reduce the appearance of pores.
Made in Italy, the mecca of beauty, VELVET is non-colour specific and is your answer to creating flawless skin or the perfect make-up base.
Directions for using VELVET:
Apply a small amount of VELVET onto clean fingertips or a small brush and gently blend into the T-zone and cheek areas of the face. Can also be used to smooth under the eye area.

"I first got onto this product when Embarrassing Bodies was in town and we were filming on the beach on the Gold Coast, I needed a primer that was high quality, light weight that would help seal pores and fight shine and that was when a colleague introduced me to Melli. I flipping love this product! This lightweight mousse reduces pores, fine lines and skin blemishes, even ones that are crusting, to give a beautiful smooth surface. Melli is a touch more expensive, however a little goes a long way, also I do not mind paying for quality. I recommend this for more mature skin, oily skin and I even use it on myself and clients that are preparing for a long (read: sweaty!) day using the product on your T-Zone to counter any shine. "
