NARS velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30 Makes makeup Life simpler With Sheer, natural protection

The new NARS velvet Matte Skin Tints ($44 for a 1.7-oz. tube), coming in 12 shades January 15 to NARS shops as well as the NARS website, as well as February 1 to NARS counters
It’s a strong statement to state that I like a foundation after only utilizing it three or four days, however that’s all the time it took for me to see exactly how NARS velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30 rocks.

I put it with its paces last weekend on my three-day trip to Monterey as well as Carmel, as well as I can’t keep in mind the last time I believed my skin looked better, whether in genuine life or pics. I believe when you’re on getaway — and, presuming that you’re using makeup on that getaway because, let’s deal with it, on some vacations, like beach getaways or long walking tours, you don’t always want to wear makeup, particularly a full deal with of makeup — that’s a great time to truly test a new foundation, since you’re out as well as about for long stretches of time as well as most likely taking numerous photos along the way.


Also, as well as perhaps this is just me, however I don’t like to spend a ton of time on my makeup when I’m on vacation, particularly very first thing in the morning. I can typically tolerate costs about 15 minutes (ideally less), however then I want to be out the door since experience awaits!

I can state with absolute certainty that new NARS velvet Matte Skin Tint — which is truly just a elegant name for a tinted moisturizer with an practically fabric-like matte surface — is the sh*t. based on the essential vacation/low-patience-for-makeup test, it completely checks off all the best boxes.

In some ways, NARS velvet Matte Skin Tint is a great deal like that superstar of the NARS foundation line, Pure Radiant tinted Moisturizer, of which I’ve gone with bottles, as well as on which I’ve gotten numerous buddies hooked. And, mind you, these buddies don’t even wear makeup on the regular, however they still like Pure Radiant.

Yup, it’s that good, as well as this new one, velvet Matte, is just as great, if not better.

Like Pure Radiant’s finish, this appears like genuine skin, however it still evens out your skin tone. Also, once again like Pure Radiant, velvet Matte Skin Tint includes broad-spectrum SPF 30, together with additional skincare bells as well as whistles like vitamins C as well as E.

“This oil-free formula delivers NARS’ signature natural-looking surface as well as radiate manage with the skincare benefits of an all-in-one treatment. NARS’ ingenious velvet illusion complex innovation produces a soft-focus impact with a soft-touch feel. transparent Blurring Powders immediately improve the look of skin by assisting to blur flaws as well as even tone — naturally dimensional skin that doesn’t look flat, masked, or chalky.”


The protection is sheer however build-able as much as medium, by the way, so don’t expect it to cover every single freckle or imperfection. My freckles as well as moles peek through, however I’m completely fine keeping that best now. I’ve been loving a much more natural look lately, however I believe you truly have to like that whole, “What, me? Am I using makeup?” look to appreciate the finish.

As for the formula, just as lightweight as NARS Pure Radiant. Seriously, at some point I type of just failed to remember that I was using makeup. It’s SO comfortable.

Where the two — Pure Radiant as well as velvet Matte Skin Tint — truly differ is finish. Pure Radiant’s is dewier, although Skin Tint isn’t totally flat, however I believe that if you’re all about that matte life, and/or you have oily skin with a great deal of natural dewiness already, then Skin Tint would be the much better choice.

Funny thing is…I’m not always a matte surface gal. many of the time — OK, perhaps like all the time — I’ll select dewy over matte since I feel like matte foundations, as gorgeous as they are, especially in pics, can appear somewhat aging since of exactly how they tend to work out into pores as well as fine lines as well as look heavy as well as cakey, however this matte surface looks fresh, extremely natural as well as youthful.

I believe this poor girl’s gonna be like the Taylor Swift of the tinted moisturizer world. Soon, everybody as well as their mama’s gonna be speaking about it, as well as you’re going to be seeing alles über dem frickin-Platz.
