I’m a total believer in taking whatever steps are necessary to have a flawless, even complexion. So, that means that I am all about a wonderful foundation that covers without looking heavy. That’s exactly NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30 does.
An oil-free skin tint to protect and perfect with a soft-matte finish.
What it does:
This oil-free formula wears comfortably, maintaining skin’s natural moisture barrier while working to control shine throughout the day. Transparent Blurring Powders help to blur imperfections, even the look of skintone, and smooth the appearance of pores and fine lines. The powders’ unique, spherical shape compresses like a cushion, delivering a velvety-smooth, touchable feel and superior comfort on application. Vitamins C, E, and broad spectrum SPF 30 protect against free-radical damage caused by environmental stress. Simply touch and go for an effortlessly perfected look.
About NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is truly a unique complexion product. Skin tint is the perfect name for it, as it doesn’t really “cover” your skin in the manner of a traditional foundation, just perfects it.
The color I used is Malaga (Med/Dark1) and it was a bit dark for me, so if you are concerned about deeper pigments with the Velvet Matte Skin Tints, don’t be. The colors come in a fabulous rage of shades. Even though the shade was a bit darker than my skin tone, I just blended it in and my skin looked flawless. Even under my eyes where I have so much darkness, my skin just looked perfectly even.
I’m more of a “dewy” finish girl, so I wasn’t so sure I would be mad about Velvet Matte Skin Tint, but I am. The matte finish is velvety like the name – not at all heavy. As a matter of fact, you skin looks so good and so natural with this foundation, that it’s difficult to tell that you are wearing makeup. My pores and other imperfections vanish when I’m wearing Velvet Matte Skin Tint.
The finish lasts all day without fading or looking cakey. I’m not oily any more, but for those of you that have oily skin, Velvet Matte Skin Tint controls oil throughout the day.
